Enjoy the good life

We moved our sister in law [name removed] into Brown Deer Place last November. That was the best thing we could have done for her. [Name removed] was living at home by herself and her health was getting the best of her. Since her arrival at BDP her health has improved dramatically. She now gets three delicious meals a day. We no longer worry about her not eating. She also has made many new friends to keep her company. We also like BDP is conveniently located close to stores,doctor offices, banks,and about any where you might want to go in Coralville. Our decision to choose BDP was easy after we met the staff. [name removed],[name removed] and all staff members are truly professional and ready care for their residents. There is no doubt that when my wife and I are ready to take it easy and enjoy life,BDP is where we will be heading.[Name removed]

Brown Deer Looks Great BUT NOT GOOD CARE

Looked great at first, but our mother said the care was not what you paid for meals were terrible, chef quit, fed Mexican food 3-4 times a week. Elevator broke all the time and she was on second floor. Bed bugs on lower level by bingo room found in some ones room. how does this happen in an assisted living facility??? The maintenance man was the nicest man there and the most caring. The little gal doing the interviewing doesn't have a clue what is going on, or the Manager for that fact either. I would NOT recommend this place to anyone. We have since moved our mother , where she is getting great care.

Visit Brown Deer Place, I promise you will not regret it!

I read the previous review and I have some changes to make. This community used to be known as Windmill Pointe, which gave it negative reviews but it has has since been bought out by Senior Housing Companies. It was renamed Brown Deer Place and underwent a multi-million dollar renovation. The reviews though, did not get a renovation because the negative ones from the previous owners and name stuck with it. The community is absolutely beautiful and having seen it prior to the renovation, I would say that has easily improved tenfold! They do have their own transportation now with both a van and a bus. The activities that are offered are great and there are so many things to pick and choose from! Go tour Brown Deer Place, I promise you will not regret it!
