After speaking with a representative from a place for mom, I decided to have a tour of Cogir. I was very impressed and decided that day to move in. It is a beautiful spot with lovely people working and living here. They also pay the electricity for your car!

The staff from the front desk workers, to the maintenance team and the management team have all been super friendly and attentive. Our loved one does not eat in the dining hall so we aren't to sure about that experience but she does say the meals are really good.
Cogir of Sonoma Senior Living is just a great place and we would definitely recommend them to other families.
Our family had an in person tour and the community is extremely nice, but it was a little bit tougher of a drive and the price was just too high for us.
Most of the staff was very good. There were attentive and truly caring. The apartment was clean. But one of the major reasons why I put my loved one there and chose that location was the food that was presented to us in our luncheon tour. And once she moved in, the food did not compare in any way shape or form after that point. Their kitchen staff is terrible. Inmates at the local prison get better food than the residents at Cogir of Sonoma. I met with the executive director about it, and he was very nice. But it didn't look like there would be changes anytime soon. I wouldn't put a family member there because the food is so bad. I had never seen so many thin people in my life. The meals are so small, nothing at all like the big meal they served us when we toured, which apparently was all for show.

Thank you for your feedback. We take all comments seriously and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to reach out to our Executive Director for solutions. Thank you and have a nice day!
I would recommend this community to others for their loved ones. The stay has been good for my loved one as well. The staff are friendly and caring towards to the residents. The location is good for family visits.
We saw 5 different place and we really liked the friendliness of the staff members, the room set ups, and the whole setting, it was very calming. It was far and above the best out of the ones we saw. it has been wonderful and they have handled the most recent covid outbreak well. My father has been very happy here and I would recommend them to others who are looking.
The communication is good between the staff and the family. They are quick to get back to us if we have any questions. The food could be better it's not as good as they made it out to be. I would recommend this community to others
What stuck out to us about this facility was the location, it is only a mile from us. The apartment was also just the right size and layout for what she needed. I had several friends who had parents who were here as well so it had a good reputation. It is a very nice group of people who work here, they are very accommodating to my mothers needs. I would absolutely recommend them.

Thank you so much Amy! We are so happy your mom is part of our Cogir Family!
They are a very clean community. They always have staff around which really helps my mom. It makes me feel good to know when we can’t be there that she is well cared for. Food is good but not super consistent. They just got a new chef and things are getting better. Plenty of outdoor space. It is a very nice well run community. A lot of the employees have been there for a really long time which tells you a lot.
Brookdale Sonoma is a beautiful community. My parents really love living here. They choose this community because it provides them with the quiet comfortable independent living space they needed. They provide light housekeeping in my parents two bedroom apartment. The community is kept exceptionally clean. Right now it is messy because they are replacing the carpets. They serve three meals a day of excellent food where my parents enjoy eating in the dining room for two meals a day. As they've gotten older they do not eat that much. The staff is caring and available if they are needed. There are plenty of activities for the residents to participate if they wish to. They provide a printed sheet full of daily activities. I personally like it because of all the activities they offer; trips to the casinos, art classes, jewelry repair classes, bridge, trivia and movie nights.
Brookdale at Sonoma, Food service manager[Removed] doesn't know what is she doing when it becomes to treat her employees right.. I am a kitchen manager with many years of experience and I was looking for a place for both of my parents and she was yelling at her employees like if they were animals, putting them down because she said to have a degree and she said that they don't know how to do their job!! Incredible!!... bottom line as a manager you have to teach how they suppose to do their job!! I wouldn't like to have my parents treated like that or even my kids.. This Brookdale is situated in a really nice area and it looks wonderful. You can tell that all the employees work super hard to get the job done. I just wish that the kitchen manager was a little bit more human when it becomes to managing her team, school don't teach you that!
My mother told me she is happy here.She is just starting to get involved in exercise classes and she has gone on one outing. My mother is very picky about food and she really likes the meals at Brookdale. She is eating much better than she was.The people here are so kind and it is a good fit for her.
Did not visit. But, assuming they follow the same guidelines as [Removed], my mother would automatically be placed in memory care with a diagnosis of dementia, regardless of stage or current level of independence
The place is in very good shape. The heating system needs improvement. They have a flyer posted so that you can see the different activities they offer everyday. they have bingo and movies you can see downstairs.
They do an excellent job here overall! The facility itself is clean and well kept, the staff are friendly, and the care and services they provide all seem to be very good.
The facility seemed 'tired' (e.g., stained furniture and rugs in lobby), which made me wonder about the care given to the residents. I also didn't like the layout of the building (too isolating).
Being in residence since June 2013 my experience is limited. However I previously lived in a retirement community in Petaluma, CA. Because I arrived during a transition period, Manager Webster left, Wendy has been on limited duty since she had other responsibilities that have made her less accesible to residents. My single meeting with Wendy was to deal with the very limited rebates for absence of a resident for more than one week. i discussed 2 [removed] Meal credits of $5.00 per diem apply only after 2 weeks away. Given the $11.00 charge for a guest meal this is very small . Rebate should apply after an absence of one week. There is no provision for resident disposal of non-biological degradable items...batteries, inkjet cartridges, etc. This violates a Sonoma County statute. So far there has been no management response This meeting was in August. No Town Hall meeting was scheduled for October. The so-called committee that receives resident complaints has not provided any report to residents during my stay here. I don't know who the members are. My impression to date is that there is no real oversight by management, limited orientation for new residents, a kitchen with overworked wait staff, no busboys, and no one supervising the effectiveness and training of of the dining room staff.
