Home Away From Home

I've been completely surprised at how wonderful it is here. The director is absolutely amazing [date removed]. He was born for this job. He knows everyone's name and checks on everyone daily. He appears to have good relationship with the rest of the staff - no tension there. Everything is top notch. They have activities all the time. My loved one has a better social life than my husband and I do. They treat the residents so well here. We were worried about moving our loved one, but she is so happy and has just blossomed here.

A friendly place to live

We chose this community because of the friendliness of the staff, they spoke to every resident we walked passed on our tour. The other reason was the dining room selections, they have specials and it is an actual book menu where residents get to make choices. Even post COVID, they are still able to make choices the night before, and then it is just brought to their room. It also smelled clean when we walked in the door. They had sufficient parking for the visitors as well. The room sizes are good.

Karen, thank you for your review! We treat our residents like family - we're so glad you were able to observe that on your tour! Our dinning director takes pride in their culinary creations for our residents.

Not top notch

Not Sure yet. My mother has been there two months. She has reported at least 4 times going to activities that were listed on the calendar and sitting there and nobody showing up, and then asking at the front desk and being told by staff they'd 'go find out' and then the staff never returned to tell her. Also reports understaffing, no staff to serve meals so the front manager had to come to the dining room to help serve. Salads served with wilted dead lettuce. We are paying for bathing service and my mother reports they have not been coming to assist her as they are supposed to so she has not been bathing, or she has been going in to do it herself which she should not do. Since that old lady died of scabies in the other Georgia home and the state did not investigate that home as they were supposed to, I'm very nervous about any failings such as the above as it shows they are not on the ball, and then I have to worry how not on the ball are they. I put good for the activities because when they happen they are great. My mother loves the musicians that come in. She's enjoyed the befit classes. She has made friends and met some really interesting and good and sweet people, so all these things are a relief to me. But the other stuff needs to be improved for me to feel my mother is safe. I just spent 20 minutes on the phone with her waiting for someone to come after she'd buzzed for someone to find out if they could help her with a bath (they were supposed to assist her yesterday and no one ever showed up.) and this time, no one ever showed up to her buzzing. So she had to go try to bathe herself. The fact the above things go on though shows a lack of respect to the elderly. If they think they won't report it to their families? Will we not find out they are not bathing our mother? We will not be there to witness them giving my mother a plate of salad that is dead and wilted and black?

Not intersted in independent to assisted living facility at this time. Also, not interested in all inclusive: 3 meals, laundry, housekeeping. Too expensive for my budget. 1 Bedroom very small and not enough natural light. 2 Bedroom better but too expensive.

Satisfied with the stay!!

My wife has recently made the move into this community and so far she has been satisfied with how things have been going for her. She has made the transition easily and has made some friends since she moved in with the other residents. One of her complaints would have to be that the meals need improvements. They can not seem to ever get her order right and have had complications with the quality of the food. I also am disappointed that some how the staff have managed to break three of her hearing aids that she needs.

Caution! - Loved one of resident/client
Beware

Run, do not walk away from this community. Completely lacking in leadership, management that is here lies constantly. Staff is resigning and there is no Executive Director. Under staffing is problematic. [Removed] is rampant. [Removed] is the norm. Stay away.

Not a good place as of March 1, 2017

Stay away from Brookdale Dunwoody! As of March 1 there has been no improvement in the food and yesterday it took 40 minutes for my parent to be served a dinner entree. At dinner they always run out of soup and desert. There is no security being taken to protect residents. Front door is open at night and there is no one at desk or in lobby. Since Christmas many residents have left because of the non caring attitude of management.

Too Good to be True? I hope not.

My Mom moved here from a Brookdale community in Texas about 30 days ago. What was expected to be a trying transition turned into a wonderful experience. The staff and residents at Brookdale Dunwoody have welcomed her with open arms and treated her with incredible care.

We Saw The Best Apartment While Touring

Out of all the tours we had, this community had the best size that my sister wanted. The apartment is able to accommodate all her furniture. The tour itself was fine and they gave us a complete walk around of the place. I was able to get answers for my questions. Now that she is living here all is going okay.

Need a renovation!

I was not impressed with this community. It was a bit out dated and the carpet needed to be changed. Also the units were not very nice. I did see the residents doing a group activity and they gave us a good tour. We just did not like the community look itself.

Residents are not safe and food is horrible

My parent has been at Brookdale Dunwoody during the transition when Brookdale bought the facility. Brookdale Dunwoody has continued to go down in services and my family and I are looking at other facilities. The food has reached a new low since my parent has been living there. The community of residents has had many meetings so management is well aware that residents are not happy with the quality, presentation and variety. My parent has told me that some residents will no longer eat in the dining room. But my family and I are most concerned about the lack of security in the building. Since August there have been many thefts in resident apartments. I was told that three weeks ago, during Sunday lunch, two apartments were entered by thieves - doors left open. There is no security of the building - anyone can enter without identification. Residents do not have electronic keys for outside doors (like other facilities have) so the very old password for outside doors allows lots of people to enter. Management has been aware of the theft problem since August and nothing is being done. I have been told by a new resident that management tells new residents not to bring anything valuable to their apartment. What a sad situation that a senior citizen has to worry about being robbed in their residence!

Brookdale was a very nice facility as well; I met with Stacey and feel like she really listened to me as I explained my Mom's situation and needs. Brookdale is significantly more expensive than [Removed], but may be possible if my Mom is able to receive benefits as a survivor of a veteran. However, I don't feel Brookdale had any advantages over [Removed] and I actually think [Removed] may be a better fit for my Mom.

The staff here is nice and they seem attentive to the residents. The facility is clean. So far, things are going well and we have not had any problems at Brookdale. We are getting settled in pretty nicely.

Review of Brookdale Dunwoody - Atlanta, GA

This facility is located next to Emory St Joseph and Northside Hospital. The exterior is beautiful and the interior is attractive. Its not the friendliest place I have visited though. And there were some off-putting odors in the dining area and in some of the hallways that concerned me. Its certainly not cheap and for the price I would expect more.

After moving Mom into Brookdale I would not hesitate to recommend this community to anybody that asks. The staff is friendly and my Mom couldn't be happier. She loves the residents and the staff. She also enjoys the activities. As her daughter I couldn't be happier with the location! I would say that if you are looking for long term care you should tour this community at the very least.
