Carol Gilbert - My loved one(s) live(s) or lived in this community
Both my mother and I love living at The Park.

My mother is 94 years old. She has been at The Park for almost a year. She loves it and I love it. I'm from California, though my sister lives in Chicago. I just returned from a 3-week visit there. I stayed in my mom's room, with no charge to me, for 3 weeks, so I experienced first-hand the day-to-day life there. Without exception, the entire staff is very caring and helpful. They are all very respectful to the residents, often suggesting things that could improve their stay. My mother broke her arm the day before my recent visit. Within a day of that event, someone from The Park came to talk to her and let her know the services available to her through Medicaid and through The Park. The next day, a nurse came by, and that week physical and occupational therapy began. The Park arranged it all. Mom mother had a minor fall a couple of days before she moved into The Park almost a year ago. When she moved into The Park a few days later, The Park arranged for Xrays to be done there in her room so my mom didn't have to travel. Recently, her doctor sent The Park nurse an order for routine blood tests. The Park will arrange to have the blood tests done onsite. This is an enormous convenience, as it is difficult for my mother to travel. The food is wonderful. My mom and I had dinner every evening in the dining hall and I looked forward to it. It's obvious that great care is taken in the choices of foods and preparation of meals. The chef is friendly and open to suggestions, though to me, it was perfect, delicious. There is entertainment after evening meals at least 3 times a week, usually singers who sing songs familiar to my mom's generation, my generation (I'm 67), and a few surprises. I sat with my mom and watched many performances. There are bingo games, which my mom likes, and evening movies regularly. People have organized mah jongg groups and card games. A resident can participate as much or as little as they want in the many activities. They can be social or stay in their rooms and be alone. There is no social pressure to participate. There is a Park bus that goes to many places that residents would be interested in, even doctors' offices. And the bus driver is exactly what you'd hope for: he makes sure the residents board the bus safely and get off the bus safely. He's a good natured guy who takes his job seriously. There's a maintenance staff available 24 hours a day, which is important in case unexpected events happen, a clogged drain, a spill that a resident can't handle alone, and even TV repair. The maintenance staff is friendly and generous with their time in getting jobs done. My bottom line is that I feel that my mom is safe at The Park, and my mother does, too. She had several friends living at The Park, which made the transition a little easier. They all said good things about it so she was familiar with it before moving in. She had been living in the family home for 40 years. As I said, I am grateful that a place like this exists for her.

Looked nice.

I liked the tour, and the tour director answered all of my questions. The facility appeared well maintained and clean. The lobby area felt a bit too "busy" and not a good fit for my loved one.

Brookdale Niles (formerly known as "The Park")

My mother moved in recently to The Park, now known as Brookdale Niles. It is an exceptional retirement home. Good food, nice people and very helpful staff. Joanne, our contact, stayed in constant communication with us throughout the entire process. She always remained patience and upbeat with us and answered all of our never ending questions. I highly recommend Brookdale Niles for your loved one.
