  • A Caring and Competent Staff to Trust your Loved-one With

    After looking extensively for a Memory Care facility for my mother, I chose GBMC of McKinney. I looked at 9 other places before deciding. After interviewing multiple staff members and family members of residents, the choice was easy. What I heard from them has been borne out since my mother's move around 4 months ago. The caring and competent staff here is what makes the difference. The Director is special and does not sit in her office with the door closed. She is very accessible, hands-on, and very kind. The same can be said for the RN. They both put a LOT of energy into making sure the residents are getting the best care. The rest of the staff is equally competent. When looking at other facilities, I found a number of them were newly built, but the staffs at those places just didn't compare very well with Grand Brook's. Also, though Grand Brook's building is not new, I didn't want to make the mistake of choosing the building over the care. Therefore, my choice was easy. I highly recommend Grand Brook of McKinney as the place you can trust leaving your loved one at their most vulnerable time in their life. Note: if there is a negative, the only area which could use some improvement is in the facilities maintenance department. This is hardly worth mentioning since the actual care is so much more important.
