I would recommend

We chose The Brennity because it had a large independent living section. The apartment sizes here are very nice size. The residents are very friendly and welcoming. It does seem that they have been short staffed recently. I would recommend to others looking.

He loved it!

We specifically chose this community because it felt more like a resort hotel, it did not feel institutional or hospital like. You can rent small homes, apartments, they have assisted living and memory care. The residents can roam indoors and never run out of places to go. Nothing is locked down so you are free to go wherever whenever, the residents have a sense of independence. They have basketball, bocce, lakes and a swimming pool. So if grand-kids come to visit they can swim in the pool, or do the other activities the community offers. Our only issues we had is with the nursing staff, their communication was horrible. They did not seem to know what was going on, and we figured out because the traveling doctor told us they recently lost the head nurse so it was taking awhile for the new staff members to get trained,and everyone was always so apologetic. However, putting the communication aside, the care they showed our loved one was wonderful, this was truly the best place he could of been at. He was only there for two months before passing but our family had such a positive experience.

Overall a good community for loved ones

They are putting in good efforts to bring back the activities, but they are still pretty limited. We do think the value for cost is appropriate and we would recommend The Brennity community to others.

Going downhill

When we first moved in ,this was a beautiful southern mansion style facility. It’s been remodeled to look like a dentist office with no awareness of geriatric safety, tile floors for main areas very slippery in rain and a hard surface to for falls. They havehad 12 managers in 12 years! Corporate offices in Texas . Recently added recreational area which over 80’s could not use- anyone want to push a 4 foot chess piece? In the heat of florida with no shade coverings? No triage medical services- don’t be fooled by claims for on site nursing for Independant living. No small market for basics like milk. Expect at least 3% increases in rent every year. The remaining staff is great and trying very hard! Apartments are a nice size and include washer and dryers., but make sure the rug is replaced before you move in.

I highly recommend the place

Our experience has been great so far, she loves the food there it is serve restaurant style for every single meal. The chef there is great, the community is very nice and clean. The staff members are always friendly to us. The activities were limited for awhile due to the restrictions, but now they are starting to bring things back and let the residents walk around freely.

Would not recommend

I am thinking of taking my husband out. He has fallen and they do not know how he fell. The first time his medications were due for renewal, they waited until he ran out so they could use their pharmacy instead of VA> they did tell us they were gonna take him and drop him off at his appointments. They are very understaffed and when you talk to the director he says they are not understaffed. They have 1 nurse for the entire facility, that is for independent living, assisted living, and memory care. They have their doctor come in without any authorization and prescribe sedatives for memory care patients. Overall it has not been a very good experience.

At the moment would not recommend this community

We haven't been able to visit since April, and the communication has severally been lacking between the staff members and the residents and the staff members and the families. Our loved one fell outside and she had to get herself over to a tree to get yourself up and the staff didn't know about it. She had also fallen in her room, she was able to pull the cord to get help but the staff members did not tell us about it like they should of, we had to hear about it from our loved one.

[Name removed] gave us a great tour. Was very nice, 2 saltwater pools were a surprise! All the staff were very cheerful. I do like the fact that it is a gated community.

felt welcomed when we arrived however we felt rushed right into the tour without many questions regarding our loved one. Facility was nice but we didn't get the "warm fuzzies" we had at other facilities. Was a little surprised the monthly fee changes based upon how much money you put down. Totally wrong to do this.

Living at The Brennity

My wife and I moved to the BRENNITY,Melbourne Fl in May of 2018. When we moved into our cottage it was very nice, - people were friendly, employees were friendly and helpful, and the food was delicious. Around the last of November or the first of December everything changed for the worse. Decisions by local managers as well as people from corporate changed our transportation arrangements, we had to wait three weeks to go shopping (at Christmastime!), we could only get free transportation to doctors on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and extreme costs were charged for other trips. The food became noticeably worse and folks began to move out. After a short period of time a group of home office employees came in and had a meeting with all concerned residents. All of the local managers subsequently disappeared, and some of the home office people were assigned to get things in better shape. One of those folks was assigned to the kitchen and dining room and the food returned to very good with a good, experienced person left to manage until a new, permanent, manager could be found. The temporary Brennity manager, [name removed], has made a wonderful difference. We will hate to see her leave us. Thanks for the opportunity to leave these remarks. [Name removed]

Mom really liked The Brennity. So many activities for the residents and she specially liked the 2 swimming pools - she would be able to swim year round! Very clean and she said that everyone was very pleasant and friendly.

This was the best! The residents, as well as those that worked at Brennity I came across seemed extremely happy. The atmosphere is bright and cheerful with many options of activities for the residents to take part in.

Terrible Experience

My stepmom wanted to leave after a few months. Everything was distasteful, especially the food, but the rude management, too. The residents are too afraid to speak up because they get bullied for telling when something is wrong. When things break, they are too cheap to fix them and the residents suffer. If they complain they are humiliated. For all of this, the price seems to be the highest in Brevard.

Not Happy Relative

My Aunt tells us she wishes she could leave. She says she is not treated respectfully and the food is hard to eat. She wishes she never went but now it is hard to place her someplace else.

Aunt Not Happy

My auntie tells us she is not treated well. We really don't know where to put here, but we wish we had not put her there. For the money, she is not well served.

Brennity---Trying to Help the Residents - Loved one of resident/client
Brennity-----The Actual Happenings

The Brennity is very emotionally demeaning for the residents, from the management on down. Residents seem to live in fear of telling the management their true feelings about the Brennity . I am seeing things from the outside as a friend to a resident. I feel very sad at the poor food, which seems to be thrown at them like slop. They seem to accept it like dogs who have no choice. I hate to be so blunt but people do need to see beyond the pretty exterior. I am not giving my name so my friend do not get into trouble. I could cry at how the management treats the poor, elderly and defenseless grandmas and grandpas. The Brennity seems to know that once they get you, you can't go anywhere else. Hence, you can be treated poorly and have no recourse.
