Overall the community is a good place for your loved one. It is neat and clean and the staff is very friendly. They take good care of our loved one and they have activities avalible. I would recommend this community to others based on our experience.
Everyone there seems to really care about our loved one and treat her like family. They call her by her first name, the staff are extremely cooperative and communicate very well with our family. She also really loves all the meals they serve.
We do think the meals and dining service is pretty good, but right now due to covid the food is being delivered to their rooms. The community has a calendar that lists activities for the residents, and there seems to always be a good amount of things for the residents to do.
[Name removed] was a wonderful tour guide and the apartments had a good layout. The community seems very friendly. We are still exploring other available options and haven’t made a decision yet but this community is high on the list so far.
My uncle lives here and has for several years now. He is 89 and absolutely loves it!! the staff is wonderful, caring and friendly. He still lives in his own little studio and has his independence. He loves the food and the friends he has made keeps him social. Highly recommend this place. The cost is very reasonable compared to other places.

This is a very nice community, everyone from the staff to the residents is very open and friendly. My wife likes her room and I like seeing the progress she has made being here. She likes taking part in the activities. I even joined her in the dining room one evening where we enjoyed visiting with the other residents during dinner and the food was very good. there is a nice courtyard out back and a small swimming pool as well.
As an avid gardener, finding a comfortable community was important for my dad. We were looking for a community with an inviting outdoor feeling and location. Brookdale Fremont caught our attention with its views of the hills, mature trees in the neighborhood, and the raised garden beds that were available to residents. On my first visit, I was aware of the positive feeling around the facility and the smiles and warm greeting that was offered by both the staff and residents as I toured the community. (The experience was repeated when I returned with my dad.) I was also pleased with the size and layout of the one bedroom apartments; almost all have a bay window in the bedroom. I like Brookdale because it offers independent and assisted living services in the same community, either in a limited capacity while living basically independently, or on a more involved service level when needed. The menu appears to offer a reasonable variety of entrees, with a nice salad bar and some fresh fruit available. The dining room offers 12 hour service (7am-7pm), with a limited menu available between scheduled meal times. As mentioned in other reviews, the dining room is experiencing some slow service issues, but they appear to be working to find quality servers who meet their expectations. While making a move like this can be challenging for a senior, the Brookdale staff appears to be interested in doing what they can to give the community a welcoming feel and helping the residents adjust to their new home.
My stay at Brookdale Fremont was a short respite stay of only 2 weeks following hip replacement surgery. I live alone, so needed a place with food service and available care services to recuperate. The "star" rating system of this review did not give me the option to write "not applicable" to the categories of "Care Services" or "Activities", neither of which I used, so cannot comment on. Residents I conversed with seemed to like the activities. The food was to my liking, and I never left the table hungry. The dining room service needed some minor tweaking to better handle the most crowded times, which management seems to be actively addressing. I had conversations with many long-term residents during my short stay, and didn't encounter any serious negativity about the facility. People seemed proud of how long they'd lived there. The location was central to a number of medical facilities and other outside businesses. I only used the transportation service twice, but it was personal and reliable, going beyond what I expected. Financially, the charges for my stay were reasonable, and I plan on staying there again for future planned surgeries. The staff was very friendly and always helpful. A great place to consider for one's personal needs.
We are pleased with Brookdale. The food is a 5 but the service is a 3, they seem to be short staffed. It's located in a serene location.
