The community does seem to have some trouble hanging on to the staff, but the staff members that are here are very friendly. The management team could use some improvements, sometimes it doesn't seem like they are doing their job, but for the most part it is a pretty nice community.
The residents can request anything they want to eat, and the community is willing to fix or bring the requests to the residents. They have lots of activities for the residents to participate in. My mom is here and she loves it. They do a good job of communicating if there is anything that comes up so you can be there for your loved one.
The community has great care for my loved one. They have activities, good food, and if the pandemic wasn't around it would be better.
During check-in we thought everything was really good. The rooms were very clean and well taken care of. With COVID my parents have complained a little bit about the good quality. One issue we are having is with the inconsistencies of their COVID policies with the family members. It seems like it changes constantly, and the family members are not advised of these changes until we show up to visit our loved one. The communication between the weekday crew and the weeknight crew is off, as well as the feedback to the families. The other thing is the landscaping. The do really well keeping things clean, however their are palm trees in front of our loved ones window that is blocking their view, and apparently they only get trimmed every two years. However, we would recommend this community.
The community is wonderful. My mom was super excited and enjoyed in the community. Everyone at the Gardens went out of their way to assist us in getting my mom out of her former community, and moved over to The Gardens. During the process of my mom being in the former community she came down with COVID. The community was extremely supportive to the family. The Gardens followed every protocol in keeping all residents and employees safe during this pandemic. They haven't had any cases of COVID in the community. This wonderful community made sure to come in clean and sanitized my mom's room twice a day. The Gardens immediately had physical therapy and other services waiting for my mom to get started and helping her settled in. If I ever needed a place I would look to see if any communities in my area were associated with this community. It is a wonderful place.
The Gardens at Brook Ridge have been a blessing to our family. After my father took a bad fall in 2018, it was necessary to move my parents into assisted living. We are so thankful there was space at The Gardens because my family couldn’t be more pleased with the care and attention my parents have been given. After a severe stroke, my mother entered hospice care and the Gardens was able care for her in my parent’s apartment. Not only did they care for my mother alongside hospice services, but they cared for me as as I sat next to her until her final breath. I don’t know what I would have done without the love and care from The Garden’s staff. They have continued to give my father assisted care since my mother’s passing. My father has shown great improvement since then and I credit it to the staff at The Gardens. They make sure he is out of his room daily for social interaction, help him with walking therapy, book his medical appointments, administer his medications, transport him to all his doctor appointments, and keep my family updated on everything that is going on. I thank God every day my Father is in a place with people that are able to help him with his special needs all the while showing compassion and love which I never thought was possible from a facility.
Again, very impressed with engaged staff. Original tour guide not available and it appears I was unexpected, but they were flexible and accommodating with giving me a tour and answering my questions. They arranged for me to see both their Independent Living and Assisted Living complexes. Nice and clean facility. 3-meals. No ice machine. No recliners in Theater. A bit far from my parents' Weslaco comfort zone.
My wife had reached the point in her life where she could not take care of herself. She was confused, had memory loss, could not communicate and wanted to be outside. I could not take care of her and was afraid that she would walk outside and get lost. I looked for an assisted living with memory care facility. The Gardens at Brook Ridge was mentioned as the best facility by people whom I trust. I contacted [name removed] and made an appointment. My wife and I visited several times. [name removed] and all the staff were very professional and caring. I noticed during the visits that my wife was very comfortable there. Estella and all the staff treated all the residents with wonderful care and sensitivity. My wife has been there for a month now. I, our daughter, and friends have noticed that my wife is again the person that we had not seen in a very long time. We are so grateful to have her back. She, again, is a delight to be with. She has excellent nutrition, activities to engage her mind and excellent medical care. From what I have seen, all the staff there treat my wife, all the residents, and visitors with respect and excellent care. We are so grateful for facilities like the Garden with caring people like [name removed] and all the staff during this difficult and heartbreaking time in our lives.We are so grateful to have the person we have known for so long back in our lives. If you need similar care, please contact [name removed]. My contacting her changed our lives for the better.
Our parents have been living at the Gardens for almost three years, and they are very happy there. The care for them is exceptional, their apartment is kept clean, the food is delicious (I love it) and most of all, they track and give out the medications so there are no mistakes. We hit the jackpot when they moved in and it's been great ever since. The Gardens has lots of activities when people choose to go, and still a lot of free time. The residents congregate in the Bistro in the afternoon for snacks and coffee, and conversation. Having their own apartments is a blessing for those who would like to have their own space. This place is so great, I would live here!!
The highlight of The Gardens assisted living facility in Pharr, Texas is the cheerful and helpful nature of the people who work there. My mother has been a resident since its inauguration, sharing a beautiful, brightly-lit, one-bedroom corner apartment on the second floor with her pet cat. The Gardens is well managed, practically brand new, and an excellent place for an elderly loved one needing special assistance in their daily needs to reside. Maintenance and housekeeping are first rate. A particularly nice feature of The Gardens is the way a resident’s assistance plan is individually tailored to fit their needs. In that way, the cost of care is stepped or tiered, depending on the level of care each resident requires. Residents carry RF call buttons (her’s is on a pendant around her neck, along with her electronic room key key and mailbox key), to signal the staff that she is requiring some sort of help at that moment. Within minutes someone is there to help her with her needs. Communication with management is excellent. The nursing staff keeps up with her medication needs and assists in coordinating doctor visits. Transportation is available to doctor visits and trips to local stores. Activities are planned throughout the day. Residents are encouraged to join in, but are free to participate as they choose. I cannot imagine a better place than The Gardens for my mother to be spending this stage of her life where she needs a bit of help with her day-to-day needs. Highly recommended.
My 95 year old father has been living at The Gardens At Brook Ridge in Pharr, Texas for over three years and my family members and I have been pleased with his care. The administrative staff, specifically [name removed] and [name removed], are very kind to my father and are always friendly and professional. The rest of the staff treat my father with respect and compassion and take the time to listen to him. I highly recommend The Gardens At Brook Ridge in Pharr, Texas.
Our Mother has lived at The Gardens for a little over 2 years. It has become a wonderful home for her. She participates in many daily activities and has made great friends with fellow residents as well as staff. The staff employees have been wonderful to her. She receives the right level of care and attention everyday. She is very content at The Gardens and so are we, her children.
I have no complaints about how things are going for my mother since she has made the move into this community. The staff have been wonderful to her and I could not have picked a better group to care for her while she is there. My mom has been very active in many of the activities and staying busy throughout her day. I am very pleased with this place and would highly recommend it to anyone.
The Gardens at Brook Ridge is a great community, I highly recommend them because the place is very nice and has treated my mother very well. The meals provided are portioned well, and very nutritious. The place is always very clean and well maintained. They offer a mixture of activities, and even though my mother has not partaken in any yet, she knows they are available to her.
I only went to The Gardens to inquire information and they were just too expensive. The people at the front desk seemed friendly. The place was clean and looked very good. No one ever reached out to me, though.
There is a doctor that comes to the community on Fridays. My loved ones are now receiving more medical care than before and this is good. They also get complimentary transportation two times a week to doctor's appointments. All of the staff are friendly and follow up with them often. There are 3 healthy meals being provided to them. I also like that they provide church services, bingo, and movie nights for them. This is a wonderful place with above and beyond care.
I was very impressed with the Gardens at Brook Ridge. so much so that we moved Mom in on Tuesday!
This is a great community for good care. We are happy with the food, but we would like to see more of a home setting and not a restraunt setting. The dining area needs to be cleaned a little better after meals. More activities should be available for others. Great value and highly recommended for others and loved onces.
Since moving Mom into the Gardens I've had to increase the level of care to ensure she is getting the proper attention but things have been really good! The facility itself is beautiful and the residents seem to be very happy. I've actually recommended the place since she's moved in and Mom's best friend will be moving in next!
This assisted living place is brand new and the faculty itself is beautiful! Very modern! But because it is so brand new there isn't any beautiful gardens or landscaping or trees. Seemed very barren on the outside. It was very quiet and not too much activity going on. It was a little depressing due to the fact that you didn't see people out and about. We arrived at about 1:00pm and had hoped to see people in the dining area but there was no one there. They offer many nursing services though and may be a good place for someone who requires a lot of assistance. The apartments are beautiful and modern. But no balconies or patios. Nothing pretty to look at outside.
