    My mother was a resident here and our family was very pleased with her care. It was obvious that the staff loves the residents and do everything they can to help them be happy and to feel special. I would highly recommend this community.

  • Review of Brookdale Oak Ridge Oak Ridge, TN

    Eccentricities of my loved one contributed to the situation. However, my person often received minimal care. Meals were brought to the room (extra charge) but dirt dishes were often not picked up until the next day. I reported a "gnat" problem in the bathroom sink but no action was ever taken and so I did it myself. My loved one was on the morning "list" for housekeeping. No accommodations of timing was made for my loved one's sleeping late so often. Cleaning of her room was skipped that week. I personally cleaned the room from time to time. The RA's and staff were friendly for the most part and loved one interacted with them. Because a medical condition required more care, loved one moved to memory care unit. Conflicting information was given regarding the requirements for staying there, and I felt no attempts were made to help improve the situation for loved one. I am aware of others who feel their care is very good at this facility, but I feel it was only adequate for our family member. The nurse practitioner for "in house" medical services was difficult to communicate with about loved one's conditions. In retrospect, a primary care physician outside the facility would have served our family better.
