I do recommend

We chose The Groves at Oak Ridge because I felt the most comfortable here and the location as well. Her room size is fine for her needs. We have had some issues with communication with some of the nursing staff with my moms medication refills. Overall, they truly do care about their residents and try really hard. I know my mom is healthy and safe in here and I would recommend to others looking.

Watch your loved one closesly

We chose The Groves at Oak Ridge because we had just moved here and it was the first place we found. The room sizes here are very small. I have eaten here are the food is just ok. I would not recommend this community to others. I would tell others that if you have a loved one in here, watch them closely.

Review of The Groves At Oak Ridge

Before and since I joined The Groves at Oak Ridge, I've greatly appreciated their efforts to make everyone feel comfortable and happy here. The staff seemingly makes everyone effort to support and help us adjust, and care for us like being home. The nurses and waitresses are friendly, caring, and try to tend to our every need. Custodial help is friendly and accommodating. I am happy here after 2 years, and I would make the same decision again.

Review of The Groves At Oak Ridge

The best move my wife and I could have made. Having trouble with stairs and ramps we love the all on one-floor plan, wow what a place. The concern, love, and care we are getting is godsend. My wife's dementia and falling got worse so she is now in the memory care unit and I can see her at any time I wish. The care of staff, top to bottom is great. Cmon over and see yourself.

Review of The Groves At Oak Ridge

I have lived here for four years and never regretted my decision. I toured several area facilities, but this was my pick. I liked that it was only one floor so I didn't have to use an elevator. Also from the moment I walked in for my visit I felt at home. Very comfortable and wonderful staff. I was on a waiting list for 6 months and was thrilled to finally get my apartment.

I am so impressed with how caring and pleasant everyone is here. The staff is always friendly and very compassionate in all they do. I was hesitant about moving to an assisted living and leaving my home, but now I'm so glad I made the decision to come to The Groves. It is a wonderful place to be!

Review of Brookdale Oak Ridge Oak Ridge, TN

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.

We toured this facility and fell in love with the staff. The sales manager has passion for the residents and the facility, and all the staff we met were so friendly. The residents we saw looked happy. This was the place for us, but Dad's condition worsened and he required a nursing home.

Brookdale is a good assisted living facility. It would be great if it had a full staff. It needs two nurse assts. 24/7. Our receptionist Carolyn Dotson is exceptional. Laura, our Program Coordinator is outstanding. Our dining staff does an excellent job.
