Our Experience

The cleaning staff is lacking. My loved one's room is not routinely cleaned, they have a lot of staffing issues. I think the main issue is that there is not enough staff that actually care about their job. They keep charging for services they aren't providing and are non responsive when we ask for a refund. At this point we have been charged about 3000 more than we should have been. The food is getting better but there were some VERY skimpy meals. The staff are not responsive when the call button is pushed. My loved one waited two hours for help. They only offer shower assistance twice a week and they have missed the day multiple times. They are going through a company change so it may get better, but at this point I would not suggest and if significant changes don't occur we will be looking for other options.

WE LOVE HER, SHE’S AMAZING

My family has been here a long time when it was Brookdale, now Opal. This place is just barely getting by - it’s dirty, see staff on phones all the time, ignoring residents, most staff are here for a paycheck, alarms go off a lot and no leadership here. It’s a hot mess!. Beginning Dec 2023 the cleanliness of the building has changed. It smells better and our love one’s room is now extra clean. My family met new house keeper who actually cleans this place. She’s AMAZING, polite, professional, sweet and the best part very patient/kind to our mother and other residents here. You can see she truly cares for these residents and wants a clean living environment for them to live in. She goes out of her way each day to make sure these residents are happy. We visit a lot, see clearly the bond these residents and [name removed] share, mutual love and respect for each other. These residents adore her and vice versa. My family LOVES LOVES LOVES [name removed]. OPAL needs a lot more [name removed].

Under new management

Brookdale has a new manager - this seems to be a big improvement. Brookdale Hermitage is also to start new ownership in 2024. Unfortunately my experience with Brookdale is while they were in trouble. The cook left abruptly - one night the management finally ordered pizzas because there was no one to cook dinner. Housekeeping and nursing staff were pulled to cook. Staff was going through great turnover and often short staffed. Staff suddenly taking vacation and not returning. No one to transport or drive bus for doctor appointments. This was at the same time that my mother's health was declining. Also great inconsistencies in medication administration, mother not kept clean, room often smelled of urine, mother developed a bed sore. I brought in Hospice who informed me they had no nursing assistants. A couple of Brookdale nurses and one nursing assistant were able to help me when they were on duty . They are under new management and I believe they are getting their act together.

I love it here! Couldn't ask for anything more.

I love to sit and look in the garden and watch the dogs plat and people sitting. I love the exercise class! It starts my day! I love it, it's clean and friendly. The caregivers are so sweet, no trouble with anyone. I don't need to ask for anything. They have it before I even ask

There's a warmth here that you won't find anywhere else and I've been to all of them. It's the upbeat, warm and gentle staff that makes the residents want to be warm and gentle. There's a great staff here, and I can't imagine being anywhere else.

Would definitely recommend. Overall care is great. Need more staff, but overall I'm happy here!

I love Brookdale. We are hiring a a housekeeper, which is badly needed. Now the public areas are cleaned by a single person, and it looks good. Even with the lack of housekeeping staff, our apartments are ok due to the cleaning before I came. I am confident that we are on par with any other facilities. The food is good for the most part. The breakfast is awesome, and the soups are beyond good. We have a balanced meal every day. Our chef works miracles with seasonings. There is a wide range of activities daily. The care staff are wonderful. They deal with some grumpy old folks who just have a defeatist attitude and like to push the help button purely for attention or need the tv adjusted. Our care staff understands us and do a loving job of meeting and surpassing our needs. They are warm yet professional, and I have yet to see a single person who I would replace. Our nursing staff are gentle and professional answering questions or fielding concerns. Before moving here I evaluated the costs of assisted living facilities in town. Brookdale ls pretty comparable. I would love to have a dishwasher and in-room washing capabilities, but after almost three months of being cared for by this staff, I am very pleased that we chose Brookdale. I appreciate the assistance A Place for Mom gave me while I was struggling with this very complicated life situation. After all of my research and after living here, I totally feel it's the best place for me, and I would definitely recommend Brookdale. The warmth of our assistance staff is awesome. Other than the issue with no housekeeping, I am totally happy here.
