  • Poor Communication

    My elderly parent is at Brookside and the communications are TERRIBLE! I have easily requested emails SIX TIMES on events so I could attend public holiday celebrations and never an email or call. Unbelieveable! The phone isn’t always answered, no recording machine! Finally in the current virus situation updates would be helpful, what are they doing to ensure the health of the residences??? Keep the families INFORMED! For the price I would not recommend Brookside, the communication is not happening- very unprofessional. A fee of 10k monthly for the one bedroom, 10k a month for the 24/7 aid.

  • I met with [name removed], a wealth of information regarding senior living option. Their facility is designed independent living , and living assistance. The luxurious facility was great. This would be a strong consideration for my wife and I, assuming our needs in future remain the same.

  • This is a difficult thing to rate. My circumstances may not be yours. First off this place is pretty expensive and because of that I assumed it would have "better care". I moved my mom who is 94 from another facility that was good for younger people but my mom did not like it. For her food was extremely important and she is fussy. I chose the Residence because the food was supposed to be great, the people who were there have been there a long time indicating to me that they liked their jobs and were happy there, It is not to far away for me to come often. Well since she has been there the director has left and most important to me the person in charge of care has left. She was the deciding factor for me to bring her there. I'm not too impressed the way things are at the present. It's not a bad place but I was hoping for a little more for the money. Everyone's circumstance is different so I can not recommend it to anyone. It is one of the most difficult decisions to make and you can only hope for the best. Good luck.
