this is definitely a great place to put your loved one. For the expense you get exactly what you need and the rooms are very nice. The staff make the residents very comfortable and make sure that they are interacting with others. It is a really good place for my loved one.
We have had a great experience with Waterside Landing. My only criticism is they do not have a lot of residents, but they try very hard to get people involved in everything. They have a lot of activities, the food was good, and most of the staff members were great and have bent over backwards for us. I highly recommend them to others who are looking.
I enjoyed the space and layout of living spaces. I found some (most) of the workers (aids) particularly nice and pleasant. I do not enjoy being locked in even for my "own safety." I despise being told things are done for my security. Let me worry about my security.
A "new" facility re opened after the hurricane. The units are quite nice and the facility is very nice. The grounds are still pretty rough from the storm and the building is still being renovated. Overall a quality place. I an considering relocating my mother here.
Staff excellent , attentive, welcoming. Facility clean, well maintained, residents seem happy.
They did NOT have an ant problem, they had MASSIVE BED BUG problem and now they are reopening under a different name. They first said that they had damage from Hurricane Irma and that was a down right lie! Then they tell everyone they have 60 days to vacate, sending 200 plus residents all over. So can anyone for sure say that they gutted the place as I live close and I know city employees. I have not heard anything regarding this and there was not much going on. DO NOT bring your family there any waste your money and allow them to get bit up by BED BUGS!!! By the way the administrator [name removed] is garbage as well.
Brookdale Margate as of Jan. 5th is closing down and giving its residents 60 days to move out. they have a huge ant infestation which is causing a lot of residents to be turned down moving into new places or being told they cannot bring their furniture.
We are still adjusting with my fathers move to this community. He is doing well, but there is some things they promised, and they did not follow through with. I was told they were able to provide a higher level of care, but we had to hire an extra aid to help my father with some extra things. This is a nice community, they do a good job with the cleanliness around the community. He is pleased with the meals. I would suggest that you do a lot of research on the type of community you want for your love one. It is still a work in progress for us in this community, but I would recommend it.
We were not impressed at all with this community.apartments we were shown were extremely dirty and some smelled really bad.we were not at all interested in this facility.
We all know that it is inevitable that we might have to move our loved ones into a an assisted living or nursing home facility one day, but that does not make it easier. After seeing dozens of places that quite frankly made us consider continuing to care for my mom ourselves (even though we know we couldn't provide her with the appropriate level of care), we settled on a place that was too expensive, did not offer the amenities she needed and that we were not excited to go visit, let alone put her there. Then we received a suggestion to check out Brookdale Margate at the last minute and EVERYTHING changed. Hemo, the sales director was awesome and was a real pleasure to work with. Virginia, the administrator was very organized and helpful. [Removed], the director, was a genuinely good person who loves his job and who really cares about making his place the best. Even the housekeeping employees and the maintenance men were so professional and willing to do whatever was needed to make her life better. The place was incredible, it was clean, the unit was so nice that I would live there and the services were EXACTLY what my mom needed. The rent was no more than if we rented her a similar apartment somewhere else without 24 medical supervision, skilled nurses, daily transportation, tons of activities and 3 incredible meals per day along with hundreds of amenities. For a reasonable additional fee they allowed us to pick and choose what mom needed (medication management, bathing assistance, oxygen storage, cable and internet, etc) and to exclude what she did not need right now. For the first time in several years, my mom was able to truly live and feel independent. Mom has a pendant around her neck in case she needs assistance and has nurses who manage her medication around the clock and check up on her. The base rent also includes housekeeping, laundry, linens and a bus to the bank, grocery store or doctors appointments and much more. She loves the apartment and after losing almost 100 pounds in a year, the food was so good that she ate more than she has at a single seating in a long time (and trust me when I tell you that mom is a very picky eater). She was able to bring her own furniture and make it her own, has 2 TVs with Comcast and Internet, a full kitchen with brand new appliances, a screened in patio with artificial grass, a separate bedroom with a huge walk-in closet, a very patient friendly bathroom and she even was able to bring her companion, a 5 pound Yorkie. Prior to the move, during the move and after the move everyone there has been so helpful and accommodating. They welcome all of the family including my 5 year old son to come hang out, go swimming, and no different than if she had her own apartment, she can invite her family and friends to stay there as long as they want and even overnight (up to 7 days at a time). My wife, my son and the entire family enjoys visiting and we love the people (all of the staff and the other residents) and the place. I truly believe that Brookdale Margate will add several years to my mother's life expectancy by giving her the ability to have a life again and that makes us all happy. Needless to say, I would highly recommend them to everyone who wants to help an aging loved one to live an independent life in their retirement.
Mom is still adjusting to her new surroundings but so far she seems to be doing well. She is pretty independent and doesn't require a lot of help doing things. The staff seems to be friendly. She does not like the food at all but that is just her personality I"m sure there is nothing wrong with it. The staff keeps open and constant communication with me they provide me with feedback when asked. Overall I would recommend them to anyone.
I was not impressed with my tour of this community. I would not had felt comfortable placing my mother in this community for her needs.
My mother and my daughter toured Brookdale together and they did not like it. The tour guide, I do not remember his name, was very pushy., Also, the facility had a bad smell, and it was not what my mother was looking for.
Corporate needs to wake up and visit this property !!!!!!!!! Its beautiful outside but the inside is lacking ! This place could be a four or five star healthcare facility but due to poor maintenance & housekeeping 3 stars would be all its worth. The place is dirty and every time I go there i see the same dirt that they never cleaned. The people working there are lazy and uncaring, they yes you to [Removed] but do nothing you ask. When medicine is ordered they dont go out of their way to see that the medicine is delivered and dispensed. They are suppose to pick up the wash but forget and asked why it wasn't picked up their answer is to blame the resident. The place does smell like old people its that they dont have any fresh air circulating into the building. Trying to get thru to the staff is like trying to get to talk to the president I call to speak with a manager but they can never be able to reach one and when you leave a name and number they never call back and forget about trying to get thru to the accounting dept its a one person show and she will never call you back unless you tell them your calling corporate and are going to make a complaint. If you can find a better place I would tell you to take your love one there because unless corporate steps in this place is going down and going down fast . I'm in the process of looking for a better place !
Brookdale is a really nice place. It's located by a beautiful man-made lake surrounded by large pine trees. The room is lovely and it's a very affordable price.One thing that could improve is the morale of the staff. They seem to be rather detached.
My mother has made a smooth transition into this community and has really liked participating in many of the activities as well as the dinning experience. The only complaint we have had this far is that there should be faster response times with the staff. We have been waiting three weeks for her dishwasher to be fixed. We have also asked multiple times that her trash be taken out and it has yet to be done.
Everything there seems to fit my mother's needs. The staff is attentive and friendly. She loves her apartment and I am so happy that she will be safe with so many helpful workers nearby. She has been enjoying the meals and appreciates the option of cooking if she does not want to join the community for a meal. She especially feels pampered with the laundry and housekeeping services. Thank you
This community was very outdated and dull. The residents also did not fit the residents that would be able to communicate with mom. The majority were a lot more disabled. However, the person was nice that showed us around and very helpful.
My sister is doing well overall here at this community, but there are some improvements that could be made. I would say the studio apartment they show you, and the one you move into are not the same. My sisters apartment is a bit small, and has a stove that does not work. I have suggested that they remove the stove to make it a more usable area. Also when they spray for bugs, they should do the surrounding areas not just one room. This is an older building, so there is some updating that needs to be done.
