Review ofBrookdale Emerson
5.0

Our family had an in person tour and we were very impressed with Brookdale. The sales lady [name removed] was very on top of it, never pushy and just very informative. It came down between Brookdale and another community and we just happened to choose the other community because it had a little bit ore to offer our father.

I was in a real pinch to find the right care giver and "home manager" for my parents. Mom suffers from dementia and suddenly Dad, her main caregiver, had a stroke. Almost overnight, we needed immediate support for their daily routines so Mom and Dad could continue to live at home. What to do? Enter [name removed] and Grandma Joan. Within three weeks [name removed] presented four qualified candidates. One is now a new member of the family. [Name removed] provided kind, professional and immediate support from start to finish. In every interaction he showed genuine warmth and compassion while meeting or exceeding every expectation he set. He expertly managed the process of identifying, vetting and guiding us on interviewing candidates as well as providing all the background documentation, guidelines and introductions to support services we needed to make an offer, set up payroll services and more. If I had a question, [name removed] had an answer! We couldn't be happier, and I am delighted to offer this recommendation.
