Brookdale Fort Wayne
4.6

Overall we are having a better experience at Brookdale then the previous community our loved ones were at. We appreciate everything that is here, our loved ones care needs are being met and we are happy. The meals are going pretty well so far, and when we do come to visit we see activities being offered. We also think the value for cost is fair.
