Review ofBrookdale Hoffman Estates
5.0

This place has a lot to offer. It's not cheap, but it's not overly expensive. I feel like they gave me a good price. The main reason that I chose them over other independent living communities is they have assisted living here as well. So if my health declines, that assistance is here for me. I'm very happy here. The food is excellent. They have 4-5 doctors, and there's a doctor here every day of the week. They have a therapist. They have pretty much everything the residents could need on the whole. The only thing they can't provide is 24-hr nursing. I think the people here are very friendly. I have a very nice 1-bedroom apartment, and I get two meals a day. Another thing that sold me on Brookdale is they have 640 facilities throughout the U.S. My daughter lives out of state, and 6 blocks from her apartment there's another Brookdale. So if I get to a point where I want to be close to family, I could transfer there, and my one-time community move-in fee that I paid to Hoffman Estates transfers with me. The only negative - and this would be at any senior living community, not just Brookdale - is the transition into senior living can be lonely until you start meeting people and get adjusted. It's just a different stage in life, and I urge people to make sure they're ready for it and have the mindset to embrace it. But I've started making friends, and it's starting to feel like home. It just takes time.

When our mother became very ill, we all agreed she needed nursing care and we didn’t have time to look at options. Mom has always been very social with energy to spare. 3 years later, Mom was still in nursing care but had made a recovery that told us she needed to have her life back. We found Asbury court and, though it’s only been a short time, she is her old self. At 94 she is newly alive! our salesman, our 1st contact answered all our questions and allayed our fear that independence for Mom might only be a wish. Everyone we have come in contact with has been so kind and compassionate. Each new experience for Mom has come with encouragement and understanding from whatever staff member has been involved. She looks forward to all the activities that are offered and the independence she loves so well, knowing that if she needs help with anything it’s there. We are all breathing a big sigh of relief and so happy to see Mom smiling again.

I've had a limited amount of experience with this type of thing, but we did have our loved one at another place, and we like Brookdale better. Brookdale costs a little less, which we appreciate, and they're also friendlier. They're very nice here.

Lincolnwood Place was the first place I looked at and it was clean and there was no odor when I walked in. They had various rooms for activities and a spacious lobby with lots of seating. The apartments are also a very nice size. His only complaint has been the food. He said there is not much flavor and the portion sizes are small so they could use some improvement in that area. Overall, I would recommend to others looking.

Location is still very good (more like a 15 minute drive) but amenities are really strong - the coffee shop in particular is a really nice feature and something that my mother would love. The dining options, activities, and overall facilities condition are all great. Also, I think that, because of the size of the studios, these might actually be an option for my mom and also might be easier to navigate without the additional walls/doors. I did read a few comments that the care was inconsistent and that a few people had felt the need to bring in outside help in addition to the onsite care. Do you have any thoughts on how I should interpret that feedback?
