Review ofBrookdale Liverpool
5.0

From the moment I first walked into Brookdale, they put me at ease. I spoke to the head of sales, [name removed], and the administrator, [name removed]. They both really wanted to be sure I was happy and that I was comfortable that my father would be well taken care of. They couldn't have done more. Maintenance is so helpful. If you need something done, they might not be able to get to it right then, but they'll definitely come back to you. The staff are outstanding. The food looks good, is well presented, and is tailored to their clientele. I don't have anything negative to say. It's one of the best facilities I've ever been in.

Review ofNorth Brook Heights Home for Adults
5.0

The moment I moved in I fell in love with the staff here. They have been helpful from the start. I pulled up with my son and his truck full of my stuff. A couple of nice gentlemen helped my family unload the truck and bring my stuff to my new room. This nice young lady gave me a tour of the facility. The nurses met with me on that first day just to introduce themselves and answer any of my questions. The kitchen staff is always so sweet and the food is good. A nice girl comes and helps me clean and do laundry. They have helped me with my cell phone and my insurance. I really appreciate them.

Review ofNorth Brook Heights Home for Adults

I was reluctant to move to assisted living. I have always lived on my own. My family and doctor we're very persistent that I needed the extra help. I have to say, as much as I hate to admit it, they were right. The staff here have been so sweet and helpful. It's like have 5 grandchildren around at any given time. I have a bad knee that I have always struggled through. With all the help I have to strain so much less and my knee feels better than it has in years. Don't be stubborn like I was, accept the help and you'll see a big change in your life.

We had experience with Brookdale when our father moved in about 10 years ago, and our first impression this time around was we noticed some of the same staff members were still there which we appreciated. We think that makes for a good and pleasant atmosphere. Also the apartment are lovely, our loved ones came unfurnished so we were able to bring all of her furniture with.

The sales team was excellent and the director is great at sending updates via email. The only negative was that I think that the nursing staff could have followed up better with the family members, they were hard to get a hold of and did not have a sense of urgency and did not keep families up to speed as well as we would have liked.

We've been very happy with our choice. I feel they've kept us well informed with any restrictions going on with the pandemic. And that's been a big relief. Making the move was a much easier adjustment than we were expecting, for Dad as well as for our family. All the limited care provided in independent living has been good - cleaning, meals etc. My dad tells me everyone on staff is very friendly and kind. He's happy there. He seems to enjoy the food. He likes going on walks, attending music activities, and watching football games with other residents. He's meeting people his age and making friends. They have exercise classes, and transportation to church and appointments and things. We're very happy with them and how Dad has adjusted. He's very comfortable there, and it has gone as well as we could have ever hoped. I have no worries about him. I fell like we're getting a good value, and it's nice to know that additional assisted living services are there if he ever needs them.

This is a really great location for someone with more significant physical limitations. They had a lot more options/tools available for those with higher care needs. They were really great here, and easily as nice as where we ended up. Everyone was equally as nice to work with with and talk with. The facility itself was really cool. It was much fancier, and Manlius is definitely a fancier area. It was a grand, two story entrance, and looked really, really nice. We really loved it. We have friends with parents there, and they say the same thing. It just ended up not being the right fit for my mom, who didn't have those higher care needs.
