Review ofBrighton Gardens of Raleigh
4.6

They have two parts, assisted living and memory care, which are totally different units. My mother is in the memory care unit, and I would highly recommend the facility, especially compared to another place we've experienced. They keep a pretty stable staff, and that's very important. If the staff is always brand new, that's an indication of issues. But they're pretty constant, which I appreciate. And they've been very good for our family.

Review ofMagnolia Glen
5.0

I can not say enough amazing things about Magnolia Glen. The staff are so caring and encourage their associates to grow within the company. The residents are the absolute sweetest and the facility is always kept in tip-top shape as far as cleanliness. I have worked at Magnolia Glen for almost 6 years now and don't plan on leaving any time soon. The bonds we form with not only the residents, but with their loved ones are, in my opinion, the best part of the job.

Review ofMagnolia Glen
5.0

We toured many retirement homes for my father and decided to go with Magnolia Glen due to the peaceful and serene feel of the property as soon as you drive into the community. We did not make an appointment but that staff quickly stopped what they were doing to take time to show us around. All the staff have since been extremely friendly and helpful. My Dad is very happy where he is at Magnolia Glen and enjoys everything the community has to offer.

We chose Brookdale Durham because of the friendliness of the staff and how clean the facility was. It really feels like home, it is pricey but I think it is worth it because of how comfortable they make you feel. The location has been great for our family. I think they could improve on the amount of activities and type of activities provided. They only have 1 outing a week and it is to the grocery store. The activity room is just bingo so my loved one is kind of bored with that. I think they could definitely benefit from more stimulating things to do. I would definitely recommend them to other families who are looking.

They have gotten through this entire pandemic without any positive cases which is astounding, they are very careful.

We've really appreciated how welcoming they've been. They've been wonderful and kind in helping our mom navigate her situation, where she's still at home but her husband is in memory care here. One thing that has been less than ideal is the staff level. Sometimes even if there were just one more person, situations could have been better dealt with. But Dad loves the food. It's a good variety and high quality. They have a lot of wonderful activities, the bulk of which seem to occur in the morning or early afternoon. Sometimes in the late afternoon, I've noticed that the activity that is scheduled is not necessarily the activity that's going on, but maybe that's a part of dementia care, working with the people and the situation you have in front of you. And on the other hand, I'm glad they're not rigid. For instance, if we come to take Dad out on a walk, they never say "No, you can't do that. We're in the middle of something." Which has been nice.
