Review ofHeritage Green
5.0

Heritage Green is one of the nicest facilities I have ever been too. Not only is the environment clean, the activities are creative and engaging, the longevity of the staff and their love for the residents is amazing. The memory care unit is so lively and fun from they’re specialized snacks to their wonderful, cuddly companion Scout. She stole the hearts of the residents as well as myself when I visited. I have never been in a facility where the staff goes above and beyond to fulfill the needs and desires of the residents. I am so fortunate that my loved one is among a wonderful grou of individuals who truly love the residents.

Review ofHeritage Green
5.0

With plenty of senior living options, Heritage Green offers a family like atmosphere that is not common anymore. With the longevity of staff, low number of residents and plenty of love this place is the next best place to home. Residents are cared for, respected, and happy. The activities department is energetic and offers a variety of activities for everyone and ever level. The administration and nursing staff know their residents and families well and treat them like family. The food is incredible with plenty of options and courteous wait staff. This is also the cleanest most well maintained ALF I’ve ever seen. As a RN (not employed with this facility or company) , I would recommend this senior living community to both people looking for employment and seniors looking for a wonderful place to live alike.

Review ofDominion Village Williamsburg
5.0

It is a smaller facility so the staff really get to know their residents. They are very responsive when you call and when you have an questions or concerns they address it. The staff is somewhat available at all times, there is always someone to talk to. They are all so friendly and we have nothing bad to say. We have had a great experience and I would highly recommend to others looking.

There was an extreme lack of communication from the nurses and aides who were actually assisting my loved one. The administrative folks were very responsive. But as far as getting blood pressure readings, making sure medications were being administered, that bed linens were clean, and that my loved one had basic supplies, there was no communication from the people who were taking care of her. Which I didn't like at all. This very well could have been because of Covid. But because of Covid, I think communication should have been even better, as opposed to what I experienced. I understand that had I been able to go inside more and see for myself, my questions would have been easily answered. As it was, it was difficult to ask over the phone and then not get a call back. When we moved my loved one in and out, it was very nicely kept, and it didn't smell. I can't complain about any of that. She told me that the food was great. She was a dessert fan, so desserts evidently were really good. And they often had fresh fruit, which she enjoyed.

From the sales pitch, to the onboarding, to the continuous care, it has been consistent. We weren't sold one thing and then given something else. I feel very comfortable with the care they're providing. What I like about Brookdale vs. other places we looked at is they keep individuals with the same level of dementia together. For instance, my loved one has light dementia in the early stages, and she's with other people who are like her, not mixed in with people at all other levels.

He has his own back porch big enough for a grill and outside table. He moved in once covid started but I know they take them on trips and things like that.
