    Brookdale Apache Junction did a great job in taking care of my stepdad in his final days. They were attentive and were caring as if my parents were their parents. My stepdad was on a liquid diet, and my mom did not care for the food very much.

    My husband is at Brookdale East Tucson. It is very good and has very caring staff. The rooms and apartments are very nice. Most of them have two-room suites. They sit at the same place all the time so they eat with the same people, and the food is very good. The social director is very good. I really like them. What impresses me the most is the caring staff.

    I talked to the director of Brookdale, and she was very informative. It was close to stores and the post office. It was very neat, quiet, very well decorated, and clean. However, it was not what my friends were looking for.

    I think we’re happy with Brookdale North Chandler, and my mother will be staying there as far as I know. The place is probably four stars. The elevator broke one time, and it was several hours or half a day before they fixed it. It’s just minor things like that. The other thing that is not optimal would be that when she rings for assistance, it sometimes takes a fair amount of time to get answered, although they’re supposed to only take a couple of minutes. Sometimes it takes 20 minutes or so. It is fine for now, not perfect, but OK.

    We chose Brookdale North Scottsdale because it fits my father-in-law's expectations, and we thought that it would provide the best care for him. So far, we have been very satisfied with the aides and the nursing staff. The people here are good and helpful, so he is getting better. It has all been very positive. He loves playing bingo and goes to the town meetings and music programs. My wife attends bingo with him every day. He seems to be in good health and getting along pretty well. We're fortunate with how he's doing now, and we hope he continues to be this way. They have a family day once a month, and we stayed for lunch one day. They have a standard menu and specials for the day. There's enough of a variety for him, and he loves the ice cream and the desserts. The bedrooms are large and have refrigerators and microwaves.

    Brookdale was a larger facility with a lot of patients. The rooms were really nice, clean, and well furnished. They had some people playing board games and working puzzles. The staff was very friendly and seemed competent. They had separate rooms for assisted living, and dementia care was more of a wing where they keep control on everybody. They said they keep it more like an apartment where you can come in and come out and had caregivers close by who would check on them and make sure they got their meals and everything. It all depends on how much assistance they actually needed. The residents go through an evaluation before they set up a program for them. The cost was about the same as other places; it was just a little further out, so it’s a little harder for people to visit.

    Brookdale Broadway Mesa, formerly Emeritus at Broadway, was too massive, too corporate, they're all about money, and not really about care. I didn't like those features. There was no personalization. It was too-large, and that wasn't going to work for my family member. The staff was very knowledgeable though.

    Brookdale North Scottsdale was clean. The man who interviewed us knew every single patient who lived there; I was impressed that he knew everybody. The apartments were nice. I liked that they had a lot of activities. The residents could eat any time they wanted to, which is not helpful for my mom because she forgets to eat. It would be better if there were specific times for meals, so she could be reminded that it is time for her to eat. It was more hotel-ish rather than homey, but it is a good alternative.

    We visited Brookdale North Phoenix and we immediately recognized the quality from the moment we stepped into the entrance. A very distinguished lobby with a lot of people smiling and interacting in a very peaceful atmosphere. Families and friends of residents were sitting around the community chatting and having a nice time. The place was very clean and well designed with a nice sized patio and walking paths. We were pleasantly surprised by the rooms too. Big and bright. The common areas have beautiful furniture that is designed to be comfortable. The entire community seemed secure and enriching with a homelike feeling. It is a safe reassuring and relaxing place where residents take part in everything from sing-a-longs to discussion groups or listening to music. Family members can feel comfortable visiting their loved ones. Friendly staff and I would say, very knowledgeable caregivers that are dedicated and compassionate who are trained in helping the residents and their family members to live with both the good and bad days that go hand-in-hand with memory loss.
    The caregiver team is trained to value each individual and to recognize their different preferences and needs. They know that memory loss affects every resident differently. They provide personalized care at the very best level in the area.
    The dining room is nicely arranged and looks very clean and judging by the menu, every day seems to be a good balanced meal. Many services are offered and many are very important for the health of the residents. The doctors are on call 24/7, the home health, and hospice are as well. They offer a grooming service, transportation, and have a good amount of activities including, outings, games, and movie night. I need to underline the fact that all the employees are very nice and smile all the time and the administration is always eager to help with even the smalest problem. Visit the place and you won't be disappointed, we weren't. Just make sure it fits your budget since it is rather on the high end.

    Fantastic design, wonderful administration and staff. With amble room for residents to move around and wander inside and out, resident behaviors and restlessness are decreased hugely with this type of layout. The community is bright and cheery and the activities are engaging.
    The food is always been tasty and there are just enough choices to give a little variety without too many for those with dementia.

    Although it does appear a bit Institutional as you pull up, once you walk into thru the front door you immediately feel like you are in good hands. Although the building is older, it is well kept and warm. The staff is helpful and friendly. The food is tasty and there are usually plenty of choices. The apartments aren't the largest around but not the smallest either. The staff is helpful but always seemed a little overworked or rushed. Due to the size of the building there can be a lot of walking to do, but generally not an issue for the residents. The location is great, and nestled in an area full of senior housing and doctor's offices right off the 101 and easy to get to from anywhere.

    I have always liked this community. Its not so big that its daunting, yet its just big enough to have personality. Since the Brookdale/Emeritus merger I find it even more quaint and home-like. The staff is always very friendly and helpful. I have only had the food once or twice and it was good. The activities are fun and engaging and the building itself always looks good and in good repair. A great place nestled amoungst tall trees and landscaped lawns.

    From the minute you pull into the parking lot you can tell that this is a very large community and that is the good and the bad about this long standing a facility. It can definitely be a maze to work your way through its multiple buildings. They do have a great set up of signs to guide you, thus eliminating the need for breadcrumbs, which is good as they are put to much better use in the dining area which is comfortable, relaxing and has very good food. The main building also has a "Main Street" design leading you to a Bistro area, library, and even more important, amble seating for those that call Chris Ridge home to gather and be social. The great thing about the size of this community is that it houses Assisted and Independent living, Skilled Nursing/Rehab and a secured Memory Care section. With Baptist Hospital basically next door its a great place for a Senior to call home for a long time. The staff are friendly and the community is well kept up and does not feel overly institutional with very attractive grounds filled with green grass and flowers.

    Brokdale Baywood is one of the most beautiful and well organized communities in Arizona. I was impressed with the many ways they manage to work and achieve the best results for the residents that require help with activities of daily living. The first thing you see when you enter is the beautiful, clean lobby and the smiling faces of the employees. The facility is set up very well and it is easy to find everything and to access the attractive outdoor sitting area. After going through the entrance there is a gorgeous lunchroom, library, exercise room and a small cafeteria for anyone to use. I visited several times and every time the residents were gathered in the sitting area for different activities. The decor is light and bright throughout the facility and everything smells fresh. The administrative staff are always willing to help. The caregivers are experienced and take pleasure in assisting residents. The apartment units are a pretty good size with wonderful furnishings and layouts. Lots of closet space and very well laid out bathroom. I have had lunch at the community several times and was very impressed with the menu selections and how the servers were helping the residents. The wait staff go out of their way to help residents into and out of their chairs, as well as to make sure they have their order quickly. I have had a chance to visit many assisted living facilities and have lunch at them, however, none come close to the service that the dining room staff provide at Brookdale Baywood.

    I had a chance to talk to a few family and friends of residents and every single one said that the transportation services and logistics features of the community were terrific.

    The base price that includes the amenities is what keeps me saying that this is one of the best communities around. The prices vary on the type of assistance needed by the resident. In other words, it is pay per service. So make sure you ask what the final price is going to be before you move in.

    This community is definitely my top pick.

    Visitor

    Formerly Park Regency, this campus is located with easy access off the main freeways in the Southeast valley, set back far enough to enjoy pretty landscaped grounds. With a two storied assisted living, a memory center, and skilled nursing, this warm and inviting facility provides a continuum of care.
    There is personal pride in the units as observed by flowers on some balconies, rockers that appeared to come from home, and even Texas Longhorn memorabilia. Set back behind the assisted living campus, is the memory campus. I appreciated the outdoor area that would allow residents to enjoy the nine months of great weather, yet was locked and secured to ensure safety.
    Walking the grounds, I came across a water aerobics class in process, and was cheerfully “egged on” by the instructor and participants to jump in and enjoy! Residents passing by in walkers were also teased to come join in. The grounds were very clean, although the grass is probably a day or two over needing to be mowed. I was also able to see inside the dining room – covered tablecloths, flowers in the center, nicely done. Overall observational exterior impression was that this was a warm, friendly, and inviting campus.

    I was very impressed with how this facility improved over the last few years. It looks like the new owners, Brookdale Senior Living, has concentrated their efforts on this place. The facility is pretty big and accommodates different levels of care but the one I focused on was assisted living. The entrance to the community and the grounds are better than before but is not the "best". The reception area looks nice and clean but dated, and Brookdale has not invested a lot of money there. However, in the rest of the community Brookdale has used different themes to spice the place up and it works really well. The common areas are furnished nicely and it gives you the feel that you are getting a lot for your money. The apartment units are a good size and have good, comfortable floor plans. The dining room is clean and I have to say the food is excellent. I have had lunch there many times. The kitchen staff accommodate all residents needs and wishes.The laundry service is exceptional and transportation to and from doctors appointments and shopping is offered when needed. Activities are offered and I did see them going on but did not participate. Price wise the place is acceptable, considering the services that are included. The downside of living at this community is the care. They are usually short staffed and many of the care givers don't have a lot of experience. It is hard to understand why resident issues cannot be resolved in a timely fashion by staff. I am not sure why Brookdale has not invested more in this area. the issue of staffing seems to come up over and over again. Just to be clear, although the staffing and care don't live up to my expectations it is still better under Brookdale management compared to before.

    From the moment you walk through the doors you feel like you are in a high end resort. You are welcomed by a giant fireplace in a two story great room which leads to breathtaking views that don't seem to end. There are so many patios and decks off of the common areas it is difficult to choose one. When you finally do you will be rewarded with a view that you just need to stop and enjoy for a while. Your eyes can take in the mountains, the butte and the beautiful town of Prescott. IF you look straight down from the property you are greeted with the not so beautiful apartment complex built just below but try as it may, it can't spoil the view above it. The independent living communities spacious studio, one bedroom, and two bedroom apartments all boast a fantastic patio, balcony or deck depending on the one you choose. Even those facing the other direction, who may not have the expansive valley view, enjoy a hillside filled with greenery and a variety of animals to watch including deer, squirrels, various birds and other happy creatures. On the downside, the apartments are a little dated, and the kitchens are small, but with restaurant style dining offered, most won't care. The staff is friendly, and the care seems top notch for those that need a little extra.

    Brookdale North Scottsdale (which used to be known as Freedom Inn at Scottsdale) is a great Assisted Living community which also has a top-notch Memory Care facility. Pulling up, you would think the building is a resort or nice hotel – it is amazing!

    The staff members are always so welcoming and very helpful – always ready to show off the place! The residents always seem very happy. I very rarely hear complaints from the residents and when I do, it is typically something very minor that management, in turn, resolves promptly.

    The interior is nice. Nothing like you’d expect based on what the exterior looks like – the décor is very simple – it makes it more homelike – it just doesn’t match the impression you get looking at the bilding from the outside. I remember on my very first visit – I pulled up and saw the building and the landscape and I was like, “WOW!” Then I walked inside and my immediate reaction was something like, “huh?” I know what matters most is the quality of care provided, the happiness and safety of the residents, and exceptional staff members – all of which this community excels in – it’s just that you expect so much more walking in and then you do and it’s a bit of a disappointment and I KNOW that this is materialistic and petty – but it does matter to families, I have quite a few families comment on this. Who knows, now that Brookdale has come into play – I bet that this community gets a much needed Brookdale facelift (all of Brookdale’s properties are beautifully designed and decorated!)

    I want to be clear. The staff members at Brookdale North Scottsdale are amazing. They provide the utmost quality of care, dignity, and respect to each and every resident and the residents all seem to be very happy living there and that matters more than interior decorating any day,

    Chris Ridge, which is actually now Brookdale Christown, is a senior living facility I have been visiting for years. It has seen its shares of up and downs as all senior living communities do, however, they have always had a strong management team who have ensured that they always come out on top and not let the bumps along the way drag them down. I have always admired their resilience and their determination to power through tough times.

    Chris Ridge, while not in the nicest area of Phoenix, is a secure community where the residents feel safe. I have spoke with many residents and family members over the years who have told me that they have come to realize that no matter what, the residents are the first priority and the staff members are determined to put their needs and safety first at all times, above all costs. I have personally seen this to be true in watching the interactions between members of staff and residents.

    The facility is very cozy and has a homey feel to it. There are many things for the residents to do. They have a beautiful main dining room as well as a cute café for in between meals. There is also a TV in the café so the residents can sit, sip coffee and eat snacks while enjoying their favorite shows – it has always been set on news channels when I have been there – which is something I have found most residents agree on. There are also separate dining rooms on both the 2nd and 3rd floors for residents who cannot or choose not to dine in the main dining room on the 1st floor. One of my favorite areas is the fitness center. It is well-equipped with machines, TVs, scales, etc. and it is all decorated in a Phoenix Suns theme which is so cute. They call the main lobby and hallway “Main Street,” and it is actually decorated like you are walking down a typical Main Street. The rooms off to the side are labeled like any Main Street stores and businesses. You have the Village Emporium (which is a store in which you can shop for clothing, souvenirs, trinkets, etc.), the Village Café, the Post Office (SO, SO adorable), the Library (which is one of the best stocked libraries I have seen in senior living), the Fitness Center, the Salon, a Chapel, a Cinema, and more. It is a fun and very creative set up that the residents and visitors all seem to really enjoy – I know I always do! Outdoors, there are great walking paths, sitting areas, a pool and hot tub, and more so that the residents can enjoy the fresh outdoors while remaining in a secure environment.

    The Assisted Living apartments offer 1- and 2-bedroom options, both floorplans are spacious with full kitchens, the living areas are carpeted, which I think is so much better for residents (as it is more comfortable on bare feet and less slippery than wood or tile flooring).

    The Memory Care area is very secure. The memory care residents have their own section of the facility with their own dining room, activity room, common areas, private outdoor area, etc. I love how the memory care area is decorated – the walls are lined with artwork, décor, trinkets, the residents own property, and visual aids which are meant to stimulate feelings, memories, etc. The entire memory care center is very therapeutic in its design, its choice of entertainment and activities, in the way the staff members are trained and in how they interact with and care for the residents. I am always very pleased with the memory care area.

    I could really go on and on about Chris Ridge – or I guess now… Brookdale Christown. This community have never ceased to amaze me – in both the wonderful, loving, and patient care provided to the residents and in how they make the best of every situation – they take issues, complaints, etc. head on and they deal with them until they are resolved. Issues are never swept under the rug or left for someone else to deal with – they are taken care of as they happen which I have seen lead to higher morale among management, staff members, and residents. Please take the time to tour this community – it will not disappoint.

    Located in a BEAUTIFUL area of Flagstaff AZ, Brookdale Flagstaff (which for many years was Emeritus at Flagstaff) is a lovely, cozy, and homey facility with a caring and accommodating staff. The residents really seem to love living there and the employees appear to enjoy their work. The facility is surrounded by forest landscape, nestled in between tall, tall trees offering breathtaking views. The community has changed some since Brookdale took over, but only for the better. Brookdale came in and with them they brought a variety of new services and amenities, activities, and perks offering the residents a carefree, convenient lifestyle.

    The activity calendar is always full of fun and creative entertainment and options for the residents to participate in. Volunteer opportunities are available for those residents who like to keep busy and feel needed. The opportunities can range from being a buddy for a new resident or helping prepare for special parties and events, etc. The staff members and residents seem very close. It really is a family-like atmosphere. Years ago, during one of my visits, the director at the time, a wonderful woman named Linda, wanted to do something special for one of the staff members, who was about to go on maternity leave. So Linda, other staff members, and the residents threw her a surprise baby shower. Members of the management team, staff, and many residents were in attendance and you could tell that the residents really enjoyed being a part of that. This kind of thing can mean the world to a resident whose has family members living far away.

    I always enjoy my visits to Brookdale Flagstaff – they took an already magnificent community and somehow made it even better. I would very much recommend it to families searching for senior living.

    Brookdale Tanque Verde is a lovely facility. The staff members are very nice and work well with one another. The employee morale seems to be high and if not – then they do a great job of hiding any friction or issues. The care team interacts very well with the residents and the resident’s family members/friends. They always seem to just dote on the residents, frequently walking up to a resident asking how they are doing or if they need anything. This is such a refreshing thing to see – I cannot even begin to tell you how many facilities I have been in where I have seen the staff members walk quickly throughout the facilities, keeping their pace fast and heads down, in a way that is obviously meant to avoid any residents. Here, the staff members 9 times out of 10 are the ones who approach the residents, not the other way around. In this community, there always seems to be a staff member nearby when you need one – they are great about making themselves available to answer any questions or direct people.

    Brookdale North Tucson (which used to be Emeritus at Tucson) has always been a great community to visit. No matter what changes, one thing remains the same and that is exceptional care. You can change the name, change the décor, change the menu, etc. but the staff here at Brookdale North Phoenix has maintained the same extremely high level of customer service that was in place when the community was still Emeritus.

    The facility is very cozy – with comfortable furniture and sitting areas throughout the common areas. The facility is well lit with lots of natural light flowing in. There are many activities, events, and fun things for the residents to participate in in order to keep active and busy. They do a lot of “getting to know you” type of activities which is a great way for residents to interact with one another and it’s really awesome for new residents, as it’s a great way to get to know fellow residents and make new friends.

    Brookdale North Tucson is a wonderful community that will always make you feel at home and welcome and I recommend it highly.

    Brookdale Catalina Foothills (formerly Emeritus at Catalina Foothills) is a great community in a very convenient Tucson location, close to shopping, medical offices, restaurants, and entertainment. The staff at Catalina Foothills are very exceptional in caring for the residents. They treat each resident with the utmost respect and dignified care. The care team works together with the residents and their families to design individualized treatment plans for each resident so that every resident is met with the appropriate level of care that best suits their individual needs. The staff members are excellent in encouraging the residents to be independent, active, and social. I would highly recommend Brookdale Catalina Foothills to those looking for senior living.

    Emeritus at Pantano is in a great Tucson location, that practically sits right next to the Saguaro National Park, so the views and landscape is gorgeous. The facility is very open and spacious, offering the residents and visitors ample space to socialize and enjoy the company of others. The lobby is very open and inviting. There is usually always a staff member at or near the front desk, ready to welcome any visitors. This is something I always like seeing in a community – knowing who is entering/exiting the facility at any given time goes a long way in maintaining a secure and safe environment for residents. I cannot even count how many times I have walked right into a community without being greeted only then to be able to roam the facility as I pleased. That to me is so scary – but not once have I experienced this at Pantano – I am always greeted in a friendly and welcoming manner.

    The residents seem to really enjoy living in the facility. There is always something going on to help keep their days busy and exciting. The facility always has a packed activity/event calender and they always get such a high number of resident participants – which goes to show that the residents feel comfortable in the community and actually enjoy the types of activities and entertainment options being offered. The activity staff also welcomes resident input and suggestions on the types of activities, events, outing, etc. that they would like to experience.

    I can always tell in this community that the care team and management put a lot of stock into resident feedback and suggestions. They realize that the facility is the residents’ home and that the residents should therefore have some say in how their “home” is ran. They are always asking residents for their input when it comes to dining/menu options, activities, services, programs, day-to-day happenings, etc. and they seem to take comments and concerns very seriously.

    I would absolutely recommend Emeritus at Pantano – it is a great facility with a loving and caring staff.

    A large property that gives those who call it home ample space to not feel crowded, yet the atmosphere and the staff ensure that no one will feel alone or left out. It may be an older property, but its recent remodel gives it an elegant and upscale look befitting its Paradise Valley location. The food is excellent, the staff is always friendly, and most importantly the residents are happy and well taken care of. The apartments are a little small and the driveway and parking area is always a little nerve racking with the need to make a sharp right immediately as you enter the property and then down a steep hill full of other vehicles, delivery trucks and buses, complete with a stop sign at the top of the hill to make your exit even more thrilling. However, I think the good certainly outweighs the bad. Generally home to mostly higher functioning Independent seniors, there is the ability to add services and if the need arises you can bring on their in house home care, all for extra fees of course. It is located just a little ways from the Paradise Valley Mall, the Public Library, and all of the eating and shopping in the area, and there are activities and outings going on all the time to keep the residents busy and active.
