We are very disappointed with Brookdale Lynnwood. I moved my father-in-law here from a much nicer Brookdale community. He has a very small room and basically no choices for the meals. The cooking is done in a separate cottage and then brought to them in carts, so sometimes the food is cold when it gets to them. They don't salt the food. They don't have locks on the doors, so there's no privacy. He calls the food "P.O.W. food." I have to give credit to the people because I think they are taking pretty good care of him. He likes the exercise classes.
The Meridian at Stone Creek had large facilities and large cottages, so we liked that. We didn't like the fact that they didn't have air conditioning in the rooms. The restaurant seemed nice. We didn't like the area because it's kind of isolated out in the woods, which is actually very nice, but you have to drive quite a distance to get to any store. They had very nice cottages with a few different floor plans. It seemed like they had a good program of activities like sewing and exercises. It is a little costly.
