Brooklyn Adult Care Center

Review by Joy

Consumer

My mother-in-law is in Brooklyn Adult Care Center. It's very clean, and they're upgrading. The staff is wonderful and very attentive. There's bingo, singing, reading, arts and crafts, movies with popcorn, and trips. They do a lot of things. My mother-in-law is still kind of quiet but she socializes more now...

My father is in Sunrise at Sheepshead Bay. It is clean, nice, and looks comfortable. It is not too large. I think it is a good fit for him. He has only been there for a week, but everything looks fine. They have things for them to do. They seemed to be every attentive to him. Everybody seems to know him already...

We liked Sunrise at Sheepshead Bay very much, and that’s where my friend chose to go to. It was lovely, beautiful, and very clean. We liked the way the residents were very interactive and seemed to be very happy. They served us a light lunch which was very tasty, and I was very happy about that...

The Waterford on the Bay was clean and had friendly staff. The rooms were a nice size and well furnished. They had a full schedule of activities. The dining area was OK and not very lively, but the food was decent.

The borough has been a magnet for immigrants for centuries and today boasts a highly diverse mix of ethnic groups throughout its various unique neighborhoods. Brooklyn senior living offers retirees a chance to enjoy many cultures and activities as well as the excitement and entertainment of New York City.
