    We moved to Brookdale Rockford. The place and staff are very nice. We found out that we could get adjoining studio apartments, which was very attractive to us. It was suited to our lifestyle and close to a mall and other activities around the area.

    I would love to have my mom at Westmont, but it’s way overpriced. They have everything anybody could possibly want. It’s like being in a ski resort. They’re very attentive, have a lot of exercises, top-notch food, and beautiful with stone pillars everywhere. The staff was very caring.

    The one I like the very best that I felt was the nicest is Westmont of Morgan Hill. It’s very beautiful, new, and looks like a 5-star resort. We like the decorating and the open feeling of it. It has a very classy feel...
