I visited this facility
Brookdale Chatfield was very impressive, except that the price was out of our range. It costs $2,600 for additional care provided there as well as aides to help take care of my husband. The facilities were very neat, clean, and we like the place a lot. The staff who gave us the tour was very capable, competent and answered all our questions. She recommended that we ask more questions, and that we could call her back. She's very knowledgeable in terms of the process you have to follow in order to transition from one place to another. We learned how to go about transition, she's a very knowledgeable person. The place was very clean and modern-looking. The rooms were big and the bathrooms were ideal for handicapped people, with hand towels and all, it's completely ideal for our age-group. We went to the snack area, we had a pastry which was delicious and a cup of tea. It was a very nice area where you can have snacks in-between meals and watch TV. The physical appearance of the community is just top-of-the-line.
