    Brookdale Uptown Whittier was very nice. They had a big dining room and a little private section for if you wanted a family dinner. They had music night when I was there. They were doing renovations. They had a little library and they were adding a beauty salon. It was very clean, I just didn't care about the long hallway with the numbers on the doors -- like in a hotel. The staff was very nice and very helpful. They showed me the rooms, the sections, and the activities that were going on there. It was very impressive.

    Brookdale Whittier was very nice. The apartments were nice. They were well appointed. You could bring your own furnishings, or they could provide furnishings for you. They had nice meals. They had food available almost 24-hours, and if you didn't like what was being served on the menu, they had sandwiches and soups. It was very accommodating. They had lots of activities. I played bridge with a couple of their residents. They had trips on Sundays. They went to plays and trips to various cities and suburb. They made sure that the people went on time to the activities, and they must be really entertaining for people to want to leave bridge club to go to the activities. That was impressive to me. We ate lunch there as part of the bridge club, so I was familiar with what these women liked and what they did not like. I knew their taste, I knew that they liked good food, and I knew that they thought the food was very good. I could evaluate that from their comments.

    Everything in Brookdale Uptown was good, the food was about the same from where my mom was. They had a lot of activities. They have a very nice dining room, a good recreation room and a weights room. I would recommend this place.

    Cant judge a book by its cover. LOOKS VERY NICE but its ALL A LIE! Young pretty smiling faces of the front office is ALL A LIE! They nickel and dime residents to death literally! Have forged documents and checks belonging to residents. floor staff steals $ and personal supplies from residents while asleep or are out to meals or are too incapacitated to notice. Wrong medication used on wrong residents. No accreditation, licensing, or oversight. Med nurses are rude. Shove meds in residents mouths, with their fingers not even caring if a resident has dry mouth or chokes on meds, before slamming them on back. Med nurses also often seen in evening walking dogs while on pvt. cellphones instead of doing treatments. Food is horrible, arrives late in so called dining room and almost always cold when received or not as ordered. Too many residents walk around saying its "a place to wait to die". PLEASE do NOT place mom or dad or grandma there, UNLESS they are as big a PHONY as Brookdale Whittier is.

    These guys are great! This establishment offers so much for their residents. They are well taken care of and everything they need is available to them. They offer activities almost everyday and their location is in Uptown Whittier. I like how the activities director and staff interact with their residents, they make them feel comfortable and at home. This Emeritus also sponsors senior activities at the local Senior Center by donating cakes and other food items for seasonal events.
