I Am A Friend Or Relative Of A Current/Past Resident

My wife moved into Brookdale Avondale about two weeks ago. It's good. Her room is large and clean. From what I have seen, the staff is doing their job. I know they have a bus and do activities, but I don't know if my wife has participated in any.
