I Visited This Facility

I toured Brookdale for my mom. I liked it and would want to move there myself. It was more expensive, but it offered other amenities, including a very nice pool. It was bright. They had a machine to help them with reading, guest speakers, different religious activities scheduled throughout the day, and a bus that would take them around. I really liked the amenities. They had doctors who come in; one happened to be my doctor.

While the smallest of the units in this building is certainly on the small side of the spectrum, if residents can afford one of the many larger units—the apartments can be decorated to feel like home. Some units even have a balcony. As with all Brookdale communities, this facility has the Connected Living program—which offers each resident notebooks—and the ability to network, engage, and manage their daily schedules electronically. As far as the quality of care, general assistance with ADLs,med reminders, and personalized care plans are available for each resident. Seniors can cook in their apartment, or enjoy restaurant quality meals in the dining room. On site amenities are outstanding, and quite versatile. They even have a heated swimming pool!
