I Visited This Community

We didn't really like Brookdale Hawthorn Lakes because it felt too institutional and like ahotel since it was a high-rise. They didn't seem to have many activities or amenities. The rooms where they hold their activities seemed small and all in one place. We were watching some of the staff interact with people, and they didn't seem to be very attentive. What I liked about them is they said that they would have a nurse come up to the house to figure out the care plan that would fit my parents. They were not a continuing care facility and only had assisted living and independent living, so down the road, we would still have to find a skilled nursing place for them.
