I Visited This Facility
Brookdale Lafayette's rooms were very small and set up with a very tiny living room that runs into the living room and bathroom, so it wasn't a comfortable setting for two people. The place wasn't appropriate for my and wife's activity level because most of the people were less mobile than my wife and I would like. The girl named Rachel was extremely helpful and a lovely person to work with, so people who have her are lucky. The staff was excellent. We were treated extraordinarily well. A lot of the activities they had were very sedentary, like puzzles and reading. It wasn't a very active community, which was the biggest negative. Instead of having individual areas for activities, they had a widening in the hallway, and people's rooms opened onto where the activity area was. They had a very small chapel area and a library area that was set up basically the same way.

Brookdale Lafayette is a one of a kind facility. There are many features that help to make this facility unique. Brookdale Lafayette has a very nice location, but isn’t too close to many places (referring to walking distance.) But the facility is minutes away from some establishments, making Brookdale Lafayette have a very good location. This facility also takes residents to local establishments of their choice (eateries, banks, etc.) on average about three times a week which is a nice feature. The facility has courtyard and very nice outdoor areas. There’s plenty of outdoor seating and rocking chairs for residents to sit back and relax in. The outdoor areas have very nice layouts and are very well maintained. This facility has wonderful landscaping. The facility is clean and staff is moderately attentive. The facility also has plenty of in house activities that are hosted regularly. This facility regularly hosts bingos, ice cream socials and other interesting events on a regular basis. This facility has plenty of dining options. The meals are served restaurant style, so residents can pick from a menu to choose their food. There are always plenty of options available as well as an always available side menu. Residents also have the comfort of being able to go to the dining hall and have a chef personally cook for them anytime. Brookdale Lafayette is very good in the food department, with a wide selection of meals and options. Brookdale Lafayette is a nice facility overall. There is room for improvement, but Brookdale Lafayette isn’t a bad place. In the future, I hope the interior of the facility is updated and that improvements are made to management. Overall, Brookdale Lafayette is a great facility with great dining options and plenty of recreational areas. There’s even a gazebo outside where ice cream socials are often hosted. Residents have plenty of outdoor seating areas to enjoy and will surely enjoy dining at Brookdale Lafayette. This facility has many amazing features including its expansive courtyard, variety in dining and recreational areas. Brookdale Lafayette is truly a one of a kind facility that I recommend visiting.

Brookdale Lafayette is a nice clean up to date community. A few of the staff members were not very attentive to visitors or residents, but that may be because many of the residents are still quite independent. The facility was clean, but looked a little dim. The activity calender and menu are well planned. The quality of care for the residents seems above average which is impressive.
