    Brighton Gardens of Raleigh's staff is extremely good to the residents. They've make a real effort to know them and address them by name. They also seem to genuinely care. The place didn't have an institutional feel, but felt more like a motel or hotel, and it's very clean. My aunt likes the food and hasn't complained once about it. The price is a bit expensive. They have bingo, paint pictures, religious services, rosary for the Catholics and Bible study, knitting and crocheting group, and a bridge club. They also have a social where they get a glass of wine if they wanted. My aunt moved in on the first of September. They do housekeeping, laundry, nurses on-call at the facility, and administer medicine upon doctor's orders. The people there really went out of their way to be warm and inviting.

    Brighton Gardens is much bigger and has more patients. It seems that they are very accommodating. They are willing to bend over backwards to help my dad. They told me it wasn’t a problem to take him to breakfast, lunch, and dinner, then take him back to his room every single day. They seem much more equipped to help people in need of extra care. They even said he didn't need to be in the memory care. For an assisted care unit, they have great nursing aid service. They take their people out on excursions regularly, like to restaurants. They have people who would push them in wheelchairs and I thought they were very good about that. The food apparently is really good, so that's a plus. This place was owned by Marriott and was sold years ago to a good company. Some of the employees maintained their jobs when the new company took over. The memory care unit is small and seems more like a confined area. There is a prison feel to it versus the freedom of the assisted care unit. It was a hard decision for my dad. My family preferred him to be in the memory care area, but they said he should be in assisted living. It isn't spectacular, but it is very good. I think the price is a little too high for us, but I'll give it a 4 in terms for their services.

    Our family member has been at Brighton Gardens memory care for many months. The staff is generally pleasant and residents are clean and free of odors, hence the 2 stars. However, there have been many serious medication administration and management failures that have now imperiled our family member long term and Brighton Gardens has proven to be more interested in covering their tracks than in owning up to their responsibilities and correcting the systemic communication problems in the building. At over $8,000/month I certainly do not recommend this place.

    My mom, especially, loves the outings. In this environment (Memory Care), she is always made aware of the outings, and totally enjoys them. There is a lot of variety and opportunity for her to experience many things, from scenic drives, to shopping, crafts, restaurants, etc. She has enjoyed the food, and really feels at home in her room. She seems to be complimentary of the staff, and has more good days than bad. The Memory Care environment has been perfect for her needs!
