The staff in Brookdale Durham is very friendly and the place is very clean. I like the little apartments that they had, which were nice and spacious. They also have people that come in and do PT for the residents. On every floor there's a back wall area where they can rehydrate themselves, they have a library, and a nice dining room with a wonderful menu. It's a good place and I don't think there's anything they can improve on.

Brookdale Durham offers skilled nursing and a lockdown memory care center for dementia patients. It was nice but definitely had more of an institutional feel to it. It was very pretty and had a lovely brick courtyard that the residents could garden in. The apartments were very small and almost reminded me of being in a dorm. The dining area was at the bottom level and made you feel like you're in the basement. The director who was showing me around was very lovely and nice and you could tell that she's very involved with the residents. The place was out of our price range.
