    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.
