I Am/Was A Resident Of This Facility

I lived at Brook Ridge a while back. I did not like it much, but my experience was very positive. The staff was wonderful. The people were very kind and caring, but I saw a little more need for assistance with the residents there. There were quite a few people who would have benefited from caregivers. They take them to doctors, dentists, and shopping. The food was very good.

The rooms at Brook Ridge were very beautiful and very nice. The staff was very nice and friendly. They had quite a few activities, an exercise room, the music room, and the crafts room. The facility had a nice dining area, but I didn't taste the food.
