I Visited This Community
The location is the best part of this facility. It is located about one mile from HEB, Wells Fargo bank, and many shopping centers and salons. The property is clean, beautifully landscaped, and quiet. The facility is clean inside with a wide open floor plan and a functional layout. Inside, it is very quiet and peaceful. The dining room is fair in design, but the food is good. I did not like the pork steak, but the sides were good and flavorful. I didn't see much variety in the menu, but the residents do have the opportunity to choose from at least three entrees. The staff members do and awesome job in making sure that all of the residents in the dining area are served and eat some of their meal. They walk around and ask if everyone is doing well. They are attentive and caring. Activities here seemed to be a bit lacking. There are game days, but not enough variety. I noticed that most residents here preferred to stay in the room or socialize in the sitting areas. A handful of residents were outside on the patio. It seemed that there may need to be a few more activities to spark the interest of some of the residents. Amenities are great here. There are rooms to exercise, spaces to read, and nice rooms inside where the residents live. Very friendly residents, although most were reserved in conversation. There is not a lot of liveliness here, but there were a few of the residents who appear upbeat. This Brookdale Medical Center Whitby suits best seniors who do not like a lot of interruptions and prefer to stay in their rooms and read a book rather than participate in a lot of activities. This is a good facility for seniors needing assistance with living tasks because the staff here are very attentive. I may have chosen this facility for my father who does not like to participate in many outdoor activities. Still, I would have preferred him to participate more and have activities that he could enjoy such as picnics, barbecues, and volunteer options.
