I Visited This Facility

Brookdale Fredericksburg was nice and clean. The staff member who assisted me was very competent and very nice. We sat down and talked about money and walked around and saw the facility. The dining area was very nice. We ate lunch there and it was good.

Brookdale Fredericksburg has an actual nurse on duty at all times in the memory care unit. My dad stayed there for six months. The place was excellent and the nurses were excellent. They just didn't fix the shower and it needed fixing. My dad was in a studio, but they also have shared rooms. They have activities and a lovely garden. The activities were excellent, but some of the activities were more than some of the residents could handle. Some of the residents enjoy them though. One time this man came in and sang all these old songs for them and the residents loved it.

My loved ones are in Brookdale Fredericksburg. I think they both seem very happy. The staff was professional and prompt, and the nursing staff was very accommodating. The food is good, and they have lots of activities.

Brookdale was a nice place with a couple of good-sized one-bedrooms and studios available. I found the studio had a lot more space than the one-bedroom. The staff came out to the house and fixed me up. I ate a very good lunch there. They had large rooms for card games, chess, checkers, and dominos. They have trips once in a while to various places in the area, like the mall and a couple of stores at the shopping center.

Gma has been here since July. After days and days of observation and months of issues, I am regretting family's decison to put her here. Family members have to deal with issues daily that are never taken care of. No one seems to know the answer and refers you to another employee or the director tells you she'll take care of it, but doesn't. Laundry and showers are to be done on set days. Gma's laundry piled up no one was doing it, no one was on the same page, everyone gave different days it was to be done. Same thing for the shower situation. Gma in dirty clothes from the day before several times now. Her support stockings are to be put on by aides/nurses, but many times never on or when put on, left same pair on for days. Gma has fallen twice since July, which led to hospital stays. Some employees are kind and loving, others poor morale and no patience. I sit and observe watching the staff the entire time I'm there. They put out a monthly activity calender, but quite often the activities don't take place. Dinner menus are put out, but when they go to order, the items are not always as posted, thus creating more chaos and confusion. I could go on and on. Don't let their kindness fool you on your initial visit, other than a spacious room that is clean, there are far too many problems. I wonder what the folks who don't have famiy checking in on them and their care go through. I would only recommend this facility to those who are completely mobile and have no signs of dementia. It'd be fine for an apartment complex for seniors.
