    We are at Brookdale Gayton Terrace. The staff tries to be very accommodating, but they're short-staffed. I'm not happy with the food either. I think it is overloaded with fats and carbohydrates. I think whoever makes up the menu should be fired. The activities are very good though. They have exercises, games, and movies. They have people come in and they have a party every Friday afternoon. They have other activities that are interesting. My husband is always napping so we don't participate in a lot of those things. Frankly, I wish they offered more activities in the evening.
