We went to Brookdale Jensen Beach. The experience was really good. We had a really good lunch, and it was a very nice tour. The place is beautiful and renovated, and the location is amazing because its right on a hill across the river. I was very glad to be able to get the tour, but we were looking for independent living. The rooms were beautiful. We looked at the two-bedroom and one-bedroom that were adequate in size. They have a lot of activities within the building, like crafts, exercising, swimming, cards, as well as trips to stores and music. The staff was awesome, even when we were eating, and were very gracious in the cafeteria. People would walk by just to say hello and see how we were doing. They were all just very nice.
Brookdale Jensen Beach was very big and kind of overpowering. The looks were pretty much the same as other places. A studio was about 300 square feet and not more than 400 square feet. It didnt have a kitchen but it was the same size as the ones with a kitchen. The place felt OK but it was very big. It was nice and out of the way. They had the long-term care in the same building even though its separate, so that made the building bigger. It seemed like theres a lot of walking to get from point A to point B. They had a singing group, a bunch of people were out, and two ladies were singing old songs that the people knew. They were in a nice room at the end of the hallway sitting comfortably. It looked like everybody was having a good time. The staff that I met was very nice, maybe because theyre trying to sell the product.
Ida, the person who took us around Brookdale Jensen Beach, was wonderful. We loved it, and it's a wonderful facility. I'm going to keep it in mind for myself when I go. I love that they have a beautiful view of a river and a beautiful park right across the street for them to go walking. They had plenty of things to do and they'll take them anywhere they want to go. They'll also feed them anytime they want to eat.
Brookdale Jensen Beach needed some updating. The dining area was too confined. If you're unfamiliar with the place, it was difficult to get to. It wasn't inviting. The people working there were very good at what they do and very accommodating. There was somebody playing the piano in a not very spacious place. The location of the activity wasn't conducive to people who had a problem getting around. The entertainment was OK. We saw some people doing some arts and crafts. The food looked OK. It wasn't my type of place that I would put my loved one. It wasn't warm.
Brookdale Jensen Beach was a nice facility. They had some of the nicest apartments. They were very spacious and big. There's something going on all the time. I really liked that there wasn't an exact schedule and that you have to be there for breakfast or lunch. You can sit down in the dining room at two in the afternoon and still have lunch if you want. Everybody was very nice and helpful to anybody who had questions. They have a buddy the first two weeks that somebody's there and that one person can take them and be with them every day, introduce them to people, show them around, and show them how things work. I liked that new residents are not totally alone the first week or so that they're there.
My husband is in the dementia unit of Brookdale Jensen Beach. It looks like a very nice place. They have independent living on the first floor, assisted living on the second floor, and secure dementia/memory care on the third floor, which I don't like that it's on the third floor. I have gone through Florida legislation, and there's no ruling that says that they have to be on the first floor. Other states have that, which I would feel better about as far as evacuation goes. However, they do have hurricane windows but there's no place to walk. My husband likes to walk, but he's had a major stroke. We've had problems with them before. The current owners bought it maybe two years ago, and they told us about all of the reconstruction they would do, but nothing has been done. The windows in the bedrooms are lovely, and the people that work there are lovely, but I feel that they are not going above and beyond what they should do. I am not really happy. The facility overall is lovely. Everything looks pretty until you get to their hallways where the carpet is old and stained, but they clean it every month and doesn't smell so that's really good. The rooms are wood, so they don't have that problem in there. It's always clean. My husband is clean and taken care of. The meals are fine, except that they have to bring them up from the kitchen on the first floor. They're wrapped in foil, and they try to reheat them. It isn't their fault. They are hot when it comes up, but my husband won't sit down until it's in front of him. It looks like good food. They usually have fish or chicken dishes and snacks. I think they do a good job with the food. The dining room is dark. The only rooms that have light in them are their own rooms. The living room doesn't have any windows in it. They were going to knock the whole wall out in the dining room because on the other side are windows, which is very nice because it's going to let the light in.
My mother is in Brookdale Jensen Beach. My first impression is that it is a very large place that appears to have competent people. The room looks fine and has a kitchen, a living room, and a bedroom. The staff seems fine. She goes to bingo. As far as I know, the food is good.
We went to Brookdale Jensen Beach and liked it because it seemed that they offer a lot of activities and a lot of resources for their residents than where he is at now. Their staff turnover is very low, and it’s a very happy place. The whole facility is very impressive.
