I love Brookdale Glen Ellyn. It was wonderful. However, my mother-in-law is in Connecticut and she didn't want to move. Everything seemed very nice, and it would have been just fine if she was willing to do it. It was one of the best ones that I have seen. I thought it was a great fit for her. We love the tour. It was excellent. The woman who gave us the tour was great. The rooms were clean and nice. They were going through some renovations, so that was even nicer. In that regard, it showed beautifully. It didn't smell, which was very nice. We talked to some of the girls that were already there, and they were obviously happy. The dining room was nice. I think they had great activities. The library was great. The piano and the garden were nice.

Brookdale Glen Ellyn is beautiful and very clean with wonderful facilities. They have a whirlpool, a library, games, bingo, and a bus that takes you to different places, including shopping and doctors. The staff is very friendly, cordial, and welcoming. They serve breakfast every day, but only 25 dinners a year. Another downside is that there are long distances to walk from the units to the elevators and from the elevators to the dining room.

I liked Brookdale Glen Ellyn. It was very pleasant, and the apartments. while on the smaller side, were nice. It was a convenient area for me and I like the idea of having medical services right on-site, it's something that's important for me. The dining room was very attractive. I especially like that they didn't have really long corridors from the apartments to the activities. There wasn't as much walking as some of the other places I've been at. The place was attractively decorated. The rooms had nice views and I like the little balconies that are available on each floor. The rooms were nice, light and bright because there were a lot of windows, but I thought they were a little short on storage space. There was a nice range of activities.

We liked Brookdale Glen Ellyn. They were very friendly. They provided all the information that we needed. We met some of the residences who seemed happy. It looked really clean. It looked like it was well run. It had a lot of options for different kinds of arrangements like one bedroom, two bedrooms or a studio. It was all nice. They had activities inside the building like arts and different classes. They would take people to shopping, movies, doctor’s appointments or anything that they needed. The staff was very friendly and treated people with respect. The people I saw seemed nice enough. However, I thought it was sort of expensive.

Brookdale was really nice and very upscale, so you'd need a lot of money to go there. The dining room was almost like a restaurant. In the lobby area, they had water, tea, and cookies out for the residents. The rooms were nice and big enough for one person. They took residents out to various activities and had an indoor pool and like a hundred other things to do. A lot of that stuff was extra, so maybe they could improve on including more things in the price, but I did not think they were out of the ordinary for assisted living.
