I Am A Friend Or Relative Of A Current/Past Resident
My grandmother moved into Brandon Woods. They've been wonderful, they have a lot of activities, so she's active and has a lot to do. They have wonderful food, a great staff, and everybody has been friendly and welcoming to my family. They made us feel included in everything when we all sat down, and worked as a group to find out the best health care plan for her. We really enjoyed it. The food offers a good variety, everything I tried was very good, and they even had menu options. The staff was amazing, very interactive, and on top of everything to make her comfortable. I was most excited about the activities, they have activities every two hours, all different kinds, and that's what grandma seems to enjoy the most. They even have happy hour on Fridays, where they play music, and have some snacks.
