I Visited This Facility
Mom will move into Brookdale next week. I like it, it's smaller, and homier. They do have memory care further on down the road. I found the staff caring, they know every single person by name, and they even talked to them. They have housekeeping, laundry, basic cable, and they dispense medication.
I Am A Friend Or Relative Of A Current/Past Resident
My dad is happy in Brookdale Utica. He has a single room with a full bathroom. The staff is very nice, polite, and very good. The place is very nice and clean, but it's on the pricier side.
I Visited This Facility
Brookdale Utica was a very nice community. It was more intimate. It had a good atmosphere, and it was quiet. However, it didn't seem like a very active assisted living. The place was very lovely, beautifully decorated, and nicely organized. The staff was very nice. However, we put money down for a place, but we are not able to move in, so we're involved with a little bit of a money hassle, and we're trying to get all of our money back. That has probably tainted my attitude about them a little bit.
