I Visited This Facility
We toured Brookdale Wake Forest. The person who helped me was very kind, did a very thorough job of showing me around, and listened to everything I had to say and the concerns that I had about what to do with my mom. She was very compassionate and a good listener. It was a good tour and I appreciated the time they gave me. They explained the monthly rent and gave me a base rent, then explained that for extra services that she might need and how much more a month that would be. They serve three meals, have game days and game nights, and plan some outside activities if the residents can leave and be safe. They showed me a couple of different apartments, including a larger and a smaller apartment.
