Brookdale New Braunfels was an older place. It's small and everything just kind of dumps into one room. The lady that I was supposed to meet with was busy, so they had one of the staff members take me on the tour, then the manager came up met with me. There were a lot of people just sitting around and some were playing a game. It was almost mealtime and I didn't really observe a lot of interaction.
Brookdale New Braunfels has a very nice, homey feel. Everybody is very nice, including the residents and workers. My dad really likes it. It has good food. He's in a one-bedroom apartment that is very well set-up, but they also have smaller and larger rooms. They play bingo, dominoes, men's and women's activities, and brain-teases. Musicians come in to play. They have a theme every month; this month, it's '60s rock 'n' roll. Every time I go to visit, a lot of them are always participating in the activities. It's a little pricey, but we're happy with it. It was our first choice.
I visited Brookdale, but it was too expensive. The room was just basic, like a studio, with one room except for the bathroom which was separate. They had activities, like different games and a media room where they could watch movies. The dining area was pretty large. The staff seemed good, polite, and friendly. It was good. I just thought it was a little pricey.
The management team hear was very helpful and extremely professional. I enjoyed the atmosphere and liked the size of the apartments.
Brookdale New Braunfels is located off a main road, near a very quiet community in New Braunfels, TX. The facility is a few miles from major shopping and restaurants, but this is a retirement community filled with everything needed for seniors right on site. This area can be a little busy at times, but the facility is safe, secure, and offers plenty of walking areas on the property. When I first arrived at the property, I noticed the plush landscaping and home-like design. This facility is beautiful inside and out, with clean common areas, open floor plan, and a warm atmosphere. The facility offers assistance with activities of daily living, ambulation, and meals. There is full time housekeeping and laundry services available. The amenities include a salon, activity room, and media room. Some of the residents had dogs, which is something that should be considered for seniors who do wish to be around dogs. The resident population is small and friendly. There is a fulltime activity director who is upbeat and friendly. There are many activities available at the facility. Parties, games, and craft classes to name a few. Many events are planned off site as well, so seniors will be busy at Brookdale New Braunfels. The meals are fair in variety, and above average in taste. The food is not well seasoned due to diet restrictions of some of the residents, but it was still very good. The dining room is clean, and family-style dining is how meals are served here three times per day. The dining room is a little congested, and lacking in décor, but it is comfortable and adequate. Most of the residents appeared to need assistance with walking and moving around. A few seemed to independently move about and socialize. I would choose this facility for seniors looking for a small community of residents to socialize with and a family-style environment. The staff members that I observed appeared to be nice and very patient, and everyone seemed to be attended to. There is not a lot to do in the area within about four or five miles.
Brookdale New Braunfels is located away from the hustle and bustle of a big city, but close enough to access a bigger city of needed. I really like the common areas and the room sizes. The staff was very helpful and the residents seemed happy. Their menu and activity calendar appeared to be planned out well. The community is very clean and well maintained.
