I visited this facility
Sweet Life at Brookdale Place Overland Park was fine. However, it was expensive. The staff was good and a bit more caring. I believe they had more activities.
I visited this facility
We visited Brookdale Place. We liked the facility and the way the place was set up. We also like the care that they were offering and the location is close to my sister who lives here. My father is moving in next Tuesday. We thought that it's the best place for him. The room we got has a kitchen, a living room, balcony, and a bedroom. They have card games, dance floor, physical therapy, and outings. They also got swimming pool. We all ate there and we all thought it was fabulous.

My mother lived in Sweet Life for 6 weeks for rehab. She had a single private room which made a big difference for her. The rooms were beautiful. Mom got a lot of attention from everybody who worked there. The staff was wonderful. They were easy to work with and acted like they were interested in the residents' well-being.
The meals were good. There were a little bit of choices for the meals. Mom didn't really do many activities as she just wasn't feeling good and kept to herself. She only played a little bit of bingo. Still, she was happy and comfortable there.

The fact that I live in another state presents a myriad of stressors when it comes to making sure my mom has the care she needs while she experiences the ravages of Alzheimer's disease. I have come to depend on the caring staff at Sweet Life to be my eyes and ears when it comes to my mom's needs and they have not disappointed me. When I placed my mom at Sweet Life, she was malnourished, weighing just under 80 pounds. In the 5 months she's been there, they've ensured that she has regular, healthy meals and she has gained 14 pounds and is now at a weight consistent with her height and age. The staff is in regular contact with me regarding my mom's needs and any accidents or incidents she might experience. Every time I visit mom, I can count on seeing her clean, well groomed and comfortable. I can also enjoy the clean, homey atmosphere of the common area. I am very satisfied with the services and the care that the staff provides and would recommend this facility to anyone
I visited this facility
This facility is quite large, offering three types of accommodation. The Assisted Living building is as clean, well-kept, and as luxuriously decorated as all the Brookdale facilities I have seen. The common spaces here are designed to resemble outdoor buildings with faÃ§ades such as a cinema and coffee shop. The location, broadly speaking, is conveniently near major arteries and intersections but the building itself is in a relatively undeveloped section, so it remains quiet. However, there is pretty much only grass and a few small flowering plants on the grounds, no big trees or landscaped sitting areas. In fact, the whole facility seemed to me to lack adequate space for residents to enjoy the outdoors, with only one small patio per section and minimal provision for activities like gardening. Residents' rooms are adequate, with a small kitchenette, but overall seem a little small to me. Many of them do overlook a school playground which my guide said many residents enjoy. The facility appears to be very well run but I did not personally witness much staff interaction while I was there. On the other hand, there was an extensive list of activities for the residents including exercise six days per week, frequent off-campus trips for shopping or food, and other fun things to do. I would recommend this facility for more active family members, or for those who enjoy having more people around rather than a small group.
