I am a friend or relative of a resident

Emeritus at Brighton has a lot of activities for elderly people. I haven’t sampled the food, but it seems to be good. My dad has a one-bedroom apartment with a little kitchen. It is a nice sized room. They got bingo, singing, and arts and crafts. As for safety, they got a push button in case they get in trouble. The communication and getting the hold of the right people is the hardest thing. It is too early into it, so I don't have a feel for it yet. He hass only been there for two weeks total.

Emeritus is orderly and clean. My mom is getting to know people, so there are some activities. It did take my mom a lot of time to adjust, but I don't know if it is with her. They seem to be good workers as far as I can see. It just depends on who you are dealing with, but the RAs have been really good and helpful. My mom has a studio apartment which has a small alley kitchen and a bathroom. The dining setup is good. They have bingo and some visiting singers and performers, but I kind of wish they had more crafts. That place seems to be very safe and secured.

My mother was at Emeritus at Brighton. She was there for about three months. The place was alright. A lot of the rooms were quite nice as far as size. It was a lot more institutional. My mom had a nice room, and it actually had a kitchen. The place was alright, and the people seemed to be very nice. The food looked alright. They had movies and bingo. They seemed to have a lot of nice activities for the people, but my mother never really liked going to them. However, they did take her and bring her down to them. The activity lady and the head nurse, I really like. They were very nice. I think the staff was very nice there. Our problem was just before my mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer's, they said they can take care of her through Alzheimer's as long as they don't wander or do anything. One day, my mom did wander off, and they called us to come and get her immediately. I was a little put off by that.

Brighton Emeritus has the potential of being a wonderful place for your love one. The common areas are getting an update, the apartments while dated are small and nice, the care services friendly and helpful, and staff dedicated. Unfortunately, there is a but... The food lacks any imagination and flavor. The dated heating and cooling systems challenging at best, not functional for weeks at a time, at worst. The repair staff try, but lack the training and project management skills to make good on many commitments. The most troubling thing is the amount of time over 20 minutes when the cord is pulled. I'm confident if management focuses on these areas of weakness, Brighton Emeritus could once again be a great place for mom or dad.

I am/was a resident of this facility

I like some of the residents who have enough of their faculties that I can carry on a conversation with them at Emeritus at Brighton. The staff, on the main, is very friendly, but people are all different; some have different abilities than others and there is a point where I don't like people walking in my apartment. I don't like them treating me like I don't have the facilities to make decisions for myself. My family picked this out when I was ill, and they were told that it was a retirement facility, and there would be many activities and things to do. However, I've discovered, I feel, that it is three-fourths nursing home. I do not eat in the dining room, though the dining area is nice looking. My room consists of a living room, a bedroom, a bathroom, and a small kitchen. I have my own furniture; I cook all my meals in my own kitchen, but I have no garbage disposal and no dishwasher. I had to buy my own microwave, so I feel deprived. I like the exercises, yoga, and the activities. I asked to be a volunteer in helping the activities director, so that is the position I am in now, and I feel that I've been very successful in this endeavor, because the people are much happier, and they interact in some of the programs.

I visited this facility

I visited Emeritus at Brighton. The rooms were considerably smaller than the other facility I saw, but they were very pleasant and very accommodating. All the residents actually told me they really like it there. The staff seemed to be great. It was a clean place, and the food looked good. I just thought it was pretty old.

Emeritus at Brighton is where my father is now. I went there January. They had a vacancy, so we put him in there in February 1st. It was quite quick. I went there with kind of the assumption that I wasn’t going to like it, but I was really surprised when I got there. I thought the facility was very clean, very wonderful, and very nice. All the people were very friendly, and the staff was very nice. I was very impressed with this community. They have activities like bingo and ice cream socials. Unfortunately, my father doesn't partake in any of them, but they do have a lot of activities. They even have a barber shop there. My dad is in a private room, which is like an efficiency apartment. It is like a bedroom with an attached bath. It has always been clean. It is cleaned once or twice a week. They also do the laundry every Thursday, and they do an absolutely beautiful job on it. The food is quite good. He gets three meals a day. Overall, it has been three months now, but Dad is quite well adjusted to this community. He is getting along very well. Everything is fine. Dad seems to be happy there, and I'm very happy with it. I consider myself very lucky that I was able to get Dad in there. They also call me quite regularly to let me know how everything is going.
