I visited this facility

Brookdale was very nice and the person who gave us the tour was very helpful. I was impressed with the rooms; they are not very big but they’re of good size. Everything was clean. They were doing some kind of arts and crafts when I visited the place. It was comfortable and kind of made me feel at home.

Brookdale was very nice, everybody was very friendly, and it looked like they had a lot of activities. They have an activity board to tell you what?s going on, they had a little crafts, painting, and chair exercises. It was a good experience.

Everything was great when we visited Brookdale Charleston. Their rooms are of good size and clean, but they didn’t have a kitchen in there. I have eaten there, and the food is very good. Their dining area is beautiful. The managers were excellent. They have all kinds of things like movies, games, and bingo -- tons of things to do.

Horizon Bay Charleston was a nice place. They have a dining facility. It is a big place. The rooms were OK, but a bit small. I am looking for five years down the road. I wasn't looking to move in immediately. They have a lot of game rooms, television, and sing-a-longs. I recommend they go around and look at them.

We actually have my mother's name on the waiting list at Horizon Bay. I thought it was nice enough. I liked the arrangement of the Alzheimer's unit where everything was kind of centrally located. The rooms were kind of in a circle and they all opened up into a central common area and I thought that was very good. I liked the fact that the rates were consistent; they didn't have different levels of costs depending on the amount of care. They offered one rate and it included all levels of care. It did not go up if they had to do a little something extra for the patient. I thought the rates were reasonable and it was more centrally located to my home than some of the other ones. I thought that they had a nice little garden area that was left open on nice days. My mom's a really outdoorsy person and I thought that she would like the fact that on a nice day, she could just walk out and be outside. I thought that was really nice and you can do gardening if you like. She is not a gardener, but she does like flowers and plants and things like that.

Horizon Bay was very nice, but they did not have a room available. The staff was very nice, helpful, and informative. The rooms were a bit smaller, though. They have a memory care facility, which was what I wanted.

I visited Horizon Bay. We didn't choose this one because it was farther away from us to visit for one thing and then we have to cross some major bridge, so if there was a storm or something, that might be a problem. The place and their rooms were fine. Overall, the facility was probably recommendable. Regarding the staff, I didn't really get to know them that well.

Horizon Bay is a very nice facility. My mom has been there since end of April. They have different levels of care and she's in the memory care area. She loves the staff and they all love her. Her room is a bit bigger, but it is still nice. The facility doesn't smell bad and that was the first thing that attracted us.

My mother stayed at Horizon Bay in Charleston. She was in the Clare Bridge Wing which was the memory center of the facility. I liked the facility because the patient ratio was good, the residents were well monitored. The staff also kept the residents active. I observed though that the residents don't get enough fluid, so I would suggest they offer more. The food was very nutritious and well-balanced. There were semi-private and private rooms complete with bathroom. They had good recreational program, and a diocese also came to the facility.

Some of the patients seem to have to wait longer than usual in order to receive necessary help. Althought the facility was clean, the staff was not always as friendly as they should have been. I did like both facilities though because a beautician would come in to beautify the women residents.

I visited this facility

I thought the facility was very clean and well structured, but some of the staff were a little slack. Sometimes they would "nudge" the older folks along to get them to go faster or get upset when the older folks got confused.
