We found a place, my wife stayed at the Brookdale Magnolia for a month, and now we are back at home. It didn't seem to work out for her. I think it is an excellent, very well-run facility. My wife had to stay in an apartment when she went there, and I had to spend all my day with her because she wouldn't want me to go and stay there alone. She didn't want to have the food; I thought the food was very good, but she did not care for it. She wanted her own special food, and although it was included in the price, she never used it. They had lots of facilities, entertainment, and exercising and all that, and she never used any of those. She just was not in it at all and only wanted to go home, although the facility was very good. If I had to search for a place for myself, I would certainly recommend this place.

My brother is at Brookdale. It is very nice. The staff is friendly. Most of them are helpful. My brother is in the assisted living, and he is in a shared room, but he didn't have a roommate yet. I think the room is very pretty. The dining area is very pretty inside, and they sit you with other people so you can be more social. He doesn't do any of the activities, but they have a number of activities that people can do.

I will recommend this community. I like the fact that they have a bus because he has doctor's appointments, and he needs transportation back and forth. It is very helpful. Also, the majority of the staff is very friendly. However, sometimes he needs more assistance than they are equipped for -- like lifting. They don't have a lift, and sometimes I think it is a little hard for the people to lift him, but they are always friendly.

Brookdale Magnolia was the most cost effective for my mother. Overall, we are very pleased. They have exercise, cocktail hours every Friday, singers come in, bonfires, bible studies, knitting groups, and drama clubs. They have parties for birthdays and special holidays. They have field trips. If I couldn't go with her to the doctor, they would take her. It's very highly recommended.

I had visited Brookdale Magnolia. It was lovely and very nice. It was very convenient. It was right up the historical part of town, and it was just a beautiful place.

Crown Pointe was wonderful. It was great. The gal who gave us the tour and actually told us about the facility took her time and showed us around. It was amazing! I would highly recommend the facility to anyone. I was proud to walk in there, was proud when I left and would be proud to walk my sister in there.

Crown Pointe was a very nice place and it looked like everybody was happy and content. I felt very welcome. They had activities of all kinds. The dining room was nice, neat and clean.

Crown Pointe was really nice and we were really impressed. Everyone was great. The only concern was that in a year they raised the fees and if they raised it every year, we won't be able to afford it.

Emeritus is really nice. People are really great. Everything was nice about the facility, the building, the dining hall, and the rooms. They have activities like bingo and yoga. Grandma could just go down to dining hall and get her three squares a day and not have to worry about a thing. If she calls, they come and take care of her needs. I'd definitely recommend it.

Crown Pointe was an absolutely beautiful facility. The staff were very good, attentive and caring. The administrator was awesome. The food was good and they had lots of activities. My mother-in-law was quite happy there until her dementia worsened and she needed more care.

Crown Pointe is a little outdated and they are in the middle of trying to update everything right now. Rooms are better in terms of size and arrangement wise. The staff are very nice and hospitable. However, we are just concerned for my mother-in-law's well-being because of construction work going on.

Crown Pointe was a small facility but it was too far from where I lived. I liked it if not for the location.

I visited Crown Pointe just to get some information. The place was very nice and the staff was very accommodating.

From the outside the facility is very accommodating. The building looks modern. I did not particularly like the staff. They rarely smiled and they did not feel very welcoming to people visiting their relatives. Other than that they were great with my great grandmother and I did feel she was in safe hands. The room she was in was smaller than I would have liked as it would be pretty crammed when my friends brought there families to visit her. They never treated my great grandmother with any sort of disrespect, even though her brain had been affected by the stroke and she it was fairly difficult for her to communicate all of the time. I would recommend this facility to another person if they do not mind not having a huge room to stay in with a basic 19 inch television. The main reason my mother chose this facility was that it was about a mile from our house. We did not visit or tour any other facilities.

We visited the Crown Pointe assisted living facility while searching for a place for our aunt to live in the area. The outside area was very nicely maintained. The grounds outside offered easy access for residents, where they can enjoy walking around freely safely each day. We could see that there is also plenty of space to have cookouts, parties and picnics.

The foyer was fresh and bright with very nice decorations and furniture. The facility can accommodate all levels of ambulation. Communal activity rooms were spacious, with comfortable furniture.

The seniors can easily socialize, make crafts, play games, watch TV and films and participate in many stimulating activities. Residents can also tend the garden. The color scheme throughout the building were soothing and comfortable. All of the indoor rooms had plenty of fresh air and light. Each room was beautifully decorated and furnished.

The private rooms featured plenty of space in nicely decorated surroundings. All had a great deal of natural light and fresh air with very comfortable furniture.

Seniors can use the exercise room at any time and also go on daily walks. Aerobics and yoga classes are offered, and they also have DVDs available.

The residents go on trips to visit the many of Corona's art galleries and museums, eat at casual and fine restaurants and enjoy the many cultural events offered.

The dining room was quite nice, with plenty of space. The food we saw looked and smelled delicious. The menus all had healthy food options for all kinds of diets. Healthy snacks are offered all day and into the evening, as well as whenever residents request them.

The residents here looked very content in this living environment and we could see that they were all well cared for considerate and kind staff.
