I visited this facility

Brookdale Deptford had an A and a B unit. There were 24 people in each unit, and the two buildings didn't connect to one another, so when you have an activity in the winter, I don't know how you can go from one building to the other building because there was no shelter connection between the buildings. If you are in a wheelchair or something, how do you get to the other building? There was building one and building two, but how do they get everybody between the buildings? It may not be that bad in the summer, but in the winter, you are not going to leave that building. I talked to one guy, and when he told me that their level of care does not include daily bathing, I said forget it. If I had to pay extra, I didn't even want to go any further.

My Uncle Nick has been a resident of Sterling House for the past 3 months. When he arrived he was unable to walk and in poor spirits. The staff at Sterling House has not only gotten him to walk over 200 feet with his walker, but they have also lifted his spirits to the point where he now enjoys living there! The nurse's take wonderful care of him and help him to meet his daily goals for walking. His room is always keep clean and tidy, and always has a pleasant smell. My Uncle is also always kept clean and dressed daily.

My dad is nearly 100 yrs old and came to Sterling House 1 in March 2014. He had been bed-bound for more than one year, unable to stand or walk, and he needed care for every bodily function. After 3 months at Sterling House, he is walking with a walker, and today he walked to the toilet and used it with minimal help! The staff at Sterling House is fabulous - they set expectations that dad will wheel himself into the dining room to eat with others and have encouraged him with every small and large success in becoming more mobile and empowered. Dad is adamant that he will walk and become more independent. It is wonderful to see how he has progressed since coming to Sterling House. Thank you to Linda and her staff!

Since my Mother has become a member of this new family she has thrived. Her outlook on life has improved as well as every aspect of her life. I am most grateful to all the staff for her well being and my peace of mind. I would recommend this facility very highly.

I checked out three assisted living facilities for my sister who was falling very frequently. I decided on Sterling House a Brookdale location. I can't say enought about the care that my sister is receiving. They are taking various steps to see that my sister is not falling and injuring her head which could be life threateing. They have gotten her a hi low bed and scoop matress to eliminate some of her falling. In addition she is frequently checked on by the aids so that she is safer. So my decision to have my sister at Sterling House was the right one. Her dog Sabrina is now the mascot for Sterling House in Deptford.

My dad is at Sterling House of Deptford. We chose this for him because of the homey atmosphere and the fact that it was really small. There are only 25 residents per building, and that was a big selling point. Food has been awesome. I don't have one complaint about it. The best thing about this community is the service. So far it has been great.

A decent facility that really watches over the residents. The place feels like a home setting and most of the staff cares.

We thought it was a nice facility because everyone appeared so nice and caring. There are two CNA's I liked. However, they are understaffed. The CNA's clean, change the residents, serve food etc....They don't have any servers. I've even seen the CNA cooking(so it appeared) My mother didn't like the food and no special diets. They went through approximatey 3 directors within two years. No outings regularly. Very understaffed. Be careful choosing this facility.

I visited this facility

We visited Sterling House for my uncle. It was a clean facility. Nothing negative stood out during our visit. Everyone was polite and courteous. There were residents in one of the rooms that were doing some sort of arts and crafts. However, it was one of those facilities that could not offer a private room with a view that my uncle wanted.

I visited this facility

I have visited this facility twice. There are two buildings with 24 rooms in each building. I visited another larger facility but my sister and I prefer the smaller more home like setting for our mother who would be overwhelmed in the larger multi-floor activity driven facility. The staff were especially nice and encouraging when we took our Mother there for a Mother's Day Brunch. The facility is clean with comfortable common areas. The rooms have microwave, sink, dorm frig. The rooms will accomodate a twin bed, rocker or recliner, and a small dinette. They will furnish or you can bring your own furniture.
