I was very impressed with Brookside. The thing that I like was that it was very open. The rooms were fine; what I like about it was very open, and they had a very nice open sunny area, but they didn’t think he would be a match, so my husband didn’t go there.

I was pleased for the most part with the facility all but one thing, Room/private baths are way to small yes my grandmothe is in assisted care but she uses a walker but still she should be able to move easily in her room and she shared her room which made it worse! I have worked in the health field for awhile and have seen several facilities that I worked at and I think there should be only 1 person in there rooms not 2! and the bathroom was clean but so so outdated and no room for personal stuff Just didn't care for the personal set up. But the staff were so kind and polite from all I could tell and the food was not amazing but deffinately something I as a picky eater could handle. I love the set up of the entire place and my grandmother was very pleased with activities she said she gets really tired because they keep her so busy, but deffinatly happy there I personlly just didn't like the room space.

This is a lovely facility with truly wonderful people and a wonderful atmosphere. It is, by far, the most friendly, warm, and welcoming facility among the nearly thirty I have visited. I was met at the door by one of the owners, who personally took me through several resident activities in progress to meet with the director of marketing. He spent a great deal of time with me, showing me several different floorplans in both the Assisted Living, the Independent Living, and even the Skilled Nursing sections of the property. My guide was extremely warm and genuine, and really seemed to love his job and the residents.
As I mentioned, there were several resident activities going on when I arrived. Nearly a dozen residents had gathered in the common room for "Fireside Chats" led by a volunteer from town. Several others were playing a Wii game in another area, and still more were playing cards. I saw a small army of staff members, each of whom had a big, genuine grin and several were leading residents by the hand or playing games with them. I was truly impressed by the atmosphere in this facility, which is probably a result of their focus on resident-centred care.
In addition to the great atmosphere, The facility was very open, bright, and clean. Its current decor is a bit dated, but my guide showed me a section that had been remodelled, and even the one in which workers were tearing up the floor and replacing fixtures during my visit. Furthermore, the setting and location and idyllic. The facility is located in a smaller town in rural Kansas, but the town has a vibrant feel, and is extremely well-maintained and manicured throughout. The facility itself is surrounded on a couple of sides by agricultural land (soybean fields, I think). It has a very large lawn which surrounds a small pond and has a path with shade trees and a few benches. In addition to the front green space, there are several smaller flower gardens tucked away throughout the property. Overall, this is a beautiful facility, well-run, and my favourite so far.
