I visited this facility

Brentwood Estates was very nice. Mike, the manager, was fantastic and gave me a wonderful tour. I would love to be there. It was for my brother who decided not to go there, but not because he didn’t really like the place; it was for other reasons.

I visited this facility

We went to Brentwood Estates for a visit. It's a lovely facility, and it's basically senior living. I need something that has more assisted living. The rooms were nice, and we were treated well. The surprising thing about it was that the one-bedroom apartment had the same price as or was even cheaper than the studio.

I visited this facility

I liked Brentwood Estates, but the price was way too high for me. The staff was OK; they were fine. I liked that it was clean and nice, and the people were really nice.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

I had my mother in Brentwood Estates for a couple of months, and I liked it very much. It was very clean, welcoming, and very warm. It was my mother's choice. I would not have chosen that place just because she needed assisted living, but I let her make that choice. One of the reasons why we left there was because there were times when she needed help, and they refused to help. She was having difficulty too with the meals. There was four weeks that they had to shut down their dining hall. They served meals at the rooms, and the meals consisted of mostly sandwiches. She lost about 25 pounds because she didn't like the food that was being brought to her, and she just quit eating. They need to have management that is more patient and considerate with their tenants, but overall it was a nice place.
