I visited this facility

The Gables at Brighton was beautiful with also beautiful rooms. They offered driving to doctor’s appointments and to grocery stores. The staff was very nice, the food was good, and the cost was reasonable. I think they have everything, like they can get their hair done, exercises, music room, gauging people in different things, and reading groups. It is not assisted living, so they didn’t have medical back up, but I think they should have a medical back up in case they fall.

Gables at Brighton was nice, but they only do like all inclusive, and I was looking for more of a meal program where you wouldn't have to go down every breakfast, lunch, and dinner with everybody and you could just pay as you go, and they do not offer that.

Gables at Brighton was clean. It was spacious and nice. It was a good place to be. It was really homey. They have arts and crafts. It was very nice. Regarding the neighborhood, it's a very busy residential area, but it is kind of set back a little bit, so that makes it nice. It's convenient. It is near a hospital.

The Gables at Brighton is in a pretty wooded area, but it is centrally located. There are a lot of things very close by, i.e., grocery store and the doctors. The apartments were lovely. They weren't huge, but they were plenty big enough. The views out the window were beautiful. You can have a nice walk around the place. There are three meals a day. There are a lot of things to do. The Gables was very nice. The staff seemed to be very pleasant. It was my favorite of all of them, but it was way too expensive for me. The dining area was lovely. It wasn't too big. In terms of activities, there were something every day and there were things that I would have enjoyed. They have a bus that takes you places. They have pool table. They have concerts. I would definitely recommend this place to others.

My father is at the Gables right now. I really like it. For what we need it for, it's just fine for him. They have little programs during the day, 10 o'clock is exercise. The food is very good, and the cleanliness is awesome. It's a very nice environment. It has very nice energy, is bright, and it has been awesome. They have their own apartments. Because some people don't want to just sit around their house and watch TV by themselves, probably, they have a TV room where they can all share the same TV, but at 7 o'clock, they watch movies together, so I guess that would be fine.

Dad was at the Gables of Brighton, but he became ill and needs to go back to the hospital. He was only there for a month. The place was very nice and they took care of my father.

My sister and I toured this facility and happened to like it. As a matter of fact we just moved our father there last week. The price is very reasonable. I like that they provide transportation to appointments. They have a lot of good diverse schedule of activities. Most of all I really like their dining facility. It's really huge and it's like a restaurant than like a dining hall. There are different plans one can sign up for. There's not a breakfast or lunch but a brunch. So the brunch is included everyday but the dinner it's extra and you can sign up for 10 meals a month, 20 or 30. We had him for 20 meals a month. His apartment is nice. The staff seemed caring.
