We choose Brookdale Mandarin for my grandmother because it has the care that we are looking for. I am pretty happy with everything. The staff is very helpful. They have activities. They do cooking and gardening. They are very active. I like that it caters specifically for Alzheimer's patients.

I was not really happy with Brookdale Mandarin Central. It's an old facility, and when we first walked in, a lot of residents there were more like wheelchair bound and needed more help, and my father doesn’t really need a lot of help. I feel it to be more like a nursing home than assisted living. The rooms were really small and really old looking. The staff is wonderful, and they are very nice. The facility looks kind of dark and depressing.

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts. The community will be undergoing a full renovation over the next two months, and we would love for you to keep us in mind and come back to see our progress!

What I don't like about Sterling House of Jacksonville is that they built a covered walkway to the entrance of the facility, and all the residents, with all sorts of medical conditions, just lined up on each side and eyed everybody who came in and went. If someone is coming or going, it's kind of depressing. Also, the dining area is large, but it has dark wall paneling, and there isn't that much sunlight coming in. I find it extremely dark. It's probably from the 70's or 80's era, so it's not bright. It would not motivate somebody; it is just like walking into an old room. The staff is extremely friendly, the cleaning people, and all that, but the residents seem more subdued. I would associate that to the atmosphere of the facility. The whole facility looks clean, but it's extremely outdated. If I had to say one thing about it, I'd say that it seemed depressing. I think it is still recommendable; the cost is a little bit less per month. I wouldn't say, "Don't go", because the staff seems like they are really trying to bend over backwards for the people. I am just saying that if someone were to become a resident there, I think it needs to be somebody who is a bit more subdued. They have programs and all, but the people aren't that active; they seem more like, for lack of a better way to describe it, like they were somehow sedated. They just stare at you, except for a few that come up and say hello.

We visited Sterling House of Jacksonville, and it's all good, but I didn’t see a lot of activities. The rooms were just right.

Sterling House was very lovely. It was not a big place, and I thought it were nice and cute. They let me go in, and I saw the rooms. They were lovely. It was a two-bedroom that had a shower, which was wheelchair accessible. It had a single bed, and they had a separate room in the area that had a chair. They gave three meals a day and they would assist you 24/7. It was very nice. They were sitting at the dining table and having lunch. Most of them were in their late 70s and 80s. Everyone seemed happy and seemed to be more independent. It was kind of a downtown older section where the homes were like where I lived.

We choose Sterling House of Jacksonville because it's not so far away from our home. They treat my Mom so well in the facility and I'm sure she's happy there. I would definitely recommend Sterling house of Jacksonville in Florida to my friends and families.

Weekdays my wife gets good attention, but on weekends I feel they need to do better with their partime help.

The sterling house in Jacksonville is the only one I have visited , but due to their amazing care , the company has ventured out into other cities as well. If that wasn't enough to grab your attention maybe the personal chefs or huge rooms will. Either way if this is your final destination or pit stop along the way , you won't be disappointed. I was lucky enough to play tennis and walk around the premises with some of the residence. Their feedback was exceptional of the facility , and when I asked if there was anything they would like to change , they replied with a humble I have all that I need.

My father in law lived here until he passed away in 2010. Other than having a mix up with his medications on a regular basis, he was treated well and seemed to be taken care of well. We never had a problem with that. Only with his medications not always being administered in time because the center wouldn't always contact his doctor for refills.

I was looking for a good assisted living facility for my mother, and I finally found that beautifull place. My mom have two months living there and she is very happy and motivated and I love that. I am impressed with the service that they give to people and how they care about every single of them. The quality of service is highly trustable and is complemented with the attention of the staff, they also cares about the health & the preferences of the people and make them feel comfortable there, so I trust that my mom is in an really good place. I higly recommend this facility to other people that are looking for a great living place for them, or for them relatives.
