Independent Living Reviews for Brookdale Cedar Springs

April 12, 2019

By Margaret

I am/was a resident of this facility

Brookdale Cedar Springs has independent living, assisted living, and hospice care, and you don't have to move out of your apartment. It's wonderful. You get two meals a day, there are rides to take you places, and if I have to go to the doctor I just need to tell them beforehand. The people are very kind and nice, and they clean once a week. I just tell them my problem and they come over and take care of it. They're very proficient. They have a button that I'm supposed to hit every day to tell them I'm alive. They're very sweet and everybody's very helpful. I'm in a separate housing area that's separate from the apartments. I have a backyard with trees, two bedrooms, a living room, and a full kitchen. I have a cat and they don't have a problem with animals. I really like it here. The food is very nice and they come to the table like waiters. They have different choices or you can get a sandwich. They have a ton of activities. It costs a lot more than where I was, but you get the meals, coordinated activities, maid service once a week, and if I get sick they will bring the meal to me. It feels like home and like everything I wanted.

I visited this facility

I was very impressed with Brookdale Cedar Springs. It's a really nice and well maintained place. The staff was very nice, very pleasant, and very helpful. The residents were doing what they want to do. Some were reading, some were walking, some were sitting and talking, and some were doing various other activities. The dining area was very nice, very well maintained, and very clean.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My parents lived in Cedar Springs for two years and it was a good facility. They staff was great and very helpful. But my big complaint was the food because everything was fried and it wasn't good.
