Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Cedar Springs

I am/was a resident of this facility

Cedar Springs is very large and has good size rooms. They have varied activities. The dining room is very nice and clean, and the tables have tablecloths. The meals that I have seen that I brought my mom, she said had been real good food and excellent. I did like the staff; I had a close relationship with them, and it’s a smaller facility. I like the fact that it has only 27 rooms, and its right up the street for me; it's very convenient.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

Cedar Springs is a great facility and they are really caring, really helpful. Financially, that was the best choice. Their staff is very friendly and everyone is helpful. They want to work with you, and they care about the patient. As far as the meals and the food go, my brother really enjoys them. They have different activities, those sorts of things. It is just warm and hospitable. It is clean; their housekeeping does a wonderful job.
