Memory Care Reviews for Brookdale North Glendale

December 13, 2011

By Student Volunteer

I visited this facility

My experience with this facility stems from volunteering at the location several times. Emeritus caters to patients who have memory issues. Overall, the facility is nice but has nothing stellar. First, I will discuss the environment. From my visits, I can that the environment is very clean and the staff works hard to uphold such standards. The decor is nothing special, even a little bland. There is a sky light in the center of the facility, some indoor real and fake plants, and a very small outside garden in the rear of the facility. For the activities, each time I visited the residents were either playing bingo, watching T.V., getting nails painted. It's the usual stuff one would expect from a stereotypical nursing home. However, they do try to put on special events and I once attended a western themed dance and got to dance with some of the residents. Finally, the staff is competent but not special. There are several workers who are very pleasant, friendly, and are great at interacting with the residents. Yet, the majority of worker s there doesn't seem to enjoy their job and can even appear a little mean. In my opinion, Emeritus does its job well but does not exceed.
