Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale North Scottsdale

I am/was a resident of this facility

We’ve been at Brookdale North Scottdale for three years, and we couldn’t be happier. They feed us. They clean up after us. They do the dishes. They clean my apartment. They change my beds every week. They do my laundry. They take me wherever I want to go like to doctor’s appointments. The dining set up is fine. Some days are better than others with the food. We love the people, the caregivers, and the people in the offices. Everyone is very concerned about our happiness. We can’t ask for more.

My brother is in Brookdale North Scottsdale. It is very nice, bright, pretty, and friendly. The residents seem very happy there. The rooms are beautiful. Once a month, they have a family-themed dinner, and the families are invited courtesy of Brookdale. It is very nice. The people are amazing. Everybody says hello and knows everybody’s names. It is extremely pleasant. I would recommend this community.

The quality of care has gone down a lot in recent months. It's still very clean but it's not the same care or food that it was when grandpa first moved in.

My mother in-law moved into Brookdale. She has an apartment with a living room, a kitchen, and a bedroom. The facility has a restaurant, walking paths, a theater, and game rooms. They have 17 items on the menu at all times and three entrées for each meal. The food is great; I wouldn’t have my mother-in-law there if it wasn’t.

We went to Brookdale North Scottsdale (formerly Freedom Inn at Scottsdale), and it was an excellent visit. We gained a lot of information from them. They had nice rooms, and the dining room was clean and efficient. We had lunch, and it was acceptable. We were very comfortable there.

Brookdale was great. Mom liked it. It’s kind of small, not too huge, which was nice. It’s more intimate because it wasn’t so big. I liked the presentation and the man that gave us the tour was excellent. He gave us the most precise and accurate description than anybody had ever given about their type of care, levels of care, and licenses in AZ. He was very particular about describing how the license made the difference because they were licensed for assisted living.

Brookdale was very good, and the staff was very accommodating. They have a very high level of medical assistance available. It was an assisted living, medical-type facility, and it was not what my parents were looking for. It was very good, but it was not the right fit.

Brookdale North Scottsdale has memory care, which my mother needs. That is why I chose it. It is clean, and they are very helpful. The dining rooms are done with really nice linens. It is very appealing. They have different activities throughout the week, which varies from day to day. They have a music room and a bus that takes them to different events or shopping.

We were very happy with Brookdale North Scottsdale (Formerly Freedom Inn at Scottsdale). It was a wonderful meeting with my brother, myself, and my mom. A staff showed us around, and he was very patient as my mother was trying to decide what she wanted to do and kept in touch afterwards too, which was really good. Their facility was a little brighter and lighter, which was good for her. They offered a lot of different programs. You had a good feel when you went in there. They had all kinds of activities, and the location was good for her and for her church. They did provide transportation. The people were very welcoming, it was very comfortable, and I had no issues. Their pricing was a little higher than other places that we checked into, but it was a good experience.

Brookdale North Scottsdale is another one I visited. I didn't spend a ton of time with the staff, but they seem fine. I just really went on the tour. I saw an activity sheet, and they had a whole list of top activities, but I didn't see anybody in particular doing something. They have the clubs and outings to supermarkets. I think the rooms were OK. They were comfortable but not anything special. The community seems very clean. They were OK. It wasn't anything really great or really bad. It was just sort of middle of the road. I didn't really care for this one because it was just OK, but there was nothing particularly bad.

We really like this facility. The staff were very friendly and very helpful. They showed us around, and the place was very clean. Brookdale North Scottsdale was our preference over the ones we looked at. They had their own PT area, a nice cafeteria, a room for bingo and games, and a small library. Overall, everything was nice there.

We visited Brookdale out in Scottsdale. The place is wonderful, and we are trying to get my mother-in-law in there. The rooms are beautiful, clean, and spacious. The activities they have are great. They have a book club, movie nights, and TV watching. It just goes on and on.

This community was closer to my home. I thought the employees were very dedicated and passionate, and they seemed to like working there. Plus, it was clean; it didn't smell. My mom was able to chat with a lot of the residents -- similar backgrounds she supposed -- so she is in a socialized group. Her room is adequate, and the food is fine. They have discussion groups, Bingo, exercises, they go on little field trips, they have crossword puzzles and speakers coming in, and they have family nights where we get invited to join her for dinner.

We chose it mostly because the food was good. That was the biggest reason and also because it was bright and clean. The rooms were just adequate; they don't have much. The staff was fine. There were lots of activities. They have bingo; they have dancing; they have music. They have family night where people come in. They have exercise and they have outings. They have arts and they have bowling. They have everything you might want.

I really like this one from all the facilities I've visited. I like them because they were willing to work with my dad who is an avid gardener. They were willing to give him a spot of land that he could use to grow some vegetables and keep up his hobby. They offer lot of different activities and they were mostly determined by the residents. They had a resident council that made a lot of the decisions about what going to go on in the facility. The facility is very tidy and they had a variety of different types of apartment options available. We met some of the caregivers while we were there and I was very pleased with the attitude of the workers.

The rooms were spacious. They invited us to dinner there and the food was good. That's what we like best. I do know they had an activity board but I don't remember what they have in particular. As a whole, it was a nice place but it wasn't what we needed at that time.
