Donna: "She's been living at Brookdale Arlington for a while and we decided to keep her there. The staff is mostly friendly. We have had problems with getting in contact and meeting with someone about her care plan. The activities are not that robust right now. Her room is a studio and it's neat and clean. There are a few things that are broken, like a curtain that hasn't been fixed yet."
