Don: "Brookdale Lewiston was good and excellent. The staff was helpful and professional. The apartment we saw looked alright.

There was a lot of crowding and we had to wait for an elevator, and some of the residents were a little bit rude about wanting to get in the elevator. The facility was very nice though."

Robert: "My father is a resident of Wedgewood Terrace. My father had issues that required care, but his experience so far is fine. The staff takes him to his regular doctors' appointments, and follows the orders that my father is supposed to follow with respect to the care and medication prescribed to him. They're very good with that. He's reasonably happy in this community compared to the place where he was before. Since he moved into Wedgwood they prescribed some medication which s... (read more)
