Cogir of Fremont Senior Living had a resort hotel feeling. It's very large and spacious. It seemed like they had a lot of activities there. The staff was helpful. Two different people helped us, but not at the same time.

I thought the ambiance at Cogir of Fremont Senior Living was great. There was a lot of energy there, more so than in other communities. They had a lot of different activities, and it seemed like the seniors participated in them, which is not the case everywhere. They have a nice dining hall with a lot of options and a menu that changes. The quality of the food is not amazing, but it's pretty good. The rooms are nicely laid out. They are in the process of remodeling. They had a lot of really great amenities. When my grandmother is ready to move in, I think this is where she would like to go. It's a perfect independent living facility, and they do have some assisted living available for folks who want to move into it. The tour staff is very sweet and helpful.

Provider Response

Hi Alexandra, we truly appreciate you leaving us a 5-star review! We are excited to have your grandmother join our community. Please let us know if there's anything you might need. Have a wonderful day!

When I went to Cogir of Fremont Senior Living, I had such a good feeling about it. I liked the lady that showed me around and that they had a lot of different rooms. There's a big library, a big outdoor area where they have little parties, and a garden where the residents can have a section for themselves to do gardening. Everything was very quiet, which was very much of a priority for my stepmom. She likes it that way. They have a movie room, classes, as well as an indoor swimming pool for exercise. They serve nice meals and they have all the services that you would need that you can opt in or out of. It's in a neighborhood, so it's not on a busy street. You could go and walk around and there are lots of big trees. It's kind of an older place, but the rooms were nice and they allow you to have a pet.

I loved Cogir of Fremont Senior Living very much. It was great. The meals were very good. The staff was professional, helpful, and supportive. It was clean, well cared for, and well-groomed. I looked at a one-bedroom unit, and it was very nice and very comfortable. It had a full kitchen, a large bathroom, and a closet. Everything was well done. The bathrooms had support rails, so it was nicely laid out. We saw an activity where they were making Memorial Day decorations for their apartments. We saw an exercise going on. People were out by the swimming pool. People were doing jigsaw puzzles. People were coming and going as they wished. There was a bus that took people to doctors' appointments, to shopping, and to excursions. They had a beautiful library that they could go to. I met the activity director, and she was delightful.

I'm going to move into Cogir of Fremont Senior Living. I didn't want to confuse myself and I did a respite there for about a week, 11 years ago. It took me that long to decide, but I'm ready to move in. I went there again and everything's changed so much. They gave me lunch and it was delicious. I didn't want to confuse myself by going somewhere else and I was very impressed with them so I'm ready to move in. One of the directors over there, while she was assisting, was the entertainment person too, and she's the one that showed us around. I went and they explained the difference in the levels of care. I am legally blind and I have to do insulin shots. They informed me that they can't do the shots themselves, but they can probably fill it in the syringe, and then I can give it to myself at a later time during the day. I'll be going to the independent for now until I lose my sight. I was very impressed with the room itself. I know that it was furnished and I have to bring my own furniture, but I was very impressed at the cleanliness. She also took us to the dining room and I had lunch there, and that was very nice of them, too. It kind of reminds me of when I went and did a respite there for a week, 11 years ago. I was still so impressed with it. There are a lot of activities and it was the activities director that showed us around. She said there's a lot of things for me to take part in, but I'm not sure if I'll do that because I'm wheelchair-bound and I had a stroke so my balance is poor. They showed me the library. I think it also doubled as an entertainment room where you can watch TV. I think they also have game tables where you can play mahjong, but I can't even see very well to be able to do that. The library was separate and the dining room was large. We had a very nice lunch and it was very light. I only took the Waldorf salad and a soup, and that was enough for me. The building itself, everything inside changed drastically from when I was there 11 years ago but it's still very clean. It's very easy to get around. I'm going to have to learn how to maneuver myself but I saw a few patients that were rolling their walkers around that had a padded seat.

I visited Cogir of Fremont Senior Living in person. The staff was very friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. The whole facility is superb, but the price was not what I was looking for. There's nothing I don't like about that place. As soon as I walked in, the security, the whole lobby, and everything there was under construction. They are remodeling, which I think is going to be great. The staff is very knowledgeable about what kind of help is needed to care for our parents. They know, spot on, and they provide accordingly. But mainly I don't have that kind of budget, that's all.

Provider Response

Thank you Amy for this great 5 Star Review! We are thrilled that you found our staff knowledgeable and friendly even while under construction. Your feedback is very important and I am thankful that you took time out of your busy day to write this review. Thank you again.

I moved to Cogir of Fremont Senior Living. It's very nice and very welcoming. Like everybody else, they are being very careful with Covid. The food is very good. The people are very, very pleasant. I'm very happy. Right now, because of the Covid, we don't have activities, but I understand that. They usually have a lot of activities that happen on a regular basis. They have a small indoor pool, a library, and I heard they have a church, too.

I didn't like Fremont Retirement Community because it was old and a little dark. The staff member who gave us the tour was very friendly. They didn't have a nurse on staff, and the room had less light. They have activities and specified levels of care.

My mother-in-law is now in Brookdale Fremont. It is nice. Everything is clean. They keep the garden and the area great too. They have a lot of amenities and activities if you want to participate. They take the residents to places and have movies. Some of the staff members are very good but some are just there. When my mother-in-law moved in six years ago, at that time, it was the best assistant living around. However, since then, they have changed hands a number of times, so they keep raising the rent. It has gotten to the point where my mother-in-law needed help getting dressed and bathing. They're happy to still keep my mother-in-law there as long as we have somebody making sure that she is not hurting herself. It is an assistant living place, but we have a private caregiver who goes in for eight to nine hours a day.

I visited Brookdale. The feel was good. They talked me into a dinner, which is open dining, and you can eat anytime all-day long. I didn't feel the value, or quality of the food. I managed to put a hold on a unit I liked, which is a studio. However, I think I would not have access to come and go as I wish.

Brookdale Fremont was a lovely place. I really liked it, but they had the smallest room -- 571 square feet -- and there was a long wait list. I liked the community, and the people all seemed to be very contented and happy. They were walking around with their pets and things. It just seemed like a really nice place to live. She had one apartment that I really liked, but it was just too small for me. I could hardly get in the bathroom. There was only one room for one person to turn around in. The staff seemed to be very congenial, and I was impressed on how efficient everything was run.

My parents are in Brookdale Fremont. It's nice, and the service has been good. They have pretty much everything that they need, and they have activities. The dining area and the service there are nice, but my parents aren't crazy about the food. They have a pool and a hot tub. It's actually really nice.

My mother-in-law has already found Brookdale Freemont, and she’s very happy there. They got the best pricing. The people are very nice, and the atmosphere is good. There’s no complaint. Everything is good. It’s very clean, a little older, average; so for the overall, this is the best combination. They have very good activities. A lot of exercise programs, social programs, movies, and entertainment. It’s just that the place is a little dated, which is fine for the price you pay. Otherwise, it’s clean and nice, and of course affordable.

My mother is happy at Brookdale Fremont. They are all very polite, knowledgeable and very helpful. The food is delicious. The apartment is not large, but it’s big enough for two people. We like everything about it. It has lots of activities and buses that would take the seniors out four days a week. They have a salon, a gardening place for a few people, and a library. I think they use their library for theater nights. They have all kinds of activities as far as exercise and watercolor painting. My mother goes to exercise every day. They have meetings for new people so they could be acquainted. Once a month, they have a birthday day.

I like Brookdale Fremont; it is a good facility. I like that it is a small and comfortable place which means less residents. I also like the people that I talked to at this facility. I like the fact that they will take care of reordering materials for Dad’s medications on a regular basis.

Brookdale Fremont seems kind of run down, old and not well kept up. The staff was friendly, but they did not show us the assisted living, just senior living where you basically have your own apartment, and you just have community meals together. That’s not what I was looking for. I do not know why they did not show us the assisted living facility part. The apartment had electronic monitoring in the bathroom in which you pull a cord for help, and everybody has a pendant to wear. The person giving me the tour did not show me the process fo helping with medications and bathing and stuff like that. Based on what I saw in apartment living, I was not interested to go look further there. I was not impressed, though the apartment was large and had a kitchen. Our first impression of their front desk staff was that they are not very helpful nor very personable.

I liked the openness, the light that came in from the hallway, and the pictures on the walls at Brookdale Freemont. It was bright and very friendly. The staff was good and very nice. The food wasn’t great but good. Everything was pretty nice, except they have a problem with the rooms: they’re not really that easy to access by wheelchair. The square footage was more the size of a hotel room. For two people, my wife and myself, one bathroom and a small bedroom is going be hard to be really accommodating.

I didn't like Brookdale Fremont (formerly Emeritus at Fremont) that much because they didn't have covered parking, and it was also very limited; not everybody is assigned a space. Anybody can also walk in there freely. You do have to sign in what time you came in and whom you're visiting, but they're not secure. If somebody is not at the desk, you can just walk right in. The place and the floor carpeting were older. The rooms were smaller, and their porch was also very small. My friend that lives there has a porch, and she has a row of plants but not enough room for a chair to sit comfortably. If she didn't have plants, she can fit a smaller-sized chair or a little bench. It overlooked a courtyard, which was nice. It is month-to-month rental, which is good because you don't have to commit yourself to that length of time, and when you leave, you can get your money back. The rate was also lower, which included three meals, but you had to share the washer and dryer with other people that live there. The food was also very good.

I enjoyed my visit with Brookdale Fremont. The sales director was very pleasant and very helpful. The apartments were good, and the rooms were average quality compared to others I've seen. The dining rooms looked pleasant. The menu selections looked fine. They did have some exercise equipment and a woodworking shop. They had various activities everyday. The price was good, and the location was very good. It was close to public transportation.

Brookdale Fremont is excellent. The rooms are spacious, and the apartments are well appointed. They're a little rundown, but they are constantly upgrading the carpeting and the painting. Activities are varied and age appropriate. My husband participates in about 25% of the activities. It's been 0% before this, so it's a huge improvement.

Emeritus was a little rundown. It was very clean, it just needed to be painted and needed to be remodeled,but that’s what they are doing now. The atmosphere is very active, and people seemed very happy. It seemed like a really nice friendly place. It has a one bedroom and a studio. They were great, and when I was there they were going to the Oakland Museum. There were a lot of people, so they got them a bus, and everyone was very excited to go. The residents seemed very active and happy. The staff was very nice and very informative, and it was probably the best one I have seen. I was actually very positive, and if they do the remodel I would definitely rate it a 5 stars. At the time I went, it was a little rundown. Everything was great except for just being a little rundown. I had a very positive impression. The food looks fine; it’s not kind the of food I would like to eat, but my father would have loved the food there.

Emeritus was clean and they were more active with more residents. I liked it. There’s nothing wrong with it, but it’s just not the right place for my mother. There were more independent people there. They have enough space, people can cook on their own if they wanted to or dine in the dining room. It looked like a restaurant to me. It was a very nice place. The staff was very nice and answered all the questions that I had.

Emeritus at Fremont is a beautiful facility. We had been invited back to participate in their water aerobics class so that my mother could see how the classes went. It seems like they really have a very full schedule of activities. We did eat lunch there and it was delicious. We looked at a room and it was nice. The staff were all very positive, polite, and nice. The residents seemed to be enjoying themselves. They have vans that take people in.

I found Emeritus to be a delightful location. I liked that it was in Fremont, and it was located in a very central area. It was very close to shopping, public transportation, parks, and recreation. It was far less expensive than the other places I've checked out. They don't have a buy-in; they just had a monthly fee. They offer independent, assisted, and full care, but you had to go in independently and not assisted living initially. The staff was really helpful and went out of their way to let me ask questions. They were very polite, and they seemed to care. They allowed me to share a lunch with them. The supply three meals a day, and the food was in small portions but tasty. They have a menu that they post for the month, and they also have a salad bar. They had studio, one, and two-bedrooms. All the rooms had balconies, which was a nice touch, with a refrigerator, burner, and string that you could pull to call for help. They had a heater and air-conditioner. They had activities, and when I was there, they were doing a form of tai chi. They had trips all the time too, going everywhere. They had free trips locally like to museums and parks. They had trips to gambling places, to San Francisco, and to other countries. They also took them shopping two times a week. They had an indoor pool, which was nice, but it would be better if it were bigger.

I like Merrill Gardens. The place was nice and clean. Their room sizes were pretty good for the price compared to other places. I had lunch there and the food was very good. The people there were friendly and nice. The staff was very nice and friendly as well. They gave me a list of all kinds of activities that they have there. They could take their residents shopping, to doctor's appointments, field trips, etc., just like all the other places. What I like best about this facility was their rooms, their staff and their food. I would recommend this place.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My mom is living in her own little apartment in Merrill Gardens (Emeritus). It is a very nice-looking place. It doesn't feel like a facility at all. It just feels really like a 55 and older apartment community. They have activities for their residents. They have bingo, all kinds of card games, water aerobics, etc. They have entertainments where somebody would come in and play the piano. They have a cocktail hour once a month and activities outside that residents can sign up. They periodically go out to a restaurant together. Food is mediocre though I know my mom would prefer to eat out. Overall, my mom likes it there. I like best that she is not alone in an individual apartment somewhere without anybody knowing who she is or where she has been. If she doesn't show up, somebody would look for her, etc. For instance, at this moment, she is not in the facility. She has been hospitalized and is in a rehab right now. When I go to Merrill Gardens, somebody always asks me about her, "How's your mom?" and I like that. I like that she is part of a community and there are people wanting to know how she is. This place is very expensive for a one-bedroom apartment and the food and activities don't warrant that. Also they could do better if they have more security especially at night. I wish they could be more economically reasonable and that they could improve on the food they serve. However, my mother is comfortable there. She is with other people her age and she is happy there.
