Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Monrovia

We were impressed with Brookdale all around. They were friendly and accommodating. They even invited us to have dinner with them to try the food. We were really impressed with them. The apartments were very clean, and we liked them a lot. The residents looked happy and were busy, which we liked. We checked the people out to see their expressions.

Everything was really beautiful at Brookdale Monrovia (formerly The Gables of Monrovia), but I thought the room that was available was a little bit small. I come from a big house, and it is hard to visualize myself in a tiny space. The people were so nice. They even brought me a free dinner one night. They had excursions once a week. I thought it was nice. I really liked it except for the room.

This place was beautiful. It was much more expensive, but it was a beautiful place. The room was very nice, there was a nice library and a nice outdoor area, and they have laundry facilities. The staff was very nice. There was a Dina Barcelona; she was the one that I spoke with, and she showed me around; she was very nice and helpful. This place was gorgeous.

I feel Brookdale Monrovia's accommodation is more for a residential type and not so much an assisted living. The staff was OK. I would give everything about it an average there. I like the quaintness of it. It is small, and if you are looking for that type of a small facility, I think it will accommodate. I thought the staff there is very lacking. I think overall they need to improve the staff. The rooms are very nice. As for activities, they didn't have as many. My dad didn't participate in too much over there. They do have activities, but it didn't work out. My dad wasn't happy there. It was really difficult to get to the patio area. I don't think they have quite as many activities, and I don't think they were very organized. I did have dinner there a couple of times, and it was very good. The dining area is small but very nice.

My father was only there for six months. It is an upscale place. He liked this place more, but he wasn't as active there. The staff were really nice, but not as outgoing with the residents. The rooms were a little bit nicer and a little bit bigger. I don't remember my father complaining about the food, but I think the food was probably a little bit better. What impressed me were the amount of activities and the friendliness of the staff.

I like this community as they have nursing staff all the time, and it was more like a home to me. The apartments were really nice and new. It was cheerful, and the residents I met were pretty happy with it. They do a lot of stimulation for the residents, they have lots of activities, and they have service people that come in. I saw the salad bar, and it was pretty fresh, but I haven’t actually had a meal there yet. The staff was really helpful and friendly and they showed us all over the place. I just don’t have any bad to say about it. I thought it was really nice.

Gables of Monrovia was sort of middle class. It was very welcoming. The residents were very friendly and very welcoming. They were encouraging us to participate in the activities that they had there. The staff was extremely well presented. They greeted us. They toured us throughout the facility. They showed us everything. They were very nice. They would call back frequently to check on how we were doing. The rooms were nice. The cafeteria was very friendly. The patrons looked as though they were having a good time eating and enjoying their meals. Being in the community, I felt land-locked, even though they had a wonderful view of the mountains. They built this community so that it was sort of facing inwards. There was a small inward patio inside. The apartments built in the interior corners were nice, but the ones on the exterior corners felt more a little closed in.

Gables was very, very nice and organized. The staff was very nice, polite, courteous and keen. They were very attentive to their patients. They gave us a tour and all the rooms were beautiful and well maintained. The dining room, yard and the area were very nice. It was like a vacation resort.

My father lived here and everything was just wonderful. The location was convenient for me because it was near my house. The place was bright and clean. The staff were courteous and helpful. There was a bus that took the residents on trips which was very safe. The food and room were great. I had no complaints with the facility.

Gables of Monrovia was grossly overpriced. I could not afford the place. I went there and I was not comfortable with the people there. Almost all the residents wore fancy outfits. They had the usual one bedroom apartments.

I have visited many facilities in my caregiving career - but the look and feel of this facility cannot compare to any other elderly-care facility. Victorian style housing, restaurant-style fine-dining meals, and an entrance that looks more like a castle than an entrance to a caregiving facility. The food smelled great, the staff were professional and friendly, and it was more like an upper-class apartment complex than an independent living home. I especially enjoyed sitting with my client in the visiting room, where elegant paintings and fancy decorations keep the scenery pleasant and enjoyable for the client and for their visitors. It is also convenient to LA, just about an hour drive, but on the edge of LA National Forest - where the air is clean and the scenery is relaxing and peaceful - and not very noisy at all.
