Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Skyline

Brookdale Skyline was a very nice place but very big. It had well over 500 people. It was too big for me and slightly more expensive. It had a lovely setting except that it was sort of isolated from the community. I thought the room was a little bit chopped up, and I would have found it hard to arrange my furniture because there were so many doors but roomy and comparable to other places. It had more windows.

My mom was in the rehab center (skilled nursing) and in Clare Bridge Memory Care. The experiences at both places were terrible. Her care in rehab was substandard. Left to sit in soiled diapers. Getting very little attention. I have no complaints about the therapists. They seemed to be doing their jobs. She had been there 3 times and hated it. I found out that she's still being billed for a wheelchair but she passed away at the end of July and here it is, almost December 1st. They had her sign for the chair and she had Alzheimer's. They don't know where it is, at this point. As far as Clare Bridge...a complete nightmare. Falls all the time, smelling like urine, her clothes turning up missing, rude employees, etc, etc, etc. So many urine stains on her (almost) brand new mattress, watery diarrhea left to dry all over the bathroom floor and lower part of the walls. She was on her death bed, semi-comatose, and no one called us for a day and a half. I found her in that condition when I went to visit her. Everyone was outside having a bbq while she was left in her bedroom, alone. We all missed out on time with her while she was left by herself. I wouldn't let either place take care of my neighbor's dog!!!

The place that would suit my parents' needs is Brookdale Skyline. We liked the setting, apartments, and amenities. It seemed to be well-kept, and it's close to where the kids are. It would allow my parents to stay together. They wouldn't have to move if their circumstances changed.

Visited many communities before selectingSkyline. From the time you walk in the door, you feel it is something different - in a good way. Staff and residents are so friendly and smiling. There is energy and activities no matter where yo walk. Other places it is dead, stale feeling - no one smiling. The property is well maintained with wonderful views. There is ample parking, everything you could want. The biggest difference is they care. They ask questions and listen to what you have to say. It just keeps getting better all the time. Great value for the dollar.

I'm at Brookdale Skyline. My daughter and I chose it because its suits my price range and needs more than the other ones. They have apartments and cottages. I chose the cottage because it provides a garage. We have a lot of hail and I do not want my car to get deformed, so the garage suits me. I have two bedrooms and two baths. I have a breakfast if I want and either a lunch or a dinner included in the price. I just have to pay for utilities, internet, and the telephone. Otherwise, everything else is inclusive.

Brookdale Skyline is absolutely excellent. The food is good, the staff is excellent, the facilities are first-rate and improved all of the time. I don't have criticism for any part of the facility whatsoever.

There are things that I like about Brookdale Skyline, but there are very few activities in the assisted living unit that appeal to my dad. They don't have consistent medical support. We had to wait a long time after we pressed the call button for someone to come assist us. They are not patient enough to wait for my dad to try to do things on his own. I like my dad's apartment, though. It is a one-bedroom apartment, so it is spacious enough for him. The food was just OK. In the assisted living, the food comes from another building, so the quality is not as good as in the independent living.

This is a really great place. The location and views are wonderful. The staff are so helpful, kind and friendly. There are so many places to walk and so much to do. The swimming pool and exercise area are really nice. I was surprised how fabulous and affordable the garden homes are. I don't know of any place else in Colorado that has anything like them. My mom loved her home there but now she loves her apartment there and has made so many friends. This community has been a blessing for my mother and for our entire family.

Mom wasn’t very long at Village at Skyline. The prices were really good for independent apartments. They have a pool which is very nice. It has a beautiful surrounding as it looks over the Red Rocks in Colorado. Their food is basically buffet style, and it is really good.

I am now at Village at Skyline, but I have my doubts about something. The facility is clean, and the workers are very nice and prompt. The food is alright, the activities are excellent, and the room is like an apartment. They have peak buildings, and they just bought Emeritus. I am happy and comfortable here.

Village at Skyline was nice, but there aren't a lot of windows. It's a pretty dark facility. Where the assisted living people eat is kind of down in the basement area or the lower level.

Brookdale Skyline is a beautiful place. The staff is very helpful and know their residents by first name. The atmosphere is good. Mom's apartment is comfortable, clean, and seems to be well cared for. The food is very good and very tasty.

My dad used to live at Brookdale Skyline. It was totally under construction with dangerous conditions, like wall coverings just laying on the floor, wires dangling from the ceiling, and construction equipment easily accessible to people, including my father who has memory issues. It looked bad. Some staff members were pretty darn good. Some couldn't get it right after repeated requests. For example, my father was getting narcotic medication which he shouldn't have been getting for a couple of months and repeated requests for services such as unplugging his plugged toilet couldn't get done. I was super disappointed. The decent part of it was the activities. Crystal, the activity girl, was nice and tried hard, and I was satisfied with that portion. The food was OK. They could improve on maintenance. My father's toilet would back up and stay that way for days. I would call to complain and go back two days later and he still couldn't use his own toilet. A toilet seat broke off, leaving it basically a real hazard for falling, but nothing was done, so maintenance was extremely poor. Cleaning was extremely poor. His shower was not cleaned at one time for over a year. Zero. I hired a family member to clean his apartment because it was poorly handled. The building was being revamped at an excruciatingly slow pace. As you walked down the hallway there were large, open areas with lumber, saws, construction materials, and nails right there. If my father had chosen to go beyond the little yellow caution tape, he would have found himself in a very dangerous place. My father has poor memory and poor judgment. Some of the nurses and the folks who checked on my dad were pretty good. There were some caring, decent people there. The problem from my perspective was higher up the ladder, and when I complained to the supervisor or chair managers, nothing was done. My father needed a review of his appropriateness to be there. Three weeks later, nothing. It's really disappointing and yet there were a couple of people whom I consider champions.

Exceeded our expectations. Staff and residents are so friendly, caring and they make it a community. My mother was able to live in one of the wonderful garden home for a couple years before moving into one of the apartments. I do not know of anyplace in Colorado so nice or that offers everything they have to offer. It was a blessing.

I went to visit Village at Skyline and it was very upscale. It had a quite pleasant atmosphere. The place was clean enough and sanitary. The staff were very nice and polite, and they were very eager to have me there. I ate there, and the food was quite excellent.

We visited Village at Skyline several times and it looked appealing. The staff was very gracious, most courteous, most forthright and most considerate. They answered all our questions and showed us the available models. We had a very good relationship with them. We ate there several times and it was excellent, the food was good.

Village at Skyline is a really large facility. Basically they have everything there. It got independent living, assisted living, memory care, and long term care. This is the only facility that had all of those. The rooms were very nice. The staff was very nice, knowledgeable, and helpful. We had lunch there and the food was very good. We liked it, but that type of facility is too large for my mother-in-law.

We were totally pleased and almost blown away with how spacious was Village at Skyline. The floors are light colored and really, really nice. It was a well done tour and they were extremely nice. They offered us dinner at the same time. The dining area was very spacious. There were also good choices of rooms and lots of options. You can have a 2-bedroom with an extra room for an office. Everything was wonderful and everything was professionally done.

It was great, and I really liked the facility. However, I was told I don't meet the age criteria to be a resident there. I'm 61 and think that should be fine.
