Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Mariana Butte

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My father-in-law stays at Sterling House at the Orchards. The staff are very friendly and very helpful, and they seem to have a very good rapport with all the people there. The apartments are wonderful, but the only thing that I'm concerned about is the bathroom; a doorway into the bathroom from the bedroom would be a good idea. It is very clean, everything looked fine, and the patients seemed very happy. I wasn't able to stay for a meal, so they gave me a pie to take home, and it was very good. The dining room looked beautiful. I didn't see anything that was of concern to me with security. They have crafts, exercise, and music. I would recommend them.

I was able to go to Sterling House at the Orchards because my friend's mother was there. It’s a very nice facility, and I think she was very comfortable. It seemed like they have very good care, good programs, and that they met all her needs. They have good apartments, and overall their accommodations are great. They can all have food they want to eat. They can come and go as they please with their family. The staff are very accommodating. They treat them as individuals, not just as a group. The residents get individual attention, and I can see that their residents are very happy. They have physical therapy, a TV room, nice outdoor yard, and they have a lot of activities going on.

The staff at Sterling House at the Orchards were very friendly and nice, but it seems like they are cutting the cost with regards to the personnel because everybody like the nurses or the aides are doing all the work from serving the food to cleaning the room. They should have a separate staff for that and I am not happy with it. I think they need to hire more staff. The units are nice and the atmosphere is good, but the food is horrible.

It is hard to find more quality places that have an opening but thankfully, Sterling House happened to have one available for my dad. The place is as good as their staff. They're doing very well. He has a two-room unit wherein it has a bedroom and a separate living room. It is a more like an apartment, which is what we wanted for him, but he still has the same services as the assisted living. He still has all the meals, the supervision, and the activities, all those things, they have all that available for him, so that has been good. My dad had a stroke so he needs some assistance and so it is nice that they have that there.
