Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale El Camino

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My mom was in Wynwood of Pueblo before. The staff and the rooms were both great. It was really nice. The rooms were pretty large, and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. When she first moved in, she liked the food quite a bit, but after that it started to go downhill. They had musicians come in and play, Bingo, and crafts. She liked the place and she was happy.

I visited this facility

Wynwood is a very nice facility. It's very expensive and I do not think that we will go there. The staff was very nice, very caring, thoughtful and very attentive. I visited two different types of apartments that they had available and they were comfortable. I would recommend it if they could afford it. It would be a very nice place.

I think they are wonderful in helping my grandfather in every way. Very respectful and courteous staff who make me feel at home when I am there to. They offer many great programs and oportunities for my grandfather. They are also offer privacy, which is very nice.

The staff is tremendous! They care about their residents and their needs. They are always very polite and courteous. They always put a smile on my great aunts face. They are very nice to guests as well, and have complimentary guest meals for visitors. Their food is of great quality and not as bad as the nursing homes. They are able to accomodate most living situations and what the resident needs in order to feel comfortable and to get around. The facilities include a patio, plenty of ample parking, computers, phones television,an emergency call system in case your loved one needs help and noone is around. The only thing I didn't like is they really don't have no outside area like a park or a grassy area with benches for the residents to enjoy the outdoors. They do have balconies though that if you are on a high enough floor you can view some of the outskirts of Pueblo and see the outline of the mountains.

Questions about Brookdale El Camino

Describe the overall population of assisted living residents at Brookdale El Camino. What is their average age? What are their favorite things to do?

This community of residents is a perfect reflection of Pueblo. Most of the residents have lived in Pueblo for many years and the small town nature of our residents is around every corner. The community room is filled with the art, Jewelry, and crafts that the residents love to do. Several of our residents have a green thumb and enjoy spending time in our garden just off our patio. We are no stranger to Bingo and other games, but the heart of our residents is in the community itself.

What programs or activities does Brookdale El Camino offer to enrich residents' well-being?

Brookdale has the Optimum life Programs curriculum. At Brookdale El Camino, our programs department does more than provide activities for our residents. The optimum life program helps the community directors to enrich the quality of life of the residents that live with us. We want to take into account each resident that lives with us and give them the opportunity to contribute to the community. Every resident has something to share with the community, Optimum life gives them a chance to do just that. Optimum life focuses on purpose driven lifestyle. We seek to help our residents find purpose in their day. Not just occupy their day with games and puzzles.

What places are near Brookdale El Camino or within walking distance for assisted living residents to enjoy?

Walmart is just down the street from our community. While it might be a little to far to walk to. Our driver makes a special trip every Wednesday to make sure that our residents get what they need. Even if that is just some time outside of the community.

What transportation services does Brookdale El Camino offer to assisted living residents?

Brookdale includes transportation services with no extra costs. We have both a full service bus, with wheelchair lift, and a van. Tuesdays and Thursdays are reserved for medical appointments, although exceptions can always be made. Our residents enjoy scenic dives, and social outings with our Activities directors.

What makes the chef or dining program at Brookdale El Camino exceptional? What kind of menu can assisted living residents expect?

Brookdale takes the dining experience to the next level. We can accommodate many different diets and eating restrictions. Our menu is constantly evolving and adapting to the tastes of our residents. Each month the residents are able to meet with the Dining Room Manager and our Chef to be able to accommodate the requests of our residents. The dining experience is more than what is on your plate, it is the community that eats with you, and the experience you have with our service. Brookdale hires dedicated servers to help make the dining experience the best it can be. We work together to ensure that new residents are able to find friends they feel comfortable eating with so no one has to eat alone.

What safety features or security measures does Brookdale El Camino offer to assisted living residents?

With 24 hour non-medical oversight at the community residents have the peace of mind of knowing that someone will be there to help them at any time. During the day we do 4 hour room checks, unless the resident is our in our community and we know they are ok. Brookdale has a nurse that is on staff and is able to guide our staff to the safest measures if an emergency does occur. While residents are free to come and go as they please, our doors will notify the associates should someone decide to leave after hours.

How does Brookdale El Camino keep residents' families informed about their loved ones?

Diana, our Executive Director, has been in senior living for 20+ years. If anyone knows the importance of communication it is her. Brookdale schedules regular care conferences with families as a part of the move in process. The first one after two weeks in the community, again four weeks later, and every six weeks after that or as needed. Communication comes from every department. From activities, to clinical each director is available and plays a role in making sure you stay informed about your residents.

What is the care staff-to-resident ratio at Brookdale El Camino during daytime and nighttime hours?

Brookdale is different then most companies. Rather than staff off of the occupancy of residents in the community. We staff our care givers off of the care plans that make up our community. So the ratio of staff has less to do with how many residents we have and more to do with how much care we have to do each day and night at our community.

If Brookdale El Camino accepts dogs or cats, what indoor/outdoor areas can they enjoy?

Yes, we accept all fury friends at our community. Our campus has many area that the animals can enjoy. However, leases are requested as we do not have a fenced in area for them. Our team can also help take animals out, clean containers, and exercise the animals if you are not feeling up to it.

What ongoing senior care training does the staff receive?

Brookdale does monthly education for all staff. Topics range from dementia specialty training, safe transfers, socialization, and a number of other topics as well. Nothing is better than the on the job training. Brookdale El Camino has a very long standing team. make sure to ask to meet some of the team when you come in and visit!

What safety features or security measures does Brookdale El Camino provide to protect residents who wander?

As a stand alone Assisted Living, Brookdale El Camino does not have a secured unit for our memory impaired residents. However, the doors will notify the associates should anyone open the door after hours.
