Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale South Windsor

March 06, 2012

By white ben

I visited this facility

A residential option for seniors is all that we require once they become old. Doing activities like going to bathrooms, cooking, dressing and showering etc can be undertaken very easily in assisted living. I visited this facility to let my father live a peaceful life. I found it nice, safe and secure for 24 hours. Medical facility is available in close vicinity. The residents enjoy all kind of luxuries at reasonable rates. The facility is quite cheap and does not cost extra burden. Good quality food is available as desired by the residents. Routine is quite attractive and every effort is made by the management to let everyone form part of this home. Residents can contact their siblings and enjoy the facility of transportation for going anywhere. I liked the facility being neat and tidy. It has been experienced that most of the people get settled fairly quickly in this particular facility. Still, if some one feels lonely, staff on duty provides a warm and friendly gesture. Surely, it is a nice place to stay
