Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Palma Sola

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

Brookdale Palma Sola is OK. My father is there right now. His room is not big, but it has carpets and they said they'd replace them with laminates after a year, but they haven't yet. My father has a catheter bed, but it leaked the third night he was there, and it took them three weeks to clean the carpets; I probably asked them four times to do it. They're slow to react. We chose the place because they have an RN on staff from 7 to 7. It was more complicated because he has a catheter bag with special needs, and they offered the best solution for it. He likes it there. It's not bad, but it doesn't give as much attention to each resident. The food is fine and they have all kinds of activities. My dad also likes that they offer transportation. My main concern is that they expect everyone to be independent, but it's an assisted living community. The staff is very friendly, though.

We put Dad in Brookdale (Brookdale Palma Sola). We really like it. It was the nicest one we looked at. They do a lot of activities. It’s a really clean place. They serve really good food. They have other things that entertain the residents there all the time. Their staff is remarkable. I’m happy about it.

Wonderful staff, very caring. Physical therapy was right there on-site, which was great. There is always a monthly calendar of events, which is very effective as far as, let’s say, St. Patrick’s Day and Easter. There were always events to look forward to. I think for a lot of families, the deciding factor is finances. Brookdale Palma Sola is one facility that’s carte blanche versus a monthly fee.

We visited Brookdale Palma Sola for my mother. We liked it, but it was too far from where she lived. The studio apartment was the same size as the one she has right now. They had another apartment that was a little bit bigger, and they had a one-bedroom apartment, too. The dining room was very nice and attractive. The grounds were nice. They had the same activities. If you were in the independent living area, it was just like going to an apartment. However, if you wanted your laundry done, if you needed medication supervision, or if you needed help getting a shower, all of those were extras. However, the assisted living part included everything.

We really liked Brookdale. The person who led us around did an excellent job. We liked it just from her talking, but there weren’t residents milling around. Apparently it was after lunch and on a weekend; everybody was in their room. The common areas were not well lit. They didn’t have simple basic stuff like a hand rail in the hallways. Their furnishings were a little dated, but it was not a big criteria. It was clean.
