Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Fort Myers Cypress Lake

July 03, 2019

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

I chose Brookdale Fort Myers for my husband, and it was terrible. The staff is not very friendly. The layout of the room is good, it has a bathroom right off the bedroom, and so it's convenient. It's like an apartment, he has a full kitchen, a living room, a bathroom, a bedroom, and a patio. They had exercise in the morning and sometimes card games that the people organize themselves. It's a very nice-looking place, but there's a lot missing. They have a pool, but so far, I haven't seen anybody using the pool, and they're not taking advantage of the things they have there. The food is pretty decent, they have a pretty good variety, like salads, soups, and desserts, so it's a well-rounded meal. One of the nicest things is they have choices, and they have four or five things you could choose every night. One of the big problems we had was the air conditioner was not working correctly. I complained from the first day, and every time I went, it was warm, it was 85 degrees or higher, and it took five weeks before they decided that maybe I was right. The director was not very nice and insisted it was my fault or my husband's fault that the air conditioner was not working correctly.

The assisted living facility at Brookdale Fort Myers Cypress Lake was nice. The memory care unit was a little concerning. The assisted living rooms were similar to any kind of dormitory living setup, and it's reasonable. It had a small size bedroom, living area and a bathroom. The staff seemed friendly. The dining area seemed nice, and the facility seemed clean. There was a patio, grill and seating areas out there.

My mother inlaw has been in the facility for 4 years. If you ask why we do not move her, it is difficult for a 93 year old to relocate. For her it would be a real set back. Elders do not readjust easily. So you put up with the short falls of the facility. On my last visit her room was unclean. The floors were filthy, they were sticky with dirt along the base boards, the carpets were dirty and window were dirty. The elevators were the same, the public bathrooms the same. In the past we have had issues with the attendants not responding to calls, pretending not to receive the calls, in the evening you can not find an attendant , complaints of bad food, her not getting meds and baths. The price increases every year. Her room rate is now up to $4,348 a month, not including personal services and her services are up too, to a total of $4,931 mo. It increases every year. Because they know how hard it is to move a resident.

Brookdale Fort Myers Cypress Lake was clean. There were active people in it. It was newer, so things were up-to-date. It was a nice facility all around. The apartment was nice and a good size. They had all kinds of activities. They had a crafts room, a game room, a pool, and buses to take people places.

Brookdale Fort Myers Cypress Lake was a very impressive place. The staff member who assisted me was very good, cordial, informed, and welcoming. The menu looked reasonable, but I did not try the food. They have transportation to doctors' appointments and churches.

We visited several local assisted living facilities before settling on this one. The staff is friendly and helpful and treat my dad like family. It is a large facility, however, but my dad needed more of a perceived independent and apartment living situation at this stage of his life. There are plenty of activities, although I wish there was a way to get more of them involved in them more often. The communication is sometimes not the best, but most of our issues have been resolved over time. For now, it is the best solution for him and he seems happy.

We are on a waiting list at Brookdale Fort Myers Cypress Lake. I thought it was very nice and well kept. The people we met there were very nice. We didn’t even tell them that we were coming and they had somebody to show us around. They had a nice swimming pool that was only four or five feet deep, which I thought was wonderful. Also, the thing that really made me want this more than the other ones is that they have a second floor with things to do, like arts and crafts, a place to buy coffee, and pool. It was decorated in bright blues, reds, whites, and yellows such that it made you feel happy. It was really very energizing, and I thought this is the kind of place that I want. It was a little cheaper than the other two that we visited. After June 1st when an apartment comes up, this is where are going. The place where they eat together was set up for the next meal with linen napkins on the table and it looked very nice.

We’ve tentatively picked Brookdale Fort Myers Cypress Lake. They suited us best location-wise. It’s near my son, and they accept veteran’s benefits which we will need to help with the cost. I’ve talked to them several times. In fact, they called me the other day just to check and see how we were.

I visited this facility

This new director is the worst in any business I have ever seen. The lies and untruths she brought with her is a joke. We visit a relative 4 times a month. Filthy, smells, bugs and very unclean rooms just takes the cake. They have poor people with memory care loss answering the phone in the memory care unit. Some times they cry for help when they answer the phone there. We are pulling him out in the next month, or sooner. If you want this to happen, "you would never want this place for your loved ones". They raise the care every 3 months and never do anything to help.your parent. This place should be shut down "period". When you complain to the director, nothing gets done.. Or she is "NEVER THERE". I could not even rate the pathetic place. At nights and holidays this place is under staffed. I been there and at different times too see it happen. Very, very sad.

My brother moved in the first week of December to Brookdale Fort Myers Cypress Lake. He has a nice, little apartment and goes to two separate dining rooms: one at breakfast, and one at dinner and lunch. He sits outside and talks to the people and goes to the Friday afternoon cocktail party. He was honored right after he got there as one of their veterans. He doesn’t do much, but he does a lot more than he did living at home in Texas, so I’m very pleased. The staff is absolutely lovely, and they tell me when I’m there that he’s doing well. He socializes better and seems happier and more alert. We’re all 15 minutes away, which is a big advantage.

Brookdale Fort Myers Cypress Lake was stretched out all over. There were wings that went this way, and wings that went that way. I did not see any people at the memory care. It had big halls. It was in a nice easy access area.

My parents are at Brookdale Cypress Lake, in the assisted living section and the care there is non-existent. The living conditions are so bad that we've had to hire an outside cleaning service for their apartment. The staff has literally told my mother, after she has asked to go to the bathroom, to "go ahead and wet yourself, you're wearing Depends, aren't you?" Change of the Director meant nothing, still the same poor service for seniors. This past week, after visiting them, we saw the cleaning crew across the hall and asked if they would be in to my parent's apartment next. They assured us that they would but they were a no-show. Understand that this is a business but is this how you would like YOUR parents to be treated?

Run for the hills! When you come in they will tell you one thing and do another. They add on fees for what should be inclusive. It's not surprising they are offering a discount right now.. they can't fill their vacancies. I would not recommend!

My mom was at Brookdale Fort Myers Cypress Lake. It’s very sad because I really did like this facility a lot; even the memory care unit. With most places, the memory care units are not good, but I like this one. My mom went an entire month, and they didn’t give her any medicines. She is diabetics, and hypertensive. She has so many issues, but not one called me the entire month that she was in there. For an entire month, they did not give her any medications even though they were provided with the medical kit by myself. Whenever I wanted to see my mom, they avoided me. Her room was very nice. The rooms in the assisted living facility would have been nicer. They were like little apartments.

My mom is in the memory unit of Brookdale Fort Myers Cypress Lake. I am very happy with her being there. The nursing care is wonderful. They are very attentive and accommodating to my mom. I am very comfortable with them. They have different activities going on. Over Christmas, they brought in singers and entertainment for the residents. My mom is in charge of their bingo, and they have exercises. I have eaten there, and the food is good.

I viewed the location of Brookdale Fort Myers-Cypress Lake more favorably than one I saw in Cape Coral. Everything was very pleasant. I saw the dining area where most of the residents were eating during my visit. With price compared to other places, this one was a bit more reasonable.

I really can't say anything was wrong with any facilities that I visited. I thought they were all very nice, and the people were nice. They did a nice job of presenting things, and their recommendations were all good. I really don't have any complaints on any of the facilities, and I thought they were all very nice. Brookdale Fort Myers Cypress Lake was very cute. It was fine, and everything was very nice. From just going there one day I thought it was fine. Everything looks good to me. It looked clean, and the rooms looked clean. The staffs were excellent too. I give them a five star as far as the visit, seeing the room, showing the facilities, and everything else of that nature.

I visited this facility

We were looking for a place for senior housing. I think we called ahead so we had an appointment at Brookdale, and their manager took us up and down the several floors, and we looked into the areas where people gather and that sort of thing, so we did see the whole place. I believe we went into an empty room, and it reminded me of a senior apartment that a friend of mine is in in Massachusetts. We saw an empty room, and it is not going to look homey if there was nothing in it. I would not call it spacious. We went through that one time and had a tour. The manager who took us through was very nice, she showed us the place, and we did look in the dining room. We saw the rooms where they do some of the activities. There was a computer area and a library that might have been separate from the computer area. There was like a hobby room and places like that. I think the area was a good area. I wouldn't be concerned about that area at all. I think it needed a little remodeling, like in the decorating and that kind of thing. It maybe needed a little sprucing up.

I liked Brookdale Fort Myers Cypress a lot. I didn't find anything wrong with it. I asked questions, and I liked what I saw. I liked what I heard. The person that showed me around -- her name was Beth -- was delightful, very friendly, and well informed. She knew the residents' names. When we went around, she spoke to them. It seemed like a very friendly place. The rooms were in fairly good size, and they were nice. I liked the balcony, the kitchen, and the layout. They were nice.

It was an older facility. It wasn't as bright as the other facility we saw. One of the positives though is that they had many sitting areas, like little outdoor areas where the residents could relax and congregate. That was probably the nicest thing. The facility was clean. There were two different styles available for rooms. They had a kitchenette. They were pretty nice. The rooms that we saw overlooked one of the holes on the golf course, so that was very nice. I didn't pay as much attention to their activities, but they did have activities. They would take them out and they would have opportunities to go out for shopping. With regard to the woman who gave us a tour, I felt that she was just doing her job. I just didn't get the sincerity that I got from other places.

It was very positive and welcoming. Everybody was very polite and nice. You could really tell that it was a very friendly and family-oriented environment. Everything was very clean, and from my mom's perspective, she was very comfortable with it. She was very surprised as to the accommodations. My mom was more interested at the therapy portion, the physical therapy that she needed for her day-to-day activities. There were girls who played cards, too. She was very pleased, and she was very happy with the people she met there. If my mom would be going anywhere, this would be the one she would be going into.

It was a multi-building facility, and it was the most impressive that we had seen. The rooms themselves, which were small apartments, were very nice. There was a central dining room, and we had a meal there with some people. This was definitely a place we would consider as opposed to our home, when we would make that kind of decision.

Four story recently updated facility with weight room, billiard and poker room, swimming pool plus lots more. Several terraces and dining rooms. Sundry Shop, Chapel.and library. Scheduled activities daily for the residences. I found it to be a bit overwhelming in my mother's situation with multi floors and elavators. She is 94 years old and would just add to her confusion and dismay.

Memory Care Reviews for Brookdale Fort Myers Cypress Lake

November 11, 2014

By Coral1

I visited this facility

My mother is in here and actually, they have been very good. My mother is in memory care right now, and I think it is a very good facility. It is just far from me, but other than that I will recommend it. She is in a small room. She goes in there on respite, and in order to do that, she has to share a room with another woman. I ask her and she is able to get a private room, but because my dad has just passed away, she kind of wants company there. I will say the rooms are small but adequate. Mom seems to be happy there. It is not as fancy as the one she stayed before, however, I do like the fact that in memory care, they come and take you, and everybody seems to be out and about. If they need memory care, it is an excellent program. My mom has the tendency to sleep during the day and hang-up all night, what they did is they actually lock her out of her room during the day so she will participate and now she's like the queen of bingo. So, she's doing very well there. I really don't want to move her. I really recommend Emeritus. They do art therapy, bingo, and bingo has prices. My mother has a whole arm full of bracelet. They keep them active. They do movies. What I noticed is that I really like is all of the rooms go out to the main area, and in the main area they have the dining room. There is a big living room area where they watch movies and TV, and what I noticed right away is everyone is out of their room and everyone is socializing. What I really like is everyone is chatty, and mom is having a good time there. The way they have it set-up is that everything happens in the middle. It is almost like a square of rooms around the center. They can go outside to a garden area, and no one has to supervise them. It has a garden area, a dining area, and a huge screen TV area with couches. There is a lot of action to attract people. The rooms are small, but in a way it is good because there is no reason to hang in the room. The staff seems very nice there. I love the set up there, I just wish the rooms are a little bigger.
