Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Chambrel Pinecastle

We moved our mother from Brookdale Chambrel Pinecastle because the price was so high. They will say $7,000 the first year then $12,000 the second year. It's a fine community, but an expensive community. The people were nice there and mom had some good friends there. The fact that they had to administer her medication, they had her in assisted living, and it costs several hundred dollars just for that, which to me is a little ridiculous. They bring meals to her. The staff members are nice people, but it's like any place else. The surroundings seem to be fine to me. Every year the cost goes up and it goes up a couple hundred bucks sometimes. The facility seemed nice enough.

My friend is at Brookdale Chambrel Pinecastle. We do lots of emails and phone calls, and they're very responsive. They give out newsletters. Her room is very nice and nice sized. The staff is fantastic, most friendly, and absolutely amazing. They updated the room because they rushed to get it ready for her, so the room was fixed the following day. They provided furniture, which is super nice, and saved money for us. The location is good. It's a nice area. They don't provide furniture to everybody, but they did it for us, and I thought that was very nice. They go out of their way to be attentive. At that time, they were serving food in the rooms, but now they're doing it in their dining room. It's terribly reasonable. The value for the money is amazing.

My sister moved into independent living at Brookdale Chambrel Pinecastle. I think it's wonderful and fun. They're always doing something and there's always something going on that you can choose to participate in or not participate in. Overall, it's an amazing staff. My sister's room is fine. Some days my sister really likes the food and some days she doesn't like it so much, but that's life. The dining room is setup like a restaurant. They have a library, a salon, and buses that take them wherever they need to go. They're very accommodating. Everybody I have encountered has been gracious and nice. I think it's a little pricey, but it's probably in line with the other places.

They were very friendly and attentive at Brookdale Pinecastle. Their food was good. Jill, the guide, introduced me to Ed who was the director, which was nice because it was like a family situation. The place was very clean and organized, they had a calendar of events, and the pricing is reasonable.

Brookdale Pinecastle was very nice and clean. The people were very friendly. We had lunch there, and the food was good. A couple who sat with us had raving reviews about the place. They had a lot of benefits. It was a very nice place fairly close to our church. We have looked at many and this one was definitely very affordable and one that we could work with.

Brookdale was a fine, lovely facility. They were helpful and wonderful. It was an older facility, but it was very nice and very well kept. They were fresh, clean, and didn't have an odor at all. It seemed to be a very busy place that had lots of activities. They had menus, and the food looked very good with good variety. I would recommend Brookdale.

We already put my father in Brookdale Pinecastle. They offer 3 meals a day, and it is a restaurant style where they bring it to the table to you. They have an in-house doctor that comes at certain days of the week to see people that need to be seen, instead of having to travel to a doctor. They have a lot of different activities, but he doesn’t participate in a lot of them; some of them he does. It is close to where I live, so it is easy for me to get to him. They are good, but there are always little quirks about things. They also have free transportation. What I also like about this Brookdale is that he gets an apartment style to live, and right now he is living independently. But as he needs assistance, they come to him in his room. It is nice and clean, and the staff seems to be good. They close the front doors at 8 o’clock, but there are people on-staff 24 hours a day. I would probably recommend it. It seems to be a pretty good place.

We had a very positive experience and tour at Brookdale Pinecastle. The host was terrific; I couldn’t say anything negative about the people who showed us around. They did a very good job. The rooms seemed adequate. The price seemed competitive with appealing amenities included. We were very impressed with them. There seemed to be activities for the residents. However, it was a little bit too large for my father.

I’ve toured Brookdale Pinecastle. They have a lot of different activities, so it was very active. The arrangement of the little apartment that they showed us was OK. It was well lit, clean, and comfortable, but the closet was in a weird place. The staff was friendly and accommodating.

Brookdale Pinecastle (formerly Chambrel at Pinecastle) has the largest facility and their prices are reasonable compared to the others. It's very nice, very pleasant, and clean. The staff is very good. My wife and I have eaten there a couple of times with my parents. The food is excellent, but the servers are slow. My dad is on oxygen and in a wheelchair and sometimes has to wait unreasonable amounts of time to be served. My mother participates in a lot of their activities, but my dad can't because of his physical condition. Our overall experience has been extremely good.

We were able to visit Brookdale Pinecastle, and the staff was very helpful. They were also very interactive and caring with the residents. The facility was very clean and very well appointed. The apartments were very nice and spacious. I wasn’t able to taste the food, but the dining room is very nice. It's very clean and very homey. It reminded me of a hotel restaurant. With regards to their activities, they seemed to have quite a bit going on. When we were there, in one room, they had a pastor who was conducting a religious service, and in the other room they had someone who is singing along with the residents. Overall, it was very favorable.

My mother is in Brookdale Pinecastle. It is very nice. My first impression though is that the carpet, paint, and some of the upkeep is a bit dingy. However, the staff is very nice and very helpful.

Brookdale Pinecastle was beautiful facility. It was like the Hilton Hotel. All of their staff was very friendly. They were there a little over a year and I think we knew everyone. It was nice. They had 5-star restaurants and they could come and go as they pleased, but it got to the point where they needed more care than that. We are not at all unhappy, they just needed more care and we needed to get them in the right place. They did a good job.

I liked the condition of the apartments at Chambrel. They’re very bright, very clean, and Chambrel is very good at making modifications for me based on my needs. The one I chose was a one-bedroom apartment, and it was a little bit bigger than what I expected. In addition, it offered a full kitchen which was very useful. I liked all of the social activities that they have. In the area of religious services, they offer a rosary and a mass every week. They also offer bus service to the churches on Sundays and that was attractive to me. They have a Bingo group and a crocheting group which my mother would be interested in. They invited me to lunch, and I had a wonderful fish dinner, it was very good. Mother will like it.

Chambrel at Pinecastle was a nice place. It was very clean and well-maintained. They have senior living, nursing home, and Alzheimer's care, which were good. However, the apartments were small. They had everything we were looking for except for the size of the apartments. Nevertheless, food was very good. The restaurant-style arrangement was very good. Also the staff and the facilities were very good.

I thought Chambrel at Pinecastle was wonderful. I loved the facility. The staff, I can't remember her name, but she was informative and helped tremendously. She understood that her facility might not be the right fit, but she talked to us, showed us the facility, followed up with me, and even when my grandmother was placed in a different facility, she still followed up just to check if my grandmother was adjusting there. I thought the room she showed was just for an individual, I don't think it was for a shared accommodation and it was spacious for an individual person. It had side kitchenette and I thought it even had a balcony. I made you feel like you were in your own apartment, rather than an assisted living facility.

We love it here at Chambrel at Pinecastle. I had made a deposit at the other facility, down on I-441 in The Villages, and we got our money back the minute I came back up here. There was no question, none whatsoever. This is fabulous. We looked at seven different assisted living in the area. I definitely wanted to go to the other facility, but once I came up here and looked in Ocala, there was no turning back. I knew the minute that I walked in here. The highlight here is the square footage of the room. It has very nice windows, and we’re on the second floor. I’ve got 1100 square feet and it’s fabulous. For the same amount of money I was going to pay at the other facility, there I was going to get 564 square feet. I find no problem here. When we have a life alert, they’re here. The staff is very friendly. At least 85 to 95 percent of them are very friendly.

I was recently in town and dropped in for a surprise visit to a dear friend of mine at Chambrel. My friend is very happy with the care she receives from the nurses and aides. Everyone was smiling and the place was very clean! While she was showing me around the building she stopped to talk to a young and introduced him to me as her Doctor. She said he was a new in-house doctor and she was very pleased with his care. I was impressed that such a young doctor was bringing house visits back like it used to be in the old days. I was very happy with everything I saw while visiting my friend. I feel better knowing she is in good hands.

My husband and I live in Chambrel at Pinecastle. We are very happy here. The attendants, all of the aides, and the nurses are very helpful and compassionate The staff is excellent. The apartments are the largest in the area. They all have kitchens with full-sized refrigerator, dishwasher, and stove. No one really cooks, we may heat up some things, not really cook, but we could if we wanted to. The kitchen was a factor to why we chose this facility. The apartment, especially the bedroom, was large enough for our furniture and we could bring our favorite pieces that wouldn't have fit in the other facilities. And, they accept cats, so we were able to bring our kitties and that was really important. The food is so good. It is restaurant style, so you have an extensive choice and it's all very good. The other thing that is nice and a little different is that dining is from 7am to 6:30pm, so you're not restricted on when you eat. We have Bingo every day, computer classes, all kinds of card games, a non-denominational Sunday service, and a lot of community activities where the residents can get together. One of the best qualities about it is that it doesn't seem institutionalized. There's a lot of land, the trees are all mature, and there's a little lake in front with a walking path and park benches around that is used by a lot of people every day.

I love the cleanliness of Chambrel at Pinecastle. The staff are super nice and friendly. It's just upscale and yet it was the cheapest one that we found for my mom. It's really nice and they are remodeling everything. I can't think of one bad thing to say about them. Their room was brand new. It's perfect. They have a lot of activities, but my mother just won't participate in any of them. They have hay rides, they go out to dinner, and to the grocery store. They will take to a doctor or you can use your doctor. Wednesday night, they had a family Christmas party where they invited the families of the people there. The experience has been great.

This place is horrible. I was shown a studio apartment and my mom thinks the rooms were small. The place was depressing. It did not look clean to me. The woman who showed me around was very pushy and condescending. I also found that aside from the price, they also have a whole lot of hidden fees. Everything that you want to add on has a price. I would not recommend anybody to go there.

Chambrel at Pinecastle was a lovely facility. The staff when we visited the place was wonderful. Everything was perfect except for the residents. They were just walking around like a bunch of zombies. They were walking to the lunch room and usually when you come to lunch, you sit with your friends and talk, but they were not talking. They just ate there and that's it. It thought that was very strange. Nobody was doing anything. Their activity room is empty. I don't want to go there.

I choose Chambrel at Pinecastle for my mom because it is more of an apartment rather than a nursing home and I like how the apartment looks. They keep it clean and new looking and the environment is very nice. The food is good. The rooms are nice and spacious enough. The staff is helpful. They have lots of activities available. My mom likes it there and she's satisfied with the care that they are giving her. I guess they can improve on giving more personal care. I would recommend them to others.

Chambrel at Pinecastle was one of my choices but my husband did not like it that much. It did not look like an institution at all. They had a nice room for us if we decided to move in. The entrance was nice with a water pond and they also had a swimming pool.

Chambrel at Pinecastle was privately-owned so they did not accept Medicaid. The staff who showed me around was pleasant and we had a wonderful lunch. I liked it because it was airy and they seemed interested with each one of the residents. They had restaurant-style dining room and it was absolutely pristine and lovely. The rooms were bright and spacious. I would actually consider getting a two bedroom for my mom and me. It was not high-end but it was very well-done. It would be better if they add Medicaid.

I found Chambrel at Pinecastle through for my father. I chose this facility because it wasn't too far and it's within my price range. They have the kind of care that she needed at that time. They have a TV room. The facility with their lobby and all is really nice. People there are very warm and caring.

Every time we (my family) walked in to the facility we were very kindly greeted and they would take all of our information for the security of there patients. The nursing assistants where very caring and gentle which meant a lot to our family. They do a very good job of creating a safe enjoyable environment for our elderly, because of the size of the facility they can walk trails around nice ponds and enjoy having lots of room inside the facility. They have all levels of ALF care and I had a good experience while my great-grandmother was staying in that facility. Furthermore Every facility is going to have its lazy workers which there was definitely a few at this facility but the pros outweigh the cons. I would recommend this facility to someone in the Ocala area that is looking to put a loved one in an ALF...

I thought the staff at this facility were very well educated and mannered. I did feel as if all of the residents were not treated equally and it breaks my heart. As with all ALF's there are those residents who do not receive visits from family or friends and they are the poor individuals who are mistreated and not properly cared for. I feel the facility itself could be kept cleaner. I knows it's Florida, but that does not excuse loose sand and dirt on the floor of the entrance.

While I was there seeing my friend I notice the facility was very clean, everyone was nice and helpful. There seemed to be things to do and a very kind place to visit. The parking lot had spaces unlike other places I have been. I would recommend this place to other people if i was asked. it is very nice to see a place like this as many places have such a bad rap in how they treat the people staying there. The main reason I would recommend this place is how much I saw the attention to the health of each individual person that was staying there, most times people are ignored but not here everyone seems to be a top priority to each and every nurse on duty. My friend that I see there has nothing but great things to say even down to the food that is served even though he has special needs.

We went into several places down there. Chambrel outranked them 10 to 1. The apartment layout, the accessibility to the dining room, everything fit into place for my friend. She's very happy! The staff were very friendly. We've been on a tour before and the last time that we were down there, the lady that took us around knew every client and called them by name. They were not strangers to the people that lived there. It shows that they personally know each resident and that they give them individualized care.

Chambrel at Pinecastle is a lovely place. It's really closer to independent living but they have more assisted living areas. I like its general environment. The people living there tend to be more coherent and active. The staff was friendly and efficient too. The rooms are very nice. They're well furnished, well kept, current, no disrepair and lovely. They have a big dining area and they do 3 meals a day. They have numerous activities like music and card games. There's a bus that takes you out to doctors or grocery stores. But it's just off our price range.

We chose this facility first off because it is clean, it smells good, and it looks nice. They have a pond in the front that has walking trails and benches, so that if residents want to go outside, they can do so. Secondly, the residents there seem compatible with my mother in terms of their mobility and mentality. They also seem to be happy there. Chambrel at Pinecastle feels like a very vibrant, active and busy community. My mother would be able to find things to do and people that would be good friends to her. I don't know all of their activities but they go every week for like a scenic drive or go to malls, Wal-Mart or Target stores. They also bring them to all of their doctor's appointments and to the pharmacy. They have a pool in the back and they have swimming classes that my mom can take advantage of. My mom has probably been there for six weeks now and initially she started out to have one meal a day. However, she is enjoying the company of the folks in the dining room so much that she has signed on to have three meals a day. She also enjoys the food very much. Regarding accommodation, my mom currently has an efficiency apartment on the ground floor. It has a slider to a little patio, which is a nice thing. She also has a very large walk-in closet. I think the nicest thing about Chambrel is that there are different levels of care. So if my mother needs more assistance, she will be able to upgrade to another level of care. They have a doctor that comes in once a week, so she has that consistent medical care available to her. The only problem my mother had was about internet and cable service this facility promised her. I think there's a little bit of misconception about it. That's just a minor thing but my mother was a little bit irritated about that.

My mom used to be in an apartment at Chambrel at Pinecastle and it was very nice. Their physical therapy was top notch. There was a fellow there named Dee and he was the best. He watched out for the residents and if he saw anything that needed attention, he would invite the families' attention so they could make a doctor's appointment. But they should improve on their house doctor for their residents. They had not done any examinations on them. My mother almost died there in April because he was supposed to order antibiotics and he didn't do it. If you had a loved one who was sickly, I don't think that's the place for them.

About Brookdale Chambrel Pinecastle

Brookdale Chambrel Pinecastle provides a full range of choices for today's seniors. Choosing a senior living community represents a lifestyle choice and we understand that our residents are choosing much more than a comfortable living environment to call home. Our Brookdale community delivers Inspired Independent Living, with the promise of Exceptional Experiences Everyday. In choosing this community, our residents have made a conscious lifestyle decision designed to deliver enhanced opportunities for pursuing health and life fulfillment through the exceptional services, amenities and opportunities we offer. And, our residents can rest assured that as their needs change we provide a variety of ancillary services and a Personalized Assisted Living environment that encourages our residents to continue to live as they please while respecting individual preferences.

Our Optimum Life&reg and Celebrations programs provide an all-encompassing way of life that touches the lives of our residents, their families and associates alike. Optimum Life&reg is a journey of self-discovery including services, features and benefits that allow each resident to pursue their peak level of health, wholeness and fulfillment while balancing six key dimensions of personal wellness: emotional, intellectual, physical, social, spiritual and purposeful. As part of Optimum Life&reg we encourage our residents to celebrate life each day. Inspired dining and vibrant lifestyle activities come together in our Celebrations program filling the monthly calendar with themed experiences, special events and group activities that highlight different cultures and cuisines in a common venue of camaraderie.
