Memory Care Reviews for Brookdale Centre Pointe Boulevard

January 23, 2015

I visited this facility

I went to Clare Bridge of Tallahassee, and I liked the fact that the people were all around. You could see a lot of clients there and see people interacting with them. I really liked that it didn't seem to be shut off and out of the way. They were busy, and I liked the way they interacted with the clients. They were having something musical with the clients gathered in the big living area. The others were milling about, but you could see the people were interacting with them. The rooms are immaculate and very nice. Each one has a bath and a shower in it, and that is very nice.

I visited this facility

I had an hour-long tour of Claire Bridge and everything was very nice and clean. It was an attractive facility. The residents seemed comfortable. The food that I tasted there was very good. The rooms were nice. They had good activities. The staff that I had interacted with was very nice too. However, the focus on Claire Bridge was mostly on memory care. My dad needed memory care, but my mom? Not so much. That was why we chose the other place because it focused on both. The price was quite a bit more also. It was about almost 50% more than the place we chose.

I visited this facility

The facility is modern and cares for its occupant with the upmost care. My grandmother loved the company of her fellow neighbors and frequently participated in activities. The facility was always clean every time visited my grandmother. She was able to make many friends with her neighbors and told me that the staff was very professional and caring. The fees are very affordable, they do not nickel and dime us like other assisted living facilities. Even with such low payments Clare Bridge of Tallahassee is able to maintain clean and modern facilities full modern appliances, TVs and other recreational tools used for entertainments. My grandmother has been to other facilities that treat you like a second class citizen, but at Clare Bridge of Tallahassee she is treated like a member of the family. All I can say is thank you to Clare Bridge of Tallahassee for taking care of my grandmother.

Excellent care, caring staff and clean, comfortable, attractive environment and surroundings. Good choice for your loved one with Alzheimers' disease, up to the point where long-term placement in a nursing home is required.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

I had a friend who lived at this facility. I liked Clairebridge because it is neat and tidy. This facility is very large and the roomy. When you walk in to the facility, it feels like a home away from home. It does not smell as though you are walking into a toilet or a medical facility. The staff seems to care about their patients. The medications are given to the patients in a timely manner. The doors are secured with a key-punching locking alarm system to keep patients safe. Those with progressive mental condition, such as Alzheimer's are attended to appropriately. The facility temperature was cozy and comfortable. It was not too hot or not to cold. It also had lots of window to let the sun shine in. The colors within the facility were inviting and uplifting. When you look around it is just the perfect facility for family member and friends.
