Memory Care Reviews for Brookdale Columbus

I visited this facility

We visited Brookdale Columbus. I did not like the fact that you pay a base amount for the room you choose and then pay more for any extra medical care that was received, almost like a la carte in a restaurant. I also didn't like that residents in an assisted living home had to be up and at breakfast at about 8:00 a.m. These are quite elderly people who might not want to be up at 8:00 a.m. We did like its location, and the staff was fine, but that was all. It's very expensive, too.

Brookdale Columbus is nice and just what we were looking for. My aunt has been there for less than a month, and so far, everything has been good. They make residents participate in the activities to be more active, which is what I liked about this place.

I loved Brookdale Columbus. It was a wonderful, very clean facility that they were fixing and remodelling. They have a dog that stays there all of the time. The rooms were really nice. It is the cheapest among all of the facilities I have visited.

Brookdale was nice, and so was the staff. There’s lots of places for my daddy to go walk around as he likes to walk. There were two places in the room, and my daddy’s personality he could not have somebody in the room as when he woke up. If somebody is in his space, he is going to push him. It was clean, the people were very nice, and they call back to check on me. I saw a room that somebody lived in, and it was clean.

My friend is here. The facility is not extremely small, but it's not so large that the caregivers do not know everybody in the facility. They are very caring and they make sure everybody is up and fed. Activities are always going on. Holidays are all acknowledged. They also include the caregivers and family members to come in and spend time, having dinner with the resident – just a very caring facility. Their rooms are very nice and spacious. They are always kept neat and clean. Their food is excellent. We have eaten there on several occasions with my friend and all the residents in their just love the food. They eat everything on their plate. They have a good chef.
