Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Northbrook

I visited this facility

Brookdale was lovely, and I liked it. The whole crew is marvelous, they can’t do enough for you, and the apartments were beautiful. Everything about it was great, and the food was good. They have a full kitchen in the apartments. The dining room was beautiful; they have a café and a private dining room. They have wonderful exercises, games, tours, lectures, entertainment, outings, and card rooms. They have doctors and nurses. The help was impressive, it is secure, and they have 200 people there.

I visited this facility

The staff was very nice and wonderful. When I walked in, a woman told me it was a great place. I was not able to eat there, but their dining room was nice. I liked how their different activity rooms were set up. I also like that the cars were park not too far from the building. However, I didn't like set up of the apartments. The bedroom and the bathroom were both very large, but the living room was small.

We found Brookdale Northbrook, but we have not moved in yet. The staff was just wonderful, very accommodating, the living atmosphere is very nice, and laid out very well. They have activities on the main floor, they have speakers, trips, exercise, and art activities. The apartment is very lovely, two-bedroom, and clean. We had a meal in a lovely dining area, and their food was excellent.

Brookdale Northbrook was the nicest of all the places I've visited. It was very clean, but they did not have a gym. The dining area was nice and big.
