Assisted Living Reviews for Bradford Place

I visited this facility

I think Bradford Place was the one I really did not like. I would never send any of my family there. There were a couple of things that surprised me about it. One was that all the other places had somebody to greet me, meet me, and talk to me separately. Bradford Place only had a person who seemed to be just a caretaker, and there wasn't a lot of higher level organization. I just had a bad feeling about it that I just wanted to get out of it as quickly as possible. I didn't have an issue with its cleanliness. It was just more of the overall atmosphere and the quality of the rooms and the furniture. Everything just seemed very, very basic. The other thing was the lady that I talked to wasn't listening. I kept telling her that I needed to go over to the bathroom, and she kept saying, "Go stand over there." She wasn't even listening to me. They need a big improvement on how they interact, greet, and introduce people.

The rooms are pretty nice. They have a pretty good staff. They are there to assist you. Most of the residents love to play Bingo. It is a good time they play different kinds of games all in all it is a pretty nice place to live. And it does Not smell like a nursing home. A deacon comes every Tuesday for a Catholic Mass. I think that is pretty amazing. 👍

The rooms at Bradford Place were nice, but my friend needed more care than they could give. The dining area was nice. They had individual tables set up for little groups to sit in. The facility was well lit and looked comfortable.

My mom moved into Bradford Place. It's been almost two months, and she seems to love it there. They're very good with her. Her room is very clean, comfortable, and they come in very often. They play volleyball, Bingo, and different people come in and play the piano, guitar, or sing. They had a Halloween party with the daycare kids on Tuesday. They've got something going on every day. She loves the food. I think they're terribly expensive, but they're the cheapest of all, and they have the best facility.

Bradford Place was terrible. The rooms were very small and confined. The staff was OK, but the place smelled like a nursing home. It was a like a nursing home with having their own private rooms. I didn't see anybody walking. It was all people confined in wheelchairs. Also you have to press a code to get out of the building, but they said you do not have to give the residents the code, so they could not come and go as they pleased. They have a walk-through dining room. It was very small and not inviting.

Bradford Place was OK, but it wouldn’t be my choice. The rooms are fine but kind of drab. There weren't pictures on the walls, so it wasn't very inviting. They didn't have many activities. They had a game room, but that was only when they wanted to go in there. The dining area was very nice and inviting.

Bradford Place is good so far. The people are friendly, and the staff seems good; my father likes them. Rooms are small but good and adequate for him.

About Bradford Place

Bradford Place is a cozy and affordable independent and assisted living community located in the heart of Swansea, Illinois. Our facility has been a proud member of the Swansea community since 1999. In that length of time, Bradford Place has become a home to many residents with our staff of caregivers who are more than willing to give help when needed. Here, we are all part of one great family making the place even more welcoming.

Bradford Place is a safe and secure Independent and Assisted Living facility that features a separate Memory Care Unit that specializes in the care of individuals with memory impairment, Dementia and Alzheimer’s. We see to it that the resident’s loved ones are assured of the care, safety and assistance that our facility is capable with. Even though some of our residents prefer to keep a certain degree of independence, our caregivers are ready to assist them with tasks that are difficult to do alone. As much as possible, we will promote the full mobility and physical function of our residents while maintaining stand-by support round the clock.

The Memory Support Unit at Bradford Place is a separate and secure unit that features 8 comfortable studio apartments, each with a large bedroom and private bath. This specialized care unit is specifically dedicated to individuals with memory impairment, such as dementia and Alzheimer’s. Our staff members are specifically trained in these areas and can assist each individual to complete every day task such as grooming, medication management, dining and bathing, all of which are provided 24 hours a day on an as needed basis. Whether an individual is in the early stages of memory impairment or needs a higher level of dementia care, our staff understands the changing symptoms of memory loss and the impact these can have.

Bradford Place is pet friendly as well. Furry and feathered companions are welcome to stay with their pet owners. In addition to this, we offer a full range of services and amenities for our residents which include daily housekeeping, meals, laundry service, activities and much more.
