Assisted Living Reviews for Traditions at Brookside

April 15, 2019

By Ina

I visited this facility

I think what was really impressive was Traditions at Brookside. It was new, only 2 years old, and the assisted living houses were nice. We saw a theater, dining area, and they looked very good. However, they did not take Medicaid.

Provider Response

We are happy you were so impressed by our community. Our residents create so many wonderful memories in our beautiful common areas. Often senior housing is more affordable than many think. It is our job to be your trusted support as you explore financial options available to you and your family.

Staff is caring and friendly. The facility is less than a year old and is absolutely beautiful! There is a nice variety of activities offered from arts and crafts to guest speakers to movies and musical entertainment, to community trips.

Provider Response

Thank you Marty for your review! We take great pride in our community and staff. The residents are definitely having fun!

The staff at Brookside has worked hard to be as helpful as possible to my mother. They have been wonderful. The residents all seem very satisfied and well taken care of by the staff. Relocating a loved one is always challenging but the staff at Brookside has done a amazing job at assisting and accommodating our situation. The facility is beautifully laid out and they are always bringing in outside organizations to entertain and interact with the residents. I could not be happier with having my mother at Traditions of Brookside.

Provider Response

Thank you so much for your comments! We strive every day to provide a great living environment for our seniors! We are so glad your Mother is happy at Traditions at Brookside!"

Food staff seem untrained in serving and food selection doesn't reflect foods older persons are used to. Need more home cooking style. Have had mess ups on medicine reordering and dispensing of dosages. Does not make one feel secure.

Overall staff is friendly, and facility is very nice. Very pleased with all of the activities that are offered, as our mother is very active. The only negative feedback is that we were surprised to hear the monthly rates were going to increase when my mother had only been living there for six months.

The only complaint that I possibly have is that Mom sometimes, esp on weekends, has trouble getting Imodium on a timely basis. She says it sometimes takes an hour and a half. Otherwise, this is a beautiful facility with wonderful friendly and helpful staff. The food is very good and mom overall is very happy.

On 3 Feb 2017, two Traditions@Brookside (T@B) employees, including a supervisor, assessed my mother at another facility (MM). They were aware she was eating pureed food. MM prepared and Dr. signed a detailed 3-page Order Summary Report (Doc 1) that included “DIET: PUREE diet” on the top half of page 1. T@B accepted Mother and gave me forms to be filled out by MM to support a Mar 6 transfer. MM filled out and Dr. signed T@B’s forms (Doc 2) and also updated Doc 1 (Doc 3). Doc 2 had a line “__ Resident choice from regular diet menu”. MM did not make a check mark on this line, indicating she was not eating from the “regular diet menu”. Doc 3 included “DIET: PUREE diet” on the top half of page 1. T@B changed the transfer date to Mar 13, then Mar 20, then “hopefully in Mar”, then “in a week or so” and finally Apr 10. By then, Docs 2 and 3 had expired and were redone (Docs 4 and 5). The Doc 2 line quoted above was again not marked in Doc 4. “DIET: PUREE diet” was included again in Doc 5. Starting June 2014, my brother drove 1000 miles one-way and I drove 1100 miles one-way at different times each month to visit our mother. During T@B’s delays, by brother delayed his visit so we could both support the transfer, causing neither one of us to visit for about 3 weeks. He made a visit, drove home and then returned a week later to support the transfer. With each delay, I changed the rental-truck reservation needed to move furniture. While moving items into her room at 10 am on Apr 10 in preparation for her transfer at 1 pm, the supervisor informed us our mother was being rejected because she was only eating pureed food. The supervisor knew that on Feb 3. She claimed MM told her they could transfer my mother without stating she was eating pureed food. MM denied saying that. Why would an MM employee alter existing documents that would place the therapist and Dr. at risk when the therapist had not and was not planning to perform an assessment to determine if my mother could eat food processed “mechanical soft” or not processed at all (regular)? Because T@B does not accept residents eating pureed food, they should have inquired before doing the assessment on Feb 3. I had to go through the entire procedure again to find a new care facility. Mother was transferred on May 8. On Apr 10, T@B told me my $1000 deposit would be returned. I called on May 15 and the check had not been printed. I received it on May 19.

I visited this facility

We are going to be moving my parents into Traditions at Brookside. It is nice because it is brand new. When I first visited, it was under construction, but now it is finished and really nice. They have a workout area and a movie theater. You don’t have to sit down at a certain time and eat; you can go and get what you want whenever you want in the dining room. That is something that my dad really likes because where he is now, you have to eat lunch from 11 to 1. They have a courtyard in the center. We worked with Kara, who was very nice, very helpful, and showed us the different apartments that they had.
