Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Hays

December 06, 2014

By Sterling House

I am a friend or relative of resident

My dad has been at Sterling House for about 3 years. He had choices of where to go for assisted living, and he chose Sterling House. The staff is considerate and professional - and most of all, they care. Whether it is taking the time for a visit or keeping vigilance of his health needs. I know that my dad is safe and receives care to a standard that meets my expectations and his. I can contact any of the staff at any time and they make me feel that my dad is their priority - even though there are 30 some residents. I am greatful that Sterling House is available for my dad, and me!

I visited this facility

I would oftentimes visit this assisted living facility to visit my great aunt when she was living here. It was very clean and tidy. The grounds were also kept up and looked very appealing at all times. The floor plans were also spacious and nice and obviously built with elderly people in mind - almost to a fault at times however as they look a bit awkwardly spacious. The staff was very nice and attentive, yet they were not always welcoming to visitors and guests. They were never explicitly rude; however, one woman in particular always seemed like she was miserable there and spoke to the residents and visitors with little respect. I feel like an assisted living facility needs employees that are extremely happy to be working with people and are able to maintain that image even when they are not happy to be at work. They also need to appreciate their work and consider that they are working with the elderly that regardless if they need assisted living or not, they still deserve the utmost respect. My aunt enjoyed living here; however, the staff seemed to be comfortable and did not seem to go above and beyond expectations.
