Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Tallgrass

I visited this facility

It was fine at Sterling House but it's out of my price range. I was accommodated by the staff; they were very helpful. The facility is well-maintained but it didn't feel homey.

When i first went in to the assistant living home called sterling house of tall grass i noticed how clean it was and not just the facility but also the nurses and other workers.Everyone was amazing help to my great aunt Regina and made her feel more at home then she could have felt in any other assistant living facility.She needs around the clock care and to be reminded of when she has to eat and take her medicine, which they did great at.She is still living at sterling house of Tallgrass and loves it out there and would not change where she lives for anyone. they have bingo nights for her and her friends , which she has made a lot of friends ever since she moved in there.every time i go see her she is happier then the last time that i saw her.They have a lot of activities for everyone there and an amazing staff as well as chefs . When i eat there with her i felt like i was in a five star restaurant. I would recommend this retire home for anyone that feels like they need a home life inside there assistant living conditions. They make sure you feel welcomed and that your care comes first. I think this is pretty much the best retirement center i have ever seen and i went through like twenty of them with my mother trying to find the perfect place for my great aunt.This is the prefect one!

This is a small assissted living facility in the northeast area of Wichita. It is a bit pricey, but if an intimate setting, good food and consistent staff are important, then it is worth the price. I would recommend this facility if a loved one has mild to mid dementia because it is does not have as much of institutional feeling as some. The staff knows everyone and can help to cue or supervise those with memory issues. They have nice opportunities for social activity such as movie and popcorn night, piano entertainment and sing alongs and small dining room setting. Security is good here, although sometimes it takes a while for staff to open the door for visitors. This is a standard facility. There have been some management changes so it is worth doing drop in visits.

We are a fully secured community. All of our doors can only be accessible with a code that is private and secure to associates only. Residents may leave and return to the community as they choose but must be signed out and back in with a loved one or friend. Our community is also constructed in a square format- this helps residents who wander and enjoy walking the halls avoid getting lost or running into a dead end. So in essence if they continue to follow the natural flow of the halls they will always run back into a place where there is assistance.
