Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Shreveport

I visited this facility

Brookdale Shreveport is very nice. The person basically pre-qualified us before taking us out on the tour. When I told her that my dad was someone that would wander, she told me that it wouldn’t work at their facility because they are not a lockdown and also they’re on a busy road. I appreciated that because she didn’t let me go through the whole process, and then tell me it wasn’t going to work. They seemed very knowledgeable, and it looked like a very nice place. It would have been perfect if it had been a lockdown facility. They had bingo, games, and crafts. There’s just a lot of different stuff going on.

My dad transferred to Brookdale after his hospitalization. He really likes the structure, the people, and the food. He seems happy there.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

My mom has lived in Brookdale before, but it was by another name. It was great when she was in assisted living, but when she was moved to the memory care, it was depressing. I think the quality of care was not what we wanted her to have. It was just not what we wanted it to be.

I stopped by Brookdale to look for placement for my mom. When I walked through the front door I was instantly greeted with smiles and everyone was very nice. The building is clean, spacious and big dining room. I hope my mother likes the room. If you are in the same boat as me, go look at Brookdale Shreveport. They will be very helpful.
