I visited this facility

Brigham House was a pretty good place. It was old. I did see one of the rooms, which was new. They've done the rooms over and it was sizable enough. It has a very bright dining room and it's got floor-to-ceiling windows. I think that the people that are there are well taken care of. It just didn't appeal to my friend. It was just too old of a place for him. It was a little pricey. There's a $7,000 activity buy-in fee.

My father has been in Brigham House for about a week now. It's just perfect, and they are incredibly helpful. I was looking for an economical alternative in Massachusetts, and Brigham House accepts assistance on some of their residents, which some places don't. It's very clean. They've had no COVID outbreaks, and the staff seems very professional and fabulous. I looked at their Facebook page and it had a lot of positive pictures and positive comments on it, and it's only a mile from where I live. His room is a studio, and it's relatively small. It's 440 square feet, but it's laid out nicely. He has a small kitchenette and they allow their residents to have a cook service, which is fine. He's 98 and he really shouldn't be cooking for himself anyway. The bathroom is very nicely sized and he can get his walker in it very easily. It has a shower stall and they're assisting him with bathing as well. It's an old school and they had it rehabilitated. His room has very large windows, so it's very bright and sunny, which is nice. It's incredibly clean, and it really was a good fit. He'll be getting all of his meals, and they'll change his sheets and wash his towels weekly, which is a big help. At this point in time, he doesn't need help with his medications, but that's available, and I think that's gonna be coming down the road. The food is very good, and they have quite a few activities there. My father is new, so he hasn't been able to participate yet because he's been in quarantine for the first few days there, but they do memory games, bingo, and some movement classes for people. They have a nice variety of activities, and they sponsor movies in the common rooms in the evenings.

I visited this facility

Brigham House seemed very nice and very appealing. I was looking for a short-term stay for a month or so, but they required a longer term, so it didn't fit with what I was looking for. I would've picked it. The dining area was beautiful and looked like a 5-star restaurant. They had a calendar full of things to do. It was an older school converted to an assisted living, and it's about 110 to 120 years old.

Brigham House is in a residential area, which is two blocks from my mother's house. We went in, and we enjoyed everything. We talked to the people living there, and they seemed to really like the place. There's a nice big park there, and we can wheel her out. People can come, visit, and walk through the park. The school is also right here, so you feel like there are people around. She's happy there. They put on little shows every now and then. They have people come in with music, and they have animals come and visit. They have bingo nights and a little bit of everything, which keeps her busy. My brothers have positive things to say about it and so does my mother.
