Memory Care Reviews for Brookdale Bay City

I am a friend or relative of a resident

I like Brookdale Bay City (Formerly Clare Bridge of Bay City) a lot. The facility was absolutely beautiful. They had a cook, and the meals were topnotch. They bake cookies and muffins. They have the residents participate in all kinds of different little activities from matching socks together to separating the silverware, just memory things. They encourage them to come out of their rooms. My uncle has not come out of the room at either one of the other facilities, but he actually was coming out of his room and eating in the dining room here. They have a beautician come in once a week, and he let her shave him and cut his hair whereas at the other two facilities, he did not. The food was great, and they let me eat there for free. They had carpeting in the rooms, and you can decorate them anyway you want. You can also bring your own furniture in. He had a private bathroom, but it did not have a shower in it. They took him down to another shower area. They had all the handicapped equipments and lift chairs in this other place, but he had his own commode and his own sink. It's an a la carte with a private pay facility. I had to bring his own depends, adult washcloths, and toiletries. They had bingo and a sitting TV place where they had a popcorn machine. They could also have coffee, tea, fruits, and snacks anytime they want to. They had a real big nice front porch, and they would take the residents out there. They had an area in the back that was closed in. They could go out there and sit, and they had a little flower garden back there. The staff was fantastic, just the nicest caring people. I brought his dog up there all the time, all the residents just loved his little dog, and you could also keep your pets there. I would definitely recommend them.

I visited this facility

Clare Bridge of Bay City looked very nice and it was almost home-like. The rooms were like a small apartment and like a really luxurious hotel room. The staff were pleasant and the residents appeared happy, nice-looking and friendly. I saw one lady had her dog and that impressed me. I did not see anything that would set off alarm bells. It was clean and one of the nicest facility I saw.
