Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Grand Blanc

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

My mom is in Brookdale Grand Blanc. It's a great operation, very professional, seems to be a very caring unit, and that got our attention. They met the standard that we were looking for. The staff is very caring, very professional, and very knowledgeable of the needs of the elderly. The food is prepared deliciously. I would love to eat there every evening. The facility is impeccable, very clean, very organized, and they make seasonal changes as far as flowers and decorations go. I am very pleased with the facility. There's quite a few activities. I am not sure which ones, but my mom seems to be very happy with the variety of activities there. The value for the money is very reasonable compared to others.

We like Brookdale Grand Blanc very well, it's our second choice. It was set up in a town hall so it's very large. But every area had its own little town hall, own little dining area, own little community area so you won't get lost. That's the thing I like because my mother's memory is not very good and I was afraid that if she's one of 200 residents, she'd get lost in all of that. The lady who gave us the tour was fabulous, she was very good. She was keeping on top of things and if we needed something she'd answer our needs. I like the setup very much, it was very nice. It wasn't new but it was very clean and well-taken care of. We just walked in and the staff gave us the tour and she was very accommodating, she did a very good job.

We toured Brookdale Grand Blanc. It was very impressive, the staff was very friendly, but the the office girl that was going to do our tour was busy, so the chef took us on tour and explained the facility to us. It was private rooms only, not apartment style, and so it would have been a big adjustment for my mother-in-law. Everything was all in one room, and they had a maintenance fee of like $2,500 upfront which was non-refundable, and that was quite a bit to come up with to move into the facility. They had a gentleman playing music when I was there, they have an indoor bird cage which is glassed in with birds in there, and each floor has a dining room, but there are several little dining rooms on those floor. It was not like they eat together in a big dining room, so it's almost secluded. They offer a diabetic meal, but that was for an additional cost.

My mom has been in three communities and she said that Brookdale Grand Blanc has been the best by far, she really liked it there. They have good food and the staff is very caring. They always respond quickly when she has to use her emergency pendant. It's just an all-around good atmosphere. Her room is always kept clean, and they make her bed every morning. They have Bingo, puzzles, movie time, they have live entertainment, and music that comes in. She's been real pleased with all of it. They opened up trick-or-treating to the community, they gave all the residents candy, and let them sit outside the door to give candy to kids that pass through.

My aunt is in Brookdale. The staff has been excellent when I am there. The room is excellent compared to what I have seen so far. It was very nice and comfortable. The food is very good. They have a lot of activities, like bingo and games.

From what I’ve seen in all of the other places, I like Brookdale Grand Blanc best. I like the way it’s run, the cleanliness, the staff, and everything about it. The room is very nice, and there’s plenty of room for my mother. They go on outings, and they have Bingo and entertainment that they bring in every week; just something every day.

My mother has been in Brookdale Grand Blanc since April and is doing well. It's a very nice community, and they are kind to my mom. She needs a lot of care, and they do pretty well taking care of her considering they're an assisted living, not a skilled nursing home. The rooms are very nice. They keep them very clean, and they're very good about getting her laundry done and getting it back to her. The food is fine. Yesterday, they grilled hamburgers and hotdogs outside for Labor Day. They had coleslaw and a nice dessert. She's fine with the food. I've eaten there too, and I'm also fine with it. It's very pretty, and I like that there's a front porch with beautiful white rocking chairs on it. The people go out there and enjoy the outdoors. It has a little aviary that my mother just loves. They have bingo, a puzzle room, people coming in to do church services, etc., and they're having an ice cream social this Thursday. They do a nice job with the recreation for the people who want to participate.

Mom moved in, and she is happy where she is. Everything is very nice, and the staff is very accommodating and pleasant. She has a 1-bedroom with a bathroom, it’s large enough for her, and she likes it. She gets everything in there that she needs, and there are lots of lights. The food is not bad, but it’s not really good. They are exercising every morning, and there are quite a few groups that come in and entertain them. They have play groups, coloring, and sing-a-longs, and they do a lot of activities within the home. She has made quite a few friends, and she is happy there. She really likes the staff, the kitchen staff, and the chef.

We visited here. It was very good and close to the place where dad lives now so it was a good comfort level for him. He especially liked the nurse. I thought it was a fine visit.

I visited here a couple of weeks ago and the place is very nice. They serve a good meal and they are very hospitable. They showed us the rooms. Everything worked out fine except we aren’t ready for them yet.

It seemed adequate and nice. It was fairly new and clean. They had activities found in the other facilities. They had private rooms and no shared rooms, which was just not going to work for my wife.
