Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Grand Blanc

My mother has been in Brookdale Grand Blanc (Formerly Wynwood of 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 to Wynwood of Grand Blanc, 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 Wynwood. 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 really liked the people that we talked to when we went to the Wynwood of Grand Blanc. They acted like they cared about my mom versus just how much we were going to have to pay. The food is okay, but they kind of tend to have the same things over and over. She is comfortable in her room there. They have a lot of activities, but she hasn't really participated much. I know they have cards, Bingo, concerts, and picnics. I think they need to improve on their bathroom times, especially how long it takes to get someone to help her go to the bathroom. We've talked to the nurse about it and she is working on it.

We have my mother in Wynwood of Grand Blanc. It was our choice because it's very close to where my parents' condo is and the facility is very nice. Also the director was just a sweetheart and really helped us out with a lot of things. The facility is very clean. They're competitively priced. The staff is very nice, very friendly and very helpful. Food is very good. For activities, Mother is not able to participate in a lot of their activities at this point but they do have many. They do have field trips and those kinds of things. Overall, it's just a nice place.

I visited Wynwood of Grand Blanc 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.

Wynwood of Grand Blanc 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.

Wynwood is a real nice place, but the price was out of sight for my Mom. They have different sections, so if you're mobile, you're in one facility and if you're hospice type, you're in another. They're separated and are in different parts of the building. People who are handicapped and have to use walkers are in another part. The staff was awesome. The place is excellent.

I visited this facility

I've had to visit Wynwood of Grand Blanc in the past because my family had a close friend who was staying there. I had never met this friend before, but we stopped once to say hello on our way up north. I didn't know this was an assisted living facility at the time until we got inside. It looked like an apartment complex and it didn't have that air about that said these people are sick or need help. It was simply a nice place and equally as comfortable on the inside. The interior was clean and our family friend seemed content to be staying at Wynwood. We didn't interact with any staff, but I had the feeling that the residents were well taken care of. I only visited for a little over an hour, but on the cursory glance that I had, I was impressed how relaxed the environment seemed. I can't give it a perfect rating because I didn't see any of the staff and how they worked, but just based on what I saw, I would recommend this home.

Wynwood of Grand Blanc is a place worth looking into if you have a loved one that needs decent assisted living. My great aunt became a member here in Sept of 2011 and she has yet to complain about it. They are kind, respectful, and knowledgeable people with a beautiful complex. They provide housing, care and services in a comfortable environment with great amenities. I trust them to care for her with lots of love. I feel like she's safe here at Wynwood of Grand Blanc. My great aunt really enjoys watching TV with her new friends and chat about the good old days. The other residents are nice and welcoming. It shouldn't be a problem making a friend or two. I visit my great aunt every weekend and I love seeing her happy here. This is the place she wants to spend her final days. I recommend checking Wynwood of Grand Blanc out, it's located on 5080 Baldwin Rd. in Holly.
