Memory Care Reviews for Brookdale Grand Blanc

I had my dad at Clare Bridge of Grand Blanc. It's a memory care facility so it’s a locked unit and it’s the right fit for my dad because he has memory problems. The staff are very compassionate and they understand the residents. They kind of develop some type of a relationship with all of the elderly people and they know how to handle them. They do have enough activities so my dad does not sit in his room all the time. He doesn’t have a television in his room and that is good for him. I am very happy that my dad is there.

Mom is in Clare Bridge. It is really nice. It has a more personable approach. It is like walking up in a little village. There are three different areas inside and there is central area. The individual rooms are very nice. What really impresses me is that they have a snack area that is open twenty-four hours a day and it is free with their board. So, when they get hungry during the night or in between meals, they can go in and have a snack. They have activities scheduled 24/7. If they want to take yoga class at 2:30 in the morning, they can.

I was very impressed with Clare Bridge. I think watching some of the people who were in there enjoying themselves as best they can under that environment were probably due to the caring of the staff. The only thing is that the cost per month would take everything that I have.

I am more disgusted with them every time I go to visit my grandma. Her faucet had been leaking and soap dispenser had been broke for months. Every time we complain they say they are replacing all of them and still nothing has been done. Her room is disgusting. Seems the carpet is never vacuumed and toilet is never cleaned! No matter how much we complaint to them nothing seems to happen! I will be contacting corporate tomorrow! With the amount we pay every month there is ABSOLUTELY no excuse for this!!!

This is also a Dementia facility situated in a very nice property. It's very serene, has a pretty porch that leads you to the outside and a patio where residents could sit down. The rooms occupy a single bed with a bathroom. But, they have other rooms where it was set up for residents to gather together. Other rooms were for watching TV, for crafts and other activities. The staff seemed really nice. I didn't observe any entertainment but I think they have a couple of things for their residents usually done after dinner. I think my father will like this place. My only complaint about this facility and also the reason why I didn't choose this is the location. It's a little too remote; it's not in town so no shopping malls or other establishments nearby. Other than that, everything is nice in here.

Clare Bridge of Grand Blanc is a wonderful facility for seniors and dementia care residents. My grandpa became a resident here 2 years ago. It's located in Holly and right at the border of Grand Blanc, which is convenient because I am from Fenton, so I can easily come visit him every weekend. This facility has a large lobby with lots of friendly people. I feel safe having my grandpa as a resident, I can trust them because they have the tools and training needed. I haven't had a problem with these yet, and my grandpa has no complaints, but only good reviews.
