Independent Living Reviews for Bellbrook

I visited this facility

It's a condo that we bought but we haven't moved in yet because we have to paint and get new carpeting. It's a senior citizen community. You can go to the main building. We didn't want a small apartment because we could still take care of ourselves but we wanted a place that we would feel at home with other people our age. In this place you have to be 62 to buy a condo. They have the big building that you can have assisted living and then you go on to nursing home in the tall building right there. There are 35 condos on the premises and there are 12 with basements and you have to put your name in and wait for one to become vacant so we did and we signed the papers last week or so. They have many condos there without basements but both are easier to get into. I've talked to some of the people there and they've been there since it began 25 years ago and they just go in and they don't go out until they die or something. The ones without a basement are much more readily available. There's a restaurant there that's open to the public but it closes at six o'clock and anybody can go there. We've gone there a couple of times and it's very nice. The waiters and waitresses are quite very friendly and very helpful. A lot of the people there are in wheelchairs or walkers and they help them out quite a bit. The food is very good. It depends on what you like but they have hamburgers and mori salad and the prices are very reasonable. You're very limited in where you can park, it's mostly for guests. Your pets are very limited. You can only have certain-sized dogs or cats. They have exercise classes, yoga and computer classes. The staff is very nice, very helpful. Nothing really compares to Bellbrook for me.

My mom is in Sanctuary at Bellbrook. It is a very good facility. The staff is wonderful. My mom's room is really nice and painted well. The carpet is clean. If there is a stain in the carpet all you need is to tell the cleaning person and they will spot clean it and if it doesn't come out, then they will come in and steam the carpet. We are very happy and I will highly recommend them to anybody.

I visited this facility

Sanctuary at Bellbrooke in Rochester Hills, MI is wonderful. I would recommend it to adults looking for private apartments, assisted living or skilled nursing. I would also highly recommend this facility for family members looking for a top notch facility for a loved one. When I was there in 2010, I noticed that the nurses were very attentive and involved in the care of their patients. The Director of Social Services was always available to meet with the residents and address any concerns. All staff I encountered, from Director of nursing to maintenance staff, were all experienced, always willing to lend a hand and had compassion. Out of five stars, I would rank the grounds a five, the common areas a five, the residents' rooms a four, the staff a five and the quality of care a five. The last time I was there, the facility was about to undergo major renovations to give the skilled nursing facility a "hotel feel". I saw the plans and it looked like it the renovations would be superb. Overall, I'd give Sanctuary at Bellbrooke a rating of 5 stars because the whole facility goes above and beyond to make the residents feel that the facility is "home".

My friends grandfather has his own living area/apartment. It was spacious and the balcony saw out to the back of area where there was trees and garden. He had has his own kitchen and bathroom and was allowed to leave the facility with family or friend. Enjoyed the company of many friends at the facility and treated very good from my experience. I would recommend it highly to anyone that is looking in the area of Rochester Hills Michigan.
