Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Saginaw

I visited this facility

The staff and everything else at Sterling House of Saginaw was fine. It was just a smaller community, and it wasn't what we were looking for. The people from the staff that we talked to seemed fine.

I visited this facility

Sterling House didn't look as clean as the other facility I visited. It was also very quiet. No residents were outside their rooms. We also didn't see any staff. We walked in, looked around and never saw any staff person.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

When mom was in Sterling House, I thought the care was pretty good, but she was not doing very well. She got pneumonia a couple of times while she was there. They didn't have quite as many activities, but they had a dance and picnics.

I visited this facility

I cant say one bad thing about this facility. It was clean and that staff there, in my opinion was very friendly and kind to the residents there. There was all kinds of activities happening and I do not believe anyone felt "out of place."
