While there is an Administrator, they spend most of their time in the Assisted Living Building. They seem to only be present in the Memory Care Unit when there are special events. The activity director is the highlight of the building but he could use more help. There is little to no afternoon and evening supervision of the residents once dinner is over and you are hard pressed to find anyone after 7 PM. If you find a staff member, they are probably on their phone. I don't know how often the rooms are cleaned but my family's members bathroom is usually dirty. The food should be better for the cost but maybe they have had a lot of turnover of kitchen staff.

My mother has moved into Brookdale Troy. There's a very homelike atmosphere, and she feels comfortable there. She has a private room, and she feels at home there. She feels very safe and comfortable, especially in her room. Every weekday, they have morning music, chair exercises, and trivia. I've been with my mother when she has eaten her meal. The food is not gourmet, but it's good. It's good home cooking.

We are in the process of moving Mom into Brookdale Troy. I had been there before and saw my friend's mother there and I thought it was kind of airy and kind of bright looking. I liked what I saw. I went there to see it a couple of times, and it was centrally located. I saw the music thing going on. The layout of the apartment was good. I wish they were a little bit bigger, maybe about two feet bigger, but it is what it is. The bathroom was a good size. We had lunch one day, and it was good. My mom liked it. It was one of her favorite fish. I like the courtyard they have for the memory care area. It was bright. I'm going to bring some of my mom's plants from her home and put them in the courtyard, and I think she'll like that. It's like an atrium. There was seating outside. I've talked to the salespeople and I'm meeting with the nurse tomorrow, but so far everybody that I have met has been helpful. One side is assisted living, and the other side is memory care.

Brookdale Troy is one of my choices but that's a little bit on the pricey side. What I like most about it is the activities and that they are free to roam the very large complex so they wouldn't feel trapped. They had an outdoor facility. I came in during breakfast, and they had organized exercise. One patient had a meltdown while I was there, and I like the way that they handled it. The way that they handled it, it was like, 'Okay, this person's upset, let him be upset.' They did try to calm him down and the person worked it out themselves with a little bit of assistance. There was no arguing, the person was mad, and that's what it was. The staff who toured me was very informative and very nice. They had a gym and a secured courtyard. They had like a baby nursery with dolls in it, and they had a little pool workroom that men could go to, and they pretend that they were working on stuff. They believe that they are. They had this open just-go-for-it-and-live-your-life type feel.

My brother just moved to Brookdale Troy. The staff is very friendly and very accommodating. They have things like a sing-along, where they sing really old songs. They have an indoor space like an atrium, and in the front, there are places you could sit around at these little bistro tables. They have an enclosed patio.

My mom moved into Brookdale Troy 2 weeks ago. She's in memory care. It's nice. it was streamlined, and it was easy. They have a hair salon. They have activities, but she has her own therapy, physical therapy, and speech therapy; that's pretty much what they're concentrating on since it's a memory here.

My relative was at Brookdale Troy. Everything was excellent, from the staff to the people. They were just so accommodating and let us do whatever we needed to to make it comfortable and cheery, and we appreciated that. The food was great and they had a family day. I had no complaints. They painted their nails and they played Bingo.

Brookdale Troy's memory care has the best feeling of normalcy, better than other memory cares I've been to it. It has a nice little courtyard area in the front. The rooms are smaller, but that's OK. Most of the staff is very accommodating, and my dad has adjusted well. The staff seems to be able to handle things well. They have volleyball, different performers coming in, and trips to a local children's hospital. The dining area is OK. Th food seems OK. They had local kids come in during Valentine's Day, which was neat.

Brookdale Troy, of all the places that we have been to so far, appeared to be the best in terms of memory care and having a stimulating environment. The building was built specifically for this kind of care. When you walk in the front door, there's a two-story atrium lobby and you have to go through two doors. They have to ring you into the facility, and as soon as you get in that door, you’re in this very large room with a sitting area and television. It was before dinner, so people were gathered there before they went to the dining room. When the weather is good, the residents can just walk into the atriums anytime. They don’t have to go there with supervision. It was very neat. There is a conference room where you can meet with somebody, and if it’s not being used, a family could have a family gathering there.

My mother-in-law is at Clare Bridge. Am I thrilled? No. But I've talked to other people and the things that do bother me about it are the same no matter where you go, so I don't regret my decision. A recent situation when I went there was that power had gone out for 2 ½ hours, it was getting rather cold in there, and their backup generator was broken, which really bothered me. That was really surprising because they told me that they were going to be doing all this remodeling and so on and so forth, and I haven't seen any beginnings of any remodeling since she moved in. I sat with her at dinner a couple of times, and the food was just horrid. Then, also when she first went in, there was a doctor that oversees the facility, and I don't know if he was not too well on medications, especially psychotic medications, so I ended up not using that physician they had on staff that comes by once every two weeks, and I took her to her primary care physician. She stopped all medications with the exception of the very low dose anti-depression, and she is doing very well. There are 22 people on the plan that she is in, but they are LPNs not RNs, and they only work Monday through Friday to 5pm, so there are no nurses on the staff during the night. I feel that they do not have enough caregivers; I do believe that they are understaffed. The grounds are well-kept, but there is just a lot of little things. For example, it was summertime when she first went in, and they made it sound like they'll be allowed to go outside anytime they wish in an enclosed environment, but that is not the case. They keep those doors closed at all times, so it's a total lockdown, and if I do take her out, it is only because I've been ringing the buzzer numerous times for them to allow me to take her outside to get some fresh air. So that was a disappointment. I was more of the impression that they would make the effort to take someone outside and let them get fresh air. This was the best of all of them that I saw.

The community that we have my mother in is Clare Bridge of Troy. It’s a Brookdale community. She's received excellent care there. She's had a few health issues since she's been there. She's had a few falls. They worked with us to get her enrolled in hospice. The staff has been very caring. She's still there; she's just enrolled in hospice, and they come to see her there. The staff know each of the residents well, know their likes and dislikes. Even the cook in the kitchen comes out and makes sure my mom's eating. So I would give definite thumbs up to the staff. Their maintenance has been very good. We do not have any issues with that.

I toured Clare Bridge and it was very beautiful and it seemed very clean. But the one thing I felt was that the hallways were a bit difficult to navigate. It would be easy for me to get lost in there.

Clare Bridge only has around 50 residents. It's all on one floor, it's much smaller and so there's more individual care. It also didn't smell bad. The people seem a lot friendlier. The staff is wonderful, very patient, very loving and is really great with my mother. She's extremely happy. Before she went there she was not a happy person. But ever since, she's happy and content. She shares a room with another resident. They try very hard to get her to interact with other people. They have a beauty shop where she could get her nails done. They would go out to dinner once a month. The food there is good. My husband and I were invited last Thanksgiving for dinner. And if you want to bring your own lunch, they have a little private dining room where you can have a private luncheon. It's very nice. I haven't had any complaints at all. It's a very nice place although it's expensive.

Clarebridge of Troy in Troy, MI is a nice facility. This is a nursing home for Alzheimer's patients. I would recommend this facility to those looking for a quality place for their loved ones. When I was there in 2010, the first thing I noticed was the amount of activity in the community. Patients and their visiting family members could participate in various activities throughout the day, such as exercising, sing alongs and crafts. The women who ran the social activities had so much energy, were very patient and seemed to really care for the patients. The nurses at this facility were helpful and compassionate. One drawback was that it was difficult to find an aide sometimes, when assistance was needed. Out of five stars, I would rank the grounds a five, the common areas a five, the residents' rooms a five, the staff a four and the quality of care a five. When you first walk in, the common area is made to look like a town center. It is very welcoming. Overall, I'd give Clarebridge a rating of 4 stars because the care received is good, the staff is knowledgeable in Alzheimer's care and the facility is well kept up.

Clare Bridge of Troy is a very nice facility for seniors. They are located on Northfield Parkway, very convenient as it's near three hospitals. My father retired at the age of 67 and this is the place I decided he should live the rest of his life at. He was recently diagnosed with a type of dementia. Clare Bridge offers great care, housekeeping, and other essential services, all in comfortable environment. They have amazing amenities and programs for their residents. I'd like to take a moment and comment on the housing at Clare Bridge. They have great rooms with comfortable living spaces, fireplace in the sitting room, a dining room, laundry and gym. Clare Bridge is professional and has a great background history in Alzheimer's and dementia care. I trust their experience 100%, and I recommend you do too. I've already told my family and friends about Clare Bridge of Troy, so check them out.
