Memory Care Reviews for Brookdale Eagan

I visited this facility

Brookdale is small with only 52 residents, which is what I like. It's a homey memory care facility. They have a lot of sitting areas to make it feel homey and courtyards. The staff is wonderful, and the food is good.

Brookdale was around 15 years old, pretty clean, didn’t smell, and the residents seemed happy and engaged. The staff I met was fine, but I wasn’t impressed at all.

My husband is a resident of Brookdale in Eagan. Before selecting this community I visited quite a few facilities for people with Alzheimers. Brookdale not only started at a lower cost, the atmosphere of the building is incomparable. There are no locked sections, the bedrooms are large and mostly single, the Town Square and the public rooms are comfortable and inviting. The staff, including administration, knows each one of the people who live there, and my husband is so happy. He calls it "heaven". I can relax. He has excellent care, the stimulation of other people around him, giving him what I, even hiring outside help, could never give to his quality of life. I am so grateful for my peace of mind, and the contentment of my husband.

Formerly Clare Bridge. If you are a very rich family place your loved one here & walk away & never look back. This facility is all about money & not the cares your loved one receives. If you go on Elderly Waiver because they have taken all your finances good luck on staying at this facility as they only allow 8 residents to be on Medical Assistance. They do have some good care givers but are short in that area. They over work them & they burn out over the amount of work they have to do. Other than caring for the Residents. I would not recommend this facility to anyone. Do your research tour every facility you can. Get the prices. Make sure your retainer you put down goes to the first months rent. Read the contract thru see if they can add to your fee every 30 days to see if your cost will go up. Also what percent it can go up each year. Get everything in writing and signed. Brookdale Communities are hudge very large they brag that they now have 120,000 residents.

I just loved Clare Bridge of Eagan. It was beautiful. The lady that runs it was so nice. She was beautiful, wonderful, warmhearted, and caring. If my mom wanted to go to assisted living, I would choose that place. They had tons of activities. The people there looked happy, and that made me happy.

Employees care about residents very much. They also get to know residents well and take time to get to know the family members. I wouldn't want her anywhere else.

We've performed at the Clare Bridge of Eagan many times. They are always so welcoming and so accommodating. The community is clean and nice, and the best part is the residents are wearing smiles.

The community, staff, and management had made what seemed to be an unmanageable, overwhelming, devastating time in me and my husband's life into a positive one. He receives the best of care there. We are beyond happy!

We had to move my husband from a memory care facility in Fargo which could no longer care for my husband. I can't tell you what a wonderful facility Clare Bridge is. The staff actually treat all of the residents like their own family. All of the staff is highly trained. It is very clean. My husband has settled in and doing very well.

This assisted living provider is where my grandparents stay and is a very nice place to stay. My grandpa is 82 now and has gotten alzheimer's disease so he is losing a lot of his memory. My grandma is getting older and she has a hard time walking and keeping watch over my grandpa so they decided to go to Clare Bridge. The staff there are all nice and very friendly. They do there job with a smile and that's really important. The facility is well built and very big. There is tons of space and stuff to do all the time. Overall my grandparents have said they really like it there and that's the most important thing!
