Memory Care Reviews for Brookdale Eden Prairie

May 29, 2013

By djrotter

I am a friend or relative of resident

The staff here are fantastic! My aunt and my family were treated with such genuine care and consideration during such a very difficult time for us. They had resources and support for all of our needs, anticipating situations and providing solutions for us proactively. I felt confident knowing my aunt would be well cared for when I left her there, which was very comforting to me. They not only took care of her, but the support they provided extended to our whole family. Not only while she was there, but it has continued even after her passing. I would highly recommend this care facility to anyone needing a welcome, safe and home-like care facility for thier loved one!
