Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Hattiesburg

July 05, 2012

I visited this facility

The facility itself was beautiful. Everything was well maintained, clean, and in working order. The homes were very spacious and easy to get around. My mother in law said she really enjoyed the community activities available to her, especially the senior meeting center. The exercise rooms were a bit limited, which was a disappointment to her, because she likes a good workout, but other than that she felt that the community provided her with plenty to do.The only real issue we found with the facility was the staff. For the most part they were friendly. The women who came by to clean her house was incredibly rude though, and basically told my mother in law that she wouldn't clean unless my mother in law left the house to go do something else while she was there, because she didn't want to chase her from room to room. Other members of the staff talked to her like a child. Ultimately my mother in law asked us to move her to a different home.

I visited this facility

I visited this facility last spring as part of an educational tour group. The class was looking at conditions within assisted living centers as part of a discussion on nursing homes. To be honest, it was my first experience with any type of assisted living facility. My first impression was very good, the facility was very clean and bright. It wasn't at all I would have expected, or what is often depicted, as a nursing home. The staff was also very friendly and walked around with our group for about forty-five minutes. The patients all seemed to be happy with their time under the staff's care, we never heard anything bad about the centre from the patients. After finishing the guided tour with the two staff members, we were allowed to go around the facility by ourselves and meet some of the patients, it was a really good experience. Based on my time there, I realized that I would not mind if my final living place was a centre similar to this one.
