Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Creve Coeur

I visited this facility

This community is a very nice old place. It's very big and very nicely done. The units were very big, but they are very expensive. At that time they didn’t have any openings so I wasn’t able to spend a lot of time dealing with them. I would definitely recommend this place as this is a high end facility.

This community is really beautiful. It's everything a person would want, but it's just out of my range. It is a beautiful place and if I could afford it, I would be more than happy to live there. As a matter of fact, my daughter recommended it to me really. The staff were very helpful and very pleasant. She gave me much information as I needed. The lunch was nice. Everything was really nice.

It is really nice. It is almost like living in New York because you're in like a 10-story tall building. It is very upscale. They have indoor swimming pool. They have several different kinds of rooms. They have studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments. If you want, you can also have like a full suite. They offered me a great deal as far as moving in there. They offered us like five months free stay. However, when I drove up there, I found that it was an ordeal just to get there. The location was inconvenient to me because it was right next to a busy interstate. It was also expensive for us. There were lots of rich people there that I don't think my mom would fit in very well. There were, however, many activities, maybe more than any other place I ever looked at.

They had an indoor pool and tons of activities. They had everything, thus it was too expensive. From the few residents that I met, the staff were great.

This community was very good. It was very modern. The staff was very kind, friendly, and courteous. They had an exercise room and a pool. They also had a lot of activities. I talked to a few residents and they seemed very happy.

I was extremely pleased when visiting this facility. I am familiar with several, and this one was very nice. I only came once with my mom to visit her friend, but I was shocked at the fancy community she lived in. There were several events going on and all the elders seemed to be really enjoying themselves with smiles on their faces. The location is really great and the stuff is so nice and caring!! The facility is beautiful and in a great neighborhood. The food at this facility is a culinary delight! The cook and food staff are excellent. My mother and I enjoyed a home-cooked tasting meal that was quite excellent. I was so impressed, it was like eating from my grandmas kitchen. My mom and dad are getting older, and I plan to keep this place in mind when putting them in a facility such as this. I don't think anyone could be more comfortable and happy living in a home such as this. I am for sure rating this facility a five star, more if I could.

Creve Coeru was a little further out than we wanted to be, but a friend recommended that we visit this facility as an option for our aunt. The shrubbery and trees outside were lovely - and there was plenty of seating around the outer area for residents and family to enjoy. The interior rooms were all clean and nicely decorated. The atmosphere was friendly and warm. The main rooms all featured nice furnishings and decorations. There was plenty for residents to do, from visiting with friends, to playing games, reading and watching films. The outside events scheduled involved the community, fine and casual dining and many cultural activities. The dining areas were homey, with many delicious looking options. Every dietary need is addressed by their dieticians and the chef seemed accommodating. He invited us to try some of his creations, all of which were nicely presented and tasty. The staff was consistently caring and kind - as we could see through their interactions with many of the residents. We are really glad that we decided to check this place out and it is at the top of our list as an option for our aunt.

Brookdale had pretty good care and a swimming pool. It had more home-style living. If you could not live in your home, then that could be considered as the next best thing. The rooms and apartments were nice. They had different rooms with different prices available, though all of them were reasonably priced and meals were included. They had a large selection of food on their menu and a large walking ground. They had van service to and from different stores and outings.

The rooms looked very nice, clean, and spacious. Brookdale Creve Coeur was high on the choice list, but they just don’t have what we need. The staff was very good and friendly, and we had a nice tour. When I was there, there were some people playing games, swimming, and doing various activities. The dining area was beautiful.

My parents lived here for several years. They enjoyed the Hallmark, there food was excellent and staff always helpful and friendly. Activities and transportation was available as well as beautician, indoor pool and a beautiful patio , that my dad used to enjoy frequently. After my mother passed, my dad moved to a one bedroom and the staff was very helpful with the move. He lived there until he became too ill and moved into my home for a short while before his passing. I would highly recommend Brookdale of Creve Coeur and I am a nurse case manager who has looked into several other communities in the past. It is one of the best!

I visited The Hallmark of Creve Coeur for a lecture. The facility itself appeared spacious and elegant. The management was very welcoming. The residents were sweet as well. Plus, they served a very nice breakfast that included fruits, coffee, and juice. They had a very interesting lecture on how to prevent scams in your life. The information was very helpful to me.

Hallmark was very good. In fact, it was one of the better places that I visited. The rooms were better in size. I don't know, I just can't get excited about it. The activities, I would say, were more extensive with more in-house kinds of things. They bring in music and singers. A little more upscale, I would say. Not quite what I wanted. It would be one that I would go to if I'd have to do it right now.

The environment at The Hallmark of Creve Coeur was very good. The facility looked well kept and modern. Their rooms were really nice and bright. We just talked to a lady there and she was really nice. She called me a couple of times to invite me to come up there and show me what they're having. They have everything there. They have activities for their residents. They would take them to, say for example, their doctors. Like I said, they have everything there. When I walked in, I was a little worried, but then, after we have seen a lot of it, we like it really well. I love it there but they're expensive. Also, its location was probably a little bit far from my son to come up there.

The Hallmark of Creve Coeur is an excellent facility. They had different accommodations of room sizes and just walking into the place was like a fine hotel. It was an exception place, the facility was well kept, and it was very clean. The staff was very professional, very warm and friendly. The residents seem to be really happy to be there.

I like Hallmark the best so far. This is my top choice for my parents. One of the reasons why I really like this place is because they have both independent and assisted living. Not a whole lot of places offer both options. Their rooms are of pretty good sizes. They are bigger than the other facility I looked at; nevertheless, they're adequate. Regarding recommending this place to others, if they're considering assisted or independent living, I would certainly recommend that they visit this facility themselves. It is definitely worth their time to go and view it. At this point I didn't have anyone residing there and that I've only visited it; however, from what they have available there, I'd say it's level of service is highly rated.
