Independent Living Reviews for Brentwood Estates

I visited this facility

Brentwood Estates was nice, and they pretty much had everything. They serve three meals, and the staff seemed to be OK. The rooms looked really nice, and they had a nice walking trail. All in all, it looked pretty good to me.

Brentwood Estates was very nice. They have dining, roll in showers, and activities on the weekend. The dining area was very nice, well laid out, and with plenty of room to get around. It was bright and cheery. People were bringing in their food, and they had a choice of food.

We just dropped by at Brentwood Estates, and they didn’t know we were coming, but they showed me a studio room which was OK. I liked that some of their apartments had 2 doors -- a front door and a back door which was really nice because it made me feel more at home. The parking was quite a long ways away, and I would have to talk to them about that. The pricing was a lot cheaper than the other place I visited, and they provide 3 meals a day.

Brentwood Estates has a very cozy feel the minute you walk in. It has very wide hallways. The reception you get is wonderful. It has a beautiful dining room, and the people are so considerate. I have been there for three weeks, and I am very satisfied with the care they are providing.

We chose Brentwood Estates for our relative. It was friendly, warm, and welcoming. We've been happy with it so far. Everything has been very positive, and food and services are good. She's gone to church and some of the music events. We've eaten there twice, and we liked it.

The appearance of Brentwood Estates is good. It is a very basic independent-living facility where the philosophy is that you will maintain your independence. I happened to look out at garden level which was very delightful. I did not eat there but I saw the dining area; it was very basic, met the need, nothing fancy. The staff is very helpful. I did not see people engaged but I know that they had a wide range of activities as well as transportation available to various activities.

Brentwood Estates was very nice. Mike, the manager, was fantastic and gave me a wonderful tour. I would love to be there. It was for my brother who decided not to go there, but not because he didn’t really like the place; it was for other reasons.

We went to Brentwood Estates for a visit. It's a lovely facility, and it's basically senior living. I need something that has more assisted living. The rooms were nice, and we were treated well. The surprising thing about it was that the one-bedroom apartment had the same price as or was even cheaper than the studio.

I liked Brentwood Estates, but the price was way too high for me. The staff was OK; they were fine. I liked that it was clean and nice, and the people were really nice.

I had my mother in Brentwood Estates for a couple of months, and I liked it very much. It was very clean, welcoming, and very warm. It was my mother's choice. I would not have chosen that place just because she needed assisted living, but I let her make that choice. One of the reasons why we left there was because there were times when she needed help, and they refused to help. She was having difficulty too with the meals. There was four weeks that they had to shut down their dining hall. They served meals at the rooms, and the meals consisted of mostly sandwiches. She lost about 25 pounds because she didn't like the food that was being brought to her, and she just quit eating. They need to have management that is more patient and considerate with their tenants, but overall it was a nice place.
