My father-in-law has moved into Brighton Gardens of Edison. It was smaller. It was only like a maximum of 20 to 23 in their memory care facility, so they kind of have a little bit more hands on with the patients. He has different nurses morning, day, and night, and they all know his and my name, and they're good with him. I have not tried the food, but he enjoys it. He's got a private room. It's very clean. They do his laundry, clean up the place, and they're constantly getting him out and involved with other people. They keep them entertained. They have something going all day long with the music or the exercise. Everybody else there seems to be happy, too. It is pretty expensive, but he's getting good care.

Brighton Gardens of Edison was lovely. The grounds were very nice. We had a warm, happy feeling when we walked in there, seeing a lot of people sitting in the common area and enjoying this show on TV. The receptionist was most helpful and got me to the right place to meet the right people. My first impression was very nice. They sent me home with a warm apple pie that was just as good as homemade. It didn't taste like a store-bought pie. So, that was delicious. They had a very nice enclosed garden area where you could walk around and you could go out there safely in case you had any kind of disability. They had a sunroom where they had meetings like a patient advocate kind of thing, on what they could do better, and other activities there. They also have a kitchen where they have cooking classes and breadmaking that they could participate in. They had a lovely little library, which was where I sat with the two representatives, and it was very comfortable and very well stocked. I met with Christian and Zahara, and both were very pleasant and answered any questions I had. They were very informative. The facility was very nice. The people, as far as I could tell, can come and go as they please unless they were a high-risk wanderer.

Its been a while since my mother passed so I'm calm enough to give my feedback on my experience there. First off during our tour of the skilled rehab I wasn't told that my mom would be moved from room to room in her weak state, but it happened. Not once, but 3 times she was moved. I also didn't know my mom would be put in a behavior unit. There were several patients yelling out continuously and my mom couldn't sleep at night. I complained to the social worker who got back to me 2 days later. She spoke to me as if I was her kid which I didn't appreciate and nothing changed. I was basically told that's the way it is. My mom was sent to the hospital eventually for complications, but I'm sure the stress during her stay didn't help. Some of the staff were compassionate and actually cared for my mom while others especially at night did not. My mom said they were very rude to her at night. I forget that this is a business and the sales people said what they wanted to get us in the door.

Provider Response

Resident care is always a priority at Brighton Gardens of Edison. It’s disappointing whenever we learn that a family member or resident did not enjoy their experience at Sunrise. One dissatisfied member of our community is one too many. Please contact us so that we can learn more. Thank you.

I have been impressed by this facility, and especially by the compassion and professionalism of the staff. The nursing facility only has 30 beds, and the staff seem just a little more cheery, calm, and attentive than other places.. My mother-in-law has been in three other nursing or assisted living facilities - and the attendants are often so rushed/stressed/distracted that it is hard to trust that your residents needs won't fall through the cracks. In fact, in other places, our family member fell, waited excessively for assistance, or had other very distressing incidents. But here, it has been ok. It hasn't been perfect. My Mother-in-Law says that some attendants are rough when they are dressing her. She is also forever losing the clicker that calls for help -- that seems like a fixable problem?? But they are patient and forgiving of her foibles, and they have been encouraging of her rehabilitation and reentry to society. They are adapting their care for her as her needs change. I do believe that my Mother-in-Law has gotten the best care we could reasonably expect. And for that I am truly grateful.

My sister-in-law moved into Brighton Gardens of Edison. The place itself is very welcoming. I was very much impressed with it. Their grounds are lovely, the individual rooms are very nice. I was very much surprised; I thought all nursing homes would just have a bed in there, and you would go downstairs if you wanted to watch TV or anything. It's set up like a little hotel room. It's very nice and very clean. She's only been there two, maybe three weeks but the staff seem very accommodating. We're just very happy with that. Though she didn't want to leave her home, she keeps telling me how nice they are; this is good news to hear. Every time I've had to ask something, or question anyone, they were right there. So, right now they're still a five. I'm not saying they can't go down, but right now they are five. I didn’t try the food, but I asked her, and she said it was very good. I have, read about them and what they're planning to do and whatnot. They're having an open trunk night, October 27, for Halloween. They're telling people to bring their grandkids and kids in general, and they have entertainment. They have trips and whatnots. They're all expensive as far as I'm concerned, but compared to the others, it's well worth paying for.

I visited this facility

I toured Brighton Gardens of Edison for my parents. The community was good, but we were just not happy with it as they didn't have enough community group areas. They only had one, which was their lobby. There was no separation between the bedroom and the kitchen or living room area. The place looked fine. The person who gave the tour was very good. In fact, she had a service dog with her, which was very, very well trained. We met in the dining area, and it seemed to be very small. I liked the location. I needed to have some place that was close to my home that I could help them or be available to them. They were playing bingo in the lobby when we arrived. There was very little outside space. Brighton Gardens is good for one person, but not necessarily good for a husband-and-wife team because I think it's too small. The staff was very nice and very professional.

Brighton Gardens of Edison was nice. The staff who assisted me during the tour was fine. I got a sample of the menu, and it looks ok. The room that I was looking at seems a little bit smaller than some that I've seen. In terms of activities, they were having a little history thing, and that was fine. They showed us where they usually do a few things, but that was right in the open when we walked in. I didn't see any extra rooms to do activities in.

My mother is in Brighton Gardens of Edison for rehab. It seems to be well-organized, welcoming, and had a lot of activities provided for the people staying there in the assisted living part. I have a little problem with her prescriptions. My mom has a prescription program where we get it for three months and they told me I can bring those pills in, in blister packs, which I proceeded to do. But I also got a bill stating that they got the medications from the pharmacy that's connected to them. So I need to find out and see what the problem is and why was this done that way. Somehow I think it's a lack of communication. But on the other hand, I did what I was supposed to do, which was the blister pack, and handed it over to the people. Some of the people working there are really great and very caring. I've been told that my mom is eating their food well. There are activities, although my mom has chosen not to take part in. What I see there is stimulating them. They have exercises, bingo, and other things. The facilities are better than some of the places that I visited.

My mother is at Brighton Gardens of Edison. So far, it's been OK. We haven't been there that long, but from what I gathered talking to people, I have a better vibe of where she is at right now. They reach out, they call, and they keep me updated so for the most part it's been good. The staff has also been good so far and very informative.

We were not that impressed with Brighton Gardens of Edison. The person who showed us around was very nice enough to give us whatever information he had. The other staff members were also nice enough. I was just a little disappointed that even though we called, there was no one to take us around and give us more information on the pricing, etc. The room size was good enough, but the layout was not impressive at all. The shared room was a 1 out of 5 because there was one big bed on one side and one twin bed on one side, which didn't make any sense to us. We saw people playing cards and watching TV. The whole scenario didn't look any bad. It was pretty good, and they had tables around for sitting and for dining.

I visited Brighton Gardens of Edison. I was escorted by one person, who was very nice and had only been there for two months so she was excited about the job. I met a couple of the residents who seemed to be enjoying themselves, so that says something. The rooms were nice but kind of small, and the closet space was tiny. The residents were engaged in playing bingo, sitting around talking, and they had a book club. The people that I talked to were pleasant. It's an older building, but it was clean which is important, and I didn't see any dirt in the corners. I didn't care for the entrance-way, I had to walk through the other unit, which was like a hospital.

The people at Brighton Gardens are friendly. The place was nice and clean. They had all kinds of games, crafts and trips. They had laundry service, and they had everything that you needed. Everything was fine. They serve three meals a day. The place doesn't smell and they take care of everything. They have transportation if the residents need it. The staff seemed to be professional and knew what they were doing. I only saw one room that was available. It was like a studio room and it was a small one.

My aunt is living in Brighton Gardens of Edison. Their staff is very caring. Each resident has a care manager assigned to them to assist their needs. They have studious or one bedroom apartments. I wouldn't call them spacious but they are livable and manageable for people. They even have room service. They also have spiritual and religious services there. They have accounting office that they can have accounts and access to cash if they need it. They have a shuttle service that takes them to different trips once or twice a month. All their meals are being taken care of by the staff. I would say that their food is pretty decent. The care that the residents get is pretty intensive.

My mom stayed at Brighton Gardens of Edison, which was excellent. They took care of her immediately when she came in the door. When she went in there, she was in a wheelchair and when I left that day, she was out of the wheelchair and walking. The staff and caregivers were awesome.

The workers were smiling at Brighton Gardens, and they seemed happy. Most of the residents seemed happier too. This facility is a little bit smaller, and they could use more parking space and bigger rooms for activities. The rooms are fine. They have two sides: one for assisted living and the other for skilled nursing. They have church, prayer groups, rosary groups, and outings to various stores over the week. They have a flower arrangement group. They do exercises in the morning and play memory stimulation type games. You can have a dog or cat in your room. The food is low sodium, but overall it’s pretty good.

My mom was at Brighton Gardens for a couple of weeks, and then she passed away. I had co-workers who had parents there. It was very cheerful and welcoming. The staff was outstanding; they had a high work ethic. She had her own private room. It was lovely; it had a lot of space. They could decorate any way they wanted. It was very open; you didn't feel cramped in there. She enjoyed and liked the food. They had a really nice dining room. She played bingo. She did a book club. She was involved with the Jeopardy Wheel of Fortune Hour and she was working on some puzzles, too. They had a puzzle group.

Brighton Gardens of Edison was OK. In comparison to the other facility we visited, it was not as well-appointed. However, the room arrangements and the room layout for a couple were much better. The staff seemed fine. I spoke with the executive director, and he was fine. He gave us a tour. I have no problems with any of the people. They were playing some game, another sedentary game, but it seemed like it was well-attended.

Brighton Gardens is our choice for my mother-in-law because it is the only facility in this area that have assisted living and skilled nursing. The people working there seem very caring. They have a lot of activities like board games, bingo and entertainment. They go on three or four trips a week. She's very happy with the food. We had lunch there a couple of times and the food seems to be in very good quality with wide selection. The rooms are very accommodating. She seems happy since she moves there. I am highly recommending them to others.

I chose this facility because it has a skilled nursing, assisted living and dementia unit. It's actually good because there's a rehab unit there in case something happens, it has everything in one place. They have many activities and the residents go out on trips. There are activities available from Monday to Friday and on days there aren't any activities they go for outings. The staff is good, they're doing good care.

Thankfully I was able to find Brighton Gardens just before losing hope of coming across a living facility that I would be able to afford for my mother. My mother is not very pleased with having to leave her apartment however; I insisted that life would be easier for the both of us if we got her into an assisted living home. It is much easier on me knowing that my mother is safe staying at Brighton Gardens with nurses and other residents. The nurses I spoke with were all extremely friendly, interesting and knowledgeable on the care needed to be given to each specific resident. It made my mother and I really feel that Brighton Gardens cares for the people it is responsible for. My mother has constantly told me how friendly all of her fellow residents are and on many nights her and her new friends spend the night out. It just seems like a great environment and I am glad that I am able to afford this facility especially because it is so close to my own home. What a stress reliever!

This home is a home away from home. My mother was recently forced to live in Brighton gardens because of a fall and was not happy about the move. Although she was rude and inconsiderate I thought that nurse jackie had a great attitude and really put my moms needs first. by the end of the first week she was more enthusiastic about her situation and made some friends. Of course there were the usual complaints and I expected nothing less. Arguments among residents are common but not unforeseeable. She is moving out in a week and actually plans to go back and visit. I mean who has ever heard of that?
