Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Wayne

I visited this facility

Brookdale Wayne was very nice, and the people were very impressive. The manager was a very nice person. The ambiance was pretty nice, but not quite as warm in appearance as where my father is staying. The rooms were pretty standard and small, motel-room size, with a bathroom with a seat so they can sit while taking a shower and lots of handrails everywhere. There's also a window to the outside so the rooms seemed pretty nice. Some of the rooms had their own little kitchenette with a microwave oven and a little refrigerator.

I really like Brookdale Wayne. My parents are adjusting well. We haven't had any problems so far. They go out monthly to a local restaurant and they also have Bingo and cooking classes. The residents cannot participate in cooking, and I was hoping they'd have an interactive activity, but instead they just watch the person cook. They serve three meals a day, but the food could be improved. They also do their laundry for them. I have no problems with the staff at all and we've had good communication. Everybody's pleasant.

Brookdale Wayne was very nice and clean, but we needed independent living. We went to a couple of rooms, and they were nice. It was a very convenient place.

I love Brookdale. They're very good, very professional, very caring, and love their jobs. The food is very good. It's 20 minutes away, and the price is comparable to others. My husband has been there for a month, and I'm very happy. I would recommend the place.

Brookdale Wayne is wonderful for assisted living but the people with dementia are kind of put in a more restricted space than where my husband is now. The rooms were very nice; you couldn’t ask for nicer, like a very nice hotel. The people were also very nice.

I visited Brookdale Wayne. The place was very dark. I was taken around by one woman, and she was quite good. The main floor was very dark where the dining room and lounge were. It was hard to tell about the rooms because the place was being renovated. There were some activities going on.

I visited my mom and always find her smiling she is always telling me she loves it here and how it's changed her life knowing at home she would have nobody to take care of her hands on needy problems other than me. She is always telling me about her favorite worker Mina or mini was the name and how she runs to help and put a smile on everyone's face and visits often on her free time this just comes to show that this place is an environmentally happy place where workers enjoy to be at. Who would come to work on their day off and hug and visit residents?? The food and everything is great! I am happy knowing my mom is in a safe happy place.

This facility recently became Brookdale (from Emeritus). Since that time the food service has declined dramatically and the cable tv has been limited to what must be basic service (previously hallmark, food ,hgtv were available). Some of the staff are excellent and caring. Unfortunately, that can not be said for all.

It is very nice. There are a lot of things for them to do, and they get three meals a day. They give them a little activity calendar, so she is very happy there. But I think they need to improve a little bit like the entrance way should be kept a little better and more updated. They should put an overhang outside so when you are putting back and its pouring rain, there’s a way to get that person with a walker to the car without trying to be under an umbrella. Some places I originally looked up long ago had something like that. I have never eaten there, but she is always happy with the food; she says it’s good, and sometimes she complains but we are happy with it.

Mom is in here and we get Medicaid. If you’re there for two years, you then get priority to those beds and the distance from my husband was something important. I wanted the minority of the beds to be Medicaid beds. It was pretty much what I pictured. My mom is Jewish, and they had a Rabbi coming in once a week, so that told us there was enough to use there. I like best is the people that I met: the executive director, director, customer relations, and Wendy the nurse. The room and dining room is really nice, and it is well-designed. Mom is engaged with their activities, and they have bingo every day. They’re focusing on having fun while they do their jobs because if they have fun, they set the tone. The atmosphere is warm. It was friendly; they give head ups of what my mother’s character is like, and they knew exactly how to respond to her and make a big deal whether she came in. Other’s just didn’t do that. My mom couldn’t have been happier. The room was fine, extremely clean, extremely fine quality. and no smells or anything like that.

It was nice. It was very much like all the other ones, but what impressed me was that my mother wanted a large room, and they had a 600-square-foot room suite for her, so that's what I took for her. The staff seemed very nice. Also, I like this one because it is 5 minutes from my house. The place was spacious. The outside ground was not big, but my mother is 90 and she is not going outside too much. Security was fine. They had someone at the desk there all the time.

I had my mom here. We like everything about this facility, and that is the reason why we chose it. She has a studio room, and that is adequate for her. She has a little kitchenette, and it has a nice view. We love the staff. They are very nice.

The rooms are very nice. They had different setup where each section had some sort of theme to it, like farm setting or something distinctive. The staff all seemed to be very competent.

My dad is in here. It is a very nice and up-beat community. The environment is nice, and there is nice feel to the place. Everybody in the front door office, the staff, and the people in the wellness center are very helpful and caring. The residents there seem happy. The rooms all look good.There are a nice size, clean, and bright. My dad has a studio, and it is a a decent size for him. I had lunch there, and the food is good. They have activities like movies, crafts, and different things that they do. On the second floor, they do cooking and exercising. I think they need probably more transportation over the week for the residents.
