Independent Living Reviews for Brookdale Clinton

March 20, 2018

By Daniel

I visited this facility

I find Brookdale Clinton to be well-run and well-appointed. It is not particularly easy to get to, but it is relatively close to my parents' current home. The staff members are accommodating. The rooms are small but well designed. Activities appear plentiful and appropriate. They have social hours, shopping trips, and dining trips.

I loved the independent unit of Brookdale Clinton. The staff was excellent and they don't have a lot of turnover, so we've known most of them for nine years. When they'd see my mother they'd hug her, that's how close they were. She had a 1-bedroom apartment and she did really well. She had caregivers for the last year and half so that's why we decided to move her next door to memory care, because she needed more care. The people were nice, her apartment was nice, and they would come in and clean it. The chef for both memory and independent care were the same, so the food is really good. They had this nice room with a fireplace for when they have discussions or guests. They had a library, a game room, and the dining room was large, lovely, and very pleasant. They also have a beauty salon and we became very good friends with the hairstylist. They had a café and there's popcorn, they had a happy hour where they'd serve wine. That's where they usually have people come in and play music or movies. The exercise room was next to the cafe. It's two floors and they had 1-bedroom and 2-bedroom apartments. They had a chapel and there were these little nooks in the hallways where people were always working on puzzles. They had one large room upstairs with a big table and chairs for the residents to just hang out in. The atmosphere was very friendly. My mom used to ask me, "How did you ever find this place? I love it here." They had some really great activities and I have been to some of them. They take them out to eat at different restaurants once a week. It's a little more expensive, but it's worth the money for the services you get.

I thought Brookdale Clinton was a very nice facility. We had lunch there, and the food was good. It looked like a well-run facility, but my uncle has decided that he wants to stay where he is now. The staff was very courteous and helpful. I was very impressed with this place. The apartment we looked at was very nice and well kept but small.

I visited this facility

I was able to visit Brookdale Clinton, and I viewed the place very favorably. We went there several times, and it was neat and clean. I happened to be there during their happy hour. The residents were clapping, laughing, and interacting. Everyone had meal choices, and they were raving about the food. We looked at the apartments, and they all looked neat and clean with everything you could possibly want. I liked the option of having therapy if need be. They had exercise equipment there.

My father has been in Brookdale for some months now. My father made his decision based on meeting the manager; her name is Janet. My father meets someone there that he knows from long ago, and that kind of breaks the ice. Then when he sits down and talks to Janet, she is really solely responsible for his decision to move in there. She is a remarkable person. I think the most important at his age is food. He actually likes better variety of food. I eat the main meal and the food is very good. My husband and I both eat there on another occasion, and it is excellent. He has a one-bedroom unit with a living room and a kitchenette. It is just in the right size. We appreciate having someone there all the time. We thank that he can walk out in the community. He does not have to stay inside. He can go out and talk to people. He is very happy that they have flowers. He is looking forward in having some gardening in the spring because he always enjoys growing plants. The grounds are nice. There is a little patio. It has easy access. He takes his walker and goes outside for fresh air. I think it is a terrific place for this time of his life, and I am very happy that he is able to live there. The staff is incredible, and honestly, it is the staff that matters. They interact with them all the time. This is a very special environment, and the staff really makes it work.

This is a wonderful community. I am so glad we looked here prior to moving my parents into assisted living elsewhere. The building is well maintained and the maintenance staff is very accommodating and patient. The food is excellent and choices abundant. All of the staff called my parents by name the day we moved them in. They are kind, patient and understanding. Even though it is a large community, the staff not only knows my parents but also they also know me and who I am connected to. When one parent was in the hospital and the other with family, they asked after both of them. The fact they know my parents and what is going on in their lives is very comforting to me. They contact me with any problems or concerns and I am very comfortable reaching out to them as well. What a Godsend this has been.
