Originally very pleased with this facility, but there have been some recent changes that have me questioning the management.

We visited the nice independent living level of The Gables of Brighton. Everybody had a little patio or a little balcony. The rooms were very nice and clean. The dining area was very lovely and served two meals a day. They had a salon, a fitness area, and transportation service.

Brookdale Brighton was very nice. They showed me a 1-bedroom and a 2-bedroom, and they were very nice, a good-size, and livable. They layout was good and I liked it. The staff member was very knowledgeable, pleasant, and nice. I enjoyed talking to them, and I had a pretty good experience with them.

Brookdale Brighton was landscaped really nicely. It was kind of woodsy, but the place was beautiful and clean. The staff was wonderful, but I thought the apartments were small. They have exercise classes which I thought was nice. I was very impressed.

We were treated very warmly at Brookdale Brighton. All of our questions were answered. They went to a lot of trouble to make sure our questions were fully answered. It was a nice tour. It was a very enjoyable experience. It was fully informative and very useful in the sense that they answered our questions. They gave us a feeling for “how” and not just what people were doing but how they were doing it. It wasn’t all that big, it was more of an intimate feeling, but it was located near everything that we wanted to go and see.

Brookdale Brighton was fine, friendly, and very focused on independent living. My friend was not able to take advantage of that, but it was good. They had outside services that come in to assist people, which is interesting. They’re independent living, but then outside services come in to help keep people there, so they don’t have to leave. That’s very helpful. It didn’t meet our needs though, but I could see where it would meet other people’s need.

I like Brookdale Brighton for my aunt. It was lovely, but the only problem was, for someone with dementia, there were too many hallways to go down to get to the main area. The staff that I talked to was nice. The rooms were nice, and the bathrooms were set up with towels and shower curtains.

My tour at Brookdale Brighton was pretty good. Their apartments are very nice. My uncle has a very roomy studio apartment. The only complaint I have would be with the food. They have a new chef, and the food hasn’t been that great. They have a pond in the back and a couple of seats where the residents can sit. Activities include going to concerts and having someone come in, usually once or twice a week, to give a concert.

The Gables at Brighton was beautiful with also beautiful rooms. They offered driving to doctor’s appointments and to grocery stores. The staff was very nice, the food was good, and the cost was reasonable. I think they have everything, like they can get their hair done, exercises, music room, gauging people in different things, and reading groups. It is not assisted living, so they didn’t have medical back up, but I think they should have a medical back up in case they fall.

Gables at Brighton was nice, but they only do like all inclusive, and I was looking for more of a meal program where you wouldn't have to go down every breakfast, lunch, and dinner with everybody and you could just pay as you go, and they do not offer that.

Gables at Brighton was clean. It was spacious and nice. It was a good place to be. It was really homey. They have arts and crafts. It was very nice. Regarding the neighborhood, it's a very busy residential area, but it is kind of set back a little bit, so that makes it nice. It's convenient. It is near a hospital.

The Gables at Brighton is in a pretty wooded area, but it is centrally located. There are a lot of things very close by, i.e., grocery store and the doctors. The apartments were lovely. They weren't huge, but they were plenty big enough. The views out the window were beautiful. You can have a nice walk around the place. There are three meals a day. There are a lot of things to do. The Gables was very nice. The staff seemed to be very pleasant. It was my favorite of all of them, but it was way too expensive for me. The dining area was lovely. It wasn't too big. In terms of activities, there were something every day and there were things that I would have enjoyed. They have a bus that takes you places. They have pool table. They have concerts. I would definitely recommend this place to others.

My father is at the Gables right now. I really like it. For what we need it for, it's just fine for him. They have little programs during the day, 10 o'clock is exercise. The food is very good, and the cleanliness is awesome. It's a very nice environment. It has very nice energy, is bright, and it has been awesome. They have their own apartments. Because some people don't want to just sit around their house and watch TV by themselves, probably, they have a TV room where they can all share the same TV, but at 7 o'clock, they watch movies together, so I guess that would be fine.

Dad was at the Gables of Brighton, but he became ill and needs to go back to the hospital. He was only there for a month. The place was very nice and they took care of my father.

My sister and I toured this facility and happened to like it. As a matter of fact we just moved our father there last week. The price is very reasonable. I like that they provide transportation to appointments. They have a lot of good diverse schedule of activities. Most of all I really like their dining facility. It's really huge and it's like a restaurant than like a dining hall. There are different plans one can sign up for. There's not a breakfast or lunch but a brunch. So the brunch is included everyday but the dinner it's extra and you can sign up for 10 meals a month, 20 or 30. We had him for 20 meals a month. His apartment is nice. The staff seemed caring.
