Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Charlotte East

I visited this facility

I got a tour of Brookdale Charlotte East and they showed me all the common areas and the rooms. The room that I saw had a nice view. It was fine. They have a chapel, a library, and a big common area with a TV. They have a calendar of activities with things listed. The staff that I met was very knowledgeable and she knows her job. One thing I noticed about it is that compared to the other ones I saw, this one is an older building. It's a pretty large building that's secure because it has a gate around it. Then you have to buzz to get in, so that was very good for security.

Our visit with Brookdale Charlotte East was very favorable. We went on a tour. We spoke to some employees. They were very nice and helpful. I talked to a gentleman whose house was in there, and had nothing but good to say about it. It was a nice and clean facility.

Brookdale Charlotte East was the same as the other Brookdale; all of them were the same. Their rooms were beautiful, and their dining facilities were beautiful.

Brookdale Charlotte East was a lovely community with lovely people living there. The staff was very pleasant and very helpful. They were able to show me everything they could about the community. I liked that the place was in a very nice location and a quiet neighborhood. In fact, it was like a bird sanctuary. They had apartments suited for seniors needing assistance. Their dining area was gorgeous all the way around too. I was not able to try their food though. They had all kinds of wonderful activities that were stimulating like playing cards. Plus, they had a bus that can take them to beautiful places. All in all, it was a great community in my opinion.

I have eaten in Brookdale Charlotte East, and the food was OK. I would rate the food about a 3. They had attentive staff, but it did not seem as relaxed. They had smaller bedrooms and smaller kitchens. The dining room was very pleasant. They don't have a buffet. You order from the menu of the day, and it was pretty tasty. I was impressed with its accessibility and security.

I like the flexibility. You can stay there 30 days after a hospital. They had private rooms and things of that nature, and it seems like the care is quality. They have different room sizes for the different requirements of the folks that are staying there. It was a brief stay, but we did tour the kitchen area and the dining area. They also had a couple areas were you could do group activities, and it was nice. The whole place is clean. The staff seemed to be courteous and knowledgeable. They also seemed to be helpful.

We haven't made any decision yet, but this community is a good candidate. It has a family environment setting. Everyone gets to know everyone quickly. My mother spent three days there; she was on their "stay-cation," and she drew a lot of attention from the residents. The residents there were extremely friendly. The staff was excellent, as well as the meals, their dining area, and the servers. The main thing is its private pay, as at the majority of these places.

It was convenient for me. I knew someone who was already living there; they had been there for a few years and they were really pleased. The room is fine and there is a variety of food to choose from. They have activities every day at 2:00 pm. They had bingo several times, people come in for entertainment and they had a bible study mom can go to.

I've chosen Brookdale Charlotte East. It's been wonderful. Everybody seems happy there. The person that is in charge of getting new people in there, she is wonderful. She remembers everything, and she touches base with me. I just have nothing but good experiences there. I got to see the rooms there. I have been there three times, and it is very nice and roomy. I am getting a one bedroom, but it does not feel claustrophobic; the room's a nice size. I am excited about it. The food there is delicious. They invited us over for lunch one day, and it was really, really good. They have something planned every single day, sometimes more than once. I don't know anything specific, but I just know they have lots of activities. Except for the location, it is perfect. I just don’t really love the location. The staff are all wonderful.

I toured Brookdale Charlotte East. It was great, it was lovely. It was very nice, the apartment I looked at was bright and sunny, and I had a meal there; the meal was quite good. I talked to several of the residents, they were friendly and warm, and Drew, the guy that toured me, was very helpful.

I plan on moving into Brookdale Charlotte East. They were congenial and personable. The studio apartment was fine. The staff was receptive. The food was good and the dining area was restaurant style. They had a full activity schedule, transportation, and church services. They have walking paths. The residents were friendly and the parking was adequate.

The people at Brookdale Charlotte East are very knowledgeable, helpful, and delightful. Once you're in it, it's very nice. They're designed for people who basically can maneuver in and out of their rooms themselves into a social room or to a bus. You have to be fairly independent and have a pretty high level of autonomy to live there. The individual rooms were nice, but the social gathering room could use a lot of work.

Brookdale Charlotte East had just had a party when we went there, but the people were not actively engaged and just sitting around and talking to each other. The woman who showed us around was very knowledgeable and seemed to be acquainted with the residents. They had a pretty active activity calendar. Like most places, they had buses to take you places.

Brookdale Charlotte East had a lot of amenities, but they had a built-in meal plan and their curb appeal wasn't so nice. When you walk in, it was very dark, and it was very unfriendly looking. It wasn't a pretty place at all and their apartments were horrible. I liked their activities and they had a great amenity program. They have a door decorating contest once a month and they encourage people to do things to make their place look prettier. They have a great big art room. I'm in a 2-bedroom apartment now and I would be paying $1,000 more a month for a 1-bedroom apartment here. Instead of having central air-conditioning, they have window units, so you can't put a piece of furniture in front of the windows. They had a beautiful dining room with beautiful lighting. The apartment had a very pretty kitchen. I just didn't like that its configuration did not give you any wall space. I also did not like the fact that I was given a tour by the bus driver.

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

My mother-in-law moved in Brookdale Charlotte East last Wednesday. She has a little assistance right now escorting her to meals and things like that, but so far so good with the independent living. I like the level of genuine care of the staff. I worked in health care for 44 years, and you kind of know when people care or whatever they are just going to the motion. On every level, everybody that we meet has been extremely caring, and that is important. Her apartment is very spacious. The floor plan is very well put together. It is everything that she really needs. The grounds are very beautiful. They have walking paths around it, and there is a beautiful outdoor area or patio under trees with lots of bird feeders and lots of big trees that makes it nice and shady. It is beautiful. It is in not in the best section of town, but the facility itself is dated, and the surroundings around it are so nice, you will not realize that it is kind of tucked back in a different area. It is affordable for her. Again, the staff makes the difference. I go there during the day and just watch them. I can see the staff interacting with the people constantly. Everybody seems happy. I talk to a lot of residents, and they are happy. It is so cute; they are all sitting together watching a movie in this big room munching on popcorn and having a great time. They have a lot of activities. It is the most impressive place that I have ever been to.
