Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Robinwood

December 30, 2013

I am a friend or relative of a resident

I do weekly visits to my friend who is now at Gaston Place. The facility is old, but she likes the place. Her roommate is very, very nice and she also likes that. She gets her hair done there and they do her laundry so that's good. It has been a good experience for her. They have different things going around there. They go on trips, but my friend doesn’t because she's in a wheelchair. I have not eaten there but she said that the food is good.

I visited this facility

Gaston Place was pretty and clean. They're friendly and nice-looking. They have different sizes of rooms. The staff talked to me and told me what they do there.

I visited this facility

From what I was able to gather in my experiences with my grandmothers stay, the place is an excellent and trustworthy home for people in extra need of assistance. Rooming was excellently well kept, and there was a caretaker by the name of William who was especially nice to my grandmother during her time there. I was quite fond of the excellent care provided to my grandmother in her twilight years. As opposed to the previous facility in which we had my grandmother staying, Gaston Place was a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. No one made my grandmother feel like a chore, and she always had someone with which to have a good conversation. I wouldn't hesitate to suggest Gaston Place to anyone, and have suggested it to plenty of friends and relatives since. I will forever sing this amazing establishments praises, and my grandmother I am sure would agree with me whole heartily for doing so.
