Independent Living Reviews for Brookdale Hendersonville East

I visited this facility

The feel of Brookdale Hendersonville East was very nice and very pleasant. It was an enclosed facility with apartments, which led up from corridors. We felt that the apartments were a little on the small side if we needed a wheelchair, but we still liked the facility, and the location was good. We met one of the residents who was accommodating and quite pleased with the place.

Brookdale Hendersonville East is mainly independent living. It's private pay, and I like the large studio apartment with the tiny little kitchen; that's what attracted me. It was a nice community. I have a friend from church who lives there, and she just loves it. I love the 3 meals a day. It's all in one building, and there are no private cottages -- so it's very commercial -- but inside it's nice. They have a nice lobby, and they offer movie night with popcorn and candy. You can get a 17x15 square foot studio, with a nice huge closet all set up for short and long clothes. It even has some storage in the bathroom, and everything is handicap-accessible. My friend has the room to herself for $2400 a month. She has her own tiny little refrigerator, microwave, and television and is free to go about her business.

I enjoyed me visit to Brookdale Hendersonville North. It was a very nice place. The people working there were very warm, very nice, very cordial, polite, and professional. It just was not what my friend was looking for. I thought their accommodations were a little on the small side, actually. It had a barbershop, a library, a salon, and a gym.

I enjoyed the meal I ate when I went to Brookdale Hendersonville East. I also enjoyed the conversation that I had with the lady that showed me around. She was nice and helpful. The space that she showed me was smaller than where I would prefer to live. As far as I could see, the residents looked happy.

I am staying in Brookdale. It is OK. The staff is pretty good. They have very good, basic rooms with their own bathrooms. They have nice activities and take them on rides. The food is pretty good.

We looked at Brookdale Hendersonville East. It was very nice, but they had cottages. Because my mother was by herself, she wanted to make sure she was in an apartment where she would be able to see people everyday. Brookdale Hendersonville East was very nice, but it was not what she was looking for. They were offering a cottage rather than an apartment. The facility was very clean. My mother loved it. They were really nice, they were roomy, but they were cottages and she figured she would be better off in an apartment.

My parents are in Brookdale, and they are seemingly very happy. They had friends that live there. It is homey, and everybody has been really friendly and helpful. The apartment is very nice, and it is everything they need. I'm pleased with it. They seem to have a lot of activities like bingo, arts and crafts, movies, and field trips. I can't say a whole lot about it other than mom and dad are happy there, and that is all I care about.

My parents will be going here in about three weeks. The people there are great. The rooms are nice, and I may even go there myself. They have three meals served in a buffet style, and their dining room is very pretty. They do all kinds of extracurricular activities all the time. They have a shuttle that takes them to town or wherever they want to go. The staff is nice and knowledgeable. He was very helpful, very caring, and thoughtful. He took the time to answer all my parents' questions, and he didn't try to hurry us. He is one of the reasons we picked that place. I will absolutely recommend them to others.

My relative was a resident here. It was a lovely facility. He had plenty of spaces to roam about inside provided he didn't go outside. We chose this facility because they have things that he likes. He is a pianist and they have a couple of pianos there that he could play. He also plays pool and they have a pool table there. He was in a private room and it was very good. They did provide nice furniture but I still had to provide furniture for him and moved those out. That didn't bother me at all. The only reason we had to move him to another facility was that it was not a locked facility and he was trying to leave it all the time. They told me that I have to move him into a locked facility because they didn't want him to get hurt.

We visited and everything seemed fine. It was an independent living unit but we were looking for an assisted living unit. The room looked sufficient. Their dining room was okay. They had some activities like bingo. It was homey. The only negative aspect was that they were under the fly path of the airport; so, it was noisy with the planes going all over.
