Brookdale Wake Forest had better outdoor space than the other place I visited. The interior was more open, and not much difference in the floor plans of other places. The staff made us feel welcome. They were knowledgeable, informative, helpful, and understanding. They were very professional, very personable, not judgmental, and helpful. When you're doing something like that, being helpful is more important than just about anything else. They are pet friendly. They had 1- and 2-bedroom apartments. They provide 2 meals a day. There's an efficiency, kitchen-type thing. If you want to do your own breakfast, you can do that. However, if you want dinner or something like that, it's better to have that on the meal plan, I think. I like the location, the yard space, and the floor plans. The whole thing was good.

Glenda was the worst staff member I have ever interacted with while visiting my grandmother at Brookdale. Her attitude was rude and dismissive while I was trying to ask a simple question about my grandmothers medication. She ultimately could not answer the question and blew me off saying she would be right back and then never came back. Thankfully there were other staff members there that were happy to help me and my grandmother but I must say I am dissatisfied with the service I received from this “Glenda”. 1 star

My mom was there for almost a year in memory care. The turn over of employees is horrible. The first three months was fine. The nurse there really cared about her residents. My mom was sick they contacted DMHC and the PA said she was fine. However the nurse disagreed and sent her to the hospital. She had COVID. So many bad experiences no more needs to be said.

I went to Brookdale Wake Forest. The girl there who I talked with was very helpful and nice. She showed me around and took her time with me. She did a good job. When I went, they were having some type of exercise. The person had the residents engaged, and she seemed to be good walking with them. They seemed to be enjoying it and enjoying her. It was early in the morning, so it was in between breakfast and lunch. It was a one-story, which I liked. It looked clean. It had some places that felt kind of open like their activity room. She answered my questions. The marketing lady was pleasant and helpful.

Brookdale Wake Forest was nice, it was my number two choice. It was nicer, as far as a newer, cleaner, just overall appearance of it, and also a little bit more expensive and farther away for me, location-wise, which is the reason it wasn't number one, but it was nice. The apartments were very nice. It was very clean, very new looking, updated, and very well organized and clean. They have a really nice courtyard in between, in the middle of the buildings and they have chickens there, chicken coop. That was a nice, pet therapy kind of thing.

We moved Mom here in Nov. 2018 from out of town and couldn't be more pleased! Mom is in the Clare Bridge Memory Care unit. Ahana assisted with the tour and transition and she made sure Mom had all her documents done correctly and even called the previous facility on several occasions for us to get the needed information. She is a rock star. All of the staff is wonderful and they know the families. It's a smaller set up which is perfect for dementia patients. Shiloh (the Activities Director) is awesome. You know she loves the elderly residents and it shows. She meets with the residents each morning in the living room to talk about current events or topics that the residents want to discuss. She's always smiling and engaging. You can tell that she loves her job as she is always planning outings...Krispy Kreme, local restaurants etc. to hamburgers cooked on the grill outside and lunch out on the patio. The holidays are another excuse to have fun, parties and celebrations and dinners too. Mom has absolutely thrived here!

Brookdale is a nice facility and it has assisted living and memory care units. The staff is very good, but the facility is a little older. It's clean and the amenities seemed to be pretty standard.

My brother was at Brookdale Wake Forest, and it was nice for amenities, but the staff wasn't much better. They had less staff. It's very nice, but it's just too expensive. The food and the amenities are very good. Everything about it is very nice, but the staff is not any better.

We did visit Brookdale Wake Forest, and it was a wonderful place. The one thing I liked about it was it was smaller than a whole lot of them, and the age group of people was more vast; the youngest tenant was like 60. It just felt warm like a real family home where people got to know each other as opposed to a huge facility. I saw two rooms, and the one I really liked had a separate room in it. It was not large, but it was fine for someone who doesn't get around very much. It had a little sitting area where you put a couch, and a little sink, a microwave, and a little fridge. And then, the bedroom had good light and a bath, and I thought it was really nice. I didn't try the food, but I did see the menu, and they were like celebrating an event with hotdogs, this and that, and the other. And people seemed to really enjoy it. I met a man in the hallway who said he'd been there for a really long time and that he loved it there. There were lots of activities. In fact, they had a really nice shuttle bus where they take people around to local activities that the community provides. They took people to farms or outings, and they would take them for hotdogs at this famous hotdog place. There was a library right across the street, which my mother-in-law would just absolutely love. They had a beautiful garden where you could sit outside, and one of the members of the facility was the one who took care of it. It was just really lovely. Our only concern was that you have to be a certain level of care. It assisted living, and then they have a really nice Alzheimer's unit -- and I was really impressed with the people who ran that and their background -- but if you were going to deteriorate to nursing care, you would need to leave and go somewhere else. For what they do, I would give them a five. I would stay there.

My dad is in Brookdale. I like because it is homey. The staff is good. I like them a lot. We go to their Luau where they have fire dancing and all kinds of music. I go in there on different times, and there are always some sort of activities whether they are watching movie and having popcorn or simply reminiscing. There is something going on always. My dad likes it. He has dementia, so it is a little more complicated for him, but he considers it as home at this point. It is a secure place. There is a school right behind it. There are woods where the residents can see deer out their window. It is right across the street from a library and almost next door to the senior center. It is in a small town, but everything is right there, and it was eight miles from a hospital.

I visited Brookdale Wake Forest (Formerly Carolina House of Wake Forest). It was a nice place, and the rooms were nice. They had crafts in there, and it seemed like they were taking them on a trip. I found them loading on a bus going some place. The people were friendly. They had a section for dementia patients other than assisted living, and it was secure for the patients. The rooms were clean. I would recommend them.

Brookdale Wake Forest (Carolina House of Wake Forest) was a nice community. It was certainly pleasant. The staff and the residents were interactive. I did not think they had as many activities, and the facility was older. One thing I did not like about it was they allow smoking. The rooms were smaller. I think they could upgrade it a little bit.

I liked their friendliness, and it was obvious that the residents like each other. They seem to know each other and care about each other, and the residents I talked to were happy to be there. Carolina House of Wake Forest is a happy place. It's kind of like being with family, and it felt more like home. I just didn't think it was quite as well kept, but it was not so bad that I wouldn't go there myself if I had to. I would like for them to spruce it up just a little bit.

Carolina House is a very wonderful place. It is a smaller place with I believe to be about 50 residents. The lady I have spoken with there was very helpful in providing information. She was extremely friendly. I found the place to be very warm and inviting. The units seem to be par for the course from what I have seen. I was more interested in a single studio. It seems to be price wise par for the course. It seemed to be a bit larger, and it looked nice and well maintained. There were a couple of people hanging out in the dining room because someone was there playing the piano. The dining room is nice. It's a nice sized dining room, and it has a nice view of their courtyard. They have several different activities. I had a glance on their calendar, and one of the activities for that particular day was a group had gone out shopping at a local large store. There were pictures hanging on the wall where they had a cruise ship party at the facility. That was rather interesting to look at those photos. I thought that was a nice type of party to have for the residents.

I am in the process of finding the right assisted living option for my widowed mother because her physician said she should no longer live alone. During the past 3 weeks, I must have visited 10 options in the triangle and this home was the clear winner for me. I started out thinking a new home was better, but I was pleasantly surprised after visiting this home. This place is well established and seems to have employees that really care about working with seniors. It really has a clean, warm, and happy feeling about it.

My parents liked Carolina House of Wake Forest. It wasn't really large, but it looked very clean, and the rooms were nice. It is old, but clean and it would probably be nice if they could update some of the wallpaper. When we visited, there were a lot of people outside, and they have some group activity going on. It was not that depressing. The people we met were very nice, really friendly, and very helpful, answered a bunch of my parents' questions, very knowleadagble about the facility and what it had to offer.

I've been to the Carolina House of Wake Forest. My first visit wasn't very satisfactory. Somehow, the fire alarm went off and the noise was so awful. It was driving me crazy and I couldn't wait to get out. The people in the Alzheimer's unit can't get out and then I heard somebody saying, "we can't turn it off until the fire department gets here." Other people who were ambulatory and other residents were being helped outside, but not the Alzheimer's patients. It's the nature of the disease that I really cannot leave my mom alone, but there didn't seem to be anybody rushing to help those people outside, so they didn't have to be victims of that ear piercing noise. It was very uncomfortable. The place itself was clean, I have nothing negative to say about that other than I had a problem with that fire alarm. We had a later contact and I told them how unhappy I was about the experience, and they asked me to come back, but at that point I've decided to continue on with mom at home for as long as I possibly can.

My mom stayed at this facility for over four years until her dementia progressed to the point that she passed away. Carolina House was the perfect place for her. She stayed in the Alzheimer's and Dementia Care unit. Since she was coming to this from 35 years of living at the same house, I was concerned at first that she would be unhappy or rebel at the change. However, that was not the case at all. She really enjoyed being with the other residents and doing all the activities that they did. She particularly liked the musical activities. She was confined to a wheelchair for the most part due to a degenerated hip. The Carolina House accommodated that very well, with wide hallways and doors. They had a nice dining room inside the dementia unit, with tablecloths and nice dishes and silverware.The staff was friendly and attentive. They got to know my mother and involved her in the activities that she liked and ones that helped her get the appropriate physical and mental exercise. They did a good job administering her medicines.I was very happy with our experience with Carolina House of Wake Forest, and I am appreciative of the way they took care of my mother.

Our church group frequently visits this assisted living complex located in Wake Forest. We have several long term members of our community who have now moved into Carolina House and they are enjoying the security that comes with professional, personalized care. The buildings and gardens at this property are designed so that they immediately make you feel at home. There are individual, private apartments with kitchenettes, baths and bedrooms. The open floor plans give a spacious feel to these rooms and there are special features such as the easy grip faucet handles and other bathroom fixtures that add extra convenience for the senior residents. Community involvement is always encouraged and the residents often prepare crafts and home baked goodies to sell as a way to raise funds for charity. I also like the fact that there are so many different activities that are offered during the course of a day. In addition to these events each resident is free to come and go as they wish. If someone wants to go shopping or to a restaurant, transportation is available and an escort can even be requested. No one should ever feel bored because there is always something new and different to discover.

This facility really cares about its residents. Providing them with great care. I once saw a staff member bring fresh cut flowers to a resident who in recent days had gone through a personal issue that really made her sad. The smile on this residents face when she received these flowers was priceless! Its not a large facility and is quite small. They offer the residents to go on outings and to get out into the community. The small size of the facility doesn't seem to allow the residents the opportunity to be alone unless they stay stay in their rooms.
