Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Bowling Green

July 05, 2012

By c.a.v2000

I visited this facility

Where to start well when you first drive up to the facility it looks beautiful the building design is great.the lawn is well manicured,and all the trees are perfectly manicured as well.So right off the bat when you pull it is very welcoming which is great.Then once you enter the facilities it is nice and clean well designed. my grandma loves the place it has a very good dining area her room is spaciest and comfortable.Everyone that lives there is kind well at least the people we have met are nice.The staff is very kind and pleasant whenever you she needs help they are fast and try there best to help to her satisfaction.the only negative that comes to mind is that last summer there was problem with my grandmas air conditioning and it took longer then we would have liked to get the problem resolved.But on the positive side they where vary apologetic and did there best to make it up to her.So in closing I feel this facility is great and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good assisted living facility.
