I visited this facility

Brookdale Kettering was a nice place. It was a good visit. The staff was very thorough and very friendly and showed me around. They had a full spread of amenities.

The Brookdale Kettering community is like nowhere I have ever been. My husband has Parkinson's and goes there once a week for an hour for physical therapy. The first time we went there, we were stunned by the genuine warmth of the residents who passed us, and it was the same every time he went for therapy. We were so impressed with Brookdale that on our way out the first time, I inquired for an apartment even though we weren't looking. We wound up looking at an apartment the next week. I was impressed. After that, the leasing agent asked if she could send home some sandwiches with us because by then it was 4:00, and she would up pack a whole dinner for us. Later, she made an appointment for us to have dinner there, and it was lovely. The food was fine, and the setting was warm and congenial. It's an extraordinary place.

We visited Brookdale. It was nice a facility in a nice area. That staff was very nice. It would have been our choice if we had not found something more affordable. The rooms were medium-sized.

They served us cookies during the tour at Brookdale. The place was just not as new and the atmosphere was not as good as the others. But the people were very nice. It’s also an older facility.

Grand Court is very nice, but the problem we have is the money. It’s just too expensive for us to have my mom going to it right now. The rooms are very well maintained. They’re smaller than what I would hope for because she’s coming from a 3-bedroom house. The kitchens are never very big, but suitable.

Grand Court is very old. I did not like it. The rooms are big and spacious, but the interior was out of date. The assisted living area has no life at all. I didn't see anybody out and about. In the front part where they had the independent living, there were people out and about, but there was nothing going on at the back. It was old, and it was not alive. The person who was supposed to give us our tour was late. It wasn't that long, but it wasn't a good thing. She was nice and knowledgeable even though she hasn't been there that long. I didn't see any interaction between the staff and the residents there. There was no friendly, cordial atmosphere. They were not greeting them when she met them which was important to me. I wouldn't put anybody there. They need to update their facility and modernize it.

I visited Grand Court Dayton for my mother. I only talked to one person, and she was very nice. The whole facility itself was on one level, but it was extremely large and my first thought was my mother will get totally lost going around here, and she probably will end up just staying in her room and not trying to venture out. It was a little overwhelming. They had a very large dining area. The day I was there, there was a man and lady singing and they had a lot of people in there watching; they actually came from other nursing homes to watch. The place was clean. One thing I noticed is, as soon as I pulled in there, the parking situation was not really good. I had a hard time finding a place to park. Regarding location, it is very conveniently located to the new mall, it is close to I-675 and there are a lot of restaurants there.

My grandparents were here for the last 6 months an during that time the staff here were negligent and lazy. Meds were not given on time an sometimes not at all. Diabetic diets were not followed and my grandfather had several falls. Even after multiple trips to the hospital and beig labeled a fall risk he was not given a wheelchair alarm and was left for hours unattended. The last fall left him looking like he was in a boxing match and lost. The Grand court seemed uninformed about the care my grandparents needed and nickel and dined them for services needed. Overall I would put my wort enemy in this or any other brookdale facility. They have been moved to a competent facility and are happy and healthy.

I liked the 24-hour availability of Grand Court. They showed me a one-bedroom apartment, and the rent included two meals. They have transportation for doctor’s appointments. The staff was very friendly, very professional, and knew what they’re doing.

Grand Court Dayton is a very large facility and very clean. The dining room was big, and the gathering spaces were also big. They look more independent overall. The staff are very attentive, and I never felt that they were just showing what they wanted me to see. They also continuously followed up with me. The rooms actually seem fine. It would have been more of what my dad was looking for, and if I was looking for something, I would consider living there.

We like Grand Court Dayton. They have multiple dining rooms. They have a series of smaller dining rooms, so you can eat in groups. They have two kinds of rooms. They have just a bedroom with a little bit of a kitchen, and then they have a one-bedroom. The staff was good.

I was at Grand Court when I had my neck surgery. Everything was great. It was fine, I was comfortable there. They came in and checked on me, gave me plenty of towels and changed my sheet regularly. They let me have my dog there. One even wanted to walk my dog for me. The food was pretty good, but I didn’t really eat a lot of their food. My room had a little kitchenette, so I could have some of my own food. I made a lot of smoothies, fruits and vegetables were always on my diet. The bathroom was great. They had a nice handicapped bathroom, it was easy to use. But, when I first got there, I had to wipe off the counter. It wasn't clean as I like it. Also, you're supposed to have all the things you need in the kitchen, there was not a lot. I didn’t like their pans, it seemed old and dirty so I had to get my own.

Grand Court Dayton was the facility where my mom stayed. The location was very nice. It had a homey environment and she felt more at home. She got a whole apartment for a good price. She liked to look out at the flowers and it had a very scenic view from her living room. She also had a patio where she went out and got fresh air. The food was good too. And the staff was attentive and they did more for her like the laundry and housekeeping every week.

Grand Court Dayton is a great place. The place is clean. If I was gonna be going to a place, I think this facility I would choose. The main thing that caught my eye originally was the little patio areas that they have there. I have both a small dog and a cat and they said they would accept that.

Grand Court Dayton is a five star facility because it is the best in the area. I like the facility, particularly, the menu and the dining, they have a monthly menu and daily menu and there are choices of soup, salads, all kinds of desserts and side dishes and nice selection every day. They got everything here that the others have and more. They only problem I have is the delay in maintenance. But I would recommend Grand Court Dayton to everyone.

I liked Grand Court. It was great. They gave us a guided tour, and the people were very friendly. I like the location. It's right by the multiplex mall and a movie theater. I was very impressed with the people, the activity, and the facility.

Mom loves being at Grand Court. I think they're all very friendly. They keep the residents engaged which is important. But she doesn't like the food. She said it's unseasoned. I think it just needs to be more tasteful. And it would be nice if they have an outside area just to sit. My mom has made a lot of friends there.

My mom is at Brookdale Kettering. I think it's really nice. The people that work there are really nice. My mom has a nice place to live there. The only thing she's ever complained about is the food. Part of that even may have to do with the fact that they're having to serve everybody in their room. The food was better before but since the pandemic, they've been having to eat in their rooms and she said it's unrecognizable. She doesn't like it and that's not very good. I have made that a priority when I check with everybody now about food. Everybody likes different food. My mom is kind of like a bland eater and if it's got onions or too much stuff in it, she's just not a fan of it. She has a beautiful apartment. They have the same kind of activities. They have bingo, happy hour on Fridays, and cards. She's not a big participant in most of those things. Just minus in the food, I would give it a 4, otherwise, I would give it a 5. I think it's a really nice place. It's a lovely community, they're very nice and they're good to my mom. I can call them and knocked themselves out, so it's really nice.

I liked everything about Brookdale Kettering. The staff was very friendly, good, and very nice. I loved the grounds and I liked the location because it's close to a shopping center. They have lots of transportation there for people. The room I saw was nice, but it had a carpet, which I don't like, but they told me they have a room with no carpets.

Brookdale Kettering was very nice. The staff and facilities were very nice. The dining room looked very nice and the residents said it's very good and diverse. They have an activities center and an activities director, and it looked like it would be very nice for somebody who enjoys arts and crafts and stuff. The staff member was very nice, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful. It has some wonderful amenities that some places don't have.

Brookdale Kettering is a nice community with decent facilities. The care staff seems to be knowledgeable, nice, and willing to help out. The rooms are nice and small, but if you're living alone, then that's all you'll need. The location is very convenient. It's an older place, but they keep it up really well. They have a lot of activities going on all the time.

Brookdale Kettering was a very friendly place. They showed me a number of different types of rooms and one of the residents showed us her apartment, which we were really impressed by. I think they had been doing some updating there, but it is a gorgeous place.

Grand Court was large, homey looking, and spread out. They have patios, and it was all on the ground level. The person who was giving us the tour was new, so she couldn’t answer a lot of questions. They were having renovations when we were there, so they were on top of things.

I visited Grand Court when I looked for a facility for myself. It was my first choice because it was near my house and it was just a small apartment complex. It was also in the same neighborhood so I did not have any trouble with the doctors. I would choose this facility when I needed to move.

I went to the facility to visit a friend of my mom who is a resident there. I was pretty much pleased with what i saw going on there. The residents were well looked after. The facility did however need a little sprucing up. There was paint peeling on a couple of walls,but not bad.The care givers did seem to be enjoying their jobs. They were more than happy to interact with the residents. I would say on an overall average they went beyond normal to insure the residents cumfort and needs were taken care of. The medication and meals were delivered ontime and with a smile.
