Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Grandon Farms

I visited this facility

I visited Brookdale Grandon Farms. It was very nice, it was big, and it was rather homey. It was just too far away from my home and I knew my mom wanted to be as close to me as possible. It was also a little bit more expensive, but it turns out her long-term health insurance is going to help pay for this. I told them right away what I wanted so we toured the assisted living. It was very good and everybody was lovely. The person who gave me the tour, whose name I can't remember because I talked to a million people, was lovely and very thorough. The director called me afterward to make sure that my tour was thorough and that I found out everything I needed. They checked up with me. It was a lovely facility and had beautiful surroundings, too. I was there at night but it was very pretty and very nice. I'm sure the landscaping and everything would have been just as nice on the day. The apartments had no kitchens or anything. They would provide a bed and I didn't ask about a microwave or anything, but they would help me with anything that I wanted. I would rate their facility quite high, they were good. The staff took me around and showed me the different areas where they had different activities for people and the open areas in the back where there were places for people to gather. There was one place that was like a little library. It didn't seem like a good fit for my mother and that's the only reason we didn't go for it. I can't see anything negative about it. The dining rooms were lovely. They had them set up almost like a restaurant, where they come in and sit down and then they serve you. They had a little bit more choices too, as far as their menu goes. They would have a menu with two entrees and two or three sides. If you didn't like any of that, you had some regular backups, like hot dogs and hamburgers, that they would go to. That's the only place I saw that they had something like that available. That's important for people to be able to have a choice and control of their diet.

Brookdale Grandon Farms is very welcoming. My mother is in a studio and you can decorate it the way you want. It's nice and clean. The aides, the nurses, the food, and the dining area, everything seems well organized. It felt very homey. It's not like putting your loved one in an old nursing home. They said they've had so many new staff and I've been trying to get them on mom's care plan and therapy, but getting that set up is delayed right now. The food is good, and she's very pleased with it most of the time. They go out on joyrides and different trips to different places. I would recommend them to anybody. The only bad thing is if my mother runs out of money, they don't take Medicaid.

I wasn't happy with Brookdale Grandon Farms. My mother wasn't happy there and I wasn't happy with it either. They had one girl to each floor for 30 people. They're short-staffed. They need to hire more people and be more on top of things. They didn't keep my mother's room very clean. Everything else looked nice, but her room was always so dirty. Her bathroom was a mess, too. The staff was very nice, but they'll tell you what they want you to hear. My mother enjoyed the food. The place is beautiful. They kept them busy, but my mother never wanted to do anything except play bingo.

I visited Brookdale Grandon Farms. It was very nice and had the most accommodations. The rooms were pretty large in size, they had individual rooms,and the shared rooms were a fairly decent size. The staff was very nice, they offered me a meal, and that was really good. I know they have happy hour, they have a schedule, and it seemed like they have a lot more to do. It was really clean and the residents seemed very nice to somebody new coming in.

The staff member who gave me the tour of Brookdale Grandon Farms did a really good job and explained everything. The dining area is easy in and out, it wasn't overwhelmingly big, it's open, and off the common area as you walk in. So it's a good design and a good layout. They have different rooms for different talks and get-togethers with the residents. I think they're building a new courtyard outside too.

My impression of Brookdale Grandon Farms was good, but my mom did not like it. Nevertheless, it was everything I thought it was going to be. The apartments were nice. The dining area and the small social halls were great. The outside was very well-manicured and very well taken care of. Their activity levels were awesome. Not having anything to compare it to, I would give it three stars, just because it was nice, clean, up-to-date, and it seemed like everybody was generally happy there. The bad part though was when we started talking about pricing, all of a sudden the fees just kept adding and adding and it priced my mom right out of the question. The staff was nice, very friendly, very cordial, and very informative. However, they had a lot of secrets, like they would talk to each other when they added the price together, but they wouldn't really tell us what they were adding up until they got to the end.

I am/was a resident of this facility

I went to Brookdale Grandon Farms for 2 weeks. Unfortunately, I have a breathing problem and am on oxygen, and after three trips to the hospital in two weeks, they kindly asked me to leave because I was disruptive to the residents. Their facilities were beautiful and fabulous, and I really enjoyed living there. Their food was very good, nutritious, and fairly varied. The room was nice and moderately spacious. I really liked the layout. The staff did an excellent job and provided very good service. Their programs were very good. We had things to do to keep busy, and everyone was very friendly. I really enjoyed it there and didn’t particularly want to leave. I would have stayed there.

Brookdale Grandon Farms is inappropriate for my mom because she needs long-term nursing care, but the facility is very nice. This facility is an assisted living facility.

Brookdale Grandon Farms is nice and within our budget. It’s in an area that my mother is familiar with. The day that we were there, the staff seemed to be very outgoing and friendly. The residents all seemed to be very happy, outgoing, and sociable. When we entered the place, there was a big porch and one of the gentlemen residents was sitting out there in the chair. He said hello and welcomed us to the place. I like the outgoingness and the friendliness, and they seem to be caring. I only saw it one time, but for my one visit, I was very impressed. The food smelled and looked good and had good menus. My mother likes bingo, which they do two or three times a week. They have crafts and provide shopping trips a couple of times a week. They also have the residents wear a necklace, so if they’re in trouble, they just press a button to get help right away, which I like.

Brookdale Grandon Farms was very nice and clean. I liked the idea that it had a memory care unit, which would have been good for my stepmother. The rooms were nice and just the right size, and the tours didn?t take that long. I was impressed by the fact that they have an outing for each individual to do something that is personally interesting to them.

They seemed very accommodating and answered all my questions. My mother has been here a month, and we just finished the month evaluation early July, and everything is going fine. She had a period of adjustment, and they were very helpful during that period. She seems to be settling down now and settling in. She had a one-bedroom in the assisted living she was in before, and we were downsizing her. However, we got a deluxe studio, which is quite spacious -- it's very bright, it has big windows, and it's very nice. They have some scheduled activities. Every Tuesday, they have a joyride with no set destination, and it changes from week to week. They have bingo, games, and happy hour. They have a lot of musical entertainment, and I'm really impressed with that. The menu is OK, but it could be improved. The food level is good. They seem to have an awful lot of the same stuff. The dinner menu is kind of a repeat sometimes of the lunch menu. I'd like to see the dinner menu expanded a little more, a little more balanced with meat, potatoes, and vegetables, instead of just a sandwich. Brookdale Grandon Farms (Formerly Emeritus at Creekview) was in transition, and a lot of the little problems that we encountered were as a result of that transition, but they have a potential to definitely be a 4.

I LEFT MY HUSBAND IN THEIR CARE FOR 2 WEEKS IN RESPITE CARE IN 2014. HE HATED THE FOOD. THEY NEVER DID HIS LAUNDRY AND HE WAS LOCATED ON THE 2ND FLOOR WITH NO HELP. HE NEVER WANTS TO BE LEFT THERE AGAIN EVEN IF IT'S CLOSE TO HOME.

We choose it for my brother-in-law because my mother has been there before. Our experience is very good. The rooms are very nice. The staff is very helpful. The food is good. They take them on bus trips. They take them out to eat. They do sightseeing. They have all kinds of activities. Plus, they have physical therapy and games. What stands out for me is the warmness of the surrounding and the care of the staff.

My mother-in-law is in here. It is close to my daughter. It is a very good place. The people working there are excellent and very good. They had activities like singing during the evening, and they read the paper during the day. They have bingo, walking groups, and a book club. They have numerous clubs. They have outside groups that come in to sing, dance, and do other things. My mother-in-law is very happy with the community. The price is lower than everybody else, and they are better than anybody else. My wife says the food could be a tiny bit better, but I thought the food is good because I sampled it four or five days, and it is delicious. They have a good variety.

It was my choice for my mom to stay in temporarily for her respite care because it was close to home. Everything was wonderful. Their dining area was lovely and the food was good. It was a beautiful place. The grounds and the building were beautiful. Everybody was very nice and helpful. It was the best facility and I would use it again.
