Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Sumter

I visited this facility

I visited The Sterling House. The people were very helpful in giving out the information I needed and they gave us a tour. But I didn't know was that you need to furnish your own furniture. But I guess that they would want you to make it feel like a home. My folks liked what they had seen in Sterling House. I supposed if everything would work out, my folks would go there.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

Sterling House seems like a good place for my father. We moved him there July 28th, I think. The staff there is very nice and courteous. They helped me through the process and it was a good experience. My father has a studio-type room and he likes it. It is more than he needs. The living environment of this place is really nice. The hallways are wide. My father can navigate around pretty good. With regards to food, I haven't eaten there but I talked to my dad and he said that it's really good. In terms of activities, I do know they have a person in charge of all the activities, but I'm not exactly sure what they do.

Friend or relative of resident

Sterling House of Sumter has proven to be a wonderful assisted living setting for my great-aunt. As her health got worse she began the search for a place where she could live a full life but there would be some around the clock assistance if something went wrong. At Sterling House she is thriving among a group of active seniors. She has made many new friends and her best childhood friend is now living there as well. Our visits to this assisted living facility have all been positive and we have been pleased to see that the buildings and grounds are always kept clean and neat. There is even a beautician on-site who fixes our aunt's hair once a week. 'Gotta keep up appearances for the men' is what she tells everyone. Bingo, card games and other activities are always on the schedule. In fact it seems that she is busier now than ever before. Painting and drawing have always been some of her favorite hobbies and luckily she is encouraged to continue her artistic pastimes at Sterling House. She has even gifted other residents and staff members with some of her artwork. The food is fresh and always looks very appetizing but we have not tried any of the guest meals at this time. Have to admit the grilled chicken and asparagus looked and smelled great during our last visit. According to our aunt, she could teach the cooks "˜a thing or two in the kitchen' but still she admits that the food is very good. Maybe the staff will allow some of the seniors to assist in the kitchen one day soon.
