Memory Care Reviews for Brookdale Clarksville

I visited this facility

Brookdale Clarksville community was more geared for patients that had Alzheimer's. They were there when I needed them, but my dad wasn't really at that stage yet. The staff in Sterling House was helpful. They were very good, kind, and terrific in showing me around. The rooms were all clean, but it wasn't just the facility my dad needed. I knew that they had a lot of activities there. They also had a fine security, which was important for memory care units.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

They were very nice, for the most part, but seemed always to be on edge and didn't allow any of the people to interact with each other. I understand their worry that they would harm each other but the people there were so sad. When I came to visit, I ended up actually visiting with more people then just my relative because it looked like they hadn't gotten a visitor or seen a friendly face except those of the doctors.

Upon arriving at the Sterling House, I was greeted by friendly staff. The atmosphere was welcoming and it felt very much like walking into a good friend's house. The Facility is on the smaller side, only room for about 100 people but the clients get intimate and personalized assistance. At the Sterling House, residents can socialize and go out for activities in the community. Staff also help create and specialize plans tailored for the residents specific needs. Each resident gets their own room in an apartment like setting. Staff are on duty 24 hours a day and 7 days a week to help with activities of daily living if need be. The Sterling House is a great place to call home.
