Memory Care Reviews for Brookdale Mount Vernon Drive

February 10, 2012

By Caring484050

I visited this facility

What an enchantingly warm cozy facility. The facility had the fire roaring and witnessed some of the residents enjoying Coffee and Tea by the fire. It was nice to see them simply relaxing and enjoying the fire. The staff was friendly and attentive to the residents as well as to any guest whom walk into the lobby. Staff was eager to help and answer any questions I had. The residents were happy, bright and alert. There are so many activities to do that they are not able to participate in all of them. There are shopping trips, Movies, Concerts, Plays and Religious services. On campus they offer Arts and Crafts, Exercise classes, Bingo which was going on during my visit and they were quite animated. I enjoyed watching how competitive Bingo could become. They were having a blast. The dining hall is nicely decorated and the smells coming out of there were intoxicating!!! The smells alone made me want to move in. The chef should be awarded on smell alone. I ate some of the Vegetarian Entree and it was excellent!!!! The residents said the food is wonderful and they were rushing to dinner when I was there. So I guess that is an excellent sign. This is more of a resort than an assisted living facility. These residents are on leisure time having the times of their lives. I was extremely impressed with this facility. The rooms are huge and beautifully decorated. I would place my loved one here. Worth your time and consideration to take a tour you will not be sorry.

At Brookdale Mount Vernon Drive we know that memory losses due to Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia are progressive and residents' needs are continually changing. That's why we provide balance in our residents' capabilities, personalities, and preferences to create daily routines that enhance their spirits and increase their sense of purpose. We believe the amount of satisfaction our Alzheimer's and dementia care residents receive from the tasks that fill their days goes a long way to maintaining their sense of purpose and overall satisfaction with life. An integral part of this is our promise to encourage each resident to find Daily Moments of Success. To help our residents achieve these moments, our associates receive the tools and training needed in such key areas as specialized dining and the ongoing monitoring of healthcare and behavioral needs, to name a few.
