Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Sandy Springs

I visited this facility

The rooms at Sterling House of Maryville were too small for what I needed. The staff were fine, and I liked the location of the community.

I have a family member who lives in this community and we have been so pleased! The staff is so friendly and caring to both my mother and myself. I highly recommend this community to anyone looking for a place for their loved ones.

My mom is in Sterling House and one of the things that I like best is the general feeling of the staff and the residents that are already there. Everything seems to be so positive. Every member of the staff that I run into is very willing to help. They seem to care about the individuals they are working with, which are the residents. They have quite a bit of activities. They have religious services on Sundays, which my mom likes. They have crafts. During this Christmas Season there are choirs coming in. They have a bus service and they have outside activities at least once a week. They also take them to the local mall and to the stores like Walmart and Target. They took a tour of Cage Cove, which is in the mountain here. When we ask my Mom about the food, she said it is delicious.

I visited this facility

Sterling House seemed like a nice place. When I visited there, I saw that the residents seemed happy as they were gathered in the dining area. Although the rate was a little higher compared to the others I visited.
