Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Northwest Hills

I visited this facility

Summit at Northwest Hills Austin was in a great location. Aside from that, they have a locked memory care area as well as what I called "attended area" which was sort of unusual. Most places didn't have that. They did have options for living in an area that really didn't have a locked door but there was an attended entrance. So if somebody would be wandering that could be dealt with. Safety wise, it was not a concern at all. They have really nice rooms. Their residents seemed to be fine. They were all so very interactive with the staff. When we walked by, people were saying, "hi" – both residents and staff. When we were down in the lobby, there was a lady that was attending the entrance and she knew practically everybody by name. If it would have been time for us to go to a place, this one would be a really good option.

I visited this facility

I visited Summit at Northwest Hills because I was looking for a place for my parents. The quality of the facility and staff was good. However, they had limited bedrooms with two beds and I could not separate my parents.

I am a friend or relative of a resident

I have a friend who resides at this nursing home. She is my elderly friend and I visit her twice a month to keep her company. During my visit, I noticed some good things about this nursing home. The residents live in fully-furnished "apartments." The one my friend lives in is very well-furnished and clean. The residents are usually really nice and courteous. I hear that they get together for organized recreation activities. So the residents get to make friends easily and make their lives less lonelier. It's seems like a nice place to live, since the staff there help the elderly with housekeeping, exercising, cooking (restaurant-quality foods prepared by chefs), etc. I haven't met any of the staffs directly, but from my friend's well-kept room, I believe they do a pretty good job for the residents. The staff even help the residents with daily activities such as bathing, taking medication, and even dressing.

Friend or relative of resident

I had a family friend who lived there for three plus years. He seemed to be very happy in the facility since he was a reclusive type person. Staff seemed to take their time when answering residents calls about medicine and other assistance. The facility overall is beautiful! The outside is well manicured with beautiful sitting areas and well decorated inside as well. The restrooms are VERY clean and apartments are roomy with beautiful corwn molding and views from the windows.
