Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Ennis

April 01, 2014

I visited this facility

Sterling House is made in a square, but in the middle, it's like a garden. It's grass, but you can go outside, and you can just sit. You don't have people coming in off the street. It's very tranquil. I had my mom living there a number of years. What I liked when I went is some of the same staff was there when my mom was at Sterling House. I think that speaks well for it. They have 3 different room choices, but all of them are single occupancy. There's the smallest, which doesn't have a separate living room. The middle size has a living room space that's attached to the bedroom. The larger one, there are no doors between the living room, but it's more defined. When my mother was there, I ate lunch with her frequently, and the food was fine. They allow small pets. There's a fellow who comes in and plays his guitar, and they do a sing along. They do some arts and crafts, some card games, and bingo. They have a mini-bus, and you make trips to Wal-Mart and to the grocery store. Family members are free to come and get you and take you to the restaurants.

I visited Sterling House. The staff were very nice and very accommodating. They have a beautiful yard and it's really relaxing. You can see that the residents are well groomed and I guess they are eating the right food. The dining area is very spacious and it's like a restaurant, I must say. I like the place because they have a home-like environment. Two of the lady staff that I spoke with were very nice and tried to tell me a lot about the living lifestyle in the community. The only thing that I wasn't able to get this facility for my mom is their pricing. They were out of my range, that's why we didn't use them for mom. But it is a very beautiful community.
