Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Farmers Branch

I visited this facility

I liked Brookdale, but my mother has very limited funds, and they did not have anything that would help her. It was something local that I looked at. It did not have the financial assistance that she needed, it was not available there, and it was not her hometown.

Brookdale Farmers Branch was a beautiful facility. It was very pleasant inside, and the decorations were nice. It was not crowded, and it was very clean. The rooms were very nice and lovely. The staff was very fantastic, and they have different activities. The food was very good, and they have different choices to pick from. The dining area was very nice, and it was very bright. The waiters were wonderful.

We moved Mom at Emeritus at Farmers Branch. We chose this facility because of the price, and they take Medicaid when she runs out of money. They will keep her and help her file all the paperwork and get ready for that. Everything has been just right so far. The staff were very friendly. The apartment that she has is great. They offered lots of things for her to do. So far, Mom is very pleased with the food, and she loves her stay there. I had a few issues with getting her medication on time, but I think that is going to be worked out, as she has just been there for a couple of weeks.

I just thought that Emeritus needs to be updated because it might be hard when your parents have a nice home to move them into a place that's not so nice. Regarding staff, they only have one person at the time we visited but she was very helpful. Emeritus at Farmers Branch actually used to be a hotel. So that was another thing. Their rooms were like hotel rooms where you have one room with a bathroom to the side. So if you can picture a hotel room in your mind wherein you have a kitchen, a den, and a bedroom all within that rectangle. It was just a difficulty configuration.

Philip Is Awesome. He Was Born To Care For The Aging. Phillip is such a kind loving person towards all of the residents. I can see how all of the residents adore him. I can also see that all of the employees seem to think highly of him. He has been so kind and loving to Margaret, and she adores him. He may be the Executive Director, but I have seen him vaccuming the hallway, and being hand ons with all of the residents; and helping his employees. Everyone who works at Emeritus Farmers Branch are kind and loving people. So James, Phyllis and Laura want to say Thank You. I am going to post this on a few sites because people need to know what a great place Emeritus Of FB is. Kudos to everyone.

My mom was a previous resident of this facility. I felt like it was a good experience. Sometimes her room would be dirty. I'd clean it. Afterward I'd think why did I have to clean her room when we pay all this money to have it maintained. It seemed that my mother was always laying down when my sister and I went to visit. We ultimately decided that it was easier to bring her home. She seemed to be ending up in the hospital more while she was under their care. Not to mention that the cost was sucking up her retirement.. fast!

When I first walked in it was real nice and clean. I was greeted right away by the staff. The had a wonderful outside area and the rooms were a nice size. There was a nice area for the family to go when the visit and it was pretty full at the time. I liked this place because it was worm and the staff were caring and will to help. The one thing I did not like about it was the lack of activity's the had. I think that they could have a little more to do then just cards,bingo and TV. They could have a dance night or even let them cook something easy but fun. They could also have a night were they can go out to Black Eyed Pea or Apple Bees just to get out and do something new. Over all It is a great place and I would help out again anytime.

Village Oaks is laid out in a square, with 4 halls, one for each side of the square. One of the halls is a secure dementia care unit. Each room is a companion room. Staff ratio here is better than in main section, and staff has some training in dementia care.
