My mother is living in Brookdale Club Hill in Garland. We are very impressed with it. My mother is mainly impressed with the size of her individual living space in her two-bedroom cottage. That's what makes the difference. They have a calendar of events, and they have different people coming in to entertain them. They have an art room and a ceramics where you can go in and make crafts. My mother has done bridge and bingo. They have full-service dining, which is nice. It's good. She is OK there.

We just moved in to Brookdale Club Hill yesterday. It’s been good. We haven’t been here that long, but we’re enjoying it. The staff is wonderful. They have bingo and sing-along. Our room is gigantic compared to what we were in, and it is wonderful, but they could improve on better communication between staff.

We visited Brookdale Club Hill. My mother did not like it because it was not updated enough and would not let her smoke. However, they were very nice and showed us around. The food was excellent. Brookdale Club Hill would have worked out best but because my mother smokes, it was not something that would work for us. We were trying to find a place that had a patio where my parents could sit outside and enjoy some fresh air. This place was very scenic with lots of trees and thought it would be something my parents would enjoy. The people there were very nice. It had pretty much everything we needed. Plus, they would administer and keep up with all the medications. When we needed new prescriptions, they would have to write it for us, so we were very excited about that. Brookdale was a lovely community.

My mother is at Brookdale Club Hill. We moved her there last April, and she is quite comfortable there. The accommodations are nice and spacious. Her biggest complaint is that there's not enough closet space. The grounds are beautiful. The staff provides excellent care. I have eaten there, and the food was quite delicious, but my mother sometimes complains about it. With regards to their activities, they have group games and little groups that come in and entertain them. They have different parties, and they invite family members. Transportation is provided back and forth to Walmart if she wants to go. Overall, I like the place, and I think it has everything that she needs.

Brookdale Club Hill was very nice; I really loved it. Both the employees and the community were very nice and welcoming. It was clean, and they had a lot of activities going on in there. The food was good, as well.

We moved to Brookdale Club Hill and like it a lot. We like the general atmosphere, the surroundings, the landscaping, the activities, and everything that the facility offers. We have a two-bedroom, two-bath apartment. Their food is very good, and the dining situation is like eating in a hotel dining room. I’m more than satisfied with the staff; they’re really nice, friendly, helpful, and very accommodating. They have exercise class in the mornings, bridge once a week, arts and crafts, lots of concerts and lectures, and the beauty shop is really good.

Brookdale is the one we have the most interest in at this time. The facilities are attractive and well-managed. They have an assisted living unit as well as independent living units. They have a restaurant type dining, and they have a menu to choose from. They have a pretty broad program, they take them to various locations, and there is something going on every month I believe. In addition, they have in house activities.

Dad really seemed to like the Brookdale Club Hill as it was really nice, and they were very helpful. She did show me one room and it had been good, it wasn’t too big or too small. They had reading and a pool also. It all seemed pretty good to me. What I like the most was the fact that in the bathroom, if something happens and dad needed help, he had a cord where he could pull it, and it would signal them that he needed help, and also they had a button where every morning he would have to push the button to let him know that he is OK, and if he didn’t push that button, they would send someone to come check on him.

Preston S. and staff were wonderful and caring with my parents. Moving was very difficult, especially for my mother. Preston and staff came in, took care of minor details that needed to be addressed in apartment, finished helping mom unpack and hang up clothes, hooked up TV to cable, and more. Brookdale Club Hill went above and beyond to help my parents move so much easier! What a wonderful place and many thanks to all!

Brookdale Club Hill has a lovely setting. There are a lot of trees on the grounds and moats, bridges, and walkways built over the waterways. There are ducks and fish that are in the waterways in the summertime. You occasionally get to see blue herons. You have a choice of three entrees each meal, which are very well prepared, and snacks are available at all times. They have a number of different programs and activities to help encourage the residents to get out of their apartments and take part and to help them make new friends. The people are very caring and very conscientious about their jobs. They're very quick to respond if there's a problem. The activities are very varied. We have everything from putting puzzles together to having excursions, going out to different places and shopping. They do have doctors that come here to see clients who are not able or do not wish to leave the property. They also have podiatrists and other specialists that come. There is a library and a room for painting, and they do try to accommodate most of your wishes -- i.e., if you like to sleep late in the morning. It's not a regimen like you're in the military. There are mailboxes in the building that you live in, which are locked. There are several people that have lived here for a number of years, and some of the employees have been here for a number of years. In the way of food, just last week we had prime rib, and lobster tail a few days before that. We frequently have fried or baked catfish and salmon. The food is good. The employees are very helpful. I would recommend it highly. It's a type A facility, and you must be able to evacuate in 15 minutes under your own power. Otherwise, you can't live here because they don't keep enough employees to help a lot of people out of the building. I've been here for almost three years now. They offer you here a storage area inside the building, and you have your own lock and key. They also offer covered parking, which is an extra charge. They do also have someone from outside that has trained dogs to work with seniors, and they bring them in so that we have someone to pet.

I am in the process of moving mom at Brookdale Club Hill. This place is socially active for lonely elders. The food is excellent, and the ground is magnificent. It is a 27-year-old facility, so the trees are all great. The property is kept up. It is a beautiful little facility, and I think she will be happy here for many years.

It has been wonderful for me being here. We have been running into the people visiting with them. That is like air to me. I am pleased with this place, but there is no way any human place is totally perfect, but I feel "full" like I'm living my life; it is just in a different place. We are free to move about. They do have a safety button, there are two in this apartment, and we report in everyday so that they know they have heard from us or they'll come. I'm very pleased because they have been responsive to any requests that I made. Everything is painted beautifully and is clean as a pin. Food is pretty good. They would deliver it. All in all, it has been going well. They have all kinds of activities going on all the time. They have a whole building, and we can go in there and makes things -- i.e., they have hobbies, card games, dominoes, bingos, and bridge. They take bus trips to places. It has been wonderful. I would just have to say I'm grateful to be here. I have a wonderful apartment. I just love it. It is very homey and very cozy. I just couldn't be more pleased. Everything is kept very clean. The buildings are spotless at all times. It is beautiful. They have living rooms in every building, and they have an organ in there in each one, and they have TV. It is a great gathering place.

Everything is doing fine at Brookdale Club Hill. We just have elevator problems, and they're getting that corrected. I have leg and back problems, so it's hard for me to get up or down. They try to accommodate everybody, and they have to bring the food up to the floors. We have an area where we have sing-alongs, and people get together on our floor. They put tables up here for us to eat at right now. I suggest to keep the elevators running. That's our main concern over here. The services are great, and they really want us to be one happy family here. The help here is really good. There is a good rapport between the nurse's aides and the therapists. They want everybody to be content and happy. In my case, I don't make $5000 a month, so I can't pay that much if I rent here by myself.

I was familiar with Brookdale Club Hill as I grew up close to where it was located. I didn’t have much interaction with a lot of the staff -- just the sales director -- but he was very knowledgeable and helpful. The rooms were spacious with nice views from the balcony. I was not able to eat there, but my father did, and he enjoyed the food. They do have games for the residents and a craft room. They also go out on outings.

My impression after I visited was very good. The representative that took me on a tour in the facility was knowledgable and personable. The staff was very agreeable and welcoming too. I enjoyed the setting especially the room setting which was very pleasant. It was really beautiful. However, I felt like it might not be appropriate for my mom because she is less mobile and is not willing to walk independently. Because of our reservations about her mobility, I felt like that might not be the best setting for my mom. I think it would be an excellent experience for someone who is stronger physically and enjoys the walk to and from the various buildings. They did have a physical therapy center though which allowed outpatient activities. I really wanted my mom to get involved with that. We didn't see the place as a potential place for her in the future. Consequently, we decided not to go ahead and pursue it at that time.

It is a nice place. My mother likes it. The staff had been wonderful. She gets a lot of help, and they all seem very sweet. We don't have any problems. Her room is kind of small, but it is enough room for her. I have seen on their schedule that they do have some exercise classes. She likes the food and the choices. They give them choices and it seems to be a good variety. And, she loves the desserts, so I have not heard any complaints about the food.

My father-in-law is here. We chose it for him for its location and the facility itself: the amenities, the size of the unit that he is able to stay in, what they offered, and how beautiful the estate was. The rooms are big. They have a kitchen, two bedrooms, living and dining area. This is definitely the best of all that we looked at.

It was really cool and I liked it a lot. It was very unique and elegant. It was also very affordable. For only $1,700 you could stay there and you could eat all those free food. They had balcony. They had a swimming pool. They had a bar and a party room. It was not like anything that I had seen before. They had individual apartment with one bedroom, one bathroom, one living room and one kitchen. They could cook in it. It was like a real apartment. You could also eat in their main dining room, which was gorgeous. However, it was independent living and most of the assisted living were taken out by the people who started at the independent living. So, it was hard to come in from the outside to the assisted living because you had to start out as an independent living person. It wasn't also not a good fit for my mother because everything was far from the main dining hall.

I went with my sister to look at this community. It's beautiful and we both loved it. It was clean as a whistle and she and I are both pretty particular about things. The staff seemed to be very nice and the rooms are very good size. We were looking at a 2-bedroom, 2 baths. Her main thing now is since she fell, she needs a walk-in shower and they're hard to find. It was really very nice.

My father is here. This place is like literally 5 minutes down the road for me, so it is much more convenient. He moved in there last Saturday. A lot of the reasons why we chose this place was just the convenience of this place to where I like but I also like the surrounding around it. The grounds are just wooded area and they have a little pond there. I also like the people and everything. Everything is clean. The apartments are really nice. They're very accommodating and very nice. The staff has been very friendly and very helpful. It's early yet but I'm hoping that continues to be the case, but so far so good. I did taste their food last Sunday and it was pretty good.

My father-in-law really likes this community. He heard about it and wanted to check it out so we visited this place. It is in the area not too far from where he lives right now in Garland. It was a very nice facility. There was a creek there that runs through the area and there were also lots of shades, which was really nice. This facility is also wheelchair accessible and that's really nice as well because my father-in-law is in a wheelchair. Regarding accommodations, unfortunately, they didn't have an apartment where my father-in-law could take his little dog with him. However, they did have apartments which were already furnished with a refrigerator and a stove. They're not that big though. What I like best about this facility is the fact that they will actually check on you and make sure that you're taking your pills and that they have a 24-hour emergency response where you can hit a button there in your apartment. And plus the fact that the cafeteria was a very nice place where you can sit and socialize. It would be perfect for my father-in-law. It was Sunday when we visited and we didn't call for an appointment, but a lady there helped us. She even invited us for brunch. They had a fabulous setup where you can have lunch or breakfast. They had all kinds of nice foods and they're very good. The staff was very nice. They went out of their way being nice to my father-in-law. They even have some girls that offered to walk with him and go into the cafeteria. That surprised me. Everybody was just very nice. They have activities set up for their residents. There was something everyday for them to go to. They have dominoes, bingo, scrabble, line dance class, exercise class, jewelry making class, etc. They have Bible studies and worship service on Sundays. Also they would take you out shopping.

Everybody here was nice. However, she didn't know anyone there and she had to walk outside from the room to go to the entertainment and dinner. But the rooms were really nice. It thought it was spacious and well maintained. They had plenty of things to do there. I was able to talk to only one lady and she's nice.

We visited this community and the place was very nice. It was pretty big. They showed us one apartment and it was nice. It had all the things you wanted, the basic things and that's it. I did see the dining room and it was very nice. You can order anything on their menu. They also have a little store where you can buy foods, like milk, that you can bring back to your apartment. They also have different games for their residents. They have a little bus that takes you shopping or to your doctors.

My mother is very happily associated with this community. We chose this facility primarily because of the atmosphere and affordability. She has a one-bedroom apartment that is spacious, acceptable, and fits her needs. I'd eaten there with her when she first went in and she said it was like a five-star restaurant. She's an active senior and they've got a lot of activities that she participates in like she goes to the gym and attends Bible studies.

Probably my first choice. Independant living and can move up to assisted living. Price is right. Close in to where I want to be. A little inconvenient for dining because of distance.

We live in a cottage in Brookdale Club Hill. It's a fourplex. We have our own washer, our own dryer, and our own parking facility. They provide way too many activities. It's a full calendar every day and every evening of the week. They have great program. The staff is very helpful, particularly the entertainment director. We have housekeeping every two weeks and that includes laundry and cleaning. We have our own washer-and-dryer, so we don't have to worry too much about that. Breakfast is included in your rent. We're happy here.

I moved my son into Brookdale Club Hill six months ago, and it has been fine. My son likes it, so it has worked out very well, and he has been very happy. They have a nice dining room where you go and dine. The staff is nice and very friendly. They have things geared toward the elderly, and my son is only in his mid-40s, but they do bingo and go out on trips. There are various activities, a pool, a library, and everything that you would need. The residents are extremely friendly.

I had been to Brookdale Club Hill several times. I had gone to lunch and things there. It was very nice, and I had taken a tour of the place. I met a lot of the people that lived there, and they were very nice too. It was kind of expensive. I looked at all the areas that they had. They had from senior living to nursing home. They had it all there. The place was very clean. The food was great. The staff was very nice. I knew they had a workout room with a pool, or maybe the pool was outside. I was actually looking at the senior living. They had a stand-alone that had a car port with it and two bedrooms.

We have placed my mother at Brookdale Club Hill. We like the physical layout of it. It is very clean. The dining area is very nice. I eat there frequently with my mother. The food is very good. The staff is very friendly and very attentive. One of the things that we like very much is the fact that my mother is able to do all of her therapy there in the facility itself.

Chambrel is a very nice place. They offered more, but it was $3,000 a month. The ones we saw were very tiny. They had a $2,500 buy-in fee. The staff was really nice, but the main lady who worked with us was really pushy.

I liked Chambrel, but the apartments were tiny. They had a tiny living room and a tiny kitchen. They did have a separate bedroom, but I’d like to have a twin bedroom. I would also have to use a public laundry. The people there are very nice. They have activities and a bus service. They’ve got a doctor that comes and visits. They’ve got a regular restaurant with 5 entrees at night.

I went to Chambrel at Club Hill in February to help my sister get settled. We were all pleased with the dining room and the general infrastructure of the place. So far it's pretty OK without any problems. The most important thing for her is she's near her son. The staff seemed quite happy with their positions and very helpful to me and to my sister. My sister says she likes the food. They have a monthly schedule that shows several things going on every day. There is always somebody to get in touch with to explain things or to make sure that every little problem gets solved, so the people have an interest in making it smooth and easy.

My dad and I visited Chambrel at Club Hill twice. It is apartment like. He liked the cottages, but the price was more than he can afford. The staff were very nice. The rooms were okay, not spacious but nice and clean. The activities and food were okay.
