Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Cypress Station

My husband is in Brookdale Cypress Station. I am very pleased with them. They have an incredible staff, and he has a very good relationship with them. They keep an eye on him, know what he likes, and try to follow through with him. We had a Mother’s Day party there last week, and they went out of their way to decorate. I am really pleased with it. They have crafts, exercises, movies, popcorn, and coffee breaks. My husband is not much of joiner. They offer a lot of activities, but he does not always participate. For the most part, he likes the food. He is eating really well and gaining weight. It was clean and does not have a smell. I like that it is right over by the hospital and his cardiologist. It is very convenient.

Brookdale Cypress Station seemed nice and appropriate for what we were looking for. We are moving my mom there so she can be closer to her relatives. The staff was fine. They had a physical therapy room.

Mom was a resident there for quite a while. We were always happy with her apartment...and it was a place she always felt safe. Food was good, prices were reasonable...especially for the space she had (nice little apartment with separate bedroom, TV room etc.. The problem here...and it is a serious one....is what happens if your loved one needs additional attention. We put up with quite a bit (staff stealing jewelry, medication problems...including the last very serious problem) and provided additional oversight just because the room mom was in was her grip on reality. As she required additional care from time to time, staff was not capable or willing to provide this service. Communication was horrible, current on site manager not qualified or capable....too busy defending staffs performance or lying to address serious problems.. This is not a place to put a loved one if they are needing some real individual attention (I'm not talking nursing, I'm referring to help with baths, making sure they make it back to their rooms after meals etc). As I said, this place was fine for a while...and everything was fine as long as nothing was needed. But when it came time to really provide even minimal assistance (it is, after all, an assisted living place) they failed on virtually level.

We’re very satisfied with Brookdale. Everyone seems to be friendly. The most difficult part was my dad getting used to it. Everything else is going fine. My dad chose the studio room. It’s quite spacious, and it looks like it’s well taken care of. The bathroom is actually quite large, with a large shower, and handicap accessible. He has a walker and has difficulty, but this is very easy, and he can just roll right into it. It’s a very nice place. He enjoys the food. He has choices of three hot meals a day. They give them choices for lunch and dinner. Breakfast is prescribed, but it is a large breakfast that includes dairy, eggs -- that’s more than most people can eat. They manage my dad’s medication. That is very important. Every Wednesday they go to Walmart. Dad enjoys that little outing. They also have a lot of games and parties. They’re going to have Thanksgiving dinner and invite the family members to come. They have a very nice little outdoor courtyard where they can just enjoy the outdoors.

My parents were at Brookdale Cypress Station for about three and a half months in total. At first it was OK until they started needing additional help. Some staff told us that they don’t do that there, but the management told us that they could do that. This facility is for people who are able to do assisted living on their own. The staff is very nice, patient, and caring. They do have plenty of activities like exercise and music.

My experience in Hampton at Cypress Station during my visit there was great. The staff working there was persistent. Their rooms were fine, and they are average szed. Based on my observation, they had a few activities. One thing I liked about the place though was it was closer to where I live.

I visited this facility

I had been to Brookdale Place at Cypress Station three or four times. It was very close to our house, and it was very pleasant. The staff was extremely friendly and bent over backwards to help us. They do the patient's laundry for them and they cleaned their apartment. The rooms were very nice and my mother was looking at a one-bedroom unit, but it was just a hair over what she could afford. They were putting new microwaves and refrigerators in the rooms. We had a meal there and it was very good. They had an activity calendar and several rooms for activities, and they were great. They had painting classes and games. They had physical therapy. They had a courtyard that was beautiful. They were dog friendly so mom could have her dog there.

The one that my mom's been at for three weeks now is Brookdale. It is a really nice community, and she seems to be enjoying it there. The people there are very nice. The food is good. They have quite a few activities going on. It is a big, three-floor building, and everything is clean.

My ex-husband was in need of care, so I checked out several places for him. He ended up going to the Hampton. While not cheap, this facility has all levels of care, from assisted to independent, to full service nursing home and alzheimer's care. The food is very good, the level of care is incredible, and the staff all work very hard to care for the patients. I have never noticed a bad smell like so many facilities have. They are caring, loving and really do a fantastic job of assisting their residents. There is always something going on either on the premises or they take the residents by bus to an exciting place for an outing. I can't say enough good things about The Hampton at Cypress Station. Highly recommend it to anyone needing assistance.

This facility had large, well planned rooms. All the landscaping was neatly cared for and the lawns and trees made it a pleasant setting, as did the traditional brick and white wood trim. The decor was traditional, with shiny brass fixtures. The staff was friendly and warm. The residents all appeared well groomed and disciplined. However the cost seems to be floating. They first check the requirements & then decide costs. Due to this my friend who was looking for some rooms for her grandparents felt suspicious & decided to look for few other facilities in nearby location. However, i personally felt her perception for this place was incorrect as I found the residents here looked very content and were well cared for by kind and considerate staff in this living environment. I might try again & convince my friend if she has not settled on any other facility for her grandparents.
