Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Spring Shadows

June 07, 2015

I am a friend or relative of resident

People pay +/- $4000 per month to live here. The place is pretty nice, but the food they serve the residents is shameful. A soup line at the Salvation Army serves better food than this place. If you have a relative or friend who lives here, stop in unannounced for a meal sometime. You'll be shocked. There is no selection of entrees and, if they have a dietician, they should be fired and jailed. Any school cafeteria has better food than this place. It's pathetic and disgusting.

Provider Response

We are sorry to hear that you are dissatisfied with the food served at Brookdale Springs Shadows. We appreciate you taking the time to share your concerns and we would welcome an opportunity to discuss it with you personally and hope you will call us at 877-400-5296.

I visited this facility

Brookdale Spring Shadows was the community that my mom liked the most. I was concerned about maintenance because the property was older than others we've seen. We ran into a resident that was complaining about her water pipes being loud in her apartment. So my concern about that facility is if they have good maintenance people and how old the plumbing is. The size of the rooms is fine, but they have a bit smaller floor plan. I thought that they would meet the needs of my mother. She likes the facility because it is smaller. The person that ran the tour was very kind, considerate, and very professional. She was very patient with my mom, and I thought she was a nice person.

The staff seemed OK. We were just there for a visit, so the reality will be when my mom gets there, and the day-to-day kind of thing. The room was good-sized. It seemed to be kept well. They had some group activities and things. We were there early in the morning. It was difficult to see any interaction. We chose it because it’s located between our family and my sister-in-law.

The Hampton was more multiple-level floors, apartment kind of style building. It was nice, it seemed pretty clean and I did like the location. They seemed very pleasant there, but it seemed a lot more populated and not as closely knit as I would like. The rooms were nice as well. I didn't see anything where it would be not good. The staff was good and everyone was professional. It really just didn't work for me preference-wise at that time.

Hampton looks like a great place. The staff, especially Stephanie, was extremely helpful. From what I understand, they have a lot of activities. The place was very much well-kept and well maintained.

The person who showed us around Hampton Spring Shadows was very nice, so does the one apartment that was available. But it was like one of the larger ones, kind of like their Cadillac. I didn't see anything smaller. It was okay and the place was nice.

I am a past client of this provider

My mother lived at this facility for 5 plus years. She loved the place very much. Many of the workers have been there for 8-15+ years. That says alot! The workers were so good to my mother---they were like part of our family. Nice comfortable well managed facility. The food could have been better, but my mother was pretty picky.

I visited this facility

Upon first visiting, I was impressed by the grounds and quality of the facilities. Most places in Houston are rather dirty (it being a big city and all) and so throughout my search, I have been immediately wary of any place I visited. The staff greeted me cordially and invited me to tour the grounds. Besides being clean, the furniture and other physical amenities looked up-to-date and well-kept. The staff kindly took the time to outline what sort of place Spring Shadows was and what my mother could expect if she lived here. I was impressed by their organization and seemingly quality of care. The other seniors present seemed contented and relaxed and were even friendly enough to speak with me as I was given the tour. Spring Shadows had a number of activities planned for the seniors and genuinely wanted to give the people living there a life much like they had in the outside world. The grounds were beautiful as well. Additionally, the quality of food served here was high and looked to not just be microwaved processed food out of a can. this is one of the best places I visited.

The facilities are all kept very clean, and the staff are quite professional. There are numerous and varied activities daily, and the food is of high quality and of balanced nutritional value. There are three separate buildings to the facility, with two being standard care and the third being for those with advanced dementia or Alzheimer's. There is specialized care for Alzheimer's at the facility, as well, which is excellent. For those who don't require that level of care, there are frequent trips out to shop or simply be out in the world, which certainly helps, as no one likes to be cooped up in the same building without recourse. The rooms are reasonably sized with most being a bit larger than a standard hotel room, and some being quite a bit larger than that.
