Independent Living Reviews for Brook Ridge Retirement Community

I visited this facility

I liked Brook Ridge. It was very clean and nice. We went there for the 4th of July celebration and had hotdogs that were cooked on gas grills, so it tasted like gas to me. I had been there before, and the meals tasted good. It was a pretty place, very open, and had light-colored paint. I saw the assisted living part of it, The Gardens at Brook Ridge, which was located at the back of the independent living, and it was also nice.

Brook Ridge's apartments were better than others we've seen. The place was nice and everything. The lady who attended to us was very attentive and very courteous. She took us around and showed us everything.

Everybody was real friendly at Brook Ridge. I had no problems. Everything was clean, neat, and very impressive. Price wise, it seemed reasonable. I don't think anything was going on at the time of my visit, but we saw a board of what the activities were available including when they were going on. The dining area, and the facilities looked really nice. There was a place for everybody to stay, go outside to sit, and relax. It was a very nice situation.

I think Brook Ridge is a very good facility because for one thing, they have independent living there, they have a new portion that they built where they have assisted living, and they also have memory care. What they offered when I was initially looking was they have an already furnished respite apartment. In my case, my mother is 87, so when my wife travels, we would like to have her in a safe place; they only charge $75 a night for meals and everything, and that was pretty reasonable. We went over there, and we had lunch. They have their own chef. Mom goes over now because they offer bingo and special events like Mardi Gras. It’s very clean. They have one property manager that lives there 24 hours a day. We feel comfortable leaving my mom there while we travel. I think they offer something for everyone. My mom likes the place. It’s a very affordable facility.

Brook Ridge is really good. It has assisted living and independent living. I liked everything they have there, but I don’t have the money. Everything was perfect. They have everything you need, three meals a day, and they have all kinds of activities. It is a very pretty place, there are outdoor gardens that are very nice, and they’re putting in a pool. Inside, everything is very clean, and they have a lot of people there that live on the property to help you.
