I really liked Brookdale. It had the assisted living and the memory care, but the location was not as convenient for my sister. The lady that I talked to seemed very knowledgeable. Their rooms were adequate. It looked like they had quite a few activities. It was bright and cheerful. I felt like it would be a good place. If my mother needed to move to memory care, she could move there.

My mother stayed at Brookdale Collin Oaks. It was great. They were excellent. My mother is in the memory care facility, and every single person in there was kind to her. They took care of her. They a little had trouble with her food at first because she had to have pureed food. They did that for her. They did everything. All we had to do was talk and explain things to them, and they were always very receptive. I had recommended them to others.

The services were good. They have a variety of different intensities that you would need from full onsite medical care, medication, injections, and stuff like that you would need. They had good meal plans and good exercise capabilities. They went through a pretty good extent of showing how the meals would be served, what would be served, and if you couldn't come to the dining room, how the meals would be brought to you.

We were in here for only a short period time. We may have put him there until we saw the other one. I really can’t say anything negative about Collin Oaks. I think they would have been fine, too. I just felt that the furniture looked a little more worn. The hallway seemed to be narrower. The rooms were smaller. It would have been a little less expensive but we felt like the other one had a more open feel to it. We only talked to one person who showed us around. She seemed to be very nice. The residents seemed to be very sweet there, too. I’m sure they would have been fine for him.

I visited a friend. We liked it that they're a little smaller than some other places. They only had one bedroom and didn't have any 2-bedrooms. What contact I had with the staff was okay. My friend seemed to be happy there.

My mother-in-law is already in an ALF. She moved in there September 1st. This is our choice because it is close to our house and because she likes the atmosphere there when we first visited it. Right now, she has the biggest room that they have available and she is pretty happy with it. She also likes the food they have there. Regarding activities, she is interested in playing cards, dominos, etc. They also have courtyard for them. The staff is very friendly and very attentive.

I was impressed. It was on top of the list if my mom would move in to a facility. The facility was clean and the staff appeared friendly. The residents seemed happy and well-taken care of. When I went to visit, someone came and sang for the residents.

I visited this facility

I toured this facility on a behalf of a patient. The facilty looked and smelled clean. Every employee I passed was friendly and smiled. The residents I spoke with were very happy with the facility, the activities and the food. Anna was bright, knowledgable and personable. She knew the name of every resident we passed. I was very impressed.

I toured the facility and found it very warm and cheerful. It was clean. There were a lot of activities planned throughout the day. The dining was bright and spacious. There is an inner courtyard where they have cookouts, gardening activities. It is pet friendly. Patients can transition to memory care if needed. It is not the newest facility in our area, but I think that the people are very professional, warm and caring.
