Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Hamilton Wolfe

My mother-in-law lived at Brookdale Hamilton Wolfe. It was worn, it was not as modern, and it was not as up-to-date. The staff members were not very good too. They were not that attentive. My mother-in-law was left on the toilet by herself. She had a stroke and fell and no one knew for quite a while what had happened. My mother-in-law watched movies, played bingo, and went shopping.

We signed up Dad for Brookdale. It's an older place, but it's clean, and smelled nice. They have three meals a day and snacks, laundry service, and housekeeping, at a price he can afford. The salesperson was very helpful and very good. They have transportation available to the grocery stores, outings, and doctors' appointments. They have a courtyard, but it needs to be spruced up.

I was very happy with Brookdale Hamilton Wolfe. The staff was terrific. The rooms were fine but small. It was a clean, small community that was a little too quiet in the afternoon. They were not very active or lively but maybe it was just the time that I visited.

We had a really good visit at Brookdale Hamilton Wolfe. The staff person was very good and very helpful. They were our second choice. The rooms were small, but the dining facility and everything else seemed very nice. They had good game rooms, craft rooms, fireplaces, and a nice courtyard area. There weren’t a lot of people, though. For a facility that has been around for awhile, we were kind of concerned why we did not see a lot of people around in the common areas.

Brookdale Hamilton Wolfe is expensive. The semi-private rooms shared a bathroom, but they had their own separate little rooms for the bed. The place is larger, but you're paying $600 a month more, and the rooms are a little bit larger. It's a very good unit.

Brookdale Hamilton Wolfe had smaller apartments for older people, but my father’s level of care was higher. It seemed like a very positive, well staffed, clean, and organized place. The staff seemed to care about the residents. I liked them overall.

Brookdale Hamilton Wolfe, formerly Emeritus at Hamilton House, was very nice. I liked the floor plan better because they had their own room. It was small connected by a bathroom. I would've personally preferred that. The staff seemed very accommodating. They had a big nice dining area. I would recommend it.

Everything was very clean at Brookdale Hamilton Wolfe (formerly Emeritus at Hamilton House). The staff was very professional. The interaction among the residents and the staff was top-notch. I did like their transportation, which easily flowed. The guests had activities to go to, and if they had medical appointments, transportation went smoothly. I didn't see anybody sitting around twiddling their fingers because things weren't going according to their schedule. The residents were taken care of well and considered so that they would feel at home.

Some of the places we visited, we saw no one around, but with Brookdale, when we walked in, we saw the residents out in programs like in the music room, in the dining room, or walking down the hall. There is just a warmer feeling to it. We are happy with it. We would recommend them to others. My mother-in-law has been there now for a couple of weeks, and we're really pleased with it with their programs. The people that take care of her, we're happy with them too. So, yes, we'll recommend them. We did try the food, and it was very good. They have a board there that has some menu on it every single day. Because my mother-in-law doesn't eat very well, I have asked them to give her Ensure, and they are giving her three a day.

I saw Brookdale Hamilton Wolfe (formerly Emeritus at Hamilton House), and the people I met were nice. The place itself was nice, but my parents wanted separate bedrooms. They would have separate rooms there, but my mom wouldn't be able to go in her room and shut her door. The apartment was nice with laminate floors and separate areas like three big rooms, and it was decent-sized. The staff was very friendly and informative and was asking about our interests. They showed us some rooms where they'll have use of the courtyard, or they might get a birdfeeder.

I currently live in this facility, but have never been pleased with it. The employee turnover is excessive, the food is marginal, and the new management regime is substandard. There are at least twenty other Brookdales in the area, and you are advised to scrutinize this one carefully.

I like Brookdale Hamilton a lot. They have a two bedroom apartment available, and it looked really good. They also offer transportation, which I like. They also have a very beautiful courtyard. Their place is very clean.

We found a good facility. We put my mother-in-law in Brookdale, and we had to take her out within a week. She stopped eating and said that she was there to die, so we just brought her home. Everything was fine, but she would not adapt. The staff was good. They messed her meds up a few times but, overall, I think it was good, and I’m sure within a few more weeks, they would have figured that out.

My mother is already in an assisted living facility named Brookdale Hamilton Wolfe. I like the people. They are very caring. The rooms are very clean and very adequate. It is the right size. I was very impressed with the quality of the food. As a matter of fact, I go eat regularly with my mother there. She gets the main entrée. The grounds are very clean, very well kept, and very well-manicured. They have a calendar with daily activities of different things and different outings. It is very well organized. I would recommend this facility to other friends and relatives.

Brookdale Hamilton Wolfe is a nice place. I had an interaction with the sales person, and she was very helpful and friendly as well. The rooms were very nice, bright, and cheery. It’s very clean as well. We walked through their dining room, and it seemed nice. They do have games, and I think they also have movie nights.

The staff at Emeritus was very, very helpful. They invited my family and my mother to the dining room on our tour there, and we ate there that day. My mother said the food is very good and they made her transition very easy. I was impressed. The room is just a studio, but it’s very spacious. They have exercises. They have bingo. They go shopping, and they take them on bus trips. They have like a happy hour on Fridays where all the residents get together and mingle with a glass of wine and stuff like that. One of the reasons we selected it was because it is very secure and safe. Their door is closed at 8 o’clock in the evening. At the same time during the day they’re open, but there’s always somebody at the receptionist office.

Emeritus was clean. This was the best Emeritus of the three that I looked at. It was very well-managed. The staff was excellent. I managed to schedule my tours around lunch time for a specific reason, and I explained it to all of them. I want to see what they are serving. I want to taste what they are serving because if I’m going to live there, I have to eat that. It is in northwest San Antonio near the medical facilities. I’m a veteran, and it’s close to the Veterans' Administration hospital here. To me, location is a factor.

The main reason why I chose Emeritus at Hamilton because I need two bedrooms for my mother and grandmother. They wanted to be together. To have 2 bedrooms in one room is difficult to find in assisted living. They have a very caring staff. The activities are good but my grandmother does not participate because she's 100 years old. My mother does play bingo there.

Hamilton House is a very nice facility. My experience during my visit was good. The staff was very polite and answered all my questions. They also shared information with us. The residents there were nice as well. They have very nice rooms. I was able to go into a room that was being used at that time. A lady there allowed us to come in and looked at it. Generally, it was a fine room and it seemed large enough. It also included a bathroom and a kitchen. During our visit, we also saw the residents eating and they seemed to like their food. I also remembered that they have a menu and that was nice.

My friend recommended this facility for me because it's a smaller facility. If I were going to pick a facility today it would be this one. I like that they have covered parking for those of us who have vehicles. And they also have a try out program where for $100 a day you can go in and stay for a week or two weeks. They furnish everything that you can use when you live there which is something that I really appreciate. Their rooms are spacious. They have sample rooms set up so you can see different ways to set up your closet and arrange furniture. One thing I didn't care for is that the chairs in the cafeteria have name tags on them, which means they would sit with the same people all the time. I would rather just go in and pick chairs and sit down, that way you can get to talk to more people and learn more about them. When I went there they sat with me at the dining room and gave me dessert and we chatted for awhile. I got to meet some members of the facility. I enjoyed the food. I saw the video room where they have the TV and they said that that's where we can schedule movies. They have an exercise room with exercise equipment. Everybody was friendly. I like the way people are allowed to decorate their doors and show a little bit of their personality.

We visited the Emeritus at Hamilton House while searching for a suitable assisted living facility for my brother's friend. Many of his family members live in the area, so this would be an ideal place for him to live. The outer grounds looked well-kept and pleasant. The staff greeted us and seemed very warm and friendly - which is very important to the family. The foyer was nicely decorated and seemed homey, as did all of the communal rooms, which were spacious, with comfortable furniture. The seniors could easily socialize, make crafts, play games, watch TV and films and participate in many stimulating activities. The library had great books and plenty of room to enjoy the peaceful environment. The residents may also reserve rooms for private parties. The many recreational activities include trips to visit the local and surrounding area cultural and entertainment hubs such as art galleries and museums, eateries and other cultural events, like fairs and festivals. The seniors may take exercise classes such as yoga and aerobics, or use the weight training and other equipment. They may also enjoy the outer walk ways around the building and courtyard. The residents are encouraged to enjoy physical activity as much as possible. The private living spaces were all clean, well-kept and conveniently designed. They take the time to personalize to each resident's tastes. There was a variety of types of food available - for example, meal choices ranged from a complete meals to snacks or lighter fare, for those who wanted it. Staff appeared to make every effort to ensure that the residents were both safe and comfortable. The seniors appeared to be very content in this living environment.

This is a beautiful facility inside and out. They serve good nutritious meals that are also tasty. I had my Dad in here for about a year and I only moved him because his care needs advanced. This is also a great place for an older couple to live a maintenance free existence and it helps the families to know all their needs are being met as well as someone is keeping an eye on them.
