Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Medical Center Whitby

October 09, 2013

By Caring4917

I visited this facility

Sterling House was the least favorable amongst the facilities we visited. The staff was very nice and the facility was clean but it just wasn't really updated. The inside of the facility itself looked old and not as modern. They need to update it a little bit. I would not probably recommend this facility just for the looks of it.
