Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Oakwell

I visited this facility

Brookdale Oakwell was very nice. It was less expensive, which was nice, because they were running a 20 percent discount. It was older, it felt closed in to me, and it had an older smell to it, but the people were very nice, and it seemed like it was well run. The room they were going to give me needed new carpet, so seeing it as not yet clean was kind of a turnoff. The staff was very good, informative, and knowledgeable.

Our tour at Brookdale Oakwell was fine. They only have two apartment sizes, from inexpensive to very expensive, with nothing in-between. I only met one staff member. They provide transportation except on weekends; they have their own little bus. They take their residents to three or four places during the week if they want to go.

My mother is at Brookdale Oakwell. I'm very pleased with it, and it's very impressive. They've been very good, they've done everything they said they were going to do. Other friends who have family in different cities also with Brookdale have been pleased and thrilled. Everything has been great. The staff is courteous, and the food has been excellent. They come in and clean and take care of everything. The food presentation is great, the aroma, everything's very well prepared, and it's like going to a nice restaurant. They take them out on field trips, play games, puzzles, and bingo. I've walked in there different times of the day, and it's always been the same. They're very kind to people. There's nothing negative to say.

Brookdale Oakwell was a good community. The room was too small, which was a big factor. I liked the courtyard area. The place was off the road and in a quiet neighborhood.

I did go to Brookdale Oakwell for my husband. They were very personable, and friendly. They seemed sincere. They asked a lot of questions on what we really need, and what I want for my husband. They showed me one room where somebody has been living, and it was nice. It had a restroom, and a TV. It was very nice.

Mom has been at Brookdale Oakwell for ten years. Nine years it was managed by another company before Brookdale took over, and that is the reason we left. Before Brookdale, things were well-managed, and the pricing was fair. After they took over, the prices went sky-high. The activities became less, and the food was never improved. The staff were okay. It’s the new management that is not good. The food became terrible.

Brookdale was an OK place and looked fine. I didn’t have any negative comments about it at all. It was clean to me, and the staff was nice and accommodating. The rooms were fine and looked OK. I like the fact they changed the carpets out, and I like the idea that they had memory care.

It was beautiful, but it was way too expensive. It was wonderful; I loved it. The rooms were a little smaller, but they were of adequate size. The staff seemed really friendly. It was just a beautiful place. The dining room was very nice.

Mom has been here for a week and so far so good. They have given my mom extra care. They have a lot of activities. They take the residents to the doctor's appointments. They also take them to Walmart and Target.

I would love to place my husband here if he was eligible because they seemed to be very good, but they don't take patients who had feeding tubes on their stomach. But they seemed to be a very nice place to go. Their rooms were very nice and had kitchen facilities. Their dining room was in an average size. They had lots of activities. What I liked best about them was the fact that they seemed to know all their residents and they were able to personalize things. They seemed to really want to help them. I was impressed.

Memory Care Reviews for Brookdale Oakwell

By Debra

I visited this facility

I liked that Brookdale Oakwell was clean and that the people were courteous. There's a studio and a regular room, and they're equipped with a bathroom and a chair in there. They also have a vanity. The studio can have up to two people. They have 24-hour care there, covered parking, and I like that you need a code to get in, which makes it very secure.
