Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Bristol

I am a friend or relative of a current/past resident

My dad is settled at Brookdale Bristol. He’s making friends and doing well. It’s the best place for his health condition. He can’t go without his cooked meals. He has his medicine and a free shuttle. It’s six hours from South Carolina where my sister lives on the beach to go to my dad’s, and it’s six hours from Clarksville for me to go over to my dad. He has a nice big two-bedroom. He has a desk in his computer room and beautiful, brand-new furnishings, which he got to pick out. I think he has the biggest apartment down there. He’s happy. I love the food. My dad loves soup before his meal, and they make homemade soup every day. Everybody comes in to the dining room, which is beautiful. They bring them their coffee, and the bread basket goes around. My dad likes the idea that they give them a menu and they circle what they want out of three entrees. Brookdale is excellent. He had a birthday, so they had balloons and a party.

I’m familiar with Brookdale Bristol since I belong to a senior group that performed songs and music there for them. It’s nice. I think the rooms are fairly nice and somewhat spartan, but they do have some two-bedrooms that are extremely nice. The staff is fine; I know some of the people because I’ve had some interaction with them. The activities are fairly extensive. I’ve been invited to a dinner there, and the food is excellent. The dining area is quite nice and comparable to a quality restaurant.

Brookdale was very nice, and I like the way it was set up. Every day, they have several entrees to choose from for dining and have alternatives and alternative menus to be ordered from individually. What I didn’t like about them was it had more independent living, like a three-story apartment building, and my parents would not do well in an elevator, so they would definitely need the first floor. They were more open and willing to convert the bath tub into a shower.

I am/was a resident of this facility

I have been a resident at Grand Court Bristol for about 4 years now. I have seen many people come and go and many changes. I think the changes that have been made over the past year are exactly what we needed here! We receive excellent care, our food is delicious and looks good and we have great activities. We have a new director and she is outstanding. We also have a new activities director and she has brought life into our program. Everyhbody seems to be excited about what is going on here. I am so happy to be a resident at Grand Court and happy to call this home.

We are just beginning the search to help my Dad find what he needs in this part of his life journey. We were greeted as soon as we entered the building and took a tour of the facilities. We were invited to ask questions and were given a folder with all the information we discussed and which would help us in making a decision. We appreciate all the information we received and the friendly, prompt and courteous people at Grand Court.

They were extremely cordial and informative. I also appreciated that they would work with us on things special to my step father.

I'd been there several times and I was interested in moving there myself together with my wife so the two of us would live there together, but she went downhill a lot faster than I expect so I have to put her to a place by herself.

I'm pleased to say when I visited last weekend I was pleasantly surprised by all of the activity going on. Everyone seemed to be having a great time! I felt welcomed and totally comfortable on my first visit. Thank you for your hospitality!

The outside of this building was absolutely beautiful. It was similar to the castle-style homes that were built in this area in the 1930s and 1940s. When I visited, the only bad thing that I noticed about this building was the lack of staff. Although the few staff that were present were extremely friendly and helpful, for a place of this size and stature, I could only think that more people should be staffed here than I saw. Otherwise, I highly recommend Grand Court.
