The staff at Brookdale Foundation House was very helpful, and the cost was a little less expensive, but still getting all the care. We had a meal there, and the food was good.

Foundation House is a great community and a very pretty place. They have vans, and they go to the doctors or take them to the store. They have a little store, a beauty shop, and music there. They have just about anything that she needs if we are not available to help her. I haven't had any trouble with the staff; they seemed fine. My mother has a one-bedroom apartment and a huge bathroom with a big shower, a little kitchen, and just about everything that she needs there. They have a dining hall where she can go to eat if she doesn't cook, and she likes eating there. They have lots of activities, so there's never a dull moment if you don't want one.

I didn’t feel the staff at Foundation House was as friendly as the other facility I went to. We were with two nurses as we toured, and they were dealing with a client. He seemed like he just wanted to get back to his room, but they told him he had to wait for someone to come to assist him. That isn’t what I want to hear, because there were two of them, I don’t know why one of them couldn’t have assisted him. I didn’t tell that they were being very pleasant generally but when you have clients or potential residents come in there to visit, the staff should be very open and friendly to those people. The rooms were pretty decent, and it was a nice facility, but the staff turned me off.

We have committed to a place called Foundation House. It is independent living with options for assisted. We have a cottage there, so we are independent. What I like best this place is the independence, the availability of all of the activities, food and everything, and the ability to move into assisted living when we need it. They have bridge, bingo, exercise, crafts, excursions, transportation, and classes. The staff is very friendly and accommodating.

I had heard of Foundation House before, and so I went there for a visit. The facility is high quality and very nice. The foods are very good, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. I didn’t see any activities, but we were told that they do have some. The cost is pretty high for this facility for us to be able to get a place there.

I like the open concept of Foundation House. I like this facility a lot, but it was way too expensive for us. The people are very friendly. I talked to the residents and they like this facility. Their dining room was very nice.

I visited Foundation House. It was not what I was told it would be. I was supposed to meet some residents there and was supposed to be served lunch, but none of that happened. I was shuffled into a room, left with the woman whom I talked to. We went to see a couple of places. I was quoted prices that were outlandish. I would not recommend that place to anybody.

My mother did stay in Foundation House for a couple of days. They're all wonderful there. The staff, the activities and their residents, they're all great. It is a fine facility.

Foundation House is fine. We thought it was a little like a hotel. The staff is friendly and helpful, is always around, gives us lunch and answers all our questions. The foods were okay, but not outstanding.

While I did not enjoy the prospect of having a family member living in a nursing home, I was pleasantly surprised by the level of devotion the staff had. In many places, it seems like the staff is moderately apathetic-this facility however had workers who seemed to genuinely enjoy their work. The staff was happy to answer any questions I had.While the facility was not the most advanced, and did not have the amenities of some more expensive nursing homes, it did have excellent staff and better than average available activities for residents. The facility was clean and orderly, while still seeming somewhat at ease. While my family member did not seem very enthusiastic about the prospect of living there, after a month they greatly enjoyed it. Having friendly staff on hand seemed to make them feel more like they were with family, not people being paid to help out. I would choose this facility for myself if I ever found myself in a position where I needed to go into assisted living.
