Assisted Living Reviews for Cogir of Vancouver

July 15, 2021


I visited this facility

Cogir of Vancouver was wonderful; I like them. We had chosen that one for my father and my mom to live in, they had a 2-bedroom, but unfortunately, my father passed away right as we were moving. I love the management there, they're just fabulous people. I like the care of the management; I think that's a big deal. Also, it feels like a wonderful place for people who want to not just sit in their rooms, it feels almost like a hotel to me. It's awesome. They have a nice restaurant, they have events, I think it's well-done. They offered us a meal when I brought my dad, this time since we had been there before. The first time I went there they had lunch so that my parents could see it together and it was very, very nice. I thought the food was great.

We really love Cogir of Vancouver Senior Living. They're wonderful and we would have placed my mother-in-law there. We would highly recommend them. They were very accommodating, they took their time it was a very good experience. We thought the atmosphere was nice and they just looked like a really nice place to have her go. The staff is very nice they listened, and they were very knowledgeable. It didn't feel at all like a nursing home, the dining room had really tall ceilings it looked like a vacation place they have a big fireplace, and they have a lot of different options for food. The rooms were actually bigger than the other places we looked at, and I think she would have been happy there.

Provider Response

My dad moved into Cogir of Vancouver Senior Living. I think he's OK with the food. The dining area is more like a nice restaurant. The rooms have high ceilings, lots of light, a nice kitchen area, plenty of room, and he's in a studio apartment. It's a very good value.

Provider Response

Hi Sandy! Thank you for taking the time out of your busy day to give us 4 out of 5 stars - what can we do to make it a 5 Star experience for you? Let me know your dad's thoughts about the food, we are always striving to be the best we can be and your feedback is very important to us. As we open up more since the shelter in place, and we can begin to get Covid behind us, our full service dining will come back into place and our selection will be greater than what it is now. So please be patient with us, we are wanting to get back to our normal great dining experience. If you have any other concerns please feel free to reach out to me. Thank you again for your wonderful review, we are so happy your father is in our happy home!

My mother has Ahlzeimer's, and the reason we chose Brookdale Vancouver Orchards was because it's quieter and easier for her. There are only three stories with different levels of care, and it's easy to find areas like the dining room. Everybody is very helpful, friendly, and accommodating. Even the residents are very friendly and all come up to greet you. We love it here and recommend them. She has a large one-bedroom apartment with a full kitchen, washer and dryer, with a balcony, and a view. The rate is cheaper compared to the other place we looked at. The food is available from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., but soup and salad bar are open all day. You can also go in and order breakfast, lunch, and dinner between those times.

This place was great before Brookdale took over at the beginning of 2014. The new company has really ruined this place. It looks great from the outside but inside it's imploding. Brookdale treats it's employees worse than Walmart and is run by a top heavy, penny pinching management that could care less about it's staff and residents. Because of Brookdale this building has lost over half it's staff and they can't find anyone willing to work there. This company keeps raising the already outrageous rent here, while none of it goes to its employees or fixing the many problems this building has. All Brookdale cares about is taking as much of your money as possible, while underpaying and mistreating their employees -- leaving your loved ones needs overlooked and neglected.

My husband is at Brookdale Vancouver Orchards. It goes from independent living to assisted living, then it has a 20-bed memory care locked facility. They have four private rooms and 16 semi-privates. It’s very nice and very clean. There have been some issues related to his medications, so we’ve had a rough couple of weeks getting his meds straightened again, but their caregivers are mostly really good. There’s one or two staff members that this isn't best job suited for them, but in general, he gets very good care. I have been with him at lunch and dinner; it is good food with selections. They have a wonderful activity director. She’s there four days a week and takes them on outings. She does lots of stuff with them and has a wonderful personality. She’s perfect for these people and always has a smile on her face. I’ve been very impressed with how she is with the residents. The room is fine; it’s semi-private, and we were able to take his own furnishings there like his own rocking chair that he had at home that he sits and looks out onto the garden in through the picture window. They encourage them not to spend a lot of time in their rooms. They have a very large family room that has lots of couches and chairs including the lift chairs if they should need them. I’m happy with it.

My parents live here. They moved 2 years ago. My mom;s health and memory has greatly improved. She enjoys activities daily. My father is a leader now among the residents. He has resurrected the newsletter and shows a movie series every Saturday evening. They are so busy and happy they rarely answer their phone, The food is super good. I eat with them every Tuesday after a meeting I have there weekly. I am so happy they have found peace and happiness here. The staff are incredible and my parents are so happy!

When I got to Brookdale, it was happy hour on Christmas, and they were having a good time. It looked like a really fun place. My daughter was with me, and she liked that one the best. Everybody is having such a good time, they have entertainment going on. That was what I like the best about that particular place. They had an extra storage closet, which I thought was good. I liked their studio apartments; it seemed to be fairly good at 410sq. feet. It had this extra walk-in storage closet in addition to the clothes closet, which was nice. It had a little kitchenette. They have exercise, game rooms, and party rooms.

I was very impressed with Brookdale facilities and the personnel. The person who showed us around was extremely helpful and very insightful. I was very impressed with the rooms, the dining is like a restaurant, and their grounds were very clean and well-kept. They have bingo.

Orchard Village was wonderful, bright, and clean. People seemed to be very friendly and engaging; I was very impressed. The dining room was wonderful, open from 7 in the morning until 7 at night and you could go anytime between. They had two trays that you could choose from during the meal time and they also had a salad bar that you could help yourself from. They have waiters and waitresses take your order. They invited us for lunch, and the food was good.

I like Emeritus at Orchards Village a lot. The layout was good. It kind of bordered a little bit on the big side and it also was very cozy. It looked like a lodge in the woods. The ambience of it wasn't like a medical facility or anything. This facility was able to accommodate a two-person assist that we like for my mother. They actually did a trial with my mom to see if she was a one-person assist or a two-person assist. They also had a memory care case my mother deteriorates even more. I was trying to find a place where I wouldn't need to move her again, so that was the next place that I was thinking that was going to do that. I checked their rooms and I like their sizes. They were very nice. They had washer/dryer in the room, which I thought it was very nice. The food was wonderful when we ate there. We did talk about activities. They did have bingo every night and other activities as well. The staff that I met was very nice. I really did like the facility a lot and it was going to be the place she would move into and may still be someday. They don't have many openings but they have always kept that door for us. They kept in contact with us to make sure she's still okay. I like that that they are giving us that personal attention.

I visited Merrill Gardens and it was a cheery place. People working there were very friendly and the residents seemed happy. I thought they had typical activities like they played games and they took them out once a week to the grocery store. I was not sure about the doctor visits, if they transport them. Over all I had a good impression of it.

Mom is now at Merrill Gardens (Orchards Village) and the facility is extremely lovely. I couldn’t say anything negative about it. The staff that I've met have been extremely helpful. I don’t really know much of the activities, but I know they have church, they have games, and they have arts and crafts. It’s been only a month and she has some problems adjusting but it's mainly because she has a mild dementia which was untreated, but I think she gets a little more involved each day. I haven’t eaten there, but the food looks very pleasant. My sister thinks it's wonderful, but my mother doesn’t think the food is very good.
