July 22, 2011

By maggie1

I am a friend or relative of resident

Staff is poorly trained. Management does not respond to concerns. Rooms smell like urine as residents are not changed enough. Can often find residents soaked in urine. Over billed as not recieving what the bill states we should. Not enough activites for residents. Residents are left in wheel chairs all day!!

About Brookdale Brookfield Capitol Dr

At Brookdale Brookfield Capitol Dr we know that memory losses due to Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia are progressive and residents' needs are continually changing. That's why we provide balance in our residents' capabilities, personalities, and preferences to create daily routines that enhance their spirits and increase their sense of purpose. We believe the amount of satisfaction our Alzheimer's and dementia care residents receive from the tasks that fill their days goes a long way to maintaining their sense of purpose and overall satisfaction with life. An integral part of this is our promise to encourage each resident to find Daily Moments of Success. To help our residents achieve these moments, our associates receive the tools and training needed in such key areas as specialized dining and the ongoing monitoring of healthcare and behavioral needs, to name a few.

We provide Alzheimer's and dementia care residents with the lifestyle, housing, and services they need in comfortable surroundings combined with the amenities, programs, and care to help stimulate recognition, recall, and wellness in a safe environment.
