Nursing Home Reviews for Brookside Care Center

Because of stroke, my mother had to go to the hospital. The hospital in turn sent her to Brookside Care Center. My parents are familiar with this facility. My grandmother had Alzheimer's and was there before she passed away. Also my parents themselves had used them before. The facility is a nice and clean. They have a 24-hour staff and I think they're giving great care for my mother. If she has to go to the bathroom, she would just ring the buzzer and they are there within the minute. Mom can have 24-hour care there. She seems to be getting better and getting her strength back. For accommodation, my mother is in a room with a shared bathroom. She has her own TV. They have a dining room. They provide breakfast, lunch and dinner for her. They give her good portions and she's eating well. Usually, my dad joins her for lunch and dinner. Aside from the one in her room, they also have a common TV room. For activities, they do therapy three times a week.

My 84 year old mother was in a very bad car accident back in April 2012 and spent her first week in a local hospital. After that she was transfered to the Brookside Nursing home. I visited her almost every day while she was there for those 11 weeks so I have firsthand knowledge of how she was treated and how the facility was run. Brookside first of all is known in Kenosha as one of the best if not THE best nursing home in this area. It is very clean and the care takers and staff for the most part are A-1. They are very friendly, courteous and caring. There are lots of fun activities for the residents put on by the staff but due to the severity of my mother's injuries she was bed ridden the majority of the time except when she had therapy - so - she could not participate in any activities. As for the food, my mother had no complaints except for a few exceptions. Other than that, she said the food was pretty good and she was pleased overall. While my mother said Brookside was a great place in almost all respects, her main complaint was the time it took for a staff member to come to her room when she pressed the bedside call button for assistance. She said sometimes it would take 15 minutes or more, but many times they would be at her side within a few short minutes. So definitely they need more staff on hand from what my mother said and what I saw firsthand. Also, the grounds of Brookside is very scenic and they have a large cafeteria which overlooks a deep woods where there are deer, raccoons and other wild life. Also - I had a grandmother who stayed at Brookside from 1994 until 2000 when she died. My grandmother also liked Brookside very much and had very few complaints as I remember.

Brookside Nursing Home: My grandmother was admitted to Brookside Nursing home in Kenosha after suffering a severe stroke. She has been in this facility since 2009. They have been very good to work with and deal with in this situation. All of the staff has been very welcoming and nice to my family as well as my grandmother. The surroundings of Brookside are nice, with lots of tree's and flowers. There are a few different wings of the facility, each specializing in different disabilities. The rooms are nice and a decent size for a nursing home facility. The meals are varied and are of decent quality. They have a lot of good group activities for the residents to participate in. There is always a group of people watching tv or partaking in a group activity. Brookside also has various outside activities for the residents to participate in. There are frequent trips to the casino as well as other outings.
