Assisted Living Reviews for Brookdale Sussex

I visited this facility

I was able to go to Sterling House of Sussex for a visit. I was just there for a short period of time, but the facility is clean. It seemed like they have activities that the residents can participate in. It seemed like the people who are in charge with the meals are really nice. I was able to see their rooms and they were pretty small. For the short time that I was there, I felt that the facility is pretty nice. The staff did well in accommodating me and they have been in correspondence with me since my visit.

Sterling House is smaller and intimate. We were visiting at a quiet time, so we didn't have much interaction with the residents. Right now, my mother is living with me so we're looking for a respite care.

We visited Sterling House of Sussex while in the region looking at assisted facilities for our uncle. We thought the exterior looked very well maintained. The lawns and trees were nicely landscaped, with seating areas and walkways. The seniors could also safely navigate the outside area. The staff was very accommodating. The facility had ample communal rooms for every activity imaginable, from reading in the library, to card games, physical exercise, ceramics and crafting and hosted meetings. We could see that anything the residents might need was provided. The personal trainers are on hand to ensure safety while assisting the seniors in every way they can. The full service fitness center equipment was very nicely maintained, with regular exercise classes. The dining room featured food that looked and smelled delicious. The menus all had healthy food options for all kinds of diets. Healthy snacks are offered whenever residents request them and on a regular schedule. The outside excursions included many interesting cultural events in the area -- which hosted regular music, theater, film and art gatherings regularly. This facility can accommodate a variety of ambulation levels that can be shifted as it becomes necessary. The private living spaces were beautifully decorated with lots of fresh air and light. All units were very well designed and efficient. This is a service oriented living environment for seniors including everything they need. We were impressed with how kind, caring and helpful they were to the residents.
