Welcoming Communityreviewed on: 07/26/2017 by Anonymous
Brookdale Riverside is a beautiful and welcoming community. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We choose Brookdale Riverside because it was more affordable and their fees were more specific about what they actually charged for. The communication is great between the family and the staff. My father -in-law seems to be acclimating to the move. When he first arrived he really liked the food, now not so much. I think he is bored with the food. There are snacks and refreshments available for the residents between meals. They do offer activities, but my father-in-law is not the type who is inclined to participate in activities. They are in transition of getting a new activities director so maybe that will help to get him inspired to try out something new. Shopping trips are available for the residents, my father-in-law has utilized the bus to Dr. appointments and the bus driver is great. We feel very good about the choice that we made.
So many activitiesreviewed on: 11/28/2017 by Anonymous
My mother is very happy living here and comfortable as well. The staff is knowledgeable and competent. We have had no problems with any one. There seems to be no problem with the facility’s cleanliness either. Everything is very neat and organized. They typically assist with laundry and take out the trash weekly. The food that is offered there has great menu options with large portions. My other has had a few complaints whether it is too much food or a bit cold, but she does have to the option to speak with the kitchen staff to try to accommodate her. It seems that they offer everything with activities. They have bingo, movies, an excellent library, a walking path near the grounds, and numerous outing events. I would recommend this location to families looking into various options.
He Was Not Acceptedreviewed on: 08/29/2017 by Anonymous
We were going to go to this community for my dad but then they decided he could not move in. Because of his history of mental illness they denied him.
Great facility but needs workreviewed on: 11/08/2017 by Anonymous
Overall, things have been pretty well. My dad and I toured here (before deciding to move him in) and at first glance, the tour did not go well. I think it was mainly because the girl that gave us the tour was a little bit inexperienced. I’ve had a few growing pains with them that we’re still trying to work through. They’re a little slow going to get things done maintenance wise, I have to tell them a couple of times to get things done, but overall the people are nice and the place is nice. The food seems to be pretty decent and the dining area resembles a restaurant, but the food tends to be a little on the soft side. They give you a menu and you have 4 choices for each meal to choose from, except breakfast – for breakfast, you just tell them what you want, even if it isn’t on the menu, and they’ll make it for you. And if you don’t like the options that you’re given, they’re more than willing to make you something else. The staff is easy to communicate with and very, very pleasant. When I take my dad out and bring him back, they always greet him like they’re excited that he’s back. It’s very sweet. They’ve always addressed him by his name and he doesn’t walk past anybody that doesn’t greet him. The medication room, I think, needs a bit of up training. There doesn’t seem to be good communication, things seem to be a bit outdated, and they definitely need to work on that because it feels like anytime something is new or changing, they can’t keep up. Whenever he pushes a button for help, they seem to respond pretty quickly. I timed it once and it took someone 4 minutes to get to him and he lives on the second floor. The cleanliness is great and the grounds itself are immaculate. They clean his room once a week on Thursdays and I’ve never gone into his room and had any complaints. There’s a general pricing for rent for the room and then small extra charges for things that might be needed like helping with medicine. Overall, I’m fairly pleased with it and I would recommend them with the caveat that the medication room really does need some help.
