My Mom's Experiencereviewed on: 09/01/2016 by Anonymous
I set up the tours for my mom and when she went here she was happy with the tour. They were able to let her see the community and she felt the director was good. My mother met some good people here. This was one of her communities to choose from.
Dad's New Homereviewed on: 11/09/2017 by Anonymous
I really like this community for my dad they are working with me to keep my dad healthy and happy. He just isn't eating the food so the staff helps encourage him to do so. The staff is nice and approachable and very patient with my dad. There are daily activities that they engage him on and he does enjoy them. The staff is really concerned and caring. The grounds are well maintained and is always clean inside. I would a recommend this community.
Happy and helpful residentsreviewed on: 11/21/2017 by Anonymous
I toured here when looking for a place for my sister. It was very, very nice. I liked it but my sister didn’t seem to. I liked the grounds a lot and some of the residents were outside while we were touring. It seemed very safe and very accommodating. The facility was very clean and there weren’t any smells, which is normally the first thing I try to pay attention to. The residents all seemed happy and helpful and everything I saw was beautiful. It was a nice place all around but we ultimately went with a different community.
They did a great job and seem to be a wonderful facility.reviewed on: 12/30/2014 by Anonymous
They did a great job and seem to be a wonderful facility. It was clean and the staff was friendly. My loved one didn't stay long, but it didn't seem to have anything to do with the facility. We just didn't have a lot of experience.
Excellent move in experiencereviewed on: 09/13/2015 by C. Meyer
Jeremy Fontenot is outstanding at guiding families through the process of touring, checking in and moving into their apartments. Jeremy and his staff worked diligently to get my aunt transferred from another facility and settled in--even on a Saturday when most weekday staff is not there. My aunt is happy and secure in a very welcoming environment. I would readily recommend Brookdale Castle Hills to anyone! C. Meyer
