Facility was overall clean,...reviewed on: 07/31/2014 by Anonymous
Facility was overall clean, I liked the fact that they had a separate shower from the apartment to assist the resident. There was a bit of an odor and there was a water leak issue which they were repairing. Seemed a bit institutionalized versus 'homey' feeling.

I visited here and liked it, but it is further away than I would like. The staff were very nice.
Liked this one a lot. Room available...reviewed on: 12/24/2012 by A Place For Mom Customer
Liked this one a lot. Room available is well located towards the center of community, there is plenty of visitation spaces available, the food is good, all residents were out in the common areas doing a sing-a-long during my visit, liked the single hallway with no turns. The only problem noted was no showers in the rooms, but instead had a step in tub with water jets in both sides of the hallway. The one I was shown appeared to be moldy and not as clean as I would have hoped. Question what their cleaning processes are between patients. Initial pricing seems within our desired range, but was unable to give definitive pricing without doing an evaluation. Lunch and tour for Mom and evaluation scheduled for Friday at 12:30. In the top two, but do want to look further into cleanliness in shower rooms.
Brookdale West End Richmond is a great place.reviewed on: 03/04/2016 by Inge W. Horowitz
I am happy to take the time to write in praise of the facilities and staff at Brookdale West End Richmond where my husband has lived since Jan. 19. Everything about this place rates 5 stars, from the welcoming entrance, the residents engaged with each other and in activities whenever one enters, The activities are not always staff directed. One sees them working together on puzzles, drawing, coloring, feeding the birds, helping to po- lish the cutlery and fold the cloth napkins, Without exception, the staff has been super nice, considerate, helpful. The size of the place is relatively small, and it feels like family.
The many sides of agingreviewed on: 08/11/2015 by Anonymous
While our mother has only been there for a short time, we knew that Brookdale understood the care needed for her. While some days our mom is the mom we always have known, other days it is a bit tougher. Brookdale understands the needs for our mom who still needs her independence on her good days but might need a little extra help or redirection on her tougher days. We feel like we have found a place where our mother will be part of the community.
