A tour for carereviewed on: 08/30/2017 by Anonymous
We toured this community for care. The community was bigger then what we wanted. The staff was helpful in the questions that we had. They had a list of activities. The menu was appealing. We would recommend other families for a tour for a loved one
Finding a Home for Momreviewed on: 09/21/2013 by Dee Zborill
I loved Emeritus from the first day we pulled into the parking lot. There seemed to be a lot of happy people walking around and the interior was very clean, bright, well-decorated, and welcoming. I also can't say enough good things about the staff from the directors to the dining staff and care givers. Everyone who works there goes out of their way to be kind and helpful. Everyone smiles a lot and treats the residents and guests with respect and courtesy. My family and I are very pleased with Mom's accommodations in a companion suite. The room is spacious, bright and just what she needs. I am also delighted that their are so many activities available for the residents. My mom has been at Emeritus for approximately 3 weeks and I can tell already that she really likes it and is enjoying all the socialization opportunities. P.S. We loved the good food and the great dining experience. Residents and guests are given choices and treated as if they were in a fine dining restaurant. We are really glad that we found Emeritus through the agency called A Place For Mom.
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.

I have toured just about every Assisted Living in Richmond, Virginia. Most were not elderly friendly when entering the building. Some had the elderly line up in wheel chairs just seating there looking like they were ready to pass on. Brookdale West is a breath of fresh air. From the moment we arrived it looked like home. Beautiful grounds. The front doors open automatically. That’s a plus for any elderly person. The interior was beautiful and pleasant. We were greeted as we came in. But most important of all, was Brookdale residence looked/were happy. No staging or made up, they were very happy. It was clean, staff was professional, caring and supporting of its residence. The rooms where nice size and clean. Medical staff on site. Plenty of activities for all residence. An awesome walking trail/garden. I would recommend this facility to me if I was looking and I would most defiantly recommend this facility to all.
May be too bigreviewed on: 09/26/2013 by Possibility
My mother had been here before when she sold her house. It was a big place, it was nice, they had a beautiful dining room and it would have been okay but it was so big I didn't think she would get much personal care.
