Community Reviews

Best Value

reviewed on: 11/19/2021 by Steve

They were the best value I found when looking around in the area. It's a very nice community, and the staff are nice as well. I've been pretty happy with the food, and they have a steady program of activities.

Adjusting takes time

reviewed on: 08/18/2017 by Anonymous

My mom is still adjusting to her new home here at Brookdale Northgate. The location is good for me to be able to see her often. I really like that the staff is so friendly and caring and the way they interact with the residents. Mom likes her room it is warm and inviting, and she really likes having her own balcony and the lighting it provides. She really appreciates how clean the housekeeping crew keeps up her room, changing the sheets and all the other jobs she no longer has to do for herself. It does take some time for the maintenance crew to get around to fix things, such as the elevator's light and the button not working properly. It can be confusing for the residents with memory issues. On another note, we are waiting for the new activities director to get the activities (entertainment, movie nights, excursions away from the community) going that they were to provide for the residents.

Mixed bag.

My impression is that they are adequate. The food service is good to very good. The restaurant style service is appealing and my sister praised it. Some of their follow-through is deficient. They use Comcast cable service for TV but it is taking a long time to set up my sister's TV. Her TV is very important to her satisfaction.

Would Recommend

reviewed on: 05/10/2021 by Julie

What we really saw that was positive is the staff, from the front end staff, to the director, who is excellent to work with. They have excellent communication. We get emails all the time with any updates. They're close by to medical facilities, so that's been a Godsend. The shuttle service they have has been very accommodating, so we've been very happy with that. They take the residents to doctor appointments, and on outings. Recently they went to the Tulip Festival. My family members love the food. They were at a different place with turnover in the kitchen that negatively affected the food, and now at Cogir of Northgate they rave about the food. They have no complaints and are very happy. The only downside has been the fact that there aren't any sidewalks along 15th NE. So if they're out walking with their electric walkers, they don't feel comfortable going on an outing to the grocery store due to the lack of sidewalks. Overall we've had a good experience, and would definitely recommend it to others.

I'm 77; when I moved here, I didn't expect much different from two other retirement/assisted places. Here it's an old, very clean building, one elevator for four floors. Many people seem to have physical or mental disabilities. Though cultural and food/health allergies to pork are common, I was told it's not the kitchen that puts pork in soups and foods, it's the distributors used by this facility... pork is not always noted when present, in the menu; it definitely needs to be for health/religious reasons. The dining area is very clean, though noisy: carpet has been replaced with hard, attractive flooring. The living room TV is often on so loud some residents won't go there , would like more quiet space and activities; they seem to sign up for these as soon as available and posted. This is changing and we are hoping for more.
