Review of Brandywine Living at Mahwah

My mother lived in the assisted living unit and then the reflections floor. The staff at Brandywine was sensitive, caring, respectful and honest. I am grateful for the attention and support the staff provided. [Name removed] was particularly loving and caring. [Name removed] is an extraordinary nurse.

GOING DOWNHILL!!

Brandywine has consistently and steadily gone downhill!! My parents were one of the first residents. They were promised the world and all its trimmings. My father has to nag and plead for his services which he pays for, and which are not provided unless he complains. A 92 year old man should not have to do this. He says the food and the service in the dining room is horrible....waits 40 minutes for the meal to be served. Very very disappointed in what is going on there and they are very unhappy. I intend to follow up with corporate

great leadership

Like a symphony orchestra Brandywine is made up of sections. To make beautiful music there must be a perfect director and that is what we have in Mariola. A competent, intelligent, personable and caring leader who whom we care. She leads a great team here made up of many sections which makes living here so enjoyable! Just like an orchestra that creates beautiful music.

I could not be happier living here

Words fail me to describe how content I am here. Hotel type building, fine dining, large menu choices, three sittings per day, spotlessly clean, spacious rooms, weekly linen changes, staff very attentive to resident, friendly residents, good companionship, regular entertainment, weekly trips to stores, museums, church etc, Staff drivers to doctors. These are benefits to living at Brandywine. As a resident I could not be happier.

Review of Brandywine Living at Mahwah

Great facility. My mom is very happy there.

Such a great place!

Dear [name removed]:

I am an old friend of one of your current residents. In June my wife and I drove down from our home in New Hampshire to say "Goodbye" to my dear friend of 70 years. I found your facility to be everything I would expect from a high-end assisted care, right down to the player piano in the lobby. Your grounds, interior and welcoming staff made us feel at home.

The main reason for this Thank You letter is to commend [name removed], one of your staff on duty the day we came. She was delightful, bringing us up in the elevator to our friend's room on the third floor in memory care. After connecting us with our friend, she was gracious enough to provide these weary travelers with a hot cup of coffee and some cookies, (which was very much appreciated) while we visited. [Name removed] said he really likes her and they often banter back and forth in a positive way. Your [name removed] is a gem.

Our friend is happy with his surroundings and realizes his time on earth is limited. He accepts that fact, and seems grateful for being in your care.

Thank you for taking care of our good friend in his greatest time of need. And, a special thanks to [name removed] for her wonderful spirit and hospitality.

Sincerely,
[Name removed]

Review of Brandywine Living

Facility is always clean and workers always happy to help with care. I would definitely have my loved one come to this community.

Oustandying community for you loved one

Brandywine provides its senior residents with an outstanding environment; the upkeep and cleanliness is excellent. Both the food preparation and choices are of high quality. Activities are thoughtfully planned and keep all who choose to participate active and satisfied. The healthcare providers and all staff members are continually caring, courteous and helpful. [Name removed] is exceptionally dedicated, constantly going above and beyond as Executive Director.

A good match for my mom

My mother was one of the first residents to move into Brandywine several years ago. She would like to stay in her room and isolate until the activity director [name removed], came on the scene. Now my mom takes extension classes at Brandywine from Ramapo College, she goes on excursions to fun places, plays poker and blackjack twice a week with a real dealer. [Name removed] really puts such an emphasis on keeping the resident's minds busy and active. Thank you [name removed]

Quality of life exceeded all expectations

The quality of life exceeded all expectations! It is a pleasure to be part of a society of similar age and experiences. My single comment is "comfort". Individuals who have the opportunity will surely be delighted!

Thank You!

My Mom, [name removed], was a resident at Brandywine of Mahwah from September 2017, until she passed on New Year’s Eve, 2018. Your Executive Director [name removed]’s kindness and sensitivity sets the bar high for her entire staff. [Name removed], Mom’s favorite Nurse, along with the entire Brandywine team were extraordinary. During the 18 months that Mom lived at Brandywine, we made a few trips to the ER due to health issues. Each time Mom returned to [name removed] she was greeted with warmth, smiles, and open arms. She was returning home. I know I speak for my siblings when I say that we could not have asked for more. [Name removed] with her warm smiles and tenderness in the dining room, [name removed] keeping everyone busy and engaged, and all of the care managers who always looked out for Mom, allowed us to feel that we’d found the right place for her. I have been recommending Brandywine to any one and everyone that will listen. Thank you for making her final days rich, joyful, and most importantly safe.

Happy Resident

I love Brandywine Living at Mahwah. There are many, varied activities. There is personal pride and respect. I am free to be ME! We thrive of Love & Respect for each other. The building is impeccably appointed and maintained with pride, All employees do their jobs well and are enthusiastically involved with us residents. This is a happy, pleasant place to be! I expect to live out my life here.

Best thing I ever did

Moving my Dad here was the best thing I ever did! Knowing my Dad is in such great hands is such peace of mind. The staff is great and the community is beautiful!

I love this place!

My mom moved into this community about 3 weeks ago and I am so absolutely impressed with not only the staff but the facility as a whole. Everyone is great but [name removed] has made me feel so comfortable and made my whole family feel that we can call anytime and when I have she has been nothing but stellar! Activities, amenities and food are amazing! I would recommend this community to anyone!

Beautiful Facility

My mother is currently living at Brandywine in Mahwah. It is a great facility!! All the workers treat the residents with dignity and respect. The residents are very well cared for by nurses and doctors. The food is delicious!! Personal attention is given to all the residents. It gives me peace of mind that she is being taken care of when I’m not there. Definitely recommend the facility!!

Couldn't be happier!

My Mom lives in the memory care at this community and I couldn't be happier with the progress she has made and the way she is doing. She was living home with an aid prior to moving in and was so lonely and miserable that it made me cry on a daily basis. Moving her into this community was the best decision I ever made even though getting her to move was not the easiest process. She was very resistant and the first few days were rough but the staff was great and helped her feel at home. 3 months later she is now happier than I have seen her in a while and she has made friends and is participating in activities that I never thought she would have. There is nothing more in the world that would make me happier than the smile I now see on my mom's face when I visit her here.

My father has lived at Brandywine Mahwah for over 18 months, first in Assisted Living and currently in the Memory Care unit. I visit once a week on average. The executive director, nurses and staff are at the same time professional and compassionate. They have anticipated my father's evolving needs and tailored his care to meet them. I can rely on the executive director, on-site nurses and visiting physicians to take or promptly return my calls. The facility is beautifully maintained, with amenities that include an exercise pool and an outdoor patio dining area. I particularly appreciate the special events, which allow me to visit with Dad in an atmosphere made festive by music, decorations and special menus. Despite his challenges, Dad recognizes he's well-cared for. Can't get him to move closer to me.

Wow!

This is by far the nicest community I have ever been to. My grandmother was in another assisted living a few years prior to this one opening and I was never able to visit her as it always just made me sad. Boy do I wish she was still around to see this place. It gives the feeling of walking into a 5star hotel! She would have loved this community and I would have been here visiting daily enjoying all the fabulous amenities with her! I know where I'll be moving when the time comes!

I have been a resident at Brandywine Senior Living at Mahwah for almost a year.  I am very happy and comfortable here and I am pleased I made the decision to move here.  My apartment is spacious and well-appointed, with amenities I did not find elsewhere, such as a large bathroom with handicapped-accessible fixtures.  The bedroom is roomy with adequate closet space.  The furniture that I brought with me works nicely in the living space. The building boasts a therapy pool, well-appointed activity rooms, a large theater, and a tap room for refreshments.  Heating and cooling is comfortable and very reliable.  A powerful generator backs up the power in the building in case of an outage, and provides a steady internet signal throughout the building.  The dining experience is good, with tasty meals and snacks available all day.  A full schedule of activities and entertainment is outlined in a daily schedule.  Finally I must comment on the competent and very caring staff.  They provide a high level of care day and night and assistance is always a push of a button away.

A wonderful place for mom to live!

There aren't enough stars to express the wonderful care my mom is receiving. She suffers from dementia and requires constant care. Bless the care givers for all of their loving service. The beautiful surroundings help to make our visits pleasant. Mom always expresses how beautiful the flowers are

A wonderful place for loved ones to live and be cared for.

I am a physician and am well acquainted with assisted living facilities and nursing homes. My sister is now living at Brandywine in Mahwah. The staff is very caring and considerate. She is very happy living there.

Before this my sister was at Sunrise in Wayne for 6-7 months and the difference between these places is truly remarkable. Brandywine has physical therapy available on the premises, wonderful activities, and even a physician on site two days a week. I have described Brandywine to friends as being like a 5 star hotel.

The staff goes out of their way for everyone and the place itself is just beautiful. My sister has only been there for a few weeks and so far I am extremely impressed with this facility and the people running it.

I will comment again as time goes on.

People that care !!

My Dad has been at this Brandywine facility since it opened in July 2015. The facility is beautiful, from the large rooms, dinning room, and beautiful décor. There is also a movie theater, pub, pool, etc. This is all nice but the most important thing to me is outstanding care that they provide for my dad. I know that my dad loves Brandywine because all the aids, nurses, and management. They treat my dad special and that means the most to me. I am 100% confident that they provide the best possible care for my dad. This place is the best !

Thank You Brandywine

From the Community

Life is beautiful at Brandywine Senior Living. We have luxurious individual suites with a private bath and kitchen area. Meanwhile, on the other side of your door are services to meet your needs, and entertainment to enliven your spirit.

With on-site–not–on–call licensed nurses only steps away, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, there is no need to worry about where to turn for care.

When not relaxing in the privacy of their own suites, our residents can enjoy good company in one of our spacious, well-appointed dining rooms or comfortable lounge areas. Likewise, they can choose to spend time in one of our landscaped courtyards, terraces, and garden areas - each a perfect setting for a leisurely conversation with family and friends. Most importantly, they are not alone anymore. Isolation and boredom are probably the two most impacting factors on aging. When you have friends, when you can laugh, when you have a reason to get up in the morning - and look forward to your day - your life is, indeed, beautiful.

Brandywine Assisted Living offers a state of the art program for those with Alzheimer’s Disease and other memory impairments.
