Customer Reviews

Very Pleased

My sister has only been here for a short time, but so far, things seem to going very well at Brookdale. The staff is very helpful, it's a clean faculty, and I like that they have an intermediate program for those between assisted living and memory care. The food is very good here. They serve a Mediterranean diet, which is excellent, because that is what my loved one prefers. I also really like that everyday, they have about 6 or 7 activities going on, even on weekends. It seems to be a very lively community, and we are very pleased with it so far.

Lovely campus, mom and dad liked a lot. No option for independent living. Start with assisted living. Not an option.

Brookdale Brookfield was a very nice community. The staff was friendly. It was very clean and well-kept. We chose another community that was more in-line with our budget.

Safe, Secure and Cared For

Brookdale Brookfield AL seems to be a good fit for our loved one. The staff is very friendly. They are very easy to communicate with if we have any questions or concerns regarding our loved one's well-being. They keep us informed and updated by phone. Where our loved one is living there are only a few residents on the same floor so the staff is very attentive to care needs. The staff is very welcoming to our family when we come to visit. We have heard no complaints regarding the meals they provide. Our loved enjoys participating in the activities provided. It is a very clean and well-kept community. They provide outside areas and enclosed patios for the residents to enjoy the outdoors. We are very satisfied with the security measures that they provide to keep our loved one safe. I would recommend this community to others.

My tour

This looked like a nice community when I visited. The community does have smaller studio rooms. The people I met during the tour were nice. I knew mom would not be happy with the size of the rooms at this community.

April Jehlik

Local Representative

Thank you for your review of our community and your visit. We understand that room size is personal preference and at times our available suite sizes are not always the right fit for everyone. We do have one bedroom apartments available in our assisted living community which are very spacious. Currently, they are all occupied but you would have the option of being added to our waitlist if that is something you are interested in. I will be sure to pass along your feedback to our team. Thank you and have a wonderful day!

Need To Explain Their Respite Services Better, But Overall Fine Experience

My husband was in this community for a respite stay. It was a decent experience, but I do feel they were concerned more about the amount of paid respite days he had available, than his care. We were just looking into option to help him recover. When we first spoke with this community, they were informative. However once we got in the community, nobody assisted further. I was confused with how their respite services worked. They could had explained that better. I felt like it was more for their convenience. than ours.

April Jehlik

Local Representative

Thank you for your feedback. We always strive to provide the best care and communication regarding our services that we provide, including respite. Please feel free to contact our Executive Director to discuss your concerns further ([removed]).

Critical Review

My relative required a higher level of physical care than this facility was able to provide. There were times when staff did not respond in a timely manner due to the limited number of caregivers onsite at any given time.

The management staff was very helpful and attentive but this couldn't overcome the response tardiness that had been experienced at different times.

In our opinion, the food variety and quality did not meet the expectations given what we had been told.

April Jehlik

Local Representative

We appreciate your feedback. We are dedicated to ensuring that our residents are provided with the best care while they live at Brookdale Brookfield and are sorry that we did not meet your needs. If you would like to discuss your concerns in further detail, please contact our Executive Director.

My tour

The people I met during my tour were nice and knowledgable. The community seemed clean and they seemed to offer some nice amenities. This community was just a little larger than what we were looking for.

April Jehlik

Local Representative

Thank you for your review! For some residents our assisted living community in Brookfield can be too larger so keep in mind that we do have a smaller assisted living community just 15 minutes away in Sussex. Please let us know if you would like information about this community and we would be happy to set up a visit if you are interested. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions.
Brookdale Management Team

I would recommend this community.

Mom is still adjusting to living at this community. The staff have been very nice, encouraging and attentive. Mom seems to like the food, however she has not yet started to participate in any of the activities offered. They keep the community well taken care of.

April Jehlik

Have a great day and please let us know at any time if you have any questions of concerns.

Tour for mom

I toured this community I did not like the small rooms. The community had a odor from something that had been cooked and that was not good. We know that they have activities for the residents. Families might want to consider a tour of this community for the care of a loved one.

April Jehlik

Local Representative

Thank you for your review and feedback. Brookdale Brookfield does have a variety of floor plans and depending on availability does offer brand new 1 bedroom apartments with kitchenettes. We do prepare all of our meals fresh from our kitchens and depending on the cuisine sometimes the aromas do linger. We will see if there is a remedy that we can put in place for meals that may have a stronger scent. Please feel free to contact our Sales Manager, Shelley, if you should have any questions following your visit with us. Have a great day!

A great community for care

I toured this community for the care of my father. I liked the community and cleanliness. The staff was nice and caring. They have a chef that makes what the resident want for any meal time. They had a nice variety of activities. We would of liked this community, but it was more than what we could afford. Highly recommend in every area.

April Jehlik

Local Representative

Thank you so much for your review! We are indeed proud of the care we provide and have been doing so for almost 3 decades in Brookfield. I am sorry to hear that your father was not a fit financially for Brookdale Brookfield but please keep us in mind again in the future should you know of anyone with assisted living of memory care needs.
Warm Regards,
Brookdale Brookfield Management Team

Beautiful facility!!

I really liked the Brookdale Brookfield. I got a good feeling when I walked in there for my tour. The people were all very friendly and the memory care unit was across the road. The main dealbreaker for this place was the distance I would have to drive in order to see my loved ones.

Tour was comprehensive and comforting. [Removed] was knowledgeable, compassionate and also moved rapidly get a nurse's to assess my mom's readiness. The building is being added on to and older sections refurbished so it looks like new in most areas. The handicap accessible bathrooms were especially nicely done. We also ate lunch there as part of the tour and it was good.

What I saw!

This seemed like a nice community when we visited it. The staff were nice and it looked clean. Mom and I just did not like the feel of this community . This community seemed to be for residents that needed more care than mom does.

April Jehlik

Local Representative

Thank you for visiting our community and for your review. Brookdale Brookfield Assisted Living holds a CBRF license and allows our residence the opportunity to age in place and typically will not need to move into another community with a higher level of care. Because of this, we do have a range of acuities. We are pleased that you thought highly of our staff and property. We are very proud to have served seniors for 25+ years in Brookfield. Please keep us in mind in the future as your mothers needs may change. We are also more than happy to assist you in your search if you would like recommendations of other properties that may be a better fit for your mom.

Review of Brookdale Brookfield AL - Brookfield, WI

This facility was under pretty major construction. They didn’t seem real organized.

The construction project is an exciting time for our residents to make Brookdale Brookfield a better community for everyone. We apologize for any inconvenience that construction has made for you. Construction will be complete in spring of 2017 and we invite you to come back for a visit and see all of the wonderful changes that have taken place. If you have any other concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to contact our community directly at [removed] and ask for the Executive Director.

Too soon to say.

We are still in the process of ironing out a few things with Brookdale Brookfield but it seems to be going good so far. Dad just moved in not that long ago and he seems to be comfortable there although he is still trying to get use to the change. He enjoys the food and the community has lots of activities to keep the residents busy. The activities aren't really Dad's thing and the staff respect that enough to not pester him to join in. I'm hoping that Brookdale works out for Dad.

Poor quality

Very disappointed. My grandma's room is often very dirty. She has to wait quite a while for help. She fell recently and no one contacted the family. Individual assistants seem nice - but cannot recommend at all. They do little to try to involve my grandma in activities. She sits alone in her room.

A horrible place to live! They aren't anything like they say they are!

Brookdale feels homey and comfortable. Very clean and friendly place. The residents seem to have a good comraderie with one another. Thank you for the pleasant visit

Very pleased

My brother and sister in-law have been in direct contact with the Brookdale Place Brookfield, but I was in touch with a place for mom and that's how we found this place. I know that we are happy with everything. My Mom is ninety seven and everything seems just fine. The only thing would be if she would be asked about activities, because she is not an initiator. Other than that, everything is fine. We are happy.

seemed very nice, but did not have apartments and was only assisted living

Very friendly and accommodating staff

They've done an excellent job at Brookdale Place, I'd give them top marks across the board! The staff have all been very friendly, and very helpful. They've done a great job helping my loved one settle into the community, they gave him a good idea of all of the services and activities they provide without him feeling like they were trying to push anything on him.

I saw this today before we ...

I saw this today before we talked. It was nice facility with lots of common areas, own PT staff and medicine control. It felt like staff and residents were like family. But not what I was expecting, hoping more for apartment style to ease mom with dad's needs.

Beautiful place.

Beautiful place.

Higher Care Needs

Brookdale Place was a little closer to a nursing home feel. It was a nice facility because it's nearly brand new but it just wasn't appropriate for my father-in-law because it was too much like a nursing home rather than an independent apartment. The studios were really very small. I think they did that on purpose to get people out into the activity rooms and things. If my father-in-law needed more care it would have been a good place for him.

They called me and I went for a visit. Very nice facility. Require 2 years private pay first. Is farther than I would like, but will consider it.

Looks nice. Good location
