Customer Reviews

Stay away!

There is a mandatory $2500.00 fee to move in to this Brookdale. We moved in two seniors (5k) at the same time and were told Brookdale would move them to a higher level of care when needed, actually MOVE them. Also that we could hire their caregivers as needed. It’s all a lie. They do the least possible. There was no higher level. There weren’t caregivers on staff. We had an emergency and had to hire contractors. When one of the Seniors was in the hospital the “nurse” came to the emergency room with a MENU of extra services. He was dying of heart failure and her mission was up sell me! They raise the rent drastically every year. It’s a rip off place. We had to find more extensive care to one of the seniors. He died 22 days after moving, per doctors orders. They are still billing us! I recommend The Legacy group. Stay away from this company!

Great facility, 1 bedroom apartment is a little dated, but good view of center nature area and pool; Balcony. Hallways are open to the elements, so would need winter coat to walk to dining room in winter. Less expensive overall rent, and community fee transferable to other Brookdale facilities.

Great value for the care that my Mom needs

My Mom is here currently and things seem to be going well. She’s still getting used to being in a new place but it’s working out nicely. The staff is very good with her and they do a good job at answering any questions I might have. The food is good and there seems to be a lot of options to choose from. I think it’s nutritious overall and they do a good job with it considering they have a lot of people to feed. They have various activities, like going shopping and showing movies. They also do a good job at working hard to keep everything clean. I think they really provide the best value for the level of care that my Mom needs and I would recommend them to others.

[Removed] and I visited on Saturday 11/25. We thought that it was a nice place. It's independent living. The apartments open to the outside and feels more like an apartment instead of a nursing home.

1. Arrived at facility on time. [Removed]my guide was 10 minutes late. Reception area person was like warm.
2. The facility essentially covers the needs of an independent living style. Daily trips for outing is a plus.
3. On the tour came across other staff. They seem to be courteous in making you feel at home.
See a few residents as we were walking by. They seem to be happy to be living there
4. The corridors caught my attention. They are wide with nice seating areas conveniently arranged. At several locations. It is a great feature. It would be further enhanced if these areas could be provided with local heating during winter
4. Bistro is a nice feature.
5. Excellent location. Cannot ask for a better location for senior living.
6. I am not the right person to comment on meals menu. I am a vegetarian. Not much is offered on the menu for a vegetarian.
7. Most of the residents I saw seem be in 80s. It is just an observation.

Toured with [Removed]. Lovely grounds. Apts are dated, but can be upgraded. 95% full. There was a one bedroom on 1st floor available, we asked for an estimate to upgrade.

A tour for mom and dad

We toured this community for my parents. We like the staff and the cleanliness. We needed a bigger room for both of my parents. The menu was nice and the environment was nice. We would recommend this to other families to see the options of care that are available.

Made a good choice

They are really taking good care of him at Brookdale First Colony. The atmosphere feels comfortable, warm and inviting. Our family has dined there with him and they say the food is really good. I have other family members who also live there and they all like being involved in the activities they provide. It's a big change for my dad going from a three bedroom to a one bedroom apartment, but he is settling in there. They have a nicely landscaped courtyard and a pool. There are covered sidewalks to get to the buildings around the community, the activity room, the dining room and the main lobby. There are washers & dryers that are nearby their apartments. Transportation is offered to the residents to go different places for shopping trips. It was a difficult decision to make the move for my parents. I feel relieved and comfortable moving my parents there, and know I made the right choice.

Good care for family

I am happy knowing that this is a good community for care. I like that he is in a good environment. The menu is outstanding and offers a good variety of healthy meals. There are a lot of other residents that he is socializing with. They do have activities for him to participate. We would recommend this community for the nice care and value for other families.

I would move here

I really liked this community it was wonderful. I liked the way it was setup everything was external meaning that once you walked out your apartment door you were outside and that is how you need to get to another part of the community everything was accessible from the outside which is fine if your an outdoors type of person for my loved ones this property was not a good fit for that reason.
The property itself was amazing they have a pool, the food was good they have a more open food schedule than most other places we were at. The staff was extremely friendly and kind. There was really nothing that I personally didn't like about this location I would love living here.

My visit

This community was nice. The people we met were friendly and knowledgeable. This community does allow pets and they seem to offer some nice amenities. This community was just a little out of our price range.

Clean, safe, friendly option for my Mom

Beautiful and clean surroundings, nice garden, swimming pool and sitting areas. The staff is really involved. All of them seem to remember your name and particulars, from the executive director to the counter person at the Bistro. This feels like a safe place for my Mom. They treat her well.

Take a look

We really liked this community when we visited. The people we met were friendly and helpful. The community seemed clean and well taken care of. The community is more open and you enter some of the apartments from the outside. We were looking for a more secure community.

We toured this community for us to move into. We did not like that the hallways did not have air at the time of the tour. The staff were nice and able to answer the questions we had on the care that is offered.They had a nice variety on the menu for the meals that are available We would recommend that other families tour this community to see if this is what they are look for.

An older place...

When I toured Brookdale, everyone there was very nice. The facility itself was older, though. We were already looking into another community that was newer.

Lots of great entertainment.

There is plenty of entertainment available at this community to keep all of he residents busy which is one of the things I liked the most about this place. My father has recently moved in and the staff are doing the best they can too make sure he is accommodated and well taken care of. They have a beautiful courtyard as well as other great amenities available around the building. I would defiantly recommend this place to anyone interested.

A tour

I liked that this community offers independent and assisted living. The community is beautiful and all of the apartments face a garden. This community was one of our top two. The cost to live her was a little out of our budget.

My dad is very happy at Brookdale. [Removed] and her staff were a pleasure to work with and made this transition for my dad easy. Residents are very nice and property is maintained and beautiful.

Really Happy!

Everything is just fine here so far. I have no complaints and neither does my mom. The community is clean and neat and the people are good to my mom. We are very pleased with everything that is going on.

So far All is Well

So far everything is working out pretty well since my mothers move to this community. I do feel comfortable with her move here, it is a good, safe facility. They have a friendly staff, they have been good to work with. There are activities offered for the residents. Overall things are working in the right directions, and this is a community I would recommend.

Needed some improvements...

We really wanted to like the Brookdale because of its location. When the tour guide took us into the rooms, they were so small. The floors seemed like the wood underneath the carpet was no longer smooth, so it was not a good feel. The hallways were outdoors and we were looking for indoor. The people were friendly but it was too small for the price.

Very nice place, good food!

Brookdale First Colony is a very time place, from what I have seen! The staff is friendly, and the place looks very nice. I also had the chance to eat a meal here and I was impressed by the quality of the food AND how healthy it was!

Like a Resort!

When I took my first tour of Brookdale First Colony to check it out for my mom, I felt like it was a dream. I had no idea there was something that could be so all-inclusive and welcoming. The community has a resort feel with the layout, landscaping and all the activities. The staff and residents are incredibly friendly. I'm so grateful we found this place for my mom and her husband. Thank you!

I'am Doing Well Here At This Community

I'am doing pretty good here at this community. It is a nice looking. They do a good job with the cleaning, I haven't had any problems with that. The staff is very courteous and concern about me. They could be a little better with their responsive time. There are lovely activities, I enjoy playing bingo. I have no complaints about this community. Overall this is community I would recommend it.

Review of Brookdale First Colony- Sugarland, TX

We were very impressed by the cleanliness of the community and the affability of the staff. The apartments we toured were airy and bright. Definitely made our short list of communities for Mom to consider. Location is good.

Everything Has Been Good

My loved one has only been there for about a month, but so far everything has been going good. She enjoys going down for the meal times and the apartments are really nice and everyone there is just very friendly.

Super friendly staff

The staff is super friendly and helpful. My only concern is that the try to let the residents become independent. IT would be helpful if they came to check on them from time to time when they first come in. My parents 1st statement was lost in the mail and their rent was late. I thought I would have automatic payments started for December and no one explained it would not be until January.

Just moved in

Apartment size and storage included is great. Only been three days.

Great move.

The staff at Brookdale is fabulous. They are caring and want the best possible care for our parents. The move in was easy and everyone was very accommodating. My mom is enjoying the independence and meeting new people.

Very good experience. Definitely under consideration .

Fantastic place

The sales staff is very personable and relates very well to all involved . They listen closely and take action as needed to accomadate your wishes. When they see residents the call them by name, to me this shows they care and take the time to know who you are.

The restrauant staff is also very friendly and helps you know what is available and how the process works as there are many choices. My mother loves the place and has acclimated very well to her new environment due to the staff and the residents.

The residents are very friendly. They take the time to introduce themselves and invite other residents to participate in different events. This has been most helpful to my mom being new she didn't know how to begin to get involved .

A wonderful place

above and beyond

At Brookdale First Colony they offer at wide range of activities. I am hoping my parents will utilize them soon. Everyone just went above and beyond assuring me that my parents would be comfortable here. We have been so impressed.

I found 1st Colony Brookdale to be so helpful in assisting with my parents move into their new apartment. Linsi was so caring about all their needs and we really appreciate the time she spent guiding me through the process. I look forward to seeing my parents get involved in their community and make new friends. Thanks so much!

Tour was excellent. Staff very friendly. Facility very clean and well keep. Residents seemed friendly and engaged with each other.

good place, great manager

They were very good at explaining everything. My aunt had it stuck in her mind that the rent was going to increase every year and she couldn't understand why. The manager was very good at carefully explaining things (price of food, cleaning materials, etc.) to help her understand and bring her at peace with it.

A place of her own.

We got my aunt moved into Brookdale and have been so pleased with the arrangements there. My aunt is making friends and seems to really be enjoying having her own place. We feel comfortable with the security of knowing there is someone to help her if the need arises. We're very happy with this choice.

Enjoyed our visit here too, although it is more expensive, but the staff seemed very attentive and concerned, great location right in the heart of where my aunt has her doctors, runs her errands, etc. Very good neighborhood.

This process was seamless with the guidance from Tina and the staff at The Terrace. We have really been treated like we were their most valuable jewel.

Great Place for Independent Living

We like it, they provide meals and transportation, but no other services. They did have activities for the residents to participate in. For someone who doesn't have Alzheimer's it would be a good place to live. He moved there almost 6 years ago when he was completely independent, and he would have stayed longer if he could have.

Jessica was very professional and highly effective at communicating the offerings of the Terrace community. We appreciate the Independent Living with Innovative Senior Care concept. We saw very positive interactions between the staff, Jessica and the residents during our visit. We appreciated the attention to detail and focus on the care and maintenance of the units and property. Liked the flexibility of the community care payment - allowing you to move to other Brookville communities and carry that with you if your care progresses and your needs change. We would definitely keep this community on the list of options for the future care of our parents.

Friendly People

It was just the location that was inconvenient for me here. It's clean and the people were very friendly. It's a mirror image to the facility in Clear Lake from the facility itself to the people that work there. The Clear Lake location was closer to me.
