Customer Reviews

An older large apartment building not really a community

Too large a complex
No grounds outside for walking
Apartments are very dated and small
Lots of activities
Good dining options

Nice apartments

Brookdale Quincy seems to be a good fit for my dad. The community is very clean and well kept. The food is good, I have shared meals there with my dad and he says the only thing that is lacking is fresh fruit, he really misses having fruit with the meals provided. There are activities offered, but my dad is younger than a lot of the residents, so a lot of the activities do not appeal to him. He does use the shuttle service provided to go into town for shopping or attending concerts in Boston. The apartment my dad has is great, very clean and comfortable. I would recommend Brookdale Quincy Bay to others.

Will most likely sign an agreement here. Great knowledgeable staff everywhere we visited. The Director and sales person Kevin were very personable and inviting. Both inspired confidence in our decision.

I toured here, and it was nice.

I toured here, and it was nice. It wasn't exactly what we were looking for, but it was very nice. It might be a good fit for a friend, but not for us.

Mother Is Enjoying Active Community

The staff are over-the-top with all that they do for my mom. She loves all the activities and outings that are offered. My mom lives a happy active life from the community! The dining room has folded napkins and loves the catering atmosphere. My mom's rooms is kept clean but the lower part of the facility could use a fresh paint and constant vacuuming. I would recommend this place!

Stop and Ask Forst

Brookdale Quincy Ma. My experiences with my mom being here is really not good. When we were looking for a place to have my mom live out her life with ease and comfort we truly felt that Riverbay was the place for her. The staff was friendly and seemed genuine. When we moved my mother in she loved it the staff was friendly and attentive. The residents seemed friendly and excited to be there. As time passed and my mother needed more assistance everything went down hill. They would not treat her well because she needed help& if she complained they would harress her and tell her she was going to get them fired. She would sit in her own urine until someone was free to help. While showering they would tell her to hurry up they were getting off there shift and needed to do paperwork before they could leave. When in a activity if she needed assistance she would wait her turn but then be told she didnt tell someone fast enough. The staff is up and down. There are some great employees there a few Aides are great the others should be let go ASAP. There is one Nurse Diane that really needs to be replaced. I have personally heard her say that she hopes she doesnt walk in to residents room and see something she doesn't want to deal with. Then opposite is the Director of Nursing Anne [removed] is spectacular. She really truly cares. Some people that work there are only there for a paycheck. The Director Mark is worthless he tells you a story but never follows through.
He never returns emails or calls he does not want to deal with issues. He is all about appearance at the moment but does not get to the route of the problems. Stop and ask other people before you enter your parent into this place. If we could we would move my mother but she is not willing to change her life again. Seniors need our help to be comfortable not pushed around. Help Others First

Review of Brookdale Quincy Bay - Quincy, MA

Loved my tour lots of activities place was clean everyone was friendly going back for lunch next week !

Nice place, friendly staff!

Overall we're very happy with how things have turned out at Brookdale Quincy Bay! The staff here is friendly and professional, and they do a great job staying in contact with you if there are any issues. The facility itself is clean and well kept, and my loved one really seems to enjoy it here. It was personally recommended to me by a friends mother who lives here, and it was a good recommendation!

Our tour was excellent. Helen is such a nice person. The building was clean and well kept. It seems like a wonderful community.

Very nice place

We're very happy with Brookdale Quincy Bay, it's a very nice place, overall! It's a a very nice looking, clean community, and the people here are all very friendly. The staff does a great job looking after the people who live here! My one complaint would be that I think they could improve the escort service that they offer, where they will take your loved one to meals/activities. It is nice that they offer it, but it hasn't been entirely reliable in our experience.

They are pretty good at doing what is needed or what you ask for.

River Bay Club ---- What a wonderful place to live

I reviewed at least 8 other facilities in the area. This place is a winner. I was able to secure a beautiful, spacious 1 bedroom apartment for my Mom at a reasonable price. Be informed --- most places offer specials at certain times during the year. They will discount the rental price in order to attract new clients. I got my mother a 30% discount . The price went from $ 4,200 a month to $ 2,950. She gets 1 meal a day ( dinner ) which is everything from soup to nuts. I have eaten there several times with her and I can tell you the food is great. She usually gets soup,salad,fresh basket of bread, entree,potato,vegetables,coffee and dessert. She can have seconds if she wants. Her apartment gets cleaned 2 times a month. That's all included in the rental. The only extra thing she has to pay for is her phone and TV. They have a free mini van that takes them out every Wednesday to the grocery store or the pharmacy etc... They can also go on a mystery ride every Sunday. They have gone to places like the shrine of La Salette, the town of Plymouth ( Plymouth Rock ). It's so nice that they can get out on a little adventure. I have not met a crabby person there yet. The staff seems to be very caring. They have a welcoming committee who befriends new people so that they can make the adjustment to living there easier. They sit you at the same table every night for dinner. This is so that you make friends with your table mates and before you know it, the conversation is flowing. They have bands and piano players come in. They have all kinds of clubs -- cards, knitting, computer, a book club and more. I could go on and on. Go look for yourself. You'll be so glad you did.

Great place at a great price

My parents are really liking this place so far. It's a nice looking place, and the staff have all been great. It's also very clean. They provide everything they've needed in terms of care and, although my parents don't participate in many, seem to have a good variety of activities. We've also heard very good things about the food! The price is also excellent for all the services they provide.

Enjoying it so far!

This is the community we picked for my mother-in-law. It seems great so far. It's very clean and the staff are wonderful, caring and very friendly. We feel very confident about the care that they can provide, and they have nursing staff on hand at all times. Compared to others that we looked at it provided a nice sized apartment for the price.

Took the tour and spoke with Helen Galagher. They accepted my aunt and she is living there at this time.

Exspensive room service charge

River Bay Club is like a big hotel. I cannot say anything bad about them, we just feel like we do not receive the services anywhere near what we are paying for. Our loved one is a tough nut to crack and is in need of social interaction. We were guaranteed they would take our loved out daily and that they have the professionals on staff to do just that. Included with the rent are the meals in the dining room, but our loved one refuses to leave the room so there is a $9 charge for room service. It seems that since they are not taking her out per their guarantee than there should be no extra charge. It is possible our loved one needs different care services, it just seems more effort to evaluate our loved one may have avoided this frustration. Other than that I cannot say anything bad about the place, it's a little hard to get to and on a busy street.

Lots of activities

We chose this community because it was $1,000 cheaper then the previous community he was in. They offer a lot of different activities and try to keep the residents very busy. They are no very proactive when it comes to some of the extra services you pay for. If you are paying for any extra services you need to ensure they are providing them. It just seems to be a disconnect some where and hopefully they fix it.

The facility has a great layout with all of the key amenities accessible on the 1st floor. It was bright and hopping with residents moving about. We looked at a model apartment that was tastefully decorated and had a great view. I met with Lynn for over an hour. She was informative, patient and understanding. Through our conversation we determined that the River Bay Club is not suitable for my parents, but that did not stop Lynn from offering other advice and useful information to me. She was great.

Too large and overwhelming for my mom. There was a long line for the residents to go in to sit down for dinner. Easy to get lost in the crowd.
