Thumbs down

Don't send your loved ones there! I have a friend that lives there. Place is overpriced and does not provide what is listed. Went for a visit and read the activity calendar, but there was no activities being done. Residents seemed bored and not entertained. Staffing is low, saw 1 caregiver running around very busy. Dining room food is not the best, my friend said they don't serve what is listed because they run out of supplies. Saw a sign in one of the bathrooms saying it was out of order. Toured the Dementia unit and it is worse! You can smell urine just walking in. I see residents walking around with no shoes and some that look like they haven't bathed, changed their clothes, or even shaved. They just had their residents sitting in the living area with no activities being done. It's a pity they residents are paying so much for bad quality care.

[Name removed] was lovely and invited us back for a meal and activities. The shared space available was so small I don't think you could fit a double bed into it. I would have to walk through my "roommate's" room every time I wanted to leave my room, and she would have to walk through mine every time she needed to use the bathroom. I think these rooms were originally a one bedroom apartment. It had a huge closet. The rest was not only small but also with many awkward angles. The place was quite clean and did not smell. [Name removed] knew everyone and called them all by name. The carpeting was a little less than pristine. The location felt very safe and was behind a shopping mall which would be easy to get to. I thought it was very pricey for the space involved.

Terrible Facility!

This is a terrible facility!
Do not send a loved one to this place.
Low paid and Untrained staff. Shady accounting practices.
Parent died here because of neglect.
They never provided the services they promised.
There is a reason there are so many lawsuits against Brookdale. They are a greedy corporate entity.
They pay their workers terrible and have very high turnover!

Pretty Nice

I toured at Brookdale Salinas for my loved one. I thought that the community was pretty nice, but, I also thought that for the price, it was more expensive for fewer amenities. In addition, they did not have any openings when we were looking, so we continued searching.

Encouraging staff!

My mother is doing well since her move to the Brookdale Salinas. The staff is wonderful and friendly. They offer a variety of activities, my mother has not joined them but we encourage her to do so. The only thing I wish they could improve on is communication during meal time. My mother and other residents do not always know when meal time is. Other than that, we are very happy with this community.

On Visit Sealed The Deal

I was sold on the tour and I was happy with the care. My dad's experience was fabulous in every way, shape and form. It was like the Ritz or a fancy timeshare. It was just like wow in every way. The good thing is he liked the food and the bed was comfortable. The workers are sweet as pie who did good.

Nice staff. Clean. The price seemed a little steep to my but I am new at this.

They Are Ideal For My Father-In-Law

Everyone has been helpful, friendly and go out of their way to support both resident and family. During breakfast I like that the residents are able to choose what they want for lunch and dinner. Three items to choose from with a dessert selection. He enjoys the daily exercise and everyone is busy every day. Someone weekly comes to sing, they had a Halloween party, and had an opera singer last week. On the weekend, especially on Sunday, he gets bored with movies. He likes being on a schedule. For guests they have a full kitchen with no charge. We recently had a family get together. They were very accommodating and we ordered off the menu. Everyone had positive feedback and were impressed.

My Parents Are Here

My parents are doing okay living at this community. My dad takes my mom downstairs to listen to the musical event. They enjoy their meals it is tasteful and properly made. They get weekly room cleaning and they wash their laundry too. I would recommend this community in the future.

Friendly and Helpful

They are very friendly and helpful. Real nice place.

My mother has only been here a month. Overall so far so good I guess. It's a really nice and neat facility. Everything is clean and up to date. The staff are really nice. The other residents are also nice but cant really say to much because only been here a month.

I have great things to say about this facility. I think it's a great community, a lot more affordable and inexpensive place especially since my loved one would also get their own room. They take good care of the patients there however when we were in the early stages setting mom up here management shifted and the beginning process was flowing nicely until then. I wish there were certain benefits, which I earlier received from original staff. I think that maybe the change in administration and staff members may be the reason I never got the things she was promised, however this was still a negative on their behalf. Most recently the residents were exposed to a flu epidemic, however I was reassured that my loved one would be okay, and well taken care of.

Very nice modest facility. Studio room may be too small???

I loved this place, and tho...

I loved this place, and those with whom I spoke. The memory care unit felt great, but the expense, as it must be paid with private funds, would probably be more then we all can afford. Still thinking about it.

Positives and Negatives

We've had some issues about my mother's medication which is pretty important. On the other hand, the care that my mother gets from the staff is just outstanding. The lady that is running the place is new and she's not a very pleasant person but everyone else is great.
We were surprised that all these really kind, sweet, generous, happy people are all under one roof!

The medicines, that was quite an issue. We have problems with them not giving it or, running out, so it wasn't ordered in time. Fortunately for her, when that happened it was just sleeping pills but it could have been her seizure medication. It's happened a couple of times.

They take her laundry and clean her apartment on Thursday. And in the afternoon they bring all her laundry back and hang it up and everything. That is really great.


They are wonderful! Wonderful! Absolutely the best! They are very caring. I like that it's a small place and they are going way beyond their duty. They are just absolutely wonderful. I would recommend Harden Ranch in a heart beat.
