Customer Reviews

Was a tad disappointed in this facility. It had the reminiscence of an old time nursing home. It appeared clean, but the residents appeared to be on there own while the care staff mingled around. There was a choice between a shared room and a private room, but everyone had to use community showers and only twice a week or you would get charged extra. The prices here were on the high side for the area especially for what the client receives. This is not a place I would put my mother.

My Tour Went Well

This is a pretty nice community, and my tour went well. From what I saw the community looked nice, everything appeared to be well-kept. The staff I met was friendly, and helpful. It was a good one experience, but I did find a better match for my mother, and her needs.

The Community I Had a Tour With

I had a chance to tour this community and I did not like it. It did not fit my sister. The age group of the residents are much older than her.

Brother

They are the best on handling my brother. Calming him down from leaving and going home. A lot of co-operation with the staff.
Thanks alot

A good community

The staff have been great working with the hospice people to make sure that dad has everything he needs. This community does offer daily activities and they keep it clean. I would recommend this community.

Very, very expensive!

Brookdale would not have been a good fit for my mother. Most of the residents were in wheelchairs and walkers. The rooms were shared and the place was very expensive. They do a wonderful [Removed] where they say they will cover you with medicare one month and not the other and over again. It was not a choice for us.

Not what they said!

I feel that the staff here have a lack in communication. Things were not getting done with my father like they were suppose to. We were promised certain things and never got it. Also they were suppose to have activities and they were minimal. I would not recommend this place.

Spic and Span!

This place was very, very clean when we walked in. The people were also very nice and helpful. The residents were walking around and just hanging out. It was very calm and pleasant. I also saw some of the residents exercising.

Abusive to my father !!

I would never recommend this community to anyone not only did they neglect my father but they where very abusive to him as well. My dad complained he was having pains and discomfort for two days and the staff did nothing about it. He ended up being admitted into the hospital with a serious UTI. The staff would roughly hold him down and jerk his wheel chair around to make him take his medication. My loved one was there for only five days before I removed him from, I would not suggest that any families put there loved ones in this community.

The Few Times I Went To See The Community

I liked seeing this community and visited the place a few times. The staff were nice people but I saw a few residents when visiting. I felt that it was pretty quiet and did not see any activities going on when I went to visit.

It Is Enjoyable For My Aunt

So far it is going well for my aunt here. We are very happy with everything. The food that is made and activities that are provided are good for my aunt. She loves it at this community and I would recommend them.

Will consider in the future

During the search for a memory care facility for my parents, my father passed away. Erica, at Brookdale Utica was very compassionate and sympathetic. We toured the facility a couple of times. Although, I chose not to move my mom from the assistive facility she was at, I would definitely consider Brookdale Utica in the future. I especially like the individual dining rooms for each "wing of rooms". The staff was courteous and the facilities were clean.

A Kind Community My Tour Went Well

My tour of this community was nice. From what I saw they do a good job with keeping the community nice and clean. The staff was kind and friendly. It just was not the community for mother. It was a pleasant tour, this a nice community with kind people.

keep an eye on them

OVER PROMISE AND UNDER DELIVER, Room and meals are fine. The workers are very pleasant. There are many errors made in providing or not providing my mothers needed services. We tell the management what changes are required and they either dont care or dont know how to get the required services done. The building itself is in need of extensive maintenance which might be an indication of the companies overall approach to running their business.

Comfortable, Caring Environment for your Loved One

The information and admissions process was handled very efficiently. Staff answered all questions and this place felt like "home" away from home, as best as it possibly could for my Mom. The care staff and food services staff are wonderful to work with! Everybody there has been friendly, caring and helpful. I would recommend Brookdale Utica to others.

Very satisfied

Mom has been at Brookdale Utica for a month now. We are very satisfied with their services, especially letting us know her medical issues.

It seems to be going pretty well so far.

It seems to be going pretty well so far. I haven't heard any major complaints. So far we are pretty happy with them. It's clean and the staff is friendly, and there hasn't been any major frustrations with billing or anything else, to this point.

Not impressed

We toured this community while looking into care options for a loved one. Based on the experience I had during the tour I wouldn't be able to recommend this facility, the person who showed us around really did not give us a good first impression. The first question out of her mouth when we met her was "How much money do your parents have?". It did not give me the feeling that care was their first priority.

Wonderful place

I loved that they had a sitter stay with my mom for the first 24 hours.

Please check other facilities!

Very unhappy with this assisted living. Staffing is incredibly short in every aspect of living-housecleaning, aids, dining staff etc.....

Very nice place, could use a few more staff members

Wynwood of Utica is a very nice place overall, in terms of their facilities and the service they provide. Everything is always very clean and well kept, and the staff here are friendly and professional. However, I will say I am a bit disappointed in the staff-to-resident ratio. The care they provide here is good, but I think it could be even better if the staff weren't stretched so thin.

Caring, attentive staff

My loved one has only been here a short time, but so far things have gone very well with Wynwood of Utica! The staff here is very friendly, and they really handled getting her situated and settled in well! They took care of getting her hospital bed ordered and her prescriptions set up, and they've remained very communicative with our family about how she is doing and things she might need.

Great place for mom.

I found Wynwood to be a very good place for my mom. The staff is informative and friendly. If you have questions or problems they are solved quickly. The nurses work with you to get everything your family member needs and will call anytime there is a problem. So far, I have been very satisfied with Wynwood.

Nice place, overall!

They do a very good job overall at Wynwood of Utica! The staff here are incredibly friendly, and very caring and professional to the residents. The facility itself is well kept and clean, and they do a great job looking out for the people who live here.

Nice looking place, not a fan of the floor plans

We toured this community while looking into senior living options. I thought Wynwood of Utica was a very nice place overall, in terms of the care and services they provide. The facility is clean and well kept, and the staff I met were all very friendly. However, I was not a fan of the floor plans here, however.

Staff Has Been Great

My mother has been living here for a few months. Overall, we are happy with our selection. The staff has been great. I would absolutely recommend this community. My Mother seems to enjoy being there. My overall rating for the Wynwood of Utica is 4 Stars. I rated the cleanliness, value, activities, care services, and friendliness all 4 stars. This is a good place for your loved one to stay if your looking for assisted living.

very very good

The people at Wynwood of Utica have been very very good. They have all been very caring and compassionate, and have taken excellent care of my mother. It has been a good experience and I would recommend them.

Seemed like a nice place

We toured this community when we were looking into care options for a loved one. This seemed like a very nice place, overall. I liked that the assisted living and memory care residents were allowed to mix and interact. I was also very impressed by their safety protocols and response times, which they demonstrated during the tour.

Seemed like a nice place, but not a good fit for us

We visited this community when we were looking into senior living options for a loved one. This seemed like a nice enough place, but Mom did not like that the apartments were a single-room setup. She really would prefer it have separate rooms.

not too bad

Lovely place. Slow care response times. Meals are poor.

The staff there is wonderful. great care... great activities.
i heard there service regarding meals could use some help.. the residence would sit sn hour before being served. would rate this area fair. but overall excellent at Wynnwood

This is a lovely facility. ...

This is a lovely facility. Our main concern was that we walked right in and waited at the unattended desk for several (5-7) minutes. A resident advised staff (down the hallway) that we were there.

They are good, but there have been some hiccups getting started.

They are very clean and friendly. They have some good activities. It seems like at least once a week we have to go verify, or clarify things, especially about the medication. The coordination, with the medication, and doctors and nursing staff, needs to be organized better to be more efficient and thorough. I noticed things that they should have noticed, and I am paying to have a liaison with the medical community, who should know more than me and recognize these things.

Very nice looking community

This community was beautiful, and everyone was very friendly. However I didn't think the level of security here would have been appropriate for someone with my loved one's level of memory care needs. They do have a separate memory care facility at a higher price level. This was a very nice looking place, and it was less expensive than some of the other communities we toured. However, I was surprised by the cost of some of the add-on services, for example, the medication service was much more costly than I would have expected for the limited service necessary in my loved one’s case.

Patient and caring staff

My loved one was in their attached memory care facility Clare Bridge of Utica, and I thought they did a fantastic job with his care. He could be very difficult and was easily agitated, but they were so patient and so good with working with him, talking him through things and calming him down. They were also very good at communicating with us. They listened to our description of the type of help that would work best for him, and quickly came up with a routine that worked out great for him. They made his last days so nice, and allowed me to be his daughter instead of his caregiver in the end.

The staff was very informat...

The staff was very informative and friendly and I was very happy with the accommodations. At this point my husband and I are interested in this spot and Northpoint Village of Utica, which we saw this morning. I just need an approx. monthly cost on both locations before I take my mom to check it out.

Not Right For Our Needs

I really liked it but my mom had just come out of a big box place and I knew we would have the same falling issues. It's a beautiful facility with beautiful rooms but I didn't think the care was going to be able to be as close as what another, smaller place was offering. I'd still have the same falling over issue and eventually that's like playing russian roulette.
