Customer Reviews

Bad Experience

Terrible experience here! This facility is [Removed] and does not take care of their residents!!

They Would Be Better For Someone Else

I met with them and it was just not the place we wanted. It might have been good for someone else. The tour was good for me to see what it is like here.

A good place

This community was nice and would have been acceptable, however the independent living area was not the size mom was looking for. The staff were friendly and the community seemed clean.

Avoid Brookwood!!!

My advice to all is avoid Brookwood at all cost. Especially if you are there for rehab. They almost let my mother die, because of inept nursing care. I personally had to send her to the emergency room because of a dangerously low oxygen saturation level. She had to be out on a respirator to keep her breathing. The so called RN, did not think she needed anything. Being In the medical business I new better. The aides were rough with her, at one point accusing her of relieving herself in a garbage can in her room. My mother could not stand at that point. Reported to administration nothing was done. I could go on. But you get the picture.

A Great Place excepot

A great place except the residents usually say hello but make little effort to be friendly, which is OK with me. I am a loner. There is what I call "The Queens High Table." 6-8 women who claim a certain table as their own. I have no problem with people always sitting at the same table, but they are so nasty. which upsets the servers who become diffident, Food is good. Every thing else is excellent particularly the lady concierges.

This was not a good experience for us! We were admitted to the Rehab facility for a short stay and we could not wait to leave. There is minimal staff and rude nurses. If you care about your loved one you will find somewhere else for them to stay.

My mother loves it. She's so happy.

My mother loves it. She's so happy. We toured a lot of places and the Brookwood Retirement Community seemed to be the best choice. The important thing is that my mother is happy. Her happiness is above and beyond anything else. It must be a great facility for her to be so happy. The cleanliness is excellent. The friendliness is excellent. The staff was very nice when we toured the facility. They were great.

get more nursing care with experience

I was a resident there with medical and rehab needs. Rehab was fantastic and helped me to get to walk again. Nursing, wound care services were not good. Had to be taken back to hospital ER at midnight because my wound care services and nursing care did not have right supplies or the experience to care adequately for me. Extremely upset with nursing lack of care. Too many patients for RN nursing care too many lazy care givers of lower levels. Food was not good and the kitchen never could get orders correct, broken dishwasher ate off of plastic plates and it was nevered delivered appropriately. The State should really review.

Filthiest place in the Cincinnati area.

This is the worst filthy disgusting senior place in the cincinnati area by all means government- The Ohio health department ought to shut it down; it is indeed a health hazard for our elderly.
The third floor is horrific the smell in each corridor is so overwhelming the carpet the walls are so creepy.
Staff are overworked and are underpaid yet leaders and management are completely negligence of their duties.
Please do not send your loved ones to rehab.
Avoid enrolling your parents especially on the third floor.

Friendly, helpful staff

Overall things have gone very well at Brookwood! It's a nice looking community, and they do a great job keeping everything clean and well kept. I thought that the nurses were excellent, and they always took the time to help and answer questions whenever I had them. They also seemed to have a good variety of activities going on to keep the residents busy!

Nice looking community

We toured this community when we were looking into care options for a loved one. Overall this was a nice looking place, the facility itself was clean, and the staff we met were friendly and helpful. We ended up choosing a different community based on past experiences with them, but this place is definitely worth a look!

My mother fell at home and went here ...

My mother fell at home and went here for rehab, she fractured her shoulder and ended up maxing out her 100 days. We decided not to stay because I wasn't really 100% comfortable with what was there. I don't think they could have done anything to change that. It was clean and she did recieve rehab, part of our concern was she was starting to reach the point where she wasn't improving any longer and we as a family, and with mom's very strong position of "I've got a home, I can move back to it," we said alright and on the morning of the day she was going to move back, I got a call at 4 am saying she had fallen and gone to the hospital. She messed her face up, her eye, fractured her shoulder and with that she maxed out her 100 days. Part of my disappointment with them is they allowed to her to get out of bed, she was a fall risk already and she wasn't restrained to keep her from falling.

Clean, nice atmosphere, Mom would have to navigate between floors to get to dining room etc. Doctors etc. come to facility. Beauty parlor, banking on sight. Mom would have to go to nurses station for her meds.

From the Community

Brookwood Retirement Community is a Continuing Care Retirement Community. Brookwood offers Independent and Assisted Living Apartments, short term skilled nursing, and long term care all within the same facility.

Brookwood’s apartments are duel certified, meaning they are all both Independent and Assisted Living. This allows us to be very flexible in many different scenarios. We are able to provide services in an ala carte fashion, transition people from Independent to Assisted Living without switching apartments, and keep couples together even if they need different levels of care.

Brookwood’s skilled nursing has recently received a perfect State Survey, and has a 4 star Medicare rating. All nursing and therapy staff have been trained in cardiac recovery, which allows us to safely care for residents after difficult cardiac surgery. Brookwood also has a specialized wound nurse, who is specifically trained to care for even the most difficult wounds, and work with local physicians on wound care. Brookwood also offers lymphademia therapy, aquatic therapy, specialized dementia specialists in therapy, and one on one treatment.
