Customer Reviews

Although I did not like the property and the rooms were extremely tight, [name removed] is a jewel! She's called and offered additional suggestions to me and is so kind. She stayed late after her shift ended to walk me through when I visited last month.

Don't allow your loved ones here for a minute!

I think the staff might have submitted the other reviews for self preservation reasons. this place is horrible. there are no activities for the dementia/Alzheimer patients. there is limited care for these patients. they are kept in a locked section with only activity is to be stuck in front of a television set. the rooms smell because no one cleans. the staff are busy on their cell phones. the patient belongings come up missing. they don't honor the special prices when you sign the paperwork so wait for the surprise in the mail. medication? not sure if that is possible when there is so much anxiety seen in the patients. Do not put your loved ones here if they need the assistance!!! They only care about the money.

[name removed] was a fantastic tour guide! Everyone we met on our Brookdale tour was professional and friendly. The facility is in need of some upgrades, which we understand are scheduled. The Memory Care facility was clean and bright in appearance, but there was a slight odor which was a little off-putting. Otherwise the place appears to be a lovely Assisted Living facility.

Everyone that I met was very nice, added more information. The facilities were clean and comfortable looking and they offered everything that my mother-in-law might need The one offer that puts this to the top....they have a suite for her to use for 30 day as soon as we arrive with her in Georgia.

Lovely Tour

This is a lovely facility, and my tour of it went well overall.

Very Satisfied with this Community

I couldn't be happier with my decision to move my mother to this community. She is doing very well, and she seems to like it. I'am very pleased with all they have done for us. Everyone has been very welcoming, and accepting of my mother. The staff is amazing, they are friendly, and have been helpful when needed. She has gotten involved with the activities they have available. She is safe, and in good hands in this community.

Amazing! We fell in love with this place. [Removed] gave us a tour. She was so attentive. The staff all had smiles and seemed to be genuinely happy to be working at Brookdale. The residents were happy and seemed to be receiving wonderful care an attention. As much as I know I should, I really do not see the need to visit any other places.

I really like this place but the 500 additional costs just to check my mother's blood sugar is over the top.

We had A Nice Tour of This Community

We toured this community for my mother in law, and her needs. Our tour went well, and everyone was very kind. The staff was kind, and informative. Our questions were answered. It was a good experience was a good one, but we didn't feel this was the right for my mother in law.

Amazing Staff!!

I am so pleased with how things are going so far at this community for my mother. She has improved so much since we made the move for her into the memory care unit. They have her on a great routine with lots of activities and helping out with different things throughout the facility to keep her busy. She really loves everyone and has truly made a great transition and I could not be happier.

Very happy with Brookdale. The staff is wonderful and they take great care of my mom!

Not a good fit!

The staff here was very nice and very helpful. They showed us around and the place was really nice. The layput was a little much and we did not think that it would fit my dad. They also did not specialize in memory care even though they have a department. Just not the right place.

My Visit To The Community

The staff I met at this community were nice and knowledgeable. The rooms at this community seemed smaller. The price was comparable to the community we chose. This community seemed clean.

Although we will not be using Brookdale Marietta I found everyone there to be extremely helpful and caring. I was very happy to have the opportunity to be able to place my mother at this facility.

A better place!

As a whole we really like the place. However, mom is not adjusting very well to being here. She has started getting involved with singing and the music. She just would like to be home. I like that mom has 2 big windows in her room and they let us paint the room the color mom wanted. They have been very accommodating with us. Mom likes her therapy that they provide.

Helpful Staff !!

The tour my loved one and I took of this community was delightful, the staff where very kind and made sure to answer any questions we might have had for them. The building was kept very clean and they had a wide range of bedroom packages to choose from. The location was just too far for my family.

Good Experience

My friend had a pleasant experience here at this community. It is a nice place, and everything went well. He was in good hands, and we were pleased.

Over The Top Staff!!

I loved the staff they are so wonderful. The care is good but we had an incident that wasn't noticed right away. Housekeeping kept her room clean and maintained. The community is very clean and has no smell. My only concern is there are lots of residents matching the ratio of staff.

It seems to be pretty good.

It seems to be pretty good. The only issue we have had, is getting on the same page when it comes to billing and paperwork. They are clean, and the staff is friendly, and attentive. I really don't have any complaints other than the billing difficulty.

Brookdale Marietta really fit our needs

Nea Latif was incredible. She made herself available to me 24/7 and was always quick to respond to my endless questions. The entire staff understood our particular situation and made it as seamless a transition as one could expect.

Unsatisfied

My father was in Emeritus at Spring Mountain for over a year. He fell several times and was not taken care of appropriately. He is a diabetic and was given insulin when his blood sugar was too low. He was not eating and lost 25lbs. due to the unappetizing food and small portions.
After he was hospitalized and transferred to rehab, he was not accepted back on the last day of his rehab. This put the family in a difficult position trying to find another assisted living in one day. Shortly after, his things were removed from the facility on 4/10/14. We had already paid a full months charges and we have not seen reimbursement for the rest of the month. Every time I call, I am told that they will look into it. I am going to have to complain to the Better Business Bureau and try to contact the corporate office to get some resolution.

Happy Residents

Overall it was a four. It was a little bigger – two stories – I preferred, at least in my mom’s case, I prefer everything be on one level. I was there for one activity and the leader was very interactive with the residents. All the residents looked very happy.

Feels like Family

This is a literally a family – you just feel like you are being enveloped by family members not staff. I’ve never seen anyone unhappy be it residents or staff – everyone is always smiling and willing to help. What I’ve seen of the food – it looks delicious.

I like it. It’s nice and clean

I like it. It’s I like it. It’s nice and cleanaken of. I don’t really agree with the food program. My parents feel like… like it’s always noodles. There’s no bread – you have to ask for it. They have a nice courtyard for residents. They have outtings.

This is Dads new home! Charming lovely and warm. Kandi and the staff are heaven sent. The moment I walked in I felt at home and smiled like a child on Christmas morn.

Nice place on the outside a...

Nice place on the outside and rooms aren't bad. The staff is another issue. Very slow and un-consistant on medication and diabetic testing. They are not provide level of care that we are paying for. She's only been there 5 weeks, and it is going down hill.

They are very unorganized, but when I first went to look at it, I didn't see it.

They are very unorganized, but when I first went to look at it, I didn't see it. It seems like they will agree with everything you say, then turn around behind your back. They showed us one room but then switched it with another room and the carpets weren't cleaned like they were supposed to be. The room they showed us had a kitchenette the one they put us in did not. The showers were different too, the one they showed us you could wheel a chair right in and the one we got has a lip you have to step over. They told us that we needed a certain level of care for assistance, and told us that covered certain things that it actually didn't cover, so then we had to up the level of care. They don't bathe her as often as they are supposed to. They don't do the laundry when they say they will. The CNA's medication records are so sloppy that certain things are not even being logged correctly, and they don't always bring it on time. You can only use one home health care company at the same time unless one doesn't offer the thing that is needed. The price seems awfully high for what you get. They do have a good amount of activities going on. The food is a little bland but it tastes okay.

The representative did not show up for a 1 pm appointmemt after she insisted I visit. The memory care unit smelled like urine.

We feel in love with the property and staff, especially Kandie Black. Exceptional service and attention. Selected because of care they will receive, staff, cleanliness, and location.

Great job

I had a great experience interviewing Emeritus. They were very helpful and went the extra mile to help me place my mom. Thank you so much. I really appreciate you all. God bless

I like the place a lot, but...

I like the place a lot, but my dad wife wants to be on the first floor and nothing was avaiable for her.

Friendly, straightforward, excellent

My dad was pretty happy there, they're very caring, they listened to what we needed to do. He ended up being at the upper level of care that they provided, I was really happy with the care, they were always friendly, they're very good people. We actually got a pretty decent deal; dad was a little limited on his funds and they gave him a companion/dual space and they gave him a real good deal with that, plus when we came in we had already lined up a different assisted living but they decided dad was too high of care so we were scrambling when we found Emeritus. When dad was in the hospital they came to visit him and sent him get well cards. They were even going to help us transition to a rehab and help us out with that. Overall they just did an excellent job.

They have a mental care facility

We chose the Emeritus at Spring Mountain because they offer assisted living and also have a mental health facility for dementia and alzheimer's. It is nice to know that my loved one will not have to move to a new facility if they are ever diagnosed with dementia or alzheimer's. There was also a great all-inclusive offer that helped us decide on the Emeritus. (I did not feel comfortable rating their Care Services at this time.)

Visited 2/2/13 with mom & dad. Wonderful atmosphere. Felt very active. Very small rooms. Only (2)1 bedrooms in whole place. One will be opening very soon. Cannot see mom & dad in a studio here. Publix literally next door - a bonus and minus. Ugly to look out the window but very convenient.
