Customer Reviews

Look Beyond the Furnishings...

My loved one lived here, but no more. Many believe that this place is the best money can buy. The furnishings are nice, but don't be fooled. If you need memory care or skilled nursing...beware! Some (not all) nurses and aides are just awful. Patients' needs are often ignored and families who dare to complain are "subtly" retaliated against. Really. Nurses are very slow to respond to call buttons. I would frequently see call lights on for my entire visit. I often heard patients yelling, "help" with no response. On more than one occasion, I approached the nurse's station to let them know about a patient calling for help. The only response I ever got was a blank stare or a nod. They could have cared less.
This is a very clannish group. They cover for each other no matter what. Also, better have deep pockets if you decide to place your loved one here. ALL families are expected to contribute to their employee Christmas fund, and if they don't like the amount you give...well, once again, you and your loved one pay the price. I wish someone had written an honest review of this place when I was searching. Do not be swayed by the lovely grounds and expensive furniture in the main house. In the end, it's about the level of medical care and attention that your loved one receives. Do NOT put someone that you care about here!

We were very surprised to see this review. King-Bruwaert House, now celebrating its 85th anniversary, continues to be recognized as one of the finest continuing care communities in the Midwest. We have excellent staff-to-resident ratios that result in personalized care and service. Our staff understands the importance of being professional and courteous to our residents. We try to be responsive to individual needs and respect the important role that family members have in the lives of their loved ones.
At K-B House, it is our policy to immediately address concerns when they are brought to our attention, such as staff being unresponsive or unwilling to be of assistance. In fact, we encourage regular conversations with our Senior Director of Nursing, Assistant Director of Nursing, Unit Managers, and Social Worker to resolve any issues that may arise. Follow-up discussions ensure resolution to concerns. During our last Satisfaction Survey, 92% of residents and 88% of family members responded that they would recommend King-Bruwaert House to others. We take great pride in knowing that our professionalism and care are highly respected and shared with others.
In our Skilled Nursing and Memory Care Units, we provide care for residents of varying degrees of cognition, which may not be well understood by all visitors. Repetition of words or phrases are common behaviors that require patience and understanding. Person-centered care is our paramount objective.
On a separate note, King-Bruwaert House operates as a private, not-for-profit community that accepts donations throughout the year for our Annual Fund and other programs – but we would never expect anyone to make a contribution without their full support of our ideals and mission.
Rather than share a negative review with readers, we would strongly encourage the writer of this commentary to contact our Senior Director of Nursing at [removed]. She would be happy to address any concerns.

Should have moved here sooner!

As a resident my husband and I are truly blessed to have found KB House. The staff is amazing...they treat us like royalty. The food is superb...comparable to a fine restaurant. We live in one of the townhouses and they deliver meals to our house piping hot and ready to eat. There is so much offered...including a garden that produces fresh vegetables that you can pop over and pick fresh.

The one comment I hear from other residents is we should have moved here sooner. The folks here are outgoing and very friendly.

My husband had a stay in health care and the nursing was caring and efficient.

It's a very good place.

It's a very good place. They have made a good effort to come and get her for activities. The dining room is big and gorgeous, with a fireplace, and cloth tables, that we saw on the walk through, but that's not where the memory care residents eat. It was a bit misleading, but other than that, they do a good job with her.

A Treasure

My mother was a resident of KB for 13 years and was treated with utmost respect and dignity. Their loving care coupled with the support she required medically allowed her to enjoy her later years. The food was wonderful and they come to know the preferences of each resident and anticipate their needs. The grounds are lovely and the house is beautifully maintained. Words simply are not adequate to describe this special place.

Disappointed

Beautiful place, but the staff is extremely rude to residents. On a bad day, they can range from patronizing to downright disrespectful. If you try to talk to anyone about it, you will be treated even worse.

Beautiful!

It was beautiful, like in an arboretum. They were excellent but too far out for us. As far as outdoors and just the setting - it was great.
