Customer Reviews

I hope you read this review before you make the same mistake I made when choosing a Senior Living Facility for your love one.

The staff at this particular Brookdale Assisted Living facility from the Executive Director, Assisted Living Director, Director of Finance, Health and Wellness Director, Health and Wellness Coordinators, PT, OT and Brookdale Home Health Director, maintenance workers to housekeepers live and breathe the culture and mission of Brookdale Senior Living. I am so grateful for the staff's commitment to the quality of care my dad is receiving. Their willingness to communicate with me gives me great peace of mind. They have met and exceeded the goals set by the Experts at Brookdale Senior Living corporate office. My dad and I are grateful that he has found a home at Brookdale Overland Park assisted living facility.
This past year my dad was in and out of the hospital with eight surgeries, in five different skilled nursing facilities and one assisted living community. March 2019 was our first experience with Brookdale Overland Park skilled nursing, where we discovered a level of care that we had not yet encountered. Only two months after returning to his assisted living facility, he actually gave up and asked for hospice. Their indifference to him and their negligence of his care robbed him not only of his physical well-being but also of his will to live; an unhappy decision for us both.
That’s when I put him in his wheelchair and pushed him a short distance to Brookdale Overland Park Assisted Living. The residents welcomed a new face and engaged him in conversation while we waited for [name removed]. As she was giving us the tour, one of the residents was delighted to let us see his apartment. Dad was impressed and wanted his questions answered.
[name removed] answered many of our questions. When we asked about medications, she introduced us to [name removed], who explained Brookdale’s process using Point Click Care. She showed us the process of tracking the meds from dispensing to ordering and how they are stored. It keeps track of physician orders and care of the resident, demonstrating that we would never have to worry about his medications being correctly administered, overlooked, unavailable, or stolen. The Brookdale protocol eliminates all the deficiencies that were so problematic at his former facility.
[Name removed] said she would have [name removed], the Director of Health and Wellness call me for the other questions I had. I was so encouraged to learn of her position as Director of Health and Wellness, rather than merely a Director of Nursing, and I knew then that Brookdale’s corporate culture was indeed different from all the other facilities I have toured.
[Name removed] called as promised, and we went over all the details of Dad’s care. Then she carefully explained Brookdale's policies and procedures and ethical standards set in place at the community for the residents. [Name removed] was my advocate throughout the whole process of getting dad admitted and becoming a resident in his new home.
I live out of town and am therefore unavailable to visit as often as I would like. This amazing staff communicates with me daily on my dad's needs and care. Whether it be, [name removed], [name removed], [name removed], [name removed], [name removed] or [name removed], I get either a phone call, a text, or an email. They are my eyes at ground level. It is a great relief to know we are all on the same page when it comes to my dad! He's ninety-three, an amputee, and has regained his zest for life thanks to the Brookdale staff, which is the embodiment of the Brookdale mission statement and culture of excellence.
As a former volunteer Ombudsman, I should know what to look for in finding a place for dad. You can research all you want, read the reviews, tour a facility, but unless the corporate mission statement and a culture of excellence is a part of each staff member's vocation, the quality of care for your loved one will be deficient.
I am grateful to each of the staff members at Brookdale Overland Park. I strongly recommend you take a tour and visit with the residents and the associates of Brookdale Overland Park Assisted Living facility before you make a decision, you will be happy you did! We are!
I also want to say thank you to all the staff at Brookdale Overland Park and the experts at Brookdale Senior Living corporate office.

Half the time great

I had the pleasure or displeasure might be a better word. I have mixed emotions about this rehab facility located at 11900 Lamar where I spent 3 weeks after back surgery. It was a bittersweet stay. Let me explain. I'll start with the night shift nursing staff. Because of my pain I was taking 15 mg of oxycodene every 4 hours and a 25 mg fentanyl patch every other day. They were amazing in that my medications were given to me withing 5 minutes of the correct time they were due. Most of the time there was no reason to ring for a nurse. Pretty much the oppossite on the day shift staff. Most of the time my medication arrived 15 minutes late, however, there wwere times when it was 30 to an hour late as I repeatedly rang for the nurse. On one ocassion after ringing every 5 minutes I got my walker after 30 minutes to seek out my nurse. I found her at the medication dispersement desk. I commented to her (I'll let her be anonymouse) "I guess I'll be seeing you in a few minutes", and her commeent to me, an exact quote, "don't count on it". I would like to know the justification for making certain you don't dare get your medication a few minuttes early but it's quite all right for them to be 30 minutes to an hour late! In clossing if you don't need medications it's okay, but if you need medication you need to figure out how to only have the night staff attend to you. I have already posted one review but as I read it I remembered something very important.

LOVE Brookdale of Overland Park!! The staff is amazing. I have only seen the rehab part of the place, but that is beautiful! Their most amazing feature is their therapy gym; huge windows, lots of light, and state of the art equipment. It is a happy place and the therapists are really good at what they do. The price for assisted living is super high-thus only 4 stars- and the food is only adequate, but my overall experience with this Brookdale facility has been super positive!

Just not the right place

We toured this community for my Aunt and Uncle. It was nice and clean. The staff was helpful with our questions.First bld was assisted living and behind that was the memory care. It just wasn't inviting or clean looking it was an older outdated building.

Not many activities...

When I toured Brookdale Overland Park, I noticed that there were not many activities or interaction between the staff and residents. It was not what we were looking for. The place was clean and well maintained.

I would recommend this community

Mom is doing well at Brookdale. The staff are helpful and friendly. The food is great and they offer a lot of activities. The community is clean and I would say it is one of the top communities in Kansas City.

Do not let your loved one stay here

We received terrible service for my parent. Brookdale did not bathe my mother in almost 2 weeks of stay. They also lost (threw out) her hearing aid, costing almost $2500. She also fell twice and received injuries. She was worse off for staying there.

Maintainence

The handymen around the facility really seemed to know what they were doing and all the construction aspects seemed up to standards.

Fun and Friendly

Anything that is wrong in the apartment they fix right away. The culture is that anyone that wants to sit with them is welcome. They have fun activities every single day. The staff is fun and friendly and they make this a great place.

Nothing was awful, but nothing was particularly impressive either.

We toured several Brookdale locations as we were looking into options in the area. They were all pretty similar. Nothing was awful, but nothing was particularly impressive either. They were all just okay.

happy

He is happy at Brookdale Overland Park. Everything is going really well here. I really have no complaints thus far about this facility. It's nice and clean. The staff is friendly.

very responsive

Brookdale Overland Park the staff was very responsive and easy to work with as far as the move went. When my parents were touring the facility we noticed the bathroom needed updating and they actually updated it by the time they moved in. The food is excellent there. It was such a struggle to get my parents there and now that they are they are so happy. They are always talking about how nice the residents are at Brookdale Overland Park. It has made their lives so much easier and mine too. The staff are just darling.

they are great

My mother in law is living at Brookdale Overland Park and they have been great. Everybody has been really friendly. They did a great job helping to get my mother in law in there. They have been very helpful, and everything they said they would do they have delivered on.

So far they are thrilled with Brookdale.

So far they are thrilled with Brookdale. So far, no complaints about food or activities. I would give them a five at this point. One of the reasons we chose them over others we saw was how much we liked the location.

Friendly and welcoming staff!

I think they do an excellent job overall at Brookdale Overland Park! The facility itself is well kept and clean, and the staff are all very friendly and caring people. They put a lot of effort into making sure that new residents feel welcome and integrated, and I think that goes a long way!

5 Stars No Complaints

I feel like when we looked at the place staff was very very nice, I love all the activities that have gotten my grandparents more active than they have been in a long while. No issues everything is addressed and taken care of.

My mom is very happy there.

My mom is very happy there. I have been having some issues with the billing department, but they are trying to work with me. The staff is awesome, they are really nice. I have had to ask a couple of times to have the bed changed or things like that, but they have been awesome about it. The care is really awesome. The food is fine. My major concern is her health, and they do a really good job keeping her healthy.

My Mother in law was in the assisted living area and there were a lot of communications problems that the caregivers did not fully understand. At one point there were 2 people handling over 35+ patients. Also, when a patient pushed the button for assistance the caregiver did not respond until 45 minutes at some points.

Once my mother in law was moved to a different area things became a lot smoother. Overall, it's a great facility and would recommend to anyone. 4/5

Sweet Life at BVP

We were a little overwhelmed at first with numerous calls from the different facilities. We eventually choose this facility based on a suggestion from another facility and searching the internet. My Mother-in-Law was initially put in assisted living, but it became fairly obvious that she/we didn't understand exactly what her requirements would be. Since she needed additional care, she was moved to Skilled Nursing after 4 days. Please note that in assisted living, the ratio of CNA's to patients is about 1 to 20+ patients; therefore, it is rare to have immediate results after pushing the alert button. Sometimes it took up to 30 minutes. Another problem is a language barrier. Apparently most of the CNA's come from Haiti and sometimes they are hard to understand. Since moving to the Skilled Nursing I think she has gotten excellent care. She is basically bed-bound so the facilities aren't of interest to her. I think The Sweet Life at BVP is a great facility with great people working there who want to help their patients. This is not your old style nursing home.

Pleased with Sweet Life at Brookdale

Mom moved into SL and was very excited about her entering assisted living. Our family has been pleased with SL facility overall. Her care givers are good with mom, especially one lady named Ilene. If questions come up the staff is open to listening to our family concerns. Mom has also used their skilled nursing side as well which has been exceptional also.
