It’s vitally important for seniors to have trust in the providers that take care of them, especially when they rely on health providers on a regular basis. Many seniors need help with medication management, personal care, and help around the house. Health providers work very closely with their patients and patients want to know that they will be safe and protected. Award-winning senior care programs have earned a reputation for getting quality reviews and being in the top 1% of quality senior care providers in the country. SeniorAdvisor.com annually gives the Best of Senior Care Awards to the top in-home providers, assisted living providers, and other senior living providers in North America.
One of the best ways to ascertain the quality of senior care is to read reviews by past residents or clients. It pays to do an internet search to learn what others have to say about a facility or their staff and how strong of a rating they give to senior providers.
Some seniors can live independently, but they need a little help with certain tasks. Typical services that are provided in an assisted living facility are personal care, transportation, cooking, light housekeeping, minor home repair, and light gardening.
Brookdale North has several assisted living campuses where seniors can live close to restaurants, shopping, parks, medical facilities, churches, and transportation.

He also stated that he gave the staff five stars, but he would have liked to have given them six stars.

Seniors that live with Alzheimer’s disease or other symptoms of dementia will have changes in their behavior. Families may have also have safety concerns for seniors that tend to wander and get lost due to dementia symptoms. Facilities that specialize in Alzheimer’s care have adequate staff to follow the symptoms of their clients and give watchful care around the clock to ensure they remain safe.
HarborChase of North Collier also won the Best of 2016 Award for Alzheimer’s Care. Staff is compassionate and strives to give each person’s life a sense of purpose by encouraging new activities and making new friends.
Independent living is also referred to as retirement living. Such communities make it easy for active seniors to enjoy retirement living. Most senior living community living communities offer meals on-site, fitness centers, swimming pools, hiking trails, educational and recreational activities, beauty and grooming services, on-site or visiting medical staff, and transportation.
Brookdale North takes another award for Best of 2016 for Independent Living. One reviewer commented that the facility is bright and cheery, and they loved that medical services were provided right on-site.
