1-3-24………7 month review of Brookdale Des Plaines a new resident……my opinions have only gotten better and stronger. The short version…COME AND JOIN US!!!! Or……read on…. The # one reason for my opinion of continued satisfaction is that the management AND staff continue to administer their responsibilities at the highest level, on a 24/7/365 basis! Things that stand out after 7 months is the attitude / dedication of the entire staff, food, house-keeping, maintenance, At-home services, activities, even busing, GREAT people doing GREAT jobs with terrific attitudes, smiles on their faces. Making certain the residents get all the assistance that they need. House-keeping of this 10 story building is relentless…and appreciated!!! Note. I have not mentioned Medical/nursing care because I am not in Assisted Living, so I do not have much contact with those services. However, I do use the on-site Physical Therapy service which has proved to be exceptional.
