Brookdale

With over 642 retirement communities Brookdale Senior Living Solutions is the largest senior living operator in the US. Providing more than 60,000 residents with independent living, assisted living, memory care, and skilled nursing services, Brookdale also offered home health care and hospice care before selling its majority stake in its home health business in 2021. Founded in 1978, Brookdale originally specialized in upscale, urban retirement communities, later branching out to a variety of settings and offering a full range of care services. During the COVID-19 pandemic, Brookdale rose to the challenge of keeping families informed about pandemic protocols, keeping residents in touch with loved ones, and leveraging telemedicine technology. Brookdale also started using pulse oximeters to signal that a resident may have COVID-19, a helpful early indicator before testing was widely available.

 

Led by President, CEO and Director Lucinda M. Baier, Brookdale is nationally recognized not just for senior housing and healthcare excellence, but also for employee training, women in leadership, and for philanthropic initiatives. Dedication to employees as well as residents and families helps ensure that Brookdale attracts and keeps top talent in caregiving. 

 

Brookdale offers signature programs such as B-Fit, an exercise program tailored to older adults, and My Life Story, a storytelling effort that encourages seniors to connect and share their life stories. With comfortable surroundings, a wealth of activities designed for each type of care, and amenities to help residents get the most enjoyment out of life, Brookdale communities offer seniors opportunities to connect, challenge their minds and bodies, and foster their own wellbeing. Brookdale considers it their mission to serve residents with "compassion, respect, excellence, and integrity."

I am so glad that my cousin who was suffering from ALS chose to move into Brookdale Wayne, an assisted living facility for seniors. Over his stay I was very impressed by the sincere concern that the entire staff had for both his physical and emotional well being. His needs were continually re-evaluated to assure that the level of necessary care would be quickly adjusted. The nursing staff is excellent proving daily their high level of expertise in delivering senior health care. I observed only the highest level of respect and courtesy from staff members to all residents, family members and friends. A true sense of a caring community is evident. The high level of compassionate care delivered is not only felt by the resident staying there, but extends well beyond the walls to their family members and friends. If you are searching for a five star assisted living facility; do yourself a favor and give Brookdale Wayne a visit.

I wanted to tell others. My mom loves it here. The food she eats better than I do. She gets to go out for tours for a fee but at least she gets out. Staff is very friendly and she has her own bathroom. Has no tub but has a shower. Kitchen area has a microwave, fridge, and sink. Nice porch area. I give it 5 stars.
