I went on a preliminary tour without Mom. The single bedroom was somewhat spacious and was light filled. Spoke with the chef about a vegetarian diet for Mom. Following this, scheduled Mom to come and tour. They gave her the tour and had current residents for her to meet and she decided to make the move. I knew it would be an adjustment not knowing anyone. Brookdale tries to address this aspect by assigning a volunteer to be an ambassador to go with new residents to meals and such. However the ambassador, once early mission accomplished, was ready to go back with her friends. Since tables seat 4, there was no room for Mom. Staff serving meals did not really make an attempt to get to know Mom. The vegetarian dinner option turned out to mostly be salad, which really doesn't provide a great deal of nutrition. Mom called to let me know that she had gone to several of the activities listed on the monthly schedule, but none were actually taking place. I asked her to go to each one listed and make a note as to which ones actually occurred and which did not. Most did not. In addition to these "activities", there were also "movie nights" without movies. Since she moved in mostly to gain a social life, she decided she may as well move back home. Although she still has little company, she is free to roam in her own home on her own schedule. Based on her experience, cannot recommend Brookdale for a long-term living solution for lonely senior years but it may suit other needs.
