We strive to provide the best possible care for your loved one by ensuring that they are consistently cared for by the same associates. Featuring a secure environment, our memory care communities provide the same level of comfort and security as a private home.

You can enjoy a dining program that is like eating at your favorite restaurant with friends every day, minus the “going out” part.

Employee Reviews for Brookdale Senior Living
3.06 out of 5 stars. Based on 1000 reviewsEmployees of Brookdale Senior Living generally have positive things to say about the company. They appreciate the free parking, paid orientation and training hours, and nice residents. However, they have noted that the health insurance is expensive and the deductibles are high. Additionally, CNA's PTO for the first year is nearly nonexistent and the pay deposit system is unusual. There is also a lack of work-life balance, as employees are often called in on days off due to staff shortages. Employees have also reported that management does not advocate for them and that communication is not always good. They have also noted that the pay rate is low and that the facility is often understaffed. Employees have also reported that the security system is an issue and that the training is too automated. Advice to management includes improving communication, fostering staff development, enhancing benefits, and stopping taking credit for work that the front-line workers conduct.

This place is under terrible management. Jennifer has been very non compassionate when it came to the care of my grandmother. They will nickel and dime you because they have been struggling to keep residents so they are trying to make up profits elsewhere. The elderly deserve better care than this place offers.
A very nice place for my dads future. This place is very clean, dad says food is great and at a great price. Dad's not happy moving away from home but the staff has tried to make him feel welcome . He gives them a hard time but they just keep smiling. No joke this is a great place!!
