Brookdale Fort Smith Description

Don't worry about the house, start planning your next adventure! We have a variety of floor plans for you to choose from, including studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments that are all pet-friendly. You’re sure to find the perfect apartment to fit your style! No matter what kind of care you need, Brookdale Fort Smith can help.

Plus, if you should ever need any assistance, we're here to help!

Assisted Living
Assisted living is a great option for seniors who need a little help with day-to-day tasks. There are often programs and team members in place in these communities who can provide support with everything from assistance with daily living and basic care to recreational activities and transportation.

Memory Care
Our memory care program is designed to help your loved one feel a sense of belonging and purpose while still preserving their sense of self. 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.

Cooking a meal can be time-consuming, so why not order takeout or go out to eat instead? You can enjoy a dining program that is like eating at your favorite restaurant with friends every day, minus the “going out” part. If you have any suggestions or feedback for our monthly menu, please let us know during our chat. We use mealtime as an opportunity for memory care residents to choose from a healthy, dementia-friendly menu and create a sense of belonging.

    Employee Reviews for Brookdale Senior Living

    3.06 out of 5 stars. Based on 1000 reviews

    Employees 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.

    This place does not allow anyone under 55. That is sad how your age can determine your care.

    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!!
