Not a good choice for your family,they charge The family over the limit,a lot of residents have to move out because after a year or 2 they are broke,all Brookdale care about is the money,the aides don’t work together,they don’t talk to each other, Plus the AIDES don’t get paid enough to do what the want them to do,& all the nurses do is just sit around with each other and chat,if there a emergency card going off, & a aid can’t go,the nurses just sit and make order,they don’t go to see what the residents need,when you really think the residents come first over Brookdale in Farmington,think again,it’s like a playground ,no rules nor’s the first place I see so many people on light duty for years ,you can’t do the job ,get people to do it..I wouldn’t recommend a single soul to either go live or any person to apply for a job there! SORRY!

It is a great place to live! I wish I had moved here years ago. There are so many interesting activities; the food is very good; I make new friends every month; and the programs are entertaining and informative. There is no place I would rather live at this stage in my life.

My dear friend Frederick Gear is a resident there and his daughters myself and of course Freddy love it. Freddy turn 100 on October 4 and they had a shindig for him as he would say. They are very professional and yes very kind. Thank you for looking after him. Lily Hernandez San Juan Puerto Rico

My Grandmother lived at The Gables at Farmington for almost 4 yrs before she passed away. When she arrived she was confused and shy. Staff and other residents gave her gentle encouragement to participate in programs and to socialize on the patio. She soon grew to love The Gables and enjoyed her time there until she passed away. Her apartment was beautiful, the food was good and the Private Dining Room was home to our Holiday dinners once it became too hard to bring her home on Holidays anymore. Would recommend to anyone.
