Im moving out

If you are 80 or over you may like it, I am a bit younger so the crowd is much different for me. The staff are very pleasant and very helpful with everything, and overworked.

Review of Brookdale Lake Shore Drive

All staff pleasant, good location. Except for Senior Living most entrees, soups and sauces too salty. Need nutritionists to make changes. Laundry room unattended! Filthy garbage all over. Machines dirty dryer dirty, needs repair for months. Door has to be prop to a chair to keep closed. Wrapped and garbage are left scattered always. Trash and garbage chute overflowing often! Cockroaches cited in the laundry room, trash area, and even on the first floor.

Review of Brookdale Lake Shore Drive

#1- friendly staff, great location. #2- Meals overly salted, vegetables always overcooked, no nutrients. Separating salt from entrees would be a better suggestion. #3- Trash chute mostly overloaded and Spilled to the floor. Left that way for days. #4- Laundry room tissues not removed from garments. Thrown all over the floor and in tumbler.

Review of Brookdale Lake Shore Drive

Very disappointed. No communication with tenants, unbelievably long wait for issues to be resolved, if ever. Doors to laundry room too hard for an old person to open. Washing machines and dryer in unit industrial size for me to reach, have torn my rotator cuff and pulled muscles from reaching both appliances. And food is barely edible! Not what I was promised. Some of this has nothing to do with covid-19, just poor management.

Excellent residents. Staff aims to make this your home. Residents have excellent programs that keep us alert, imaginative, busy. We write plays, poetry, have a symphony, chorus, encourage families to join us be one in the community. If you can find other residences like this, don't hesitate, come and be part of the group. We are family!

A difficult time for a review at the Covid-19 issue. The staff all have gone above and beyond to keep us safe. I'm sure that no other place could be better. They are providing activities for getting together/visiting family, etc.

Review of Brookdale Lake Shore Drive

I think the community has done a very good job keeping us safe during the pandemic. I'm quite satisfied living here. In ordinary times there are enough classes and entertainment to keep one occupied. The food is consumable, overall, quite good, but certainly not exceptional. The staff here has been helpful during this pandemic period and the young helpers have really excelled.

Review of Brookdale Lake Shore Drive

During the pandemic, I feel that I couldn't live in any better, safer place than Brookdale Lake Shore Drive (Chicago). It's extraordinary how management rose to the task and put into place procedures and policies that protected its populations, either assisted living or independent residents. We went into an effective lockdown, with members of management and floor captains actually living in the facility to serve us. Few people were allowed in the building. Food was brought to our doors. Most importantly, management constantly communicated with residents, letting them know when residents were being isolated because of the virus and any relevant news. Zoom classes and activities through some continuity to life. Now some restrictions are being lifted slowly, according to expert advice and consultations.

Review of Brookdale Lake Shore Drive

The physical building is comfortable and attractive and kept in good condition. The employees for the most part are very pleasant and accommodating. The activities are minimal, could be more interesting. My one complaint is the food. It is terrible and overcooked, mushy, fresh veggie, and fruit old and not tasteless. No one in this building will do anything about it.

A very nice facility!

When I toured Brookdale Lake Shore Drive, I also thought it was a nice place. Every community that I toured had its pros and cons. The staff was very friendly. The tour guide that took me around was very knowledgeable and friendly, but we found another community that for my mother's needs best.
