Brookdale Lake View review

Our loved one were there for 10 years, and unfortunately had to leave because they did not accept medicaid. However, it was kept very clean, the staff were very nice and did a really good job keeping up with all the changes in the protocols. They constantly checked everyone's temperatures and kept families up to date. It is a cooperate community so much bigger with more residents.

A Great Place for Mom and Dad

This would be a good place if you have a relative to go into a residential community, that offers a lot. It is close to a lot shopping centers. The people are very nice and helpful. They have a lot of activities for the residents to choose from. Such as crafts, bingo, and more. The food is good!

I was impressed by the virtual tour initially and by the person. The people I met were knowledgeable and wonderful. The only thing was it didn't seem to have very many staff around when we visited on a weekend.

A Great Community for Seniors

I would tell others that the community has very friendly atmosphere. My loved one is doing well here. The community has lots of opportunities to meet other residents. Overall, we have been really pleased with the experience. The staff is willing to coordinate things. We feel safe having my loved one here, especially during the pandemic, due to the community's health record.

This community is extremely well run, even when short staffed and during the pandemic. The staff is exceptional! They do have hospice service at Brookdale also. They also have additional companion care. I would recommend this community to others. The services and care we are getting for our money are very good. the food is excellent.

Review of Brookdale Lake View

As a resident in this community, I have been taking part in the activities arranged by the staff of Resident Programs. They are many and varied, from simple card and board games to occasional excursions to restaurants, theaters, and ball games. That along with the appetizing meals in the dining room has made living here a pleasant experience.

Review of Brookdale Lake View

Choosing Brookdale Lake View as my new home is one of the best decisions I have ever made. (I have lived here for six years). There are not adequate words to describe the Brookdale Lake View staff. So, I will simply say: Thank you for helping me feel cared for; safe; smart (we have so many brain games); happy; fun-loving; worthwhile; etc. Most importantly, thank you for always being there for us no matter what!

Review of Brookdale Lake View

I've been listening to the newscasters this morning and they are discussing the problems people are having staying safe, getting food, and dealing with this isolation during the pandemic. I am so grateful that I am at Brookdale. There are the normal concerns that everyone has over the uncertainty, the isolation and problems we are living through but I am at peace because I know my basic needs will be met and my family and friends are not put to extra risk trying to take care of me. Every day that I am here I enjoy the view, the lights streaming into my room, the very good food that I know will be there, the caring staff members who have always been kind and helpful, as well as their reading material and the puzzles that [name removed] sent so I can remain occupied. Thank you, [name removed], for being on top of everything and setting the bar high for the rest of the Brookdale Lake View staff.

Review of Brookdale Lake View

My granddaughter lives in a condo across the street. She votes at Brookdale LV. She said, "Grandma why don't you move there. They all look so happy and are friendly." Several years later, I did. She was so right. Friendly people. Administrators and employees helpful and you don't wait forever. Plenty of activities, wonderful atmosphere. Special parties. Good food. I couldn't be in a better place.

I've been at BLC for 3 years. One of my favorite pastimes is activities, [name removed], our Program Director, has done a great job organizing events and things to do. I've attended an opera, club games, theatre, restaurants, played bridge, mah jongg plus many games like bingo, crossword puzzles. Better yet, parties, New Year's Eve we had a live band, Halloween costumes party, Santa Claus was here, I could go on and on. BLV is a wonderful place to live and enjoy senior life.

Brookdale LV is a caring and convenient community. Caring, because the staff goes out of its way to know you - your name, your background, your interests, and your "likes and dislikes." Together they form care for residents. The Lake View location is enviable. The view and Lake Michigan, the close by Lincoln Park, and proximity to shops, the nearby busses, and the shuttle service all add to the convience of my home!

Review of Brookdale Lake View

Living at Brookdale has been a positive experience for me. Several staff members have gone beyond their job description to be helpful in many ways, especially with electronics. That is one area in which I am somewhat challenged. I've appreciated how many of the residents and staff have helped me celebrate my birthdays in style - typically with some type of musical entertainment and refreshments. There are so many programs offered at Brookdale Lake View that sometimes it is difficult to make a decision as to which ones might be best for you. I have especially enjoyed the Arts Programming. Getting to know the other participants in the group a little better is a plus and our leader is a real encourager who always finds something good about our work. There are so many other programs and outings that are also very good. I recommend you really take the time to check out Brookdale Lake View.
