Brookdale Lake View review Terence - Child of resident/client
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. Our loved one did say the meals were kind of a draw back, they changed vendors and when that happened the meals sort of declined.

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!
My tour review Diana M - Toured community
This community was fine, the guide was very pleasant and helpful just was not the community that I was looking for.
M. A. - Toured community
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 Meegan - Child of resident/client
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.
Highly recommend for a loved one Brenda N - Child of resident/client
We really enjoy the way they communicated with us and they were very willing to work with our family. They really did go above and beyond while our loved one was there.
my review Anonymous - Child of resident/client
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.
A Nice Place

Brookdale Lake View is a clean place and the staff was nice. They did what they could to make the residents as comfortable as possible. The room sizes were very large. Overall it was a positive experience.
Review of Brookdale Lake View Walter "Wally" Motyka - Resident/client
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 Betty Miglorati - Resident/client
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 Thelma Schwartz - Resident/client
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.

The staff at Brookdale is excellent! I feel very safe living here. Everyone takes care of us. They check on us all the time. Good meals, 3 times a day. Everything we need we get.
Review of Brookdale Lake View Alathia Evans - Resident/client
The day my husband and I toured the community we really liked the property and the living quarters. My husband passed away 6 months after we moved here, the staff was very very kind to me and my family.
Review of Brookdale Lake View Susan Fellion - Resident/client
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.
Review of Brookdale Lake View Sue Cronin - Resident/client
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.
Review of Brookdale Lake View Mary Lou Wade - Resident/client
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 Judith Clasen - Resident/client
Our New Year's Eve party was the best ever: menu, entertainment, decor. It really brought the community together.
Review of Brookdale Lake View Jerome Johnson - Resident/client
Under the stewardship of CEO [name removed] a dedicated caring staff performs everyday miracles that makes this residence and community a place I proudly call home.
Review of Brookdale Lake View Herminia "Mimi" Camacho - Resident/client
We will be living in Brookdale Lake View 6 years by [date removed]. We are both happy and enjoying all the activities, especially events celebrations. All management and associates are doing very good job especially our Executive Director - [name removed]. Brookdale Lake View has a friendly atmosphere. A shout out to all services afforded to us to be safe and healthy.
Review of Brookdale Lake View Eva Stewart - Resident/client
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.
