Ian C.Great staff. Really cared about our family and situation
Linda Fletscher B.The staff are always pleasant and patient with the residents. I’m always amazed when I visit that I never hear any negative communication-always positive- and I know that can’t be easy at times!
Barbara A.We are so thankful that my mother was able to spend the last months of her life at Brookstone. The administration and staff could not have been nicer or more supportive. She received excellent care. Everyone did their best to meet her increasing... needs while treating her with respect and kindness. I only wish that she had been able to live there a long time and enjoy the many activities and the prevalent family atmosphere. Even the registered nurse from Hospice was complimentary of Brookstone's outstanding care. After mother passed away, everyone at Brookstone was so empathetic and kind to us. We will always believe that moving my mother to Brookstone was the best thing we could have done for her at this time. Our sincere thanks and gratitude to the employees at Brookstone.read more
David T.The team at Brookstone is taking great care of my 88 year old mother. Samantha, Michelle, Mary and their teams are professional, attentive and keep the well-being of their residents at the forefront of all they do. Could not be happier!
Janet M.My dad has been living at Brookstone for over a year. He really likes his apartment, being able to socialize with peers and interacting with the amazing staff. The staff members are very friendly and consistently go out of their way to engage with... residents and family members. Activities manager, Michelle Agee, regularly plans special themed events to keep up everyone's spirits. Even during quarantine, one can find her delivering root beer floats, mocktails, etc...directly to residents' rooms. Janet Roy is a lso very helpful and provides on-time transportation services for residents when family members aren't able to take their loved ones to appointments. Kim, the lead RN, is extemely attentive and, if needed, will sit with residents to assist them during medical televisits. After the visit, she'll contact the family to provide requested updates. Earlier in the quarantine when residents had to eat in their rooms, the Kitchen manager went out of his way to provide a variety of menu options and to ensure the food was warm when delivered. Our family is very thankful for the Brookstone team.read more
ChevonneBrookstone is a beautiful community with a dedicated, compassionate staff. The staff is committed to meeting residents’ needs and exceeding all expectations. The staff takes the time to get to get to know the residents and family members and are... able to create a loving familial environment. My fellow staff members are positive, upbeat and always helpful which is a direct reflection of our management. Every staff member is amazing in their own right but Juanita Swington stands out. As a fellow part time employee, she leaves her mark as being one of the sweetest, hardworking, and most caring members every shift she works. I could go on and on about the amazing management, staff, and residents but I think it’s pretty clear that anyone would be lucky to be a member of the Brookstone Family!!!!!!read more
richard I.I would like to thank all of the Brookstone team members for working so hard to provide a safe, healthy, happy environment for my family members and the residents at Brookstone Assisted Living. Brookstone has a team of dedicated, hardworking... caregivers and staff who go above and beyond for residents and families. There are wonderful people in every department helping with personal care/health, maintaining rooms, scheduling and transporting, creating special events/activities, and fantastic food! I would not hesitate to recommend Brookstone to anyone.read more
Jimmie B.I work in the health care industry and specifically with seniors. I’ve had friends in many assisted living facilities in NWA. Brookstone is without a doubt the very best! All the staff are genuine in their desire to care for all their residents.... The leadership team maintains a hands on approach. They truly lead by example.My brother and I moved our cousin to Brookstone in 2007 and she would not want to live anywhere else. Our Mother is now living at Brookstone. She is always bragging about how good the food is and how nice everyone treats her. If you have a loved one who needs to move into an Assisted Living Community - you can have the peace of mind that they will be taken care of by skilled, compassionate & caring staff.read more
Jenny S.UPDATE, 9/25/2020:We/Brookstone has now gone through 7 months of the COVID19. It initially had limited cases of the Coronavirus - all in Memory Support, where it is extremely difficult to "contain" residents, but none in Assisted Living. Brookstone... immediately got on top of the situation & has not had a case in 3 months, for which I am grateful. The employees continue to be its star point; I'd especially like to give a shout-out to Bernice, who is a Personal Care Assistant/CNA there. She has seen to my mother as if she were her own mother, & I appreciate her diligence, devotion & dedication. The food has continued to be delicious, flavorful & enticing to senior people. Although the activities have had to be scaled-back, Brookstone has successfully opened-up small groups of physically-distanced activities to the residents. If your loved one is a kind-of introverted person, as my mother is, the employees there will check in to sit with that resident; something I'm thankful for. In the tough times of the pandemic, I still recommend Brookstone whole heartedly!I cannot speak highly enough of Brookstone Assisted Living! My 91 year-old mother has been at Brookstone for the past 5 months, & we have found it to be a truly stellar, excellent place for our senior loved one. They have more-than-fulfilled all of our needs & expectations, and more. What makes this Assisted Living facility the excellent place that it is are the incredible people who work there; you will seriously not find a more exceptional staff anywhere on the planet. The rooms are very nice; comfortable, roomy & each includes a kitchenette & bathroom. My mother was 1st in Assisted Living & has recently moved to the Memory Care area; both have a lot of advantages. The food here is amazing; not only have they been able to put some much-needed weight on my tiny mother, but I & several of our family members have greatly enjoyed dining here. They are more-than-accommodating to the more "finicky" tastes of the senior population, while attending to their special nutritional needs. Dining is just an extremely pleasurable experience here - breakfast, lunch (called "dinner") & dinner (called "supper")! Both Assisted Living & Memory Care have a full complement of activities going on every single day, no matter if you are a highly-ambulatory senior who enjoys exercising & walking, or are a more sedentary person who enjoys seated activities. The 24/7 nursing & CNA staff here are all dedicated, compassionate people who have specialized understanding of older adults. The staffing here is designed to cover all needs, including transportation. Brookstone just keeps impressing me with their devotion & allegiance to all of their residents! A huge thumbs-up to this "home away from home" for your loved one!read more
