brookdale.com 4 Brookdale Senior Living Customer @2014-08-28 The staff is friendly and helpful28-Aug-2014The company is not forward thinking in the way they view older people. The food is unimaginative and sub-par in terms of presentation. The activities are also lacking in imagination and presentation and often seem like no thought at all has gone into them. The on- site exercise room has shabby, outdated equipment. There is no central plan for evacuating residents in case of emergency and no public address system to notify the residents. Brookdale could set higher standards but seems to prefer doing as little as possible.
