04/11/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: We are happy with Broadmead Retirement Community, mom is really acclimating well. I know what's out there, I've seen a lot of retirement communities in the area, and this is head and shoulders above the rest. They are very compassionate, very caring. They've got some nice talent coming in, and things to do. The food is a five, the dining room is really nice and she really enjoys going there. The staff and residents have been so nice, they are attentive to the residents and the communication is good between the staff and residents. The community itself is just beautiful and has great grounds that mom likes to take walks on.

    01/22/2014 An Interested Visitor Writes: As a senior placement consultant I have visited many communities in the Baltimore area and have to say that Broadmead is one of the best. What is not to like? This is a very lovely community with a caring staff. Residents are always happy and there are such a variety of events. The food is very good, and the community is wonderful.

She has a ton of activities to choose from that let her interact with others, they have a beauty salon and trips out to various places. I love Broadmead. My mother is happy and I feel she is being well taken care of.

    12/23/2013 An Interested Visitor Writes: We visited Broadmead Retirement Community quite a few times before we made our decision to move there this Spring. They offer everything, easy walking out with friends and biking. The surrounding scenery is beautiful. If you had an active life before you came to Broadmead, you will definitely continue it. You have to get out and do things. I saw that everyone seems to get involved in something. You can see a smile on everyone's face. It looks like they are well taken care of. It was just a lovely visit each time we've been there.

    12/03/2013 An Interested Visitor Writes: My parents moved in several months ago and have been pleased. Broadmead Retirement Community offers many activities for the residents to participate in. The community itself is clean and a housekeeping staff cleans their apartment. The management team is on site and seems to work around the clock to ensure the residents are well taken care of. I would highly recommend this retirement community.

    11/26/2013 An Interested Visitor Writes: I am very impressed with Broadmead Retirement Community. The staff is friendly,helpful and really caring. The food is wonderful, the activities are well planned. My mother was sure she would hate her new home. She has come to really like it. It is not easy for anyone to give up their homes, but Broadmead becomes home and family.

    11/19/2013 An Interested Visitor Writes: I have been a resident of Broadmead Retirement Community for the past two years and am glad that I made the move. Being in my early seventies when I moved in, the home that I had lived in for almost forty years became too large for me to handle. It was a chore to keep the house functioning and my wife and I made the decision to downsize. Broadmead offers us the ability to live independently while still providing a safety net that we need. It is great not to have to worry about things breaking in the apartment, having to cut the grass or best of all not to have to shovel the snow. All of the things that I was struggling to keep up with in my home are now easy to get done. I also have use of all of the facilities that I used to have to have a gym membership for. I am thoroughly enjoying the decision that I made with my wife to move to this safe and scenic location.

    11/06/2013 An Interested Visitor Writes: The staff of Broadmead Retirement Community are absolutely wonderful. I obtained a position in California, forcing me to relocate with my sick mother. My mother requires comprehensive medical care and did not want to leave the state of Maryland, so I was left in a bind. Upon visiting Broadmead Retirement Community, I found myself relieved, they offered on site nurses, community activities and spacious living conditions. My mother was above and beyond pleased with the facility. I have referred many patients to the facility since the passing of my mother, yet I still keep in touch with the wonderful staff whom accompanied her in her last days.

    09/25/2013 An Interested Visitor Writes: My father-in-law became a resident of Broadmead in 2009. He entered as a resident in the independent living retirement section and was eventually moved into the nursing area. The staff at Broadmead were always helpful and respectful of my father-in-law's wishes, and helped us with the many questions and details that come when you are the child of an aging parent. The facilities were always clean. Numerous relaxation areas were available for my father-in-law including a private library, lounges, and a recreation room with games and a large-screen television. Religious services were provided, and my father-in-law was able to take part in events like poetry readings. When my father-in-law was failing they were always attentive to his medical needs, and alerted us immediately if he needed our attention. The quality of service provided was always excellent and we were more than satisfied.

    07/09/2013 An Current/Past Resident Writes: Love it here!
    I feel like I am on vacation all year long. I enjoy the sense of community and the people I have met since I have moved to Broadmead. I knew Broadmead's reputation and didn't even consider other communities when it came to looking for a retirement community.

    06/27/2013 An Current/Past Resident Writes: My husband and I found Braodmead Retirement Community to be a wonderful, wonderful place to live. There are so many activities to enjoy daily. My husband plays bridge and I play a lot of mahjong. We have tons of things we can do together. We have our own restaurants, theatre, etc. It is not as big as some communities, but we do have a good mix of residents.
    The apartment homes are nice and are in several price ranges. The very best thing is the folks you meet. There is a saying here that it doesn't matter who you were or what you did before, here everyone is in the same boat. It's true. We all love life and want to enjoy our remaining years in an active, mentally stimulating atmosphere, with fun loving people.
    Broadmead is absolutely beautiful and extremely well cared for.
    My best suggestion would be to check out their website and take a look. I am so happy we are here. It was the very best decision we could have made.

    06/02/2013 An OurParents User Writes: We are very happy with life at Broadmead! Not only is the location ideal, but our apartment is one of the largest ones that any retirement community in the area could offer for the price. The staff is pleasant, concerned and compassionate and fellow residents are friendly and warm. Broadmead provides transportation with reliable drivers, all the upkeep we no longer wish to do as well as many opportunities to lead an active lifestyle. We have been very happy here for the past 3 years.

    04/24/2013 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: Broadmead is a wonderful and caring retirement living. My mother moved to Broadmead 3 years ago. She has found living there a most happy experience. The knowledgable and caring staff is the main reason, along with a clean and well-cared for facility, lovely grounds, very good food and the many activities offered the residents. The staff is always interested, responsive, and very caring and careful to meet the needs of the residents and their families. We highly recommend Broadmead.

    01/07/2013 An Current/Past Resident Writes: Broadmead is FANTASTIC!! How do I know? Because I live there. As for the food, great (not just "good") food is my "thing". The food is GREAT! They admission staff is very professional and extremely helpful during our transition. If you want to know what Broadmead is like, ask those who live there. I am glad we gave our decision a lot of thought because my sister used to live at Edenwald and they give their residents those little call buttons to wear around their necks - then if they ever push the button, no one comes! They are perpetually understaffed and if you have any family members living there you should know they also have thieves on staff. I was visiting my sister who was in their nursing wing. The nurse's aide was in the room alone for just a moment because the other aide went to get some ointment for my sister's diaper rash (they clearly weren't changing her often enough, either). She lifted my entire credit card wallet out of my purse, which was on the chair for just a minute while I went to the restroom. I know it was her because she tried to use my stolen cc the next morning at the gas station a few blocks from Edenwald. The management did absolutely nothing about it, either. If she managed that while I was visiting for just an hour, I wonder what she does to the poor unsuspecting residents who live there? Don't put your family members in Edenwald. There are many other better options with competent, caring staff.

    Response: It is no wonder Edenwald continuously has this site and a few others remove any negative reviews. Makes me wonder what they have to hide.

    01/11/2011 An Family Member of Current/Past Resident Writes: My father suffers from cancer and we are told that he may have only a few months (at best) remaining. He is currently at home and my mother is his primary caregiver.

    We learned of 'respite' care from our hospice and began to look for the best place for Dad to visit and potentially stay long term, when the time comes.

    Since my parents live in the Sparks area, Broadmead was a natural choice. Unfortunately, I found Broadmead to be unresponsive to requests: I called directly and was transfered to a nurse, who advised that Broadmead does not 'allow' respite care but that she would have her supervisor return my call. After a few days, I reached out via the Our Parent website to see if I could obtain a response via that avenue. Meanwhile, I called again and left a message in HR, which was where I was transfered this time. Several days later, someone did return my call and advised me that Broadmead didn't know what to do with my request, so no one addressed it. Apparently, our request did not fall into a specific catagory (such as retirement, etc.). While very nice, the person that I spoke to referred me to my hospice provider to research 'other facilities'. I found that I needed to be very adament about wanting to place my father at Broadmead and was then advised that no beds were available. I asked that we be notified when one was and was told to call back in a few weeks time to check on availability.

    I understand that my need is not urgent at this moment, but there will come a time when it is and I now question if Broadmead has the necessary responsiveness to handle final stages patients. And their families.
