    I am a current employee as well as a family member of parents who over the past 4 years have received care at Brookestone Meadows. From the rehabilitation services to end of life cares; all care is provided with Dignity, Compassion and Professionalism. Yes, the facilities are beautiful and very welcoming, but it is the heart of the team members that reflects their mission. Brookestone Meadows is a very special place.

    I come to this facility on occasion to visit a friend on the west side. It's an absolutely beautiful facility & the staff put on a wonderful front but you can tell they are dissatisfied with the administration. I overhear comments about how unhappy they are with how things are run. Been going on for long time, unhappy employees make a poor work environment & begin to show in performance.

    I come to Brookestone at least once a month to visit a friend on long-term care & love to walk around the building & see the different gardens. I also notice the difference in the quantity of staff between the east & west sides of the building. Very friendly helpful staff on east side of building.

    Speaking as a family member and also a member of the medical community, our experience with Brookestone Meadows and it's staff was exceptional. Our Father was treated with Dignity, Respect and Compassionate Care. The nursing staff was helpful to our family during a difficult time and very competent in their professional duties. The patient rooms as well as the facility are kept clean and clutter free. Very inviting to all who enter. The therapists who treated our Father were wonderful and so helpful in our transition to home. People we met listened and cared at Brookestone Meadows. We would recommend this facility and it's staff to anyone needing skilled care.

    recently a "friend" was returned to the hospital after falling & breaking a hip during the nite because the nite nurse was not watching that person as asked by the evening nurse. I have recently found out that the evening nurse who was not responsible for the fall was fired from her job. not sure I would call this responsible nursing, would think twice about admitting a relative here

    When my grandparent past away at BSM, during last few days there the staff paid very little attention to us or gave any care at all unless we asked for it. everyone just walked by the room like we were invisible. I find it hard to believe that they can have such a great reputation when giving such end of life care.
