I had to move my mom out because of an infestation of bedbugs( they told her to shushhhhh) when she talked about it. Mom saw them in the lobby, too. Now I’m trying to get them to return the two months of overcharge that occurred after she left. I am getting no response from them.

My elderly aunt lived here for 5 years prior to her death. I highly recommend Brookdale Des Plaines. The staff from sales to engineering to customer service was always very responsive to my aunts challenging needs. There are a myriad of activities to keep the residents active and engaged. it was always a pleasure to visit there.

My mom lived here for 2 years until just recently. We could not have selected a better place for her! The staff is so warm, friendly and helpful. Karen Mueller the Director of Resident Services is incredible at her position. We had our share of issues with my mom and Karen was always there to help. The Assisted Living floor and Michelle were wonderful. I wish I could name everyone there and say thank you! Highly recommended

I looked at many retirement communities when my parents house became too much for them to handle and I am so glad we decided on Brookdale Des Plaines. They have lived here for 3 years now, and we could not be happier. Their apartment is beautiful and airy. The activities and exercise classes are challenging, engaging and fun. But most of all, we cannot rave enough about the wonderful staff. They are always so friendly, attentive, and caring. They treat everyone with respect, compassion, and levity. You can tell when people love what they do, and it shows here. I would recommend Brookdale Des Plaines to anyone who is looking for a warm and inviting place for their loved ones.

My daughter and I visited several senior living residences. I knew Brookdale was the place f or me on our first visit. Brookdale was so ALIVE!! ALIVE with residents and staff. Everyone was smiling and talking and friendly and engaged in various activities. This has continued to this day. I am very happy and satisfied living at Brookdale.

I like to take the opportunity to recognize Brookdale Des Plaines for always going the extra mile to provide quality care and services for its residents. Since my 85-year-old father joined your community in 2017, your staff has continued to impress me with their commitment and professionalism. Prior to his stroke in 2017, my father worked full-time, golfed regularly and traveled frequently. About six months after moving, I took my Dad to dinner and on the drive home he got rather emotional and told me how happy he was with his life at Brookdale Des Plaines. He said that after his stroke he was not sure if he could ever find happiness and meaning in his life again. Thanks to Brookdale and your amazing staff, my Dad is happy and thriving with his new life and I could not be happier! Back in 2017, when I was trying to find an assisted living community for my Dad, I really did not know what to expect. I went to 12 different facilities throughout the area. When I visited and saw Brookdale Des Plaines it really seemed like a great fit. But over time when I got to know how caring and professional your staff was, it really took my opinion to a whole new level. Brookdale Des Plaines is an amazing place with an amazing staff!

My mother was one of the most stubborn people I knew. When she was informed by her doctor in 2015 that she would need to be in assisted living she adamantly refused because she was very much attached to her home, so much so that I had to get legal guardianship. My mother also did not like to admit to me that she was wrong about something. However within 2 weeks she was bragging about all the wonderful people of the Brookdale. The nursing staff are totally dedicated Professionals committed to the care of the residents. The attendants are expert in compassion and caring. Even the laundry, housekeeping, and dining staff have people that go beyond the call of duty. The management staff is always available. Brookdale has my highest recommendation. Brookdale has my contact information if you would like to speak to me.

The Brookdale staff has done an amazing job at keeping my 94 yr old mother-in-law safe and healthy during the pandemic. She has enjoyed the many puzzles, games and most recently the lectures-programs on Zoom.

When my sister-in -law moved in, the staff was great in helping her to get settled. Although they have followed strict standards to prevent spread of COVID, they care for both her physical needs and also emotional needs. The staff has responded to any concerns we as relatives have raised. They show they care for their residents as important individuals.

I wanted to thank the staff at Brookdale for keeping my 95 year old father safe and healthy in this difficult time. Before the pandemic my dad enjoyed his poker nights, bingo and an occasional movie and his beloved game of horseshoes ( even if it was a modified version). The staff has always been there when I needed information regarding my dad. I think one of the things that impressed me the most was how each staff member knew the name of every resident. I would without hesitation recommend Brookdale for senior care to family or friends.

Cannot say enough about the quality of care at Brookdale (Des Plaines). my mother in-law is there, and she enjoys it. The staff is helpful, and always responds to her needs. the social aspect has also been a blessing, alot of folks in her age group, and she was able to make new relationships that have lifted her spirits.

My family member has been at Brookdale Des Plaines for three years, and I have been very pleased with the services provided for her. The staff is professional, friendly, and responsive to my loved ones changing needs. It is also an added plus that the vast majority of the staff (including directors and managers) have been here for quite some time, allowing them to get to know the residents and is evidence that they are dedicated to this facility.

I cant speak highly enough about this Brookdale. Its a really long story about how mother came to need the move to Brookdale, but it has been amazing. The entire staff really cares. I am so pleased every time I visit and as my mother and I walk through the property, everyone knows her name, and most even know mine. The atmosphere in the building is so alive and robust. My mom is in the right place, the best place.

I live in Brookdale with my wide and enjoy our lifestyle here. The people who are in charge of us are the most helpful and courteous they can be. They help you to meet new people and have many programs and activities to give you many hours of enjoyment each day. This is because of all the built in amenities such as beautiful pool, exercise room, library, game room and meeting rooms. We give it a ten!

I have lived at BROOKDALE a year and half and I feel so at home. The staff are helpful and the residents are very pleasant. I lived in Las Vegas for 23 years and moved back to the Chicago area to be closer to family when my husband passed away. BROOKDALE has made me feel at home. When I visit Las Vegas, I cant wait to get back to BROOKDALE.

This is a very nice community, and my tour of it went very well. everyone was smiling and very cheerful. The staff was friendly and kind in fact the the people I worked with to get my future Mother and Father in-law there were fantastic so I thank those folks getting them in there. In my opinion this is a place for active adults who have a lot of mobility and not a lot of health issues. The apartments are way overpriced but there are lot of amenities for people who want to have lots to do and people to do them with. This isnt a place for aging parents who would be in need of support, nursing or rehab in any way. ############## Rent 2 Bedroom Apt = 4K includes cable and phone Special needs = 3 - 4K all depends Total = 7 - 8K a month --ouch!! ############## Be ready to shell out some serious bucks coming here. Another thing no one talks about the food at most is okay in fact If I am spending 4K a month to live somewhere these meals should be at least 4 star not 1-2 star.

Just several weeks into my employment at Brookdale Des Plaines, I decided that living at a retirement community is definitely something I will do in the future. Too many people are under the wrong impression that they are nursing homes. They could not be more wrong! Although I am not the minimum age yet to move into a retirement community, I know that I will, sooner rather than later, so I am able to enjoy all the amenities a Brookdale community has to offer. Brookdale opened my eyes to the way I want to spend my retirement days ahead. Until then, being an employee is pretty nice, too!
