My mother has been there since fall of 2016. The staff has been very caring and friendly towards my mother and family. Mom was highly resistant to entering a facility. She was not able to take care of herself, and did not want to live with family. The BG staff helped make the transition as smooth as possible. Mom likes it there now. The place is clean, there a lot of activities, the food is good. She feel safe there.

This Place is the worse to work. My Girlfriend was only there for 4 days before she ended up quitting. i told her she don't even have to work she literally owns multiply houses In NC that she rents out (Guildford county to be exact) and she's in school for nursing. She's been doing CNA work for over 5 years with no problem and was excited when she got this job. She really cares for the elderly and plans on doing geriatric nursing. She had no problems with the residents but the employees are illiterate, low intelligence and probably only have a high school degree or diploma. It seems like they hire anybody to work over there and somehow my girlfriend said They are always short staff with barely anyone available to work shifts. I'm sure all sunrise aren't like this so this review is only for this location my girlfriend was at. If you love yourself and love having peace of mind do not apply to work here unless your mamma is working with you so y'all can form pacts like this albino girl called Bianca. My girlfriend also said she literally saw her throw a resident down because she was afraid of her black cat coming towards her. Half the people working here don't care for these residents that's why it'll be hard for this Sunrise location to keep good employees around because only people still working there are people with no other choice and not educated. We will also be checking to make sure they don't put anything on her record because like I said she's been doing CNA work for over 5 years with no problems. Only bad experience she's had was with this place which is sad cause she was super excited to be working with different residents, and relating it to her nursing career. too bad it ended short due to the lack of interest and priority that the employees don't have for the residents.

My mom moved into Brighton Gardens two months ago (Sept 2016) after a fall, some other medical issues and a month rehabbing due to a pacemaker surgery. She really didn't want to leave her home but the level of care she requires is too high. We are a family with 5 siblings and we looked, and looked, and looked for the right place for our mother. We actually put a deposit down on a place not far from BG but something just didn't "feel right" about the place. Physically it was lovely and they said all the right things. I couldn't put my finger on it until I visited BG. You walk in there and the place is alive, people are smiling, the staff is friendly. The other place was missing a sense of joy. I highly recommend BG. It's a tough decision and a stressful time. They really do care and it shows!

Our family's journey with Brighton Gardens of Dunwoody began in August 2010 when we moved my mother there (my father-in-law moved in 2011, my mother-in-law moved in 2015) and continues into 2016. We had looked at many assisted living facilities in and around our area and just felt the most comfortable with Brighton Gardens. Each of our parents came with very different medical conditions and each has received an amazing level of care and compassion for their particular needs. My mother had lived with us for 22 years. In late 2006 she was diagnosed with Alzheimer's and by July 2010 she was going outdoors in the middle of the night. She was no longer safe in our home. Mother was able to enjoy the activities and socialization in the assisted living side until her dementia had progressed to the point she needed to be in a secure setting and they were able to provide that in their memory care community. Brighton Gardens was wonderful in making the transition as easy with the least stress and anxiety as possible for her. When the time came for Mother to need hospice care, she had 18 months of at home hospice care through Crossroads Hospice. My father-in-law came to BG directly from a fairly long stay in the hospital. He had been unable to walk and in a wheel chair for several years. He was alert and enjoyed bingo, meal times, and the afternoon get togethers. My mother-in-law came to BG after six months of home health, physical, occupational and speech therapy. Every therapist told us it was no longer safe for her to live unassisted. She was alert but did not like to join in activities or go to meals in the dining room. The staff met her where she was and tirelessly worked with her to increase her activities in the community. There has been a remarkably low turnover in the care provider team and the medical team. They are both very proactive in communicating, explaining and educating the family members on the condition of the resident. The level of care, compassion and concern for the residents can not be surpassed. After six years and counting, I can not say enough encouraging and positive things about Brighton Gardens of Dunwoody.
