My aunt was a resident of Brookdale Woodward Estates (dementia/alzheimers unit) for thirteen months until she passed at the age of 101 years. It was a difficult transition for her and the family because she wanted to remain in her home. But the staff at Brookdale continuously worked with her and our family to make her feel comfortable, a part of the community and most of all "loved". It took a while for her to adjust and even then at times she would ask to go home. But on a good day, you could say she was "running the place". We would go to visit, she was never in her room, either in the beauty salon talking to the hairdresser, at the opposite end of the building talking to someone even at the concierge desk. What made this happen was the staff from the Executive Director to the entire nursing staff knowing how to assist someone with dementia/alzheimers - it is not an easy task. It definitely takes a village to operate a facility of this magnitude and this one is done extremely well. In September, my aunt turned 101 years and we gave her a birthday party. The activities coordinator planned all aspects of the party and it was amazing - to the point my aunt actually got out of her wheelchair and made a speech. During our time at the facility they had a change in Executive Director's. The young woman who took over made pertinent changes in staffing, was very accessible to our family and willing to accommodate us in whatever manner possible. Yes, Brookdale is costly but remember the old saying "you get what you pay for" and this facility is well worth it. Would I recommend it to someone - absolutely. Anyone's loved one who has to be in assisted living would benefit from the experience of living in Bowie at Brookdate Woodward Esates.
