A relative/friend of mine has been a resident at Brookdale Northville for quite some time now. We visit him quite regularly. The care he gets here is amazing. The staff is so friendly and attentive. On holidays they have wonderful dinners for them and their families/friends. The food is delicious and the entertainment is wonderful. My friend was so lonely at home and seemed to be going downhill. The change in him is heartwarming. He's happy, they have made him feel purposeful and important. They have made him feel like it's his home. For me to say that I would love to live here says it all. Thank you Brookdale for taking such good care of our loved one.

My mother lived there for over a decade. It initially was excellent (Alterra owned it when she moved in) but Brookdale (BKD) bought it shortly after and it was a decade of many ups and downs as there was high turnover, particularly in the key positions of Exec Director and Nurse. But the big issue happened some time after she left. At the end she had a stroke and ended up in a rehab facility. The rehab doctor called and absolutely grilled me on why she was on psychotropic drugs and at such an alarmingly high level? (The Dr. immediately started to wean her off them.) I had no idea what the doctor was talking about - I had to Google "psychotropic drugs"; and none of the typical symptoms associated w/their use had ever been mentioned to me. Long story short, psychotropic drugs, as I learned, are very controversial in senior living circles and sometimes used (and abused) to "chemically restrain" residents. BKD denies this was the case here. I'm not medically trained so my opinion is just that of a layperson; but I will always have doubts. One thing I can say for certain is that "informed consent" regarding these meds was never provided. ("Informed consent" is the legal standard they have to live up to.) BKD's Senior VP of Clinical Services at Corporate as much as acknowledged that, speculating in an email that the nurse probably said something like, "they increased your mother's medication for behaviors, which would not be uncommon since drug names and classifications can be confusing." (Yes, drug names and classifications can be confusing to a layperson - but that is why the nurse and doctor are tasked with taking the time to translate this confusion into words a layperson can understand.) That is in fact how most nursing conversations at BKD went - and that is hardly what this layperson would call informed consent. So....do your due diligence. As I look back on this difficult time I really wonder whose side the staff there was really on.
