One of the most difficult decisions is deciding where to place a loved one when they no longer can live independently. Our Mother was independent enough to get around without help still cared for herself, but she needed help with her medications, her meals and we wanted her someplace where she wasn’t alone for most of the day. We are so fortunate to have found the Brookhouse Home for Women.
Immediately it was apparent to us that the staff who work at the Brookhouse, are caring, friendly, and attentive and they all seem very happy at their jobs. Seeing how the staff responds and treat residents was one of the major reasons we chose the Brookhouse.
The location, the gardens and grounds, the beautiful rooms filled with period antiques and the fact that you can bring your own furniture into your private bedroom just made it all that more appealing to us and we were struck by how clean and pleasant the home is. We immediately knew this would be the best place for our mother and we have not been disappointed. What we thought might be a difficult transition for her has instead been one of the best moves for her. She has found new friends, plenty of company, daily activities, field trips and she loves the activity on Derby Street. Knowing that she is being cared for but still independent has been reassuring for us and we are so happy this home exists for elder women and for the wonderful staff who care for these women.
