"My sister has moved into Traditions at Brookside. It's a very caring community. The room was larger than any of them that we had looked at. It was all-inclusive and the room looks out over a patio, and it is next to the nurse's station, so we felt like it's exactly what she needed. She hasn't been there long enough, but so far, it is fine. The dining area is fine. We've encouraged her to tell them if she doesn't like something, and they said they would bring her something else and so forth, and they've been good about that. The staff has been very friendly and very caring. When we've had questions, they answered them and so forth. She had a wound and they had been really good about keeping that cared for and so forth. Their outdoor space is available to all those in the memory care unit. It has a nice patio, umbrella tables, and lots of flowers, which I understand in the spring that the memory care people helped to plant with their activity director. They have activities in the memory room, but I love the outdoor space and her room looks out over that, and she likes flowers, so that is another reason we thought she would be happier there." M.B.
"It's a very nice facility. Everybody is really friendly and welcomes you in. We've just seemed to fit right in with everyone. I've not tried the food, but it smells really good. The Activities Director seems to stay busy with the residents and keep them occupied. When she's not busy doing that, she's handing out snacks and newsletters with memory-oriented puzzles and things. I really like it there, and my loved on seems to like it as well. I would definitely recommend them." WB (Senioradvisor.com)
"We went to Traditions at Brookside, and my mother-in-law liked it so much that she didn't want to see any place else. We were very impressed with it. The facility itself was very nice and well taken care of. The staff seemed very knowledgeable and competent. They answered any questions we had. The services they offered were what we needed for my mother-in-law. Our overall impression was good to excellent. I saw the assisted living and memory care. The staff felt after talking to her that she really belonged in memory care. We originally went there to look at the assisted living part; but after seeing that and talking to my mother-in-law, the staff felt that she would do better in memory care. They seemed very concerned, and they knew how to talk to my mother-in-law without coming on too strong. They asked her questions directly and were really good about including her in the conversation. They were very friendly, concerned and seemed very competent. We met the head nurse and the head of the memory care unit, as well as the executive director. We did not go during mealtime, and we did not try the food. We asked them about the food. It's a menu that has the same things every day, plus a daily special. The dining room seemed very nice. The staff has been there for quite awhile. They don't have a lot of turnover, which was important to us. The facility was clean, well kept, and very pleasing to the eye. It looked brand new. It was just a very nice first impression, inside and out." Jane (Caring.com)
"We are touched by everyone at Traditions in one way or another and have the most gratitude for all you do for us. I thought moving here was just a stop as I continued to look for another house. The longer we were here, the more positive the benefits became. At first, a small thing--NO STEPS. Now that is a big thing. Being in a wheelchair, the no-steps makes daily living so much easier.
Another big thing has been the meals. Mike and I enjoy them and especially right now, when I do not have to do the prep, cooking or cleaning up. Life is good. Thank you very much for making the difference for us.
When Mike had to have surgery, our friends gave us a week of dinners as a gift. Traditions added another two weeks to that. Our sincere thanks to you all for this. Mike has gone through the recovery with a lot of pain and in need of a lot of help, which has not always been easy in a wheelchair, but we made it. Thank you very much for this assistance. Have to mention the pizza the other night, the best I have ever had.
Another big plus about living here at Traditions has been the neighbors. They care and have also stepped in to help. Put this all together and we are so grateful for living here and for all you have done to help us. Thank you Traditions from the bottom of our hearts. There is more that could be said, just know how much we appreciate every one of you and everything you do for us. Love and hugs to you all." Thea
"I am/was a resident of this facility. At one point, we lived in Traditions at Brookside in [the] little houses, in independent living, but I was able to have a pendant on my husband, so we actually knew everybody there. The staff is great. I already know them because I knew eventually I was gonna need memory care for him, and they had a program for memory care. We had a two-bedroom, we had a garage, too and we got one meal a day and it was really good. They have a chef, and we enjoyed the food. It's really nice, it's a brand-new place and very modern. The dining room was great, we had music a lot of times, people waited on us, and it was great. We totally enjoyed it.
I have nothing [bad] to say, the staff was just perfect there. [When my husband] would fall, I slept in another bedroom and half the time I wouldn't even know he was lying on the floor. The girls had the keys and they would go back there and just pick him up, and they were all very nice to him. They had a regular shuttle bus where they would take him down to the VA, and just anything you asked 'cause they tried very hard to please anybody." Joan
"I wanted to thank you for the arrangement to meet privately with Louise Maley. It was her late son David's birthday. He would have been 61 years old. Your care and understanding is greatly appreciated. Please keep up the good work, it means a lot." Rosita M. (David's wife)
"My mom moved into Traditions at Brookside recently. Patty June has been such a great support for us. Just one example is when we moved mom in we forgot her phone cable. Patty bought one and installed it herself! Who does that? Patty June, that's who. She has scheduled visits for us, made certain COVID protocols are adhered to and does a wonderful job during these hectic times. THANK YOU PATTY JUNE!!! Thanks loads!" Vickie P.
"My mom moved into Traditions at Brookside. It is very nice, they keep it immaculate, and their staff is very friendly. The maintenance guys helped us move her in, and set up the furniture. They did a whole lot more than what their job description called for. They were very helpful with that, they keep very close tabs with my mom, and they keep close contact with me. They have restaurant style eating under normal circumstances, but now [with Covid] they're serving them in their rooms; it's a lot of prepackaged food, and so my mom was not thrilled about that. The room is very spacious, lots of natural light, a nice bathroom with all the handholds, pull cords, and safety-related things. It's very tastefully done. They usually have a happy hour every day; they have a jukebox that plays oldies, and lots of different games. My mom has a dog, and they have an area where she can get off her leash and run around. They have some great rocking chairs out there, and she has made a lot of friends, especially with other dog owners out there." Anonymous (Caring.com)
"We moved my dad to Traditions a couple of weeks ago. I like the location, it's close to where I live. He has a door that leads outside and one that leads into the hallway, and once Covid is over, we can come and go through that door without having to go through the lobby. The community has been great other than the restricted visiting due to Covid. They were very helpful. He said that everyone there is very nice with him. They go out of the way to make him comfortable. They walk the paper and hand it to him and don't just leave it at the door. They deliver the newspaper every day. They are kind of spoiling him. With the staff, I have no issues with anyone. He likes his eggs prepared in a certain way, which they don't offer right now. It is expensive, but we had no idea going in how much it was, so it was just figure-shock, really. But they have a lot to offer, so it's a good value for the money." 🙂Beverly
"My mother will be moving into Traditions at Brookside. It's less than five miles from my home, and it's really new. I think it's about three years old. The staff was fantastic and very informative. The apartment was beautiful and roomy.🙂" Victoria
"Carole's daughter and son-in-law let me know the other day how grateful they were for Carole's new home in your memory care and for all you did to pull together a room for her pending them bringing Carole's furnishings from her home in Florida. I wasn't surprised with the positive feedback, but it is still very gratifying to know my recommendations exceed expectations. 🙂" Lisa K. (Assisted Living Locators)

"Helen spent the last six months of her active life at Traditions at Brookside. She had lived in her home in Pennville for 72 years and really did not want to leave. But there came a time, at the age of 96, that her family thought it was best for both her safety and health to move to an assisted living facility.
We visited several locations and did considerable research. After reviewing many options, we decided that Traditions at Brookside was the best option. Helen was leaving the community and friends that had been a major part of her life, and she was very concerned that she would be lonely and sad. But, that was not the case!!!!
When Helen became very ill and had to leave Traditions, she was very sad and said "I do not want to leave. I have made great friends here and this is my home now.
Helen's family wants to say a personal 'THANK YOU TO PATTY AND HER TEAM FOR A JOB WELL DONE!! YOU GAVE HELEN AN ENJOYABLE AND SAFE LIFE. AND AFTER A SHORT 6 WEEKS, SHE FELT AT HOME LIVING IN TRADITIONS.'" Pam and Larry R. & Family and John and Kathy C. & Family
"My mother will move into Traditions at Brookside in August. Our experience was very good, the woman I worked with was very helpful and friendly, and the facility was just a couple of years old, so it's very well-appointed. There's a large brook or stream that runs behind it, and there's not a lot around, you have to drive to get to other places. It's laid out more like a hotel, it's bigger than a house, I think they have 75 assisted living residents, and then they also have memory care. Everything is updated, she's going to be in a studio apartment, it's a nice size, and it's got a little kitchenette. The dining area is lovely with white tablecloths and white napkin service, full restaurant service, three meals a day, and doors that connect to a patio. It's lovely like a resort. They have beautiful patios and a courtyard." Deb (Caring.com)
"God is so good. My mom and dad moved into Traditions at Brookside Assisted Living today. I could not have asked for a better outcome. Mom and Dad love their new apartment. It was like Jesus feeding the 5000, only it was like Jesus taking a 354 square foot apartment and turning it into a mansion! Who would know they would move next to a long-time friend and pastor?! I am forever indebted to my family, friends and rockstar husband. Couldn't have done it without you and I love you all so much. Thank you and thank you, God for orchestrating this! Nelson and LaDonna, enjoy your new home. Love you so much!" Audi C.

I like the payment plan per month, bonus for inviting guests, proximity to all kinds of stores, restaurants and available for transportation to medical facilities, personal doctor (within 20 miles), groceries above average. Good meals, free landscaping, church service, free home telephone, window washing two times a year, so many activities that are available, appliance repair, etc." Vera M.
Overall, top notch." Joyce M.

"My wife and I feel so blessed that our daughter, who lives in Carmel, was able to find a brand new 2 bed, 2 bath spacious home with attached garage at Traditions at Brookside. All rentals come with new appliances and each resident in the eighteen homes receives 30 complimentary meals per month--ordered from a generous menu--at the community restaurant across the street. One couldn't ask for better neighbors in a peaceful country setting." Eugene S.

"We are going to be moving my parents into Traditions at Brookside. It is nice because it is brand new. When i first visited, it was under construction, but now it is finished and really nice. They have a workout area and a movie theater. You don't have to sit down at a certain time to eat; you can go and get what you want whenever you want in the dining room. That is something that my dad really likes because where he is now, you have to eat lunch from 11 to 1. They have a courtyard in the center. We worked with Kara, who was very nice, very helpful and showed us the different apartments they had." Anonymous (Caring.com)
"My parents moved to Traditions last Wednesday. They have a two-bedroom, two-bath shower home with a one-car garage. There's a porch in the back and the front, a full kitchen with stainless steel equipment and a washer and dryer. They have 30 meals a month, excellent food and the dining area is like a restaurant where you can order from a menu. They also have a full salon, chapel and a theater room." Sally (Caring.com)
