I was responsible for making the difficult decision on where to move my aunt who was diagnosed with dementia. I decided to check out Applewood. I can tell you it has been the best decision I have made for my aunt. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. They treat you like you are part of the Applewood family each time you enter the building. I highly recommend Applewood Senior Living for the care of your loved one.

While my Mom has not always been the most cooperative resident, I have always had the peace of mind of knowing that she is cared for and watched over and when anything happens, like a fall or illness, I am immediatley notified.  The staff has always been friendly toward our family and friends who visit, providing information about my Mom – staff is aware of any issues that may have come up that day or that week.

The caregivers are wonderful.  They not only do their jobs well, they are friendly and companionable.  They take the time to create relationships with residents.

I want to let you know that I am very impressed with the Applewood Brookfield facility. Every time I visit my father there are always activities going on for the residents. Applewood does a superb job of bringing in people whether it be musicians for entertainment or trades people showing how things are made. One day I stopped in and there was a man making wooden shoes another day they were hatching moths from Catapillar’s. The staff seems to be very attentive and treats the residents extremely well. My father claims also that the food is pretty good and coming from him that is high praise. I would recommend Applewood to anyone wanting the very best care for their parents.

Thank you for taking such good care of my dad.  You and your staff did far more that administer meds, you made him happy.  You tended to his personality and social needs.  I’m so grateful to have found you.

The building is newer and very nice, and the owners Debbie and Greg are hands on, and they and the staff make this place feel like home for my Mom.  It has only been a month, but our experience so far has been great.

I visited Applewood of Brookfield.  It felt warm and like home.  The staff was very good.  Mom will be moving there.  The food was very good, and they had two clean and pleasant dining rooms.

Dear Debbie and Greg,
 
After 6 months mom and I have both adjusted to her new home.  You and your staff have worked with both of us to accomodate mom’s needs.  Everyone has been so friendly and loveing to mom and me.  I’ve had many hugs too.  It is an adjustment for the whole family.  
 
I have been able to go back to being a daughter and enjoying my visits with mom.  I can have a day off to enjoy my new retirement and know that she is in good hands.
 
We love the activity program.  Nina is the best!!  Mom never exercised and now thinks of herself as a “leader”.  Her doctor reports that her kidney function is improved.  Thanks to 3 regular meals with water, juice and coffee at each.  Her dentist reported that her teeth were cleaner.  Thanks to the supervised brushing/washing up morning and night.
 
Mom has made friends and enjoys chatting over her meals.  We love the open door/ dorm style halls that encourage drop in visits.  We used to find her sleeping at her last senior living appartment.
 
We chose Applewood because of the room size.  The “suite” is so cute.  Mom is proud to show her place off.
 
The beauty shop is great and Linda is a doll.  Looking good is still an important part of mom’s day.
 
Mom’s outlook has improved and we can leave after a visit without any distress.
 
Thanks for making Applewood a great place to live.

My mom lived at Applewood for several years. My mom talked about how she enjoyed living at Applewood. The staff at Applewood is very caring and always made her feel special. They always made sure my mom had a snack of her choice no matter what time of the day or night it was. Sometimes that late night snack came with a special “staff” friend to talk and laugh with. Our family always felt comfortable with my mother’s care and visiting at Applewood. When initially visiting Applewood with my mother, we were impressed with its cleanliness. The staff at Applewood gets their residents involved in games, Bingo, art projects, gardening, stories, concerts, puzzles, holiday crafts and other activities. Applewood Senior Living put a smile on my mother’s face. We highly recommend Applewood for your loved ones. Lori and Jim M
