Thank you for all that Brookhaven Manor did for
my mother and me.
My mother lived at Brookhaven Manor for 4 years and we both were
very happy with the apartments, the service, and the staff.
Having a balcony significantly added to the light and the sense of
space in the apartment. I feel sorry for the seniors who live
where everything is closed in. Being right in Ann Arbor made
it much easier to visit my mother often, and to be there within
minutes if there was an emergency.
Brookhaven was just the right size for us as well. It is
large enough that you can meet many different people, but small
enough that you recognize most of the residents. You come to
know the people in the office, the maintenance staff, the beauty
salon, and the kitchen staff very well. The employees at
Brookhaven really cared about my mother and went out of their way
to help her on many occasions.
There is an atmosphere of friendliness that is very pleasant.
You rarely pass a resident or a staff person without exchanging a
smile. The dining room is buzzing with conversation.
I visited 9 retirement communities/facilities before I chose
Brookhaven. Some of the are grim and austere, and Brookhaven
is the opposite of that. The only reason that my mother later
moved to an assisted living situation is because she came to need
It is not easy to choose a retirement apartment. In my
opinion, Brookhaven Manor is one of the best.
