    Review submitted by Local Professional on 07/16/2015

    Brookdale Spicewood Springs has such a cozy and comfortable gazebo; I’d sit out there all day if I had the chance! The facility grounds are very nice with superb landscaping. As I mentioned previously, there’s a very nice gazebo on property with cute benches next to it. The trees in this area provide shade. If given the chance, I’d certainly sit in this area all day as it feels so quiet and peaceful. One of the things I like at this facility is its outdoor spaces. Brookdale Spicewood Springs has no shortage of outdoor seating areas and paved walking paths. Brookdale Spicewood Springs also has a very prime location. This facility is actually located behind a supermarket, so walking to the store is very easy at this facility. There are also plenty of pizza places and other eateries in the general area as well as a few stores and services. Considering its nearly built against a supermarket, I’d have to say that this facility gets an A+ in terms of location. Being able to walk to the grocery store is a very big plus to any prospective resident I’m sure. Besides its location, Brookdale Spicewood Springs also does very well in the food department. The dining hall is very nice and cozy and there I had a grilled cheese made with two different cheeses. I thought it was delicious, well made and a unique addition to classic grilled cheeses. The menu has good variety and that’s what I like about this facility. The meals always seem well prepared. The activities here are good as well. There seems to be plenty of activities being hosted constantly. There’s good variety in the activities and that’s what makes them so great. Brookdale Spicewood Springs is a pretty clean facility as well. I didn’t see any trash or anything disorderly. The facility had very rustic and cozy décor, but could use a bit of updating in my opinion. I think Brookdale Spicewood Springs is a great facility with much to love. Its location is as good as it gets considering you can walk to the supermarket behind it.

    Certainly one of the best greetings because there was a joyful community activity taking place. The staff was kind and professional and showed a willingness to work with just about any situation and memory care units are available. A base fee structure with levels of care and a willingness to meet your needs and high employee retention. Their activities reach out to the larger community and put a smile on everyones face.
