Of the families they have helped over the years, Katie Navey, Brookdale Sales Manager recalls this story:
My wife and I moved to Charlotte in November, 2012. By June 2013 she needed institutional care. She did not remember where anything was in the house, she would wake up and need to go to the bathroom but would walk right by it, and then she began to physically abuse me
When my daughter and I first visited Brookdale South Park, we were immediately impressed that the emphasis was in taking care of the residents. When we were interviewing the marketing director, a resident walked into her office and sat down to listen, she just continued to talk with us. After a few minutes, the resident just got up and left. The director then pointed out that all the residents could visit any part of the facility, they were not restricted to their own wing. This really impressed both of us.
The caregivers treat her as they would their own. With courtesy and respect. We try and take one day at a time and treasure the good days. These are when Pat will smile and laugh. It shows me that while she lives in her own world, it is an ok place.
