    I would like to let everyone know what a terrific Place Brookdale of Northridge. I have experience there Assisted Living with my mom for several years. They were terrific, the staff still stays in touch with my family even though she passed a couple years ago. I now have my dad over at skilled nursing and I cannot tell you what a great job they've done with him. Their physical therapy is one of the best and their caregiving is top-notch

    ★★★★★ in the last week

    Recently I was put in a position new to me. My mom had fallen and broken her arm, and had spent 3 very sedentary weeks hospitalized. She was very weak and in need of skilled nursing. To say the least, mom was none too happy about the idea of being away from home, and was very skeptical we'd find a place acceptable to her and her extremely particular standards for care and cleanliness. Brookdale Northridge, and especially the skilled nursing staff there, came through for us just when I was beginning to think I'd not find a solution in time. I'll tell you honestly...it is not that this place is near perfect in all ways. I doubt any senior care facility is. But what they are blessed with is a truly fantastic staff! Over a period of nine weeks I can't even count how many times these gifted people went out of their way (far beyond what I expected) to help my mom recover. Amor, the social services director, spent SO much time with my mom that I sort of ask myself how she got any work done those 9 weeks because we took kept her so busy. But I sure appreciate it. Physical therapy staff were great. So often they'd have to really try hard to get mom going but they never gave up. They are good at their work but beyond that they are wonderful, caring people. The floor nurses and support staff were equally amazing. My mom was a challenge for them, to say the least, but they always seemed to be able to kick their care up another level when needed. I guess what I'm trying to say is this: you can find professional care staff at lots of senior living places but It'd be very tough to find better people. Combine that with the fact that the facilities are worlds cleaner and nicer than any of the other 4 or 5 other care places we looked at and you begin to see how Brookdale not only won me over, but even more significantly, made my mom's long stay both possible and productive. Hope I don't need to, but I'd not hesitate to bring a family member here again. Thanks.

    I really like what this senior community has to offer. First off as you walk in you really feel an at home warm environment, the layout and design of the place is beautiful. Second, the staff is amazing. From the people like (Julia, Nimisha, Gabriel, and Kristis) coordinating your love ones arrival and stay with Brookdale, the nurses who are the ones making sure they are well taken care off, the physical therapy rehab center they have set up here is will ensure speedy recovery, down to the house keeping. Everyone is very warm welcoming and very professional. I work for Star World Home Health agency which some of our patients go here or come from here. The staff and environment is great here. The communication with everyone is very important for the patients well being and Brookdale does an amazing job with this. From the start of care to the end of the patient's care till they go home. We really like working with Brookdale, the transition is really smooth and straight forward ensuring the main goal and purpose is all about patient care. Thank you for always being an outstanding and exceptional senior living community.

    My mom's broken hip required skilled nursing care and we both have been so pleased with the staff and care at Brookdale Northridge! The experience was made so much easier by the warm and caring staff. Their rehabilitation team and nursing team are excellent! The food was tasty with lots of options and the grounds are lovely and "home-like". Mom was always comfortable throughout her stay which included managing her diabetes. She is preparing for her return home and Brookdale is taking us through each step of transition.We are so grateful for their wonderful support.

    I arrived at Brookdale - Northridge four days out of knee replacement surgery and spent four weeks there...Nurses, therapists and staff were very efficient throughout and caring, professional and of good cheer... All very necessary for a speedy recovery... I don't wish the need for rehab for anyone.... but if you must... this is the place..

Types of Problems at Nursing Homes

Some issues within a nursing home are much more severe than others. Medicare evaluates each problem based on 2 scales: the number of residents affected by a problem and the severity of the potential or actual harm to residents based on the problem. We have color coded the matrix below to make it easier to pick out the more severe problems. In general, orange and red issues related to the treatment of a resident are considered substandard quality of care.

  Residents Affected
Severity of the Deficiency Few Some Many
Immediate jeopardy to resident health or safety J K L
Actual harm that is not immediate jeopardy G H I
No actual harm with potential for more than minimal harm that is not immediate jeopardy D E F
