    Brookdale has been like winning the lotterry! They treat my mom with the utmost respect and welcome our family into their community every week. She get's to see her grandkids frequently and the boys are welcomed by a very loving community. We feel very blessed to have found Brookdale Spicewood Springs!

    While I cannot say anything bad about the staff's integrity and character, there has been a marked decline in quality management under the Brookdale umbrella. Good staff, just not enough of them. Call light response times border on complete abandonment with wait times as much as 50 minutes and some residents claiming no response at all. With possible head injuries this is concerning. Often EMS can gain access to a resident's room quicker than Brookdale Staff, yet private medical alert systems are prohibited within the facility. After a 13 year residency, it is not in the best interest of our loved one to move. Many calls to staff regarding concerns have been met with placating instead of resolve. Detailed documentation regarding these calls, including staff responses, is available. People considering Brookdale Spicewood Springs should press staff for a written commitment regarding call light response times. Further, families considering any Brookdale facility should also press for details regarding frequency and amounts of rent increases. Our monthly invoice amount for 1-01-15 care was $4,031; for 5-17-16 was $5,169; and currently is $5,458. Brookdale runs their facilities like a typical corporate environment--low overhead, more profit. This is having a noticeable unfavorable impact on resident care. Unfortunately we've moved into an era where vigilance is necessary in eldercare facilities.

    I am a proud member of the Brookdale team and have been for the past 15 years and a member of Spicewood Springs since 2009. What an amazing team leader, community staff and residents that I have the pleasure of working with. The community is always full of life with fun activities and events. With the new updates and remodeled facility, the residents have a beautiful home. I have also had a family member use the rehabilitation facility as well. Brookdale Spicewood Springs is not only a wonderful home to so many residents, it also has the best rehabilitation program. What an honor, blessing and pleasure it is to be a part of the team!

    We are having a wonderful experience at this facility! Our mother could not be happier! The food is great, the staff is awesome and attentive, it's clean and has a great 'home' feel. The continuous activities are so creative and entertaining and /or educational. Just cannot say enough about the Brookdale Spicewood Springs community!!

    I have been volunteering at Brookdale for several years now and I have always found the residents to be very happy and always in a good mood to see me. The staff has always been friendly and professional and I can see the special connections they make with their residents. I often joke with Shelly Herrera, the Resident Program Director, that I would like to select my room in advance since this is where I would like to live when the time comes. I would definitely recommend this facility to anyone who is seeking a wholesome, clean, safe and fun environment for their loved ones.

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
