“After my wife was a resident at three other rehab centers I wasn’t very excited when the hospital informed us that they wanted her to go for another stint at rehab. However, since my arrival at The Chateau, our whole attitude has changed. The staff are all nice and treat us well. My wife actually enjoys the food and has even put on a few pounds.

“Having held a 30 year career in the field of nursing, rehab and assisted living, I found myself in March of 2017 on the other side of the admissions desk. I can’t thank you and your staff enough for helping my mother’s transition and transfer process seamless and incredibly comforting. My sisters and I were facing the daunting task of moving our 102 year old mother back to Brooklyn, the place where she had lived her earlier 100 years and wanted desperately to return. I found The Chateau at Brooklyn on line and proceeded to do my homework. I was so pleased to learn about the facility, its many services, amenities and sterling reputation. The staff, especially the nurses, rehab person, social workers and certified nursing assistants have been so attentive to our needs and my mother is receiving wonderful care and thriving at the young age of 102!

Living in another state, some 250 miles away, any concerns and questions I may have about Mom’s progress and her health status are always met by return phone calls and reassurance from your professional nursing staff. On behalf of our family, I would like to acknowledge what an awesome community The Chateau at Brooklyn is and I wish you continued success in the future and we thank you all again for the good works that you provide for so many.” – Lucille S.


“The Chateau at Brooklyn is a very nice place; the building is very clean and well organized. The staff are all very compassionate and always have a smile on their face. I would like to make a special mention of a few particular staff members that went above and beyond to make sure I was doing well throughout my stay. Erica is a very well spoken nurse who knows how to communicate well with her patients, she understands the difference of speaking TO someone and not AT them, always making sure to explain everything that she was doing, which I appreciated very much. My CNA Ms. Caswell was very patient and took special care of me, along with my PT Max who was so concerned about me being able to walk on my own again without having any pain in the process.” – Yolanda H.
