Testimonials | The Willows at Brooking Park

Hear From Some of Our Current Residents!

Kent and Joan

"We are so pleased to tell others how enthusiastic we are about life at The Willows. We came from a very large home, and had to downsize a lot (i.e., from 6,000 sf to 2,000 sf). We had someone that The Willows suggested help us plan furniture arrangement for our new apartment; and we were really, really happy with the results. While we didn’t have to do a lot outside where we used to live, Joan felt compelled to plant lots of flowers outside, and perform other housekeeping matters. Now, we have so many options! We can go to a fine dining room downstairs with or without guests or with other residents, or entertain over lunch or dinner in our apartment. Joan can do a little gardening on our deck; and we can call maintenance if we have trouble changing light bulbs, or fixing anything. Kent can continue to drive to work every day leaving the garage without having to worry about snow or ice on his car. The location is so conveniently close to the highway to get downtown to his office. And we are now free to pursue our interests (like biking and attending concerts) without all the restrictions of being a homeowner. We like the decor of the whole building. We like having choices of activities, a fitness center, swimming pool, and movie theater; and we love the entertainment that The Willows provides. Bottom line, we really love being here and we’re into our 4th year! We would be happy to talk to anyone interested in moving to The Willows."

"I was motivated to move to The Willows because I wanted relief from the trials and tribulations of maintaining the home we had lived in for over 30 years. We found freedom from maintenance worries in a beautiful apartment and a friendly community in which we have the option to participate in a variety of activities. I have lived here now for 16 years and still love walking the beautiful grounds every day."

"I am so blessed to be at The Willows. I have met many new friends and enjoy being with people that I have known for years. The staff is excellent and the meals are delicious. I am a Happy Camper."

Katie K.


"Right at the moment I’m living the good life. Plenty of gourmet food that I don’t have to cook, things to do (residents’ choirs, interest groups, and professional musicians), privacy when I prefer it, parties, bus trips. . . And good conversations."

Helen H.


"Worry-free, safe home? That’s what The Willows provides for me in my villa. At this senior stage of my journey I want to be free to focus on my life purpose, not on a to-do list. Local meetings? Travel abroad? No concern about taking care of things around the house. Most of it is done routinely by The Willows. And… specific issue solutions are just a phone-call away."

"I have found the Willows to be a wonderful place to retire. The staff is efficient and caring. The food is wonderful. The people are friendly and easy to be with. The activities allow you to be as busy as you care to be. All of this makes for a total wonderful life experience."

Frank and Mariann

"We have lived at The Willows for almost 10 years, and we continue to be grateful for the wonderful residents, as well as those who provide excellent services. The location five minutes from St. Luke's Hospital and Interstate I/64 is a plus for us, as well as the superb food and the ability to entertain family and friends who visit. We cannot rave enough about all The Willows (with its connection To Brooking Park) has to offer."

We are impressed with the friendliness, the concern of the staff, the competence and promptness of maintenance and housekeeping, the consistent excellence of the food and the well-kept grounds.

"We have found The Willows to be a wonderful community with an abundance of activities, friendly people and outstanding staff. The food is great and the menus offer a variety of choices in both casual and fine dining settings. The guest suite has been a big plus when family comes to visit.
