BRIGHTON HOUSE ASSISTED LIVING: PROS & CONS ANALYSIS

This home won't be for everyone. You have people who want the fancy dining and amenities. This is not that. For those who value a home-like atmosphere and aren't seeking bells and whistles, this might just be the ticket.

BRIGHTON HOUSE PROS

The positives of Brighton House mostly center on its people and its price-to-value ratio. If these elements are important to you, read on.

THE OWNER

Erv Logan owns and manages Brighton House. In a rather unusual dynamic in the world of assisted living, he's hands-on, making the running of his facility his full-time job. 

He's a former manager of a massive semiconductor factory, and he brings the same level of care and attention to detail. Plus, he's just a nice, friendly guy. 

THE COMMUNITY

Owner Erv has his own mother, Maureen, occupying one of the Brighton House rooms, and from the sound of things she's a cornerstone of the social life of the home. Staff and residents alike seemed friendly and engaged.

"I don't want people here if they don't belong in a place like this," Erv says. "I only want people who are a good fit with our community and culture."

LOCATION

Brighton House is on a quiet residential street a mere block away from the well-kept and attractive Riverton City Park. Residents have plenty of options to get fresh air—without getting a lungful of traffic fumes.

The backyard is suburban-spacious and backs against a stormwater management green space, guaranteeing that development will not occur anywhere nearby in that direction.

VALUE

Erv charges a straight $2,900 rent and everything's included in that price. He doesn't charge extra for anything—unless it's truly out of the ordinary. 

For example, a session with the hairdresser does cost extra, but that's the exception.

"HOME-COOKED" MEALS

You won't find any crystal or white tablecloths, but the menu looks like it came from the kitchen of a grandma who loves to cook.

ACTIVITIES

With the involvement of Erv's mom Maureen, the social calendar is quite full. We got the sense of a dynamic, eventful community of seniors.

CAPITOL HILL SENIOR LIVING: CONS

No real cons, other than those common to all smaller facilities: fewer resources/amenities than larger facilities. Again, it depends on what's important to you.

NO INTEGRATED CARE

Brighton House offers straight assisted living; residents needing to transition into more intensive care levels will need to relocate. Again, this dynamic is common to smaller facilities.

BARE-BONES AESTHETIC

Not only is the interior decidedly not flashy, it borders on basic. If interior design isn't a priority, this won't be a problem; if it is a priority, don't bother visiting.

NOT ENOUGH ROOMS

Yes, we're putting this as a negative mark tongue-in-cheek because your chances of snagging one of Erv's rooms are hit-and-miss. As of October 2019 he's full up, but you never know when something will open up.

NO AMENITIES

Brighton House has a communal area where folks gather for games or movies, but otherwise you won't find extras.

IFSL rating: 7/10

Good for those who want "homey."

TERRIFIC OPTION IF YOU VALUE THE SOCIAL ELEMENT MORE THAN AMENITIES

Go for this if a low-key, nurturing environment matters more than the facility itself.
