About Our Community
We have promised ourselves that we shall always treat our residents as we would our own loved ones. Nothing less than our best will do.
This is the promise that the staff at Elm Grove Estates – and throughout Brookdale Senior Living communities has shared since 1997 – when our community first opened its doors. It’s a simple promise to become extended family to the seniors entrusted in our care and to our retirees who have chosen our community for its active lifestyle.
