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 Brookdale South Park, formerly Emeritus at South Park – and throughout Brookdale senior living communities – has shared since 1999, when our community first opened its doors. It’s a simple promise to be compassionate and kind, understanding and respectful – a promise to become extended family to the seniors entrusted in our care and to our residents who have chosen our memory care community.
The Perfect Location
Brookdale South Park has long been associated as a thriving business district as well as home to some of Charlotte’s most affluent residential neighborhoods. Brookdale South Park is located in the heart of South Park, and is the only stand-alone community specifically designed for memory care in the area. Our location provides quick access to Charlotte’s top hospitals including CMC Pineville, CMC Mercy, CMC Main, and Presbyterian Hospital, as well an established network of physicians and rehabilitation facilities.
An ideal location for families and visitors Brookdale South Park is home to one of the largest and most upscale shopping malls in the region, with shops including Louis Vuitton and Tiffany’s to name a few. Fine dining, parks, greenways, and cultural activities, including Symphony Park, the summer home of the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra, are just some of the many reasons South Park is one of the Queen cities most desirable locations, all within minutes from Brookdale South Park.
Set on two acres of beautifully landscaped grounds with a courtyard, lovely gardens and walking trails, Emeritus at South Park is considered one of North Carolina’s premier Alzheimer’s communities. Located close to I-77, our community offers 52 senior apartments on one floor for easy access. Here our residents enjoy retirement living. Yet should you need a helping hand from our warm and caring staff, we also offer complete assisted living services, tailor-made to your needs. We’ve designed our services to focus on wellness, helping you maintain or improve your health, so you can live as independently as possible.
A Wonderful Selection
Brookdale South Park sits on two acres of landscaped grounds, including Charlotte’s largest outdoor walking space for a memory care community in the area. Our walking trails include a serene, safe setting with plenty of space to sit and admire nature, as well as ample space for vegetable, herb and flower gardening.
An outdoor gazebo and large covered patio are spaces often used for family and friends to gather. The footprint of our community was specifically designed with Dementia and Alzheimer’s care in mind. Every space in our community is carefully designed to promote a healthy, supportive environment, including our indoor walking area that encourages movement.
Our life stations and memory boards encourage reminiscing, and independence, as well as meaningful interaction with caregivers and loved ones. Our four unique neighborhoods provide quality care with individualized care plans in a soothing and comfortable setting.
Our staff is committed to providing quality care, and is specially trained on an ongoing basis to understand and respond to the specific needs related to people with Dementia and Alzheimer’s. Because your family’s experience is unique, our goal is to get to know you and your loved one, so that we can offer support and solutions for your individual situation.
