About Our Community
Brookdale West Seattle, formerly Emeritus at West Seattle, offers the best of both worlds – a beautiful community setting with lots of local shopping, restaurants and entertainment – all just minutes away from Seattle and all it has to offer. Select apartments have beautiful views of downtown Seattle, Puget Sound, and the Cascade Mountains. The West Seattle senior center is approximately a mile away, Sound Transit’s Rapid Ride is close by and goes to downtown Seattle every 10-15 minutes. West Seattle also boasts one of the city’s only sandy beaches. Both Safeco Field and Century Link Field are 10 minutes by car and right on the bus line from our community. There is a local community theater and many other cultural events are a short drive away.
A Wonderful Environment
Brookdale West Seattle is a six-story building with 81 studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments in an urban setting. The community has a library, game room, movie theater, fitness center and a spectacular view from our roof top deck of downtown Seattle, Mt. Baker and the Seattle skyline.
We have a culturally diverse staff, many who have worked in this community since it opened 10 years ago. We truly represent Brookdale Family values by embracing our residents’ needs and working to ensure they all lead fulfilling, purposeful lives.
Strong, Caring Professional Relationships
Our nurse and care staff work side by side with several primary care providers in our local community. We even have a local doctor that visits the community at least once a month.
Our Community Lifestyle
A Wonderful Active Lifestyle
Brookdale West Seattle has a full activities calendar and social programs that keep our residents active. Every month, we have an activities forum so the people who live in the community can make suggestions and give feedback about what they want to do and when and where they want to do it. Our Life Enrichment Director also comes up with creative activities to make it a well-rounded program. A daily exercise regimen keeps those who participate fit and healthy. We also provide numerous outings to museums, theater and the zoo. Many residents take advantage of our rooftop deck with their families to grow beautiful flowers/vegetables, barbecue, roast marshmallows on the fire pit or just relax and enjoy the view of the Space Needle.
Partnering with the Local Neighborhood Community
Brookdale West Seattle residents participate in the Silver Sneakers program located at the YMCA across the street. They visit the West Seattle Senior center for a number of activities and events. We also partner with the West Seattle food bank and have a collection site all year long. We regularly participate in events with the West Seattle Junction Association and West Seattle Chamber out side of the community. There is a monthly family dinner and special events throughout the year.
Brookdale West Seattle has an all-day dining program that gives options for everyone’s taste and nutritional needs. Hot breakfast is served from 7am to 11am and omelets and waffles are available all day. The afternoon meal gives you the option of three daily specials, four new side orders and two special desserts. If none of those choices look appetizing, choose from our set menu, an omelet, grilled chicken, burger, or catch of the day cooked to order the way you like it. We also offer quarterly premium dining that offer fine dining experiences here in the community with out the hassle and expense of going out.
