About Our Community
Medina, Ohio Assisted Living
Brookdale Medina North, formerly Camelot Place, is a Medina, Ohio assisted living community for seniors. Within walking distance of many national department stores, or community still keeps the feel of small-town America. Wonderful family neighborhoods surround the beautiful setting in which Camelot Place is so fortunate to be located.
Brookdale Medina North is fortunate to be located in the heart of the shopping district of Medina. Within walking distance, our residents currently enjoy their independence through daily shopping walks to many national department stores and restaurants. Designated, paved walking paths to local parks help keep our residents fit and active. Our independent retirement community is just a short drive away from Cleveland, where in the past year our residents have enjoyed going to concerts such as Andre Rieu, the Cleveland Browns training camp, Cleveland Indians baseball games and even the casinos of West Virginia.
A Wonderful Selection
Brookdale Medina North is unique and offers several different sizes of senior apartments. Unlike many assisted living communities, Camelot Place has large senior apartments, from our studios at 410 square feet, (national average is 300 square feet), to our largest two-bedroom apartments which measure 845 square feet. Our one-bedroom apartments range from 490 square feet to 625 square feet. All senior apartments are generously equipped with a microwave oven, an electric two-burner stove, a refrigerator, a walk-in shower with built-in chair, individual heat and air conditioning, an outside balcony and an abundance of closet and storage space.
Our 98-unit senior apartment building has the feel of a grand hotel or a southern plantation. The open air atrium gives it a feeling of grandeur. Sky lights brings in the sun and gives it a feeling of warmth, year round. Our veranda lends itself to relaxing afternoons with a good book or a place to gather with friends. We have ongoing events on our patio, including “Dancing Under the Stars,” performances by retired members of the Cleveland Orchestra, and barbecues.
Strong, Caring Relationships
Brookdale Medina North enjoys many healthcare affiliations. Our medical director oversees policies and procedures to aid in continuous quality assurance. Selective home health agencies supplement care to many of our residents. In addition to supplemental providers who visit daily, we have outpatient physical, occupational and speech therapy on-site provided by Genesis Rehabilitation, a nationally recognized therapy provider. When appropriate, hospice services provide essential services to residents and their families. We also have a hearing aid specialist that comes in once a month to service the residents’ hearing aids and provide testing.
In healthcare today, from nursing homes to assisted livings to hospitals, employee turnover is at an all time high. At Camelot Place we enjoy an exceptionally low turnover rate. All staff members are treated as equal and each has important and relevant ideas to assure quality and loving care.
Brookdale Medina North has been recognized by many local organizations dedicated to making our community the great place it continues to be. The local chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association awarded us as a strategic partner in the fight against this devastating disease. Additionally, the United Way has recognized Camelot Place as a platinum member for our fundraising events that aid seniors in Medina County. Recently, Camelot Place was voted Best of the Best for assisted living in Medina County by the local Medina Gazette.
