We host monthly “family nights” for our residents and families and events for the public so they can see what Brookdale Charleston Gardens has to offer. We also hold monthly Alzheimer’s support groups and events to support the Alzheimer’s Memory Walk campaign. There are also educational seminars offered to both residents and the public.
Our monthly “family nights” are filled with entertainment, often provided by the community’s own staff. We host an annual anniversary party and holiday parties with entertainment and great food. Our residents have many opportunities to be involved in many daily activities including exercise, religious events, crafts, and even happy hour. But if you ask some of the residents, one of the more exciting events are the corn hole games where they even hold a tournament.
