Person-Centered Assisted Living and Alzheimer’s Care
Let your next move be your best one—we’ve got a space just for you at Brookdale Cordova. We offer Assisted Living and Alzheimer’s Care in Cordova, TN. We think we’re one of the best senior living communities in the area. Here’s why.
An Ideal Location
Our community is located just off of Interstates 40 and 240 in Cordova, Tennessee. Our location in this growing community just on the east side of Memphis gives us a peaceful, secluded feel. But we are also conveniently located near the Wolfchase Mall, local stores and a variety of restaurants.
Our locale also gives us great access to a wide range of activities. We’re conveniently near Shelby Farms and the Wolf River, where our more active residents often take advantage of recreational trails on outings. We are also centrally located between three of the top area hospitals: the brand new St. Francis Hospital-Bartlett, Baptist Memphis and Methodist Germantown Hospital. And for emergency care, there is even a skilled nursing/rehabilitation facility right next door.
Our Two Levels of Care
We offer our residents two levels of care at Brookdale Cordova — Assisted Living and Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care.
Assisted Living combines a rewarding lifestyle with comfortable accommodations, and is for our residents who need help with some daily activities like wardrobe, hygiene or dining. At Brookdale Cordova, it’s all done with the kind of service that you deserve.
For our Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care residents, safety and personal care is our first priority. Our people-first approach is geared specifically to each resident’s needs, and includes dining, behavioral problem solving and the kind of gentle, organized structure that these special residents need.
Service And Programs That Are A Cut Above
One of the first things you’ll notice when you visit is our warm, family atmosphere. It’s the kind of thing that sets us apart, and it’s only possible because we have a staff that truly loves what they do—taking care of our residents. But they’re not just friendly—they’re also highly trained, professional medical personnel ready to step in the very moment you need them. From nursing and daily care to medical emergencies, our staff stands ready to serve.
We’re pretty proud of our grounds as well. From our plush landscaping to our one-story ranch style building, you’ll find your new living space has the comfort and style that you deserve. Each of our 76 apartments (in three different sizes) was carefully decorated for style, but also specifically designed for your mobility needs.
Our common areas also include a lovely dining room, chapel, activity room and TV room. Whether you’re playing a weekly card game with your fellow residents, learning a new hobby in one of our exciting classes, or enjoying one of our regular theme nights, we think you’ll find Brookdale Cordova to be just the right combination of comfortable living and exceptional community.

Levels of Care
Brookdale Cordova offers multiple care levels — Assisted Living and Memory Care. This is a huge benefit to residents because we are able to continue caring for them, even if their needs change over the years.
So when you settle into our community, you won’t have to pick up and move if your situation changes in the future. Brookdale Cordova can remain your home filled with your dear friends and a staff that truly cares about you.
Sometimes you may need a little extra support during the day, perhaps for bathing, taking medication or getting dressed. But even with that little bit of support, you still want to maintain a level of independence. That’s where our staff can provide the right balance of care.
Our community provides care that combines independence with assistance and delivers service with compassion, understanding and respect. It’s all tailored to fit you and your needs. We work with each of our residents, understanding their needs first and then crafting together a plan that fits their situation. You only pay for the services that you need.
We also monitor your situation and needs during your stay, and can easily adjust plans at any time. But our goal is to provide you with an individualized experience, and make you feel like you have a partner with us. Our residents enjoy life with the confidence of knowing we are here for them, in whatever way they need.
For our Memory Care, we strive to help maintain residents’ abilities and encourage their current skills. We believe that each individual deserves to be treated with dignity and respect, and you’ll see that our staff strives to do that every day.
From the type of dining we offer to the activities available, we work to engage residents’ mental functions, encourage them to participate in purposeful activities, and involve them in many physical programs. Our goal is to provide opportunities for our seniors to feel a sense of meaning every day.
Our concept has embraced the latest research and innovations in the delivery of quality dementia care. Our teams have cared for thousands of individuals with dementia, as well as for their families.
Clare Bridge Training Program
Providing excellent dementia care is a complex task that requires ongoing guidance and teaching for our associates. All associates receive initial and on-going training in proper techniques, approach and care of persons with dementia.
Behavioral Problem-Solving Program
This established set of protocols and techniques enables associates to intervene when challenging behaviors resulting from dementia arise. The whole-community philosophy is the key that empowers all associates to identify the resident’s unmet needs and to be a part of a solution.
