Premier Senior Living in Henderson, TX
Brookdale Henderson is a senior living community that offers Assisted Living and Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care options to our seniors. Our community is dedicated to enhancing health, wellness and lifestyle.
Located in Henderson, Texas, Brookdale Henderson is considered as one of the premier assisted living and memory care communities for seniors. Our community is conveniently located near historical downtown. Residents at Brookdale Henderson enjoy retirement living in our community of 57 apartments. 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
With its family-friendly atmosphere, Brookdale Henderson feels like home the moment you walk through the doors. Our common areas include two spacious living rooms with fireplaces, a beautiful, serene aquarium, grand piano, and large-screen TV; lovely dining room; library; barber/beauty shop; and activity room. The assisted living community also has two atriums – one on each side of the building – with lovely skylights, tables and chairs perfect for visiting with family and friends, putting jigsaw puzzles together or playing a game of cards or dominoes.
Brookdale Henderson offers a total of 57 senior apartments, all with spacious floor plans. Our assisted living apartments include a refrigerator, microwave, full bath with walk-in handicapped-accessible shower, wall-to-wall carpeting and large windows with blinds. Some of our apartments have French doors that open onto a patio. All utilities except telephone are included. In addition, each senior apartment is individually climate-controlled and pets up to 25 pounds are welcome at our community.
Our Memory Care Neighborhood offers 17 apartments set up just like our assisted living community, with the exception of the kitchenette. We do offer the option of a Friendship Suite, in which two residents share accommodations; however, that decision is completely up to the resident and their families. The spacious living room provides natural sunlight from the skylight and includes a fireplace and piano which makes it the perfect setting for some of our activities, socials, and entertainment. Our beautiful secured courtyard and two large patios enable residents to easily enjoy many outdoor activities as well.
Brookdale’s unique Optimum Life approach to resident activities balances six key dimensions of wellness – purposeful, emotional, physical, social, spiritual and intellectual. Intended as a journey of self-examination and discovery, it includes services, features and benefits that allow each resident to reach these goals, regardless of real or perceived limitations.
“Our family” will soon be “your family” as together we care for those we love. Brookdale Henderson takes tremendous pride in the longevity and tenure of its staff. Our community is fortunate to have many tenured staff members, with us for many years, who are committed to making the difference for the seniors we serve. At Brookdale Senior Living, our staff truly lives our promise, “Our Family Is Committed To Yours.”
Strong, Caring Professional Relationships
Brookdale Henderson is dedicated to maintaining professional relationships with nearby physicians, as well as hospice agencies, home health agencies and inpatient/outpatient rehabilitation services. When residents require physical, occupational or speech therapy, we will provide referrals, but of course, it’s always up to the resident and family to decide with whom they’d like to work.
Therapists can provide services right on site, in the convenience of the resident’s home. When any third-party caregiver comes into our community, their visit is recorded in the resident’s chart, so that our nursing staff is always kept up to date on their resident’s status. These relationships allow for aging in place and often prevent the need to relocate to a nursing home which allows you and your loved one to remain in a familiar home-like environment.
