Superior Senior Living in Brandon, Mississippi
Brookdale Brandon is a senior living community that offers personalized Assisted Living and Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care. We are dedicated to enhancing health, wellness and lifestyle.
Offering uncompromised living, our community was specifically designed for seniors who need some assistance with daily living, such as medication management, dressing, or bathing and for those who are experiencing some memory loss.
Our community is located in the Castlewood area of Brandon, and close to one of the most popular shopping areas in the Hinds, Madison and Rankin Counties. Our area is also privileged to be conveniently located within a close proximity to four hospitals and multiple physicians’ offices all of which are within a five mile radius. The Ross Barnett Reservoir is a favorite attraction for our residents and we are minutes away from this scenic stop. We have the feel of a small community, but yet all the amenities of the metropolitan area.
A Wonderful Selection
Brookdale Brandon offers a one-bedroom and studio senior apartment. Each of our apartments feature a kitchenette with a refrigerator, microwave and sink, private baths, and entertainment centers. Residents can decorate their apartment to their liking.
Our living areas are located throughout the building for residents to socialize and enjoy visits from family and friends. Our spacious family room is a great space for social gatherings and our library gives our residents a space to relax with a good book. For those that want to be outside, our enclosed courtyard and gardening areas provide an area to walk or just sit and enjoy the beautiful grounds. Residents can also take advantage of our beauty salon.
