Exceptional Senior Living Options in Dallas, Texas
Brookdale Lake Highlands 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.
Just like family, we provide the extra assistance seniors may need with daily activities, while always placing a focus on helping residents maintain privacy, dignity and independence.
Centrally located in the East Dallas area, Brookdale Lake Highlands is only five minutes from other great communities such as Garland, Mesquite, Plano, Preston Hollow, and Richardson. We are just minutes from shopping malls, restaurants, and entertainment venues that provide opportunities for residents to enjoy time with family and friends.
A Wonderful Selection
We understand that every senior has a unique journey. We work to get to know every resident in both our assisted living and memory care communities to ensure they have the care they need to live a healthy, happy life.
Our campus includes the following accommodations and levels of care:
- Assisted Living accommodations for those who may need some extra help with daily living activities. We balance assistance with independence, providing just the right amount care needed.
- For those who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or another form of dementia, our memory care community provides specialized care from a staff that is continuously trained in handling the unique needs of seniors with memory-related issues. Residents with Alzheimer’s or related memory challenges reside in a supportive environment with familiar surroundings. By helping seniors achieve daily moments of achievement, residents find new meaning and purpose in their daily lives.
