About Our Community
Assisted Living Florence, South Carolina

Our location is about ten miles from Rt. 95. We are six miles from downtown Florence, 60 miles from Myrtle Beach and 60 miles from Columbia, S.C. Florence is in a wonderful location and is located between the beach and the mountains with just about an hour or two from either location.
We have major lakes for fishing and boating just an hour away. The Leatherman Center is just around the corner from Brookdale Florence where the seniors of our community meet for exercise, bridge games, computer classes and foreign language classes. They are always having special singing and speakers from all over South Carolina. We have field trips planned every month that our residents can participate in. Two major hospitals are located just down the street from our location. The top physicians in Florence are located right across the street from our Laurel Gardens. We are close to all the major malls, stores, sporting venues and cultural arts centers.
A Wonderful Selection
When you pull up to Brookdale Florence there is a feeling of southern charm the minute you see our community, from its front porch with the rocking chairs, just waiting for that glass of lemonade, to walkways in our community that have that feeling of wonderful southern charm. You will be greeted with the feeling you are already part of our family. The garden is waiting for you with another porch for your afternoon snack overlooking the pond with its wonderful waterfall feature. The feeling you get when you sit and enjoy your refreshments in the afternoon sun makes you not want to leave.
The apartment choices are the largest rooms that are available in the Florence area. The overall atmosphere of our apartment living is like none other. You still have your independence with all the care and help that you may need.

Strong, Caring, Professional Relationships
We are always working with our local hospitals and local physicians to stay in close contact with them. This helps build a strong relationship with all of the health care providers in the Florence area. It is so nice that they are getting to know not only our residents but our staff.
