Exceptional Senior Living in Fredericksburg, Virginia
Brookdale Fredericksburg is a beautiful senior living community offering Assisted Living and Alzheimer’s and dementia care services for seniors. With a continuum of care, our loving family supports those needing assistance with daily activities. Residents have the security of knowing they can remain here, in their home, without having to relocate and separate from their familiar surroundings and friendships, should their needs change over time.
Our vibrant community is located only an hour south of Washington, D.C. but in its own highly historic environment. Fredericksburg’s property is impeccably maintained and provides all of the comforts of home, with the security of loving and supportive care. We are convenient to Interstate 95, and numerous health care specialists are all within range of our transportation service, if ever needed.
A Wonderful Lifestyle
Set on five acres of beautifully landscaped grounds with an outdoor courtyard, we are one of Virginia’s premier retirement communities. Our senior living residence offers 99 senior apartments on three floors. Here our residents, and in many cases their pets, enjoy retirement living in a home-like setting, knowing that a helping hand from our warm, caring staff is always close by.
Brookdale offers a wide variety of social and entertaining activities. From bingo, bowling, movies and church functions, to trips and excursions outside of the community, Fredericksburg offers it all. Residents have the freedom to enjoy life at their own pace.
The Fredericksburg community ensures each resident maintains their privacy, dignity and independence while offering opportunities to engage in social interactions. Group common areas include our own library, a recreation and activities room, the family room and a beauty salon and barber shop. An exciting array of social, educational and cultural programs encourages exploring new interests, as well as sharing past favorites with new friends.
Residents have a wealth of history surrounding them. A mile away, Fredericksburg’s best shopping is available at Spotsylvania Towne Center and Central Park, and we are within minutes of dozens of Civil War battlefields and museums.
You can participate in wonderfully planned trips to places such as the Marine Corp Museum, a picnic at Lake Anna, a riverboat cruise or a trip to replenish your fridge. Outings specific to the charm of historic Fredericksburg include local trolley tours and classic Carl’s soft serve ice cream.
Numerous entertaining groups visit Brookdale on a monthly basis, often developing personal relationships with our residents. If quiet time is in order, many residents enjoy the various areas of the community to rest, relax and socialize. Enjoy our newly-built gazebo, a large front porch and our living room, complete with gas fireplace. Friendships develop and experiences are shared throughout the building.
Substantial investments in Brookdale’s culinary program and staffing, allow us to provide mealtime experiences that set our communities apart from the competition. From our Culinary Arts Training for chefs, to our select seasonings and bakery programs, we have created one of the industry’s leading dining services. Our fine dining experience is prepared by a trained chef and receives nutritional support and recommendations from a registered dietician.
Three restaurant-style meals are served each day in the group dining room and snacks are provided throughout the day. We continue to meet the nutritional needs of residents with dining choices that support their health and well-being. Each meal offers a selection of delicious choices, sensational service and we always accommodate special restrictions and requests.
To help alleviate any confusion or added stress, we keep mealtimes very routine for our Memory Care community. Residents all sit together at the same time and same table each day. Meals are served on colorful plates and tablecloths so that they can more easily distinguish their food. We also provide easy-to-eat snacks between meals, helping to ensure these residents get the nutrition and calorie count they need.

Levels of Care
As the population ages, more people are discovering assisted senior living and the peace of mind we offer. Our community’s approach focuses on being a trusted partner and listening to your needs, understanding the life you want for yourself or a loved one and customizing a solution that puts that life within reach.
Two Levels of Care
Brookdale Fredericksburg offers two levels of care:
- Assisted Living provides personal assistance and support with the daily activities and services needed, such as medication management, meals, bathing and dressing, as well as amenities for housekeeping and linen services, transportation and recreations. Our individualized care plans provide an ideal blend of convenience and support, with respect for personal preferences.
- Memory Care was created over 25 years ago and continually embraces current research in Alzheimer’s and dementia care, coupled with the experience of caring for thousands of people with dementia. Associates help residents create daily moments of success, offering opportunities for them to experience a sense of purpose and meaning. A gently daily structure is provided to help maintain and encourage current skills.
More About Memory Care
Memory Care at Brookdale offers programs and a secure environment for those with Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia. We believe that no matter where an individual is in their life, each has the right to live in a dignified manner and enjoy meaningful experiences every day.
Deeply rooted in a person-centered approach, our program focuses on sustaining feelings of belonging and purpose while seeking to preserve a sense of self. Providing excellent dementia care is a complex task that requires ongoing guidance and teaching for our staff members. All of our highly trained associates receive initial and on-going training in proper techniques, approach and care for seniors with memory loss.
An established set of protocols and techniques enables our team to intervene when challenging behaviors resulting from dementia arise. Our whole-community philosophy is the key that empowers our staff to identify any unmet needs, and be a part of the solution.
Optimum Life is a bold initiative that defines the way we live. By balancing six key dimensions of wellness with purpose, emotional, physical, social, spiritual and intellectual fulfillment, Optimum Life helps you live at your peak level within a lifestyle that promotes health and wholeness. 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.
