Buford is located in North Georgia near the metro Atlanta community area, and along the southern edge of beautiful Lake Lanier. We are a closely knit community which has built its foundation on the importance of family and friends.
With three apartment layouts to choose from, you are sure to find the perfect option for you or your loved one. All apartment bathrooms are modified with senior-friendly shower seats and handrails. Our goal is to make every new resident feel at home whether they are here for a respite stay or longer. You are sure to feel that our home is filled with love.
Brookdale Buford’s formal living room and dining room are connected by our marbled entrance and tear-drop chandelier. Our activity room has many books, tapes and a new 60-inch television which the residents utilize when gathering for their favorite movies and programs.
An outdoor area is designed with rockers under our pavilion as well as flower and vegetable gardens maintained by the residents themselves. Our courtyard is a delight for the eyes and receives many compliments from visitors and guests.
Brookdale Buford offers our residents a personalized monthly calendar of events. Choices in social, physical, mental, spiritual, cultural and creative activities are designed to meet the interests of each person. Suggested activities are introduced by residents monthly that really make Buford’s life engagement program exciting and fun for everyone.
Residents can enjoy outings, such as trips to Jaemor Farms for freshly grown produce and tastes of sweet southern preserves. The Mall of Georgia is also a main attraction as it is just five miles from our community. From a relaxing atmosphere to themed events and day excursions, we are a truly well-rounded community of care and support.
Social programs include cookouts in the summer, Mother and Fathers’ Day buffet luncheons and Sunday dinners are among some of the favorite celebrations. Annual holiday parties are highlights of the year as we celebrate each one as a family. Drive-in movies, complete with popcorn and candy, religious services exercise classes and bingo, create everlasting memories and give everyone a reason to smile.
The dining experience is fundamental to the health and wellness of our residents, and we have developed delicious and nutritional meals that meet individual dietary needs. Walk into our “restaurant” and be pampered by a dining staff who caters to your preferences. We welcome you to our table to enjoy three delicious meals a day with new friends and new beginnings.
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.
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.
Personal care provides residents 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.
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.
We maintain close relationships with local geriatric physicians, rehabilitation centers and skilled nursing facilities and feel that we all have the same goal in caring for our senior population. With such common ground, we communicate well with these affiliates to provide the best care and services possible.
There is nothing more heart warming than seeing familiar faces you have grown to trust, and this is what we offer every day. Many of our staff members have been at the community for years and residents have trusting and secure relationships with them. Our associates offer day-to-day care with nurturing support and loving hearts.
Buford is home to many veterans and community leaders and in fact, events honoring local heroes are held monthly. We sponsor quarterly professional luncheons for local health providers. Brookdale also offers an Alzheimer’s support group and monthly education series for current and future residents. Our staff and residents take great pride in offering events and outreach activities that provide support and excitement to our community.
