Located in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, our community is set in a picturesque area of Canton. Northwest Georgia’s colorful seasons will delight the visual senses. The convenience to hospitals, doctor offices, shopping, restaurants, movie theaters and parks, facilitates wellness and peace of mind to our residents and their families.
A family-friendly atmosphere feels like home the moment you walk through our doors. All on one level for easy access, our community consists of 65 senior living apartments. Spacious studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments are available. Our Alzheimer’s and memory care secured community consists of 28 studio apartments. We encourage all our residents to personalize their room to their individual style, maintaining their unique comforts of home.
Residents and their families can socialize in the many tastefully decorated common areas located throughout our community. We feature covered patios and gardens, our own library and reading area, a lovely dining room, game area, wellness center and on-site beauty and barber shop.
An array of social, educational and cultural programs encourages each resident to renew their old interests and explore new ones with friends and neighbors.
Brookdale Canton offers many planned activities each week and can include day excursions such as the Tellus Science Museum, Gibbs Gardens or the Tanglewood Farm Miniatures.
Our vibrant retirement community swims at the YMCA, plays Wii games and bingo, celebrates special occasions and has bible study and weekly church services, ensuring that each resident can remain active and have meaningful days.
Substantial investments in our 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 options, Brookdale has 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 offer satisfying entrees while meeting dietary requirements.
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 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.
We have witnessed first-hand the wide range of physical and emotional benefits that pets have provided for our residents. Not only do they offer companionship, they can also lower the risk for heart disease and help ease any feelings of stress, depression or loneliness.
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.
Brookdale Canton offers two levels of care:
There may come a time when you or your loved may need additional help with daily tasks. We offer personal care so you’ll be prepared, if or when you need more assistance.
It all begins with a personal service assessment. We take the time to listen to our residents, so we can understand their needs; then we establish clinical, dining and program support that works for them in a meaningful way.
We partner with our residents, recognizing their individual needs and preferences, and adjust services to meet their changing needs. So whether it’s a unique snack, the celebration of a favorite season or a lifelong interest, we value the privilege of knowing our residents and building relationships with them to create a truly personalized living experience.
With our exclusive personal service system, you can live your life the way you want with the right care at the right time, delivered by the right people.
Through years of experience serving seniors, we have developed a process that allows us to customize personal care plans for our assisted living residents. Your customized care plan means you only pay for the services you need and want, giving you the flexibility to change your plan.
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 dementia.
An established set of protocols and techniques enables our team to intervene when challenging behaviors resulting from dementia arise. The whole-community philosophy is the key that empowers our staff to identify any unmet needs and be a part of the solution.
Residents can feel safe knowing some of the state’s best medical facilities are all within an easy drive. We nurture strong relationships with area hospitals, skilled nursing and rehabilitation centers allowing us to provide a seamless continuum of care for our residents.
All of the services we provide are customized to personal and unique needs by creating a way of life that enriches the lives of others through compassion, respect, excellence and integrity.
Brookdale’s family values set us apart from any other senior living community. We are selective when choosing staff to join our team and serve our residents. Only those with a caring heart and experience working with seniors are accepted into our family.
We are proud of the longevity of qualified and nurturing caregivers, medical assistants and executive management, and our personalized approach encourages each person to continue to live as they please while respecting individual preferences.
