Brookdale Colonial Park is a wonderful place to call home and provides the perfect retirement experience for our residents. Conveniently located in the center of Sarasota, FL our community is just minutes from the international airport and Siesta Key, which has been voted one of the world’s most beautiful beaches.
Set on ten southern acres with graceful oak trees and colorful landscaping, our community is one of comfort and hospitality. The entrance of our property has a traditional southern setting of centennial oak trees, lush landscaping and a red brick exterior with large white columns lining a relaxing front porch area. The most common comment we hear is “Your community is so warm and welcoming.”
We offer roomy one-bedroom apartments and studios, with huge walk-in closets, a large kitchen area, as well as large walk-in showers. Some apartments have outdoor access to our courtyard area. All are on one level for easy access to the dining room, library, large living room, activity center, lanai, rehabilitation therapy suite and courtyard. Residents can relax in the privacy of their own apartment or enjoy the many group common areas with the company of new friends in the community.
Our senior living community allows residents to plan the activities they enjoy. Each day is filled with echoes of laughter in the hallways that stem from a calendar of enriching activities. Choices in social, physical, mental, spiritual, cultural and creative activities are encouraged. A variety of live entertainment and day excursions are offered, all with the security of knowing care is available, if needed.
Begin your day with an exercise class, followed by Wii bowling, horse racing, beach ball, volleyball, coffee chat, craft club, movies and popcorn or Bingo. We take weekly bus trips to local stores and personal physicians, as well as to outside events. Resident council decisions are instrumental in planning which entertainers to host and how to best showcase the talents of everyone that lives here.
Our mealtime experiences truly set us apart from the competition. From our highly trained chefs to our extensive menu options, Brookdale has created one of the industry’s leading dining services.
Three restaurant-style meals are served each day in our dining room and snacks are provided throughout the day. We continue to meet the nutritional needs of residents by providing healthy dining choices. Each meal offers a selection of delicious meals and 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. Each resident sits at the same table each day to make them feel more comfortable. Meals are served on colorful plates and tablecloths so they can 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.
Through both our assisted living and memory care options, Brookdale Colonial Park focuses on being a trusted partner and listening to your needs. Our aim is to understand the life you want for yourself or a loved one and customize a solution that puts that life within reach.

Through our assisted living care, our staff provides extra support during daily living activities such as getting dressed, bathing, and administering medication. Our goal is to support residents’ independence by ensuring they can accomplish all tasks safely. We also provide additional services like housekeeping, linen services, transportation and recreation. This allows our residents the freedom to spend their time doing what they love, instead of slaving away over household chores.
As part of our assisted living care, we provide a personalized assessment that evaluates your individual needs and preferences. Then we customize a care plan to meet those needs. Your plan is based upon the amount of time it takes to provide quality services, and we recognize and can adjust services easily.
Caregivers regularly review service plans in order to ensure we meet the changing needs of residents. Our trained staff is there to assist with personal needs 24-hours a day.
For many seniors, assisted living gives just the level of care needed to flourish and triumph in their new phase of life. After all, the golden years should be enjoyable, and our community provides more options than ever before to make this possible.
Our memory care offers resources, 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 memory care 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. Our whole-community philosophy is the key that empowers staff members to identify any unmet needs and be a part of the solution.
We are selective when choosing staff to join our team and serve our residents, and only those with a caring heart and experience working with seniors are accepted into our family.
