Brookdale Downtown Sarasota is committed to providing the best services and care to our residents. Whether you need independent living, assisted living or memory care, you can expect for our staff members to treat you or your loved one with respect and kindness.
When you live alone or with a partner, there are so many chores that you have to accomplish. From cooking regularly to doing the laundry to tending to the yard, all of these tasks can be burdensome. Plus, they take up time you could be doing other things — spending time with friends and family, enjoying old hobbies or discovering new ones, and playing fun games.
When you become an independent living resident, our staff takes care of these chores for you. No more having to drive to the grocery store and plan out meals. Instead, you’ll be able to sit down at our fine dining room and be served delicious meals three times a day. The only time you’ll need to cook is when you want to — for fun, not necessity. We’ll take care of the chores you don’t want to so you can enjoy your independence fully.
At Brookdale Downtown Sarasota, we serve our assisted living residents by providing just the right amount of assistance and care to make their lives easier, while enabling them to live as independently as possible. Our associates are here to support the care that you and other family members already provide.
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 a customized care plan. You only pay for the services you need and want, plus you have the flexibility to change your plan.
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.
