A family-friendly atmosphere makes it feel like home the moment you walk through our doors. Residents and their families can socialize in our many tastefully decorated common areas located throughout our three-story community. Families have the option of many different floor plans with several styles of brightly lit apartments, many with a lake view.
We offer many day excursions including Reds and Bengals sporting events, art exhibits, scenic drives and live musical entertainment. We sponsor community events throughout the year, including our Fall Country Living festival, Monte Carlo night and karaoke. Our vibrant retirement community is always full of exciting recreational activities as well as well as charitable organizations in the community.
Brookdale Edgewood features its own library, a private dining room, game area, fitness/rehab room, beauty and barber shop and a beautifully maintained courtyard. Spacious apartments give seniors the comforts of home, while ensuring they can maintain their privacy, dignity and independence. The array of social, educational and cultural programs encourages each resident to renew their old interests and explore new ones with friends and neighbors.
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.

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.
Brookdale Edgewood offers two levels of care:
- Personal Care – where residents receive personal assistance and support with the daily activities and services needed, such as medication management, meals, bathing and dressing, as well as daily living activities and 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.
- Also, now accepting residents in our new Crossings apartments, designed specifically for the needs of those with early-stage Alzheimer’s or Dementia.
Personalized Approach to Personal Care
There may come a time when you or your loved may need additional help with daily tasks. We offer Personal Care 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 Personal Care residents. Your customized care plan means you only pay for the services you need and want, giving you the flexibility to change your plan.
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.
Early-Stage Dementia Care
Persons in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias often experience loss of self-esteem and a lack of social engagement due to an increased awareness of their own cognitive decline. The programmatic concepts of the Clare Bridge Crossings program have as their foundation an increasing body of research that shows that a structured program of appropriate cognitive workout, regular physical exercise, and increased social interaction may help to slow the inevitable decline of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.
Clare Bridge Crossings is by nature a stepping-stone in Brookdale’s continuum of dementia care, and is not an appropriate setting for all persons with dementia. Managing the communities as a continuum is a critical piece of the success of Clare Bridge Crossings.
Strong Professional Relationships and Loving Staff
Residents can feel safe knowing some of the state’s best medical facilities are all within an easy drive. In addition, home health and rehabilitation providers from the immediate area come into our community and offer services such as physical and occupational therapy, here in the comfort of the resident’s own home or in one of our many common areas.
The Brookdale staff is proud of the longevity of qualified and nurturing caregivers, medical assistants and executive management. Our personalized approach encourages each person to continue to live as they please while respecting individual preferences. 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.
