Brookdale has a wonderful and comfortable feel the minute you walk in our door. We offer two apartment styles to meet your needs and preferences. All rooms have a kitchenette, private bathroom and residents can choose a favorite color to have their apartment painted, and personalize their space as they wish.
There are plenty of places for gatherings and an outdoor courtyard provides a beautiful environment to relax with friends and neighbors. Seniors can enjoy their retirement without the worry of laundry, housekeeping and preparing meals.
The Fort Walton Beach community ensures each resident maintains their privacy, dignity and independence while offering opportunities to engage in social interactions. Common areas include our own library, a recreation and activities room, the sun room and a beauty salon and barber shop. An exciting array of social, educational and cultural programs encourages exploring new interests, as well as sharing past favorites with new friends.
In addition, we offer a wide range of activities including parties, hobbies, exercise programs, continuing education classes, outside entertainment and off-site excursions such as Santa Rosa’s Mall, the Heritage Park and Cultural Center and the Air Force Armament Museum.
Our city has many restaurants and attractions, and we are only 5 miles from the beautiful beaches on Okaloosa Island, making it an easy trip for the afternoon.
Substantial investments in Brookdale’s 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 programs, we have 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 our dining room. Snacks are provided throughout the day. We continue to meet the nutritional needs of residents with dining choices that support their health and well-being. 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 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.

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.
We offer two levels of care:
- Assisted Living is 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 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.
Personalized Approach to Assisted Living
There may come a time when you or your loved may need additional help with daily tasks. We offer Assisted Living 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.
At Brookdale Fort Walton Beach, we provide care that balances independence with assistance and delivers service with compassion, understanding and respect. With comfortable, elegant accommodations and an impressive line of features and amenities, Brookdale residents enjoy life with the confidence of knowing we are here, partnering with you and your family, to customize solutions that support your needs as they evolve.
