Brookdale Friendswood offers a full range of accommodations to meet the needs of all seniors, giving residents the flexibility to be able to easily move between communities as their health needs change. Located in a separate building are 12 studio and one-bedroom senior apartments for our independent residents. All apartments offer a full kitchen and bathroom, weekly housekeeping, three meals a day, all utilities, transportation and complimentary use of a washer and dryer.
Our single-story assisted living community is located next door, offering 70 apartments consisting of four floorplans for studios, studio deluxe, and a one-bedroom. All senior apartments have windows and ceiling fans, individual temperature control, wall-to-wall carpeting and bathrooms with step-in showers. An emergency call system is located in the bathroom and living area.
Residents in our assisted living community enjoy our common areas. Our living room includes a baby grand piano, large-screen television, comfy sofas, a sitting area and mini library. We also offer a second living room where you will often find residents playing a game of cards. Our activities is a great space for residents to socialize and enjoy the company of friends and family.
Connected to the assisted living community, but located in a secured area, is our memory care neighborhood. Our community offers 30 apartments in two sizes, both featuring a private bathroom and shower. Each apartment has wall-to-wall carpeting, individual temperature control and can be shared by two residents as a “friendship suite.”
The memory care neighborhood offers one main common area with a television and sofa and two additional sitting areas, one with an organ and piano, the other with a television.
Each day at Brookdale Friendswood begins with an exercise program, followed by word games, bingo, card games and arts and crafts. We also have designated shopping days, doctor days and grocery store trips.
Throughout the month, our full-time Life Enrichment Director coordinates entertainment and artists. We also invite local performers to teach our residents activities, and many volunteers enjoy spending time and visiting with our seniors. In addition, we have weekly bible studies, church services and sing-alongs and many family-oriented events, such as picnics, potlucks, a Mother’s Day Tea, Easter egg hunts and of course, families are always invited to our holiday dinners.
Three meals a day are served restaurant style, which include a breakfast of made-to-order eggs, an array of breakfast meats, French toast, hot and cold cereal, pancakes, juice and coffee. Lunch is our main meal of the day and includes a main entrée and alternative. Our chef likes to cater to our residents’ preferences for local cuisine, and makes great Tex Mex and just about the best pot roast you’ll ever have. We also serve two to three snacks a day including cookies in the morning, ice cream in the afternoon and we even have our own ice cream café.
Our memory care residents are in their own dining room and on colorful plates that make it easier for them to see their meals. They also have three substantial snacks a day which is basically a total of six meals as people with memory impairments tend to lose weight due to their short attention span. We have one area in the dining room designated for residents who we know won’t get up while eating and another area for residents who tend to wander and walk around and need more assistance at meal time.
Brookdale Friendswood has caring and tenured staff. The reason for such longevity is simple. Our caregivers enjoy their job and are committed to our community and have a tremendous passion and love for the residents. In fact, we just conducted a survey of our residents and their families and many said they felt that the staff truly loved them and treated them with a great deal of respect.
The care of our residents is provided by experienced staff, including registered nurses in each of our communities and a wellness nurse. Our Resident Care Director and Executive Director, also a registered nurses, work together to oversee our community. With the skills and expertise of our nursing staff, we can often identify problems before accidents happen or before a resident becomes seriously ill. Our memory care neighborhood has its own dedicated staff trained in our Join Their Journey program.
