Our Community

Many seniors think that by joining a senior living community they are giving up their freedom. But in fact, our goal is to help you keep your independence in tact. They way we interact and care for residents is with this goal in mind. Our residents enjoy having the freedom to make many of the same decisions they are used to making while living alone.

To understand our approach to resident care, here’s a brief description about our two lifestyle options at Brookdale Hawthorn Lakes:

  • Independent Living — Without the responsibilities of house maintenance, cooking or chores, our independent living residents are free to pursue a lifestyle of play and relaxation.
  • Assisted Living — We provide the right amount of assistance to make our residents’ lives easier and healthier, but letting them live as independently as possible.

Life at Brookdale Hawthorn Lakes

Living at our community allows you to simultaneously simplify your life while also adding life-enriching experiences and relationships. Simplicity comes from having us take care of tedious tasks like cleaning, cooking and laundry. Then you’ll be able to spend that time getting to know the other residents, who are in the same life stage as you.

At our community, you’ll have plenty of amenities and services available to keep your days filled with fun and relaxation. Our incredible activities, exercise and wellness programs, which can be tailored to your level of health and well-being, will keep you engaged and enjoying new experiences.

We also offer a great dining experience with table-side service in a beautiful setting where you can enjoy a delightful meal among friends. For your convenience, we also provide an on-site Wellness Clinic to meet your basic health needs.

With the 24-hour availability of our staff and continuum of care offered through our assisted living program, you have the peace of mind you need to live life to the fullest.

Levels of Care

At Brookdale Hawthorn Lakes, we can provide you with two different levels of care depending on your needs — Independent Living and Assisted Living. Here’s a little bit about our goals, aims and structure for our two lifestyle options:

Independent Living

During your time with us, you may want to meet new people, explore different interests and relax. Our community provides an Independent Living experience that allows you to live a relatively independent life without being burdened with daily chores.

As a resident you will enjoy the convenience of restaurant-style dining, housekeeping, laundry and transportation services in a desirable location near popular attractions with shopping and restaurants close to campus.

Hospitality and wellness are also key components to the Independent Living experience. Our residents can choose from a number of planned activities from our award-winning programs.

Assisted Living

With many years dedicated to serving seniors, we are able to provide an Assisted Living program that creates a balance between your desire for independence and any assistance you may need accomplishing daily tasks.

Sometimes you may need a little extra support during the day, perhaps for bathing, taking medication or getting dressed. Most people do at some point. But you still want to enjoy some independence. Well, our Assisted Living program is just for you.

We start with a Personal Service Assessment. We sit down with you to listen to you and understand the type of support you may need. You are an individual, and you deserve to have a care plan that reflects your individual needs.

So we work with you to create a customized plan that allows you to have the maximum level of independence while still remaining healthy and safe. If you need assistance for certain tasks, our staff will deliver that support with compassion, understanding and respect.
