Hawthorne Park has a comfortable, welcoming feeling of warmth, love and an overall home-like experience. Our peaceful, quiet and serene location offers no-thru traffic, which is perfect for our daily Walking Club. The single story building has no steps, no stairs and no elevators, reducing slips, trips and falls. When you enter Brookdale, you are welcomed by a unique and creative Town Square featuring a library, Sweet Shop, full service beauty Salon and a private dining restaurant.
Four neighborhood dining rooms offer a small and enjoyable dining experience with a “southern” flavor menu created by our award winning Chef. Private apartments are rented on a monthly basis, fully carpeted, with individual climate controls and each neighborhood is close to all areas of interests and needs. There are plenty of places for gatherings and an outdoor courtyard provides a beautiful environment to relax with new friends and neighbors. Seniors can enjoy their retirement without the worry of laundry, housekeeping and preparing meals.
Morning exercise gathers residents and starts each day with a smile. Arts and crafts stimulate a variety of interests such as community service projects for local women shelters, and worship services that feed their spirit. Monthly, Hawthorne Park hosts a variety of resident and family events ranging from ice cream socials to blue grass concerts, keeping ties to our local community strong.
In addition, we offer a wide range of activities including parties, hobbies, exercise programs, continuing education classes, outside entertainment and off-site day excursions. Residents love trips to the Haywood Mall, a baseball game at the Fluor Field at the West End, the Greenville Zoo and the Swamp Rabbit Trail. All of our activities are created around each individual and their interests and desires.
Substantial investments in Brookdale’s culinary program and staffing, allow us to provide mealtime experiences that set our communities apart from the competition. From a Culinary Arts Training Program for chefs, to our select seasonings and bakery options, 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 the group dining room and 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.
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 Hawthorne Park offers two levels of care:
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 memory loss.
An established set of protocols and techniques enables our team to intervene when challenging behaviors resulting from dementia arise. Our whole-community philosophy is the key that empowers our staff to identify any unmet needs, and be a part of the solution.
Hawthorne Park maintains a strong affiliation with local healthcare providers ranging from hospitals to home health care and hospice. Residents can feel safe knowing some of the state’s best medical facilities are all within an easy drive. Brookdale has visiting physicians, rehabilitation and home health partners offering physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and additional medical services, which allow you to remain in your Assisted Living or Memory Care apartment and receive the exact services you need.
The longevity of qualified and nurturing caregivers, medical assistants and executive management contribute to the happiness of our residents and their families. Our staff is focused on exceeding your every expectation and take the time to stop and give someone a hug or even play a round of Gin Rummy with the resident “card sharks.” The services we offer, combined with our partnerships to reputable healthcare professionals, give you the security to live life as you please.
Optimum Life is a bold initiative that defines the way we live. By balancing six key dimensions of wellness with purpose, emotional, physical, social, spiritual and intellectual fulfillment, Optimum Life helps you live at your peak level within a lifestyle that promotes health and wholeness.
