If you are looking to simplify life without compromising your desire for an active lifestyle, you’ll love what we have to offer. Independent Living gives a rewarding experience for independent seniors with elegant accommodations, restaurant-style dining, laundry services and the ability to trade in the responsibilities of home maintenance for the sophisticated comfort of a well-deserved retirement.
Hendersonville is a wonderful retirement town with shopping, restaurants and every amenity our residents could need, including two hospitals and several skilled nursing facilities. What they don’t find here is available in Asheville, the cultural and arts Mecca of the Western North Carolina region, which is just 30 minutes away. Several larger hospitals are also located in Asheville.
Bright and spacious single-floor cottages are available in one, two and three-bedroom configurations. Each offers a full kitchen, some with granite counter-tops, new appliances, a washer/dryer, one or two full baths, an over-sized garage that has been sealed with a slip-resistant surface, a sun porch with deck and large bay windows. Residents are offered a choice of carpet or laminated hardwood floors, whichever suits their tastes. Most of the homes are situated along a circle and look out onto the natural wooded area beyond.
Our full-time Life Enrichment Director takes full advantage of our fantastic location, offering all kinds of day and overnight excursions to points both near and far, which include the Outer Banks and day-trip picnics to Blowing Rocks and Whitewater Falls. Residents can attend a local ballgame or go to Asheville to enjoy the theater.
Brookdale’s clubhouse is centrally located and offers a meeting area with tables and a large-screen television, full-service dining room, library and computer room and billiards room. You can easily walk or drive-up for daily dinner, or we can pick you up by van. Along the back of our campus is a wonderful organic garden, tended by staff and residents alike. Produce grown in the garden makes its way into our kitchen and is enjoyed by all.
Multicultural staff members are true professionals with caring hearts. They are committed to always making the extra effort to help all of our residents with whatever they need. Our caregivers are highly motivated and love their jobs, which we attribute to a culture in which all are treated like family. In fact, we treat our residents just like we would our own families. The Brookdale family is truly committed to yours.
An incredible housekeeping and maintenance team is here to help residents with any indoor or outdoor need, and our cleaning staff comes by every other week to thoroughly clean each cottage. Once a year, they conduct a deep cleaning. Whether you need a light bulb changed or your front bushes trimmed, we are here to assist. Maintenance is also responsible for keeping our roads clear of ice and snow, and as necessary, we always ensure our residents can easily get around in inclement weather.
Independent Living promotes a rewarding lifestyle for independent seniors. We provide vacation-style amenities and programs, allowing you the freedom to live a more relaxed retirement lifestyle. As the population ages, more people are discovering senior Independent Living and the benefits and peace of mind we offer. The Golden years should be enjoyable, and our community provides more options than ever before to make this possible.
Our commitment to fine dining is for every resident and their guests to have positive dining experiences. We offer three, well presented, restaurant-style meals daily which are served in our warm and friendly dining room. A knowledgeable and trained staff along with a registered dietician, make certain that meals are nutritionally balanced and supportive of the health and well-being of our residents.
From Brookdale’s Culinary Training Program for community chefs, to our select seasonings and bakery programs, we have created one of the industry’s leading dining services. We continue to satisfy the preferences and nutritional needs of each person with fulfilling dining choices and always accommodate special dietary requirements and requests.
Our community has close partnerships with many outside home health agencies, and they are welcome to provide their services and care here, in the residents own home or common areas. Whatever service you need, we can help coordinate. We are always happy to make recommendations, but of course, the choice of whom to work with is always up to you.
Optimum Life is a bold initiative that defines the way we live at Brookdale. 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 and within a lifestyle that promotes health and wholeness. Intended as a journey of self-examination and discovery, it includes services, features and benefits that allow each resident to reach these goals, regardless of real or perceived limitations.
We have witnessed first-hand the wide range of physical and emotional benefits that pets have provided for our residents. Not only do they offer companionship, they can also lower the risk for heart disease and help ease any feelings of stress, depression or loneliness.
