Brookdale Highlands features a friendly environment where common living areas, an inviting dining room, and a warm kitchen naturally bring people together. In your private apartment, you’ll have all the comforts of home. And with the addition of your personal furniture and cherished possessions, it’s sure to be an even brighter place.
As a resident, you will enjoy delicious meals and may take part in as many of our social and recreational activities as you choose. Whether reading a book from our library, tending to your favorite plants or flowers in the outdoor gardening area or joining in an arts and crafts project, Brookdale Highlands feels like home the moment you walk through our doors.
Integral to life at Brookdale Highlands are the programs, outings and opportunities we offer. Our philosophy is to incorporate not only individual interests, but also opportunities that allow residents to make meaningful contributions to each other and the community on a regular basis. An array of social, educational and cultural programs encourages each resident to rekindle their past interests and explore new ones with friends and neighbors.
We love taking our seniors out to local restaurants, unique shops and on exciting day excursions. Favorite attractions include visiting Circle B Bar Reserve, Hollis Garden, Lake Mirror and Polk Theatre. Every resident offers something special to our senior living community, and we strive to tailor activities that represent their individual interests, hobbies and talents.
Our mealtime experiences truly set us apart from the competition. From our highly trained chefs to our extensive menu options, Brookdale has created one of the industry’s leading dining services.
Three restaurant-style meals are served each day in our dining room and snacks are provided throughout the day. We continue to meet the nutritional needs of residents by providing healthy dining choices. Each meal offers a selection of delicious meals and 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. Each resident sits at the same table each day to make them feel more comfortable. Meals are served on colorful plates and tablecloths so they can 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.
Through both our assisted living and memory care options, Brookdale Highlands focuses on being a trusted partner and listening to your needs. Our aim is to understand the life you want for yourself or a loved one and customize a solution that puts that life within reach.
Want to learn more about our approach to senior living care? Take a closer look at the different care options we offer — assisted living and memory care.
Through our assisted living care, our staff provides extra support during daily living activities such as getting dressed, bathing, and administering medication. Our goal is support residents’ independence by ensuring they can accomplish all tasks safely. We also provide additional services like housekeeping, linen services, transportation and recreation. This allows our residents the freedom to spend their time doing what they love, instead of slaving away over household chores.
As part of our assisted living care, we provide a personalized assessment that evaluates your individual needs and preferences. Then we customize a care plan to meet those needs. Your plan is based upon the amount of time it takes to provide quality services, and we recognize and can adjust services easily.
Caregivers regularly review service plans in order to ensure we meet the changing needs of residents. Our trained staff is there to assist with personal needs 24-hours a day.
For many seniors, assisted living gives just the level of care needed to flourish and triumph in their new phase of life. After all, the golden years should be enjoyable, and our community provides more options than ever before to make this possible.
Our memory care offers resources, 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 memory care 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 dementia.
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 staff members to identify any unmet needs and be a part of the solution.
We are selective when choosing staff to join our team and serve our residents, and only those with a caring heart and experience in working with seniors are accepted into our family.
We are proud of the longevity of qualified and nurturing caregivers, medical assistants and executive management, and our personalized approach encourages each person to continue to live as they please, while respecting individual preferences.
