Brookdale Kenner is a senior living community that offers Adult Residential Care and Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care. Our community is dedicated to enhancing health, wellness and lifestyle. Our community was specifically designed for seniors who need some assistance with daily living, such as medication management, dressing, or bathing and for those who are experiencing some memory loss.
Our community is located off Williams Boulevard and near many great attractions such as Treasure Chest Casino, Chateau Golf Course and the Esplanade Mall. We are minutes away from Ochsner Hospital and East Jefferson Hospital, and the Louis Armstrong International Airport.
A Wonderful Selection
Brookdale Kenner is a family environment that offers residents the choice of four different senior apartment styles with kitchenettes, walk-in closets, bay windows and a wireless emergency call system. We have a New Orleans inspired enclosed courtyard which leads into our atrium style lobby.
Our lobby is arranged with a baby grand piano which encourages residents and others to entertain and socialize. We provide safe transportation for our residents to physician appointments, shopping and other outings. Our residents enjoy the Ponchatrain Parlor, which has a seating area with a large screen television and movies. For residents looking for a more quiet setting, there is a library with a multitude of books available and internet access.
Brookdale’s unique Optimum Life approach to resident activities balances six key dimensions of wellness – purposeful, emotional, physical, social, spiritual and intellectual. 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.

Brookdale offers programs and safe environments for those with Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia. We believe no matter where an individual is on life’s journey, each has the right to live in a dignified manner and to enjoy meaningful experiences every day.
Deeply rooted in a person-centered approach, our Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care program, also called the Clare Bridge program, focuses on sustaining feelings of belonging, purpose and safety while seeking to preserve a sense of self. The Clare Bridge concept has evolved over the last 25 years through research and innovations in quality dementia care. Our experienced teams have cared for thousands of individuals with dementia and their families.
The Clare Bridge Daily Path provides residents with a structured routine of activities that help maintain their abilities and encourage the use of their current skills. The Daily Path includes programs such as discussion groups as a mental workout and daily physical exercise such as dancing. The Daily Path gives each resident purpose and a sense of security that they are “right where they need to be.”
