Brookdale Melbourne offers a beautiful Assisted Living and Alzheimer’s and dementia care community for seniors. Our loving family redefines life for residents, respecting their individuality, and allowing them to live life more meaningfully. We offer all of the amenities of home, without any of the responsibilities or work!
With a continuum of care, residents have the security of knowing they can remain here, in their home, without having to relocate and separate from their familiar surroundings and friendships, should their needs change over time. Our emphasis is on providing you with numerous services, while helping you maintain your independence and health.
A Wonderful Place to Call Home
Set on beautifully landscaped grounds with a courtyard and lovely gardens, Melbourne is considered one of the premier retirement communities. We are conveniently located in an urban area of town near a theater, Melbourne Square Mall, hotels, doctors, Erma Nixon Park, Holmes Regional Medical Center and many rehabilitation facilities, if ever needed.
Our property has many oak trees that are over 100 years old. They provide an abundance of shade and are beautiful to admire as you walk our landscaped courtyards. Brookdale makes a simple promise, to be compassionate and kind, understanding and respectful, and we become extended family to our residents and their families.
We offer three different styles of senior apartments, all on one level for easy access to our residents, with no worries of staircases, difficulty maneuvering around in an elevator or confusing floor plans.
Whether having a meal with friends in the dining room, relaxing with a good book in the library, kicking back in the TV room, gazing at the stars under the gazebo or strolling along the walking paths in the courtyard, we give our seniors and their loved ones the opportunity to get to know one another, and enjoy each other’s company.
An Active and Engaging Lifestyle
An array of social, educational and cultural programs encourages residents to rekindle their past interests and explore new ones with friends. We value and rely on their feedback to plan activities they enjoy. Residents are offered a variety of live entertainment and outdoor excursions, and have an active recreational calendar that includes outings, crafts, entertainment, games, cooking, trivia, shopping, movie night, friendly chatter club and much more.
Substantial investments in our culinary program and staffing, allow us to provide mealtime experiences that set our communities apart from the competition. From Culinary Arts Training for chefs, to select seasonings and bakery options, Brookdale has 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 promote 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 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.

Levels of Care
As the population ages, more people are discovering senior Assisted 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 Melbourne offers two levels of care:
- Assisted Living provides personal assistance and support with daily activities and services needed, such as medication management, meals, bathing and dressing, as well as amenities for housekeeping and linen services, transportation and recreations. Our individualized care plans provide an ideal blend of convenience and support, with respect for personal preferences.
- Memory Care was created over 25 years ago and continually embraces current research in Alzheimer’s and dementia care, coupled with the experience of caring for thousands of people with dementia. Associates help residents create daily moments of success, offering opportunities for them to experience a sense of purpose and meaning. A gently daily structure is provided to help maintain and encourage current skills.
More About Memory 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 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 our staff to identify any unmet needs and be a part of the solution.
Strong, Professional Relationships and Loving Staff
We nurture strong relationships with area hospitals, skilled nursing facilities and rehabilitation centers such as Holmes Regional Medical Center, Wuestoff Medical Center Life Care Center Rehabilitation, HealthSouth Rehabilitation Hospital and Melbourne Terrace Rehabilitation. Through the communications we share with key staff members within these affiliations, we provide a seamless continuum of care for our residents.
Brookdale’s family values set us apart from any other senior living community. We are selective when choosing staff to join our team and serve our residents. 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.
