Our Community

Brookdale Merrillville is an Assisted Living community that has been serving seniors for many years by providing exceptional care, amenities and hospitality. We offer an individualized experience at our community.

Our emphasis is on providing a wonderful assisted living lifestyle for you, where you maintain a high level of independence and self-sufficiency. We don’t force our assistance on you — we only provide what you need. Whether it’s getting dressed in the morning or taking your medication, we are here to provide a helping hand with certain daily tasks.

Brookdale Merrillville is an intimate, single-story building designed and built to provide comfort, beauty and privacy. We are located on Virginia Street, which is close to Broadway and I-65. Our convenient location means you’ll be able to reach all parts of the city easily. However, you won’t have to travel far to find great entertainment and dining options. Places like Panera, Outback Steakhouse, the Southlake Mall, and Centier Bank are just a short drive away.

Beautiful & Comfortable Surroundings

When you walk through our front doors, you’ll notice a charming and home-like atmosphere. We want our residents to feel comfortable during their stay with us. That’s why we offer private apartments, so you can enjoy your own space if you desire.

Our community was constructed to allow easy access for those with limited mobility. We’ve made our apartments more spacious and open so residents can walk around without having to navigate tight corners. Our single-story building also means you won’t have to deal with tricky steps or slow elevators. You’ll be able to get to our many common areas, which provide much entertainment, quickly and with ease.

Delightful Dining Experience

We’ve invested in developing a culinary system that’s equivalent to a fine dining restaurant. From our culinary arts training program for community chefs to our select seasonings and bakery programs, we’ve created one of the best dining experiences in Indiana senior living.

Levels of Care

As an Assisted Living community, we have the resources, staff and experience to deliver the perfect combination of helpful service with respect for your independence. Unlike other communities that may offer multiple care options, we specialize in just one. That way you can be confident that you are getting the best type of Assisted Living care with us.

Personalized Approach to Assisted Living

At Brookdale Merrillville, we can offer help if you need assistance with daily activities such as bathing, dressing and administering needed medication. Just like family, we provide the extra assistance you may need with your daily activities, while helping you maintain the privacy, dignity and independence that means so much to you.

Our skilled and trained staff does more than just provide you with the right kind of assistance to live a healthy and safe lifestyle. We can offer care plans that are customized to fit your particular needs.

It all starts with a Personal Service Assessment. With each of our residents, we sit down and listen to their needs. We don’t try to force a care plan on you. Instead, we work with you to figure out the level of assistance you feel comfortable with. Our support is based on only what you need, so you don’t end up paying for a ton of extra services.

We strive to provide an individualized experience for each of our residents. It’s evident in the customized plans that we offer, but it’s also apparent in the atmosphere we provide for our seniors. We learn details about our residents — from their favorite snack and recipe to a lifelong passion — and use that to provide a truly individualized living experience.
