What Our Assisted Living Community Can Offer You

Do you find yourself wishing you had more time in the day for your family, friends or hobbies? Or maybe you’re starting to notice you could use a little help getting around. Our residents enjoy a life rich in quality care, genuine relationships and fun activities. From superior dining to assistance with personal grooming and managing medication, we give you the chance to make the most of your golden years.

Here are some of the ways we can support you throughout your day so you can feel free to live life at your own pace:

Personal Assistance
Our kind and compassionate team can help you with the little things—like simple housekeeping and meals—and with more involved activities, such as clothing selection, getting dressed and managing medications. We customize your care so you can receive the care you need—and none that you don’t. You can also have peace of mind knowing we have staff available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to be alerted to an emergency.

Health and Wellness
You can focus on personal wellness with signature programs that help keep you engaged and connected. For a mental fitness workout, check out our Flex Your Brain sessions. You can also stay active with our B-Fit fitness program—eight different class options promise to keep each experience fresh and engaging. We also create opportunities for adventure with scheduled transportation services to local shopping spots, restaurants and area attractions.

Lifestyle Services
How would you like to start your day? You could have your morning coffee on the porch and then do a little gardening in our courtyard garden. Or do you want to play a card game or board game with friends in the game room? You decide. Enjoy your morning newspaper in the living room by the fireplace or pick up a new book to read from our library. And don’t forget to make your next hair appointment at our beauty salon on campus.

Home-Like Environment
You’ll have four different floor plans to choose from when you move in here, each one customizable to your own personal decorating preference. All of our apartments have plenty of window light and a kitchenette with a refrigerator, microwave and sink. Plus some even have a garden view or den. We can even help you make your apartment your own space by hanging pictures for you. And pets, who we consider to be part of the family, are welcome here.

Common Questions About Assisted Living

Assisted living communities are designed for seniors who need a little extra help with activities like managing medication, bathing and dressing. Residents usually have their own apartment that they can decorate as they wish and have access to community amenities like dining programs, social activities and more.

Skilled nursing communities are supportive environments that provide healthcare resources like physical, occupational and speech therapy. At Brookdale, our skilled nursing team provides round-the-clock nursing care seven days a week.

It’s okay if you don’t know which level of care you or your loved one needs. Our assisted living communities can do an assessment to determine the right amount of care for you.

Knowing when the time is right can be a little tricky since everyone’s circumstances are a little different. Generally speaking, assisted living is a great option for seniors who could benefit from assistance with the daily tasks of life, like personal grooming or managing medication. Community life is also ideal for seniors who want to live in a place that provides social activities with people in their same stage of life.

The cost of assisted living varies widely depending on where you live, the type of apartment you choose and the level of care you need. One of the benefits of living at a Brookdale community is that you only pay for the care services you need, which means you can almost always find something that fits within your budget. 

Medicare and other federal programs typically don’t cover the cost of assisted living. You will likely need to pay with personal savings, assets or long-term care insurance.

Some of our assisted living communities have different guidelines, but you are often welcome to bring personal belongings and furnishings to make your new space feel more like home. We always encourage our residents to personalize their apartment so it feels comfortable, inviting and relaxing.

We offer a variety of room sizes and floor plans so you can choose the one that’s right for you. While styles vary between communities, our apartments are designed to feel and function like a home, with kitchens, bathrooms and plenty of light from the windows. Couples can usually live in the same apartment, but it’s wise to check with the community first.

You are not required to have a car to live at one of our communities. We provide scheduled transportation services so you can run errands and make your appointments without dealing with the hassle of driving and parking. However, if you still want to drive, many of our communities allow residents to have cars.

Pets are an important part of the family, which is why most of our communities are pet-friendly. Be sure to check with your individual community before you arrive in case there are weight or breed restrictions.

We try to welcome as many individuals as possible, but our number one priority is a resident’s health. If we believe a senior needs more care than we can provide, we can make suggestions for an alternative care solution.

No problem! We have trained staff members who can help with medication management. If you could benefit from this kind of service, just let the staff at the community know and they can help you out.
