Northdale offers a friendly, home-like environment, which you feel as soon as you enter our front door. Cheerful smiles from our caring, professional staff greet you everyday, and a peaceful setting creates a wonderful living environment for residents.
We have two landscaped outdoor courtyards, a sun room, private dining and several comfortable living room areas. Our accommodations consist of generously-sized studio apartments, many with garden views.
Our residents come from all areas and all walks of life, and their ages range from early-sixties to late-nineties. We are an “all inclusive” community with housekeeping, dining and activities provided in the monthly rental charges.
Residents enjoy the services of a professional hairdresser and a barbershop in the building, as well as mobile grooming services for our pets. Our staff takes pride in respecting the privacy and individuality of each person, while at the same time creating a real sense of community.
An array of social, educational and cultural programs encourages residents to rekindle their past interests and explore new ones with friends and neighbors. Brookdale offers many planned activities each week and loves taking our seniors for day excursions such as visits to local shops and restaurants, the Tampa Museum, the Fine Arts Museum, Salvador Dali and Dale Chiluly collections, The Straz Theatre for the Performing Arts, Seminole Hard Rock Casino and our beautiful beaches. All activities are created around the passions, hobbies and talents of each resident.
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.
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.

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 staff members to identify any unmet needs and be a part of the solution.
Senior Home Care provides therapy, nursing and related services to our residents seven days per week, right here in our building. Affiliated physicians are on hand weekly to see patients, and a variety of specialists visit our community regularly to ensure the continued good health of our seniors. We are consistently adding to our group of enthusiastic employees who love working with older adults.
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, 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.
Northdale is a proud participant and sponsor of the yearly Alzheimer’s Walk, and we host a variety of fundraising events for this worthwhile cause, partnering with world-renowned USF Center for Alzheimer Research. We have a monthly schedule of events planned for both our residents and the local community and host focus groups for Alzheimer’s families, monthly health specialty clinics and professionals speaking about veterans benefits, crime prevention and behavior and communication techniques.
