Nestled in a lovely residential neighborhood, our vibrant community is in the heart of Orange Park, near I-295 and Blanding Boulevard, and just 15 miles south of downtown Jacksonville.
Our beautiful community is impeccably maintained, providing all of the comforts of home, with the security of loving and supportive care. We are convenient to Orange Park Medical Center and skilled nursing and rehabilitation services, if ever needed.
We offer four apartment styles to meet your needs and preferences. Assisted Living residents have 54 units and 10 residences are in our memory care neighborhood. Each offers a handicapped accessible bathroom, spacious living area and large windows with lovely views of our exterior courtyard and duck pond. Residents are welcome to bring their own refrigerator and microwave, as well as their own furniture, if they choose. They can also ask us to paint the walls a specific color and personalize their space as they wish.
Our library is a favorite place for relaxation and conversation, offering many books, a television and views of our pond. There is also a spacious sitting-area, main dining room and a television room, where movie nights are held each week.
The activities room includes a kitchen area and several tables, where residents often join together to play games or do crossword puzzles, and we have an in-house beauty salon and barber shop for added convenience. Our community offers two covered patios with grills, for residents and their families to enjoy cook-outs.
The Orange Park community ensures each resident maintains their privacy, dignity and independence, while offering opportunities to engage in social interactions. An exciting array of social, educational and cultural programs encourages exploring new interests, as well as sharing past favorites with new friends.
In addition, we offer a wide range of activities including parties, hobbies, exercise programs, continuing education classes, outside entertainment and off-site excursions such as a ballgame to see the Jacksonville Suns, the Oak Leaf Town Center and picnics or walks in Kingsley Park. We take residents out for lunch to Sam’s Saint John Seafood, the Olive Garden or the Ale House. Of course, if residents want to try something entirely new, we let them decide.
Substantial investments in Brookdale’s culinary program and staffing, allow us to provide mealtime experiences that set our communities apart from the competition. From our Culinary Arts Training for chefs, to our select seasonings and bakery programs, we have 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 support 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 that 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 assisted senior 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 Orange Park offers two levels of care:
We offer Assisted Living care so you’ll be prepared, if or when you need more assistance. It all begins with a personal service assessment. We take the time to listen to our residents, so we can understand their needs. Then we establish clinical, dining and program support that works for them in a meaningful way.
We partner with our residents, recognizing their individual needs and preferences, and adjust services to meet their changing needs. So whether it’s a unique snack, the celebration of a favorite season or a lifelong interest, we value the privilege of knowing our residents and building relationships with them to create a truly personalized living experience.
With our exclusive personal service system, you can live your life the way you want with the right care at the right time, delivered by the right people. Through years of experience serving seniors, we have developed a process that allows us to customize personal care plans for our Assisted Living residents. Your customized care plan means you only pay for the services you need and want, giving you the flexibility to change your plan.
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 memory loss.
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.
Residents can feel safe knowing some of the state’s best medical facilities are all within an easy drive. The Westin Group provides visiting physicians, rehabilitation and home health partners offering physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and additional medical services, which allow you to remain in your Assisted Living or Memory Care apartment and receive the exact services you need.
The longevity of qualified and nurturing caregivers, medical assistants and executive management contribute to the happiness of our residents and their families. Our staff is focused on exceeding your every expectation. The services we offer, combined with our partnerships to reputable healthcare professionals, give you the security to live life as you please.
