Exceptional Senior Living

Located in the quaint coastal town of Sarasota, Florida, Brookdale Palmer Ranch is just a short drive from the white sand beaches of the Gulf. Our community is a continuing care retirement community, or CCRC, which means you can have the lifestyle you want, plus care if you need it with assisted living, memory care and skilled nursing all on one campus. And we’re a rental CCRC. That means you’ll pay a monthly rental fee, plus monthly fees based on the level of care and services you need.

Our distinctive amenities, attentive service and spacious private apartment homes provide you with upscale comfort in a place where you’re not just aging well but living well. Plus, you have the peace of mind knowing our staff is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to be alerted to an emergency. It’s worry-free living at its best, with most utilities and maintenance included.

Personal Assistance
Redefine your independence with the care you need when you need it. With assisted living, we can help you with the little things—like simple housekeeping and meals—and more involved activities, such as bathing, getting dressed and managing medications. And our care associates can help you coordinate with outside care providers. So now you can spend more time enjoying activities with friends or reigniting some of your old passions. We also provide scheduled transportation services to local shopping spots and doctor’s appointments.

Health and Wellness
We take a holistic approach to your wellness by focusing on six dimensions (intellectual, purposeful, social, physical, spiritual, and positive emotion) to help keep you growing. Your brain has an immense capacity for growth. Our Brain Fit program is a holistic approach to brain health with classes like Flex Your Brain that give you a mental fitness workout every week. You can also enjoy fun, stimulating and social exercise experiences with our B-Fit fitness program and walking club.

Lifestyle Services
Our calendar of activities isn’t just a list of things to do. We take time to get to know you, so that community activities reflect your interests with purposeful and thoughtful programming. Connect with new friends and live your best life every day with cooking demos, shopping trips, movie nights and card games—these are just a few of the fun activities you can enjoy. We even have themed happy hours with appetizers and an open bar. And while you’re busy living life to the fullest, we can take care of the chores.

Home-Like Environment
When you’re here, you’re home. Our community is warm and inviting, with plenty of coastal charm. With several floor plan options, you’ll be able to find just the right apartment to fit your style. And you’ll have plenty of room when the grandkids visit. With big windows, a kitchenette and lots of natural light, some apartments even have a garden view. Along with our care options, you can have peace of mind knowing there is staff available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to be alerted to an emergency.

Personalized Assisted Living Care

As we get older, sometimes we need a little extra help, and that’s ok. Assisted living is designed for seniors who need a little more day-to-day assistance. Need an extra hand with monitoring special health needs or dressing? We’ve got that covered. Or maybe you just need assistance getting to the dining room after your afternoon bingo game. Our care team is ready and able to help you live your life well.

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.
