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.

Upscale Neighborhood Near the Coast

Located in the exclusive Palmer Ranch neighborhood in Sarasota, Florida, Brookdale Palmer Ranch, a continuing care retirement community (CCRC), has the care you need to successfully age in place. You'll have the fun, maintenance-free lifestyle you want and care to meet your needs. You are just minutes from some of the best shopping and dining in the area. But don’t let Sarasota’s small-town charm fool you; this city has a sophisticated side, too, with the Sarasota Art Museum, the Sarasota Opera, and even the Circus Arts Conservatory. 

You can make yourself at home here with several spacious floor plans to choose from. Our apartment homes have great garden views, and we’re a pet-friendly community, so you can bring your furry friend with you. You’ll also find great care here, with associates dedicated to helping you enhance your health, wellness and lifestyle through programs and services uniquely tailored to you. That means fewer worries, less stress, and more options for you to live your best life.

Upsize Your Possibilities

With attractions like the Mote Marine Laboratory and Aquarium and the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens just a short drive from campus, you’ll find plenty to do and see here in Sarasota, and you don’t have to drive if you don’t want to. Just ask the front desk about our scheduled transportation services. For beach lovers, this town has several beaches for you to explore, and don’t forget all the great golf courses, too! Our campus is adjacent to the TPC Prestancia, with 36 holes of world-class golf.

Being out on the town is great, but the real action is back on campus with vacation-style amenities. You’ll enjoy chic common living areas and an elegant dining room. Spend time with interesting neighbors over a cup of coffee in the library. And if you want to join friends for a cocktail, you can visit our pub on campus. We even collaborate with Manatee School of the Arts for our visual arts program to mimic a night out at a concert.

Staying in style is even easier now when you book your next hair appointment at our on-site beauty salon. If you need a few last-minute supplies, shop our general store. Everything we offer is to help you feel right at home. So what are you waiting for? You’ve earned this lifestyle.

More Adventures, Fewer Worries

Traditionally, you are offered a list of calendar activity options, but here we start with getting to know you. We believe that relationships lead to connections that help you continue to live a meaningful, engaged life. Whether through engaging socially in a group, an individual purposeful pursuit, or meeting a new best friend, it’s all about the connections. You can connect with others through a mix of opportunities like card and table games, cooking demonstrations, devotional services, Wii bowling, happy hours, live music, and excursions to local shopping, dining and attractions. We also balance our offerings to support the six dimensions of Optimum Life®, including standard evidence-based programs like B-Fit, Brain Fit, The Ageless Spirit, Resident Technology and Optimum Life Health Talks.

Our memory care residents have an exciting calendar of events, too. On any given day, you’ll see them dancing, socializing at get-togethers and enjoying karaoke. Or maybe you’ll find them playing cards, getting coffee with a friend or attending movie nights. Each of these activities is part of a carefully designed care program to help your loved one live their best life.
