Brookdale Phillippi Creek is currently closed for renovations. Join us Wednesdays for an Open House event to tour the new community building, opening November 2016.
With a continuum of care, residents have the security of knowing they can remain here, in their home, without having to relocate and separate from their familiar surroundings and friendships, should their needs change over time. Our emphasis is on providing you with numerous services, while helping you maintain your independence and health.
We are located on Swift Road, just north of Clark Road and Stickney Point, in a quiet residential area near Siesta Key Beach. Our upscale property offers 96 apartments on two floors, with a friendly, home-like environment you feel as soon as you enter our front door. With many planned activities and dining services, there are numerous opportunities to make new friends, right here in your home.
Phillippi Creek’s beautiful residence offers a variety of activities and social spaces such as our chapel, library, game room, activity room, outdoor garden and gazebo and ice cream parlor to socialize with friends and family. Each day is about living life to the fullest and letting us take care of all the mundane daily chores. Cheerful smiles from our caring, professional staff greet you everyday, and a peaceful setting creates a wonderful living environment for residents.
At Brookdale, we rely on our seniors to create their planned activities, and the calendar is enhanced monthly by new events and ideas. Competitive bowling matches, musical events, word games and armchair travels are examples of ways social, physical, mental, spiritual, cultural and creative activities are blended. Live entertainment, off-site excursions, lunch bunch outings and a myriad of cultural activities are always available.
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.
Brookdale Phillippi Creek offers two levels of 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.
Phillippi Creek strives to visit with area hospitals, skilled nursing facilities, rehabilitation centers, area physicians and other key support professionals to enhance daily working relationships. We also provide a rapid response with professionals to meet the needs of potential and current residents. Our goal is to assure a continuum of care for our residents.
We are proud of the longevity of staff members who have been serving our residents for a number of years. Our management team is comprised of professionals representing many years of expertise in senior care. We are selective when choosing staff to join our team, and only those with a caring heart are accepted into our family.
Each year, we participate in the Alzheimer’s walk. We also host professional groups, provide seminars for residents, professionals and the community, and we hold appreciation breakfasts for groups and organizations that provide assistance to our residents throughout the year. In addition to holding seminars and hosting professional meetings, we encourage various opportunities for the community to view us as a resource, and we are well known for our tantalizing buffets, appetizers, special events and hospitality.
