Everyone’s situation is different, but our community is here to help you find quality care, genuine relationships and time to enjoy your retirement.

Here are some ways we can support you throughout your day:

Personal Assistance
We understand how to offer the right balance of care so you feel supported and cared for while retaining your independence and freedom. Our trained staff is here to assist you with personal needs, such as bathing or showering, clothing selection, grooming and medication management so you have the confidence and assurance to tackle each day successfully. We can work with you to create a customized service plan that focuses only on what you need, and as your needs change, we can change with them.

Health and Wellness
Interested in one of our B-Fit exercise classes or yoga and meditation? Or maybe you want a mental fitness workout with Flex Your Brain trivia, or to stimulate your mind with Conversations in Aging. At Brookdale Portage, your well-being is at the core of everything we do. We offer life-enriching programs that are fun, engaging and help you stay mentally and physically fit. And the relationships you make along the way can lead to connections that help you continue to live a meaningful, engaged life.

Lifestyle Services
To help you live your best life, we offer convenient amenities including a hair salon, library, postal services and a private dining room for special get-togethers with your family and friends. Enjoy quiet, reflective moments along our walking paths or in our outdoor courtyard and gardens. And many residents enjoy card games in our recreation and activity room, socializing in our tea room or getting together to knit. But what really puts life into our community is the social connections you can make.

Home-Like Environment
They say there’s no place like home, and at Brookdale Portage, we feel the same way. Our floor plans offer a variety of sizes and styles, and all feature large, light-filled windows. You can find the one that suits your particular needs and furnish it to fit your distinct, individual taste. Bring your family photos, special decor and other mementos to create a cozy home as special and unique as you. And we’re pet-friendly, so we welcome your four-legged family member if you’d like to bring one along.


Personalized Assisted Living Care

We’re here to help with the little things like bathing, dressing and mobility, so you can make happy hour with friends, attend a poetry reading or enjoy a round of bingo. We can also help coordinate your care with outside care providers, and even handle chores like laundry, cooking and cleaning. Our care team is ready and able to help you live well and age 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 our communities are pet-friendly. Be sure to check with your individual community before you arrive in case there are weight or breed restrictions. Explore our Pets page for more information on pet-friendly living.

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.
