We partner with each resident to create a personalized plan, tailored for their specific needs. This process is unique to Brookdale Senior Living and allows us to base service fees on need. Not only does this allow us to deliver quality service and care, but also ensures seniors only pay for the services they want and need.
Located on Old Centre Road, our community is in a quaint area of town, nestled next to The Moors Golf Club and near the YMCA. We are only 20 minutes away from Kalamazoo, and our convenient location close to major thoroughfares like US-131 and Oakland Drive allows travel to and from our community to be easier and quicker.
When you walk into Brookdale Portage, there’s a sense of relaxation that floods over you. From the type of furnishings to the private apartments to the cozy environment, we’ve created a home-like atmosphere that our residents love living at.
As a resident, you’ll be able to craft the lifestyle that you want. We offer apartment suites in a variety of sizes and styles, so you can find the one that fits your particular tastes. Whichever one you choose, all of our apartments come equipped with some excellent amenities such as wall-to-wall carpeting and a walk-in shower. You’ll be able to personalized the space by setting up family pictures or mementos.
You’ll also be able to choose how you spend your free time. Our community has regularly planned activities, events and outings. All of our programs are designed with our residents’ interests in mind, and we welcome input from them about the scheduled activities. Many of our seniors like to enjoy a card game in our recreation and activity room, socialize in our tea room, or enjoy a good book in the outdoor courtyard.
When you become a resident at Brookdale Portage, you’ll be able to enjoy a personalized assisted living experience. From the custom care plans we offer to the way our staff individually cares for each senior, you’ll get a lifestyle tailored to you.
Our trained staff is there to assist residents with personal needs, such as bathing or showering, selection of clothing, dressing assistance, grooming, hygiene, mobility and transferring and dining assistance in the privacy of your suite/apartment.
But assistance can come in many forms and variations, and sometimes it can become more overbearing than helpful. With our years of experience, we understand the right balance of care to make you feel supported and cared for, while also retaining your independence and freedom. Our goal is to provide you with the confidence and assurance to tackle each day successfully.
The way we accomplish this is by working with you to understand your needs first. We don’t try to push a care plan on you. Instead, we work with you as partners to figure out the level of assistance you need. Each personalized plan is based upon the amount of time it takes to provide quality service, meaning seniors only pay for they need and want.
Many seniors see our staff as extended family members, who are there with a helping hand providing gentle assistance with respect for your dignity and independence.
