Exceptional Senior Living

You’re looking for more than a community that checks off most of your boxes. You’re looking for the right fit, a community of friends that feels like your tribe. Brookdale Riverwalk in Bakersfield, California, is a CCRC (continuing care retirement community), which means you’ll have independent living, assisted living, memory care, and skilled nursing all on one campus. And if you or your spouse need more care later, you can have the lifestyle you want and care to meet your needs.

Here you have the freedom to experiment with new hobbies, reignite your sense of purpose and enjoy new experiences and connections with interesting new friends. Maybe you’ll want to take a creative writing class or check out a gourmet cooking class. And with studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments and villas, you’ll find just the home that fits your style. Plus, you can have peace of mind knowing our staff is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to be alerted to an emergency.

Luxury Retirement Living

Are you ready for fewer chores and more adventures? Then Brookdale Riverwalk could be the right senior living community for you. From our campus, you can enjoy what Bakersfield has to offer. You could spend the day at Buck Owens’ Crystal Palace or visit the Bakersfield Museum of Art. There’s also the California Living Museum (CALM), California's premier native zoo and garden. And nature lovers can take advantage of being near the Sierra Nevada foothills for plenty of outdoor adventures like fishing, hiking and biking. Brookdale Riverwalk is centrally located near hospitals, physicians, shopping, restaurants and the Northwest Parkway. No matter what area of town you are in, we are conveniently located for you!

At Brookdale Riverwalk, we can take care of the chores so you can focus on the fun. With services like housekeeping, laundry and dining covered, you’ll have more time to do what you want to do. We want you to have what you need to feel right at home. That’s why we’ve thought of the little extra touches that make our community feel like a vacation with your favorite friends. Best of all, with multiple levels of care, you will likely be able to live in the same community, even if your needs change over time.
