Personal Assistance
Our assisted living program prioritizes independence, helping you out with a wide range of daily tasks like dressing, managing medications, mobility, and much, much more, all so that you can prioritize your lifestyle. Because assisted living is about reclaiming the relaxed, vibrant retirement lifestyle you used to imagine. Life here means fewer worries, more options for living well, in a community that feels just like home sweet home. That’s what we like to call redefined independence.

Health and Wellness
We focus on empowering you to live the life you want, and that includes health and wellness goals, too. Whether you want to focus on relaxation and breathing, cardio, strength or flexibility, our B-Fit exercise program is designed to give you a fun, stimulating and social fitness experience. You can also get a weekly mental fitness workout with our Flex Your Brain sessions. And to support your sense of adventure, we have scheduled transportation services that can take you out shopping and to your favorite lunch spots.

Lifestyle Services
However you choose to spend your days, you won’t have to look too hard to find someone to spend them with. Our community is full of vibrant, welcoming seniors just like you who are also finding their best way to live well. You’ll have convenient amenities like an on-site pharmacy, whirlpool, porch and postal services available to you. And because we can handle the cooking and other household chores, you can have more time than ever to enjoy them all with your neighbors.

Home-Like Environment
Our community combines luxurious accommodations with a warm, right-at-home feeling. From day one, when you move in your favorite family photos, keepsakes, and mementos, we think our space will start to feel like your place. You’ll have three different floor plans to choose from, each customizable to your own personal decorating preference. You’ll also have exceptional community areas to enjoy, like our on-site beauty parlor, perfect for an afternoon of pampering, or our fireside living room, a beautiful spot to enjoy some quiet time with your favorite book.

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.
