As a community that provides assisted living and memory care services, our residents have the security of knowing they won’t have to relocate and separate from their familiar surroundings and friendships should their needs change over time. It’s always the right amount of care you need, when you need it.
The lifestyle at Brookdale offers everything you need to get the very best out of life, and we do it all in a family-centered environment where loved ones are encouraged to be as involved as possible.
Our location stands out with large, impressive trees welcoming you to our peaceful setting, with beautifully groomed landscaping leading you right up to our inviting front doors. In the serene Piper Glen neighborhood, you’ll feel welcomed the minute you arrive, and will begin to feel at home as soon as you step in the door.
Cozy living rooms, elegant dining rooms and a warm and friendly kitchen naturally draw people together to tell stories, laugh and enjoy leisurely afternoons.
In your private apartment, you’ll have a stylish and well-kept space, just waiting for you to fill it with your favorite furniture pieces and cherished possessions. You’ll make it all your own, and create a place that’s uniquely you, with all the comforts of home.
Whether reading a book from the selection in our library, taking a stroll along the beautifully maintained walking paths, playing a game of cards or joining in an arts and crafts project, there are always opportunities awaiting you.
Integral to life at Brookdale are the programs, outings and opportunities we offer. Our philosophy is to incorporate not only individual interests, but opportunities that allow residents to make meaningful contributions to each other and the community on a regular basis. An array of social, educational and cultural programs encourages each resident to rekindle their past interests and explore new ones with friends and neighbors.
We love taking our seniors out to local restaurants and unique shops and making exciting day excursions. Favorite attractions include visiting the Nascar Hall of Fame, Blumenthal Performing Arts Center, Carolinas Aviation Museum and the McDowell Nature Center and Preserve. Every resident offers something special to our senior living community, and we strive to tailor activities that represent their individual interests, hobbies and talents.
Optimum Life is a bold initiative that defines the way we live. By balancing six key dimensions of wellness with purpose, emotional, physical, social, spiritual and intellectual fulfillment, Optimum Life helps you live at your peak level within a lifestyle that promotes health and wholeness. Intended as a journey of self-examination and discovery, it includes services, features and benefits that allow each resident to reach these goals, regardless of real or perceived limitations.
During mealtimes, you can expect delightful entree selections, prepared by our professional chef and catered to the tastes and preferences of our residents. Tried and true recipes combined with the freshest ingredients create a culinary experience you’ll look forward to each day. And don’t forget about the savory snacks and delectable desserts for when you feel like having a treat.
We continue to meet the nutritional needs of residents with dining choices that offer satisfying entrees while supporting 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 food is easily distinguishable and looks and feels familiar. We also provide easy-to-eat snacks between meals, helping to ensure these residents get the nutrition and calorie count they need.
Residents can feel safe knowing some of the state’s best medical facilities are all within an easy drive. We nurture strong relationships with area hospitals, skilled nursing and rehabilitation centers allowing us to provide a seamless continuum of care for our residents. All of the services we provide are customized to personal and unique needs by creating a way of life that enriches the lives of others through compassion, respect, excellence and integrity.
Brookdale’s family values set us apart from any other senior living community. The true measure of our success is evident when watching the interactions of our staff and residents. We have very close relationships with each person and their family. South Charlotte is proud of the longevity of qualified and nurturing caregivers, medical assistants and executive management, and our personalized approach encourages each person to continue to live as they please, with the added support our staff delivers.
We provide peace of mind and a comfortable lifestyle for you or your loved one. 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 South Charlotte offers two levels of care:
Assisted living provides personal assistance and support with daily activities and services needed, such as medication management, meals, bathing and dressing, as well as amenities for housekeeping and linen services, transportation and recreations. Our individualized care plans provide an ideal blend of convenience and support, with respect for personal preferences.
Memory care was created over 25 years ago and continually embraces current research in Alzheimer’s and dementia care, coupled with the experience of caring for thousands of people with dementia. Associates help residents create daily moments of success, offering opportunities for them to experience a sense of purpose and meaning. A gentle daily structure is provided to help maintain and encourage current skills.
With our memory care residents, we refer to the Clare Bridge program which strives to create secure environments 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.
By individually customizing care, we help ease residents through life transitions. Plus, Brookdale’s more than 30 years of experience allows us to develop unique clinical capabilities that identify and respond to resident needs.
