We are proud to say that Brookdale South Lee Buford is one of the premier retirement communities in the state and is truly unique, as we offer both the comfort that only a smaller community can bring, coupled with exceptional quality that sets us apart from all other senior living experiences. Our property offers scenic wooded views and local attractions like Lake Lanier, Bogan Park, the Chattahoochee River and many shopping and restaurant options.
Brookdale has three separate dining rooms, an in-house physical therapy room, a beautiful private library, old-time ice-cream parlor, exclusive cottage clubhouse, golf-cart path, walking paths, a beauty shop (with our own barber & stylist), expansive living room, wicker sunroom and a giant beautiful front porch lined with comfortable chairs.
Whether our residents are watching the Super Bowl on the big screen television or enjoying piano music by the fireplace in the living room, we offer almost everything.
Activities to Engage Your Interests
Two shuttles provide transportation for our residents and we are always on the go. Our residents make routine trips to local shopping attractions such as the grocery, Wal-Mart and The Mall of Georgia, as well as their regular appointments or to see local sites. A recent trip to Harrah’s Cherokee Casino was a big hit for everyone.
If you are a sports fan, Buford is the place to be. We have the Triple A Major League team for the Atlanta Braves, right in our own back yard and our local hockey favorites, the Gwinnett Gladiators. For football fans, Buford High is the reigning four-time State Champions. Since we are such a short distance to all the action in Atlanta, our residents have the option for professional basketball, baseball and football teams as well.
Meals at Brookdale are incredible. For seniors, meal time is the most important activity in their day. It can be what fuels and drives satisfaction, and for our community, this is truly the feather in our cap.
We try to incorporate the residents recipes as much as possible and always have an extensive alternative menu to choose from. You can be assured that you and your family will receive the very best meal choices and selections available. There are a number of private dining options and several choices for birthday parties or anniversary dinners, here in one of our dining venues. The next time you are at our community, ask for a copy of our extensive catering menu and you will see what the buzz is all about.

As the population ages, more people are discovering senior living and the peace of mind we offer. 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. After all, the Golden years should be enjoyable, and our community strives to make this possible.
Brookdale South Lee Buford offers three levels of care:
- Independent Living promotes a rewarding lifestyle for independent seniors. We provide vacation-style amenities and programs, allowing you the freedom to live a more relaxed and comfortable lifestyle. We enable seniors to trade in the responsibilities of home maintenance for the sophisticated comfort of a well-deserved retirement, with activities and wellness opportunities in an engaging environment.
- Personal Care 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 gently daily structure is provided to help maintain and encourage current skills.
More About Memory Care
Our Memory Care program offers a secure environment 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. The whole-community philosophy is the key that empowers our staff to identify any unmet needs, and be a part of a solution.
Strong, Professional Relationships
When your family chooses Brookdale South Lee Buford, they are presented with several options for on-site physician visits and physical therapy/occupational therapy. We can connect you with options for gerontologists, dentists, dermatologists, podiatrists, geriatric psychologists, optometrists and general practitioners who we have excellent relationships with, and who provide care and visits for our residents on site.
The days of “house-calls” from local doctors have returned, and getting the best possible care to your loved one is of the utmost importance. We are connected to the Gwinnett Chamber of Commerce, the Buford Business Alliance, Georgia ALFA, the Gwinnett Senior Providers Network and a host of others. Our partnerships with these local professionals allows us the opportunity to bring the best possible care and services to our families, at the very best rate.
Professional and Caring Staff
Brookdale’s staff are some of the most loving individuals and truly have a heart and passion for working with seniors. We offer an excellent resident-to-caregiver ratio. Every member of our team has undergone extensive training, and attends continuing education classes. We find the perfect fit for each of our staff, and match the personalities of residents with our caregivers, so they will get the very best quality of life and care.
