Nestled on more than 15 picturesque, wooded acres in Durham, New Hampshire, Brookdale Spruce Wood will feel like home from the moment you walk through the front door. We provide care for seniors seeking independent and assisted living as well as memory care services. With peace of mind knowing your address likely won’t have to change if your circumstances do, you’re free to sit back, relax and enjoy a wonderful life.
We are located just two short miles from the University of New Hampshire and downtown Durham, which means you are only a hop, skip and a jump away from some of the best restaurants, shops, cultural centers, museums and boat cruises the region has to offer. You can easily join one of our excursion groups and hit the seacoast, lakes or breathtaking mountains. Or you can stay on campus and enjoy a long list of luxury amenities and services. No matter how you spend your days, you can enjoy fewer worries and more life with staff available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to be alerted to an emergency.
Enjoy carefree living and leave the responsibility of home maintenance behind. You'll have the comforts of home with the added benefits of a warm and caring staff.
Brookdale caregivers are available to provide assistance with daily living, balancing independence with assistance while delivering service with compassion, understanding, and respect.
Our memory care program is deeply rooted in a person-centered approach. We offer the necessary resources and nurturing staff to care for those with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.
ActivitiesPerhaps you want to soak up the early morning sunshine as you tend to your favorite plants in the garden, meet your friends for an afternoon social or gather with your fellow neighbors for a B-Fit exercise class—these are just a few examples of the fun and engaging programs you can enjoy as an independent living or assisted living resident. Our memory care residents enjoy a gentle daily structure of programs tailored to help preserve their abilities and encourage the use of their current skills, including mental workouts, chair yoga, sing-alongs, and arts and crafts.
DiningWith our restaurant-style dining, have access to seasonal, chef-prepared meals that leave you counting down the minutes until it’s time to eat again. Best of all, we take care of the dishes! You can even offer up suggestions or feedback during our monthly menu chats. Our memory care residents typically sit down to eat at the same time and in the same seat to avoid unnecessary stress or confusion while promoting as much independence as possible. We also offer dementia-friendly menus and personalized dining assistance for those who need a little help during mealtimes.
