Our care services offer a helping hand to residents who need varying levels of assistance. We understand that each person has specific needs, and your care needs may differ from someone else. Because we provide three levels of care, we can serve you no matter what your needs are.
Life at Brookdale Spruce Wood
Our community offers a comfortable home-like atmosphere with senior apartments available in a variety of styles: studio, one- and two-bedroom private units. Our senior apartments are spacious and come with a long list of amenities that include ample closet space, wall-to-wall carpeting, and full kitchens/kitchenettes. Common areas at our community are warm and inviting and include a library, beauty salon, wellness room, activities room, courtyard, patio and restaurant style dining room.
Plenty of Entertainment Options
Our calendar is ever changing and always full of activities and events throughout the day. Whether the activities are held internally or outside of the building, there is something for every resident’s taste. Residents may spend the morning in an exercise class, in a book club, playing Wii or socializing over coffee.
Afternoons may be filled with activities such as musical entertainment, manicures, trivia, bingo, arts and crafts and cocktail hours to name a few. In the evenings, we may show a movie, or residents can head to the library to unwind, read a book or catch up with friends.
Several times a month a special luncheon or lunch trip to local restaurants is offered in addition to regularly scheduled meals. Holidays and birthdays are treated as major events here at our community. Each month a birthday celebration takes place in the Great Room with a musical entertainer and cake and ice cream to recognize resident birthdays for that month.

Offering three different levels of care, Brookdale Spruce Wood has the resources available to assist you in whatever way you need. If during your stay with us your needs change, we can adjust to provide the appropriate level of care.
When you live alone or with a partner, there are so many daily tasks that you have to be in charge of. From cooking regularly to doing the laundry to tending to the yard, all of these tasks can just be burdensome. Plus, they take up time you could be doing other things — spending time with friends and family, enjoying old hobbies or discovering new ones, and playing fun games.
At Brookdale Spruce Wood, we take care of these daily tasks for you. No more having to drive to the grocery store and plan out meals. Instead, you’ll be able to sit down at our fine dining room and be served delicious meals from an excellent chef. The only time you’ll need to cook is when you want to. We’ll take care of the tasks you don’t want to so you can enjoy your independence fully.
Sometimes you may need a little extra assistance with daily tasks, such as bathing, getting dressed or getting to and from places. But the last thing you want is for a community to come in and control your world — ordering you around and dictating what you can and can’t do. This is not the case with Brookdale Spruce Wood.
We work with you, as a partner. Our aim is to provide you with the most amount of independence possible to live a safe and healthy lifestyle. We will sit down with you during a personal service assessment and listen to you. We don’t push a one-size-fits-all Assisted Living care plan on you. Instead, we will work together to create a custom and personal plan that you are comfortable with.
Our staff takes a person-centered approach to our Memory Care residents. We view all residents as individuals, and we take time to get to know each one of our seniors. Their likes, dislikes, interests, family history, and much more. We believe this personalization allows us to care for our seniors with a gentle hand and kind heart. Something we strive to do everyday.
Our goal is to help residents maintain their abilities and encourage the use of their current skills. And we do all of this while respecting our residents and treating them with the upmost dignity. To help our residents be successful, we offer a gentle daily structure where residents enjoy at least six programs daily. The programs can vary but all are designed to provide daily moments of success for our seniors.
A few examples of programs are:
- Dementia-Friendly Menus that provide diverse offerings designed to help prevent weight-loss. Selections are easy to manage, familiar and appealing to the senses.
- Individualized Dining Assistance includes evaluating each resident to determine the level of prompting assistance needed to preserve their use of utensils as long as possible.
- The Supportive Dining Environment, which incorporates small dining rooms with consistent seating to support the challenges of those with dementia, this encourages familiarity and socialization while supporting the needs of the residents through the assignment of resident care assistants. Music, centerpieces, warm, scented wash towels and fresh linens enhance the dining experience.
