St. Augustine has a wonderful and comfortable feel the minute you walk in our door. We offer a variety of apartment choices for individual needs and privacy. From efficiency Studios to large One-Bedrooms, we encourage our residents to live independently, creating a comfortable and familiar space they can call home.
Group common areas include our lovely dining room, lounges, a spacious family room and ice cream parlor, giving residents and their loved ones the opportunity to socialize. Seniors can enjoy their retirement without the worry of laundry, housekeeping and preparing meals.
Our community offers so many opportunities to engage in social interactions. An exciting array of social, educational and cultural programs encourages exploring new interests, as well as sharing past favorites with new friends. We offer meaningful activities that enrich your life while embracing your independence.
We love taking residents for exciting day excursions to our local winery, state parks and historic sites such as the St. Augustine Lighthouse. The nature trail at here at Brookdale leads to the Publix shopping center, restaurants, bookstores, banks, the post office and several other unique shops right around the corner.
Make sure to ask our Life Enrichment Director about the unforgettable Marilyn Monroe performances or the monthly auction where you bid on prizes. We encourage you to take part in community events or activities at your own pace. Each one of our residents offers something special to our senior living community, and we strive to tailor activities that represent individual interests and talents.
The dining experience is fundamental to the health and wellness of our residents. Our Dining Services Director works closely with our Resident Care Director in developing delicious and nutritional meals that meet individual dietary needs. Walk into our “restaurant” and be pampered by a dining staff who caters to your preferences.
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 that they can more easily distinguish their food. We also provide easy-to-eat snacks between meals, helping to ensure these residents get the nutrition and calorie count they need.

Levels of Care
As the population ages, more people are discovering assisted 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.
Brookdale St. Augustine offers two levels of care:
- Assisted Living provides residents personal assistance and support with the 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.
we offer Assisted Living care so you’ll be prepared, if or when you need more assistance. It all begins with a personal service assessment. We take the time to listen to our residents, so we can understand their needs; then we establish clinical, dining and program support that works for them in a meaningful way.
We partner with our residents, recognizing their individual needs and preferences, and adjust services to meet their changing needs. So whether it’s a unique snack, the celebration of a favorite season or a lifelong interest, we value the privilege of knowing our residents and building relationships with them to create a truly personalized living experience.
With our exclusive personal service system, you can live your life the way you want with the right care at the right time, delivered by the right people. Through years of experience serving seniors, we have developed a process that allows us to customize personal care plans for our Assisted Living residents. Your customized care plan means you only pay for the services you need and want, giving you the flexibility to change your plan.

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.
