What Our Assisted Living Community Can Offer You
Do you wish you had more time in the day for your family, friends or hobbies rather than worrying about an endless to-do list? Or maybe you’ve started to notice you could use a little help getting around. Everyone’s situation is different, but our community is here to help you find quality care, genuine relationships and time to enjoy your retirement.
Here are some ways we can support you throughout your day:
Because assisted living is not one-size-fits-all, we work together with you, your family and your healthcare providers to create a personalized service plan that meets your specific needs. This means you only pay for the services you really need. Our kind and compassionate staff will help you with daily tasks, from personal grooming and managing medications to mobility and coordinating with outside healthcare providers. We also provide scheduled transportation services to local shopping spots and doctor’s appointments.
Health and Wellness
We want to help you stay healthy, so we have a therapy room and fitness center, plus games and exercises to strengthen your body and brain. Our B-Fit exercise program is designed to give you a fun, social fitness experience. We also want to encourage your sense of adventure, so we schedule excursions to nearby restaurants, shops and attractions. With a social calendar full of engaging activities, classes and outings, you’ll always find something interesting to do—and someone to share it with.
Our community is built from the ground up for one thing: you. From your apartment to our large, carefully decorated community living room, each of our spaces is built to maximize that home sweet home feeling. You’ll find natural light throughout and unique finishing details, like our wood floors in our dining room and rocking chairs on our outdoor patio. You also have convenient amenities to go with the fantastic architecture. It’s all designed to allow you to build your best life.
You’ll have five floor plans to choose from when you move in, including companion suites. And that’s just the beginning of your options. While you’re here, you’ll have to choose how to spend your days, and you have choices. Along with the long list of activities, you’ll also have a wellness center, courtyard and garden, a stocked library, walking paths, and a fireside living room, each one a great place for some quiet time on your own or to meet with your new social circle.
Personalized Assisted Living Care
Not all assisted living is created equal. At Brookdale Union, you’ll get to leave behind cooking, chores, home maintenance, and the stress that often comes with living at home. In their place, you get options for exploring exciting things to do and a whole community full of exciting people to do them with. And when you need a little help with daily activities like dressing, hygiene, managing medication, or monitoring special health needs, we’ll be there. But you’ll also get fun-filled activities, great dining and convenient amenities to help you live your best life. That means fewer worries, less stress, and more options for you to live your life well.

Assisted living communities are designed for seniors who need a little extra help with activities like managing medication, bathing and dressing. Residents usually have their own apartment that they can decorate as they wish and have access to community amenities like dining programs, social activities and more.
Skilled nursing communities are supportive environments that provide healthcare resources like physical, occupational and speech therapy. At Brookdale, our skilled nursing team provides round-the-clock nursing care seven days a week.
It’s okay if you don’t know which level of care you or your loved one needs. Our assisted living communities can do an assessment to determine the right amount of care for you.
Knowing when the time is right can be a little tricky since everyone’s circumstances are a little different. Generally speaking, assisted living is a great option for seniors who could benefit from assistance with the daily tasks of life, like personal grooming or managing medication. Community life is also ideal for seniors who want to live in a place that provides social activities with people in their same stage of life.
The cost of assisted living varies widely depending on where you live, the type of apartment you choose and the level of care you need. One of the benefits of living at a Brookdale community is that you only pay for the care services you need, which means you can almost always find something that fits within your budget.
Medicare and other federal programs typically don’t cover the cost of assisted living. You will likely need to pay with personal savings, assets or long-term care insurance.
Some of our assisted living communities have different guidelines, but you are often welcome to bring personal belongings and furnishings to make your new space feel more like home. We always encourage our residents to personalize their apartment so it feels comfortable, inviting and relaxing.
We offer a variety of room sizes and floor plans so you can choose the one that’s right for you. While styles vary between communities, our apartments are designed to feel and function like a home, with kitchens, bathrooms and plenty of light from the windows. Couples can usually live in the same apartment, but it’s wise to check with the community first.
You are not required to have a car to live at one of our communities. We provide scheduled transportation services so you can run errands and make your appointments without dealing with the hassle of driving and parking. However, if you still want to drive, many of our communities allow residents to have cars.
Pets are an important part of the family, which is why most of our communities are pet-friendly. Be sure to check with your individual community before you arrive in case there are weight or breed restrictions.
We try to welcome as many individuals as possible, but our number one priority is a resident’s health. If we believe a senior needs more care than we can provide, we can make suggestions for an alternative care solution.
No problem! We have trained staff members who can help with medication management. If you could benefit from this kind of service, just let the staff at the community know and they can help you out.
