Levels of Care

Live the life you choose with the security of care options, if needed.  Our community offers a continuum of care with Independent Living, Assisted Living, Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care and Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation.

Independent Living

At Brookdale University Park, trade the work and expense of house maintenance for a well-appointed residence that serves you. Let us take care of the chores, while you relax and enjoy a well-deserved retirement.  Our Independent Living lifestyle offers refined amenities, attentive service and engaging opportunities so you can live life as you choose.

As a resident you will enjoy the convenience of restaurant-style dining, housekeeping, laundry and transportation services in a desirable location near popular attractions with shopping and restaurants close to campus.

With a number of planned activities and award-winning programs, our residents have many appealing and entertaining options, including our signature B-Fit exercise program as well as Brookdale Celebrates.

Brookdale Celebrates combines inspired culinary and educational offerings that come together with themed experiences, special events and group activities spotlighting different cultures and cuisines.

Fine Dining

At Brookdale University Park, we are passionate about great meals. Our menu is crafted with the help of registered dieticians and culinary chefs who create choices for even the most discerning palates. Meals are served restaurant-style with wait staff, table linens, and music for an exceptional dining experience. If you have special dietary preferences, or a medically prescribed diet, our staff will create meals to accommodate your needs and requests.

Assisted Living

There may come a time when you or your loved may need additional help with daily tasks. 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.

We provide care that balances independence with assistance and delivers service with compassion, understanding and respect. With comfortable accommodations and an impressive line of features and amenities, Brookdale residents enjoy life with the confidence of knowing we are here, partnering with you and your family, to customize solutions that support our residents’ needs as they evolve.

Memory Care

We understand your concerns for your loved one’s safety and well-being, and we understand the weight of the responsibility of caring for someone with Alzheimer’s or other types of dementia. Let us help you and your loved one with our compassionate, specialized care.

Our community offers programs and safe environments for those with Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia. We believe no matter where an individual is on life’s journey, each has the right to live in a dignified manner and to enjoy meaningful experiences every day.

Deeply rooted in a person-centered approach, our Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care program, also called the Clare Bridge program, focuses on sustaining feelings of belonging, purpose and safety while seeking to preserve a sense of self. The Clare Bridge Daily Path provides residents with a structured routine of activities that help maintain their abilities and encourage the use of their current skills.

Designed by a team of culinary associates, experts in Dementia Care and registered dieticians, our unique dining program promotes a positive and successful dining experience with the following features:

  • Dementia-friendly menus with selections that are easy to manage
  • Individualized dining assistance
  • A supportive dining environment that encourages familiarity and socialization

Memory games, gardening, daily exercise, musical programs and pet therapy are just a few of the activities we offer for our memory care residents.

Through our unique memory care programs, we offer comfort from the struggles of dementia for you and your loved one with customized care to meet your loved one’s specific needs. Our skilled associates provide compassionate and attentive dementia care, and enable residents to experience daily moments of success.

Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation

Life takes many turns, especially as it relates to health. On those occasions it is reassuring to know you have access to specialized care right here on campus. We offer licensed and Medicare-certified Skilled Nursing Care with well-appointed private and semi-private accommodations.

Whether it’s a short-term respite visit while recovering from surgery or a long-term rehabilitation after a joint replacement, we have the services and care you need, when you need them. Our Skilled Nursing team provides round the clock nursing care and our on-site rehabilitation professionals offer physical, occupational and speech therapies to help patients enhance or regain their independence.

We partner with you and your family to create a care plan that honors your individual preferences and needs.  We treat the whole person — mind, body and spirit — with compassion and attentive care.
