Exceptional Senior Living

You’re looking for more than a community that checks off most of your boxes. You’re looking for the right fit, a community of friends that feels like your tribe. Come find out if Brookdale University Park in Birmingham, Alabama, is for you. We are a continuing care retirement community, or CCRC, which means you have independent living, assisted living, memory care, and skilled nursing and rehabilitation all on one campus.

As a resident, you have the freedom to experiment with new hobbies, reignite your sense of purpose and enjoy new experiences and connections with interesting new friends. Maybe you want to take a painting class or check out a tech class and learn about podcasts. Here you can. And with a selection of studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom pet-friendly apartments, you can find just the home that fits your style. Plus, you’ll have peace of mind knowing our staff is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to be alerted to an emergency.

Cosmopolitan Lifestyle with Southern Charm

From our campus, you’re just a short drive away from downtown Birmingham where you can explore world-class art museums, the Birmingham Zoo and the Birmingham Civil Rights Institute. And for sports fans, Birmingham has something for everyone. Sure, we have college football, but we also have IndyCar racing, golf, championship baseball and more. If it’s culture you crave, attend a symphony performance at Samford University, a theater performance at the Alys Stephens Center or participate in the annual Greek Food Festival. And for nature lovers, you won’t be disappointed. Red Mountain Park includes almost 1,500 acres along the Red Mountain Ridge with more than 15 miles of trails, two city overlooks, three treehouses and a dog park. And even closer is the Homewood “Greenway,” a popular walk/run/bike trail that runs parallel to our property and is beloved by locals.

At Brookdale University Park, we’ll take care of the chores so you can focus on the fun. With housekeeping, laundry and dining services covered, you’ll have more time to do what you want to do. We want you to have what you need to feel right at home. That’s why we’ve thought of all the little extra touches that make our community feel like a vacation with your favorite friends.

Live Your Best Life

We designed our community with convenient amenities to inspire you to uncover new possibilities for a purpose-filled life. You can stroll through our gardens on paved walking paths or head across the street to the greenway. If you love gardening and flowers, spend time in our courtyard gardens. When it’s dinnertime, head to the upscale dining room for tasty and nutritious dishes. You can even host a celebration with family or friends in our private dining room. And don’t forget to book your next hair appointment at our on-site salon.

If you need extra room to host friends from out of town, you can use our guest suite. When you need last-minute snacks or groceries, we have a general store on campus. If you want to focus on personal wellness, check out our fitness room and classes. Or maybe you want to join a card game in the activity room or enjoy a book by the fireplace in our fireside living room.

More Adventures, Fewer Worries

If you’re looking for more ways to live your best life, you’ve come to the right place. We’ll take care of the chores while you focus on what you want to do. And there’s plenty to do right here on campus. For example, you could take an art class and then meet up with the garden club. Or you could join one of our mix and mingle social events before a game of mahjong. Yoga and other fitness classes and movie nights are just a couple more of the events waiting for you here. And that’s just highlighting the opportunities available on campus. We also plan trips out to local restaurants and some of the area’s favorite stores and local attractions. Plus, we’ll help connect you to other residents just like you so you can enjoy a retirement full of friendships.

For memory care residents, we offer a strengths-based program for customized activities. Also known as Clare Bridge, our program is rooted in a person-centered approach, which means we help our residents find a sense of belonging and purpose while also helping them preserve who they are with failure-free activities.
