Brookdale Waxahachie is a beautifully maintained Assisted Living and Memory Care environment for seniors. With a continuum of care, our loving family supports those needing assistance with daily activities. Residents have the security of knowing they can remain here, in their home, without having to relocate and separate from their familiar surroundings and friendships, should their needs change over time.
Nestled in a quiet residential neighborhood, our vibrant property and residences are impeccably maintained, providing all of the comforts of home. Our retirement community offers spacious residential apartments along with group common areas and the added security of loving and supportive care. We are conveniently located near medical facilities and skilled nursing and rehabilitation services, if needed.
The Waxahachie community ensures each resident maintains their privacy, dignity and independence while offering opportunities to engage in social interactions. Group common areas include our own library, a dining room, sun room, recreation and activities room, an outdoor courtyard and a beauty salon and barber shop. An exciting array of social, educational and cultural programs encourages exploring new interests as well as sharing personal favorites with new friends.
In addition, we offer a wide range of activities including parties, hobbies, exercise programs, continuing education classes, outside entertainment and off site excursions. With planned outings, we take our residents often for scenic drives and visit local restaurants and attractions including Getzendaner Memorial Park, Ellis Country Museum, or the Historic Tour of Waxahachie.
Substantial investments in Brookdale’s culinary program and staffing allow us to provide mealtime experiences that set our communities apart from the competition. From our Culinary Arts Training for chefs, to our select seasonings and bakery options, we’ve created one of the industry’s leading dining organizations. Our fine dining experience is prepared by a trained chef and receives nutritional support and recommendations from a registered dietician.
Three restaurant-style meals are served each day in the group dining room and snacks are provided throughout the day. We continue to meet the nutritional needs of residents with dining choices that offer satisfying entrees, while meeting dietary requirements. Each meal offers a selection of delicious choices, sensational service and we always accommodate special restrictions and requests.
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.
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 Waxahachie offers two levels of care:
Residents receive personal assistance and support with 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.
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.

Brookdale’s exceptional programs provide a secure environment for those with Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia. We believe that no matter where an individual is in their life, each has the right to live in a dignified manner and enjoy meaningful experiences every day.
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.

All of our highly trained associates receive initial and on-going training in proper techniques, approach and care for seniors with dementia.
An established set of protocols and techniques enables our team to intervene when challenging behaviors resulting from dementia arise. The whole-community philosophy is the key that empowers our staff to identify any unmet needs, and be a part of a solution.
Residents can feel safe knowing some of the state’s best medical facilities are all within an easy drive. Our community has visiting physicians, rehabilitation and home health partners offering physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy and additional medical services which allow you to remain in your Assisted Living or Memory Care apartment and receive the exact services you need.
Brookdale Waxahachie takes pride in the longevity of qualified and nurturing caregivers, medical assistants and executive management. Our personalized approach encourages each person to continue to live as they please, while respecting individual preferences. All of the services we provide are customized to personal and unique needs by creating a way of life that enriches the lives of others through compassion, respect, excellence and integrity.
Hospice is also always welcome. We can take residents to various rehabilitation facilities in the area, should they require more intensive therapy. Occasionally, local home health agencies sponsor health fairs at our community, offering a variety of free screenings to our residents.
