When you are enjoying your retirement years, you don’t want to be burdened with pesky household tasks like cooking meals, doing laundry and mowing the lawn. We take care of all that.

Each and every day we provide our residents with a first-rate dining experience accompanied by dishes that are thoughtfully crafted and nutritionally well balanced. It’s important to us that the food served to our residents and their loved ones is the best that it can be, so our menus are developed by the Culinary Arts Institute of Brookdale.
During retirement, you or loved one may need addition help with daily tasks, like taking medication or bathing. This is extremely common, and at Brookdale Wayne we offer Assisted Living care to assist in those needs.
We understand that each person and their needs are unique, so we take time to do a personal service assessment. During that assessment, we’ll listen to you and understand your specific needs, concerns and desires. Then we will develop clinical, dining and program support that works for you. If those needs change during your time with us, we will partner with you and adjust services to meet those new needs.
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.
Our care approach at Brookdale Wayne is to balance independence with assistance and deliver service with compassion, understanding and respect. With amenities such as an on-call nurse, aid with administering medicine, and escort services, you can be confident that we are here to help no matter what.
