We offer 80 senior apartments, including studios, deluxe studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom units.

Small pets are always welcome and are treated just like members of our family.
Common areas including a spacious dining room, living room with television and cozy fireplace, gym and activities room give residents the opportunity to get to know each other. Residents can often be seen playing Scrabble and our Triple Crown Pub is the perfect spot for happy hour.

Brookdale’s substantial investments in a Culinary Arts Training Program and staffing allow us to provide mealtime experiences that set our communities apart from the competition. From our community chefs, to select seasonings and bakery options, we have created one of the industry’s leading dining services.

A selection of home-cooked entrees are served restaurant-style, three times a day in our warm and friendly dining room. A knowledgeable and trained staff makes certain that meals are nutritionally balanced and supportive of the health and well-being of our residents. We can always accommodate special requests and dietary restrictions, and snacks and beverages are available throughout the day.
