Life at Brookdale Wooster
Remember your own days in a college dorm or summer camp, living with people your own age that shared your interests and experiences? You played cards and board games, and talked for hours swapping stories. Here at Brookdale Wooster, we recreate that fun, communal experience of living with a family of friends.
Brookdale residents are surrounded by neighbors much like themselves. They recall radio dramas, homes without air condition, cars with fins, bobby socks and phones with cords. They share a history of simpler times—and new friendships here at Brookdale Wooster.
Beautiful and Comfortable Environment
The common areas of our living and dining rooms have furnishings, artwork and interior design touches that remind residents of their own homes. Light, spacious and comfortably familiar, our large community living room is truly the “family room,” where we gather for parties, socializing and entertaining family members and friends.
Each wing of private suites is a cozy neighborhood sharing common areas just steps away. Step into the informal lounge area to chat with your neighbors. Or maybe you would like to entertain visitors in one of the formal parlors. Cook up a movie night dinner with a loved one, or bake cookies with your grandchild in the family kitchen area. Enjoy a fire in the fireplace in the winter, or step out onto the patio to read a book or your morning newspaper.

Levels of Care
Brookdale Wooster offers multiple care levels — Assisted Living and Memory Care. This is a huge benefit to residents because we are able to continue caring for them, even if their needs change over the years.
So when you settle into our community, you won’t have to pick up and move if your situation changes in the future. Brookdale Wooster can remain your home filled with your dear friends and a staff that truly cares about you.
Does your loved one need some assistance in order to perform certain everyday tasks and maintain health? They don’t have to choose between independence and assistance. At Brookdale Wooster, they can enjoy both—the relaxed comfort of a private home, plus whatever type of supportive aid they need, whenever they need it.
Each resident has a unique mix of capabilities and challenges. That’s why we will give your loved one the right balance of assistance and independence they need to ease their life—and yours. Our family of helpers is here to lend a hand. We can assist your senior as much or as little as you direct.
By choosing our community, your loved one can trade the work and expense of house maintenance for a resort-style home that caters to them. They avoid the burden of daily meal preparation, retiring from the kitchen to enjoy culinary delights served every day. And you can enjoy peace of mind, knowing that your loved one has care close at hand.
Personalized Plans to Meet Your Needs
Before a resident moves into Brookdale Wooster, our staff gets to know your loved one and your family. We take the time to listen to our residents and learn about their lives, their daily routines and their interests. We value our residents’ unique preferences and needs.
Based on our conversations with you and your loved one, we partner with you to design a Personalized Service Plan. Residents only pay for services that they want and need. And as your needs change, we update your plan.
We pay attention to the little details that make all the difference. Whether it’s a resident’s favorite scented lotion, a unique snack, a favorite recipe or a lifelong passion, our personalized touches help our residents feel that they are truly at home where they belong.
Through our unique Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care programs, we can ease your loved one’s stress. While we help them maintain their identity, personality and health, we ease concerns among family members as well. By serving and supporting you, we can lift the burden of worry from your shoulders too.
In order to provide the best opportunity for success, we utilize The Clare Bridge concept, which was created over 25 years ago and has evolved by continually embracing the latest research in dementia care, coupled with the experience of caring for thousands of people with dementia and their families. Today, Brookdale is one of the leading providers in Alzheimer’s care in the United States.
Brookdale Associates are trained in the concept of generating daily moments of success and embrace this promise by offering opportunities for residents to find happiness and meaning that supports their unique needs. The program is deeply rooted in a person-centered approach focused on sustaining feelings of belonging and purpose while seeking to preserve a sense of self.
The Clare Bridge Daily Path
The Clare Bridge Daily Path offers a gentle daily structure consisting of a minimum of six programs per day, which maintain the resident’s abilities and encourage the use of their current skills. This daily routine gives residents a sense of security that they are “right where they need to be.” Activities include:
- The Mental Morning Workout — Daily mental exercises that usetopical discussions and trivia games to exercise the mind.
- Reminiscing – We share media from their past like old movies and TV shows to stimulate your loved one’s long term memory. We also encourage residents to keep memories alive with biography journaling.
