Quality Care Within Your Budget
Choosing the right senior living community to call home is an important decision. Although it’s difficult to put a price on outstanding care, we understand that cost can be a big concern for many families.
Brookdale is committed to offering the best care available. We offer a wide range of senior living options that can be uniquely tailored to fit your needs and your budget.

The easiest way to determine which community meets your lifestyle and budget is to contact us directly and speak with a Senior Living Advisor. Only with Brookdale, do you have access to so many options — usually close to where you live. We look forward to speaking with you and helping you find a senior living solution that is just right for you and your family.
How Much Will It Cost?
The average cost and range for apartments in rental independent living, assisted living and Alzheimer’s/dementia care communities depends on several things — like services and the care being offered. Prices vary by community.
A good place to start is to first understand your current living expenses. When living at home, you make separate payments for things like food, utilities, home maintenance, property taxes, insurance, travel, entertainment and healthcare. Thinking of all these expenses together is a good way to begin to understand the monthly costs associated with living in a senior living community.
While many people start their search thinking about the apartment, they soon realize their decision focuses primarily on the services that will be received. With senior living, the Basic Monthly Service Rate (BMSR) typically includes:
- Restaurant-quality dining based on your menu selection, with friendly servers and an enjoyable atmosphere.
- Housekeeping chores, such as cleaning your apartment, changing linens and laundering clothing.
- Transportation options for medical appointments, shopping, education and entertainment.
- Health and wellness programs, such as our Be Fit exercise classes and other activities.
- Well-maintained common areas for socializing with friends.
- Emergency response and staff who are available 24 hours per day, 365 days per year for Assisted Living and Memory Care communities.
Your Basic Monthly Service Rate will depend upon the apartment you select, including square footage, number of rooms, location, views and unit availability. At Brookdale, we offer price point options for a wide range of budgets and lifestyles.*
