As of 2016, Brookdale Assisted Living communities provide residents with personalized services to meet their needs and preferences, including three meals a day, cleaning service, linen service, transportation and apartment maintenance. In addition, specially trained staff members are available at any time of day to assist residents with activities of daily living, including taking medications, maintaining personal hygiene and cooking. Residents also have access to a variety of recreational opportunities and social activities.
Some of the social activities at Brookdale communities center around a program called Brookdale Celebrates, which features fun monthly themes. Many of the social and recreational activities are designed to boost residents' moods, enhance their thinking and help them discover purpose.
Brookdale's philosophy, called Optimum Life, guides the care and services that it provides to residents. Optimum Life encompasses many areas of life, including health, personal fulfillment and the aging process. The Optimum Life philosophy promotes optimal functioning and living for Brookdale residents.
Besides assisted living, Brookdale offers other senior living options, including independent living, Alzheimer's and dementia care, rehabilitation and skilled nursing services. Regardless of the senior living option, Brookdale ensures that its residents are treated as individuals, maintain a sense of purpose in life, and stay involved with people and activities that they value.
