Company Description
Let's Redefine Senior Living - Opportunity lives here every day.
Our goal at Brookdale is to assist each family during their search for senior living -- no matter what stage of the process they are in. Whether you're just starting the search or you've already visited what feels like a million communities, you'll find what you need in this section to make a thoughtful, well-informed decision about senior living.
Making an important decision, such as this, takes time. But it is possible to make the right one for your family. You don't have to do it alone though. At Brookdale, we are here to serve you. Our associates help families in the same situation every day. They can answer any questions, talk through any concerns, and provide a listening ear. Often, the hardest part of the process is just getting started, and you've already accomplished that. Now we're just here to help you through the next few steps.
Enriching the lives of those we serve with compassion, respect, excellence and integrity.
Every day is an opportunity for Brookdale associates to deeply connect with people in a profound and personal way. For our residents, we provide comfortable lifestyles and caring environments, with opportunities to improve wellness, fulfill lifelong wishes, and stay connected with friends and loved ones. And for those seeking help and information about senior living, we offer answers to their questions and solutions for meeting the unique and individual needs of each resident and their family.
It all starts with listening to and understanding the unmet needs of those we are talking with; their hopes and uncertainties for themselves or for loved ones. Then we partner with them to determine a solution designed to help enrich their lives. We believe that growing older doesn't mean the options for enjoying life have to shrink. Our philosophy is that we're all aging, but that should never keep us from living.



Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
