Our residents tell us Brookside is a place they love to come home to.
Our community has a quiet, resort-like feel on a wooded campus near the Geist area and just northeast of Indianapolis. There are many nearby restaurants, coffee shops, pharmacies and physican offices, but transportation is also provided.
A beautiful building is important, and we have all the modern amenities and comfort you would expect. But it's what happens inside these walls that makes our community special.
The Varietas® Memory Care Program relies on the things we learn about your loved one to comfort and connect with them in a warm and nurturing environment. We are trained in the award-winning Behavior-based Ergonomics Therapy (BBET), a personalized, non-pharmacological therapy for seniors with Alzheimer's and dementia, designed to engage seniors, reduce their stress, depression, falls and medication use. Our licensed nursing staff is available to residents around the clock, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to monitor healthcare needs and supervise personal care.
Our Wellness Director not only creates Personal Service Plans for each resident when they join the community, she and her team routinely reassesses residents for emergent needs. Everyone makes it their job to understand what makes a resident happy.
We believe in the power of good nutrition, fellowship and freshly prepared, home-cooked meals, so we employ an Executive Chef to plan our menus, train our staff and create a delicious restaurant-style dining experience. We ask for our residents' suggestions and recipes to incorporate comfort foods and personal favorites and we serve breakfast throughout the day.
Above all, we make room for the important things over the routines of the day. Sitting together and listening to a story, holding a hand, learning something new about a resident's life and remembering we are in the presence of people who have shaped our world. These moments don't show up in our job descriptions, but they make up the most meaningful parts of our day. We know how important they are.
