Moving is a life-changing transition and there is a lot to consider. We are here to support you in person, over the phone and online with resources that help you weigh the pros and cons of staying in your current home or finding a new one designed to meet your changing needs. You can even get some of the questions we hear most answered here.
This is your decision. But if we can help you feel more informed during your decision-making process, and even more comfortable in your new home, it would be an honor.
Experience maintenance-free living in your own private cottage and as part of a lovely, secure community. Stay close to friends and a host of social, recreational, spiritual and educational activities. You can even add assisted living services of choice without leaving your new home.
Enjoy the people, places and things you’ve always loved with the peace of mind that comes from knowing our licensed nursing staff is on-site 24 hours a day. Your personalized service plan includes any ongoing assistance you may need with daily care and activities, leaving everything else in your capable hands.
Each senior with Alzheimer's and related memory impairments has a unique life story, something that is very important to how we care for him or her. Behavior-Based Ergonomics Therapy (BBET) relies on the things we learn about your loved one to comfort and connect with them in a warm and nurturing environment.

You are probably here because you're looking for information and peace of mind. We'd like to help you find it.
Maybe you're searching for the feeling of community and a chance to meet friends who will share your interests, a good laugh or a pan of brownies. Someplace that's comfortable, safe and secure, near family, with little to no maintenance. Or maybe you've noticed it's harder to navigate stairs, to do laundry, run errands, cook, shower or keep track of medications. You may have realized that helping a parent or spouse do these things is becoming more difficult for you. You're probably wondering what options are available, if they're right for you and your family and where to begin.
Begin by taking stock of your needs, what's important to you and what would make your life richer and more fulfilling. Then find these things and more at Brookside, a warm, safe and friendly senior living community that promotes independence, dignity and well being for its residents.
