Moving into a senior living community with other residents may sound counterintuitive right now because of the huge emphasis on isolation and social distancing. Despite concerns about living with others, there are many positive opportunities for residents looking to move to one of Brookdale Senior Living's locations.
During the widespread quarantine orders and safety recommendations of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, many older adults have become lonely within their homes. Loneliness and social isolation can lead to serious health problems in seniors, including dementia, depression and anxiety. Brookdale communities have private apartments, but these communities are designed with socialization and support in mind to allow residents to remain socially engaged and help maintain that vital human connection.
In order to help reduce the risk of exposure to current residents and help instill confidence in future residents, Brookdale took a proactive approach to the pandemic. They began testing residents and associates within all of their communities to identify anyone who may have been COVID-19-positive but asymptomatic. As of July 31, every Brookdale community had undergone baseline testing and had accumulated more than 100,000 test results nationally.
As you contemplate your decision, Brookdale is committed to serving you and making the transition easy. They offer pre-move introduction meetings, where allowable, as well as phone and video consultations. Apartment sizes and floor plans vary by community but may include studios, one-bedroom or two-bedroom spaces. Each one is designed to feel like home, with a kitchen, private bathroom and plenty of natural light. The cost varies by location, but the good news is that Brookdale residents only pay for the care services they need, making it easy to find something that fits within all kinds of budgets.
But the thing that makes Brookdale different is the people. The Brookdale associates and caregivers have a combination of passion for what they do and compassion for the residents they serve, providing meaningful and enriching moments each and every day. Brookdale has more than 40 years of experience in the industry, and it comes from the people who are dedicated to serving each and every one of their residents.
