Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q: How do I know if Brookridge Heights is right for me?
Everyone’s care needs are different and they may change throughout a person’s retirement. Brookridge Heights offers a safe and secure environment for people who need mild to moderate care, giving them a comfortable place to enjoy their retirement with the peace of mind that comes with around-the-clock care.
However, the community’s services are limited to non-medical personal care. They are not licensed to provide skilled nursing care, nor may they provide ongoing medical attention. To determine if Brookridge Heights is a suitable option for long-term care, interested parties can ask themselves the following questions to get a general idea of their care needs:
- Do they need ongoing medical attention to treat chronic illness or injury?
- Are they ambulatory?
- Do they need rehabilitation?
- Do they have Alzheimer's or dementia?
- Do they need help with their activities of daily living?
If a person requires ongoing medical attention or they are permanently non-ambulatory, Brookstone Heights may not be a suitable alternative to skilled nursing care. Their staff is not equipped to help people with advanced medical needs and the community may deny admission to applicants who require ongoing health care services to protect their safety and wellbeing.
However, people with all stages of memory loss, Alzheimer's and dementia are welcome at the Brookridge Heights if their level of care can be met with non-medical treatments. The community’s In the Moment® memory care program creates a safe, structured environment for people with Alzheimer's disease and memory impairments to receive care, similar to assisted living.

Before anyone moves into Brookridge Heights’ memory care community, he or she will speak to a care adviser about his or her needs and preferences.
