Mom really enjoys the atmosphere at Brookdale. The people are very nice. All the residents are very friendly and accommodating. Her room is big enough for her. She enjoys bingo, going on trips, eating out, and going to the casino. They serve three meals and provide transportation to doctors' appointments...

Located on the banks of Calcasieu River between Lake Charles and Prien Lake, the city is the fifth largest in Louisiana. In contrast to its size however, the city is a fairly peaceful place with a population just over 70,000. Historically, Lake Charles was a cultural port where people of all races and ethnicities affected by the Civil War came for refuge. Nowadays, because of the city’s rich history, assisted living in Lake Charles is the perfect choice for any senior citizen seeking dynamic retirement living.
