Description of Virginia Place
Brookdale Merrillville (formerly Sterling House of Merrillville) has warm and caring staff who learn our residents' history, interests and preferences. We offer assistance where needed, but aim to help our seniors maintain as much of their independence as possible. Our comfortable accommodations are designed with seniors' needs in mind, and we welcome small pets to help our residents feel right at home.
Brookdale Merrillville is run by Brookdale, a company that has over 30 years of experience providing compassionate care for seniors. Brookdale is one of the largest providers of senior services in the United States.
Meal times at Brookdale Merrillville are no ordinary affair. Our chefs use the freshest ingredients to prepare a widely varied menu, and our friendly wait staff serves meals restaurant style in our elegant dining room.
Our entire community is handicap accessible and designed to cater to those with limited mobility. Our facilities boast an outdoor courtyard, gardening area, library, sun room and even a private dining and family room for entertaining visitors. We also have a beauty/barber shop on site to help keep our residents looking their best.
Each resident receives a personalized service assessment and plan that evaluates their needs and wants. Some of the services we offer are housekeeping, laundry and transportation. We can also provide escorts to help our seniors go shopping, run errands or get to doctor appointments.
When our residents need help getting to meals or around our facilities, our kind staff is always available to help. We are also available to help with any personal hygiene needs, right in the privacy of a resident's room. Each apartment has an emergency response system that our highly trained staff monitor 24 hours a day.
At Brookdale Merrillville, we treat each resident as an individual, responding to their needs and desires with excellence in personalized assisted living.
