Description of Brookdale Shawnee
Brookdale Shawnee (formerly known as The Sweet Life at Shawnee) is a safe and comforting senior community offering Alzheimer's and dementia care options that honor and respect our residents' desire for independence. Our staff is committed to making each person feel safe, comfortable and truly at home in our close-knit community. We encourage residents to stay connected to the world they live in and help them feel secure.
Brookdale Shawnee is owned and operated by Brookdale. Since 1978, we have been dedicated to enriching the lives of seniors with compassion, respect, excellence and integrity.
Brookdale Shawnee is a secure community with 18 apartments in each of our three neighborhoods. Accommodations are single-story ranch style with no steps or elevators for residents to negotiate. We offer a selection of studio floor plans with private baths, walk-in showers and emergency call systems.
Brookdale Shawnee's design maximizes independence, while enabling safe wandering, offering many living areas to socialize, enjoy music or relax quietly. Residents enjoy an old-fashioned sundae in the ice cream parlor, stroll along the community patio or get pampered and look great visiting our salon and spa.
Our Alzheimer's and dementia care program provides a gentle structure to each day that targets specific needs of those with Alzheimer's and various types and levels of dementia. We provide a variety of activities to stimulate, entertain and enrich the lives of each resident including physical fitness, recreational pursuits, educational and spiritual programs.
We have highly trained memory care staff, and our staff-to-resident ratio far exceeds industry standards. Licensed nursing staff is on-site 24 hours a day for residents' convenience or in case of emergency. Our in-house chefs provide freshly prepared meals and snacks with a rotating menu to please even the pickiest diner.
Brookdale Shawnee is a reassuring community seniors love to call home.
