About the facility Brookdale Avondale

Located in a quiet residential neighborhood in Jacksonville, Florida, you can find Brookdale Avondale conveniently close to many physician’s offices, banks, restaurants, and shopping centers. As a single-story building, residents are able to move a little bit easier around the community. However, assistance with mobility, as well as with activities of daily living like bathing, dressing, and grooming, are provided when they’re needed.

Here, each resident is provided with a comprehensive care package that includes an assessment and a detailed plan. Care plans are flexible and will be adjusted accordingly if needs change over time. Best of all, there are no surprise costs, and you will not pay for a service you don’t truly need. Residents and families can also find peace of mind knowing that trained team members are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to be alerted to any emergencies. Keypad entries and a 24-hour security system have also been installed.

Senior Living Community for a friend or family member

Most of us will have the difficult decision of finding a senior living community for a friend or family member. I visited several in the Jacksonville, FL area. Brookdale Avondale was by far in my opinion, the most attractive for the cost and amenities. The staff is very inviting from the management on down. When you visit a loved one, whether it's two times a week or 50 times, the atmosphere is always cordial. When you ring the bell at the secured front door whoever opens it always has a pleasant disposition. Location was another positive, the campus is surrounded by oak trees and manicured landscaping. Occasionally you'll get to see ducks and ducklings roaming around from the bedroom window. There's shopping less than 10 minutes from. the campus. with a large grocery store and several restaurants. I highly recommend Brookdale Avondale. I don't think you'll be disappointed..

The facility is in a wonderful location, is well maintained, and very clean. It has a at home atmosphere. The staff, especially [name removed], were exceptionally helpful and informative. It was also far more affordable that I thought was possible.

Brookdale Avondale tour

I recently had a tour with [name removed] and to say I was impressed is an understatement. In looking for assisted living for my parent, Avondale exceeded my expectations. The rooms, living areas, dining room and courtyard were cozy, clean, well kept and reasonably priced. The residents have plenty of activities and a lovely dining area.

Brookdale Avondale, life’s next adventure

When life took a turn towards less independence for my Aunt, we had to look for the next level of care available for her. Having been single all of her life and no children to assist with this task, we started looking on where she thought she would be happiest. On a recommendation from a resident at Brookdale Avondale, based on this residents services she received, we only had to look at one facility before she had found her place. No more worries about her getting 3 meals a day, light housekeeping to include personal laundry services, transportation to various locations nearby, helped seal this bid. There is always an adjustment during the “get to know everyone” process and individual needs for each resident. We feel it had gotten close. She is more at peace snd she always responds “I need to be here and I enjoy it” when asked. Thanks to the staff at Brookdale Avondale for welcoming her and making this life adventure a much smoother transition.

I nice place with nice people

The people at Brookdale Avondale take very good care of me. I will be 100 years old soon and while I am not sure how much longer I will be around, I know that the people here will take good care of me. I have traveled to many places in my life and seen many things. And I am glad that my children found this place for me. Even though I do not see well anymore, they keep me included in the activities. I get to call bingo and the other residents say that they enjoy it very much.

I chose to be here so I could be around people. I do not like living alone. I made the best choice - for getting older so I would not have to make a quick drastic change in life.

They really like me here

Brookdale Avondale has a wonderful atmosphere. The hot water is really good. I've lived in another community and the hot water was often not working. The staff is very friendly and makes me feel at home. When I came here I was not feeling well, but their nurses have helped me recover. The other residents have become close friends as well.

Working in the industry I visit a lot of places around Jacksonville. For the most part, places can come across as very sterile...but not Brookdale in Avondale. If I ever start the search to put my Dad into a community, I'm starting with this one. I can't promise, I'll go anywhere else after.
