When you join us at our assisted living community in Waco, Texas, we’ll take care of the responsibilities — housekeeping, laundry, cooking and providing just the right amount of personal assistance and care to make your life easier — so you can spend your days doing exactly what you want. Additionally, you’ll have the security of knowing that our staff is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to be alerted to an emergency.

Get back to the things you’ve always loved or try some things you haven’t done. The activities calendar includes board and card games, paint-and-wine parties, movie matinees in our theater, Bible studies, ice cream socials, fitness classes for both your body and brain and live music. We take outings to local restaurants, shops and attractions such as the Texas Ranger Hall of Fame and Museum or the Cameron Park Zoo.

We know that moving into a new home is challenging, but that’s why we’re here to help. You’ll choose, from multiple floor plans, the apartment that best suits your needs and it will include large windows that provide abundant natural light. You can bring your favorite furniture, photos and treasured keepsakes to decorate and arrange so your home reflects your unique style. If you have a four-legged friend, bring it along. We’re very pet friendly and welcome them into our community.

You’ll find that the comfort and coziness of your apartment extends into our home-like common areas, as well. The comfortable fireside living room, enclosed sunroom and natural-light-filled dining room are inviting places to visit with friends and neighbors over coffee or tea.

Amenities include:
•Beauty/barber shop
•Courtyard and garden
•Wellness center
•Theater
•Parking

  • Great option for full turnkey senior care in the Waco TX area

    When my mom was no longer able to live in her senior community in August of 2017, I had a very short time to find a suitable new home for her. Complicating the situation was she (and I) was located in Dallas, TX, but her wish and her son-in-law/grandchildren's wish was to re-locate to Waco (~110 miles south of Dallas) where they were. So walking into Brookdale Lakeshore for the 1st time was very stressful, as I'd been to a couple of other senior communities in the Waco area that were highly recommended, yet when I visited them they were either poorly maintained or the staff were indifferent to our challenges (or both). THANK GOD WE FOUND BROOKDALE LAKESHORE! My girlfriend (now wife) is a health insurance agency owner had suggested we check them out, and we immediately knew it was the place for my mom. From day 1, the management team there ([names removed]) took the time to hear our needs and reassure us that she would get excellent care there. She is currently in her own 1 bedroom apartment as she is still able to manage the majority of her daily needs. But the staff is always available and willing to help her with other tasks that she occasionally forgets how to do. Brookdale Lakeshore just blew away the other senior living situations in the Waco area that we reviewed for cleanliness, support, and activities for the residents. My mom's 1 year anniversary there was on [date removed], and I cannot thank [names removed] and the entire staff enough for their help, support, and love to make her living there as comfortable as possible. It’s truly a relief to know that my mom is so well taken care of, and I’m so thankful to have found Brookdale Lakeshore in Waco for her. I highly recommend them to anyone that has a family member who needs to be in a similar setting in the Waco, TX area to check them out for their services and see if they would be a good fit for your loved one. I would give them 10 stars if I could!!!!

  • Brookdale Lakeshore Is The Best

    When my mom was diagnosed with Alzheimer's in August of 2017, I was given 60 days to find a new home for her. Complicating the situation was she (and I) were located in Dallas, TX, but her wish and her son-in-law/grandchildren's wish was to re-locate to Waco (~110 miles south of Dallas). So walking into Brookdale Lakeshore for the 1st time was very stressful, as I'd been to a couple of other assisted living places in the area that were highly recommended, yet when I visited them they were either poorly maintained or the staff were indifferent to our challenges (or both). THANK GOD WE FOUND BROOKDALE LAKESHORE! My girlfriend (now wife) who is a health insurance agency owner suggested we check them out, and we immediately knew it was the place for my mom. From day 1, the management team there (Betty & Ed) took the time to hear our needs and reassure us that she would get excellent care there. She is currently in her own 1 bedroom apartment as she is still able to manage the majority of her daily needs. But the staff is always available and willing to help her with other tasks that she either forgets or has totally forgotten how to do. Alzheimers disease is terrible for the patient and their family, and while many think they can care for the patient in their home, I knew as a single man at the time that it just wouldn't work. Brookdale Lakeshore just blew away the other assisted living situations in the Waco area that we reviewed for cleanliness, support, and activities for the residents. And most importantly,, when she becomes qualified for Medicaid, she will be able to transition in place there so as not to have to go through the stress of having to find another place to live (of likely much lesser quality). My mom's 1 year anniversary there was on Oct 15th, and I cannot thank Ed, Betty, and the entire staff enough for their help, support, and love to make her living with Alzheimer's as comfortable as possible. I am so thankful to have found Brookdale Lakeshore in Waco for my mom, and I highly recommend them to anyone that has a family member dealing with Alzheimers or dementia to check them out for their services. I would give them 10 stars if I could!!!!

  • Enjoyable tour!!

    I have no complaints about the tour I had taken at this community. The staff where all friendly and made sure to accommodate our needs as best as they could possibly could. They had a nice floor plan with lots of great amenities available to all of the residents. It was just not the right fit in the end decision.
