About the community

Safety For Them, Peace of Mind For You

We understand how difficult it can be to transition your loved one's care to someone else. That's why we go above and cultivate a warm and welcoming memory care environment that fosters a sense of purpose and belonging without sacrificing quality care and professional safety measures.

When your family member moves into our community, they have endless opportunities to participate in stimulating activities, programs and events that inspire confidence, success and meaning while experiencing holistic wellness and social interaction.

Just because a senior is living with Alzheimer's or other forms of dementia does not mean they should sacrifice a rich and full senior living experience. You can regularly find residents enjoying activities like mental morning workouts, group games, pet therapy, arts and crafts, soothing hand massages and classes on flower arranging and jewelry making. We also take groups on scenic drives and outings to local restaurants, ball games, golf courses and more.

In addition to our fun-filled events calendar, your family member will experience a community designed from the ground up with memory care in mind. With small spaces designed to resemble a private home, emergency...

my experience during covid

The community was extremely friendly and they went out there to take care of my loved one. When I first walked in it just felt right and I wish we would move her in sooner. I would recommend this community to others.

Superior care at Brookdale Shawnee

Mom and Dad visited my family and I in Virginia in May of 2013. I'd seen Mom deteriorating over the last few years, but this time was the worst by far. I couldn't believe Dad even attempted the two-day drive with her. He was so exhausted when he arrived that he sat down in the recliner and slept for five straight hours. He was haggard, run down, and weary of living and loving. His purpose of the trip was to get my opinion on what to do with Mom. We spent a long time talking about it, and my wife and I convinced him of what he already knew but was reluctant to admit...Mom needed more care than he could provide. Fortunately he had already done his research on facilities, and had determined that Brookdale Shawnee (formerly The Sweet Life) was the best facility in the area. So in June of 2013 my brother and I went home to help move Mom in. I cannot imagine a better place for a family member to be cared for than the Brookdale facility in Shawnee, Kansas. I've visited Mom several times in the last two years, and on each visit I leave impressed with the compassion and professionalism of the staff. They provide exquisite care in a demanding environment. They keep Mom clean and comfortable despite her physical ailments, and somehow they even manage to keep track of all the items she continues to, glasses, sweaters, etc. The staff has always had a smile and kind words for visitors also. They go out of their way to make sure that family and friends know their loved ones are being cared for. Even though my visits are infrequent, I know the care provided is not just a show for visitors. I can tell because Dad is back to his lively and vibrant self. While resigned to the fact that Mom will never be well, the superior care that Mom is receiving has lifted such a burden from his shoulders that he is living again. And for that I cannot say enough words of gratitude. I know that caring for Dementia patients is taxing, but The Brookdale Shawnee staff make my mother feel safe, loved, and comfortable. Last summer I was with her while a visiting performer sang Elvis Presley, Everly Brothers, and Johnny Cash tunes from the 50's and 60's. Mom can't remember anything within the last 30 years, but she sang those songs from her childhood. It brought true joy to her eyes, and reminded me that inside she's still alive. Brookdale Shawnee has my complete support, and I hope you'll consider them for a second Best of Senior Living award. You're welcome to contact me if you have any questions or would like to follow up. I know that care for dementia patients can be
