Relaxation for Now. Care for Later.


With three distinctly different levels of senior living care, our community has something for everybody. Our residents take advantage of independent living, assisted living, and memory care for those living with Alzheimer's or other dementia. 

At each care level, we provide an exceptional quality of life, providing a long list of interesting things to do, and a community full of interesting people to do them with. And it's all in a community that feels just like home, especially after you move in your favorite family keepsakes, photos and mementos.

We are just minutes away from St. Johns River and many shops and restaurants, close enough to downtown Jacksonville to enjoy the best the city has to offer, but far enough to be tucked into a quiet, peaceful corner. 

Our residents enjoy retirement in a community that makes socializing, staying fit and staying active, easy and convenient. Relax with a good book in our library, play a game of shuffleboard with friends outside on our court, or admire our lovely duck pond from our gazebo: at Brookdale Southside there is something for everyone to enjoy. 

We offer a variety of programs and activities, including:
Wii sports
Water aerobics
Massage
Cooking class
Chef-driven dining menus, three times a day
Community pool?

Our community has nine different floor plans for residents to choose from, ranging from studio to villa options. And after you move in, your options continue, as we have plenty of choices for how to spend your days here.

??Our staff members are fully committed to providing the best care to our residents and go above and beyond daily. We create personalized care plans with each of our residents to ensure we are taking care of all their needs. Because we offer all three levels of care, as your needs change, your home address doesn't have to. Instead of uprooting your whole live to move, You'll just transition seamlessly into a new care level.

With a wide range of care levels, in a home-like setting, choosing us for your senior living solution means fewer worries, more choices, and a life lived well.

  • Great overall place

    The activities Brookdale provides are entertainment groups that occasionally come in at night to sing and play music. They are however lacking in activities during the day, could have more games. The food is good, they offer a variety of choices. They have nice apartments, we have a full kitchen. They also have a heated pool!

    The community is always clean. My father is here and I know they have regular housekeeping staff that comes once a week to clean, vacuum, do laundry, and change the bed. Everything is always spotless. In addition to that, during the Covid-19 pandemic, they have done a wonderful job protecting the residents. We have been very happy to have my father here at Brookdale Southside. The normal care is great, but in addition to that, you can pay for additional care, which is very high quality as well. The activities are also normally great, however they are limited during the community lock down. They have get together's for birthdays, community-involved events, movie nights, and live entertainment. They also normally have regular trips to the grocery store or to other places in town. They really make an effort to keep the residents active and engaged. Given the care and other services that they offer, we do feel Brookdale Southside is a good value for the price.
