About the community

The Good Life


Tucked into more than 15 beautiful acres in the stunning city of Durham, New Hampshire, your new community will feel like home from the moment you arrive. Known as a continuing care retirement community (CCRC), we provide everything from independent and assisted living to memory care services here on a single campus. If you move in and your needs change somewhere down the road, you don't have to worry about moving again. We can make a few adjustments to your care plan and you are good to go.

Quality care is a wonderful perk to living here, but you also deserve a rich and active life complete with interesting events and activities. No matter which community you join, you can take advantage of our action-packed community calendar and spend your time exploring new hobbies, rekindling former interests and making new friends.

Free from the burden of household chores, you can wake up early and watch sun rise as you tend to your favorite plants in the garden or meet up with the residents in your walking club to explore the grounds. Whether you want to be in the great outdoors or stay inside...

My review of Brookdale

Brookdale is a beautiful facility and we liked it, it just had a more corporate-like feel to it. They do have the option to transition based on your type of care which we liked.

I would not recommend

I do not recommend Brookdale Spruce Wood at all. They have gone through 3 directors since their time here and the nursing staff is very unresponsive to my father in assisted living. They have gone through at least 3 chefs and he was getting frozen pizza for meals, so it is not good quality foods which is what they need. I will sometimes see other family members here when I drop off food and they are taking their loved ones out of the facility because it is so bad. I would not recommend to others looking.

My families experience

When we took our initial tour, and based off the only other time we were able to visit the community was kept very clean and just overall very lovely. However, our one great concern we had, was shortly after our loved one moved in, all the administrative staff we interviewed with left all around the same time. The director, maintenance man and the head nurse all left. There was also a high number of temporary help, so we started to lose confidence.

The best facility around for non dementia patients regarding the price, but for memory loss patients its much more expensive

The staff members at Brookdale were very nice and very accommodating. The food they serve is very good. The rooms are nice, but our loved one was moved into the memory care facility where she was placed into a double room which she did not like. One thing we did learn about this community was that there was an 804 and an 805 facility. The 804 facility was much cheaper, very open, they residents were able to walk freely and come and go as they please. However the 805 was more isolated since it was for the memory care and much more expensive, it was doubled the price.

Right place, right time

Brookdale was the right place at the right moment for my parents who lived independently into their 90s. They recently celebrated their 71st wedding anniversary in safety and comfort in their new small Durham apartment.

We (wife & me) are touring assisted living communities for her parents. We very much enjoyed being greeted by a resident of Brookdale. Then after talking with the resident we meet [name removed] our tour guide who was so helpful in explaining and showing Brookdale independent and assisted living areas to us. Brookdale is has very comfortable apartments and community areas. Hope to return soon with my in-laws to take another tour.

Would like a larger apartment living room. Everything else was very good and housekeeping and cleanliness meticulous. Friendly, staff and residents.

Brookdale Spruce Wood

I toured Brookdale, and I thought it was a very nice community. However, it’s a big place, and I was uncomfortable with the fact that it was situated across two floors and my mother would have to use an elevator to get around. I thought she’d be more comfortable in a single floor community.
