If you’re looking for more than just a place to live — if you want to live well —  then our upscale, two-story retirement community located in a serene wooded area of Richmond, Va., is the place for you. Our community, which offers assisted living and Alzheimer’s and dementia care, provides abundant services, conveniences and amenities. And there’s always the security of knowing that our staff is on-site 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

As an assisted living resident, you can stay as independent and active as you want while receiving the daily personal assistance you need. Should your needs change over time, and you require memory care, you have the security of knowing you can remain here, in your home, without leaving behind familiar surroundings and close friendships.

You’ll find plenty of comfortable common space that naturally draws people together, such as the spacious, home-like fireside family room, well-stocked library, screened lanai, cafe/bistro and outdoor areas. With easy-to-navigate floor plans and soothing wall colors, memory care residents feel safe and not overwhelmed. And with monitored entries and exits and an enclosed courtyard, they remain safe while having complete freedom of movement.

Our amenities, for your safety, convenience and enjoyment, include:
•Pet friendly
•24-hour security system
•Concierge service
•Arts & crafts studio
•Beauty/barber shop
•Fitness center
•Walking paths
•Game room
•Putting green
•Private dining room
•Piano
•Computer/internet access
•WiFi access throughout
•Woodworking shop
•Porch

We know that moving to a new apartment is challenging, and that’s why we’re here to help. Your apartment — chosen by you to fit your needs — will include  large windows that look out over either the courtyard or forest and let in abundant natural light. Some have kitchenettes. And once you bring your favorite furnishings, photos and keepsakes to decorate in your own unique style, it will soon feel like home sweet home. Do you have a small pet? Bring it with you. We’re very pet-friendly!

Once you’re here, you can be as active as much — or as little — as you want. We offer an engaging calendar of activities, including card and board games, daily exercise, worship services and Bible study and jewelry making. Grab a seat on the bus for frequent outings to restaurants, shops and local attractions. With an ever-updated events calendar, there’s always something to stir your interest.

Our memory care residents enjoy socializing at get-togethers, music, singing karaoke, playing cards and arranging flowers. Each of these activities is part of a carefully designed care program to help them flourish and use meaningful life skills and talents — even when their dementia is advanced.

  • Thx for Your Genuine Caring and Compassionate Care!

    Caring, compassionate care. This is the care that our 87 year old father with progressive vascular dementia has received from living at Brookdale West End (BWE) for 1 1/2 years now. The Sales Manager was a significant help navigating us with an unplanned move for my father. Her resourcefulness and genuine sincerity was significant in helping with Dad's transition from independent living at his home to assisted living. The staff, from dining to direct resident care, has been exceptional ESP over the past 6 months!! They all know Dad's routine to keep him safe yet respectfully encourage his independence. Cost does increase, of course, with additional assistance, but BWE is very supportive with helping the resident maintain as much independence SAFELY until it is absolutely necessary for additional assistance. The activities director has been so helpful to insure that Dad is engaged in activities to have a quality life; they remind him and "reel him out" to participate and he has a wonderful time! We are also blessed to have staff who look after Dad that are experienced and competent. The Medical Assts were able to identify subtle changes in Dad's disposition that resulted in him having to have a pacemaker placed. They also identified new changes in his medication regimen that was concerning to them, notified the family and physicians and prevented what could have been a trip to the ER for Dad. Overall, we couldn't be happier than having had Dad reside at Brookdale West End. What we appreciate the most is the sincere care they provide to our dad. We trust that he is safe and in good hands in our absence. The only suggestion we would offer, quite honestly, is faster, effective wi-fi service in the residents' apartments!

  • Brookdale West End Richmond.

    I have toured just about every Assisted Living in Richmond, Virginia. Most were not elderly friendly when entering the building. Some had the elderly line up in wheel chairs just seating there looking like they were ready to pass on. Brookdale West is a breath of fresh air. From the moment we arrived it looked like home. Beautiful grounds. The front doors open automatically. That’s a plus for any elderly person. The interior was beautiful and pleasant. We were greeted as we came in. But most important of all, was Brookdale residence looked/were happy. No staging or made up, they were very happy. It was clean, staff was professional, caring and supporting of its residence. The rooms where nice size and clean. Medical staff on site. Plenty of activities for all residence. An awesome walking trail/garden. I would recommend this facility to me if I was looking and I would most defiantly recommend this facility to all.

  • Thanks, Brookdale!

    From our initial visits to the move in and for the first months of residency, working with Brookdale West End Richmond's excellent staff has made the assisted living transition easy for my mother in law and our family. We have had an absolutely positive experience from the moment we walked through the doors to the lovely main floor living area. The personal attention of [name removed] and her staff in answering questions and assisting with the move has been impressive. The program manager, [name removed], is energetic and knowledgeable and has a real gift for working with older people. Her sense of joy and excitement is contagious. When we visit, we are warmly greeted and feel very welcome. Thanks, Brookdale and your entire staff, for a job well done.
