About the community

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.

A safe secure environment

We chose Brookdale West End Richmond because of the location, the size of the community( it is smaller, only around 90 rooms), and we had comfort around the people here. The room sizes here are great, they are perfect for their needs. I think the food is good. The best part about the community so far has been that they are keeping the residents safe with everything going on. They have managed the pandemic very well. I would recommend.

Great care givers

We chose Brookdale because it smelled nicer, and it was just a nice overall facility for our price range. Also the location is great. The room sizes are HUGE. She shares a room with a roommate and it has two big windows. It was the largest room we have seen. The regular dining room looks a lot nicer menu wise but memory care seems to have has less options. My favorite part about the community is the people. They have been so helpful to get us connected via Facetime and porch visits with my mother in law. They keep us in the loop on everything and you can tell the staff genuinely care about their residents. I would recommend Brookdale West End Richmond.

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!
