From Brookdale Riverwalk


Brookdale Riverwalk, formerly known as Glenwood Gardens, is a senior living community in Bakersfield, California that provides everything from independent living to skilled nursing care. The community is the culmination of a mission to provide the best possible care for its residents, whether they want to live independently or require assisted living, require memory care, or skilled nursing.

The community’s staff encourage residents to maintain a full and healthy life, in part by helping them keep up with favorite hobbies or engaging them in new ones. The community offers various levels of support tailored to individual residents and developed with help from residents’ families, doctors, and therapists.

Considering Costs

Costs at Brookdale Riverwalk are charged on a monthly basis, similar to paying a lease on an apartment. Monthly fees include the price of housing, meals, housekeeping, transportation, and a host of community amenities including a pool, gym and library and a full calendar of activities and events.

Several financial support options are available to residents depending on their individual circumstances. Staff support to help residents sell their homes is also available, and Elderlife Financial provides low-cost bridging options to support the initial move to Brookdale Riverwalk For veterans and their spouses, veterans’ benefits can help cover monthly costs.

Amenities

Brookdale Riverwalk provides a variety of amenities within each apartment and for the community as a whole. Each home within the community includes a living and sleeping area, private bathroom with shower, patio access, kitchen with full-size refrigerator and microwave, and basic cable TV.

The community’s facilities are designed to foster a communal feel and promote its residents’ physical and mental health. Residents have access to the community’s heated pool, along with high-speed Internet in the Center for Learning, a garden terrace and an outdoor dining patio. Meals are cooked fresh and served up in the community’s dining room, with a range of menu choices offered daily.

Never a Dull Day

Residents are encouraged to become full members of the community, both within Brookdale Riverwalk and the surrounding Bakersfield community. Onsite, residents can take part in everything from board games and puzzles to Tai Chi, water aerobics, and Wii bowling alongside organized movies nights and happy hours. Staff typically organizes several group outings each week to local shopping centers, restaurants and churches.

A Focus on Memory Care

While Brookdale Riverwalk caters to a wide range of senior health needs, it is best known for the care it provides to residents with dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease. These residents live in a secure care wing where they receive extra support and take part in daily, organized activities aimed at maintaining memory and boosting brain health.

The community’s “Mind Body Awareness Club” is an integral part of this program. The focus on care for cognitive impairments makes this community ideal for seniors with dementia or other memory impairments requiring extra support.
