You can live well and age well when you come home to Brookdale Willows Sherman, a luxurious senior living community set on three acres of beautiful landscaped grounds in Sherman, Texas. Our community offers assisted living and Alzheimer s and dementia care, so 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 familiar surroundings and close friendships.
As an assisted living resident, you have the time and opportunity to re-ignite an old passion or find a new one, boost your mental and physical fitness or take exciting excursions with friends. Our memory care residents benefit from a person-centered approach focused on preserving their identity and sense of self. And you and your family have peace of mind knowing our staff is on-site 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
With our jam-packed activities calendar, there s always something going on at Brookdale Willows Sherman. Round up a few friends and neighbors for a little friendly competition at the game tables, try your hand at a new art medium or sit and stitch with other knitters and crocheters. We offer ice cream runs, technology lessons on the iPad and other electronic devices, movies, our B-Fit exercise program and Bible study. You might want to venture out for local shopping, dining, grabbing coffee or visiting such places as the Harber Wildlife Museum, Eisenhower Birthplace State Historic Site in nearby Denison and Loy Lake.
When you walk through the front door into Brookdale Willows Sherman, you ll immediately notice the warmth and peacefulness of our community, beginning with the calming colors and home-like furnishings. Your comfort is important to us, so our common areas are cozy and very inviting, including the fireside living room, library and sunshine-filled dining room. With monitored entries and exits and an enclosed courtyard, our memory care residents remain safe while having complete freedom of movement.
You ll choose the apartment that best suits your needs from eight studio, one-bedroom and two-bedroom floor plans. All apartments are on one level for easy access and each has a private bath, large windows to let in abundant natural light, a 24-hour emergency response system and a kitchenette equipped with a full-sized refrigerator. If you either don t want to live alone or wish to save on rent, you can move into a friendship suite, in which two residents share an apartment. Bring your favorite furniture, photos and cherished keepsakes so your home unmistakably reflects your unique style. And if you have a treasured four-legged family member, bring it along, too. We re very pet friendly.
Our memory care residents enjoy such physical activities as B-Fit exercises and walking, socializing at mix-and-mingles, reminiscing about the old days and enjoying music. Maybe you ll find them working on an art project, playing cards, singing karaoke or taking a baking class. They re having fun, yes. But each of these activities is part of a carefully designed care program to help them flourish and use meaningful life skills and talents even with advanced expressions of the disease.
Our fine dining experience is prepared by a chef who serves three nutritious restaurant-style meals and several snacks each day. You ll dine on such tasty and refined dishes as chicken cordon bleu, pub battered cod and beef pepper steak. To avoid any confusion or added stress, we keep mealtimes very routine for our memory care community.
Our assisted living lifestyle provides all the independence you want and a helping hand when you need it. We can get you started, perhaps in bathing, dressing or managing medications. Then we step out of the way of your daily living.
If a resident ever should need a deeper level of assistance, it s an easy transition into our memory care program, which is deeply rooted in a person-centered approach focused on creating feelings of belonging and purpose for your loved one. With gentle guidance and visual reminders, we provide a secure, safe place that meets them where they are and allows them to flourish even with advanced expressions of the disease. While your loved one benefits from our care, you ll have peace of mind knowing there is trained staff on-site 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
