Brookdale University Park Celebrates 20 Years

Senior Scene


Brookdale University Park is so thankful to have had the opportunity to serve Birmingham area senior adults and their families for the past 20 years.  From its opening in 1999 under a different name, our retirement community has added several service lines to make it a true continuum of care, including a newly constructed skilled nursing facility on campus, personalized living companion services and home health services.  We have also expanded some of our services to make them available not only to Brookdale residents but also to those who still live at home.

Brookdale's Betty Johnston
Betty Johnston has been a part of the senior adult community at Brookdale University Park for the past 12 years. Join her and other residents at Brookdale’s annual holiday open house, December 5.

Over the past two decades, we have had the chance to care for many well-educated, successful, kind-hearted and interesting older adults.  Operating a facility such as this that is open 24/7 can have its challenges, but we always remind ourselves that we “work” where they “live.”

In the words of resident Betty Johnston, “It is an art in itself to know how to conduct yourself around your elders.  Some people have it, and some people don’t.  They try to get the ones that have it!”
