If this winter hasn’t convinced you to throw in the towel on the tasks of home ownership, give it some serious thought, then check out Brightondale Senior Campus.

This friendly neighborhood community for 62 and better is located on Silver Lake Road just north of Interstate-694 in the heart of New Brighton.

Its continuum of care includes Meadowood Shores Senior Apartments, Brightondale Assisted Living and Reflections Memory Care. Brightondale Senior Campus has been owned by SilverCrest Properties for the past 20 years.

Brightondale Assisted Living and Memory Care are undergoing major renovation this spring, due to be unveiled May 1, 2014. The renovations include many areas of the building with updates to the lobby, dining room, second floor common space and nursing location.

The most significant change will be the expansion of the Reflections Memory Care community with the addition of 16 memory care apartments on the third floor.  The third floor Reflections community will be a mirror image of the second floor Reflections Memory Care, with the same individualized care and interactive programming. Additional information about the renovations and programs can be found at

All three lifestyles provide wholesome, nutritious dining. A variety of meal plans are offered and meals are prepared on-site by a team of experienced chefs.

Transportation is readily available at the campus, too. Whether residents need to go shopping, run errands or go to a Twins game, they find the shuttle service willing to accommodate their needs. The shuttle even makes 10 church stops on Sundays!

Pets welcome

Does the family dog want to come? Or the cat? Get the pooch under 36 pounds and bring it along. The philosophy at Brightondale is “Residents First.” The helpful, experienced staff knows every resident’s names, interests and preferences. They love their work and are there to make the residents’ lives richer. Programs abound on the campus, too: educational speakers, musical entertainment, and, for any level musicmakers, a kazoo band has been formed! It all adds up to a wide range of social opportunities that encourage lasting friendships.

And throughout 2014, campus programming will focus on the “Decades of Change,” meaningful events that are sure to conjure memories from residents who experienced them.
