MADISON, Wis. — Brookdale Senior Living has completed the addition of 67 units and a new memory care program at Brookdale Madison West, an assisted living community in Madison.
Brookdale, the largest owner/operator of seniors housing in the United States, recognized the demographic changes in the area leading to increased demand for seniors housing and memory care.
The $18 million expansion was completed in several phases. In the first phase, a 67-unit assisted living building was added to the existing 48-unit community, as well as a variety of dining options and amenities.
In the second phase, the community’s initial assisted living building was updated and renovated to memory care units. The memory care section is split into two sections of 20 units each — one for those with acute memory care needs, and another to try to slow the progression of early-stage dementia.
