Brookdale Fairport was named the November Fairport-Perinton Chamber of Commerce Business of the Month.
Assisted senior living, offered at this Perinton location, has been a long-term resource within the Fairport-Perinton community, with origins back to 1997. During the past five years, Brookdale Senior Living Inc. has been the managing owner of this assisted-living residential community, adding to their 1,039 senior communities they operate across the U.S. Brookdale is the leading operator of senior-living choices and services in the country. At the Perinton location of Brookdale, they offer 70 apartments and service residents through a compassionate staff of 30.
What Brookdale Fairport is known for is socialization. Everyone knows each other throughout the residents and staff. The activities are frequent, highly accessible and encouraged.
“Residents really support one another here. They also report that their life experience at Brookdale is like resort living. Even Town Hall meetings are part of our culture, with residents and staff coming together to continually enhance life for all of us,” said Executive Director Joe Lynch.
Sales Manager Alison Bearer shared a resident’s story.
“One resident is a Marine veteran, engineer and former pilot. How did he impact your life? He worked during the Eisenhower administration on the creation of our cross-country highway system. By piloting over our country’s landscape, he would take photos with a special camera that showed varied ground elevations,” said Bearer.
“Brookdale Fairport is an active member of the chamber, having included the chamber from the very beginning of their ownership, five years ago, in a ribbon-cutting ceremony,” said Fairport-Perinton Chamber Board member and co-owner of Raise the Bar Designs, Kellie Wright. “They have also opened their doors to invite chamber members into their facility during one of our monthly Chamber Coffee.”
Fairport-Perinton Chamber membership is one of Brookdale Fairport’s affiliations. They also belong to the Greater Rochester Area Partnership for the Elderly. Plus, Brookdale participates in many local community events.
