Nestled in the heart of Monroe, Brookdale Monroe (formerly Emeritus at Monroe) offers retirement living at its finest. We’re located in a quiet neighborhood with rural country charm. Close to a wide range of health services and specialty clinics, we are located near highways, putting all the “big city” attractions of Seattle within easy reach. Monroe is a growing and vibrant city offering a variety of shopping areas and a historic downtown district. The nearby Cascade mountains offer recreational activities all year round. Several lovely city parks and Lake Tye are within a few blocks of our community, and provide a unique connection to the natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest.
Brookdale Monroe offers residents a beautiful home inside and outside. Our community boasts some of the most peaceful and lovely garden areas you will find at any retirement community in the Northwest. Manicured lawns and blossoming plants and shrubs all lead to our backyard where residents can enjoy the fish in our pond or just relax, listening to the fountain. With numerous walking paths and several permanent viewing areas, our backyard is home to several native species of birds including ducks, herons and the Washington State Bird, the American (Willow) Goldfinch. As close as we are to local rivers and mountains, it’s not surprising to see deer walk across our backyard in the fall.
Our community offers two-bedroom, two-bathroom independent Cottages with their own garages and fireplaces and over 1200 square feet of living space. Our two-story main building offers studios, one-bedroom and two-bedroom apartments and several common living rooms for residents to enjoy. The Whispering Pines Living Room is home to our resident library and overlooks our backyard patio. The sun room, a staff and resident favorite, overlooks the pond and fountain and gives a bird’s-eye view of our spacious grounds and is perfect for reading a book or visiting with family and friends. A wellness center, beauty salon and two dining rooms provide residents with choices for on-site services.
