Brooksby Health and Wellness

Senior-Focused Health and Wellness Care

Overall health doesn’t stop with your medical care. To live a full, happy life, you need a strong mind, body, and spirit. That’s why, in addition to an on-site medical center, our senior living community includes these health and wellness resources.

For your physical fitness

  • Brooksby’s well-equipped fitness center has specially designed, senior-friendly exercise equipment. Our personal trainer can help you design the ideal workout plan or select the perfect group fitness class.
  • The all-season pool is a great place to swim laps, take a low impact water aerobics class, or play an exhilarating game of water volleyball.
  • Carefully tended, well-lit walking paths are scattered throughout Brooksby’s 90-acre Peabody campus. You can safely walk, jog, or ride your bike morning, noon, or night.
  • Climate-controlled walkways connect most campus buildings, so you can enjoy a daily walk around the community all year long, even during winter snowstorms.
  • The Brooksby Village dining team serves fresh, delicious chef-prepared meals in our on-site restaurants. We offer dishes that satisfy most dietary preferences and restrictions.

For your mental acuity

  • Brooksby offers Live and Learn continuing education classes. Ask for a list of upcoming courses when you take a tour of Brooksby Village.
  • Visit a Brooksby clubhouse to work a puzzle, play games, attend a lecture, or participate in club meetings. Memory fitness classes that help strengthen your memory skills are also offered through our on-site medical center.
  • Residents with mild cognitive impairments can sign up for Memory Health, a program designed to support and manage memory health while still living independently. The program includes medical management, resident support services, and family support.

For your social and spiritual well-being

  • Broadening your social circle is a rich part of the Brooksby lifestyle. Our lively social atmosphere makes it easy to meet new people and make new friends.
  • Residents of all faiths are welcome at Brooksby’s worship center. A variety of spiritually focused activities, including prayer groups and choirs, make it easy to connect with those who share your beliefs.

We have many different things here that keep you physically and mentally engaged.
