Brookridge Retirement Community: Home with a View



The popular phrase “location, location, location” couldn’t be more perfect to describe Brookridge Retirement Community in Winston-Salem.

Residents’ personal journeys tell the Brookridge story best!

Current resident Jo Ellen Scott says a beautiful setting was definitely on her list of must-have qualities when she began exploring options for retirement living.

“I was looking for an active community that felt like home,” she tells. “It was also important to me to have an outside space – a door that opened to the hallway and also a door to the outside. When I walked into the first apartment, saw the kitchen and balcony, I knew it would be my home.” Jo Ellen also finds that when she travels away from the area for a vacation with good friends, she feels a bit homesick for her Brookridge “family!”

Several years ago, Brookridge residents Frank and Betty Joiner began to miss the fellowship of friends who had already relocated to retirement communities. They also realized that maintaining their large house and yard had become more and more difficult.  “After we had experienced a couple of accidents involving trips to the emergency room and further medical attention, we decided that it was time to move,”explains Betty. “We also wanted a community that provided medical services.”

The Joiners echo sentiments that the Brookridge staff was helpful and welcoming from their initial contact through their entire move. With their accommodations, meal plan, financial obligations, and available medical care all perfectly aligned with what they needed, the couple agrees the friendliness of the staff – and fellow residents! – forms a bond truly mirroring home.  “When you consider that you are living among many different personality types, the camaraderie at Brookridge is amazingly good!” says Frank. “Betty and I are exceedingly pleased at the quickness with which we were accepted into this community!”
