Brookdale Buford is an Assisted Living community that also offers Alzheimer’s care for seniors.
Located in the heart of historic Buford, GA., we are a distinct community that embodies class and grace. Our community sits on a hillside with a beautiful tree-lined drive. Our residents enjoy many outings, such as trips to Jaemor Farms for freshly grown produce and tastes of sweet southern preserves. The Mall of Georgia is also a main attraction as it is just five miles from our community. From a relaxing atmosphere to themed events to day trips, Brookdale Buford is a truly well-rounded community of care and support.
The City of Buford was incorporated August 24, 1872. Thomas Garner and Larkin Smith named the town after Colonel A. S. Buford, the president of the railroad that ran from Atlanta to Charlotte, NC. Buford is located in North Georgia near the metro Atlanta community area and along the southern edge of beautiful Lake Lanier. Buford is a closely knit community which has built its foundation on the importance of family and friends.
With three apartment layouts to choose from, you are sure to find the perfect option for you or your loved one. All apartment bathrooms are modified with senior-friendly shower seats and handrails. Our goal is to make every new resident feel at home whether they are there for a respite stay or longer. You are sure to notice that our home is filled with love.
Brookdale Buford’s formal living room and dining room are connected by our marbled entrance and tear-drop chandelier. Our activity room has many books, tapes and a new 60-inch television which the residents utilize when gathering for their favorite movies and TV programs. Our outdoor area is designed with rockers under our pavilion as well as flower and vegetable gardens maintained by the residents themselves. Our courtyard is a delight for the eyes and receives many compliments from visitors and guests.
We maintain close relationships with local geriatric physicians, rehabilitation centers and skilled nursing facilities. We feel that we all have the same goal in mind which is to care for our senior population. With such common ground, we communicate well with these affiliates to provide the best care and services possible.
There is nothing more heart warming than seeing familiar faces who you have grown to trust. That is what Brookdale Buford offers every day.

Our residents deserve to have trusting and secure relationships with those that care for them and we strive to make that a reality.

A local community favorite is a visit from our “Brookside Bear.” Our Brookside Bear has been known to give out his famous “bear hugs and teddy grams” in local hospitals and dialysis centers. Everyone in the community enjoys seeing him come to their place of business just to bring smiles and laughter.
Three homemade meals are prepared by our culinary art school graduates who take great pride in the preparation and presentation of all meals. Each meal is overseen by our national and local registered dietitians. Our meals are served on fine china in an elegant dining room giving our residents a fine dining experience.
