The general public can get insights into senior living and health care, too!


BRENTWOOD, Tenn., August. 13, 2019 – Brookdale Senior Living, the nation’s leading operator of senior living communities, is pleased to announce the launch of its newly redesigned newsroom, BrookdaleNews.com. The updated site features a streamlined look and improved functionality making it easier to subscribe for news alerts, find stories, press releases, blog posts, and to connect with subject matter experts.  

Over the last year, Brookdale’s online newsroom has seen an increase in subscribers and use of its content by reporters, aggregator news sites, and the general public.

These updates can provide peace of mind to family members during emergency situations, helping them understand where their loved ones are and how they are being cared for. The growth in service provided by BrookdaleNews.com led to the redesign as a way to continue engagement and the sharing of important information.
