Brookstone Estates of Effingham Supportive Living



Recently remodeled in the spring of 2014, Brookstone Estates of Effingham provides Supportive Living to the people of beautiful Effingham, Illinois. Our affordable senior housing community is designed to promote creativity and independence within a safe and loving environment. We would love for you to visit us with your family and loved ones and see for yourself!


With its convenient location just north of the Effingham medical district, a host of dedicated senior care services, and a wide array of amenities, Brookstone Estates ensures that each resident’s wants and needs are carefully tended to in an atmosphere dedicated to the closeness of family and friends. Residents enjoy board games, movies, cards, book clubs, church services and other social activities in our large and comfy family room and activity room. The many activity spaces, senior care services, and amenities at Brookstone Estates of Effingham allow our residents to kick back, relax, and enjoy themselves with friends and family.


Life at Brookstone Estates of Effingham includes our dining program featuring fresh, home-cooked meals prepared by our chef; housekeeping service; award-winning programs; daily wellness checks and more. We drive groups to local markets, restaurants, and attractions, too. Have a request? We are more than happy to take you wherever you need or want to go—just ask!


Our Effingham Assisted Living residents and residents’ families receive valuable peace of mind knowing that our certified nursing assistants (CNAs) are available 24/7 and a 24-hour emergency call response system is in place. Prior to moving in we speak with you and your physician to find just the right level of assistance that will allow you to enjoy your independence to the fullest. Together, we will compose an Individual Service Plan (ISP) to guide us in assisting you. Our mission is to provide senior care services along with a lifestyle that fosters independence, actively engages the mind, invigorates the body and nurtures the spirit while offering you and your loved ones the peace of mind you deserve.


While some communities insist on new residents putting down huge, non-refundable payments up-front, we like to do things a little differently. We care about not only the physical and emotional well-being of our residents, but their financial health as well. That’s why we offer our residents all the perks of country club living without the expensive buy-in—just a simple lease.

Brookstone Estates of Effingham offers affordable senior housing with 46 apartment homes, including studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom apartments. Further detail regarding floor plans, amenities, and more can be found along the sidebar to the left.
