Brookstone Estates of Mattoon South Independent Living



Opened in 2002 and recently renovated in 2012, Brookstone of Mattoon South offers gracious Independent Living for seniors who would like to worry less and live more. Located in Mattoon, Illinois, our 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, a host of dedicated services, and a wide array of amenities, each resident’s wants and needs are carefully tended to in an atmosphere dedicated to the closeness of family and friends. Residents enjoy the many activity spaces, services, and amenities in the Mattoon Independent Living community. We have a church, shopping, a theater, hospital, and more only a short drive away. Have a request? We are more than happy to take you wherever you need or want to go—just ask!


Our residents and residents’ families receive valuable peace of mind knowing that professional service staff are available 24 hours a day and a 24-hour emergency call response system is in place for residents of Brookstone of Mattoon South. 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 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 of Mattoon South offers seven one-bedroom apartments and three two-bedroom apartments. Further detail regarding floor plans, amenities, and more can be found along the sidebar to the left.

Executive Bio for Brookstone Of Mattoon South

Robert Russell

Robert has been working in senior care since 2002. His favorite part about his role as Executive Director of Brookstone Estates North has been sharing with his staff the knowledge, training, and resources they need to provide residents the best care possible.

“We have a very knowledgeable and caring staff, and we absolutely love caring for our residents as we get to know them,” he says. “We take pride in giving our residents what they need, but also empowering them to be as independent as possible.”

Prior to Senior Lifestyle, Robert worked for two years as a Psychosocial Rehabilitation Counselor for people with mental illnesses before working in senior care as a Social Service Director for five years. He held a marketing role and became the Alzheimer’s Coordinator over a span of four years, before joining the Brookstone Estates North family in Mattoon, Illinois, as Executive Director in 2011.
