Brookstone Estates of Vandalia Supportive Living



Opened in 1999, Brookstone Estates of Vandalia provides Supportive Living in beautiful Vandalia, Illinois. Our affordable senior housing community is designed to promote creativity and independence within a safe and loving environment that delivers the exact senior care services that you need. 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 senior care 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 board games, movies, cards, dominoes, and other social activities in our large and comfy family room. The many activity spaces, services, and amenities at Brookstone Estates of Vandalia allow our residents to kick back, relax, and enjoy themselves with friends and family.


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


Our Vandalia Assisted Living residents and residents’ families receive valuable peace of mind knowing that certified nursing assistants (CNAs) overseen by a certified nurse (RN) are on duty 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 top-notch senior care services and support 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 at an affordable senior housing community.


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 and extraordinary senior care services, all without an expensive buy-in—just a simple lease.

Brookstone Estates of Vandalia has 46 apartments, all on the ground floor for ease of access. We have studio apartments with a kitchenette, one-bedroom apartments, and two-bedroom/two-bath apartments. Our apartment homes feature full-size stoves and refrigerators in the kitchens, large bathrooms with walk-in showers, and outdoor patio areas perfect for personal gardens and patio furniture. Some apartments have private parking. Further detail regarding floor plans, amenities, and more can be found along the sidebar to the left.

Testimonial Image

. Their “apartment” is very nice and comfortable. They were able to bring many of their belongings from their own home and can personalize their space. It’s also nice to have the privacy and home-like setting for visitors, unlike visiting a standard “nursing home.” The staff members are always friendly and helpful, and my grandpa raves about the various desserts, and more recently the tapioca pudding, that they offer during mealtime. The staff members assist with medication management and help them keep track of various doctor’s appointments, which is very helpful. My grandparents are able to have their own vehicle, but transportation is also available for times when they need to be out after dusk, as my grandmother cannot drive at night. They have made a lot of friends at Brookstone Estates and it eases our minds that they are able to get almost immediate assistance from staff members in the event of a fall or other issue. It’s a nice alternative for elderly people who just need some extra help and are worried about the transition from their own home.
