The Marketing Team is always available to discuss costs. Brewster Place offers a rental option or a choice of investment plans. Costs vary depending on the entry plan you choose and the type of accommodation.
The rental option requires a one-time non-refundable entry fee. Depending on your choice of investment plans, 75%, 90% or 100% of your investment amount may be refundable.
The Brewster Health Center is both Medicare and Medicaid certified.
All utilities, every-other-week housekeeping service, emergency call system, 24-hour security, and priority use of the on-campus health services. Additional services include covered parking, use of the fitness center, computer center and activities.
Those who have a Catered Living apartment in the Main Building also never have to go to the grocery store. All food, breakfast, lunch, dinner and our tasty Ala Carte menu, are included in the monthly fee.
At Brewster Place, you don't need to worry about moving should you need a higher level of care or service, as that "next level" is always available on our campus.
Brewster Place's levels of care and service include:
Our full-time security force patrols the Brewster Place campus both on foot and by car, and we closely monitor over 40 security cameras mounted throughout buildings and grounds.
Brewster Place provides a Situational Awareness and Response Assistant (SARA) telephone and emergency response system. With the touch of a button, security and health personnel will respond to your location. Also, each morning an automated call from SARA will check in with you just to make sure everything is fine.
A multitude of options for dining are available at Brewster Place. All meals are provided for Catered Living residents. Optional meal plans are available on a monthly or discounted pre-paid basis to residents residing elsewhere on campus. Residents of the Brewster East independent living building enjoy their own full-service dining room offering ten meals per week.
We provide free shuttle service between all buildings on-campus and free city-wide group transportation to the grocery store, pharmacy and many local events and attractions. Bus routes on Tuesdays and Thursdays will take you to Topeka's healthcare corridor downtown for your medical appointments for a small fee.
We welcome small pets. All pets must have current vaccinations and appropriate licenses. Some restrictions apply regarding the size of dogs, and cats must be litter box trained.
Guests are always welcome. Entertain at home or reserve Brewster's private dining room or one of the many community rooms for civic groups, private parties or family reunions. Overnight guests are welcome to stay with you in your home or you may reserve one of our guest apartments for a nominal fee.
Some homes have attached garages. Other residents are assigned covered, reserved parking within walking distance of their apartment or cottage. The security office will register your vehicles and affix a parking permit.
