Edgewood Castle Hills (formerly Brookdale) is a cozy 55-bed Assisted Living community, located near Pierce Park in northwest Boise. We offer an enhanced version of home by providing on-site care, services and amenities that facilitate independence and convenience. Plus, our residents also enjoy the benefit of having on-site Therapy Services, Home Health and Hospice provided by Edgewood’s healthcare services divisions, CaringEdge and All Care. But we’re not just tooting our own horn; hear what one of our happy residents has to say:
“Our family has had just a brief experience with Edgewood so far, but we really appreciate everything your team has done for mom already! The building improvements, the new menus and activities and the overall feeling around the community is so positive. We appreciate the compassionate staff and really enjoy getting the know all the other residents. Mom loves living at Castle Hills!”

Edgewood prides itself on being a big, small company, deeply rooted in the upper Midwest; large enough to provide all the benefits of a full-service senior healthcare company, yet small enough for each community team to be involved in the day-to-day life of each resident. The Edgewood difference is about truly improving lives and being there when you need us.
Carefree Living at its Best
Step inside Edgewood’s Independent Living Apartments and you’ll see the ideal combination of carefree living and convenient services. We are dedicated to redefining senior living by offering unique services, programs and amenities designed with opportunities for personal growth. Residents enjoy their own private apartment amidst great neighbors and access to dining and activity options. A carefree lifestyle and peace of mind; what more could you ask for.
Make Yourself at Home
We know home isn’t a place as much as it is a feeling, and we can help ease your mind and create the connections that will make Edgewood home. Our Assisted Living offers gracious living spaces with sun-filled rooms and remarkable amenities, plus the people to provide the care you need, when you need it. The notion of moving out of the place you’ve called home for 10, 20 or even 50 years is a difficult and scary thought, but with our friendly faces and warm environments we can help you make your home right here.
Balanced, Comfortable Care
The unique combination of Edgewood’s housing, healthcare and comfortable amenities can truly make a difference in the life of you and your family. Our approach offers a continuum of care, with services customized for each individual’s needs. Residents can live as independently as they choose and still receive the care they choose, when they need it. Our team members are dedicated to your well-being and can provide a range of support.

Comforts of Home
Edgewood’s Memory Care residents live as independently as possible within a smaller, more comfortable environment. Our communities are designed to feel like any cozy home; there are spaces to gather, socialize and relax with family and friends. Our communities are designed to simulate the comfort, sounds, smells and feeling of home that ignite our residents’ long-term memories to bring them joy and contentment.
No detail is too small, and while we offer soothing room colors and décor throughout, residents are encouraged to bring their own special pictures, furniture and treasures to make their apartment home.
Our open floor plan allows residents to see every area of their home without having to open doors or walk long hallways. The open concept provides clarity and prompts them to interact with their surroundings and new friends, keeping them engaged, which reduces wandering, behaviors and depression while promoting physical and social well-being.
Alzheimer’s and memory loss affect everyone differently. Our staff-to-resident ratio allows us to provide personal attention and help residents maintain daily living skills. That’s coupled with ongoing training for our staff to understand the conditions and challenges associated with this illness.
Edgewood staff members reaffirm what residents do remember, to help improve self-esteem and reinforce positive experiences. Residents may also assist staff in activities such as meal preparation, cleanup, folding laundry and other tasks to help them enjoy the community feeling.
