Architecture Overview:

Brookestone Gardens is the newest addition to the Vetter Senior Living family of communities.  This retirement community is specifically designed to meet the full spectrum of housing and care needs for residents living in Kearney and the surrounding community. The entire independent living portion of the building is designed to assisted living standards to accommodate aging in place operational and care strategies. This new community includes 47 independent/assisted living apartments, 29 private rooms for long term care in skilled nursing and 25 private rooms for short term rehab in skilled nursing. The resident experience is enhanced by a number of social spaces, including dining venues which are flooded with natural daylight through clerestory windows, bistros for casual dining, indoor and outdoor, wellness environments and covered outdoor patios. The exterior of the building, with its swooping clerestories and reverse shed roof lines, is designed to honor Kearney’s global reputation for the annual migration of Sandhill Cranes.  The 25-acre campus is master planned to expand with independent living options in the future.
