Located in the rural community of Overbrook KS, the values & stability of a small town help to make our facilities special. Our location is quiet & peaceful yet, we are still within minutes of larger cities & the activities they offer.

Brookside Retirement Community consists of 11 acres of beautiful real estate, with a scenic pond in view by the highway. It is located in Overbrook, KS and incorporates three facilities: Brookside Assisted Living, Brookside Manor and The Fields of Brookside. Overbrook is located 20 miles from Topeka (Highway 70 south, Highway 56 east) or 19 miles from Baldwin City (Highway 56 west).

We invite you to visit us in our quiet, rural setting to see for yourself how Brookside Retirement Community can provide peace of mind to those seeking a quality place to call home.
