Bloom at German Church is a family-owned and operated assisted living establishment. Since 1965, our goal has been simple yet aspirational: to help our residents flourish. Entering a Bloom community does not mean checking your lifestyle or personality at the door. Residents continue to live life to its fullest potential, enjoying their favorite activities while discovering new ones, and blooming into their best selves through growth and discovery.
Bloom’s personalized service and superior care enable residents to enjoy the privacy of home, combined with the security and convenience of assistance and a maintenance-free environment. This is provided in a vibrant and intimate setting, located on a private, 3-acre plot in the heart of Indianapolis, Indiana.
We are pleased to announce that our new Adult Day Care hosted by Bloom at German Church, a licensed assisted living community, is open Monday through Friday from 7:00am – 6:00pm.
Bloom sets the standard for assisted living. We offer convenient on-site amenities, personalized services, life enrichment programs and resident centered health care in a professionally managed, home setting licensed by the State. From the moment you enter the community, you feel the family-friendly environment that sets us apart. The atmosphere is warm and relaxed and the ambience embraces the uniqueness of the local culture.
The assisted living program is designed for senior adults who require assistance with Activities of Daily Living or simply want comfort knowing that someone is available 24-hours a day. Some residents require a small amount of assistance while others require assistance with most of their daily activities.
The program has been specifically designed to enhance our resident’s quality of life by celebrating individuality, preserving dignity, valuing privacy and encouraging independence and freedom of choice.
Residents have residential choices such as selecting their apartment floor plan and designing their private apartment. We offer affordable month-to-month rentals with no buy-in fees or long-term leases – a smart financial option. There are personalized services included in the monthly rent, such as Chef-prepared meals (as part of the Five Star Dining Program), anytime snack & beverages, 24-hour support staff, utilities, housekeeping & linen service, household maintenance, transportation, emergency response programs, medical evaluations, life enrichment programs and much more! There are a variety of available additional personalized services such as assistance with daily living (i.e. waking, dressing, bathing, dining and grooming), special dietary needs, medication management, mealtime reminders, nighttime checks, escort services, incontinence, monitoring of social and behavior habits, diabetic care, additional laundry, linen and housekeeping services and much more!
Our caring associates work with residents and their families to complete comprehensive assessments. The assessment is used to develop an individualized care plan tailored to meet the resident’s personal needs and preferences. Bloom customizes the care plan recognizing that each person is unique.
There are lifestyle choices such as a full calendar of life enrichment activities, exercise and wellness programs and cultural, educational, religious, spiritual and recreational opportunities.
Our residents enjoy playing cards or taking computer classes in the activity center or getting a manicure in the beauty salon. They remain active by exercising in the fitness room or admiring the outdoor gardens along the walking paths. At night, residents enjoy movie night in the media room, or simply relaxing with a book in the library. Enjoy the stimulating activities and pursuits, or just relax – it is your choice.
With a lifetime of experience in senior care that began in 1965 and has continued through three generations, Bloom is committed to providing the tools, resources and a living environment that encourages lifelong learning, growth and discovery — allowing our residents to continue living life to its fullest potential and blooming into their best selves, while receiving personalized service and superior care.
We provide lovely fully furnished private suites for short-term / temporary stays. Respite stays can be as short as a few days, or as long as a few months depending on your preference. Our community is designed to look and feel just like the comforts of your home, but with hundreds of special touches in place to make life easier. Respite residents receive all the features and benefits enjoyed by full-time residents such as around-the-clock caring staff, on-site easy access amenities, concierge services, five-star dining, wellness programs, life enrichment activities, transportation, housekeeping, personal assistance with daily living and resident centered health care.
Family members / caregivers often seek respite services in order to take a vacation or if they leave town for a business trip, if their loved one needs additional service or strengthening following hospitalization or an ailment or they wish to take a break from the daily routine of care giving. Other residents take advantage of our short-term stay program in order to experience our community of friends and neighbors before making a decision to move permanently. It’s an excellent way to “try us out” and determine if the Bloom lifestyle fits your needs and preferences without any long-term commitment. Many of our permanent residents decide to move into our community after experiencing life during a short-term stay. Respite suites are also available for visiting guests and family members.

Five Star Dining Program
We offer Bloom’s signature Five Star Dining Program administered by our professionally trained Culinary Team. We recognize that fine dining and diet is one of the most important aspects of a senior’s life. Mealtime is often considered the most anticipated event of the day.
Our talented Executive Chef makes delicious and nutritious home-cooked meals from scratch every day for our residents using only the freshest, high-quality seasonal ingredients. Recognizing that aging can impact our taste buds and sense of smell, our culinary experts select ingredients and flavors that are tasty and smell delicious. In collaboration with our Registered Dietician, we incorporate resident’s personal recipes, special requests, old time favorites and dietary needs, so our multi-course gourmet menus are customized with their health, personal tastes and preferences in mind. We are consistently introducing exciting new cuisines, including Bloom Senior Living’s staple family recipes, for the community to enjoy. With a rich assortment of menu options at every meal, our residents are always satisfied.
Residents enjoy comfortable restaurant-style dining in our elegantly appointed dining room. All meals are served by our dedicated, friendly wait staff. Just as dinner tables were the center of family gatherings throughout the years, our residents continue that tradition by sharing stories with friends and neighbors about their busy and exciting lives within the community.
In addition to traditional dining, our residents enjoy casual al fresco dining, picnics, barbeques and themed food nights with family and friends. When residents want to relax in the comfort of their own apartment, we offer room service. Or, if residents are jetting off to an activity, casual take-out or “to-go” snack service is available. The intimate, private dining room with in-house catering can be reserved to celebrate a special event. Anytime snacks and beverages are always on hand.
Our renowned team of culinary professionals have spent decades serving seniors. They are uniquely prepared to address any accommodation, are properly certified and have won numerous world-class dining awards and distinctions. Having been specially trained to meet Bloom’s high dining standards of food and service based upon continued investment and research in culinary systems, the Culinary Team uses cutting edge techniques to enhance our residents’ dining experiences.
