Levels of Care
Residents of our Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) enjoy an engaging lifestyle with a selection of care options to meet changing needs. From Assisted Living, Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care to Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing, transitioning between levels of care is simple.
We understand your concern for the health and safety of your loved one. You may worry that they may not take their medications properly or suffer a serious fall with no one around to help. You have watched them slowly lose some of their abilities to manage daily tasks, and you feel the strain of additional demands on your time as you look after your loved one, and the guilt of not being able to do more.
We also understand how your loved ones feel too. They may be afraid of losing the comforts of a home built and furnished over a lifetime, or they fear losing their independence and their connection to friends and family.
We want you to know you are not alone. Our services are the unique contribution we can make to your loved one’s well-being and quality of life. At Brookdale Bear Creek we serve our residents and their families by providing balanced assistance and care to make our residents’ lives easier, while enabling them to live as independently as possible.
