About Our Community
Lubbock, Texas Alzheimer’s Care
Brookdale Monterey, formerly Emeritus at Quail Ridge, is a Lubbock, Texas Alzheimers care community for seniors. Centrally located in Lubbock, Texas, the community is close to Interstate 27 and the main thoroughfare of 50th street. Hospitals and many physicians’ offices are less than five minutes away from Brookdale Monterey. There are several shopping centers within a five mile radius for convenient shopping. Brookdale Monterey is a secured, memory care neighborhood and purpose-built community.
The design and layout of the building are specific to memory care residents. There is a large outside area complete with gazebo and greenhouse for avid gardeners. The outside area also features a winding walking path through the cottonwood trees surrounding the community. The community’s home-like atmosphere is enhanced by the established neighborhood nearby. Our residents can select a private apartment or make a new friend via our friendship suites. Residents will find several living areas, warm sun rooms, a beautiful courtyard and plenty of space to explore at Brookdale Monterey.
Strong, Caring Professional Relationships
At Brookdale Monterey, we work very closely with local healthcare providers on a daily basis. Visitors to our community will often see the many home health agencies, hospice providers and therapists we work with to ensure that residents are receiving the complete care they need.
The staff at Brookdale Monterey is compassionate and quick to respond to our residents and families’ needs. We have several long-term employees who have been with the community since the doors first opened. Our staff is specially trained in Join Their Journey techniques to help each resident reach their utmost potential every day.
Our Community Lifestyle
A Wonderful, Active Lifestyle
Activity is key to the success of our “Join Their Journey” program. Our activity program includes larger group events as well as individual one-on-one activities. A common expression heard around Brookdale Monterey is “everything is an activity” and we encourage our residents to take part in the normal activities of daily living to achieve a sense of self-worth. Music and live entertainment are a frequent occurrence as well as visitors from the animal kingdom. We encourage our residents to remain active with neighborhood strolls and daily exercise classes. A resident favorite is the weekly outing to a surprise location – Dairy Queen for ice cream, Sonic for a coke, or a tour of Christmas lights in Ransom Canyon.
Partnering with the Community
We provide monthly support groups for our community and work closely with local churches as a resource for memory care education. Quarterly, we offer the Virtual Dementia Tour at Quail Ridge to provide caregivers an opportunity to experience the life of a dementia resident.
We provide three delicious meals per day and also offer three snacks per day. Our residents often participate in “snacktivities” – preparing chocolate chip cookies, blueberry muffins and many other favorite treats. We also offer finger foods for convenience and those residents who like to snack on the go. Remaining properly hydrated is a very important piece of our program and various juices and fresh water are available at all times.
