What Our Memory Care Community Can Offer You
Just because someone you love is experiencing memory loss, it doesn't mean that they should have to sacrifice their quality of life. Our residents spend their days in a safe place, surrounded by familiar people who encourage them to enjoy life, experience feelings of belonging and purpose, and maintain their current skills through our daily path of engagement.
Here are just a few of the ways we help the seniors in our memory care programs make the most of this season of their lives:
A Secure Setting
Our community was built specifically for residents who need added care and attention, so at Brookdale Burlington, safety comes first. A secure environment is an essential part of good memory care. With an emergency alert system and enclosed walking areas, our residents living with dementia or other cognitive challenges can safely explore their surroundings. You’ll also find comfort in knowing there is trained staff available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to be alerted to an emergency.
A Warm and Welcoming Atmosphere
Memory care residents thrive in an environment that feels comfortable and familiar, so our community features peaceful surroundings and a cozy setting to recreate the kind of home life your loved one has always enjoyed. Our easy-to-navigate floor plans and extra details, such as soothing wall colors, provide all the comforts of home. Private apartments can contain your family member’s own furnishings, mementos and photos so they’re surrounded with familiar, much-loved items. And we’re pet friendly, because we know furry friends are always part of the family.
Consistent Care Assignments
We carefully select our staff, and we invest in quality training and education to help keep our care team up-to-date on the latest dementia care techniques. Our attentive staff handles chores such as laundry and housekeeping while providing support throughout the day, whether taking medication, during meals, bathing or more. We also strive to provide your family member with the same care partners whenever possible to encourage familiarity and relationship-rich care. Because your loved one deserves to experience a full life in a place where they are well known.
Our memory care program focuses on sustaining feelings of belonging and purpose while seeking to preserve a sense of self. Our daily path of engagement provides your loved one with a structured routine of activities that help maintain their abilities and encourage the use of their current skills. Activities include programs such as discussion groups as a mental workout and daily physical exercise, such as dancing or B-Fit. This routine gives your family member purpose and a sense of security that they are right where they need to be.
Personalized Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care
We meet your family member right where they are, helping live their best life with courage, independence and dignity. To support a person-centered relationship, our care associates get to know your loved one’s histories, routines, and preferences. This helps provide them with a sense of stability and comfort that they are well-known where they live. Our care programs are tailored to each individual and level of dementia, meaning they can vary significantly among residents.
