As a continuing care retirement community, Brookdale Carmel Valley offers residents an active lifestyle with a selection of care options to meet changing needs. From assisted living and Alzheimer’s and dementia care to rehabilitation and skilled nursing, transitioning between levels of care is simple.
There may come a time when you or your loved one may need additional help with daily tasks. We offer assisted living care so you’ll be prepared, if or when you need more assistance.
It all begins with a personal service assessment. We take the time to listen to our residents so we can understand their needs. Then we establish clinical, dining and program support that works for them in a meaningful way. Your customized care plan means you only pay for the services you need and want, giving you the flexibility to change your plan.
We provide care that balances independence with assistance and delivers service with compassion, understanding and respect. With comfortable, elegant accommodations and an impressive line of features and amenities, Brookdale residents enjoy life with the confidence of knowing we are here, partnering with you and your family, to customize solutions that support your needs as they evolve.
Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care
Deeply rooted in a person-centered approach, our Clare Bridge Alzheimer’s and dementia care program focuses on sustaining feelings of belonging, purpose and safety while seeking to preserve a sense of self. The Clare Bridge concept has evolved over the last 25 years through research and innovations in quality dementia care. Over the years, our teams have cared for thousands of individuals with dementia and their families.
The Clare Bridge Daily Path provides residents with a structured routine of activities that help maintain their abilities and encourage the use of their current skills. It gives each resident purpose and a sense of security that they are “right where they need to be.”
Designed by a team of culinary associates, experts in memory care and registered dieticians, our unique dining program promotes a positive and successful dining experience through dementia-friendly menus, individualized dining assistance, and a supportive dining environment that encourages familiarity and socialization.
Providing excellent Alzheimer’s and dementia care is a complex task requiring specialized skills. Our Alzheimer’s and dementia care associates complete initial training, then participate in continuing education courses to remain current in the best practices and approaches for care of individuals with dementia.
Life takes many turns, especially as it relates to health. On those occasions it is reassuring to know you have access to specialized care right here on campus. We offer licensed and Medicare-certified skilled nursing care with well-appointed private and semi-private accommodations.
Whether it’s a short-term respite visit while recovering from surgery or a long-term rehabilitation after a joint replacement, we have the services and care you need, when you need them. Our skilled nursing team provides round-the-clock nursing care and our on-site rehabilitation professionals offer physical, occupational and speech therapy to help patients enhance or regain their independence.
We partner with you and your family to create a care plan that honors your individual preferences and needs. We treat the whole person — mind, body and spirit — with compassion and attentive care.
