Memory loss doesn’t have to mean all is lost. If you and your family are looking for a memory care community, Brookdale Clinton can help. Our Alzheimer's and dementia care community, also known as Clare Bridge, is rooted in a person-centered approach. That means we help our residents find a sense of belonging and purpose while also helping them preserve who they are.
Where state-of-the-art care meets a passion for painting, residents stay engaged with a gentle daily structure of planned activities to help them maintain their abilities and encourage the use of their current skills. Brain games, dancing, cooking classes and music programs are just a few of the ways our residents enjoy their days. Along with our programming, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that trained staff is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to be alerted to an emergency.

Clare Bridge Solace is designed to meet the special needs of residents in the advanced stages of dementia.
ActivitiesOur memory care environments feature areas of the community that are set up for safe engagement in gardening, kitchen work, handyman help, and other household and normal daily tasks. Life skills activities provide a sense of purpose, meaning and belonging as residents complete tasks related to everyday life. Your family member can enjoy spending sunny days outside in our large enclosed courtyard or meeting up with friends in the game room to work on a puzzle. Or they can join a cooking demonstration in the community kitchen. And residents love our convenient on-site beauty salon and barbershop for hair appointments.
DiningDid you know people living with dementia are at a greater risk for poor nutrition and weight loss? That’s why we use mealtime as an opportunity to offer healthy menu choices and create a sense of belonging. With our unique dining program, your family member will enjoy dementia-friendly menus with familiar and easy-to-manage selections, small dining rooms with consistent pre-selected seating and personal dining assistance as needed. We also keep mealtimes very routine to help alleviate any confusion or added stress. All residents sit together at the same time and same table each day.
Our memory care program is deeply rooted in a person-centered approach. We offer the necessary resources and nurturing staff to care for those with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.
