Brookdale Concord Parkway offers a beautiful assisted living and Alzheimer’s and dementia care community for seniors. Located just 30 minutes outside of Charlotte, our bright and welcoming community is designed to help those who need assistance with daily activities, while helping them maintain their privacy, dignity and independence.
With a continuum of care, our residents have the security of knowing they can remain here, in their home, without having to relocate and separate from familiar surroundings and friendships, should their needs change over time. The lifestyle at Brookdale offers everything you need to get the very best out of life, and we do it all in a family-centered environment where loved ones are encouraged to be as involved as possible.
Our family-friendly environment provides common living areas, an inviting dining room and a warm kitchen, which naturally draws people together.
In your private apartment, you’ll have a comfortable and stylish retreat that you can make all your own, with personal furniture, cherished possessions, favorite photos and keepsakes.
Our programs, activities and outings keep life interesting for our residents. For a population that was once busy with full-time work, housekeeping and chores, you now have the unique opportunity to explore new interests, learn a new skill, start a new fitness regime, learn the history and culture of the area, or make a suggestion for a new activity on campus. Residents are able to do what they please and enjoy each day at their own leisure.
Our philosophy is to incorporate not only individual interests, but opportunities that allow residents to make meaningful contributions to each other and the community on a regular basis. An array of social, educational and cultural programs encourages each resident to rekindle their past interests and explore new ones with friends and neighbors.
Whether reading a book from the selection in our library, tending to your favorite plants or flowers in the outdoor gardening area or joining in an arts and crafts project, Concord Parkway feels like home the moment you walk through our doors.
We love taking our seniors out to local restaurants and unique shops and making exciting day excursions. Favorite attractions include visiting the Charlotte Motor Speedway, Memorial Gardens, and the Old Courthouse Theatre and Sea Life Aquarium. Every resident offers something special to our senior living community, and we strive to tailor activities that represent their individual interests, hobbies and talents.
Our community understands all the benefits that pets can offer. We also know that many of our residents can’t imagine life without their furry, four-legged companions. When you make a move to senior living, you shouldn’t have to give up your pet. Not only do they offer companionship, they can also lower the risk for heart disease and help ease any feelings of stress, depression or loneliness.
We understand the importance of good food, which is why our professional chefs create each entree to provide quality nutrition and exceptional flavor. You’ll savor each bite, and have peace of mind knowing that our menu is a balanced selection approved by a registered dietitian, so residents stay healthy and feeling their best.
Substantial investments in our culinary program and staffing, allow us to provide mealtime experiences that set our communities apart from the competition. From a Culinary Arts Training Program for chefs, to our select seasonings and bakery options, Brookdale has created one of the industry’s leading dining services.
Three restaurant-style meals are served each day in the group dining room, with savory snacks provided throughout the day. Each meal offers a selection of delicious choices and exceptional service and we always accommodate special restrictions and requests.
To help alleviate any confusion or added stress, we keep mealtimes very routine for our memory care community. Residents all sit together at the same time and same table each day. Meals are served on colorful plates and tablecloths so they can more easily distinguish their food. We also provide easy-to-eat snacks between meals, helping to ensure these residents get the nutrition and calorie count they need to stay strong and healthy.
Residents can feel safe knowing some of the state’s best medical facilities are all within a short drive. We nurture strong relationships with area hospitals, skilled nursing and rehabilitation centers allowing us to provide a seamless continuum of care for our residents. All of the services we provide are customized to personal and unique needs by creating a way of life that enriches the lives of others through compassion, respect, excellence and integrity.
Brookdale’s family values set us apart from any other senior living community. The true measure of our success is evident when watching the interactions of our staff and residents. We have very close relationships with each person and their families. Concord Parkway is proud of the longevity of qualified and nurturing caregivers, medical assistants and executive management, and our personalized approach encourages each person to continue to live as they please, with the added support our staff delivers.
Discover the peace of mind and comfort that assisted living can offer. Our community’s approach focuses on being a trusted partner and listening to your needs, understanding the life you want for yourself or a loved one and customizing a solution that puts that life within reach.
Brookdale Concord Parkway offers two levels of care:
Assisted living provides personal assistance and support with daily activities and services needed, such as medication management, meals, bathing and dressing, as well as amenities for housekeeping and linen services, transportation and recreations. Our individualized care plans provide an ideal blend of convenience and support, with respect for personal preferences.
Our memory care program was created over 25 years ago and continually embraces current research in Alzheimer’s and dementia care. Guided by the experience of caring for thousands of people with dementia, our associates help residents create daily moments of success, offering opportunities for them to experience a sense of purpose and meaning. A gently daily structure is provided to help maintain and encourage current skills.
Our well-established memory care program, Clare Bridge, offers compassionate care and secure environments for those with Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia. We believe that no matter where an individual is in their life, each has the right to live in a dignified manner and enjoy meaningful experiences every day.
Deeply rooted in a person-centered approach, our program focuses on sustaining feelings of belonging and purpose while seeking to preserve a sense of self. Providing excellent dementia care is a complex task that requires ongoing guidance and teaching for our staff members. All of our highly trained associates receive initial and on-going training in proper techniques, approach and care for seniors with dementia.
An established set of protocols and techniques enables our team to intervene when challenging behaviors resulting from dementia arise. Our whole-community philosophy is the key that empowers staff members to identify any unmet needs and be a part of the solution.
