Great Food and Entertainment Options
At Brookdale Dover, our friendly staff is here to provide a helping hand, but only when you need it. Residents get to decide how they’d like to spend their free time, and they have the opportunity to offer suggestions through the activity and food council meetings held monthly, which is a forum to discuss topics such as activity options and food selection. From live entertainment, a trip to the beach, or simply sitting under the shade of a tree, we want to make you feel at home and a member of our family.
We offer a wide range of activities each month, including community outings to the agricultural museum, Biggs Museum, Silver Lake, country trips to Byler’s General Store for ice cream, and blueberry picking at Fifer’s Orchard just to name a few. In addition to our outings and daily resident social activities, Brookdale Dover hosts several family and friend events throughout the year. Some of our featured events include the annual Easter egg hunt, a tasty Mother’s Day brunch, a popular Luau and Crab Feast, and a festive Christmas celebration.
Every meal is prepared to be enjoyable, nutritious, and delicious. All meals are served restaurant-style in our main dining room. There are always options, and we can assist with special diets such as diabetic, low sodium, and allergies.

Our Clare Bridge Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care program was created over 25 years ago and continually embraces current research in dementia care, coupled with the experience of caring for thousands of people with dementia.
Our highly-trained staff takes this approach with every one of our residents. We are committed to having our memory care be centered on the person. Our program strives to make each person feel a sense of belonging and purpose.
We offer a gentle daily structure (seven days per week) choreographed with a minimum of six programs per day. All are designed to maintain the resident’s abilities and to encourage the use of their current skills.
Our dining program was designed by a team of culinary associates, experts in dementia care, and registered dieticians. Our goal through the dining program is to support the resident’s opportunity to enjoy and master the dining experience. Some of the program’s specialized aspects include:
- Dementia-Friendly Menus — providing diverse offerings that help prevent weight-loss. Selections are easy to manage, familiar and appealing to the senses.
- Individualized Dining Assistance — includes evaluating each resident to determine the level of assistance needed during dining, with the goal of preserving their use of utensils for as long as possible.
- The Supportive Dining Environment — which incorporates small dining rooms with consistent seating to support the challenges of those with dementia, this encourages familiarity and socialization while supporting the needs of the residents through the assignment of resident care assistants. Music, centerpieces, warm, scented wash towels and fresh linens enhance the dining experience.
