We are conveniently located between Interstate 5 and California Highway 99, which is south of our State’s capital city. Our community sits in the middle of a nice, family-oriented neighborhood with many community parks and greenbelts within walking distance.
Situated on 5.5 lush acres, Brookdale offers a unique cottage setting with suites that open to a large communal living, dining and country kitchen area. Backyard patios and friendly front porches complete our homelike environment, and we have beautifully landscaped grounds with a courtyard, lovely rose gardens, a gazebo and walking trails.
You can have a cup of coffee and relax on the front porch in the teak rocking chairs before joining one of our many daily activities offered in our always popular community center.
An array of social, educational and cultural programs encourages residents to rekindle their past interests and explore new ones with friends and neighbors. Brookdale offers many planned activities each week and loves taking our seniors for day excursions to the many desirable retail establishments, movie theaters and restaurants within a three mile radius.
Residents can enjoy frequent trips to The Crocker Art Museum, the Jelly Belly Factory, Sacramento River Cats, Sacramento Kings games and local vineyards. All activities are created around the passions, hobbies and talents of each resident.
Substantial investments in our culinary program and staffing, allow us to provide mealtime experiences that set our communities apart from the competition. From Culinary Arts Training for chefs, to select seasonings and bakery options, Brookdale has created one of the industry’s leading dining services. Our fine dining experience is prepared by a trained chef and receives nutritional support and recommendations from a registered dietician.
Three restaurant-style meals are served each day in the group dining room and snacks are provided throughout the day. We continue to meet the nutritional needs of residents with dining choices that promote their health and well-being. Each meal offers a selection of delicious choices, sensational 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.
Brookdale Elk Grove offers two levels of care: Assisted Living and Memory Care.
As the population ages, more people are discovering senior Assisted Living and the peace of mind we 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.
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.
We are dedicated to maintain professional relationships with visiting physician groups, home health agencies and hospice agencies, as well as professional companion companies to support you and your loved one. These relationships allow residents to remain in their home here, and often prevents the need to relocate to a nursing home.
Brookdale’s family values set us apart from any other senior living community. We are selective when choosing staff to join our team and serve our residents. Only those with a caring heart and experience in working with seniors are accepted into our family.
We are 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, while respecting individual preferences.
Memory Care was created over 25 years ago and continually embraces current research in Alzheimer’s and dementia care, coupled with the experience of caring for thousands of people with dementia. 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.
Memory Care at Brookdale offers programs and a secure environment 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.
Our directors are actively involved with local area professional organizations including the Elk Grove Chamber of Commerce and the Sacramento Older Adult Collaborative. Alzheimer’s disease is a cause that is very close to our hearts and we take part in the Alzheimer’s Association’s annual fundraising efforts with their Walk to End Alzheimer’s, bringing awareness and progress to this vital cause.
