Since we offer two levels of care, Assisted Living and Memory care, we are able to continue serving you if your needs change during your stay with us. Here’s a short description about how we approach Assisted Living and Memory Care:
When you pull up to Brookdale Florence there is a feeling of southern charm the minute you see our community. From our front porch with the rocking chairs to walkways in our community, we created an atmosphere that’s warm and welcoming, making you feel at home when you enter our community.
We have many amenities to make your stay with us extremely comfortable. You can spend time relaxing in our garden and by the pond, which has a wonderful waterfall feature. We provide housekeeping, laundry service, transportation and activities daily at your choosing. Brookdale Florence also offers a beauty shop on sight.
Our Activities Director has many fun activities planned including exercise classes, crafts, beading, cooking classes, and more. We provide a variety of games during the day, like bingo, and we take our residents on scheduled field trips weekly.
Local community groups will often come in to perform with singing, dancing and bible study groups from local churches. We have family night once a month when the residents invite their family here to enjoy good food, entertainment and good fellowship.
Our dining services are provided by our staff. We serve the residents restaurant style. We provide three meals a day including breakfast which has a large assortment of food and lunch and dinner always has two different choices on their menus. We also provide bed time snacks and refreshment stations all through the building during the day.
At our community, we can offer you or your loved one skilled Assisted Living or Memory Care. With each level of care, our staff is dedicated to supporting and caring for the individual’s needs. Whatever those may be.
Sometimes you may need a little extra support during the day, perhaps for bathing, taking medication or getting dressed. But even with that little bit of support, you still want to maintain a level of independence. That’s where our staff can provide the right balance of care.
Our community provides care that combines independence with assistance and delivers service with compassion, understanding and respect. It’s all tailored to fit you and your needs. We work with each of our residents, understanding their needs first and then crafting together a plan that fits their situation. You only pay for the services that you need.
We also monitor your situation and needs during your stay, and can easily adjust plans at any time. But our goal is to provide you with an individualized experience, and make you feel like you have a partner with us. Our residents enjoy life with the confidence of knowing we are here for them, in whatever way they need.
For our Memory Care, we strive to help maintain residents’ abilities and encourage their current skills. We believe that each individual deserves to be treated with dignity and respect, and you’ll see that our staff strives to do that every day.
We have a state-of-the-art approach to Alzheimer’s and Dementia care, which has been perfected throughout the years. This approach is based on the Clare Bridge concept that utilizes the latest research and innovations to deliver quality Memory Care to seniors. We focus on caring for the individual — working to encourage feelings of belonging, a sense of self, purpose and fulfillment.
From the type of dining we offer to the activities available, we work to engage residents’ mental functions, encourage them to participate in purposeful activities, and involve them in many physical programs. Our goal is to provide opportunities for our seniors to feel a sense of meaning every day.
After undergoing specific training, our staff gently assists residents with daily programs that are designed to maintain a resident’s abilities and encourage the use of their current skills. Programs may include a “Morning Mental Workout” where residents might enjoy brain-stimulating games or discussions, and a Person-Centered Program, which may honor a resident’s past interests and involvements.
