Instead of the stress and isolation that comes from living with dementia at home, at Brookdale Goodlettsville, you’ll have a whole team of specialists caring for you or your loved one with our Alzheimer’s and dementia care. From our building design to our carefully selected staff and specialized programming and management, we focus on the individual needs of each resident and family we serve.
Our community is located nearby our sister Brookdale community, which offers assisted living services. Brookdale Goodlettsville blends the unique spirit of our community and its residents with our award-winning, evidence-based programs to provide customized, integrated care designed to support the pursuit of living well, and to help seniors reach all the places that each life can go.

Those living with early, middle or late stages of Alzheimer’s and other dementia need distinct support. That’s why we tailor care to each resident and help ensure their needs are well-known with consistent care assignments whenever possible. These assignments allow us to offer a more personalized memory care experience. Our relationship-rich care encourages familiarity and helps us anticipate your loved one’s unmet needs and lessen behavioral symptoms. Here are some of the programs we offer:
Clare Bridge is our exclusive brand of dementia care created more than 30 years ago.
Clare Bridge Solace is designed to meet the special needs of residents in the advanced stages of dementia.
ActivitiesOur residents benefit from devotional services, chair yoga, painting and sing-alongs, as well as outdoor activities like gardening and walking club. Because memory care shouldn’t mean giving up on living life to the fullest. And we know how meaningful social connections are, so your loved one will be paired up with a social circle made up of other residents with similar skills to create a feeling of fitting in. From exploring hobbies both old and new to creative pursuits, we provide a wide range of dementia-friendly ways to stay active and engaged.
DiningAs part of our award-winning dining program, we use prompts, adapted recipes, dementia-friendly menus and specialized table settings to help your loved one enjoy mealtime. To help alleviate added stress or confusion, we keep mealtimes routine. Your family member will sit with familiar people at the same time and at the same table each day. Plus three home-style meals are served daily in our dining area, and delicious snacks are available throughout the day. And our care associates are trained to address dining challenges, such as handling utensils or difficulty swallowing.
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.
