We do one thing, and we do it extremely well. Located in scenic Gig Harbor, Washington, Brookdale Harbor Bay is a premier senior living community offering specialized Alzheimer’s and dementia care. Because we specialize in one kind of care, we’re able to provide industry-leading care in a setting that’s built from the ground up for the unique requirements of dementia care. We’re also able to provide highly-trained staff specially chosen for their ability to work with seniors with Alzheimer’s and other cognitive challenges. But we haven’t skimped on the comfort, as we think you’ll find our community feels just like home sweet home.
The city of Gig Harbor shares a rich maritime history with boat building and commercial fishing. Residents and their families enjoy the sights of this charming harbor town with its local wineries and eclectic farm-to-table restaurants. We think our town is a great backdrop for a great senior life.

ActivitiesEach day at Brookdale Harbor Bay brings a new list of indoor and outdoor activities. Fitness classes, scarf dancing, balloon art, salon visits, garden club, and live music—each of these are indicative of the kind of activities our residents enjoy. Our residents also enjoy chair yoga, baking, watercolor painting and trivia games. And because we also provide each resident a peer group of other seniors in a similar place on their journey, your loved one will always have someone to share their days with.
DiningOur dining program includes everything from dementia-friendly menus and nutritious, delicious meals to personalized dining assistance for those who need a little help during mealtimes. Residents in our community typically sit down to eat at the same time and in the same seat to avoid unnecessary stress and confusion and to promote as much independence as possible. We also support your family member’s interest in food by enhancing the dining experience with music, beautiful centerpieces, warm and scented hand towels and fresh linens.
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.
