Memory loss doesn’t have to mean all is lost. If you and your family are looking for memory care and support, Brookdale Ithaca can help. Our Alzheimer's and dementia care community, also known as Clare Bridge, is rooted in “a person-centered approach”. That means we help our residents find a sense of belonging and purpose while also helping them preserve who they are.
We are also adding a new Clare Bridge Crossings program in a new wing which is designed for individuals in the early stages of Alzheimer’s or dementia. This program can a stepping stone between assisted living and our Clare Bridge program. Residents stay engaged with a gentle daily structure of planned activities like dancing and watercolor art classes to help them maintain their abilities and encourage the use of their current skills. And with several floor plans to choose from, you and your family will be able to find just the right studio apartment to call home. Best of all, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that trained staff is on-site 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
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.
