Our community offers a home like environment, which is ideal for individuals with memory loss. Our purpose built community incorporates special features such as large circular paths designed to lead residents to areas of activity, enclosed outdoor courtyards, small spaces decorated like home and shadow boxes for residents personal mementos to identify their personal space.
Our community features peaceful surroundings and a home-like setting designed to re-create environments people have enjoyed throughout their lives.

Living an Optimum Life
Brookdale’s unique Optimum Life approach to resident activities balances six key dimensions of wellness — purposeful, emotional, physical, social, spiritual and intellectual. Intended as a journey of self-examination and discovery, it includes services, features and benefits that allow each resident to reach these goals, regardless of real or perceived limitations.
Professional and Caring Staff
Individuals working with Alzheimer’s and dementia residents must have compassion and understanding. Our staff are carefully selected and trained to manage the challenges associated with dementia, which can sometimes be difficult. The Clare Bridge Daily Path provides a gentle structure to each day that targets specific needs of those with Alzheimer’s and various types and levels of dementia. It features:
- Morning Mental Workout – Daily late morning mental exercises including discussions, brain stimulating games, and reminiscing.
- Daily Physical Activity – A variety of exercise opportunities including group exercises, walking programs and dancing.
- Daily Life Skills – Individual or group activities that provide a sense of purpose, meaning, and belonging.
- Person Centered Life Enrichment Programming – Activities are designed using the resident’s own social history information as a foundation.
Our staff is trained to understand and manage unpredictable behaviors and the need for an individualized approach for every resident, depending on the progression of the disease. We understand that creative problem solving is needed when providing dignity and quality of life to individuals with memory loss. For this we have dedicated dementia care specialists on staff to support our staff, residents and families.
