Our residents enjoy many varied activities both on campus and away on outings in the local area. From games and arts and crafts, to social and family gatherings, we strive to keep a busy schedule that is fulfilling to all.
Our community provides residents many common areas such as our family room, which is a great place to visit or entertain with family or friends. Our enclosed, outdoor courtyard provides a relaxing setting for our resident’s to enjoy their surroundings. It’s the perfect way for our seniors to be outside, but yet in a controlled environment. Green thumbs can tend to their favorite plants in our outdoor gardening areas, which offer raised plant and flower beds for optimal comfort.

At Brookdale Mount Vernon Drive we provide three delicious wholesome meals daily. We also provide three between meal snacks daily to assure that our memory care residents receive proper nutrition. All menu options are selected by a registered dietician to optimize nutritional value, and an audit is done on a monthly basis to provide recommendations for any needed changes.
Understanding that many individuals with memory loss have special dietary needs, we offer a full menu of finger foods and adaptive devices and document food preferences for every resident. Resident seating is pre-selected to insure a pleasurable dining experience. Meals and snacks become a social event and we encourage family and friends to join their loved ones for a great meal.
