Memory Care at Brookdale Nine Mile
Our memory care focuses on creating a personalized experience. That means there is no one-size-fits-all approach to care here. Techniques that work for one resident may not work for another, so we tailor care to each resident and help address their needs with consistent care assignments whenever possible. Whether it’s our Clare Bridge program for mid to late stages of dementia or our Solace program for the advanced stages of dementia, we have purposeful programs with the compassionate care you and your family need. Here are some of the programs and services 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.
ActivitiesSeniors shouldn’t have to trade away their lives to get the security that comes with a memory care community. At Brookdale Nine Mile, your family member has a huge range of activities available to them. Our Forties and Fifties music nights, Friday morning coffee groups, nature walks, daily sessions of our signature fitness program, B-Fit, and more are all on the schedule. Plus, because they’re a part of a community full of seniors also finding ways to live their best lives, they’ll have a built-in social group to enjoy their newly rewarding life.
DiningTo help alleviate any confusion or added stress, we keep mealtimes routine for our memory care community. Memory care residents typically do not eat large amounts of food at one time, so to ensure they have a sufficient calorie intake, our menu includes entrée choices with plenty of snacks available throughout the day. We also offer finger foods, as some residents cannot use utensils, and we also provide dining assistance as needed to help your loved one preserve their dining skills.
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.
