Our staff takes pride in their work and are very patient and compassionate about senior care. Residents come first and the staff gives them choices so that they can stay independent for as long as possible. Respect and dignity is shown to each individual that walks in the door.
Our staff is skilled and trained to deliver Assisted Living and Memory Care. Here’s a little bit about our approach to these two care options:
Along with providing excellent care, our community has many features to make your stay enjoyable. Our three story building is surrounded with beautiful landscaping and outdoor pathways, providing opportunities for residents to go on walks.
We have several sunporch areas where senios can kick up their feet, relax and socialize with other guests. One of those areas is in our memory care neighborhood, and from the sunroom our residents can access the courtyard, which features a security system designed to ensure safety.
Our programs and events are specifically designed for seniors and take into account residents’ personal interests, hobbies and passions. Programs that provide quality-of-life for our residents include weekly bocce ball tournaments, wheel of fortune, the quilt club, painting lessons, spending time in our vegetable garden, live entertainment, fishing trips, shopping trips, exercise every day and of course bingo.
In addition to our daily activities, we like to have special celebrations perhaps for a holiday or birthday, or for no reason at all. Our aim is to get residents together and having fun. For example, we have a yearly Mardi Gras party, a luau in the summer, and a craft show in the fall that features crafts by local artisans as well as creations made by our own residents.
Brookdale Orland Park provides fine dining for all of our residents. Our tables are set for each meal with china and glassware. We use beautiful linen table cloths and napkins with fresh flowers as centerpieces each week.
We have a special couples dinner quarterly for couples that reside at the community and for the spouses of residents that live offsite. A private dining room is also available and can be reserved for intimate dinners with family members.
At Brookdale Orland Park, we can provide you with two specialized forms of care: Assisted Living and Memory Care. Both are designed to cater to the individual, with customized care plans that can fit your personal situation.
Sometimes you may need extra support with daily tasks. At Brookdale Orland Park, we offer Assisted Living care so you can receive the right kind of assistance — when you need it.
In order to assess your personal needs, we’ll first do a service assessment. During the assessment, we take time to listen to you and your care needs. Based on that, we will establish clinical, dining and programs that work specifically for you.
Through years of experience serving seniors, we have developed a process that allows us to customize personal care plans for our Assisted Living residents. Your customized care plan means you only pay for the services you need and want, giving you the flexibility to change your plan.
Our community is pleased to provide Clare Bridge Place programs and a secured environment for those who have Alzheimers or other types of dementia.
Clare Bridge programs have evolved over more than 25 years of continually embracing the latest research and innovations in the delivery of quality dementia care and are built on four key components:
We understand the importance of maintaining familiar daily routines for Alzheimer’s, dementia and memory care seniors. And we work to incorporate this into our Memory Care.
