Maintaining identity and a strong sense of self comes from living a life filled with meaning, purpose and contributions. At Brookdale Pointe West, we believe having dementia shouldn’t change that. For those with Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia, our community, located on the sunny Gulf Coast in beautiful Bradenton, Fla., offers a safe environment and exceptional memory care.
We gently steer residents through their day with visual reminders and other familiar routines that meet their skill level, enabling them to experience daily moments of success. And you get the peace of mind knowing that our staff is on-site 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to be alerted to an emergency.

When residents move into our community, their world often opens up with new relationships and new activities. Through consistent care assignments whenever possible, our care team helps provide daily experiences for your loved one to create a sense of meaning and purpose and help them feel well-known. 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.
ActivitiesWhen you visit Brookdale Pointe West, you’ll see our residents engaged in such sports as cornhole or bowling, socializing at parties, dancing, reminiscing about the old days, playing trivia games and enjoying music. Exciting day excursions can include visiting our local beaches, restaurants, the Robinson Nature Preserve and the South Florida Museum. These activities are fun, and our residents love them. But each is part of a carefully designed care program to encourage your family member and help them live their best life.
DiningThree home-style meals, along with snacks, are served daily in our dining area and include such flavorsome entrees as tilapia with cucumber and melon salsa, roast turkey and beef stroganoff. We keep mealtimes very routine to help alleviate any confusion or added stress. Your loved one will sit with familiar people at the same time and same table each day, and place settings are designed to enhance and provide ease for each person.
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.
