ActivitiesDaily activities at Brookdale Portage are devised to enjoyably stimulate physical and mental workouts. These include such sports as balloon volleyball, chair yoga or cornhole, and socializing at parties, playing trivia games, reminiscing about the old days and painting. These activities are fun, and our residents love them. But each is part of a carefully designed care program to encourage your loved one and help them live their best life.

We use mealtime as an opportunity to offer healthy menu choices and create a sense of belonging. The program, designed by dementia care experts, culinary associates and registered dietitians, encourages your loved one to eat their freshly prepared meals as independently as possible.
