One of the first things you’ll notice when you visit is our warm, family atmosphere. It’s the kind of thing that sets us apart, and it’s only possible because we have a staff that truly loves what they do — taking care of our residents. But they’re not just friendly — they’re also highly trained, professional medical personnel ready to step in the very moment you need them.
Our staff works with those dealing with memory loss and helps them maintain their independence and dignity for as long as possible. We offer custom programs that provide loving care and meaningful interaction, resulting in our residents experiencing moments of success daily.
Our community has been specifically designed for those dealing with memory loss. So we can provide you with a secure and safe environment filled with apartments that have been adapted to fit seniors with forms of Dementia.
Life at Brookdale Portage
Our community features peaceful surroundings and a home-like setting designed to re-create environments people have enjoyed throughout their lives. Interior spaces are scaled and decorated like those of a private home and enclosed walking areas give residents the opportunity to safely explore their surroundings.
We want our residents to enjoy life’s precious moments, and we encourage them to continue engaging in different interests and activities. We provide activities that range from physical fitness to recreational pursuits to educational and spiritual programs. Each one is designed to stimulate, entertain and enrich the lives of each resident. Exercise programs are tailored to meet each resident’s needs.
Our Excellent Dining Program
Since we specialize in memory care, we are able to cultivate a dining experience that is geared toward our residents. We have a unique dietary program that was designed by dementia care experts, culinary associates, and registered dieticians. The program’s goal is for our residents to enjoy the dining experience.
We are on hand to assist in any way they need, perhaps using utensils, but our aim is to encourage our seniors to eat as independently as possible. Our in-house culinary staff provides freshly prepared meals and snacks with a rotating menu.

Alzheimer’s and dementia care is a very specialized form of care, and we are dedicated to providing quality assistance to each one of our seniors. Discover more details about our unique, state-of-the-art program that can help your senior enjoy daily moments of success.
Our staff takes a person-centered approach to our memory care residents. We view all residents as individuals, and we take time to get to know each one of our seniors — their likes, dislikes, interests, family history, and much more. We believe this personalization allows us to care for our seniors with a gentle hand and kind heart. Something we strive to do everyday.
Our goal is to help residents maintain their abilities and encourage the use of their current skills. And we do all of this while respecting our residents and treating them with the upmost dignity. To help our residents be successful, we offer a gentle daily structure where residents enjoy at least six programs daily. The programs can vary but all are designed to provide daily moments of success for our seniors.
A few examples of programs are:
- Dementia-Friendly Menus that provide diverse offerings designed to help prevent weight-loss. Selections are easy to manage, familiar and appealing to the senses.
- Individualized Dining Assistance includes evaluating each resident to determine the level of prompting assistance needed to preserve their use of utensils as long as possible.
- The Supportive Dining Environment, which incorporates small dining rooms with consistent seating to support the challenges of those with dementia, this encourages familiarity and socialization while supporting the needs of the residents through the assignment of resident care assistants. Music, centerpieces, warm, scented wash towels and fresh linens enhance the dining experience.
