Red Bluff offers a friendly, home-like environment, which you feel as soon as you enter our front door. Cheerful smiles from our caring, professional staff greet you everyday, and a peaceful setting creates a wonderful living environment for residents. With many planned activities and dining services, there are numerous opportunities to make new friends, right here in your home.
We are about an hour’s drive away from Mt. Shasta and Mt. Lassen. Both of these are visible from our front porch, and you will frequently find our residents enjoying the mountain vistas when the weather is favorable. Our community offers various sizes of senior apartments, and all are complete with a kitchenette, private bathroom and individual climate control and emergency call systems.
An array of social, educational and cultural programs encourages residents to rekindle their past interests and explore new ones with friends and neighbors. We are very close to Highway 5 which runs north/south throughout California, and just minutes away from downtown Red Bluff where you will find a variety of antique, clothing and jewelry stores, as well as some great local restaurants.
Our calendar is always filled with a variety of activities designed to meet the needs of our seniors. We have daily exercise classes, games, crafts, weekly hymn sings with a local singer/pianist, bible studies, live entertainment by local musicians, and regular visits by local schools and a pet therapy group. All activities are created around the passions, hobbies and talents of each resident, and we work hard to provide numerous choices everyone will enjoy.
Substantial investments in our culinary program and staffing, allow us to provide mealtime experiences that set our communities apart from the competition. From Culinary Arts Training for chefs, to select seasonings and bakery options, Brookdale has created one of the industry’s leading dining services. Our fine dining experience is prepared by a trained chef and receives nutritional support and recommendations from a registered dietician.
Three restaurant-style meals are served each day in the group dining room and snacks are provided throughout the day. We continue to meet the nutritional needs of residents with dining choices that promote their health and well-being. Each meal offers a selection of delicious choices, sensational service and we always accommodate special restrictions and requests.
To help alleviate any confusion or added stress, we keep mealtimes very routine for our Memory Care community. Residents all sit together at the same time and same table each day. Meals are served on colorful plates and tablecloths so they can more easily distinguish their food. We also provide easy-to-eat snacks between meals, helping to ensure these residents get the nutrition and calorie count they need.
Our residents and families have the security of knowing that St. Elizabeth’s Hospital and several medical clinics are very close to our community. We also have many home healthcare companies that provide physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, nursing and hospice care as needed. Brookdale is dedicated to maintain professional relationships within these organizations to support you and your loved one.
We are selective when choosing staff to join our team and serve our residents, and only those with a caring heart and experience in working with seniors are accepted into our family. Red Bluff is proud of the longevity of qualified and nurturing caregivers, medical assistants and executive management, and our personalized approach encourages each person to continue to live as they please, while respecting individual preferences.
Brookdale has a monthly support group meeting that caters to people with family members dealing with Memory Care issues. This involves our residents and their families, as well as people in the surrounding area who still care for their loved one at home. We collaborate with the Alzheimer’s Association on presentations and participate in fundraising during the annual Memory Walk event.
Brookdale Red Bluff offers two levels of care for our residents — assisted living and memory care.
As the population ages, more people are discovering senior and the peace of mind we offer. Our community’s approach focuses on being a trusted partner and listening to your needs, understanding the life you want for yourself or a loved one and customizing a solution that puts that life within reach.
Assisted Living provides personal assistance and support with daily activities and services needed, such as medication management, meals, bathing and dressing, as well as amenities for housekeeping and linen services, transportation and recreations. Our individualized care plans provide an ideal blend of convenience and support, with respect for personal preferences.
Memory Care was created over 25 years ago and continually embraces current research in Alzheimer’s and dementia care, coupled with the experience of caring for thousands of people with dementia. Associates help residents create daily moments of success, offering opportunities for them to experience a sense of purpose and meaning. A gently daily structure is provided to help maintain and encourage current skills.
Memory Care at Brookdale offers programs and a secure environment for those with Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia. We believe that no matter where an individual is in their life, each has the right to live in a dignified manner and enjoy meaningful experiences every day.
Deeply rooted in a person-centered approach, our program focuses on sustaining feelings of belonging and purpose while seeking to preserve a sense of self. Providing excellent dementia care is a complex task that requires ongoing guidance and teaching for our staff members. All of our highly trained associates receive initial and on-going training in proper techniques, approach and care for seniors with dementia.
An established set of protocols and techniques enables our team to intervene when challenging behaviors resulting from dementia arise. Our whole-community philosophy is the key that empowers staff members to identify any unmet needs and be a part of the solution.
