It all begins with a personal service assessment. We take the time to listen to our residents so we can understand their needs.

Deeply rooted in a person-centered approach, our Clare Bridge Alzheimer’s and dementia care program focuses on sustaining feelings of belonging, purpose and safety while seeking to preserve a sense of self. The Clare Bridge concept has evolved over the last 25 years through research and innovations in quality dementia care. Over the years, our teams have cared for thousands of individuals with dementia and their families.
The Clare Bridge Daily Path provides residents with a structured routine of activities that help maintain their abilities and encourage the use of their current skills. It gives each resident purpose and a sense of security that they are “right where they need to be.”
Designed by a team of culinary associates, experts in memory care and registered dieticians, our unique dining program promotes a positive and successful dining experience through dementia-friendly menus, individualized dining assistance, and a supportive dining environment that encourages familiarity and socialization.
Providing excellent Alzheimer’s and dementia care is a complex task requiring specialized skills. Our Alzheimer’s and dementia care associates complete initial training, then participate in continuing education courses to remain current in the best practices and approaches for care of individuals with dementia.
Life takes many turns, especially as it relates to health. On those occasions it is reassuring to know you have access to specialized care right here on campus. We offer licensed and Medicare-certified skilled nursing care with well-appointed private and semi-private accommodations.
Whether it’s a short-term respite visit while recovering from surgery or a long-term rehabilitation after a joint replacement, we have the services and care you need, when you need them. Our skilled nursing team provides round-the-clock nursing care and our on-site rehabilitation professionals offer physical, occupational and speech therapy to help patients enhance or regain their independence.
