What Our Memory Care Community Can Offer You
Just because someone you love is experiencing memory loss, it doesn't mean that they should have to sacrifice their quality of life. Our residents spend their days in a secure environment, surrounded by familiar people who encourage them to enjoy life, experience feelings of belonging and purpose, and help to maintain their current skills through our daily path of engagement.
Here are just a few of the ways we help the seniors in our memory care programs make the most of this season of their lives:
A Secure Setting
Because Brookdale Roseville specializes in memory care, our purpose-built community incorporates special features such as way-finding cues, easy-to-navigate rooms and calming colors. Memory care residents thrive in an environment that feels comfortable and familiar, so our community envelopes them in peaceful surroundings and a cozy setting to re-create the kind of home life they’ve always enjoyed. With secured entries and exits and an enclosed courtyard and garden, our residents remain secure while having a sense of freedom and independence.
A Warm and Welcoming Atmosphere
While our common areas are designed for socializing, our private apartments offer privacy and a quiet place. And you and your family can choose from a selection of floor plans. Filled with natural light, our apartments are a place for your loved one to be surrounded by the comfort of their own familiar furnishings, family photos and treasured keepsakes. Does your loved one have a beloved four-legged friend? We’re very pet-friendly and would love to welcome it into our community.
Consistent Care Assignments
Your loved one deserves to experience a full life in a place where they are well known. That’s why we strive to provide consistent care assignments so that your family member is cared for by the same Brookdale associates whenever possible. This encourages familiarity and relationship-rich care. We also invest in training and education to help our staff stay current on the latest dementia care techniques. Not only will our team take on chores like housekeeping and laundry, but they will also provide support throughout the day with medication reminders, dressing, bathing and more.
The Clare Bridge Daily Path provides residents with a structured yet fun routine of activities — discussions for mental workouts, dancing for physical exercise — that help maintain their abilities and encourage the use of their current skills. The daily path is carefully structured to give each resident purpose and a sense of security that they are right where they need to be. We offer your loved one engagement that provides stimulation and challenge but remains failure-free.
Personalized Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care
We build relationships with trust, loving concern and a sense of family. Our care associates get to know our residents’ histories, routines, and preferences to support person-centered care through all stages of the disease. It helps us build bonds with your loved one and offers them a sense of stability and comfort that they are well-known where they live. Strong relationships allow our care associates to focus on anticipating a resident’s unmet needs.

Assisted living communities are designed for seniors who are relatively independent, but they need some assistance with daily tasks, like bathing, dressing and managing medication. Assisted living is ideal for those who are looking to make the most of their retirement by living closer to other people in the same stage of life, while getting access to quality care, great onsite amenities, and interesting activities happening at the community.
Memory care communities are specifically designed for seniors living with Alzheimer's or dementia. They feature safe and secure environments where staff can closely monitor the health of the residents. You'll also find programs, activities, and events that are designed to help memory care residents work on their cognitive abilities, while also getting to enjoy passions and hobbies. Staff typically are specially trained to provide the quality care needed for seniors with memory loss.
Memory care features can vary from location to location. Sometimes they are stand-alone communities, and sometimes they are part of a larger community with more levels of care. They often include safety features like emergency alert systems, enclosed courtyards and keypad entry; personalized programming; easy-to-navigate features like color-coded hallways and spacious hallways; and accommodations for seniors in both the early and late stages of dementia.
As much as we wish there was a cure for Alzheimer’s, the best thing a memory care community can do is provide opportunities for your loved one to maintain or experience improvement in their current skills. Research has shown that living in a community can reduce the amount of medication a resident needs, increase their overall health and wellness with proper nutrition and exercise, and provide increased social interaction that leads to lower levels of depression and isolation.
The cost of memory care depends on several different factors, including location, floor plan and how much care your loved one needs. The good news is that our residents only pay for the services they actually need.
This is one of those tricky questions that only you can answer. It’s important to do your research before coming to a final decision. But we can tell you that as the disease progresses, the amount of time, energy and resources required to provide quality care will increase. This often creates more stress for the caregiver and could compromise the otherwise high quality of life your loved one could enjoy in a memory care community.
Our communities incorporate several features to help keep your loved one safe, like including emergency alert systems in each apartment. The majority of our communities also have enclosed outdoor courtyards so residents can explore in a secure environment.
Many caregivers think that a private suite is always the better option for their loved one, but research has shown the value of companionship for seniors living with Alzheimer's or dementia. Sharing an apartment with a roommate can sometimes give residents a greater sense of purpose and lead to deep and lasting friendships. Companion suites can also be more budget-friendly!
Most memory care communities provide educational materials and outreach for families exploring senior living options, but you still need to do your research. Consider what specific items are on your wish list, taking into consideration your loved one’s individual needs and any activities, treatments or accommodations that you believe is important.
