When space is available, we offer short-term respite stays for Assisted Living guests so family members can enjoy a much-needed rest, or travel out of town for vacation or a business trip, while your loved one enjoys pampered care.
Brookdale is the nation’s largest provider of Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care. At Brookdale San Jose, we provide assistance that goes beyond caring for our residents’ physical needs. We offer the specialized service of looking after their mental and emotional needs as well.
Our Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care community has specially designed living spaces specifically for those who are living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Design features include pattern-free flooring and wall colors that help residents navigate a space. The memory care environment guides its residents in their daily lives. Areas of the community are set up to help residents safely enjoy activities such as gardening, kitchen work, and other life skills that provide purposeful, meaningful and successful moments.
The Clare Bridge concept was created over 25 years ago and has evolved by continually. It embraces the latest research in dementia care, coupled with the experience of caring for thousands of people with dementia and their families.
Training for the specialized tasks of dementia care is an ongoing venture. This involves all levels of our carefully selected Brookdale staff. All associates receive initial and continuing training in new techniques for dementia care, incorporating updated information on the most advanced methods. Our Executive Director also undergoes Clare Bridge Leadership Competency Training.
Brookdale associates are trained in the concept of generating daily moments of success and embrace this promise by offering opportunities for residents to find happiness and meaning that supports their unique needs. The program is deeply rooted in a person-centered approach focused on sustaining feelings of belonging and purpose while seeking to preserve a sense of self.
The Clare Bridge Daily Path offers a gentle daily structure consisting of a minimum of six programs per day, which help maintain the resident’s abilities and encourage the use of their current skills. This daily routine gives residents a sense of security that they are “right where they need to be.”
Activities include the following:
- The Mental Morning Workout
- Daily Physical Activity
- Livelihoods Daily Life Skills Activities
- Art Expressions
- Solace Sessions
- Personalized Life Enrichment Refresher Sessions
The Clare Bridge program uses memory care techniques to evaluate challenging behaviors, identify a resident’s unmet needs that trigger those behaviors and craft a solution. This approach involves the whole community and empowers associates at all levels to participate in finding a remedy for the resident.
A team of Alzheimer’s Care specialists, including a physician specializing in dementia care, a chef and a registered dietician, designed the Clare Bridge Dining Program. We help your loved one enjoy dining experiences like they once did.
