Our Community

Along with making our residents feel loved and cared for, we want to ensure that they are in a safe environment. So we have constructed our community to be one that’s very secure. We have 18 apartments in each of our three neighborhoods, and our apartments are specifically designed for those with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Accommodations are ranch style with no steps or elevators for residents to negotiate.

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. Activities have included golf, trips to the ballgame, off-site luncheons, movies and much more.

Clare Bridge 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 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.

Levels of Care

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.

Person-Centered Approach to Memory Care

Brookdale’s Clare Bridge Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care Program has years of successful experience providing the right kind of care to those with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. This program is deeply rooted in a person-centered approach.

We don’t want to just provide assistance to Memory Care seniors — we want to help facilitate feelings of belonging, purpose, fulfillment and a strong sense of self. We view our residents as individuals with specific interests, desires, family histories — and we treat them this way.

Our staff has been trained in the proper techniques, approach, and care of people with dementia. Associates also receive on-going training in order to continue serving our residents in the best possible way. Our executive directors also attend Brookdale’s Clare Bridge Leadership Competency Training.

Caring for residents with dementia can be very specialized, so we want to keep our staff up-to-date on the proper techniques. This ensures that our residents are getting the best type of care they can from us.

Gentle Daily Structure

Every day we work towards maintaining residents’ abilities and encouraging their current skills. We strive for our residents to live purposefully and for them to enjoy moments of satisfaction daily. In order to help us accomplish this, we’ve implemented a daily structure that includes a minimum of six programs per day.

These programs may include:

  • A Morning Mental Workout with discussions, brain-stimulating games, and reminiscing.
  • Daily Physical Activity with a variety of exercise opportunities including “Movement is 
Medicine” group exercises, walking programs, and dancing.
  • Daily Life Skills for individuals or as a group activity provides a sense of purpose, meaning 
and belonging.
  • Person-Centered Programming includes activities designed to use the resident’s “Guide 
to the Daily Path” social history information as a foundation. By honoring past interests and involvements, programs tap into current skills and support successful experiences.
  • Distribution of “We’re Keeping Our Promise” personal notes, sent periodically to family members.
