The Clare Bridge Program
Deeply rooted in a person-centered approach, our Alzheimer’s and dementia care program, also called the Clare Bridge 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. Our experienced 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. The Daily Path includes programs such as discussion groups as a mental workout and daily physical exercise such as dancing. The Daily Path 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 dementia care and registered dieticians, our unique dining program promotes a positive and successful dining experience with the following features:
- Dementia-friendly menus with selections that are easy to manage and familiar with dishes that promote balanced nutrition and well-being.
- Individualized dining assistance includes evaluating residents to determine the level of assistance needed to preserve their use of utensils as long as possible.
- The supportive dining environment encourages familiarity and socialization and offers personalized assistance during meals.
Brookdale is the nation’s largest provider of Alzheimer’s and dementia care. Through our unique memory care programs, we offer comfort from the struggles of dementia for you and your loved one with customized care to meet your loved one’s specific needs. Our skilled associates provide compassionate and attentive dementia care, and enable residents to experience daily moments of success.
Specifically developed to help persons with early-stage dementia, our Clare Bridge Crossings program builds on the growing body of aging research that shows well-designed programs can help sustain mental functions often impacted in the early to early-middle stages of Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. As a proactive discipline, the Clare Bridge Crossings program benefits individuals whose symptoms are just starting to result in the need for additional care. The Crossings’ Daily Path of activities features mind-and-body enhancing, socially-engaging programs.
The Clare Bridge Crossings program offers private and companion suites in comfortable neighborhood environments. Unique building features, such as an exercise room, art gallery, and safe, resident-use kitchen, help residents stay engaged and socially active. The program is, by design, a stepping stone in the Clare Bridge continuum of Alzheimer’s and dementia care provided by Brookdale. As such it is most beneficial for those in the early stages of these conditions. It all comes together at Brookdale.
Early-Stage Dementia Care
Persons in the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias often experience loss of self-esteem and a lack of social engagement due to an increased awareness of their own cognitive decline. The programmatic concepts of the Clare Bridge Crossings program have as their foundation an increasing body of research that shows that a structured program of appropriate cognitive workout, regular physical exercise, and increased social interaction may help to slow the inevitable decline of Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias.
Clare Bridge Crossings is by nature a stepping-stone in Brookdale’s continuum of dementia care, and is not an appropriate setting for all persons with dementia. Managing the communities as a continuum is a critical piece of the success of Clare Bridge Crossings.
