We believe that no one should be defined by the symptoms of Alzheimer’s and dementia. Maintaining identity and a strong sense of self comes from living a life filled with meaning and purpose and contributions — we believe having dementia shouldn’t change that. For those with Alzheimer’s disease or other types of dementia, Brookdale Torbett offers a safe environment and exceptional memory care.
At our memory care community, located in Richland, Wash., we can help you and your family as you consider care for your loved one. We have the experience to understand the complexity of Alzheimer’s and dementia and know how to support them at every stage. Memory care services in a safe, comfortable, home-like environment are the unique contribution we can make to your loved one’s well-being and quality of life. And for you, there’s peace of mind knowing we have trained staff on-site 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to be alerted to an emergency.

When residents move into our community, their world often opens up with new relationships and new activities. Through consistent care assignments whenever possible, our compassionate care team helps create daily experiences for your family member so that they can live their best life with a sense of meaning and purpose. Whether it’s our Clare Bridge program for mid to late stages of dementia or our Solace program for the advanced stages of dementia, we have purposeful programs with the compassionate care you and your family need. Here are some of the programs and services we offer:
Clare Bridge is our exclusive brand of dementia care created more than 30 years ago.
Clare Bridge Solace is designed to meet the special needs of residents in the advanced stages of dementia.
ActivitiesYou’ll see our residents enjoying exercise classes such as chair yoga or water balloon toss, art projects like stained glass projects, karaoke, games and live music performances. We also offer spa days, music therapy and sing-alongs — all designed to help them live life to the fullest. With gentle guidance and visual reminders, we help your loved one flourish in activities such as gardening with our garden club, kitchen work and other projects that help them use meaningful life skills and talents — even with advanced expressions of the disease.
DiningPeople living with dementia may be at a greater risk for poor nutrition and weight loss. That’s why we use mealtime as an opportunity to offer healthy menu choices and create a sense of belonging. With our award-winning dining program, your family member can enjoy dementia-friendly menus with familiar and easy-to-manage selections, small dining rooms with consistent pre-selected seating and personal dining assistance as needed.
Our memory care program is deeply rooted in a person-centered approach. We offer the necessary resources and nurturing staff to care for those with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia.
