Memory loss doesn’t have to mean all is lost. If you and your family are looking for a memory care community, Brookdale Virginia Beach can help. Our Alzheimer's and dementia care community, also known as Clare Bridge, is rooted in a person-centered approach. That means we help our residents find a sense of belonging and purpose while also helping them preserve who they are.
It’s where state-of-the-art care meets a passion for painting. Our residents stay engaged with a gentle daily structure of planned activities to help them maintain their abilities and encourage the use of their current skills. Brain games, dancing, cooking classes and music programs are just a few of the ways our residents enjoy their days. Along with our programming, you’ll have peace of mind knowing that trained staff is on-site 24 hours a day, seven days a week to be alerted to an emergency. We’ll also help you make your loved one’s studio apartment comfortable and familiar.

Our memory care focuses on creating a personalized experience. That means there is no one-size-fits-all approach to care here. Techniques that work for one resident may not work for another, so we tailor care to each resident and address their needs with consistent care assignments whenever possible. 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.
ActivitiesOn any given day, you’ll see our residents enjoying outdoor activities such as gardening and nature walks, as well as indoor art classes and movie nights. Our residents also enjoy devotional services, cooking demonstrations, movie night and happy hour too. Music is also an important part of life at Brookdale Virginia Beach, with karaoke and sing-a-longs. They’re having fun, yes. But each of these activities is part of a carefully designed care program to help your loved one live their best life.
DiningThree home-style meals and delicious snacks are served daily in our dining area. To help alleviate any confusion or added stress, we keep mealtimes very routine for our memory care community. We use mealtime as an opportunity to offer healthy menu choices and create a sense of belonging. Our residents 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.
