Brookdale W. Eisenhower Pkwy is a Memory Care community that provides Alzheimer’s and dementia care for seniors. We are located close enough to Ann Arbor that our residents have access to many wonderful amenities, but far enough away to enjoy a peaceful and quiet setting for our residents.
Our goal is to help our residents maintain their independence for as long as possible. We integrate fun and helpful programs every day, which are designed to help our Memory Care residents retain their mental functions, be more engaged with the world and enjoy daily satisfaction. From our building design to our carefully selected staff, we focus on the individual needs of each resident and family we serve.
A Loving and Supportive Environment
With Memory Care residents, it’s important for them to have familiarity and routines in their daily life. This is something that we do every day in a variety of ways — allowing for the greatest success in our residents.
Our community, for instance, was designed to re-create environments people have enjoyed throughout their lives. The community’s interior spaces are scaled and decorated like those of a private home, so residents feel comfortable and secure in their surroundings.
Brookdale W. Eisenhower Pkwy was also designed to ensure the safety of our residents. We have enclosed walking areas that allow residents to move about the community safely. And all of our exterior doors are alarmed to ensure that no resident leaves the community without notice.
Just because a resident has Alzheimer’s or dementia doesn’t mean that they can enjoy everything life has to offer. Our staff works to provide enriching, thought provoking activities that are geared toward Memory Care residents. Each day we want our residents to feel a sense of accomplishment, success and satisfaction.
Some of our specialized programs include daily late morning mental exercises including discussions, brain stimulating games, and reminiscing; a variety of exercise opportunities including group exercises, walking programs and dancing; individual or group activities that provide a sense of purpose, meaning, and belonging; activities designed using the resident’s own social history information as a foundation.

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.
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.
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.
