Memory Care in Chicago, IL
If you have a loved one in need of a memory care community in the Chicago area, you’ve come to the right place. Our Brookdale communities provide quality care and support in environments designed to resemble a private home.
In addition to the beautiful and inviting common rooms and apartments, your family member will receive loving guidance and reminders from our care team throughout the day as they participate in activities that promote social interaction and cognitive retention for all stages of dementia. Here are some more ways we help our memory care residents make the most of this season of their lives:
A Secure Setting
Our apartments, common areas and dining rooms are all built dementia-friendly with security and ease in mind. And many of our communities offer secure outdoor spaces to provide sensory experiences and encourage independence. You’ll also have peace of mind knowing there is trained staff on-site 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to be alerted to an emergency.
A Warm and Welcoming Atmosphere
A place that is familiar and comforting—that’s home. Our living spaces have plenty of natural window light, private bathrooms, ample storage, and some even have garden views. Plus, our purpose-built communities incorporate special memory care features like easy-to-navigate floor plans, soothing wall colors and way-finding cues.
Consistent Care Assignments
Your family member deserves to experience a full life in a place where they are well known. That’s why we strive to provide consistent care assignments so that your loved one is cared for by the same Brookdale associates whenever possible. This helps build out relationship-rich partnerships between residents and caregivers, which in turn promote familiarity and regularity.
Our daily path of engagement is an evidence-based approach that offers a gentle structure of six planned programs per day. This routine helps your loved one maintain their abilities, encourages the use of current skills and offers a sense of security and accomplishment. Activities can include morning cognitive workouts and physical fitness and movement classes.
