You Can Make a Difference
If your family member or friend is a Brookdale skilled nursing patient, you have a vital role. Research shows that caring connections promote psychological wellbeing and can further healing and recovery. Your involvement is invaluable as your loved one and our clinical team work together to achieve his or her goals.
We invite you to come spend time with your family member or friend, at their invitation, as often as possible. Our welcoming environments make it easy and enjoyable for you to stop by. If you haven’t been inside a skilled nursing care center recently, you may be surprised by what you find.
Enjoy a meal with your loved one in our restaurant-style dining room or when therapy’s done for the day, relax together in our lounges. You can attend our entertainment events at your loved one’s side and even take part together in activities and volunteering.
If you aren’t able to visit in person, keep in touch through technology. Brookdale skilled nursing care centers typically offer a computer and iPad for patients to use. We may be able to set up Skype and FaceTime sessions with your loved one, even if he or she is not familiar with technology. Many Brookdale centers offer free wi-fi for patients who wish to bring their own electronic devices.
We look forward to seeing you!
