Specialized Care From the Industry Leader


If you or your loved one is living with dementia or other cognitive challenges, it's time to trust the industry leader. We are Lubbock's very first free-standing Alzheimer's and dementia care provider.

Our well-established and recommended community is the go-to resource for memory care needs in the Lubbock area. Centrally located, we pride ourself on our dedication to seniors with memory issues.

Offering both private and semi-private apartment for residents in a home-like atmosphere, we are able to meet the needs of all spectrums of memory care needs. Our residents are given a number of activities each day, each one chosen specifically to be dementia-friendly and to contribute to one of six different areas of life fulfillment.

Unlike many other senior living communities, our community is specialized to memory care. That means we're able to provide a staff full of highly-trained caregivers who are continually updated on the best treatment plans and methods.

Providing quality of life is the everyday goal of our associates and we are able to create memorable experiences with our Clare Bridge programming including our In Touch program which allows our residents to Skype with family and friends, use a flight simulator and make beautiful music.

Our seniors also enjoy a luxurious array of features and amenities including:
Emergency response in every room
Keypad entry and 24-hour security
Game room
Gardening and on-site greenhouse
On-site beauty parlor perfect for a day of pampering?

Because we also have emergency response available 24/7, both our residents and their families benefit from knowing that whenever we're needed most, we'll be there.

  • Somewhat disappointed

    Well, it's not all that we were led to believe. The "fantastic food" prepared by a "world-famous chef"...well, I could cook it better and have it more edible! It's mostly chicken, much of it too hard for the residents to chew well and not provided with gravy even to make it palatable. No condiments are given...butter, ketchup, mustard, etc. If you ask for butter for the rolls, all they have is melted butter in a dish. Who does that??? They never serve milk unless you specifically ask for it. We asked for it to be served every meal, but no, you have to ask every single time for it, and if someone is living there who doesn't communicate well and no family is there to ask, then they are out of luck. The regular bathroom schedule we were led to believe exists doesn't exist either. Often they are left to just be wet until it soaks through to their wheelchairs and leaves them smelling bad. The activities that are done are good, but more are needed especially on Saturday and Sunday when the residents are bored. The nurses are good about doing medications and working with you on pharmacies and such and the transportation is good to appointments. This may be the best memory care in Lubbock, but there are definite improvements that could and should be made -- or else quit advertising all the stuff that isn't happening!

  • some of the workers need better attititudes

    They can improve by making sure the bathrooms are clean and making sure the toilet paper ring is there. Some of the workers need to work on their attitude. Not all have an attitude but some there needs improvement. They need to work on the way they are with the elders.

  • Exceptionally Caring Staff

    I just think that the staff at Brookdale Monterey was exceptionally caring, and even though my dad did not have much of a personality left when he got there all the aides seemed to really care about him.
