Here you and your family will have compassionate care and support you can count on.

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.

The Clare Bridge Daily Path is an evidence-based approach that offers a gentle daily structure of six planned programs per day, our routine that helps our residents maintain their abilities, encourage the use of their current skills, and offer a sense of security and accomplishment. Working in small cluster groups, each resident is surrounded by others with the same cognitive abilities, to give them a feeling of fitting in.

Examples of activities include the following:
•Art classes
•Fitness classes
•Gardening
•Game night
•Movie night
•Devotional services
•Mix and mingle events
•Music
•InTouch, an interactive touch-screen computer

We focus on creating spaces that are comfortable and familiar for our residents and that includes our apartments.  Here are just a few of our apartment features:
•Plenty of natural window light
•Select floor plans have a garden view
•Private studio suites and companion suites available
•Family move-in guide and a suggested list of what to bring
•Pet-friendly
•Shadow box outside of each resident apartment filled with items to create a small “biography” for the resident

Our Clare Bridge environments feature areas of the community that are set up for safe engagement in gardening, kitchen work, handyman help, and other household and normal daily tasks. Life skills activities provide a sense of purpose, meaning and belonging as residents complete tasks related to everyday life.

Whether it’s our Clare Bridge program for mid to late stages or our Solace program for the advanced stages of dementia, we have purposeful programs that offer the care you and your family need. Along with our programming, you’ll have peace of mind knowing there is trained staff on-site 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

With our Clare Bridge Solace Program, we help meet the unique needs of residents living with the advanced stages of dementia, striving to keep them engaged and continually making meaningful connections. Solace programming adds a layer of programming to engage sensory awareness and focus on comfort and joy.

Whether it’s flooring choices or how we approach behavioral expressions, our Clare Bridge program uses an evidence-based approach to continue to evolve and build our state-of-the-art care for you and your family. We focus on building relationships with you and your loved one based on trust, loving concern and a strong sense of family.

  • Aides were Good Administration was Not

    The caregivers that worked there were nice, but most of the other residents there need far more care then [name removed] needed. He was bored to death. They ran out of his medication and did not let me know, so he went without medication for two days. The main reason we moved him in was that he needed medication management. I ended up pulling him out and moved him to a new community. I had a really hard time getting the rest of his medication back after we moved him out. The caregivers were great but the Head Nurse was not helpful and nasty.

  • Beware of Brookdale

    Mom lived there for 4 + years. In the first 2.5 years, nice value. Generally good staff. Some of the aides are well trained and truly seem to care, but there has been an enormous turnover in staff as well. Last 1.5 years, though, once the name changed from ClareBridge to Brookdale, huge decrease in quality of care. Rates go up every January, but quality has decreased significantly. Staff have been reduced to minimal standards, a nurse used to be available 24/7, not any more. Staff are overburdened with needs of residents, especially at night and on weekends. Residents with higher needs are [Removed]. Often left wet /soiled, not kept hydrated, meal times rushed-so proper nutrition is not possible. Focus has become meds and minimal care needed. Mom had a recent issue while eating in the AM, she was left on her own without consultation even with nurse until later in the day when a staff person expressed concern. Another issue had also been a concern, but no one did anything about it. I had not been notified of any of this. I arrived to visit and was instantly concerned with her condition. No nurse was around, an aide called for support from off duty nurse and xray but she clearly needed more help than that. Sadly they have put her in jeopardy for the last time.

  • The staff are awesome

    The staff are kind, loving and encourage my dad. The food is ok and the meals seem to be well balanced. They offer daily activities and the community is kept clean. This is a locked community, however they do have a closed in patio with flowers and tables. They also have a vestibule with flowers outside the front door. I would recommend this community.
