From the Provider
At Clare Bridge of Bend we know that memory losses due to Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia are progressive and residents' needs are continually changing. That's why we provide balance in our residents' capabilities, personalities, and preferences to create daily routines that enhance their spirits and increase their sense of purpose. We believe the amount of satisfaction our Alzheimer's and dementia care residents receive from the tasks that fill their days goes a long way to maintaining their sense of purpose and overall satisfaction with life. An integral part of this is our promise to encourage each resident to find Daily Moments of Success. To help our residents achieve these moments, our associates receive the tools and training needed in such key areas as specialized dining and the ongoing monitoring of healthcare and behavioral needs, to name a few.
We provide Alzheimer's and dementia care residents with the lifestyle, housing, and services they need in comfortable surroundings combined with the amenities, programs, and care to help stimulate recognition, recall, and wellness in a safe environment. Through years of caring for individuals with dementia, our professional care staff has learned to create optimal surroundings and approaches to care. Familiar environments that our residents have enjoyed throughout their lives are recreated to help them feel reassured and comfortable. The Alzheimer's and dementia care programs at Clare Bridge of Bend are built to embrace, not restrict our residents' desire to wander and to provide a sense of belonging.
Reviews of Clare Bridge of Bend
Average Rating: based on 1 Review
Clare Bridge of Bend is a beautiful memory care community, very home-like and the staff work very hard everyday to make the community a happy, safe, and fun place for the residents to call home. There are many areas throughout the community that offer the residents a nice and comfortable escape, a place to relax and enjoy some quiet alone time. There are also many common areas where the residents can socialize with friends, spend time with loved ones, and just get out there and have fun. The residents all seem to feel comfortable within the environment and they seem to really trust the staff. I think one of the reasons they are able to trust the staff is because the staff are dependable, and even though most memory care facilities, or really most senior living communities, in general have high turnover rates, but here at Clare Bridge of Bend, the staff seem to remain fairly constant, they are not always changing so they become familiar faces to the residents which in turn help the residents to be able to trust them even more.
The staff are all great, they work really well with the residents and there seems to be very open lines of communication between the staff and the residents. The staff members are all very friendly and approachable people. They are always encouraging the residents to try new things, participate in activities, discussions, and group events. Every morning the residents and a staff member will get together and have group discussions and activities which help to stimulate the minds of the residents - they may talk about things happening around their community to the Bend community to the State to the Country to the World, they might discuss TV shows or movies, they may tell stories or talk about their lives, friends, and family. They can really talk about anything and everything, the point of these morning discussions is that it helps fuel their minds and concentration levels to maybe get through the day better. I have known quite a few memory care facilities who perform these early morning exercises and it has really made a difference in how the residents focus and communicate throughout the day. Clare Bridge of Bend is owned by a giant in the senior living industry named Brookdale. Brookdale is known for being very resident focused and for constantly exploring new opportunities and programs to make available to the residents. All of the amenities and services offered in Clare Bridge of Bend are very care-level appropriate.
I really believe that Clare Bridge of Bend is an excellent choice for those searching for a memory care community, I think that if people were to visit the facility they would see how happy the residents are, happy residents give the best reviews!
