From the Provider
At Clare Bridge of Topeka 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 Topeka are built to embrace, not restrict our residents' desire to wander and to provide a sense of belonging.

The caregivers are thoughtful, caring, and professional.
I visited this facility
This is a beautiful facility operated by the large management company Brookdale. It is focused specifically on memory care, so it is a secure facility. While the building is a few years old now, it was very clean and well-maintained. I actually arrived this morning just as a truck full of furniture was pulling into the driveway. My guide explained that the facility was being remodelled so all of the furniture would be replaced.
Despite several temporarily empty common areas, the facility felt small and homey. It had three separate, enclosed courtyard areas where residents were encouraged to garden, paint, and barbecue, as well as sit on the sun porch and read.
Indoors, in an effort to encourage â€œdaily moments of successâ€ the managers have set up a number of task-specific activity stations which they say allows residents with memory issues to feel accomplished. Some of these include a dishwashing station, laundry folding, a carpentry workbench area (without dangerous tools), and a sewing machine (without a needle).
I would heartily recommend this facility to residents with memory care needs. However, Iâ€™m unsure that this facility would be well-equipped to accommodate my grandfather who has no memory problems. While the care would be impeccable for his wife, Iâ€™m afraid he would find himself frustrated without some friends and neighbours who did not suffer from Alzheimerâ€™s or Dementia.
