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

I visited this facility
The Clare Bridge of Leawood facility is specifically geared toward Alzheimerâ€™s and Dementia patients. The location is generally good: the facility is directly on a busy street, but surrounded on three sides by pretty residential neighbourhoods. The building is secure and organised in 4 separate hallways to allow residents to interact with a small consistent group of people. The inner courtyards have a lot of walking paths and plenty of raised planter beds and opportunities for gardening activities. A double room seems like a very nicely arranged, open apartment with separate spaces for a bed and living area, or two bedrooms with attached bath. The single room is quite a bit smaller and seemed to me to be a tight squeeze for a couple, though my guide said some couples do share one. I was really impressed with the staff, as my guide seemed to have a strong personal relationship with several residents, and I even saw employees with no resident-care duties (I think he was the head of maintenance) stop and have a long conversation with a resident couple. The management seems equally invested in the individual residents and their interests. For example, my guide said that just the day before one resident was having a particularly bad day so she took just him out to the lake for a few hours. On the other hand, my guide did not really talk at all about planned activities for the residents. I would recommend investigating this aspect carefully before choosing Clare Bridge, but I would recommend this facility to a loved one with Alzheimerâ€™s or Dementia.
