In general, Clare Bridge was the one that I would personally choose for my mother and the main reason I liked that facility was there seemed to be a lot of caregivers around taking care of the residents. They were very accommodating. They also had a spacious place for the patients in the Alzheimer's unit and it felt like home. The rooms were in the average size and the food seemed okay.

The staff was very good and very caring. The facility is clean, has an atrium in the center with lower walls so the patients can walk and still be visible. Each patient has their own room with their personal items. Our family stopped in at various items throughout the week. They have some excellent employees who work endlessly.

While in the Florida area, we headed over to check out the Clare Bridge of Fort Myers assisted living facility as an option for my friend's mother. It looked really well-kept from the outside. We liked the park-like atmosphere of the grounds. My friend's mother has family in the region so it would be ideal to find a place in the vicinity. The main foyer was reminiscent of a quaint country home with fresh flowers. It was hard to imagine that this was an assisted living facility. The communal areas all had ongoing activities, from reading to games and resident interactions. It was clear that the residents were enjoying themselves. Outings scheduled included everything from nature walks to fine dining, art museums and literary events. They also host monthly parties for residents at the facility which they encourage friends and family to attend regularly. The living spaces were all a nice size and had beautiful decorations. We could see that my friend's mother would be comfortable in any one of them. Each space had individually controlled temperatures. The dining areas had a fresh ambiance and the food choices looked nutritious and delicious, as well as the regular snacks - which are offered continually and whenever requested. The exercise center included daily yoga and aerobics exercise classes. Residents can also safely navigate the lovely garden pathways and courtyard. This is a well designed facility with caring and attentive staff. All of the residents appeared to be quite content in this living environment.

    About Brookdale Fort Myers The Colony


    At Brookdale Fort Myers The Colony 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.
