Memory Care Reviews for Brookdale North Gilbert

I visited this facility

I visited Brookdale North Gilbert and met the administrative staff. They gave us a brief walk-through. It looked mediocre. The rooms weren’t spacious, but the residents had their own rooms.

I visited this facility

Brookdale North Gilbert was relatively new and small, and more personable than other places. The staff is very friendly and polite. They rooms are very clean, modern, well decorated, and quite sunny and bright, too.

What programs or activities does Brookdale North Gilbert offer to keep residents engaged? How does the staff engage residents' long-term memories?

Brookdale aims to create meaningful and purposeful programming to speak to our resident’s individual interests. When we take the time to know residents’ histories, their past and present roles and relationships, their hobbies, habits, likes and dislikes, we can help them stay connected to who they are, and respect and reflect how they see themselves, not how we see them. By knowing about the residents, we make sure that we define them by who they are, not by the symptoms of their dementia. On our calendar you may find those staple programs such as Bingo and Karaoke colored with activities that speak directly to our residents as individuals such as knitting circles and garden clubs. There is also a focus on connecting the mind body and spirit and that is reflected in our yoga, dance/movement therapy, and music therapy groups.

Who assesses residents' health and cognitive functioning? How often is that assessment repeated?

The Health & Wellness Director or The Health & Wellness Coordinator.
