We also have an open door and communication policy with all families that they can reach out to our nurse, ED, or any staff member at any time with any updates or concerns that they might have at any time.

What safety features or security measures does Brookdale Dodge City provide to protect residents who wander?
We are a fully secured community. All of our doors can only be accessible with a code that is private and secure to associates only. Residents may leave and return to the community as they choose but must be signed out and back in with a loved one or friend. Our community is also constructed in a square format- this helps residents who wander and enjoy walking the halls avoid getting lost or running into a dead end. So in essence if they continue to follow the natural flow of the halls they will always run back into a place where there is assistance.
