Memory Care Reviews for Brookdale Portage (MC)

February 17, 2015

By uhh


I would NEVER recommend this place, nor even begin to consider putting a loved one here. Very rude, untrained aides, and uncaring management. Not a comfortable place and not a safe place.

I am a friend or relative of resident

This place looks great but provides inadequate care. in 9 months our bill for personal services went up over a $1000.00 a month. They charge for every little thing they can. The communication between management and staff is terrible. Very high turn over in aides with little to NO training. No male aides. Lots of lies and empty promises. They take no responsibility for anything that happens to you loved one while placed in there care. I would not recommend this place to anyone.

I visited this facility

The rooms were nice at Clare Bridge. Their food was good and they had lots of activities. They had outings and people came in to entertain the residents. However, I didn't like the area where it was situated.

I visited this facility

We visited Clare Bridge of Portage Assisted Living while in the area looking at assisted living facilities to consider for my friend's mother. We immediately liked the outer exterior, which appeared very well maintained. The grounds were nicely landscaped, with tree-lined walkways and seating areas. We could feel a very good vibe when we stepped inside. We did not have an appointment, yet the staff was very accommodating and took us on a full tour. This facility can accommodate a variety of ambulation levels and as needs change, the care team adjusts accordingly. There were ample communal rooms for activities, from reading in the library, to card games, physical exercise, crafting and hosted meetings. The fitness center offers regular exercise classes, swimming pools, an aquatic center and spa. They even have an indoor walking track. The personal trainers are on hand to ensure safety while assisting the seniors in every way they can. The private living spaces were generous, and the studio and one bedroom we saw was beautifully decorated with lots of fresh air and light. All units were well designed, efficient and yet still spacious. The dining room was quite nice, with plenty of space. The food we saw looked and smelled delicious. They operate a Culinary Arts Institute that creates impressive menus that you would find in a five star restaurant. There were healthy food options for all kinds of diets. Healthy snacks are also offered all day and into the evening, as well as whenever residents request them. The outside activities feature many interesting cultural events in the immediate and surrounding areas, like films, art and other interesting cultural gatherings. \ This is a well-designed living environment for seniors that includes everything that they need. We were impressed with how the staff here interacts with residents with great kindness and caring.

About Brookdale Portage (MC)

At Brookdale Portage 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 Brookdale Portage are built to embrace, not restrict our residents' desire to wander and to provide a sense of belonging.

What Makes Us Special

We feature a number of distinct living areas that offer unique surroundings for Memory care residents. We also offer individualized life stations that provide purposeful activities.
