Not everyone has the time, energy, or resources to be a round-the-clock caregiver for someone with Alzheimer’s Disease or related dementias. It can be challenging but we at Brookdale University Park work with residents and caregivers to find their interests and passions to incorporate into our community! We take a person-centered approach to memory care. For example, we have a resident that was an art curator and our staff took the time to walk the resident through our community to price all our art on the walls! Engagement is key to making residents feel at home in our community.
If taking care of your loved one is overwhelming emotionally or otherwise, it doesn’t mean you don’t love them enough. It simply means you need some help. Don’t be afraid to look into options for live-in healthcare, adult day care programs, or even a memory care home. To learn more about how Brookdale could assist you in the care of a loved one or to schedule a tour of our community, call us at 205-870-0786 or visit us at www.brookdale.com.

Walk to Remember
Brookdale University Park is a proud corporate sponsor of Alzheimer’s of Central Alabama. Throughout the year, Brookdale organizes, hosts and facilitates various activities to raise funds for this local organization. It all comes together the first Saturday of each November with the “Walk to Remember” where residents, associates and friends participate to raise awareness in support of those affected by Alzheimer’s Disease and related dementias. We are thankful to have two small groupings of Memory Care apartments on our campus at Brookdale University Park as well as caring associates who go the extra mile to engage and interact with each of our residents. Call us today to set up your personal visit and learn about our “Daily Path” and “Solace” programming, dementia friendly menus and dining, and our person-centered approach to memory care, 205-870-0786. †
