Person-Centered Memory Care in Brookfield, CT

memory-care-art-classThe Linden at Brookfield offers holistic and person-centered memory care services in Brookfield, CT. We know that dementia or an Alzheimer’s diagnosis can be devastating for the entire family and that family caregivers often bear the burden of such a diagnosis. We are here to come alongside your family and partner with you in caring for your loved one with dementia.

We know it’s a long journey and often a hard one. Our role is to be your partner and lift your burden, ultimately, restoring your relationship as a family member and balancing your caregiving responsibilities.

As a Leisure Care community, residents at The Linden at Brookfield have access to our innovative and creative approach to memory care centered around each resident’s unique needs. Similar to our assisted living care, residents in memory care do not receive cookie-cutter care plans. There is no one-size-fits-all approach because each resident is an individual. Although they share a common diagnosis, we work to understand each individual’s life story, which helps us understand what drives and motivates each resident and what frustrates them.

Living With a ‘Whole Lotta Heart’ through Opal

Opal offers seniors with Alzheimer’s disease or a related form of dementia a holistic approach to care. We focus on seven pillars of wellness, ensuring that our residents’ physical, social, experiential, emotional and spiritual, creative and artistic, therapeutic, and sensory needs are met.

Our signature PrimeFit program focuses on the unique physical abilities of each resident in both group and private sessions. We take into consideration the preferences and life story of our residents to create active moments throughout the day.

From scenic drives and themed dinners to holiday events and excursions, we ensure our residents feel included in society and maintain important social connections.

By providing a range of activities like picnics in the park, nature preserves, or live music at the community, our residents have the opportunity to experience the very things that have had importance to them their entire lives while also cultivating new experiences and interests.

Because spirituality means different things to different people, we draw from the life story of our residents to provide daily opportunities to practice meaningful spirituality in ways that are important to each resident.

Activities that elicit expression and provide sensory stimulation, like drawing, clay sculpting, or flower arranging are just a few of the ways residents can express themselves creatively each and every day.

Our goal is to offer daily opportunities for residents to complete tasks with a purpose. We find that tasks, like watering plants or helping the staff, become quite meaningful for residents.

We know that individuals living with a diagnosis of dementia often experience and express themselves through the five senses. The Opal program provides daily opportunities for our residents to positively interact in our community through what they see, hear, touch, taste, and smell.
