We believe that no one should be defined by the symptoms of Alzheimer s and dementia. Maintaining identity and a strong sense of self comes from living a life filled with meaning and purpose and contributions we believe having dementia shouldn t change that. For those with Alzheimer s disease or other types of dementia, Brookdale Cary offers a safe environment and exceptional memory care.
At our community, located in a quiet residential Cary, N.C., neighborhood, we can help you and your family as you consider care for your loved one. We have the experience to understand the complexity of Alzheimer s and dementia and know how to support them at every stage. Memory care services in a safe, comfortable, home-like environment are the unique contribution we can make to your loved one s well-being and quality of life. And for you, there s peace of mind knowing we have trained staff on-site 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Our memory care program is deeply rooted in a person-centered approach focused on creating feelings of belonging and purpose for your loved one, while seeking to preserve their identity and sense of self. More simply, we meet them where they are. With gentle guidance and visual reminders, we help them flourish in activities such as gardening, kitchen work and other projects that provide the opportunity to use meaningful life skills and talents even with advanced expressions of the disease.
Because Brookdale Cary specializes in memory care, our community is designed with our residents in mind. Here, it s safety first, with monitored entries and exits and an enclosed courtyard and garden, so our residents can explore their surroundings, yet remain safe. Our private apartments, common areas, dining area and outdoor spaces are all built to be memory-friendly.
You ll see our residents enjoying exercise classes, art projects, puzzles, games and live music performances. We also offer on-site devotional services, bowling and sing-alongs all designed to help them live their best life.
While our common areas are designed for socializing, our private apartments offer privacy and their own quiet place for residents. Filled with natural light, our apartments are a place for your loved one to be surrounded by the comfort of his or her own familiar furnishings, treasured family photos and keepsakes.
Deeply rooted in a person-centered approach, our Alzheimer s and dementia care is called the Clare Bridge program, where each resident is surrounded by others with the same cognitive abilities, to give them a feeling of fitting in.

The Daily Path is carefully structured to give each resident purpose and a sense of security that they are right where they need to be. And, of course, you ll have peace of mind knowing there is trained staff on-site 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
