Your loved one has lived a life of meaning, purpose and contributions and dementia shouldn t change that. For those with Alzheimer s disease or other types of dementia, Brookdale Oak Hollow, in Bedford, Texas, offers a safe environment and exceptional memory care to help your loved one preserve their sense of self.
With our carefully designed building and nurturing and highly trained staff, we focus on serving the specific needs of each resident and their family. We gently steer residents through their day with visual reminders and other familiar routines that meet their skill level, enabling them to experience daily moments of success and delight. And you get the peace of mind knowing that our staff is there 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
On any given day, you ll see our residents engaged in such sports as bean-bag toss or balloon volleyball, singing karaoke, painting or playing trivia games. Maybe you ll find them gathering for parties, getting coffee with a friend or attending movie nights. They re having fun, yes. But each of these activities is part of a carefully designed care program to help our residents live their best life.
Because Brookdale Oak Hollow specializes in memory care, our purpose-built community incorporates special features such as large circular paths designed to lead residents to areas of activity, way-finding cues and spaces decorated like home. With monitored entries and exits and an enclosed courtyard and garden, they remain safe while having a sense of freedom and independence.
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 such activities as kitchen tasks, gardening and other projects that provide the opportunity to use meaningful life skills and talents.
Three home-style meals and three delicious snacks are served daily in our dining area. To help alleviate any confusion or added stress, we keep mealtimes very routine for our memory care community. All residents sit together at the same time and same table each day. Place settings are designed to enhance and provide ease for each person and meals can quickly be converted to hand-held for those who prefer walking or standing, rather than sitting.
Our Clare Bridge Daily Path approach to Alzheimer s and dementia care offers a gentle structure of six programs per day, tailored to maintain our residents' abilities and encourage the use of their current skills, even with advanced expressions of the disease. These include morning workouts with brain games and discussions, along with fitness activities such as dancing, walking and our B-Fit program. A daily music program, pet therapy, music therapy, games and singing are among other Daily Path activities that provide our residents with a sense of purpose, meaning and belonging.
