Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q: How do I know if Brookstone is right for me?
Before considering an assisted living community like Brookstone, there are a few questions prospective residents can ask themselves to find out if senior living is the right choice for them, according to their needs:
- Is the person ambulatory, or are they confined to their bed?
- Does the person have chronic illness or injury that require ongoing medical attention or skilled nursing care?
- Does the person have Alzheimer's disease, dementia, or short-term memory loss?
- Does the person need rehabilitation?
Brookstone, like many assisted living facilities, requires all applicants to be ambulatory for admission. The community is not a nursing home and is not prepared to care for people who are permanently confined to their beds. For the prospective resident’s safety and well-being, the community may not admit someone who is permanently non-ambulatory.
People who require ongoing medical attention are in the same category as people who are bedridden. As an assisted living community, Brookstone is not licensed to provide continuing medical care to people with chronic injury or illness. If a person’s symptoms can be managed with personal care, the community may be suitable, but Brookstone may not be the right choice for people who need ongoing skilled nursing care.
However, Brookstone happily welcomes people with living Alzheimer's disease, dementia, and memory impairments thanks to their specialized memory care services. The community’s In the Moment® program is specially designed for people with Alzheimer's and dementia, where staff provides exceptional Alzheimer's care. The program assists people with all stages of Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, creating a safe, secure environment where they feel relaxed and appreciated.
Q: How do I know if Brookstone’s In the Moment memory care program is right for me or my loved one?
Living with Alzheimer's disease can be challenging, creating new, unfamiliar hurdles during the third act of a person’s life. Fortunately, Brookstone is there to help with their outstanding Alzheimer’s care and memory care services.
As members of the memory care community, older adults are treated with respect and dignity like independent living and assisted living residents. Caregivers help them with their daily activities (like eating, dressing, and bathing) and help them participate in community events. Memory care services are special because of the structured activities staff use to stimulate the residents’ minds and memories. With their compassionate, patients attitudes the staff help residents learn to live with memory impairments, Alzheimer's and dementia as they navigate their symptoms.

Being a caregiver is one of the most important jobs in today’s world, but everyone needs to take a break from his or her duties to recharge.
