When it comes to caring for residents with memory challenges, there is no “one size fits all” approach. Here at the Gardens at Brook Ridge, a Pharr nursing home, we understand that each and every one of our residents has a unique set of needs when it comes to caring for their health and overall wellbeing. It is vital to seniors who struggle with dementia and other forms of cognitive or memory decline that they receive a customized approach of care, from their unique nutritious, brain-healthy diet, to their preferred types of therapies.
At The Gardens at Brook Ridge, we offer a variety of activities on a daily basis that are specifically designed to stimulate the minds and memories of our residents. Some of these activities include:
Here at the Gardens at Brook Ridge, we believe that supporting the health of our residents is all-inclusive, from their daily exercise, diets, socialization, and memory care.
Residents will be fed by a trained chef that caters to the MIND Diet, which prioritizes food that is proven to promote healthy brain function. There is a sensory spa, which can reduce tension, agitation, anxiety, depression, and anger, which are common behavioral side effects in seniors suffering from Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Residents can also enjoy staff-led exercise classes, from yoga and basic stretching to water aerobics in the beautiful outdoor pool. At The Gardens at Brook Ridge, there is little that isn’t available for residents, and their health and safety are always prioritized! Memory care is a specialty of this community, but it is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to how seniors with dementia are supported on a daily basis.
Plus, at this nursing home, seniors will find a friendly community that understands the struggles they may be dealing with, helping them feel less isolated and alone. If your loved one is searching for a place to feel both supported and understood in their aging journey and memory challenges, The Gardens at Brook Ridge is the place for them!
