Brookdale at a Glance

Brookdale is a unique, specialist day service for people who are living with varying stages of dementia.

Set in Sandbrook Way, Ainsdale within beautiful, cultivated gardens, Brookdale is a bright, warm, and uplifting environment.

Brookdale offers a safe, secure, and stimulating environment that always promotes dignity and independence. Working together with other specialists, additional support is provided such as speech therapy, occupational therapy, and continence assessment.

Our staff is dedicated to meeting each person’s individual needs, considering their preferences, wishes, and aspirations for future care.

What We Offer

Therapeutic group activities are offered daily, a varied program which includes:

Exercise to music

Entertainment by professional artistes

Supporting people to remain part of their community is very important, with outings to parks, garden centres and other attractions arranged regularly.

The Brookdale Team understands the difficulties people living with dementia and their carers and families face with this progressive illness and are on hand to listen and give guidance, encouragement, advice, and support.

Brookdale is open from 9 am – 5 pm – Monday to Friday.

Referral to the service can be either via a Social Worker who has assessed an individual’s needs or by self-referral. The level of support each person receives depends on their assessed needs.

Thank you for everything you have done for our Mum. We are very grateful for the care that she received

Brookdale was a lifeline for everyone in the family.

Brookdale is a wonderful modern facility, beautifully decorated with newly landscaped gardens

I cannot praise the staff and facility enough.

"The staff are amazing. They are caring and conscientious with a very human approach. I would regularly phone them for advice if I was struggling at home and they were always happy to help."

"Thank you all for the kindness and good care you've shown."

Brookdale staff have provided stability and some routine to my grandfather each week during lockdown. His keyworker has been amazing getting him doing his favourite hobbies

“I just wanted to say thank you for the services you have provided during the coronavirus. I personally would have been lost without the girls visiting my grandfather who I live with.
