Maintaining identity and a strong sense of self comes from living a life filled with meaning, purpose and contributions. At Brookdale White Rock, we believe having dementia shouldn't change that. For those with Alzheimer's disease or other types of dementia, our community, located in the close-knit neighborhood known as Lake Highlands, an historic area of Dallas, Texas, offers a safe environment and exceptional memory care.
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 you get the peace of mind knowing that our staff is there 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Belonging and Purpose
On any given day, you’ll see our residents engaged in such sports as balloon volleyball or kickball, socializing at parties and other get-togethers, reminiscing about the old days and enjoying music. Maybe you’ll find them playing cards, getting coffee with a friend or attending movie nights. Each of these activities is part of a carefully designed care program to help our residents live their best life.
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.
Built for Safety, Ease
Because Brookdale White rock specializes in memory care, our community has been designed with our residents in mind. With monitored entries and exits and an enclosed courtyard and garden, they remain safe while having complete freedom of movement. Our apartments, common areas, dining area and outdoor spaces are all built to be memory-friendly.
Three savory 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.

Memory Care Done Right
Our Alzheimer's and dementia care, called the Clare Bridge program, is deeply rooted in a person-centered approach. Each resident is surrounded by others with the same cognitive abilities, to give them the secure feeling of fitting in. Clare Bridge focuses on sustaining feelings of belonging, purpose and safety while seeking to preserve a sense of self.
The Clare Bridge Daily Path provides residents with a structured, yet fun, routine of activities reminiscing for mental workouts, dancing for physical exercise that help maintain their abilities and encourage the use of their current skills, even with advanced expressions of the disease.
Our memory care program is rooted in a person-centered approach that preserves identity and sense of self. Our secure communities provide a daily path of engagement that allows residents to flourish, even with advanced expressions of dementia.
Forget the cliché stories you’ve heard about seniors sitting around falling asleep to sit-com reruns. When you move into a Brookdale assisted living community, you can enjoy a life rich in quality care, genuine friendships and fun activities.
From quality dining to assistance with personal grooming and managing medication, our assisted living communities give you the chance to make the most of your golden years. We welcome and encourage new residents to get involved with activities, which change daily. You’ll also have more time to pursue your passions because we handle the mundane chores, like housekeeping and laundry.
Many of our campuses are conveniently located near restaurants, parks, shopping, hospitals, places of worship and more. Most campuses even offer transportation services, so you can enjoy the perfect combination of quality care and independence.
Do you want to enjoy everything retirement has to offer without the hassle of things like mowing the lawn, cooking every meal and cleaning the house.
As an independent living resident, you can let someone else handle the chores, so you can do more of what you love. Maybe you want to spend more time on arts and crafts, learn how to play a musical instrument or attend morning yoga classes. Or you might want to join a book club, meet your friends for a resident social or go on excursions to local museums.
No matter how you want to spend your days, independent living gives you the chance to redefine what it means to be independent while enjoying an active lifestyle and pursuing your passions.
Sometimes you need more than a few days in the hospital to recover from surgery or other medical events, but you also need more rehabilitation before you can head home. This is one of the most common reasons people come to a skilled nursing facility: because they need a little extra time to get back on their feet.
Perhaps you had joint replacement surgery or experienced a stroke, and now you need physical therapy before you can get back to life as usual. Or maybe you are facing chronic conditions, and you could benefit from round-the-clock care. No matter what kind of care you need, skilled nursing provides you with the advanced medical resources you need in an environment that feels like home.

We Believe Every Day of Life Matters
With the right care and the gentle assistance of a team of experts, we believe your quality of life is important. While it’s normal to be afraid or sad when you’re facing a life-limiting illness, your fear doesn't have to define you and uncertainty doesn't have to define your journey. Instead, with the support of your hospice team, you can find a different way forward, minimizing pain, embracing moments of joy with your loved ones, and living each day of life with the care it deserves.
Your Brookdale Hospice Experience
It’s an undeniable reality: Hospice is different from other healthcare. Delivering it is often as much a calling as it is a profession. That’s why we believe you’ll find that our hospice teams are staffed with individuals who provide more than non-curative medical treatments. They offer real social and emotional connections. They deliver effective treatment with real care. And they provide a wide range of physical and emotional tools to help you and your family embrace hope and peace.
In fact this whole-person approach comes naturally to us because Brookdale has been an industry leader in providing exceptional senior living for over 40 years. In that time we’ve studied, researched, and learned through practice about how to make people feel comfortable. About maintaining dignity. About celebrating a sense of self, and maintaining a connection with what makes you, even in the face of great challenges.
You or your loved one can benefit from those lessons. Together, with our care team’s gentle assistance, and the right amount of support, you can embrace each day of life with the value it deserves.
