The Personalized Assisted Living Promise: “Respect for Individual Preferences”
This customized and person-centered experience is designed to honor your individuality and respect those preferences that make you unique. In our community, “Respect for Individual Preferences” is our promise to you. Our way of discovering your personal needs, unique qualities and values requires the following approach, which is unique to our community.
The Personalized Assisted Living Approach: Listen. Recognize. Integrate.
The Inn at Freedom Plaza’s Personalized Assisted Living program is designed to accommodate individuals who need daily assistance to maintain a relatively independent living lifestyle. The Inn is a family-centered community that serves the physical, social and emotional needs of residents and their families. After listening to our residents, we recognize who they are and the importance of developing relationships, and then we integrate their desires into every aspect of community life.

Clare Bridge Dining Program
As a part of the Brookdale CHOICE approach to dining, the Clare Bridge Dining Program was designed by a team of experts specializing in dementia care, culinary associates, and registered dieticians. This unique dietary program sustains the resident’s opportunity to enjoy and master the dining experience. The program offers such specialized aspects as:
Ø  Dementia Friendly Menus provide diverse offerings that help prevent weight-loss. Selections are easy to manage, familiar and are appealing to the senses.
Ø  Individualized Dining Assistance includes evaluating each resident to determine the level of prompting assistance needed to preserve the resident’s use of utensils as long as possible.
Ø  The Supportive Dining Environment incorporates small dining rooms with consistent seating to support the challenges of those with dementia. This encourages familiarity and socialization while supporting the needs of the residents through the assignment of resident care assistants. Music, centerpieces, reFRESH warm scented wash towels and fresh linens enhance the dining experience for our residents.
