Nestled into the base of the Catalina Foothills in East Tucson, AZ, Brookdale Tanque Verde is a memory care community that prides itself on helping residents maintain a high quality of life. Monthly costs at Brookdale Tanque Verde average $4,059, which is very comparable to the Tucson average of $4,044. Prices vary based on room option, which include private, studio, or companion suites. Included in these costs is medication management, assistance with the activities of daily living (ADLs), three chef-prepared meals that are designed to help dementia patients, laundry, housekeeping, linens, transportation, cable, cognitive support, a 24-hour emergency response system, and a wide range of activities. Staff are trained to follow the Clare Bridge program, which concentrates on strengthening current cognitive function through preferred interests and carefully bridging the gap where there are deficiencies. Additionally, to help strengthen overall happiness and cognitive function, the memory care community provides a light framework for each day that includes four activities shown to help those suffering from dementia improve their state of mind. The routine includes mental workouts in the morning, a physical activity during the day along with life skill activities that help add purpose and belonging to residents' days, and person-centered enrichment that uses a resident's social history to match them with an appropriate activity. While the structured days help residents, there is flexibility built into each day so that residents can unwind and relax in the secure outdoor courtyard, the spacious library, game room, living room/common room, or sunbathe in the porch area. To enhance residents' experience at the East Tucson memory care community, weekly outings and drives are planned to attractions like the Sabino Canyon, Agua Caliente Park, and the Saguaro National Monument.
