Every 68 seconds, someone in America develops Alzheimer's disease. According to the Alzheimer’s Association, roughly 14 percent of individuals aged 71 or older have some form of dementia*.
At Brooks Rehabilitation, we have dedicated over 35 years to serving the needs of our community by providing some of the most innovative care. With the need for Alzheimer's and dementia care growing at unprecedented rates, we are taking that dedication one step further.
THE GREEN HOUSE® Residences at Bartram Park have been developed using a radically new, non-institutional model that reinvents the experience of long-term care for elders. These homes offer Assisted Living to individuals living with Alzheimer's and other dementias like never before in the state of Florida.
THE GREEN HOUSE® Residences
THE GREEN HOUSE® Residences have been developed using the nationally recognized guidelines of THE GREEN HOUSE® Project - an organization that has pioneered the creation of intimate, residential style homes where residents enjoy specialized care and an excellent quality of life. In Green House homes around the country, residents have the freedom to set their own daily routines, choose their meals and participate in activities they find most meaningful so they can live their lives to its fullest.
A Real Home
The first thing you notice when you step into THE GREEN HOUSE® Residences is how warm and intimate they feel. Our homes feature cozy hearths, a family dining table and comfortable, modern furnishings and décor. With only 12 bedrooms per home and the aroma of home-cooked meals throughout, you can’t help but feel at home.
We know it is the little things that make life meaningful. So whether its quilting, gardening, or simply listening to music, we are dedicated to creating an environment that keeps your loved one engaged and doing what they enjoy the most.
Our specially trained staff will work with you to develop a personalized care plan that offers your loved one the right balance of care and independence.
With a nurse onsite 24/7, you can be assured that we
will have a deep understanding of their needs and will
be there for them for as long as they need us.
As of May 2012, the National Green House Replication Initiative is active in 32 states with 134 homes open and 106 homes in development.
