Details About Brookdale Juan Tabo Place


Brookdale Juan Tabo Place, formerly Emeritus at The Cottages, provides Memory Care in Albuquerque, NM. Ourmunity is conveniently located in the far North East Heights area of Albuquerque at the base of the Sandia Mountains. A variety of shopping, banks and restaurants are close by and downtown Albuquerque is a quick drive west straight across Montgomery Blvd. and then south on I-25/I-85.

When families visit, there are lots of activities close by including the Sandia Peak Aerial Tramway, from which they can see the entire expanse of Albuquerque. The tram travels nearly three miles over deep canyons and breathtaking terrain. Watching the sunset from the observation deck atop the 10,378-foot Sandia Peak affords an 11,000 square-mile panoramic view of the Rio Grande Valley and the Land of Enchantment.

Brookdale Juan Tabo Place is a quick 20-minute drive into downtown and to Albuquerque’s Historic Old Town with its wonderful shops, restaurants, museums and hotels lining the plaza. And Santa Fe is just about an hour from our community. Should residents’ health needs require more intensive care, there is a skilled nursing home just down the street from our community.

A Wonderful Selection

With a total of 31 private and shared studios, we can accommodate up to 54 residents. And in fact, most of our residents share rooms and benefit from the companionship of each other. This helps alleviates feelings of isolation which in turn can minimize depression. Each room includes a bed, chest of drawers and night stand for each resident. In addition, there’s either a private bath or one bath shared between two rooms. All of our studios offer views and many look out onto the courtyard and from some studios the mountains can be seen in the distance. The monthly rent also includes linen service, three meals a day plus snacks, a full schedule of planned activities, all utilities (except phone and cable), individually controlled heating and air-conditioning, a 24-hour emergency response system and access to our own beauty salon.

Our memory care community is divided into two cottages. Each cottage offers spacious living and dining areas. Cottage #1 has two dining rooms, allowing our higher functioning residents to eat separately. The décor takes residents back to the past with an antique radio, Singer sewing machine, hanging quilts, mismatched furniture and lots of knick-knacks and are reminiscent of a traditional grandparent’s home which might be much like theirs may have been.

Our floor plan allows residents to wander. Inside are wide hallways that go in a circular fashion so that residents can easily make their way back to where they started. They can also wander outside into our secured courtyard which is beautifully landscaped with pathways, flower beds, gazebos and benches. Everything is done for a reason but most especially to give residents a sense of freedom and independence, all within a safe environment over which our staff keeps careful watch.

Strong, Caring, Professional Relationships

We can bring in outside physical and occupational therapists as necessary as well as podiatrists. Services are provided either in the resident’s room or in one of our common areas and is whatever works best for the resident. We’ve had great success with our therapists, in fact, one of our residents couldn’t walk without a walker when he first moved in. Thanks to a combination of "senior-living-solutions/therapy/">physical and occupational therapy and the support of our staff, he was able to walk on his own after being here for just a month. We can also bring in hospice as necessary. Typically we give our families three different "senior-living-solutions/hospice/">hospice agencies to choose from. Counselors also can be provided along with the services of a chaplain, should our family members need that type of support.

Our Staff

Our staff is extremely friendly and devoted to residents. In fact, some have been here since our community opened in 1996. They stay for one simple reason and that is that they love the residents. Sure, it can be challenging but at the same time helping people who are in such need can be extremely rewarding. Each resident is so different and Alzheimer’s affects each person differently. Our staff receives extensive training by our Resident Care Director and understands how to handle residents who may be exhibiting “behaviors.”

Our staff has an extraordinary amount of compassion and patience. We were pleased when one of our family members told us that their loved one chose our community because “we had real heart.” Another family member noted that she always saw everyone hugging each other. We attribute this to all of our staff members including our Executive Director, Community Relations Director, Life Enrichment Director, Resident Services Director, Business Office Director, Dining Services Director and staff plus our terrific Housekeeping Director and staff.

A Wonderful, Active Lifestyle

In addition to our beautiful setting with the Sandia Mountains creating a spectacular backdrop, the quality of care provided at Brookdale Juan Tabo Place senior living community is another key reason we have become so well known in this part of Albuquerque. Our dementia care community is specially designed for people with memory disorders. For example, our wide walkways flow in a circular fashion so that residents don’t get frustrated when they come to the end of a hallway. Instead, they can continue their “journey” by wandering around the community again or by going outside into our secured courtyard area. In addition, our caregivers go above and beyond to make sure residents participate in our many activities. It’s not unusual for visitors to see caregivers entertaining residents in fact, on a recent tour, one of our visitors told us how surprised she was to see one of our staff members dancing for our residents. Not only are our caregivers incredibly patient, compassionate and caring, but they are also extremely skilled in caring for very sick Alzheimer’s residents. With our training, we are able to provide a level of care that many memory care communities cannot.

Alzheimer’s strikes each person differently and in some cases the disease progresses to the point where residents are unable to do anything for themselves. Even in these instances, we can keep the majority of our residents here. We have around-the-clock nursing to provide assisted living services as necessary and we can bring in Hospice to provide end-of-life care including pain management. We also make sure our families are supported and will make therapists and chaplains available to counsel them as necessary. Our families get tremendous peace of mind knowing that their loved one can remain in the comfort of their own home at Brookdale Juan Tabo Place.

At Brookdale Juan Tabo Place, our activity program is also tailored towards our residents’ unique needs. We offer a variety of activities including daily exercise designed to help residents build strength, flexibility and mobility, live entertainment, pet therapy, bingo, ball toss, cooking classes and movie nights. We also have a men’s sports group which our ladies love to be involved with and our “Red Hat” society’s monthly tea party which our gentlemen often attend. We also have a special activity called Take 10, when a caregiver takes ten minutes to interact on a one-on-one basis with a resident whether that’s just chatting, reading, giving them a back rub or doing their hair. We also do arts and crafts typically geared to the time of year. Memory games are a big part of our activities program. For example, we may play a memory game that asks residents to recall something from their past or a trivia game that focuses on an old movie like The Wizard of Oz. During our Family Nights, we typically bring in an outside speaker or our own in-house experts to talk about Alzheimer’s and the disease process. These are just a few of our many activities designed to help residents maintain their memory and give them ample opportunities to socialize with each other which can help prevent depression.

Partnering with the Local Neighborhood Community

We host a small Alzheimer’s support group called Café Mananero on a monthly basis for the families of our residents. We meet on the second Wednesday of the month at a local restaurant for brunch. Café Mananero is the best kind of support group where our family members who have had loved ones at Brookdale Juan Tabo Place for a long time are here to support our newer family members. They can share their feelings about our community and the quality of care we provide better than we can after all, and they have all been dealing with a loved one who has Alzheimer’s. They can also provide an invaluable perspective to help our newer family members understand what to expect as the disease progresses. We are grateful to our families for supporting others this way. Our community, including staff and family members, also participate in the Alzheimer’s Association’s annual Walk to End Alzheimer’s to raise money for Alzheimer’s research.

We also host a variety of events on a monthly basis most of which are open to anyone in the local community including seniors and their families. At Christmastime, we organize a Jingle Mix and Mingle social during which we offer food, entertainment and door prizes. In September, we have our own State Fair Days that basically brings the state fair to our residents and anyone else in the area who wishes to join in the festivities. We serve popular fair food such as turkey legs, Indian tacos, cotton candy, snow cones, hamburgers and hot dogs as well as have several games and entertainers. In October we host a Harvest Fest. Every month there’s something fun and different going on at Brookdale Juan Tabo Place.

Fine Dining

Our dementia care community offers a total of three dining rooms, one which is dedicated to our higher functioning residents. We serve three meals a day. Our food tends to be more comfort food like Yankee pot roast, meatloaf and spaghetti. Plus our chef prepares all kinds of traditional Mexican cuisine which the residents love. We can accommodate all special dietary needs including mechanical soft and pureed food. Snacks, which might include ice cream, chicken nuggets, egg rolls, cookies and fruit and veggie trays are also brought out to residents three times a day. Our refrigerator is also fully stocked should a resident feel like a midnight snack. In addition, we use bright Fiesta ware which, studies have shown, helps residents with memory impairments focus better on their food.
