Brookdale Buckingham, Memory Care Community

We have promised ourselves that we shall always treat our residents as we would our own loved ones. Nothing less than our best will do.
This is the promise that the staff at Brookdale Buckingham and throughout Brookdale Senior Living communities- has shared since our community first opened its doors. It’s a simple promise to be compassionate and kind, understanding and respectful- a promise to become extended family to the seniors entrusted in our care and to our residents who have chosen our Alzheimer’s and Memory Care Community.

The Perfect Location
Our perfect hilltop, country setting is in a quiet neighborhood nested between both Minnechaug Golf Course and Manchester Country Club, yet we’re only minutes away from Manchester Memorial Hospital. The warm, relaxed family atmosphere encourages both you and your loved one to call our community home, just as our current residents and families do. Located in welcoming rural Glastonbury and minutes from I-84 and route 2 in the heart of Connecticut, Brookdale Buckingham is an ideal senior community. From its relaxing, town atmosphere to themed events and day trips to local landmarks, Brookdale Buckingham is a truly well-rounded community of care and life enrichment.

A Wonderful Selection
At Brookdale Buckingham, you will find forty spacious, sun-filled private senior apartments that remind you and your loved one of the comforts of home, and six unique,
L-shaped “friendship suites” that allow each resident to have privacy while offering the security of knowing that they are not alone. All bathrooms are handicap-accessible with built-in shower chairs to promote self care and independence for as long as possible as well as heat lamps to maintain a comfortable temperature.
Brookdale Buckingham was designed architecturally from the ground up with memory care in mind. Reminiscent of a small town, our two wings with 26 residents in each are mirror images of one another with nostalgic themes throughout.

Each wing has comfortable common areas for families to visit with their loved one including a living room with fireplace, dining room, TV area, country kitchen, and two enclosed outdoor patios for both families and residents to enjoy and courtyards. Our walking path allows our residents to get daily exercise and appreciate nature’s wonders while being provided with a safe perimeter for independence by our staff.

Strong, Caring Professional Relationships
Brookdale Buckingham has positioned itself as the leading memory care community in the area, and we understand our role as part of your loved one’s “care team”. The strong relationships we have developed with local hospitals, physicians, home care agencies, churches, and volunteers ensure that our residents are provided with a holistic approach to their continuum of care.

Our Staff
The aesthetics and architectural design of a community are important when finding a new home for your loved one; however, those attributes don’t provide direct care to your loved one. With the amount of interaction our associates have with each resident, every associate is provided with specialized training in dementia care and cognitive impairment. Our associates are genuine in their compassion and are empathetic to the needs of our residents. We all strive to meet the individual needs of each resident and to promote cognitive, sensory, creative and physical enhancement.
We join their journey, they don’t join ours. Your family becomes ours. When you walk into the community and see the residents and the associates interacting, you know in your heart “It feels like home and the right place for your loved one”. We live by the philosophy “We work where our residents live, they don’t live where we work”
Specialized Education/Training
Monthly in-service training is provided on an ongoing basis relating to topics specific to caring for individuals with memory impairment. We are a dedicated memory care community and the staff is accustomed to the behavior expressions that are associated with the diagnosis. Each associate knows how to respond with compassion, understanding, and the sensitivity required while redirecting rather than reacting in a manner that can increase anxiety.

Brookdale Buckingham offers care programs and secure environments for those with Alzheimer's or other types of memory loss.

Enriching the lives of those we serve with compassion, respect, excellence and integrity.
