Brookmeade Community Foundation

Supporting the residents of The Baptist Home at Brookmeade

As we near the end of our lives, each day takes on a greater significance. For seniors living with Alzheimer’s and dementia, it is moments that matter.

At the Community at Brookmeade, we strive to make each day memorable and each moment count. Our 200 residents live in dignity and peace and each day brings friendship, respect and laughter.

Care at this level requires resources beyond what individual retirement savings and the government can provide. We need the support of our neighbors and the local business community.

Gifts and donations may be made by mail or directly on our website using PayPal.

The NEW DAY Program provides structured yet creative activities for our residents living with Alzheimer’s, dementia, depression and other chronic illnesses.

This special program is offered six days a week and has produced amazing results.  Of the 12 sessions offered each week, approximately 95% of residents participate in one more sessions.

In the year since the New Day program began, staff are seeing marked improvement in resident morale and behavior.

The Therapeutic Courtyard Project will provide residents with a safe and lovely outdoor garden space to enjoy nature. Special care needs to be taken to address the needs of residents including mobility challenges, precarious physical health issues and special concerns for residents living with Alzheimer’s and dementia.
