Frequently Asked Questions

What is memory care like in the Evergreen neighborhood?

Memory care in the Evergreen neighborhood is known for its exceptional level of attention to detail when it comes to dementia care, support, and education. When you decide on memory care at The Lakeside at Amelia Island, you're making a choice to be part of a community that is dedicated to fostering a calm, enriching, and safe environment, supported by a team well-trained in the most effective methods for caring for those living with dementia.

At what stage should someone with dementia go into memory care in Fernandina Beach, FL?

If your loved one has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's or dementia and you witness indications that they are encountering difficulties in their day-to-day activities, requiring constant support, or experiencing fear and isolation while living at home, it may be an appropriate moment to consider memory care. Seniors with memory issues are at a heightened risk of wandering, engaging in physically risky behaviors that may result in falls, and displaying other unsafe behaviors.

Memory care facilities and programs cater specifically to seniors who are experiencing memory loss or other cognitive impairments associated with aging. These facilities offer a serene and respectful setting that encourages independence and personal choice while also minimizing safety concerns and emotional distress. Here are five challenges of living with dementia that can prompt a move to a memory care community.

What is the difference between memory care and assisted living?

While both memory care and assisted living facilities offer care for individuals with cognitive impairments, memory care is specifically structured to meet the needs of those with dementia. This leads to a more holistic approach in memory care, where residents spend their days with highly skilled professionals proficient in managing dementia. Moreover, memory care facilities offer dementia-friendly activities and employ staff who are well-trained in understanding the psychological and physical effects of cognitive impairments. To understand the key differences, you may find this post from The Arbor Company blog helpful.

What is the difference between memory care and skilled nursing in Fernandina Beach, FL?

When it comes to dementia and Alzheimer's care, both nursing homes and memory care facilities offer valuable support. At The Lakeside at Amelia Island, dedicated staff members are specifically trained to handle the complexities of dementia care. They provide a well-structured daily routine filled with engaging activities to prevent behaviors associated with anxiety and depression. Additionally, meals are prepared to maintain the residents' dignity and independence, while the environment is designed to prioritize their safety and security.

On the other hand, a nursing home (also referred to as a skilled nursing facility), provides a higher level of care in a clinical setting. It caters to individuals with significant medical requirements, offering 24-hour assistance and monitoring. These facilities are ideal for seniors with complex medical conditions who require hands-on support and help with tasks beyond their daily routine.
