Memory care is a method of specialized care for those suffering from brain related illnesses such as Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. Memory care services are provided at Grand Oaks of Palm City and Grand Oaks of Jensen Beach. Our Centers are separated from our assisted living communities for security purposes and the increased levels of care required by memory care residents.
We offer a range of services, dependent upon the severity of a person’s symptoms. In general, caregivers assist residents more often with ADLs or Activities of Daily Living. These activities are redesigned to increase resident response and reconnection to their past or present interests. Activities of daily living can include:
Grand Oaks of Palm City and Grand Oaks of Jensen Beach set in place additional security features and measures to keep our residents safe. Residents are also provided with consistent schedules and assigned caregivers in order to create as stable and stress-free an environment as possible.
Other memory care centers may differ, but here at Grand Oaks of Palm City and Grand Oaks of Jensen Beach, we guarantee that all of our Care Center staff members are certified in Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders (ADRD), Level 1 and Level 2. In addition, we run thorough local, state, federal and level 2 background checks and drug screenings on all staff members.
Our 38-foot-long mobile medical clinic, the Florence Nightingale Express, travels our 13-county service area providing essential exams, tests, vaccinations and treatments to indigent and uninsured at no cost.
