Memory & Alzheimer's Care in Lakeland, Florida
At Grand Villa of Lakeland, centrally located between Orlando and Tampa, we offer state of the art Memory Care for residents with challenges such as Alzheimer’s and dementia. The private Memory Care Neighborhood provides all of our community’s services and amenities, with upgrades and special features to meet the needs of these residents. Our state of the art medication and resident care technology provides peace of mind by helping to ensure that care is provided on time. This comfortable environment allows for freedom of movement in an exit-controlled setting.
When you visit our Memory Care Neighborhood, you’ll see that we provide meaningful ways for residents to engage with their surroundings. For example, we have specially designed areas that spark memories, interest, and interaction for our residents. These Life Skill Stations re-create familiar situations from the past, like a baby nursery, a garden, an office or hobby workbench, to engage residents in familiar situations which can sustain their memories and provide cognitive exercise and physical movement. This special environment allows residents to freely explore, touch, choose their own activities and to live life with a purpose®.
About the Memory Care Program
For dementia care, we focus on activities to enhance general health, personal relationships, and communication skills. We concentrate on familiar abilities to avoid frustration at not being able to accomplish an activity. We laugh, smile, make eye contact, and give lots of personal encouragement. If a resident becomes anxious or upset, we take a break. Light exercise programs help residents maintain strength and flexibility.
If you are a caregiver for a loved one with memory challenges, we also offer respite stays of a few days, a week or longer. Participants enjoy all the services, amenities, and socialization benefits, while a family caregiver is able to take a break.
