Memory & Alzheimer's Care in Delray Beach, Florida
Grand Villa of Delray Beach West offers a state of the art Memory Care Neighborhood for residents with challenges such as Alzheimer’s and dementia. This comfortable, home-like environment allows for freedom of movement in an exit-controlled setting, with exceptional care available around-the-clock.
Memory Care residents receive all of our community’s services and amenities, with upgrades and special features to meet their specific needs. Our state of the art medication and resident care technology provides peace of mind by helping to ensure that care is provided on time.
Residents live in private residences, or companion apartments with a roommate. Our apartments are comfortable and inviting, and include many safety features. Each apartment is equipped with state of the art motion sensor lighting, which is activated during nighttime hours. The lighting system also includes special lights in the bathroom, which provide a guiding light at night. When a motion sensor is activated, an alert is sent to the caregivers who can then respond, as needed.
About the Memory Care Program
Our Memory Care program blends cutting edge technology and the most current research in memory care to create activities specifically for Alzheimer’s and dementia. Residents will be involved in daily recreational and therapeutic activities, such as Dakim® Brain Fitness, that encourage independence and preserve dignity.
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. We also designed the following programs to support our residents and their families.
Life Skill Stations
Throughout our Memory Care Neighborhood you will find Life Skills Stations that spark memories, interest, and interaction for our residents. These 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, and choose their own activities.
We also offer Respite Care, which gives family caregivers of a loved one with memory challenges a much needed break from the stresses of home-care. Respite Care residents enjoy our community for a few days, a week or longer. Residents stay in comfortable apartments and enjoy all of the services, amenities, and socialization benefits of our community, while a family caregiver takes a break.
