At Discovery Village, we understand the challenges people with dementia face. When your loved one enters our memory care community, our goal is to guide them along a journey of discovery in all they do. Our nurses and certified nurse assistants, with ongoing education and specialized training in memory care diseases, chart a course of exploration for them that touches on various important aspects of life. Our program is designed to rebuild and preserve that which their affliction has taken from them. From quality meals to personalized care and attention, you can rest easy knowing your family members are in the best hands, receiving the best care. You have our word on it.
What Are Memory Care Communities?
Individuals with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease need an extra level of care. Memory care programs provide long-term care designed to meet the needs of these residents through supervised care, assistance with daily living, and medical monitoring. They typically involve purpose-driven activities that enrich the lives of residents.
Some of the benefits of memory care programs include the assistance of specially trained team members, the peace of mind that comes with knowing your loved one is in a safe, secure environment, and opportunities for residents to interact and socialize. If you have considered a memory care program for your loved one, Discovery Village At Melbourne offers high-quality care at our luxurious, comfortable Melbourne location.
