What Type of Medical Services Are Offered within the Community Premises?

How Do I Determine the Level of Care Required?
At Discovery Village At Naples, our healthcare professionals will conduct a thorough assessment of your loved one’s condition before determining which senior living option is best for them. This assessment is important as only by correctly identifying the level of care your loved one requires will we be able to come up with an appropriate, customized care plan. Additionally, we will also liaise with your loved one’s doctor, if any, about their medical history so as to get a complete understanding of their needs.
How Do I Pay for the Costs of Senior Living?
The costs of senior living can be paid in a variety of ways, such as through your own personal funds, insurance payouts, Social Security Pensions as well as retirement benefits. For seniors who have served the country in our armed forces, payment can also be made via the Attendance (A&A) pension benefits and Veteran Aid (VA).
If you have any questions regarding payment, our team is more than happy to answer, and guide you through them at any time.
What are the Differences between Independent Living, Assisted Living and Memory Care?
- Independent Living: For seniors who require minimal care and are able to go about their daily activities with little to no supervision, independent living is the best option for them. Seniors in our independent living program will benefit from having their housekeeping needs and meals taken care of, which frees their time up to pursue their own hobbies.
- Assisted Living: For seniors who require help with activities of daily living, assisted living is the best option for them. Our 24-hour nursing team will ensure that all their needs are taken care of promptly, allowing them to live a dignified and happy life despite their reduced independence.
- Memory Care: For seniors suffering from Alzheimer’s and other memory-related problems, Memory care is the best option for them. At Discovery Village At Naples, our SHINE® Memory Care program, which is a unique, customized approach to caring for our residents, ensure that the quality of life of your loved one will not be compromised despite their conditions.
