Seniors with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease need specialized care, which should always be personalized to their unique situation. In memory care nursing homes, residents receive supervised care, assistance with daily living, and medical monitoring. And in many cases, staff members provide purpose-driven activities to help residents enjoy each day.
At Discovery Village At Stuart, we provide SHINE® Memory Care, a program designed to help every resident live their best life, every day. Learn more about our memory care program by contacting our team at 772-291-1063 or scheduling a tour today.
What Is SHINE® Memory Care?
At Discovery Village At Stuart, our memory care nursing program provides the care your loved one needs. The SHINE® Memory Care program incorporates six individual points of focus to create a holistic plan that ensures each resident’s care program is tailored to their needs and abilities—one that will have the most impact in supporting and enriching their health by providing the opportunity to live their best life, every day.
Our six individual points of focus help define a more comprehensive—and customized—care plan. Available exclusively at Discovery Senior Living communities nationwide, SHINE® is our deeply personalized approach to memory care, which uses scientific principles to promote engagement, comprehension, and lifestyle quality for seniors living with dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease and other memory-related issues.
