Assisted living offers individuals assistance with the activities of daily living—dressing, bathing, dining, medication management—while still offering every opportunity for maintaining independence. When researching a community offering assisted living, be sure to conduct a visit and observe the atmosphere. Find out about how they staff nurses. Are they there 24/7 or there during the day and on call at night. This really does make a difference. Are residents smiling and comfortable? Is there positive social interaction? Are meals served on time and with attention to detail? Talk with staff, as well as with other family members you meet and get their input as well.

Memory care provides a specialized atmosphere for residents coping with memory loss, Alzheimer’s or other dementia-related disorders. Therapeutic activities and programs help maximize cognitive development, diminish anxiety, lessen confusion and increase peace of mind.

Occasional memory problems are common for individuals over age 65. However, people with dementia cannot retrieve information and in most cases, lose the ability to remember. Dementia can be a variety of diagnoses, the most common of which is Alzheimer’s. This disease begins slowly, but over time, symptoms worsen.

A few factors to watch for: a senior who suddenly stops doing a longtime hobby, or withdraws. Sudden weight loss. Change in grooming habits. A house in disorder. An inability to follow conversations. If you suspect that your loved one’s memory loss is disrupting their daily routine, it could be time to seek medical advice.

We offer a quality memory care program that provides countless benefits such as safety, nutrition and professional support. Our activities and programs provide mental stimulation and interaction. We offer therapeutic tools such as music and art that can awaken the senses and provide moments of personal success. In addition, memory care residents benefit from the bustling environment and enriching ambiance of the entire Towne Club Windermere community.

What a wonderful and caring staff that has made a huge difference in my sister’s life. She moved from a group home in another state and had no interest in living. She spent most of her time very depressed and in bed. The staff at Towne Club Windermere provided outstanding care and encouragement which has resulted in a complete turnaround. Now my sister participates in activities, interacts with other residents and works to improve her physical fitness. She’s even reading again. It’s truly a miracle and we know it’s all the staff we want to thank. Thanks for building a great team at Towne Club. You have saved my sister’s life.”
