Aston Gardens is proud to offer SHINE® Memory Care for the treatment of
dementia and other memory-related issues. Built on the foundation of deep
personalization, our memory care program incorporates six points of focus (e.g., communication, enrichment, and self-discovery). Our nurses and aides welcome new residents with open arms and guide seniors through a daily journey of discovery and revelation. Each of our certified team members has a solid grasp of best practices in the treatment of dementia and Alzheimer’s. SHINE® takes a practical, inclusive, and nurturing approach. At our campus, we cherish our ability to care for our residents who find themselves unable to care for themselves.
Our senior living programs are designed to instill a sense of accomplishment for our residents, bolstering their sense of independence. As with Aston Gardens’ assisted living communities, residents in our memory care programs in FL have the best care possible along with all the amenities and services for which our award-winning senior-living communities have become well known.
What Are Memory Care Programs?
Memory care programs provide specialized care for individuals with Alzheimer’s or other types of dementia. In these safe, secure communities, residents receive around-the-clock care from nurses and certified nurse assistants. Staff members have training and experience in caring for individuals with dementia. Many people need more intensive levels of care as they age. In our memory care programs, they can receive the help they need.
