More than 580,000 people over 65 in Florida are living with Alzheimer’s. It’s the most common form of dementia. Memory care facilities are one option to relieve the burden and stress of providing care alone. Over 806,000 family members in the Sunshine State support a loved one living with dementia.
The Waters of Cape Coral Senior Living is an assisted living and memory care community. We specialize in clean, comforting, and personalized care for older adults living with memory loss. Our scenic location among the mangroves and palm trees allows residents to live with passion and purpose.
What is memory care?
Memory care provides purposeful assisted living services for people living with Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Team members assist with activities of daily living and let residents experience a higher level of personal care.
Neurocognitive disorders like Alzheimer’s are progressive. At-home care may be manageable in the early stages. 24-hour care and supervision will be required at some point. Memory care lifts this burden from family members struggling to provide care.
Memory Care at The Waters of Cape Coral Senior Living
Alzheimer’s and dementia senior care is available in The Cottage at The Waters of Cape Coral. This serene and secure area of our community allows older adults to live independently at their pace.
The Cottage has a higher team-to-resident ratio to ensure personalized care and experiences. Benefits of our memory care community include a focus on cleanliness, data-based therapy, purposeful engagement, and family inclusion.
Neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to adapt and change through forming new neural pathways. Ageless Grace is a seated workout that promotes brain plasticity. This data-based mind and fitness exercise program is led by specialized team members daily.
My Moment is a way to celebrate the milestones and memories of each resident. Themed parties, supervised outings, and other special events can help people living with dementia feel valued.
Dementia Live invites family members to experience and gain an empathic understanding of having cognition impairment. This immersive class simulates the challenges of Alzheimer’s and offers opportunities to connect with other families going through similar situations.
Creating community among residents is best achieved through engaging the senses, promoting creativity, and connecting fine motor skills. Life workstations can help residents feel a sense of purpose and belonging.
An estimated 40 percent of people with Alzheimer’s also experience depression. Allowing seniors to build new relationships can ease their anxiety and reduce their chance of agitation. Some of our signature social programs include:
- Green Thumb Club
- Art Throb Club
- My Legacy Album
- MINDful Menu options
- Music therapy
- Pet therapy visits
