Cognitive diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia are life-changing for both the individual and family members. When the time comes that a loved one can no longer live safely at home, families often turn to the support of a dedicated memory support community like Laurel Square at The Village at Gainesville.
“We understand that our residents living with cognitive issues have unique and often changing needs,” says Wayne Vinson, Sales Leader at The Village at Gainesville, a senior living rental community that offers independent living, assisted living and memory support. “To that end, we have a community that affords the best possible quality of life for those who call us home.”
Enriching Lives Through Living Well
It is our honor to enrich the lives of the seniors we serve throughout their memory loss journey. Our team members have been trained in the Positive Approach® to Care, an approach developed by Teepa Snow, one of America’s leading experts on dementia, which focuses on celebrating the abilities that remain rather than focusing on what has been lost.
“Our ultimate goal is to honor and support the individual and nurture relationships that recognize the importance of privacy, choice, dignity and purpose,” says Wayne. “We also emphasize the importance of family and friends in the journey and provide opportunities for them to be involved on a regular basis in the life of our community.”
Purposeful Design for Comfort and Safety
Memory support at The Village at Gainesville takes place in our two memory support neighborhoods, Laurel Square and Azalea Trace. Both of these secure sections of our community have been specifically created for the unique needs of our memory support residents. Each neighborhood houses a limited number of residents, which allows us to provide the optimal staff-to-resident ratios.
By providing personalized, individualized care, we’re able to focus on the strengths, personal preferences and talents of our residents in the most meaningful way. We’re also able to learn as much as we can about the individual so we can provide support to family members and friends. Seniors will enjoy a life filled with fulfillment and purpose. Their loved ones will enjoy peace of mind, knowing the one they love is secure and cared for.
Personalized Service and Compassionate Care
We understand that you wish your loved one with dementia to be as loved and as cared for as if they were at home. We are here to provide that. Our purposeful and evidence-based care is provided under the direction of a licensed nurse and specially trained associates dedicated to the well-being and comfort of each resident. But that’s not all. We also treat each individual as if they were our own family members, honoring, respecting and caring for the person they are.
