Memory & Alzheimer's Care in DeLand, Florida
Grand Villa of DeLand offers a Memory Care program for seniors with memory challenges such as dementia and Alzheimer's. Our devoted Memory Care staff is trained and dedicated to providing the best around-the-clock care. Residents live in our private, exit-controlled Memory Care Neighborhood, where they enjoy all the services and amenities of our community, with upgrades and special features that meet their individual needs.
Accommodations can be private or companion apartments, ranging in size from large studios to spacious one bedrooms. Our apartments are comfortable and inviting, and include many safety features such as state of the art motion sensor lighting, which is activated during night time hours. The lighting system also includes special lights in the bathroom, which provide a guiding light at night. When a motion sensor is activated, an alert is sent to the caregivers who can then respond, as needed.
About the Memory Care Program
Our staff engages with residents daily in therapeutic and recreational activities that encourage continued independence while preserving dignity. We focus on activities to enhance general health, personal relationships, and communication skills. We concentrate on familiar abilities in order to avoid frustration when a resident is not able to accomplish an activity. We laugh, smile, and make eye contact. We give lots of positive encouragement. If a resident becomes anxious or upset, we take a break.
Light exercise programs help residents maintain muscular strength and flexibility, while opportunities abound for social interaction and companionship through daily activities and events. We encourage family members to visit often and participate in activities, programs and special events.
Life Skill Stations
Our Memory Care Life Skill Stations spark memories, interest, and interaction for our residents. These stations recreate familiar situations from the past — like a baby nursery, a garden, an office, or a hobby workbench. Residents become socially engaged in these familiar situations, which can sustain their memories, as well as provide important cognitive and physical exercise.
Residents are free to explore, touch, and choose their own activities. Our indoor gardens, screened porch area, and the entire Memory Care Neighborhood provide a meaningful way for residents to engage in their surroundings.
Short stays for seniors with memory challenges are available for a few days, a week, or longer. Participants enjoy all the services, amenities, and socialization benefits of our community, while family caregivers take a break.
