With approximately 6.2 million U.S. residents living with Alzheimer’s dementia, it is likely that you have been affected personally by this disease. When memory issues take hold, families often struggle with the decision of what to do for their loved ones. Victoria Landing, located in Melbourne, offers luxury retirement living with memory care!
Are the Memory Care Accommodations Private?
The Memory Care section at Victoria Landing is referred to as The Boardwalk. This lovely area offers 28 private studio apartments. Your loved one will still feel independent as they have their own studio apartment consisting of a comfortable bedroom and private bathroom. In order to make your loved one feel even more comfortable, bringing items of familiarity to decorate their apartment can be helpful.
Are the Meals Provided?
At The Boardwalk, as with all of Victoria Landing, meals are included and provided. Our talented chef prepares meals for our residents. As memory fades, the ability to safely use kitchen appliances, such as stoves and microwaves also diminishes. To avoid these safety hazards, the apartments in our Memory Care area do not include kitchens. But, rest assured, that our residents are provided beautiful meals prepared by our chef. Pasta e Fagioli, chicken cacciatore, and teriyaki grilled salmon are a small sampling of the delicious main courses offered to our residents. Our chef can accommodate food allergies, as well. And, if your loved one doesn’t care for the meal being offered, there are other options available. We want your loved one to be happy and healthy!
What Activities Are Available for Your Loved One?
Victoria Landing is beautifully situated on the Indian River. We offer peaceful grounds for our residents. For those in our Memory Care area, we offer an outdoor courtyard and strolling paths. We also offer many activities to keep your loved one occupied, entertained, and happy.
We offer fun activities such as sing-alongs, outdoor games like kickball, aromatherapy, and concerts! In order to make our residents with memory issues more comfortable, we also offer old-time sitcom viewing and snacks. On Sundays, we offer traditional hymns. We find that these types of activities are enjoyable and comforting as they are familiar to your loved one. All of the above activities are specifically for our Boardwalk residents.
Is Medical Care Available?
As a retirement community, we understand that your loved one may have medical needs. We have staff on-site, 24-hours a day. Your loved one will always have access to assistance. We offer assistance with daily living activities knowing that our memory care residents often need help remembering daily tasks, such as hygiene routines. We also provide medication management, so you don’t have to worry about your loved one remembering to take their medication or accidentally taking too much.
While many retirement facilities only have a Standard License, we have gone beyond that to obtain a Limited Nursing Services License. This allows us to provide a higher level of care. Beyond assisting with medication, hygiene, toileting, and mobility, we can also offer the administration and regulation of portable oxygen, first aid and wound care, and a variety of other nursing services.
