Recent reviews of Memory Care in Fernandina Beach, FL
Osprey Village Assisted Living in Amelia Island, FL

Staff very friendly and accommodating. Always meeting new and very interesting new residents, all become family. Activities are very varied and always fun. Town is charming and laid back. Very good medical facilities. Attractive 2-3 bedroom stand alone homes (93) and 40 apartments. 2 blocks from the beach.

The Jane Adams House in Fernandina Beach, FL

The food is good. The staff is good. It's fine overall. If you're interested, just make sure you get on the waiting list as soon as you can .

Anthem Lakes in Atlantic Beach, FL

The facility itself is nice. Many of the residents are very kind. Some of the staff lack some kindness, but I know that's with all facilities. The CNAs need more training. They tell the residents that they ring the bell too much, which is frustrating. Mom often has to wait 20 to 30 minutes after hitting the call button for assistance. For the price we're paying, I feel there should be better quality in services and access to services for the patients. Communication with the family is not great. They're going through some staff shortages. I can tell you that when a resident falls, the family isn't always contacted. The food is ok, quality is pretty good but variety not as much. They do housekeeping weekly and it's not very thorough. Common areas are very clean, but cleaning of the rooms could be much better. The only thing they actually provide is meals. Everything else is up to the family, as far as personal care necessities and basic things. For convenience and proximity only, I would recommend them.

Memory Care in Cities Near Fernandina Beach

Step 2: Identify the best memory care options in Fernandina Beach, Florida for your needs

To help you narrow down your options and choose the best memory care facility near you, some factors to consider include:

  • Memory care ratings and reviews. Our community reviews are submitted by people who have direct experience with the community. As you find memory care communities that interest you, read through the reviews: Do people have positive things to say about the community and their loved one’s experience there?
  • State licensing and regulations. Memory care communities are regulated by the state. Many states make information about community licensing, inspections, and violations available to the public. Is the community accredited? How long has it held this designation? Has the facility passed an inspection recently?
  • Specialized design. Does the community have wayfinding features, like signage and clearly marked doorways? If your loved one likes the outdoors, does the community have a healing garden or secure outdoor space?
  • Staff trained in dementia care. What specialized training do employees have? What’s the staff-to-resident ratio? Is the community staffed 24/7?
  • Memory care facility features and amenities. Does the community fit your loved one’s interests? For example, if they’re religious, is there an on-site chapel? If they value pampering and self-care, is there a beauty salon or barbershop?
  • Memory care activities. While cognitive therapies – like pet therapy and music therapy – can’t cure dementia, they can help stave off its progression and keep seniors alert and entertained. Consider asking communities if you can view a memory care activities calendar to see if there are singalongs, game nights, and supervised outings to keep your loved one socially involved.

Step 3: Compare the costs of memory care near Fernandina Beach, Florida
