They did a good job keeping the community clean. The staff was very caring towards my mother and were very attentive to her care and needs. They brought her meals when she needed them and checked on her periodically. My mother didn't participate much in the activities, but they did offer them at the community. Definitely a good value for the price. We cannot say enough good things about the care they are offering.

Ponte Vedra Gardens Alzheimer's Special Care Center in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL
5.0

Ponte Vedra Gardens is a wonderful community whose staff are so nice and caring. Mother is being cared for and she is thriving. Since the onset of dementia, she has had her days where she is just not right. They understand and are able to soothe her and she is happy, which makes me happy. The facility is beautiful, reminding me of a top hotel. Their activities engage and entertain Mother so she doesn't get bored or lonesome. She actually has fun and when I visit, she is smiling and happy to see me. I cant stress the cleanliness of the building and the great people who work there taking care of Mother. I will be forever grateful.

Step 2: Identify the best memory care options in Jacksonville, 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 Jacksonville, Florida
