Vintage Care of Palatka
5.0

I think it is an outstanding place for your loved ones. It's friendly, and they truly care about your loved ones. If I had to do it again, I definitely would choose Vintage Care of Palatka for my mother.

Brookdale St. Augustine in Saint Augustine, FL

My mom is no longer there because she fell while there, and broke her femur in the same leg that she'd broken her hip the month before. The reason she isn't there is because the Florida guidelines for memory care require that you be able to stand on your own. Because of the break that happened there on their watch, she couldn't go back. I'm not sure I really think that's fair. I understand the law and they don't have a mechanical lift, so they can't lift you if you can't help. That's basically why she isn't there, but she was only there barely a month. I did also experience, while there, a large theft that they claimed to have investigated. I'm unsure if they did or not, but somebody stole right of my mothers ears, a [price removed] pair of earrings. I would want people to know that, it's not as trusting. You go into Brookdale of St. Augustine and you think it's beautiful, very well appointed, very well decorated and very nice. In fact, I'd say it's plush or posh, but the staff are not quite as dependable as the place gives you the impression. That happened within the first three days she was there, and I got a real sense of uneasiness. I felt she was being cared for. I liked that I requested and they allowed me to put a camera in my mothers room. I could watch it 24/7 if I wanted to, although I didn't. I typically watched during mealtimes and things like that, but I was pleased that they allowed me to do that. The supervisory staff - like the director, [name removed], marketing & sales people and the admissions director, they were very understanding and kind throughout the whole process, and as kind as they can be. They were all very very understanding and compassionate. It was just down to the nitty gritty of the CNAs' who actually worked with my mom, who weren't always the kindest. Overall, it was a good experience. It was a much shorter experience than I'd anticipated because I moved my mother in there with furniture and everything, and she only stayed less than a month, which was very discouraging. I had hope she'd be able to return after a stint in rehab, but she wasn't. She's now in a skilled nursing facility, and I was disappointed with A Place for Mom because they don't work with skilled nursing and I was kind of left on my own to figure out the next steps. I would, however, still recommend A Place for Mom to others.

Silver Creek in Saint Augustine, FL
4.4

The community was very good with activities and had fun events including music and exercise. The community is private pay only. The community has some services that come in and help out as a stylist. The food was great and they will make meals based on your diet. The community was open to feedback and took care of issues very quickly. I would recommend this community to others based on my experience.

Step 2: Identify the best memory care options in Palatka, 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.
