Traditional Long-Term Care
River Garden serves people with ongoing care needs in a gracious residential setting. Each resident is offered a continuum of choices; from the privacy of one’s own room to full public spaces encouraging the easy mingling of residents, families and visitors. The out-of-doors is easily visible and accessible. This environment supports sophisticated clinical services, but is characterized by its residential nature.
Quality of life is our priority. The care team not only focuses on medical care but on levels of participation, as well as the cultural and traditional values of our residents. We regularly critique the effectiveness and quality of activities offered in order to develop and facilitate programs based on the cognitive and physical level of residents. Recognizing the importance of treating the whole person, that physical, emotional, mental and spiritual needs must be met, we also have a full time chaplain available to all residents, family members and staff.
Memory Care is a dementia-specific unit that specializes in Alzheimer’s and other dementias. This specialized Unit provides a compassionate, supportive and therapeutic environment for residents diagnosed with dementia. Residents participate in a variety of activities and social programs to meet their special needs. The design of Memory Care allows for maximum freedom for residents, including access to an outdoor terrace, in a gracious, secure setting.
Memory Care provides:
• Secure unit
• State-of-the-art Wander Protection system
• Specialized programming
The need for long-term care may develop over a period of months or years, but a little planning and preparation can help ease the process of admission. River Garden accepts applications for admission up to 18 months in advance, enabling us to be there for you when you need us.
River Garden is certified as a Medicare/Medicaid provider and is recognized as a skilled nursing facility by the state of Florida.
