Memory Care in Fernandina Beach, FL
Alzheimer’s and Dementia Care at Osprey Village of Amelia Island
Alzheimer’s and dementia are incredibly challenging diseases that take a toll on everyone involved—the patient, their friends and their family. For the person with dementia, losing the ability to remember important names, events or locations can be crushing. For friends and family, caregiving for their loved one can take such a large amount of energy that it becomes mentally and physically draining. At Osprey Village, we can’t control life’s challenges, but we can help ease the burdens that result from Alzheimer’s and dementia. Our memory care program is designed to slow the progression of the disease as well as help members with Alzheimer’s and dementia to life a happy, comfortable and dignified life.
How Memory Care Works
When compared to non-specialized living options, staying at a dedicated memory care facility can be life-changing for patients with Alzheimer’s and dementia. Residents of our program benefit from memory care facilities that are specially designed by Alzheimer’s and dementia experts to ease maneuverability, maximize safety and reduce stress. This includes a brightly lit environment, spacious and straightforward floorplans and fully-secured facilities so that patients with symptoms of wandering are kept safe.
At Osprey Village, we have a team of dedicated caregivers who are specially trained and certified in Alzheimer’s and dementia care. Our nurturing caregivers provide personalized care based on each member’s needs. Every member has a unique set of needs, which is why we offer a variety of care plans to meet those needs. Some members are in the advanced stages of the disease and require a lot of assistance with daily tasks. Other members don’t need as much day-to-day help but still benefit from the Alzheimer’s specific care we provide. For every member, one of the major benefits of staying at our memory care community is the ability to engage in daily mental stimulation exercises with our caregivers. The exercises we use are based around memory, reasoning and information processing, and they have been shown to slow or delay the onset of dementia symptoms and help keep patients mentally sharp.
Being around knowledgeable caregivers who can provide expert support and companionship is a great way for seniors with Alzheimer’s and dementia to live a more fulfilling life.

Understanding that your loved one may have a form of dementia can be a difficult and trying time. While there is no single test that can diagnose a person, it’s vital to identify and become aware of the symptoms attributed to dementia. There are various cases of dementia and on average, Alzheimer’s accounts for 60 to 80 percent of cases, while Vascular dementia (which occurs after a stroke) is the second most common form.
