Memory Care with Spirit
At The Fountains of Hope, we provide compassionate memory support following the nationally recognized model of the Best Friends™ Approach to Alzheimer’s. While every individual living with Alzheimer’s or related dementia experiences memory loss differently, our experience has shown us that the most important element to effective Memory Care is a strong relationship built on trust. We get to know each resident’s life story, particular talents, personal values, and interests in order to create a personalized care plan that meets their specific needs and supports them in feeling respected and valued.
Our Memory Care neighborhoods are warm, homey, and easy to navigate, with spacious studios and inviting community areas. Family-style dining encourages social interaction and a healthy appetite, while our secured outdoor courtyard and walking paths open the door to exercise and wonder of nature. Specialized activities and a caring trained staff encourage our Memory Care residents to experience a sense of accomplishment and connection, and to find purpose and joy in every moment.
Short-Term Respite Stays
A short-term Respite stay at The Fountains of Hope is a wonderful solution when a full-time caregiver needs time away to refresh and renew, leave town for a business trip, or manage personal affairs. A short-term stay provides comprehensive support when your loved one requires a well-appointed space to recover from an injury or illness. A resident who stays with us part time has complete access to all services and amenities, including all-day dining, daily fitness classes, transportation services, and our wellness programming. A brief stay offers a fantastic sneak peek into the full-time experience of exceptional senior living in Sarasota, Florida.
