At Almost Home we care for those with Memory Loss and Dementia

Almost Home licensed assisted living facilities, are located in Jacksonville and Atlantic Beach. We specialize in care of Alzheimer’s residents and those with other memory impairment and similar dementias.

We provide a peaceful and supportive home for individuals needing help with personal care. The Programs of Care here can make a big difference — for both family caregivers and the individual needing such care. A positive environment can improve your loved one’s outlook behavior and how much enjoyment they get daily. Many families are delighted because their relationships are enhanced from the extra help and guidance they receive.

At Almost Home we care for those with Alzheimer’s and Memory Loss in a home-like, Secured Environment

The foundation of our program is Safety First. We also embody a powerful philosophy known as Anam Cara, a beautiful understanding of love and friendship in the Celtic tradition. A basis for Anam Cara is the spiritual belief of souls connecting and bonding. When you establish such a bond with another person and become open and trusting with them, your souls flow together. When such a bond is nurtured, you have found your Anam Cara, or soul friend. Therefore, we use the Best Friends Approach in our Program of Care.

When it comes to care giving, however, one size does not fit all. Our care program is tailored to meet the specialized needs of all who are afflicted with a dementia including Alzheimer’s, Lewy Body, Parkinson’s and Frontal-temporal dementias.

We understand the varying needs that result from a specific disease and how to make life more meaningful and pleasant. Such an approach increases self worth and creates a true failure-free, less threatening world for those with memory loss. We use gentle strategies such as re-direction, coaching, cueing and task breakdown to help residents feel good about themselves and their accomplishments.

Almost Home has developed its own unique programs to meet resident needs. Our approach to resident-centered care helps create satisfying days and meaningful lives for residents, and peace of mind for families.

Comfort through Aging in Place

As our residents’ needs change, we customize our services to meet them. This means residents and their families never have to deal with the physical and emotional trauma of a move from one care setting to another, especially difficult for those with a dementia such as Alzheimer’s. Such stability through aging in place also helps build long-term relationships with caregivers.

Life Enrichment

Enriching one’s life is a highly individual activity that begins before a resident comes to live at Almost Home. We start with a thorough history and assessment, asking about accomplishments, occupations and hobbies. If Mom loved quilting, we’ll remember that and will develop activities with this in mind. If Dad was a woodworker, the same is true. In addition, we help residents and families compile a Life Story Book which warms the hearts of everyone who sees it. Residents, caregivers, and families use Life Story Books to reminisce about family vacations, favorite pets and the cherished hallmarks of life.

Activities That Matter

Our residents enjoy socializing in our home and are encouraged to join in 7 – 9 activities throughout the day. Activities may be individualized specific to a resident’s interests or group activities such as reminiscing, exercise class or crafts, which promote interpersonal relationships and help maintain fine and gross motor skills. In all cases, activities promote resident success and help enhance the resident’s self esteem.

Community Partnerships

Our teams work extensively with home health agencies, rehabilitation, occupational and respiratory therapy specialists, and hospice to ensure comprehensive care. We’ll also help arrange transportation for doctor appointments or hospital visits.
