Alzheimer's & Dementia Care

Looking for memory care in North Florida? Advent Christian Village’s skilled nursing facility, Good Samaritan Center, is an excellent option to consider. We provide the highest date standards of care for persons needing memory support.

It’s our belief that quality memory care grants residents opportunities to experience supervised but meaningful independence. Good Samaritan Center’s design and adjoining outdoor courtyards permit members to move about in protected freedom that is both safe and enjoyable.

Our professional, compassionate staff works to provide each of our residents the meaningful life they deserve in a vibrant, caring community.

 

Memory CareRestorative & Rehabilitative Services

The goal of our senior care services is to encourage residents to live a full life. If a loved one requires intensive rehabilitative services following a stroke or surgery, Advent Christian Village provides the right amount of care to return him or her to their highest level of function.

Admissions Standards

To be admitted to Good Samaritan Center, a person must be at least 60 years of age and meet the state of Florida nursing home admission guidelines as ordered by a physician.

Artists of Dementia Care

The state of Florida requires that Advent Christian Village employees working directly with members at Good Samaritan Center obtain a certain number of hours of training relating to Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. Advent Christian Village gladly fulfills that obligation and also invests time in additional training.

A number of years ago, Good Samaritan Center developed an intensive training program on dementia and Alzheimer’s care that all staff members are required to complete. This training is based on the book “The Art of Dementia Care.” Once an employee goes through that program and graduates, they become what we call an Artist of Dementia Care.

Our training program changes how employees think about people in need of Alzheimer’s and dementia care. It also teaches each staff member how to better help the families of those suffering with memory loss.
