DAILY MEMORY CARE SERVICES
People who live with forms of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease, often require help with routine tasks in order to live confidently, independently and safely. Presidential Place offers a homelike, comfortable environment – and, even more importantly, we offer supportive team members who provide this care with dignity and compassion.
Similar to services found in assisted living, memory care services include instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs). These tasks can include housekeeping, meal preparation, financial management, transportation arrangements or shopping. One of the primary differences between memory care and assisted living, however, is that memory care has a greater focus on activities of daily living (ADLs). These tasks are less complex than IADLs, and they include things like bathing, grooming, toileting or eating.
We lend a hand when residents need us – and we evaluate regularly to make sure that our care is at the appropriate level. This allows residents to feel more confident in our community.

SUPPORT TO HELP YOUR MIND FLOURISH
We hire based on the person, not just the role. Everyone at Presidential Place is an optimistic, caring individual who wants to build a career out of helping people. Our staff will become your new support network, your friends and provide a sense of family every day.
We don’t limit our training to just the staff you expect to interact with you every day. Our entire memory care team is here for you. Industry-leading programs train every staff member — even operations and housekeeping employees — to support the daily needs of residents with memory impairments. By bringing the entire team into the picture, we provide the most supportive network possible, with a community of trained, compassionate staff for you to lean on.
At Presidential Place, you’ll find a mixture of quiet, private spaces and community gathering areas that encourage connection. Find a place to read and reflect or start engaging with other residents or staff. Every person on our memory care team — from bookkeepers to the dining staff — are here to support you. They enjoy having the time to connect with you one-on-one, sharing experiences and interests to build stronger relationships. We want to get to know you as an individual so we can preserve your legacy and help you cultivate moments of joy.
Family provides a strong foundation for success and joy, especially for those living with a memory impairment. We encourage family and friends of our residents to visit often, taking part in the community and interacting with residents. We’re here to support you and your journey as well, rekindling memories with your friend or relative and finding ways to pass their legacy on to new generations.
VIRTUAL DEMENTIA TOURS
It’s hard not to wonder what it’s like for friends and relatives with a memory impairment. Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia consistently create tough situations for those living with the disease, creating communication and connection challenges for those closest to them.
Taking a walk in the shoes of someone with dementia can help you better understand and relate. Our Virtual Dementia Tours make that possible through a sensory stimulation experience designed to mimic the effects of dementia. We encourage caregivers, children, friends and relatives to try the tour and use what they learn to better empathize and communicate with people with memory impairments.

MEMORY CARE FAQs
What is a Memory Care Facility?
Memory care provides similar support to assisted living, but it focuses on services that help enhance the lives of people living with conditions such as dementia and Alzheimer’s. Memory care in Hollywood, FL generally engages people in activities that increase retention, promote cognitive and physical abilities, and deliver support services that ease daily life. Memory care is widely considered a specialization that requires certified professionals and expertise to provide quality care.
Memory care communities are far different than the hospital-like memory care facilities of yesterday. Today, memory care communities are more like home, with the added benefits of being more spacious and secure. They offer amenities and services that are designed to promote a resident's independence and quality of life.
Residents of a memory care community enjoy support from trained team members when they need it, as well as the assurance that help is always nearby. Because residents get to know team members on a personal level, the environment feels friendly and warm.
What's the Difference Between Memory Care, Dementia Care and Alzheimer's Care?
Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia. It’s degenerative, and as it progresses, people require a greater amount of help, possibly with preparing meals or dressing. Some forms of dementia are not degenerative – some may even be reversible – so the amount of care may not need to increase. People with mild forms of dementia may simply need someone to remind them to take medications on time or that they have doctor's appointments on certain days. The terms “memory care,” “Alzheimer's care” and “dementia care” are often used interchangeably, however.
What Types of Memory Care Activities Does a Community Include?
Activities that combine cognitive stimulation, physical movement and a sense of fun are essential to support overall well-being. Memory care activities include:
- Arts and crafts: painting, drawing and jewelry making
- Music therapy: listening to favorite music, singing or dancing
- Exercise classes
- Games: doing puzzles, playing board games and bingo with other residents and team members
- Social activities: ice cream socials, movie nights
- Cognitive improvement: language classes and brain games
- Bus travel to nearby parks and museums

Does Medicare Cover Memory Care Facilities?
While Medicare pays for up to 20 days of rehabilitation or skilled nursing services, Medicare does not cover expenses associated with living in a memory care facility or assisted living facility. Prescriptions may be covered for residents under Medicare Part D. We understand how complicated it can be to understand the role of Medicare in your memory care plans. Please call us at (954) 894-0059 to learn more how Medicare may allay your expenses.
