Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q: What are the differences between independent living, assisted living, and memory care at the Lakeside at Amelia Island?
Each type of long-term care at the Lakeside falls under one main umbrella: non-medical senior living. However, each type offers services unique to their program in accordance with their residents’ levels of care.
Independent living is generally the first tier of senior care. Many people choose independent living as a preventative measure, for the peace of mind that comes with around-the-clock emergency response. They live their lives as they would normally, with access to community activities, emergency care, and meals as they desire. Staff provides housekeeping and maintenance services so they can spend more time pursuing their passions, like creating art or spending time with friends.
The assisted living community is similar but tailored for people who need help with their activities of daily living. At the Lakeside residents may receive one of four levels of assisted living care, from minimal help with a few activities to full assistance throughout the day. Like independent living residents, assisted living residents are free to live their lives freely, with access to emergency response services when they need it

Monitored entries and exits
On-campus dementia and Alzheimer's support groups
