    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 

    Memory care is the most specialized type of senior living at Lakeside, tailored for people with dementia and memory loss. The memory care community offers a variety of unique services and amenities, including: 

    • Monitored entries and exits

    • On-campus dementia and Alzheimer's support groups

    • Group and one-on-one counseling for residents' families

    • Individualized care plans, specially crafted for each resident based on their care needs

    • Medication supervision, courtesy of a licensed nurse

    Lakeside suggested mother spend 3 weeks in another rehab facility to meet level of care requirements. Weekly reviews wee upbeat and positive. Completed all paperwork, obtained va move in date and they cashed 5K check. After numerous delays and avoidance by management, we were notified mother was not a fit for Lakeside standards on the 20th day of rehab. Waisted 3 weeks where we could have been looking for another facility. Extremely dissatisfied with the service/noncommittal effort to string along the ultimate refusal. Good news: It only took 2 more weeks to receive our initial 5K deposit back.... Since then, it only took 1 day to find a facility on the island that was willing to help her with the understanding of her needs lessoning restrictions or delays. Feel Lakeside is screening potential residents with little to no maintenance requirements for acceptance due to being a new facility.
