Arbor Terrace Ortega, Jacksonville FL
It’s no secret Florida is an exceptional place to live. With bright, sunny skies, year-round warm temperatures and countless opportunities for recreation, there is no shortage of fun to be had in the Sunshine State.
Jacksonville is no exception, located in beautiful northern Florida. Arbor Terrace Ortega calls the city home, offering easy access to everything the area offers. Their outstanding memory care programs make them a popular destination for families near and far, with dozens of unique amenities, state-of-the-art living areas, and compassionate, highly-trained staff.
Why do residents love Arbor Terrace Ortega? Everyone has their reasons, but for many, it starts with their incredible maintenance-free lifestyle. Residents don’t have to lift a finger during their stay to clean or prepare meals, instead enjoying all-inclusive living while they relax. Along with room and board, monthly rent covers housekeeping, linen services, daily bed-making, and trash removal so residents can spend less time cleaning and more time living life by their own design.
Meal preparation is included in the maintenance-free lifestyle of Arbor Terrace Ortega, thanks to the community’s incredible Dining with Dignity program. Preparing meals can be especially challenging for people with memory loss, even presenting dangers like fires, cuts, and foodborne illnesses. Arbor Terrace eliminates those risks with their meal plan, providing residents with three well-rounded meals per day.
Professional chefs prepare meals in-house using ingredients that are easy to chew and swallow. Choking and aspiration pose legitimate risks to those with trouble swallowing, and the staff reduces these risks by carefully crafting their meals with residents in mind. If a person has allergies or other special dietary needs, the staff are happy to assist by preparing meals that accommodate each resident’s individual needs.
Unlike many memory care communities, Arbor Terrace Ortega is unique for its sole dedication to memory loss and Alzheimer’s disease. It’s common for senior living residences to offer memory care alongside assisted or independent living, but that isn’t the case at Arbor Terrace Ortega.

The memory care programs services and amenities include:
On-campus dementia and Alzheimer's support group
Group and one-on-one counseling for residents' families
Monitored entries and exits
Individualized care plans, specially crafted for each resident based on their care needs
Medication supervision, courtesy of a licensed nurse

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q: I see Arbor Terrace Ortega offers memory care, but not assisted living. What is the difference between memory care and assisted living?
Assisted living is an umbrella term for a type of non-medical senior care. While memory care falls under that umbrella, it offers a higher degree of assistance specially crafted for people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias. In many cases, assisted living communities provided memory care in a dedicated neighborhood, separate from their other residents. However, Arbor Terrace Ortega is a unique senior living community wholly committed to dementia and memory care.
At Arbor Terrace Ortega, residents receive specialized care tailored for them. The community offers a dementia-friendly layout, designed to reduce falls and minimize confusion. Monitored exits and entries eliminate risks of wandering, while daily programming helps residents stay active and feel stimulated.
