The Beacon in Gulf Breeze, which is now managed by Superior Residences Living, still has the same caring and loving people working hard to serve the residents.
The Beacon, formerly known as The Blake, has a capacity of 120 residents and 15 nurses are on staff to provide the best possible care to residents 24 hours a day.
Two nurse practitioners make regular visits to save residents a trip to the doctor’s office. Labs and X-rays can also be done on-site in addition to therapy services.
The Beacon also offers restaurant-style dining three times a day and a wellness team is also available to residents in which the staff works with residents, the family and medical professionals to develop customized-care programs.
Spacious apartments with kitchenettes, private baths, courtyard views and personalized security response systems are available to residents as are physical therapy and exercise programs. Other amenities include card rooms, a movie theater and a salon and spa.
A day-stay program is also now offered by The Beacon. The program provides a safe and secure place for a loved one to be if a primary caregiver needs time to take care of his or her own personal needs for a few hours, such as running errands. The costs for the services are only $10 per hour.
The participants in the program will be treated just like the residents and can even participate in exercise classes and other activities while they are staying at The Beacon.
One of the other options offered by The Beacon is memory care, which is a specialized area of assisted living. Patients dealing with Alzheimer’s Disease or another form of dementia receive care beyond what traditional assisted-living facilities are able to provide. The memory care program addresses the needs of the whole person.
Concierge service is available as well for scheduling medical appointments, activities, family visits and for accommodating other needs of the residents.
The Beacon is all about providing peace of mind to families too so that their loved ones will be taken care of and the staff will treat them as if they are their own family members.
