The Beacon sets itself apart from other assisted-living facilities because of its ability to give residents the opportunity to age in place.
It can do more than standard care because of the two additional licenses it has (ECC and LNS).
“Residents can live here through end of life,” said Christine Glaze, the assistant director of resident services at The Beacon. “We have the ability to call in hospice or physical therapy if needed.”
The availability of memory care on site also makes a difference. Residents that have dementia issues can transition to memory care rather than be in a position where he or she must move into another facility.
Memory Care 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 can 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 located right off Highway 98 in Gulf Breeze and has a capacity of 120 residents. Ten nurses are on staff to provide the best possible care 24 hours a day.
The Beacon offers spacious studio and one-bedroom apartments with kitchenettes, private baths and courtyard views. 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.
The Beacon also offers restaurant-style dining three times a day, and a wellness team is available to residents in which the staff works with residents, the family and medical professionals to develop customized- care programs.
The staff takes pride in serving happiness and the facility’s chef demands that all meals be as tasty to the eyes as to the palate. The Beacon believes its superior dining experience elevates the morale of the patrons and staff in a way that traditional dining can’t.
A day-stay and guest stay program are also 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 of his or her own personal needs for a few hours or just to get a well-deserved vacation.
The Beacon staff is all about providing peace of mind to families knowing their loved ones will be taken care of and the staff will treat them as if they were their own family members. We work together as a team to promote, respect, dignity and independence for all residents.
The goal is to be great in every aspect of assisted living and memory care.
