The Beacon of Gulf Breeze is a great option for anyone looking for a quality assisted-living facility to call home.
Located right off Highway 98, The Beacon has a capacity 120 residents and 10 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.
The Beacon is under the direction of Deidre Reis, who was named the executive director in the spring.
“The residents that live here are my top priority and my approach here is to be part of the team, leading by example and not asking anyone to do something I wouldn’t do,” Reis said.
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.
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 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.
“I feel like we have the capabilities to be great in every aspect of assisted living and memory care and that is what we are going to aspire to be,” Reis said.
