Is it mild cognitive impairment or just normal aging? Learn more at Amavida
November 12, 2019 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Amavida, the Fort Myers active adult community developed by Quadrum Senior Living, is inviting the public to an educational presentation on Tuesday, Nov. 12 from 2 to 4 p.m. to learn more about mild cognitive impairment – the stage between the expected cognitive decline of normal aging and the more serious decline of dementia.
Special guest speaker Pam Polowski, a nationally distinguished dementia practitioner and certified Level I and Level II Alzheimer’s Trainer from Trilogy Home Healthcare, will identify the symptoms of MCI and explain its causes, risk factors and associated complications.
“Don’t ignore the symptoms,” said Polowski. “It’s important to educate yourself about what to look for and what to expect once a diagnosis is made.”
Led by Director of Assisted Living and Memory Care Catherine Cruikshank-Eberle, Amavida’s new MCI program is a fresh and innovative approach developed especially for residents who do not need full memory care services.
“Our MCI program within assisted living supports our residents’ individualized and unique needs by focusing on their interests and strengths,” said Cruikshank-Eberle. “Using innovative concepts like our brain fitness program helps fuel enhanced cognition, lifelong learning, expanded language and increased communication.”
Seating is limited and RSVP is required. Please call 239-237-0501 by Monday, Nov. 11 to reserve your spot.
Amavida offers 300 independent living cottages and apartments, 125 assisted living apartments and 35 memory care apartments.
Through Dec. 31, new independent living residents can receive up to $600 per month off selected apartments that range from 616 to 1,054 square feet and offer up to two bedrooms and two baths.
A selection of assisted living and memory care apartments are also available to new residents, with a savings of $700 per month through the end of the year. Assisted living residences range from a 437-square-foot studio to a 790-square-foot apartment with a den. A 402-square-foot studio floor plan is offered for memory care residents.
Amavida – whose name translates to “a love of life” – boasts a resort vibe, rather than a traditional “retirement community” feel. At Amavida, people of all ages can remain as active as they want to, and the community provides plenty of ways for them to stay fit, connect with their neighbors, continue learning and enjoying life in Southwest Florida.
The various living choices provide residents with options should their health care needs change. A nursing team is also available to Amavida residents 24 hours a day, seven days a week, as well as an on-site pharmacy and medical clinic with robust services. In addition, Amavida’s idyllic location provides residents with close proximity to numerous medical facilities.
Amavida is conveniently located at 7650 Gladiolus Drive in Fort Myers, between Summerlin Road and U.S. 41. Community tours are available by walk-in or appointment. The Amavida Welcome Center is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Visit www.amavidaliving.com or call 239-237-0501 for additional community information.
