The memory support program at Legacy Pointe is in part shaped by the expert guidance of the UCF College of Medicine, College of Nursing, and College of Health Professions and Sciences. Their expertise and forward-thinking guidance, along with Legacy Pointe’s dedication to hospitality, kindness, and dignity for all, are the foundation for our program.

A bedrock principle of our memory care program is ensuring the safety of each resident, always. Our secure memory care area offers its own dedicated dining room and common areas, a beautiful garden area, and round-the-clock care from staff trained in dementia care.

But safety is just the start. Our wonderful residents enjoy a variety of fun activities designed to entertain, encourage social interaction, and stimulate memory and cognitive function. There are art classes, dedicated activity stations, a living room area with TV, and a deep schedule of life enrichment programs that make each day fun for everyone.

Q: What’s the difference between dementia and Alzheimer’s disease?  

A: Dementia refers to the overall loss of cognitive function (thinking, reasoning, and memory, primarily) that is severe enough to affect daily functioning. This group of symptoms is not a disease per se, but may accompany certain diseases or conditions. Dementia is irreversible when caused by disease or certain injuries. It may be partially or fully reversible when caused by drugs, alcohol, depression, or imbalances in certain substances, such as hormones or vitamins. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia. It’s a progressive, degenerative disease of the brain, characterized by loss of function and death of nerve cells in several brain areas. In turn, this can lead to loss of recent memories and new learning, and eventually old memories, too.
