Scott Colton, practicing psychiatric nurse, is in charge of performing memory testing for VIP residents. These are basic, standardized tests for anxiety, depression and memory, and can be done periodically to track changes. A variety of memory exercises are available, including onsite computer-driven games and programs, which add a fun factor to improving short and long term memory. Many are highly therapeutic to improving residents’ memories. VIP also works closely with the North Broward Memory Disorder Center where more involved memory testing is available.
We are here to help you navigate through the system by providing assistance with billing and documentation.
VIP can educate regarding Medicaid and veterans benefits.
VIP differs from most Assisted Living or Memory Care facilities in that we prefer to bring physicians to our residents, instead of them leaving the facility. Doing so greatly reduces stress on residents and their families, and allows us to be there during their appointment to explain what’s transpired with the patient, and answer any questions the doctors may have. Physicians including medical, dental, podiatric, psychiatry, and ophthalmologic care have come to VIP to provide their services.
No Deposits or Securities, One All Inclusive Price
The stress of moving a loved into an Assisted Living Facility is often exacerbated by the demands of an unreasonably high deposit and security fees. VIP Memory Care Center differs in that we don’t require this upfront, opting instead to charge a small service fee and pro-rated month’s rent to move in.
There are no monthly invoices since rent remains the same each month. VIP’s basic fee includes:
- Room and board
- All meals and snacks
- Laundry services
- Inside activities
- All standard sundries
- Incontinence Program
- Assistance with activities of daily living
- Supervision of self-administered medication
- Assistance with securing personal care and health care
