About The Harbor Alzheimer’s and Memory Care Assisted Living Center

The Harbor is the result of years of planning and development with notable experts and researchers in the field of memory loss. As a result of those efforts, the overall theme, design, colors, furniture, and common areas all reflect a 1950’s theme to remind residents of happier times. The apartment suites are configured especially for those with memory loss. Also, a series of local nostalgic pictures, when available, are located throughout the facility.

The colors are bright and cheery with large six foot windows in each apartment. Flooring types, textures and furnishings were chosen based on successful trends in memory care treatment. A large area called the Town Center is the hub of activities and socialization. This includes the Town Diner and Town Clinic.

The state of the art technology will play a huge part in the delivery of service, care and life enrichment. Bryan Cook, senior vice president of Legacy Senior Services, which manages Legacy Village of Jacksonville, said, “We are very excited about the resident-focused, life enrichment programs and the technology that will help our residents with memory stimulation and behavior management.” One specific technology is SimpleC, an electronic memory stimulation system. Trained staff works with families to select stories, pictures, interests, and recorded trusted voices that assist in memory stimulation and provide timely reminders for activities of daily living. This technology will be led by trained staff, delivered through an intuitive touch screen monitor or tablet in each apartment and is the result of years of study and development with top-tiered research institutions, including the Copper Ridge Institute, Emory University, Georgia Tech and Georgia State.
