Recently opened Lakeside at Amelia Island.

The Lakeside at Amelia Island, an Arbor Company senior living property, officially opened its doors to seniors May 2019. The Arbor Company has served seniors for 30 years, offering exceptional senior living solutions. The Lakeside at Amelia Island offers a continuum of care that includes independent living, assisted living, and memory care. The Lakeside at Amelia Island blends luxurious Amelia Island living with supportive senior care, making it the perfect addition to the Amelia Island community.

“Amelia Island is a great place for seniors to retire. Yet many seniors continue to struggle with finding enjoyable activities. Our independent living community solves this problem. For seniors who need more help, memory care and assisted living are great options that preserve as much independence as possible,” said Melissa Sloper.

Benefits of Senior Living

Senior living isn’t what it used to be. Arbor and companies like it cater to active, engaged seniors who want retirement to have purpose and meaning. The Lakeside at Amelia Island delivers lush surroundings, well-appointed homes, unique floor plans, and a wide range of activities. Seniors go on outings, attend special events, listen to live music, and can choose from a range of daily classes, activities, and meetups. Quality senior living can:

Improve seniors’ health by helping them stay physically, intellectually, and socially active.
Preserve seniors’ independence by reducing the risk of falls, providing extra support, and helping with everyday needs like transportation.

Support seniors’ relationships with their families by reducing caregiver stress.
Keep seniors safe by ensuring that they have access to nourishing food, and offering help in the event of an emergency.

Help seniors uncover new interests and hobbies that can improve quality of life.
Support lasting friendships by making it easier for seniors to meet and spend time with new people.

Advice for Those Considering Senior Living

Senior living can improve quality of life for seniors of all backgrounds and personalities. It’s not a one-size-fits-all approach. Instead, quality senior living meets seniors where they are, catering to the unique needs of each resident. Seniors tend to live happier and longer lives in senior living communities.

Seniors who choose independent living often do so because they feel overwhelmed by the demands of home ownership, isolated at home, or anxious about the future. Because Arbor can offer a continuum of care, we often work with seniors who want to age in place and remain in familiar settings should they eventually need more help.

Assisted living is a great option for seniors who want to remain independent, but who have chronic health issues or need help with the activities of daily living. Like independent living, assisted living offers myriad activities, and can help seniors remain happy and engaged in spite of any physical limitations.

Memory care supports seniors who suffer from dementia by facilitating dementia-friendly activities in a safe and nurturing environment. It can help alleviate the overwhelming demands of dementia caregiving, while expanding a senior’s options for friendship, entertainment, and community involvement.

Arbor: A Tradition of Quality

The Arbor Company is more than just another senior living community. We’re revolutionizing senior care, setting standards for the entire industry.
