St. Augustine Plantation: Assisted Living & Memory Care with Southern Charm Southern charm shines in older cities like Florida’s capital Tallahassee. Even its name means “old town” is Muskogean, the language of the Creek Indians. St. Augustine Plantation is the proud forefather of Tallahassee’s assisted living community. If you’re looking memory care or assisted living for yourself or a loved one, you would be interested to know we are among the oldest continuously operating assistive living communities here. We first opened our doors in 1998, around the time assisted living was first entering the eldercare conversation. Since then, we’ve expanded our services and skills while keeping our own community small enough remain an intimate one where caregiving for our elders remains the central purpose and focus. Georgian Architecture and Southern Cooking are Standouts at St. Augustine Plantation Ask our residents and their families about what comes to mind when someone mentions St. Augustine Plantation and the answer is either our lovely portico or superb Southern-style cooking. These help us make St. Augustine Plantation a real home. Our entryway is a long and wide portico behind white columns in that classic Georgian/Southern look. Add in more than a dozen comfortable rocking chairs and you can easily picture the relaxed atmosphere where residents find good company in each other in a safe environment. Food is important to Southerners and we take particular pride in our cuisine. Our culinary staff uses fresh ingredients to create daily menus with a signature dish for each meal. “Anytime Selections” are also available each day. We handle special dietary needs (diabetes, low salt, kosher) and can create special menus for other medical and health concerns. Snacks, beverages, and fresh fruit are available throughout the day. Our residents decide when they want to eat within a broad timeframe. We have two seatings for each meal that stretch out over 1.5 hours each. This way, late risers can still get breakfast while early birds don’t have to wait for them. We have two dining rooms, one for our assisted living residents and a separate on for those who reside in our memory care section. Friends and family are always welcome to join us for meals—just be sure to let us know company’s coming. Activities for the Body and Soul Every Day People who live here enjoy a lot of social activities. There’s usually a card game going on somewhere, and billiards is almost as popular as Bingo. An onsite beauty salon and barbershop are kept busy because we know that looking good makes people feel good! St. Augustine Plantation is located in a beautiful part of our lovely city filled with lush plant life. So it’s no surprise that many residents are avid gardeners and enjoy our walking trails and gazebos and bird watching; we have several birdfeeders scattered around the property. Our memory care residents are particularly drawn to the outdoor scenery, and we encourage them to move about our secured outdoor area. In addition to exercise programs developed for seniors, we have a weekly Zumba class that gets quite a bit of attention. Another popular service is hand massage provided by a physical therapist each week. We also host a men’s club and discussion group. There are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the city. Every Monday and Friday, our accessible bus takes residents out for downtown shopping, lunches, or visits to parks. We have season tickets to Florida State University basketball games. Personalized Care Planning for Assisted Living and Memory CarePeople who require assisted living services or memory care have unique needs, so we assess each resident to determine his or her unique needs. Every resident receives assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) they need for walking, bathing, dressing, eating, transferring, and/or toileting. We have nursing staff onsite alongside our caregivers, who are fully trained and licensed. We embrace the In the Moment® approach to memory care which features physical and spiritual engagement, artistic expression, community, education, and lifestyle-leisure. While our assisted living residents enjoy a wide range of scheduled activities, our memory care residents live more for the moment, which is a more compassionate and meaningful way to care for those with Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and other forms of dementia. Memory care residents live in comfortable studio apartments that include many of their own treasured possessions. Assisted living residents can select a studio or one-bedroom apartment, often decorated with their own belongings and furniture as well. Contact us for an appointment and tour.
