A Review: The Lynmoore at Lawnwood, Ft Pierce Florida

I sat down with Mona Guinn-Huff, the Director of Marketing for The Lynmoore Assisted Living and Memory Care community. The Lynmoore, located in Fort Pierce, Florida, offers seniors both traditional assisted living and special care for those who are memory impaired living with dementia/Alheimer’s disease. Twenty-five of their eighty-seven beds are within the secure neighborhood for the memory impaired called Cedar Court. The rooms all open directly to the spacious common area which encourages the residents to be more social and active. There is also a secure courtyard with a circular path that allows the seniors to expend excess energy and satisfies the need to wander that is often typical of the memory impaired. Residents can enjoy South Florida living!
Assisted living rates start at $2,200 and up. Care for the memory impaired does have a slightly higher monthly rate. Rates are all inclusive and there are no secondary bills. The Lynmoore’s specialty seems to be in providing support to families and seniors dealing with memory impairment. The Lynmoore offers a complimentary support group for families affected by Alzheimer’s and dementia. The programs offered for seniors to enhance and preserve their memory fall under many different stimulating categories. There is the physical category which includes walks and dancing among other exercises. The reminiscence category helps seniors recall past events through devotions and discussions. Other programs that help seniors’ minds stay sharp and their spirits up are intellectual, sensory, social, and spiritual.
Chef Jones prepares meals for the residents. Meals are served three times a day, with lunch being the largest meal of the day. Snacks are also provided between meals. Dietary requirements are taken into account and there is a secondary menu available. Residents may also choose to expand their culinary options by joining the culinary or bake club.
Overall, the Lynmoore is a homey senior retirement community with close proximity to the hospital and specialty care doctors the best that St. Lucie county can offer. What sets this assisted living community apart is the emphasis on memory care, making it a good fit for memory impaired seniors or those requiring a higher level of assistance. The Lynmoore is worth a tour!
