Azalea Gardens Retirement Living in Tallahassee, FL
A custom Assisted Living, Alzheimer’s & Memory Care Facility in Tallahassee, FL for your loved one!
Azalea Gardens is not just a memory care facility, we are a memory care community. It is a warm, welcoming senior community for those in need of assisted living, transitional assisted living, or memory care. Unlike a traditional nursing home, which is equipped to handle persons with assisted living needs but lacks the staff training and infrastructure needed to nurture those with memory challenges, Azalea Gardens takes a holistic approach to provide the very best care for your loved one. Azalea Gardens combines Person-Centered Care with an extensive Memory Care Life Enrichment Program that encompasses the six Sunshine Pillars of Wellness through physical, social, emotional, cognitive, sensory, and spiritual nurturing to enable your loved one to live life to the fullest in a safe and secure environment. Our memory care facility in Tallahassee offers Transitional Assisted Living for persons starting to experience memory challenges, Memory Care for Alzheimer’s and dementia, respite, and hospice care with a professional staff available day and night. Our mission is to provide a warm and secure environment that encourages residents to feel more independent, safe, and engaged. Residents can choose from multiple floor plans, including private and semi-private suites, as well as companion suites. Azalea Gardens memory care facility residents receive Person-Centered Care with care options ranging from dressing assistance and personal hygiene, to medication and continence management and more in an encouraging and nurturing environment. Our team seeks to foster independence over dependence in a private setting to provide the personalized attention your loved one needs.

Considering memory care for my mom was very difficult, but from the moment we walked in the door for our official “tour", we saw skilled, caring professionals dealing with all levels of care in a beautiful setting. My mom has settled in and is enjoying the wide array of activities and outings. We are so happy we found Azalea Gardens.
Azalea Gardens goes above and beyond in the care for their residents. The staff is well trained in area of Alzheimer’s. The food is delicious and looks amazing. Management is excellent. Ms. Predis makes sure all questions are answered honestly and correctly. I have and continue to recommend Azalea Gardens to friends and family.

Since our quality of food and service must be experienced, we invite you to join us for lunch or dinner.

Our daily menu also incorporates foods from the Rush University Medical Center MIND diet that fosters brain health. Our goal is that the MIND diet, in conjunction with our many Memory Care programs, will help hold off memory issues for as long as possible. Entrees are served on colored plates to stimulate appetite, and a server greets each resident individually with multiple daily menu choices.
