What is Assisted Living?
Assisted living is designed for residents who require the comfort of 24-hour care. Assisted living care plans are tailored to every resident, meaning residents maintain the highest level of independence while maintaining their well-being.
We take care of all maintenance, housekeeping, and meal preparation. Assistance for other tasks like transportation, medication management, bathing, and dressing is available to assisted living residents as well. By providing a combination of housing, health care, and personal care to assisted living residents, we aim to create a well-rounded lifestyle.
Assisted Living vs. Independent Living vs. Memory Care
Independent living is designed for seniors who don’t require as much care. Housing, meals, housekeeping, and maintenance is included in independent living, meaning independent living is for residents who are still able to complete tasks like bathing and dressing on their own. Independent living is an option for those who want more convenience and less stress, but are still largely able to care for themselves.
Assisted living is for residents who need more help handling everyday tasks. In addition to housing, meals, housekeeping, and maintenance, assisted living includes help with bathing, dressing, and medication management. In our assisted living residences, staff are on-site 24-7 to assist whenever a resident is in need.
Memory care offers 24-7 care, similar to assisted living. However, memory care is tailored to residents with Alzheimer’s, dementia, and other memory problems, while assisted living is not. The main differences between memory care and assisted living can be seen in the overall security and structure of memory care. Memory care facilities are more secure and have programs and activities designed to enhance memory and cognitive ability.
How Assisted Living Works
Assisted living care is customized for each resident and the level of care they require. Our highly-trained staff is ready to assist when necessary and our assisted living residences are staffed 24 hours a day.
Help is available when needed, but residents are also able to maintain the highest level of independence possible. We offer a variety of programs to ensure our residents get the social interaction, exercise, and enrichment they need.
Assisted Living Services & Amenities
We take care of the day-to-day tasks, but we offer many more services and amenities to create a well-rounded lifestyle for our residents. In addition to housekeeping and meal preparation, we also offer laundry, transportation, and salon services. Beyond our fully-trained staff, we offer amenities like physical therapy as well as exercise classes to keep residents healthy. Social connections are also available through clubs, events, and holiday celebrations.
