Since we offer two levels of care, Assisted Living and Memory care, we are able to continue serving you if your needs change during your stay with us. Here’s a short description about how we approach Assisted Living and Memory Care:
As a one-story community, our seniors don’t have to worry about taking stairs and elevators. Our building has a unique floor plan, with the common areas and wellness center in a central location that’s surrounded by residents’ apartments.
Our community offers three different apartment styles: two studio floor plans and a one-bedroom style. All apartments come with excellent features such as a kitchenette and private bathroom. In order to personalized the space, residents can select a color to paint the apartment walls.
Because of our building’s floor plan, we have plenty of space for seniors to socialize. Our outdoor areas (patio, walking path, and courtyard) are a great place for residents to relax, meet others at the community or get some exercise. Our spacious dining room provides a beautiful setting to enjoy a fine meal. Our private dining room with kitchen is available for families to use free of charge.
We offer a wide range of activities and outings for residents to enjoy. Activities are based on the interests and feedback of our residents. We provide lunch outings and trips to local events, sporting events and the zoo. Residents gather in the common areas to play pool, cards and watch local sports teams on TV.
At our community, we can offer you or your loved one skilled Assisted Living or Memory Care. With each level of care, our staff is dedicated to supporting and caring for the individual’s needs. Whatever those may be.
Sometimes you may need a little extra support during the day, perhaps for bathing, taking medication or getting dressed. But even with that little bit of support, you still want to maintain a level of independence. That’s where our staff can provide the right balance of care.
Our community provides care that combines independence with assistance and delivers service with compassion, understanding and respect. It’s all tailored to fit you and your needs. We work with each of our residents, understanding their needs first and then crafting together a plan that fits their situation. You only pay for the services that you need.
We also monitor your situation and needs during your stay, and can easily adjust plans at any time. But our goal is to provide you with an individualized experience, and make you feel like you have a partner with us. Our residents enjoy life with the confidence of knowing we are here for them, in whatever way they need.
For our Memory Care, we strive to help maintain residents’ abilities and encourage their current skills. We believe that each individual deserves to be treated with dignity and respect, and you’ll see that our staff strives to do that every day.
We have a state-of-the-art approach to Alzheimer’s and Dementia care, which has been perfected throughout the years. This approach is based on the Clare Bridge concept that utilizes the latest research and innovations to deliver quality Memory Care to seniors. We focus on caring for the individual — working to encourage feelings of belonging, a sense of self, purpose and fulfillment.
From the type of dining we offer to the activities available, we work to engage residents’ mental functions, encourage them to participate in purposeful activities, and involve them in many physical programs. Our goal is to provide opportunities for our seniors to feel a sense of meaning every day.
After undergoing specific training, our staff gently assists residents with daily programs that are designed to maintain a resident’s abilities and encourage the use of their current skills. Programs may include a “Morning Mental Workout” where residents might enjoy brain-stimulating games or discussions, and a Person-Centered Program, which may honor a resident’s past interests and involvements.
