For A Loved One

Where to Start

Being a caregiver for a loved one who needs assistance is no easy task as you balance the need to provide care in a safe environment and your own family, career, health and wellbeing. We understand and want to help you as you begin to learn more about senior living for your very important person. 

Be sure to visit our Resources Page to learn more about financial options and read our blog for helpful tips and articles.

Services

The reality of getting older is that there may come a time when your loved one needs extra assistance. Some of this you may be able to provide, some may be too much for you to handle on your own. Our care staff is there for you at our Supportive Independent, Assisted Living, Memory Care and Skilled Nursing communities. Some offer all-inclusive services, while others assess level of care and pricing reflects how much help your loved one needs now.

How to Pay For Care

When it comes to our loved ones, it's hard to put a value on their care and happiness. However, It is likely that the cost of senior living will play a part in your decision. The first step in determining how to afford senior living is to do a complete audit of your loved one's financial situation. Use our Cost of Living calculator to tally all his or her expenses to gain a true sense of how much is being spent. Time is money, so don't forget to include any time away from work you are taking to go to appointments, for instance. In addition, there are assistance programs, veterans' aid, and resources available to you that may help you as you budget for care. 

Support Groups for Caregivers

Many of our communities offer monthly support groups for caregivers. Our Caregiver Cafés give you an opportunity to share your brightest and not-so-bright moments with other individuals in a similar situation. It's nice to give yourself a break once in a while to gain perspective on all the good you are doing for your loved one.
