For Yourself

Considering Senior Living

Making the move to senior living is a major decision; one many don't make until something happens that requires a need for assistance. Preparing for your future or enjoying the benefits of senior living earlier, rather than later, can be a wise decision. Making a decision ahead of a crisis puts you in the driver seat, giving more options and space to make the right decision for you. Your finances, current health, current living arrangement and your lifestyle expectations all play a factor in whether or not senior living makes sense for you. Our blog post about when to make a change may be another helpful resource.

It is important to understand the difference between the types of communities and care levels that are now available. People still associate all senior living with nursing homes and that's just not the case anymore. Options include 55+ communities, Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRCs), Independent Living, Supportive Independent Living, Assisted Living, Memory Care, and Skilled Nursing. 

As you do your research, think about what you are looking for now and what you may want as you age and your situation changes.

The Benefits of Senior Living

Aside from the obvious benefits of having assistance when you need it and living in a safe environment, today's "seniors" want lifestyle choices that allow them to live as independently as possible for as long as possible. They are looking for opportunities for daily social programming, a distinctive dining experience and community amenities that inspire activity, socialization and wellness. 

Enjoy The Company Of Friends

One of the most valuable reasons to join a community is to socialize, meet new people and develop relationships. You can have a meal with friends or order in. You may want to attend one outing but not another. You may want to start a club or join one. Some days you may want to be more social than others, and that's okay. That's the great benefit of living in a community - it's your decision.

A Renewed Sense of "You"

 As we age and live alone or with family members, many find that they lose a sense of self. Gaining more independence, on your terms, is an exciting realization for those who live in one of our communities. We provide transportation to appointments, so if you don't feel like driving or you don't feel comfortable, we are happy to get you to where you need to go. Much of the lifestyle we provide revolves around taking the worry out of your day, leaving you with more time to do what you enjoy most. 

Care Services

The reality of getting older is that there may come a time, whether it's just rehabilitation services or help with dressing or bathing, that you may need some extra assistance. 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 your level of care and pricing reflects how much help you need now.
