Frequently Asked Questions

What is Independent Living?
Independent living is designed for senior adults who are able to live an independent lifestyle with minimal to no personal care assistance on tasks such as bathing, brushing teeth, medication administration, or getting dressed.

Daily services that are often offered to those in independent living include dining, home or apartment maintenance, transportation, housekeeping and security. Many communities also offer convenient on-site amenities such as swimming pools, fitness centers, beauty and barber shops, libraries, bars, billiard rooms, and much more. Independent living communities offer varying levels of programing that encourage residents to interact and meet other residents with similar interests.

What is Assisted Living?
Assisted Living is designed for senior adults who value their independent lifestyle but may need some additional assistance in daily activities such as dressing, bathing, or medication management.

Assisted Living communities are designed to nurture the independent spirit while assisting with the physical activities of daily living. Services provided include bathing, grooming, dressing, and a wellness program. Some states also allow Assisted Living to offer medication assistance and/or wellness reminders.

What is a Memory Care community?
Memory Care communities are specially designed to serve residents with Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia. Services and amenities related to this type of care may also be offered in assisted living or skilled nursing care settings. Those services and amenities designed specifically for memory care may include self-contained neighborhoods, secured units or buildings, comprehensive supervision and security, medication assistance, rehabilitation programs, and daily activities designed to keep minds active.

When should you consider Rehabilitation & Extended Stay?
Each person’s journey is unique, as is every family. However, a good indicator to consider Skilled Nursing as an option is a recent decline in health or a recent hospitalization. If these indicators are present, discuss options with your physician. A personalized assessment will be completed by the Skilled Nursing/post-acute care facility of your choice prior to admission to ensure all needs can be met. Please feel free to call us today to schedule your personalized assessment.
