How Do I Know the Right Option?

 

Independent Living

  • Are you looking for relief from the daily tasks like cleaning, mowing, shoveling and repairs and the expense of keeping up a household?
  • Are you looking for a convenient and safe environment to call home?
  • Do you look forward to socialization and community spaces for fun and relaxation?
  • Do you want to spend more time enjoying your family and friends, travelling and maybe, volunteering in the community?
  • Are you independently caring for yourself and not requiring daily home care support?

If the answer is yes to the questions above, then, our Independent Living communities are the best option for you.

Assisted Living

It’s not always easy to tell when you or a loved one needs more help. The following warning signs may indicate that it’s time for a talk about Assisted Living:

  • Do you find the refrigerator is empty or filled with spoiled food? Are you or your loved one losing weight? These may be signs of not eating well because shopping or cooking is difficult.
  • Do you notice frequent bruises? This may be a sign of falling or mobility and balance problems.
  • Does your loved one wear the same clothes over and over again or neglect personal hygiene? This can indicate that doing laundry and bathing is physically challenging.
  • Do you find the house and yard isn’t as clean and tidy as it used to be?
  • Does your loved one forget things, including doctor’s appointments or when to take medication? This may be due to memory loss.
  • Does your loved one seem down? Depression is common in seniors who are isolated and alone.
  • Do you notice strange or inappropriate behavior? For example, dressing inappropriately for the weather. This can be a sign that he or she is experiencing confusion.

Memory Care

Our memory support neighborhoods are uniquely designed to meet the needs of those with Alzheimer’s and dementia related impairments. Airy walkways, activity centers and secured outdoor spaces for safe wandering are a few of the touch-points designed to provide a homelike supportive environment for our residents. Our Enriching Connections and Inspire Wellness for Life programs ensure our staff is trained in the most progressive, research driven practices to enrich the lives of our residents.

The questions below may helpful when determining if a move to a memory support community is a good option:

  • Is the person with dementia becoming unsafe in their current home?
  • Is the health of the person with memory loss or my health as a caregiver at risk?
  • Are the person’s care needs beyond my physical abilities?
  • Am I becoming a stressed, irritable or impatient caregiver?
  • Am I neglecting work responsibilities, my family or myself?
  • Would the structure and social interaction at a memory care community benefit my loved one with dementia?

Long Term Care

Our skilled nursing communities take the worry and stress out of daily living while focusing on the needs of the whole person. The following questions can help determine if a long term care setting is right for you:

  • Did you have an accident that prevents you from living independently?
  • Were you recently hospitalized and need additional care?
  • Does your loved one wear the same clothes over and over again or neglect personal hygiene? This can indicate that doing laundry and bathing is physically challenging.
  • Do you find the house and yard isn’t as clean and tidy as it used to be?
  • Is the primary care giver having trouble meeting the needs of their loved one?
  • Do you have a serious medical condition that requires 24 hour care?
