Senior Care Options
Today’s options for Senior Care and support are very different than in the past. In the past you had one option of a “nursing home” type environment where families often felt they had no choices and little hope for a rewarding and meaningful future for their loved one.
Today we have so many different types of support and care that promotes independence and meaning for everyone involved.
At Home Caregivers: At times, the caregiving of our loved one may need many people to be successful. Caregivers can be hired as private caregivers or through an agency. Private caregivers are often less expensive while agencies will do strict background checks and screenings which also increases the cost of the service and the cost of that is reflected in the fees. Both are great options for families who are wanting to keep their loved ones at home. What if you need more than a few hours of care? You might consider respite care.
Respite Care: Whether you’re going on a vacation or business trip, have an unplanned emergency, or simply need a break from the demands of caregiving, you can leave your loved one in our capable hands for a few days, a few weeks, or a few months while you take care of other things. He or she will have the chance to spend time with other seniors and participate in all the social activities we offer—plus get hands-on assistance with health or memory issues if necessary—and you’ll have a chance to recharge.
Independence with Support
Assisted Living: Our approach to assisted living is one that emphasizes flexibility, independence, and a rich quality of life. Whether a resident simply needs light assistance with day-to-day activities or more hands-on care for health management, we can provide the personalized support necessary to live a full and active life. If you haven’t looked into assisted living recently, you may be surprised at the level of care we can provide—and how closely we can tailor it to each senior’s unique needs
When you need more support
Memory care: Caring for seniors with memory loss is one of the things we do best, and we hire and train only the most compassionate and dedicated staff for this very purpose. We see our memory care residents as unique individuals with inherent dignity, and we take great pride in creating a home for them that honors that. Our programming for memory care – including our Music and Memory program – is designed to help residents improve their cognitive function while they build friendships and engage in things they enjoy.
Skilled Nursing Care: These facilities, many know them as Nursing Homes, Rehab or Long-term care facilities, provide 24 hour a day care by licensed nursing care professionals. This can be provided for a short period of time or for an extended period of time. These facilities may also offer therapies such as PT, OT or SLP and can help people recover from strokes, wounds, broken bones and many other conditions after release from the hospital. Typically, an Assisted Living or Memory Care program will be needed when your loved one is released from Skilled Nursing Care.
