ASSISTED LIVING

Assisted living offers a helping hand when you need it. 

 

An array of discreet services and support are always close at hand with our 24-hour Assisted Living Services.  Individual care coordination and health maintenance are managed by our Director of Care.  As well, our professionally trained Registered Resident Care Aides are available to provide personal assistance with activities of daily living and to help maintain the quality of life you deserve.

 

A service plan can be tailored to meet your individual requirements or preferences.  More comprehensive assistance is also available to support more demanding health needs.  You can add or remove services as you choose, and you only pay for the services you request.

To ensure we meet all of your assisted living needs, we offer our own unique state-of-the-art computerized resident evaluation program Careware™.  This powerful software tool allows us to accurately store, monitor and evaluate personal care services.  In addition, our Director of Care will visit with you or your loved one to personally discuss health-related issues and to continue to monitor the resident's on-going progress.
