Assisted Living
Now there's some place like home.

In a quilt, colorful squares of fabric weave into a spectacle of texture and pattern, each as unique and colorful as the caring hands that made them.

Like a quilt, no two homes look exactly the same. Home evokes feelings of comfort... family...familiarity. Walk into our home. It may not be your home, but it will feel just as inviting.

When the demands of living in your home require more than you're willing and able to give on your own, you'll find a welcome home with us. As well as all the help you need. But you may not notice it right away, because that's part of our charm.

We believe in exercising just the right touch. One more felt than seen. Come see for yourself. You'll be surprised at how comfortable you feel.

Who's there to help?
Behind the scenes, a full-time licensed nurse provides oversight. Plus doubles as a health services coordinator concerning every resident's planning and care needs. The nurse makes sure that each person receives the right level of support with minimal intrusion -- both from our staff and from outside resources like home health or rehabilitation. Residents can receive assistance around the clock.

This low-key, yet coordinated, approach to health care lets you maintain your chosen level of independence for as long as possible.

What about dining?
Of all meals, breakfast most reflects your lifestyle. We serve an informal, stroll-in breakfast, with meals cooked to order daily.

Lunch and supper are served restaurant-style. Our menus reflect your preferences and favorite recipes. We accommodate special menu requests and prescribed dietary requirements.* Our dining rooms contain intimate tables of four or more set with china service and table linens. Even a private dining room when you'd like to host a dinner or a family gathering.

Who keeps house?
Keeping house may not be exciting, but we do come through daily to tidy things up. And we have a regular schedule of routine deep cleaning in each room. We try to live up to your own high standards, including the laundry. We know how folks are about their clothes, and we'll treat your wardrobe with extra care.

What am I going to do every day?
How you fill your day is up to you. We realize you've seen enough to make your own choices.
On your own -

The comfort of a good book, downloading pictures of the grandkids, walking your dog through the garden (yes, pets are just as welcome as you are). You name it; you can do it.
All together now -

Some folks love to join right in. We strike a balance between planned programs (movies, bridge tournaments, live entertainment) and spontaneous events (current event discussions, afternoon tea on the porch, a power walk around the grounds). We encourage togetherness, but never force it. You can still actively participate in your own community. Even host functions here with us.

What should I do next?
Helping individuals and families find a warm welcome is vital. We realize the importance of security and peace of mind about the decision - for all concerned. Sit down with us to discuss your options.

Let us help enhance your independence and your ability to meet life head-on by giving you just the right support at the right time. And that should make anyone feel right at home.

Frequently Asked Questions.
Answers to the most commonly asked questions about assisted living.

What is assisted living?
An assisted living residence provides a combination of housing, supportive services and health care designed to meet the needs - both scheduled and unscheduled - of those seniors who need help with activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing, meal preparation and medication monitoring (Assisted Living Federation of America). Most states define a resident appropriate for assisted living care as one who can negotiate a pathway to safety in case of emergencies with no or little assistance another person. These are broad definitions and each state regulates this level of care a bit differently.

When is assisted living a better option than independent living?
Generally speaking, when an individual living at home can no longer be assisted with "scheduled care" (either by family or home health agencies) - and requires more "care on demand", assisted living becomes an attractive option.

What do you mean by "care on demand"?
This would include assistance that is available 24-hours a day - whenever the resident needs it. Protective oversight, on-going medication management, nutritional support and personal assistance with dressing and bathing are all examples of care on demand.

If my care needs change would I have to move?
Many residents live their remaining years quite comfortably in the assisted living setting. Since supportive care is provided (assistance with bathing, medication monitoring, meal preparation), living in an assisted living setting can significantly reduce the risk of serious health setbacks that might necessitate a higher level of care. In addition, Medicare home health services, rehabilitation and even Hospice services can all be accessed in an assisted living community. Certainly meeting a resident's needs is the number one priority and should a higher level of care be required, skilled nursing (both short and long-term) is a viable next step.

When is skilled nursing a better option than assisted living?
Skilled nursing care is reserved for individuals with often complex medical needs requiring the "skill" of licensed nurses and therapists. Skilled nursing is appropriate for seniors recovering from stroke or surgery that needs intensive, 7-day a week therapies. In addition, if a resident regularly requires the assistance of another to move from bed to chair, or is confined to bed due to their condition, they are generally more appropriate for the skilled nursing setting.
