How Answers Relate to Care Levels
There are three different senior living options that you can consider according to your personal needs. For older adults who are relatively independent but are looking for socialization opportunities to keep them fit and active, our independent living option is the ideal program to seek. We take care of tedious day-to-day tasks like housekeeping, laundry, cooking, and home maintenance while you enjoy a plethora of community events and activities.
For individuals who require more than just assistance with daily living activities, we recommend our assisted living program. This program provides assistance for all your basic medical needs including medication administration, continence management, insulin and IV drip administration, wound care, and health and wellness checks.
