Frequently Asked Questions

Navigate Senior Living with Confidence

Finding the right senior living community for you or someone you love takes research. However, we know this process is bound to raise questions, so we’ve provided the answers to some frequently asked questions!

Of course, if you don’t find what you are looking for, we’re always available to provide additional information. We invite you to contact us with questions or if you’re ready to schedule a visit to one of our senior living communities.

What is Assisted Living?

Assisted living communities provide older adults with personalized care in a residential setting. Designed for those who need support and assistance with daily tasks, assisted living services typically include assistance with daily tasks such as dressing, grooming, and medication management. Additional services can include housekeeping, dining and meals, transportation, and life enrichment programs.

For individuals who value their independence but can benefit from help with personal care, dressing, and taking medications – assisted living can provide an ideal option.

What is Memory Care?

Memory care communities provide a safe and structured environment for those living with memory-related conditions, such as Alzheimer’s and dementia. Team members within these communities have specialized knowledge and training to help residents manage the challenges and symptoms associated with cognitive decline. The atmosphere of these communities is comfortable and enriching, offering programs and connections that focus on strengthening the mind and body. In addition, memory care communities provide services that include 24-hour health monitoring, 24-hour security, and daily living assistance.

How Do I Know It’s Time for Assisted Living?

The right time to consider an assisted living community will vary from person to person. However, certain signs or circumstances can indicate it may be time to consider additional care options, such as:
  • Living alone has been a safety concern
  • New or worsening health issues
  • Challenges with daily tasks
  • Lack of social opportunities
The key to a positive transition starts with honest conversations about the wants and needs of everyone involved while taking health and safety into consideration.
