An Assisted Living residence is a special combination of housing for the elderly and or handicapped with the continuous personalized care that they need to lead a respectful dignified life with as much independence as possible.
Assisted Living is an enhanced form of congregated housing, fitting somewhere between conventional housing and 24 hours nursing care facilities. Care can consist of assistance with activities of daily living, housekeeping, laundry, meal preparation, transportation as well as supervision with minor medical and or management behavioral problems such as early stages of dementia supervision is provided 24 hours a day, 7 days per week, specializing in supportive and loving care.
We are different from other assisted livings; we do not only provide transportation that drops off a resident at your office door. We send a knowledgeable staff person to accompany each resident to their doctor’s appointment with important information in order to assist in determining the patient’s best course of treatment. This partnership works!
