For today’s active ladies and gentlemen, age 65 and over, who still have a lot to offer their families, friends and community but need some assistance with one or more daily activities.
Avoid sending your loved ones to a nursing home, in an unfamiliar environment. We provide them with companionship, security and assist with a wide variety of daily activities.
Our caregivers are sweet, caring, skilled, pre-screened, pre-qualified and come with complete background checks. They are here to help your senior family member live as independently as possible.
Assisted living provides long-term housing and care for seniors.
Assisted living residents are generally active, but may need support with activities of daily living (ADLs), such as bathing, dressing, and using the toilet.
Seniors in supportive assisted living can expect personalized care, nutritious meals, a wide range of social activities to cater to a variety of interests, and a sense of community in a safe, residential setting.
While each community is different, supportive living offers services and amenities to focus on important aspects of senior wellness, including physical health, intellectual stimulation, and social connection. These three foundational pillars help slow cognitive decline and keep seniors healthier and happier longer.
Some benefits include:
– Increased socialization
– Nutritious restaurant or family-style meals
– Medication reminders
– Help with Personal Care
– Transportation and Group Outings
– Recreational activities
– Senior-friendly, comfortable accommodations

There might come a time when it’s no longer safe for a senior to reside on their own.
As you investigate your options for assisted living, consider indications that your aging relative might require assistance.
Here are some examples:
A decrease in cognition:
• Do they appear more absent-minded or puzzled?
• Have you observed mood swings or changes?
• Do they typically lose their train of thought during discussions?
• Are they getting lost in familiar locations?
• Do they appear more distressed or irritable?
• Do they less have energy or motivation?
• Are they depressed?
You might see changes in your senior’s appearance and overall health, which suggests it might be time to speak about a supportive living plan.
You might discover your senior has actually unexpectedly lost weight rapidly.
Unexpected weight loss in elders could be an indication of a severe medical issue, however, it might also signify anxiety, cognitive issues, or behavioral changes that prevent excellent nutrition, like the inability to go to the grocery, or prepare their own meals.
If a senior who’s normally well-groomed looks disheveled, or if their typically tidy home appears messy, these could be indications that it might be time for supportive living.
Households who are taking care of an aging senior might discover dealing with their aging loved one is not working well and might be compromising their “parent to adult child” relationship.
Or they might reach a point when the tension of caregiving is impacting the caregiver’s health.
Taking care of an aging relative is a significant dedication that can, in some cases, trigger friction.
As a caregiver, it’s crucial to think about numerous aspects:
Can you supply the care your loved one requires?
Some family members might want to do the laundry and clean, however, might not feel ok with providing personal care, such as bathing and toileting.
Is caregiving impacting your relationship with your partner and kids?
Caregiving is long-term. Is offering to take care of an aging adult straining your other relationships?
Are you feeling stressed out?
Do you feel like you’ve been ignoring your own health?
Taking care of an aging senior loved one can put a caregiver at risk for tension, anxiety, and chronic conditions, like diabetes or heart problems.
If you can’t take care of an aging senior any longer, it might be time to think about assisted living.
While many family caretakers feel guilty about their choice, it’s essential to bear in mind that moving your loved one to senior living might lead to enhanced relationships, health, and lifestyle for both yourself and your senior.
