QIndependent Living, Assisted Living, Or Memory Care? How Do I Know Which Is Right For Me?
A

What is Independent Living?
Independent Living is for seniors who wish to live independently while benefiting from the advantages of an enhanced social and recreational lifestyle. With services like restaurant style dining, housekeeping, flat linen laundry service, and scheduled transportation, Independent Living residents are free from the burden of home-maintenance concerns and have more time to enjoy the things they love. In addition, Independent Living residents do not require routine personal assistance and care services.

What is Assisted Living?
Assisted Living is for seniors who need help with the activities of daily life, yet wish to remain as independent as possible. Assisted Living residents enjoy the same features and amenities as Independent Living residents, but with the added assistance of personal care, personal laundry, and three meals daily, including snacks. We offer levels of personal care to best meet our resident’s needs.  Our personal assistance and care services include assistance with bathing, dressing, grooming, medication assistance, etc. Services can be increased or decreased over time, as needed.
