Independent living versus assisted living and personal care

At every Country Meadows campus across Pennsylvania and in Maryland, there is one common goal: to give residents the best senior living experience possible. That experience can look and feel different to many residents, however, which is why Country Meadows offers several different types of senior living arrangements, a variety of care options, and amenities that meet unique needs. One of the most common questions that seniors ask when considering their retirement plans is, “What kind of care do I need?” And when considering assisted living and personal care or independent living, there are key differences that can help families make the right decision.


Amenities and services available in our independent living communities

Independent living at Country Meadows gives residents the freedom to live their lives within a community environment that caters to the needs of seniors. Our campuses offer affordable rental apartments within a neighborhood setting and include a variety of floor plans to choose from. Residents also have the opportunity to take advantage of all the general amenities on campus including dining, entertainment, laundry and housekeeping services, a state-of-the-art gym, and Community Life programs. In the case of emergencies, all residents have access to our medical staff which is on duty 24 hours a day.


If you can imagine living life at your own pace in a maintenance free environment, all within a community supporting the health and well-being of you and your neighbors, you can envision independent living at Country Meadows.


Standard features of assisted living or personal care

When it comes to assisted living or personal care, Country Meadows strives to give residents the same standard of living as our independent living residents with varying levels of extra help. As some seniors age, it is common for even active seniors to have a need for assistance in everyday activities. Whether a resident has mobility concerns or needs help getting dressed or requires help managing medications, our assisted living and personal care options are in place to give seniors the care they need to live a vibrant life. And because many seniors utilizing our assisted living or personal care services cannot live fully independently, these programs offer a bit more structure based on their needs that help them be as independent as possible.


Every assisted living or personal care resident enjoys programs that are customized to offer them a better quality of life. Residents can enjoy apartment-style living with trained and compassionate staff members on duty and available 24-hours a day. In addition, three meals are served daily plus snacks and beverages as needed, all prepared by our in-house chef.


How a variety of senior living options come together at Country Meadows

Although there are differences in the services we offer, there are factors that bring our communities together as well. All of our apartments are equipped with wireless internet and cable, with all utilities covered in the rental cost. As our campuses and units are pet-friendly, all residents are welcome to own a pet. Community programs that center around physical, social and spiritual well-being are available to any resident and can be adjusted based on their needs or limitations.

Above all, the level of care and attention we give to our residents remains the same no matter their needs. And with affordable independent living and assisted living or personal care options available to those searching for an all-inclusive senior living community, we can give our residents the retirement experience they deserve.

Country Meadows is currently offering virtual tours for interested residents. You can learn more about these and all of the services we offer on our campuses by visiting our website. From assisted living or personal care to memory support and even restorative care services, Country Meadows provides a senior living environment that all can enjoy.
