Making the decision to enter a retirement community can be daunting. Between assisted living communities, memory support neighborhoods, active senior living communities and senior independent living, there are many different types of senior living to consider. And even when the right community is found, it can be difficult to understand what care options will be best within that community.
When it comes to needing an extra level of support in daily activities, assisted living or personal care may be the best options available in retirement. Some seniors, however, are apprehensive to commit to assisted living or personal care at a retirement community, for fear of giving up the flexibility of their current way of life. But what they often learn is that assisted living or personal care can make them more independent than before. At Country Meadows, assisted living and personal care options are available for seniors looking to enjoy the lifestyle they already know and love, but with extra assistance as needed.
If these options sound like what you’ve been searching for, Country Meadows may be the right choice for you.
What to expect from assisted living care at Country Meadows
Life at Country Meadows is full of possibilities no matter what your care needs are. Because of all of the options we provide, retirement living with us can enhance the lifestyle of any senior, even if assisted living or personal care is needed. We offer apartment-style living options in addition to pet-friendly assisted living. One rental fee covers all utilities so residents no longer have to worry about the upkeep of home ownership and can focus on living fully. Assisted living and personal care residents enjoy chef-prepared meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner, in addition to snacks and drinks throughout the day.
Customized care programs for every resident
Medical care is available at any time of day in case of emergencies, with trained staff members on duty 24 hours a day as part of our assisted living and personal care services. The needs of every assisted living resident are addressed with individualized programs aimed at strengthening skills that will improve their quality of life. Our coworkers can assist in small activities like helping residents bathe or get dressed, as well as medication management or mobility assistance. If a more detailed level of care is necessary, our Pathways Restorative Services teams can help to create custom physical, occupational or speech therapy programs. Additional services can also be made available through our Connections Memory Support Team if needed.
Staying active and social in our personal care and assisted living communities
Assisted living and personal care residents are of course welcome to attend any events on campus and participate in all community-wide activities. There are several community life programs that are designed to focus on total well-being for our assisted living residents also. These fun and educational activities center on physical, social and spiritual lifestyles, providing wellness opportunities for all levels of ability. All of these options combined with a variety of on-campus activities like art classes, outdoor dining and gardening make for a fulfilling and social lifestyle within our senior retirement communities.
From long-term care to senior independent living, our campuses are able to deliver quality of life to all residents, no matter their needs.
