Senior Assisted Living

Compassionate Assisted Living Care Combined with Freedom and Independence

If you or a loved one could use daily help with personal care, transportation, meals, housekeeping and more, assisted living may be the right choice. Our senior assisted living options are available at three communities and include 24-hour staffing, help with personal care and medications, three meals each day, housekeeping, laundry service, transportation, recreational programs and more.

At Episcopal SeniorLife Communities, we’re committed to individualized care so that every one of our senior assisted living residents can live a healthier, more purposeful life, enriched with wellness and learning activities, social opportunities and care coordination from our dedicated, professional staff. We live our mission of “Life. Inspired every day.”

What is Assisted Living?

Sooner or later, many of us need some extra help as we age. You may notice that things like housekeeping and cooking, or managing your medications or finances, are becoming more difficult for yourself or a loved one. When mobility declines, or a person is no longer able to drive, isolation is often the result—and studies show that isolation and lack of social opportunities lead to a decline in physical and mental health.

For many older people, an assisted living community can be an ideal setting, because it offers a safe and supportive community to live in your own place, with access to services that are based on your or your loved one’s individual needs.

Frequently Asked Questions About Senior Assisted Living Communities

A: It’s a safe and supportive living environment for seniors who need regular help with a wide range of daily activities, but also provides the freedom to live an independent lifestyle within the community.

A: The accommodations available in Assisted Living can range from semi-private studios to one- and two-bedroom full apartments designed with features like wider doorways and step-in showers. A limited number offer full kitchens, and many offer kitchenettes with appliances.

A: Specific services can vary from place to place, but Senior Assisted Living communities offer trained staff who help with daily activities, including personal care, managing medications, housekeeping and laundry services, plus scheduled transportation. You will also find dining services with different meal options, with the meal plan included in the monthly fee. Many times, Assisted Living communities also offer seniors a wide range of health and wellness plus social and entertainment activities.

A: These range from assistance in deciding what to bring from your or your loved one’s previous home to a new apartment, to health and wellness support, onsite medical services, learning opportunities, plus social and entertainment opportunities. Some of these may be included with the monthly rent, while others can be purchased separately, on an as-needed basis.

A: Whether you choose Independent Living or Assisted Living for yourself or a loved one depends on how much help is needed with daily activities—things like bathing and dressing, medication management, making meals, laundry, housecleaning and other chores. Personal safety is a key consideration. The advice of your doctor and/or an eldercare specialist or social worker can help you and your family decide whether assisted living is a better option for you or a family member, if you’re not sure.

A: Yes, that’s a possibility, however, many people find that in-home caregiving can quickly become very expensive and difficult to manage. Many people choose to live in an assisted living community because the social opportunities and stimulation are just as important as the care they receive. Plus, they often find it’s more affordable, enjoyable and provides real peace of mind, not only for themselves, but also for concerned family members.

A: While seniors in Assisted Living communities can continue living safely with some independence despite moderate health challenges, those who need Skilled Nursing aren’t safe without consistent clinical oversight and complete assistance with their daily activities. Again, talking with a doctor and/or a senior living consultant is helpful if you’re not sure which type of living option is the best choice in your situation.

A: Yes, and it’s smart to think about future needs as you decide where you or a loved one will live. Now, many senior living communities offer a full array of care and services to make it easier to transition from one type of living option to another, and most communities will offer their residents priority consideration to other levels of care when they’re needed. It’s worth considering a senior living organization that offers you or your loved one these additional levels of care and extra peace of mind when you compare your choices.
