How do I know when someone needs Assisted Living?
When help with activities of daily living — such as taking medicines, bathing, dressing, meals, transportation and housekeeping — is needed, an Assisted Living residence can be the answer. Trained professionals provide this support while helping preserve an individual’s independence.
Can I bring my own furniture and decor?
Making your apartment feel like your home is important. Residents bring their favorite things and furniture to make the space their own.
Do you have to be a resident of Independent Living first before you can take advantage of Assisted Living, Nursing Care, or other services?
No. In fact, last year more than 700 “non-residents” recuperated from surgery or benefitted from Rebab in our Health Care Center. Our rehabilitative services include physical and occupational therapy and speech/language pathology.
What is the difference between Independent Living, Assisted Living and Nursing Care?
Independent Living is designed for those who can live safely without any assistance or supervision. The services provided are primarily for convenience and lifestyle benefits.
Assisted Living is designed for individuals who need regular support but do not need a nurse on a daily basis. Assistance can be provided with activities such as meals, laundry, bathing, dressing and medication reminders.
Nursing Care provides the necessary care for those who need a nurse or certified nursing assistant on a daily basis. Individuals might have chronic conditions that require a skilled caregiver in our nursing care center.
What if I am independent but my spouse needs to be in Assisted Living or Nursing Care? Can we still move in? Where would we live?
A number of couples living at Presbyterian Homes do not share the same good health. On an individual basis, we can create a program that may include one spouse in Assisted Living or Nursing Care, and the other in a nearby independent apartment.
