How Excellent Senor Care and Active Living Meet at a Planned Community

Families are sometimes surprised when seniors choose to sell their homes and move into a planned community. Many people have no idea that a facility like Elk Ridge Village offers a lively, interesting lifestyle, and still provides all the Senior Care residents need. Modern communities combine security with an active lifestyle that includes:

COMFORTABLE APARTMENTS: Seniors or their families can choose independent living, assisted living, or memory care. The monthly rent includes housekeeping, utilities, and maintenance. Independent living provides a choice of apartments, ranging from 751 to 1281 square feet. To help new residents choose an apartment, layouts and information are available at the Elk Village website, Apartments include TV, Internet, and phone connections. They offer full kitchens, spacious closets, window dressings, fire detectors, and sprinklers. There are also a variety of apartments for residents who opt for assisted care. Their units are also gracious and set in the same beautiful grounds, but offer well-appointed kitchenettes, rather than kitchens. Memory care services include gracious, comfortable suites with most of the amenities found in any of the units, but  they do not include kitchens.

ACTIVITIES:  Residents of an Elk Ridge senior community have access to dozens of planned or individual activities and leisure resources. These include fishing, working out in the fitness center, and access to the bar/lounge. Seniors enjoy free transportation, and can join community outings and events. They may spend time in the library/computer center, or community room.  There is also a barbershop/beauty salon. Seniors may also enjoy fine dining in a restaurant-style, community setting. Caregivers will tailor activities to fit those who choose assisted living or are receiving memory care.

*  A WELLNESS FOCUS :  All residents have 24/7 access to staff help. In addition, they may consult a registered nurse, or take advantage of medical practitioners’ visits. All senors have free transportation to doctor visits. Those who need help can get assistance with medication management and reminders. Caring staff will assist residents with grooming, bathing, dressing, and other needs, when required.

Seniors who want the security of knowing that help is at hand often move into a planned community. However, they also choose these lively residences because of their beautiful settings, gracious apartments, and wide variety of interesting activities and amenities.
