What is Assisted Living?
Assisted Living helps seniors live each day to the fullest with professional daily assistance, tailored to their specific health or personal care needs. Assisted Living communities offer service and care options such as housekeeping, meal preparation, personal hygiene, medication management, transportation, and more. Families and their loved ones will find Assisted Living communities are dedicated to providing the highest level of care, but also understand the personal value of maintaining independence and choice. Many Assisted Living options offer upscale amenities, engaging events, and diverse programming for residents to enjoy. In fact, today’s families and seniors can expect a bright, fulfilling lifestyle and have a variety of senior living apartments, communities, and properties to choose from in order to find just the right fit.
The Assisted Living Experience
Today’s seniors can expect an active, vibrant lifestyle in their Assisted Living community with the events and activities tailored to their preferences and abilities. While you will still find opportunities to play perennial favorites like bingo and bridge, the communities of today truly think outside the box when creating ambiances and programming for their residents.
Our Assisted Living communities place a priority on enjoyment and relaxation. Many include well-manicured outdoor spaces with lush surroundings and daily opportunities to get out and enjoy the sunshine. Inside, spacious community rooms are designed for socialization with plenty of cozy nooks and niches for those wanting a little rest and relaxation for the day. These vibrant atmospheres are complemented by a wide array of planned social events, activities, and education opportunities. Everything is perfectly catered and adapted to residents to create days full of enjoyment.
At Senior Lifestyle, our Assisted Living communities place a high-priority on the daily enjoyment of their residents. They provide daily programming and unique activities for seniors that make each day brighter. From card games and crafts to cooking activities, community gardening, and daily trivia, there is always a way for residents to join in.
Learning and Discovery
There are many ways for today’s active seniors to expand their world from inside their communities. Art and education classes have become a staple on monthly calendars, along with seminars on topics such as historical figures and wellness. Book, poetry, and writing clubs have also become popular, providing another way for seniors to grow and express themselves in the new community.
Active and On-the-Go
Staying active can keep seniors enjoying the hobbies and lifestyle they love, longer. Physical activities for seniors in Assisted Living have become an important part of the daily routine. From walking clubs, tai chi, and water aerobics to adapted exercises such as balance classes and chair yoga, seniors of all ability levels can find a structured exercise class or activity that keeps them healthy and on the go.
Friends and Fun
Part of the appeal of Assisted Living is that it provides a natural, comfortable setting to meet other seniors and build friendships. Communities focus on planning social events that encourage interaction including happy hours, movie nights, and trips to local eateries, making it simple to make connections and form friendships.
Places for Pets
Pets can be an important source of love and companionship for seniors. Today’s senior living communities understand that connection and welcome these special friends. Many events and activities are pet-friendly too, making it easy for pets to feel equally at home and at ease in the community from the start.
What is Memory Care?
Memory Care communities tailor their environment, programming, and personal care to people living with dementia or Alzheimer’s diagnosis. These communities provide a safe, secure, and calming atmosphere that helps residents feel more comfortable and at ease. A team of professional nursing staff are trained in the cognitive, behavioral, and physical symptoms that often accompany dementia. This helps them adapt their care and interactions to create a helpful and restful home for residents. Memory Care communities have security measures such as enclosed outdoor spaces and secure entries and exits to safeguard against wandering. Families can feel confident knowing their loved one is being cared for in a conscientious community built specifically to cater to their needs.

At Senior Lifestyle, our modern Memory Care communities focus on making each day more vibrant for their residents, no matter their current abilities and cognition. Our Memory Care communities create atmospheres that allow residents and their families to live with confidence, knowing they are well-cared for, safe, and secure.
Environment and Atmosphere
Residents living with memory impairment, dementia, or Alzheimer’s thrive best in calm atmospheres and familiar settings that minimize distraction and confusion. Our Memory Care communities provide this type of atmosphere inside and out, with beautiful, enclosed outdoor spaces. Families can feel more confident because their loved one is surrounded by 24/7 attentive care, security systems, and alarmed community entrances and exits.
Memory Care communities tailor their social interactions, daily programs, and stimulating activities to fit with the abilities of their Memory Care residents. These changes can include adaptation for sound and distraction, calming activities, and gentle encouragement. Many communities provide programming that encourages brain health and socialization centered around long-term recall.
embrace Memory Care
Senior Lifestyle has created embrace Memory Care to help residents living with dementia or Alzheimer’s find more joy and connection in their lives. This program is based on the latest memory research and engages residents by creating moments that stimulate the senses and call on engrained activities to encourage interaction with the world around them. This program takes personalized care one step further by forming daily rhythms for residents that allow more choice and independence in their days, such as choosing activities and menu items through visual cues. Finally, embrace Memory Care supports family members and friends in creating more meaning and connection in their visits through innovative programs and guided interactions.

Many families struggle with the question, “When is it time for a nursing home?” While the senior living industry has redefined what many people ordinarily think of when they hear “nursing home”, reputable communities will walk families through the decision-making process by working closely with physicians to assess their loved ones’ needs to decide whether a skilled nursing community is the right fit.
