Senior Living Options at Elmcroft

Elmcroft Senior Living offers a variety of senior care options across the United States. Learn more about our senior living care options below.

What is Assisted Living? The Complete Guide

Seniors aging and other changing circumstances often lead families to ask, “What is assisted living and how does it work?" 

Assisted living facilities provide personalized long-term care. Seniors in assisted living communities receive housing, meals and support. It’s an ideal option for older adults in fair or better health who can manage daily life on their own, for the most part, but would benefit from help with essential activities like managing medications, using the restroom, bathing, dressing, grooming or eating. 

Elmcroft Assisted Living communities offer a safe, comfortable and caring environment where seniors can maintain their independence with the confidence of knowing they have the continued support they need, even if their needs change. Extra support means more freedom to enjoy and engage in the amenities and social life that make our communities vibrant.  

Independent Living

Elmcroft Independent Living communities provide older adults the convenience, amenities and comforts that make retirement living carefree. Choices abound, from apartment floor plans and restaurant-style dining options to social and educational programs, live entertainment and amenities — all offered to make it easier for you to pursue retirement living on your terms. 

Memory Care for Seniors with Alzheimer's & Dementia

Elmcroft Memory Care facilities are comfortable, safe and nurturing homes for loved ones with Alzheimer’s, dementia or other forms of memory loss. Our Memory Care communities feature a specialized program called Chronicles, designed to provide the secure environment and specialized support that makes an important difference to our residents. We provide care and guided activities that encourage wellness, engagement and as much independence as safely possible for each of our residents.

Respite Care for the Elderly

Elmcroft Respite Care provides the most professional and compassionate care for seniors during short-term stays. Some seniors come to us after a hospital stay or injury makes it difficult to stay in their homes while they get better. Others come when their family caregivers go on vacation or travel for business. And for many, short-term respite stays are the perfect way to “try out” our communities.

Skilled Nursing Facilities & Care

Elmcroft Skilled Nursing provides the skilled care and rehabilitation services our residents need after a hospital discharge or if they have a decline in health. Our residents can receive this important skilled care when they need it, right here in the community they call home.
