Lifestyle Choices

In an effort to better serve those who might desire a change in lifestyle, we have nurtured a relationship with several area retirement communities. Our goal is to become acquainted with as many communities as possible so we may help our customers to find a community that is just right for them. We can arrange for a consultation or even an overnight visit at the center of your choice. Listed below is an overview of the types of care available:

Independent Living

Whether it's a condominium or a house, some prefer the freedom of living in a one floor, low maintenance home. Some retirement communities offer this type of housing with an admission fee and a monthly charge that covers items such as exterior maintenance, security, taxes and recreational programs.

Assisted Living

For those who require some type of assistance with daily activities, many retirement centers offer assisted living accommodations which still allows the resident to maintain independence. There is usually a monthly charge which covers such items as meals, utilities, housekeeping, security, local transportation, health and wellness programming, recreational activities and other services.

Skilled Care

For those who require around-the-clock, long term care in a highly skilled facility such as a nursing home or specialty nursing facility.
