Assisted Living

When you are beginning your journey to find the perfect retirement living fit for yourself or a loved one, we will discuss the best options for you.

Our home-like environment is comfortable and offers all you will need as you or your loved one ages in place. With varying size apartments to suit your needs, we offer three delicious meals a day, plus snacks, as well as the most robust life enrichment and activities schedule in the area. We have a clinical team on-site that will assist with your activities of daily living. This will give you the sense of independence you may have been missing, having to rely on family or friends. Transportation to medical appointments is also offered as well as a multitude of field trips.

Please find a donation in honor/memory of Bertha Sutin. According to her daughter Marilyn, she really flourished under the care she received with you. Thank you for being there to provide care and purpose for those who need it, and peace of mind for the families.

Dementia in any form is a challenge, however, with our team of specially trained clinicians, we can enhance the lives of you or your loved ones during the most challenging stages of their disease.

We maximize the positives and neutralize the negatives with the help of cognitive enhancing technology such as our iN2L, which was designed for meaningful engagement. Additionally, we utilize the ABB, which is a wall mounted dashboard with touchscreens, sensors, and tactile activities familiar to users. These tools, along with our sensory room, allow for staff to assist in de-escalation when residents become agitated and alleviate some of the less comfortable symptoms of memory loss such as sun-downing.

You may also be interested in our Respite Program, which is a short stay in a fully furnished apartment that may help with a transition home from a hospital or rehab stay.

We also have families utilize respite if they are the primary caregivers and have a planned vacation. In fact, their loved ones can enjoy their own “vacation” in our docked cruise ship environment. With all the amenities, meals, and activities we have to offer, our assisted living truly feels like being on an extended vacation!
