Questions for Enhanced Independent Living residents and families

For seniors requiring a “little extra help,” our Enhanced Independent Living communities offer our residents an on-site, 24-hour third-party healthcare provider. They provide services on an “as needed basis” such as grooming, bathing, escorting, help getting dressed and medication management. We also offer the services of an on-site physician, physical and occupational therapist and a podiatrist and audiologist if needed. Questions you should ask include:

  • What health and wellness services are available to help maintain my independence?
  • Are daily maid service, weekly housekeeping and weekly linen and personal laundry services include in the monthly rent?
  • What is the response time to emergencies? Does the community have a clearly stated procedure for responding to a resident’s medical emergency?
  • Are my pets welcome?
  • How does the community create a sense of inclusion by encouraging residents to participate in activities?
  • At what point would my loved one have to leave? Do you have an alternative if my needs change?
