Long Term Care
Long Term Care provides seniors with outstanding medical service, an ever-changing social calendar, and ongoing assistance with day-to-day tasks such as dressing, dining, and bathing. Some Long Term Care communities can house one or two dozen residents, while other Care Homes have been known to offer over a hundred residential units at one facility. Seniors can choose between single or shared accommodation, allowing them to select the scenario which best matches their social, personal and economic requirements.
Long Term Care facilities provide their residents with an independent, comfortable, and maintenance-free lifestyle. A wide range of support services are available on a round-the-clock basis. Experienced nurses and care aids can provide specialized assistance for individuals living with a chronic condition, dementia, or mobility issues.
On-site chefs and nutritionists make it easy to create a delicious meal plan which caters to your specific dietary requirements – all while enjoying top quality healthcare in a home-like setting. Every resident is free to participate in an assortment of day outings, shopping excursions, recreational activities, and volunteer opportunities. Many facilities also offer regularly scheduled fitness groups, nutritional seminars, and arts & crafts classes.
