How do I know which level of support is appropriate?

February 22, 2017

    Glenmeadow has become known for our ability to personalize services to the individual. While we do have criteria for both independent living and assisted living, we pride ourselves on working with individuals and families to support residents as they age while enjoying the highest possible quality of life and maintaining maximum independence and dignity.

    Independent living offers residents access to all of our services and amenities, with limited nursing and support services included in the monthly fee. Residents receive a meal allowance for use in the dining room, and apartments include full kitchens. A monthly activity calendar is provided listing all of the available social, educational, and wellness offerings. If appropriate, additional assisted living services may be provided to independent living residents in their existing apartment and can be arranged through our Director of Resident Services.

    Traditional assisted living is offered in the Chestnut Knoll wing. A care plan is developed for each individual and support services are included in the monthly fee. Assistance with personal care, nursing supervision, medication management, all meals, and activities are included and are tailored to fulfill the individual’s care plan. Licensed nursing and support staff are assigned to each individual each day and are available to provide reminders, escorts to meals, and companionship.

    A move to a skilled nursing facility may be appropriate for those individuals in the advanced stages of cognitive impairment, those needing assistance with feeding, transfers that require two people, or those with acute medical conditions. If needed, our Director of Resident Services can work with you to coordinate the transition to a skilled nursing facility.
