Let’s face it: there’s a stigma associated with Assisted Living. People confuse it with skilled nursing or end-of-life care. There’s this perception that Assisted Living means you can’t do anything for yourself, that you’re going to be locked away in a tiny shared room and forgotten about.
We at Melrose want to shatter that misconception. Because – especially here at Melrose Meadows – Assisted Living is seriously awesome. Here are our top reasons why.
Assisted Living is self-directed care.
We believe in helping our residents maintain as much independence as they possibly can. Need a little help getting a shower? No problem – we’ll help you with that. But if you don’t? We’ll leave you to it. Are the buttons on your shirt getting a little tougher to work? No worries – we’ll wrangle them for you – and then let you take care of the rest. We’re here to help you with whatever you need – without hampering your privacy and independence.
You have your privacy.
At Melrose Meadows, all of our residents have their own private apartments. That includes our Assisted Living residents. Because having your privacy is just as important – if not more so – when you’re getting a little extra help with day-to-day activities. But having your privacy doesn’t mean you have to be alone – we welcome your furry family members in Assisted Living, too.
There’s always someone around.
Our Assisted Living unit is staffed 24/7. Need help in the middle of the night? We’ll be there in the push of a button. And even if you don’t usually need assistance during the night, it’s nice to have the reassurance that should something happen, we’re here.
The amenities can’t be beat.
Three delicious meals per day, served restaurant-style in our elegant dining room. Free scheduled transportation to wherever you need to go in the area. A variety of activities and events – and personal reminders to come on out and join in the fun. Plus, weekly housekeeping and laundry services? What’s NOT to love?
There are many more reasons why Assisted Living is awesome – especially here at Melrose.
