Seniors who require skilled nursing are cared for in Gull Creek’s Treasure Cove, a secure neighborhood with a nurturing atmosphere. We offer activities custom-designed for those with Alzheimer’s and Dementia along with therapeutic recreation specialist-led programs to maintain and enhance wellness.
What is independent living?
Independent living allows seniors, who are in need of no assistance in daily activities, to enjoy an independent and active lifestyle within a safe retirement community. This option at Gull Creek’s active and engaged senior living community provides hassle-free maintenance, cleaning and meal services along with an ample amount of activities and events for a fun-filled social life.
What is the difference between independent living and assisted living?
Choosing between independent living and assisted living is a matter of how well the person can care for themselves. Residents of an assisted living center receive support for daily care activities. They are free to live as independently as possible, but may require help with housekeeping, meal preparation, laundry, or transportation. Residents of an independent living community can still care for their daily needs, but enjoy the convenience of having assistance when needed.
What is memory care?
Memory care specifically caters to patients with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and other memory-related impairments. Unlike assisted living communities, memory care provides 24-hour supervision as well as an on-call doctor in order to meet the needs of the residents. In . In addition to meals, housekeeping and laundry service, transportation, exercise and social experiences, these communities usually offer specific activities designed to nurture those with Alzheimer’s and other forms of memory impairments.
How do I know if my loved one needs assisted living?
If your loved one has difficulty maintaining their home, preparing meals, or transporting themselves, it may be time to consider an assisted living community. For many seniors, this signifies a tremendous loss of independence. However, assisted living communities are designed to give support to your loved one while helping them maintain as much of their independence as possible. From dining options to medication management, assisted living can offer a variety of support amenities and social opportunities that keep your loved one safe, healthy and engaged.
