Finding the right living situation for you, your spouse, or relative can be confusing. Typically, a general level of service can be determined based on overall needs and desires. Then, the community will work with each resident and/or family to develop a Growth and Wellness Plan™ based on their specific needs.
Embracing Elderhood: Planning for the next adventure
If you are entering elderhood as a vibrant, active person, Compass Senior Living may be the place for you!
These days, many people are healthy and active into their 80’s, 90’s and beyond. They are smart and wise about a lot of things, including planning for their own future. As savvy realists, they recognize that as we age, it is important to be in a supportive community with other like-minded people.
Many independent seniors decide to join us at Compass Senior Living because they want to enjoy the benefits of living in a social community. You’ll enjoy the opportunities of assisted living while staying independent of care as long as you like or are able. Far into the future, when you might need some assistance, you have a support system and care team at the ready that already know you, your preferences, and your personality - and you know them!
What is assisted living? Assisted living, was originally created in the 1980’s as a less expensive, more home-like alternative to the traditional nursing home.
Although regulations vary from state to state, assisted living provides a wide array of services designed to keep an elder as independent as possible, for as long as possible. In most cases, assisted living helps seniors stay more active, social, and engaged in life than they otherwise would be living alone. Not to mention the added security of 24-hour staff, assistance with medications, and communication between healthcare providers.
What is memory care? Memory care, sometimes referred to as Alzheimer’s care, is a residential home-like care setting designed specifically to care for those with Alzheimer’s or other dementias.
In Memory Care neighborhoods we provide physical, emotional, social, and spiritual support for the people who live there. We also provide education and peace of mind for families who have a cognitively challenged loved one.
Our Memory Care team members undergo dementia-specific education including validation and elder-directed, person-centered training when learning how to provide assistance to elders with dementia. This training provides the team with the skills necessary to put the relationship with the resident first and the assistance (e.g. dressing) as a natural part of interacting with the resident. This builds trust and the care team learns to pay attention to and identify the residents needs and desires more quickly than if they were solely focused on getting the task done.
