Independent Living, Assisted Living, or Memory Care?
Making the move to an older adult community is a big decision, and it can be challenging to find the right community for you. You may be wondering where to go, or what the difference is between Independent Living, Assisted Living, and Memory Care. The following article will help you determine which residence is right for you.
While your independence is prioritized throughout all of Trico LivingWell, our 55+ senior apartments function just like a regular apartment in the middle of a great community. At Trico LivingWell, you will enjoy your own independent lifestyle, participating in activities when and if you’d like to, and following your own schedule. You may continue with certain household tasks on your own, such as cooking, cleaning, or laundry – or you may decide to have those tasks taken care of for you. Regardless of your ability, the choice is up to you.
Assisted Living refers to the additional assistance you might want to help you continue to live your life your way, as independently as possible. At Trico LivingWell, we are here to assist with cooking, cleaning, laundry, medication administration, bathing, and more. Plus, you can enjoy scheduled activities catered to your interests and abilities. Whatever you’d like support with, we are here to help.
Memory Care refers to around the clock care for older adults experiencing memory loss and diseases such as Alzheimer’s. We recognize that each person’s journey is unique, which is why our care philosophy is rooted in personalized care. Each member of our staff has undergone simulated dementia training in order to better understand the experiences of those affected by cognitive impairment.
Our Memory Care Households are safe living areas fully equipped to ensure the highest quality of care is delivered, a calm and regulated environment is maintained, and engaging activities are scheduled to help residents interact and socialize.
Trico LivingWell is a safe community built to enhance the lives of older adults with elevated standards of cleanliness, security, design, clinical expertise, and culinary craftsmanship. Our goal is to help you make the best decision for you, so that you can Love Your Days! If you would like to tour our residences, or if you would like to speak with a member of our team, click here.
