Simplify your search for senior living.
Independent living is a choice that lets you continue living life as you choose, but without the worries of home maintenance and upkeep, transportation, planning and preparing meals and other daily concerns. Surrounded by others with similar life experiences, you can access an array of life-enhancing amenities and services that add vitality and quality leisure time to your days.
Actually, that’s the best time to move into a retirement community, when you can fully enjoy all the exceptional perks available to you. Free from daily worries with new peace of mind for the future, you can discover new talents, make new friends, travel easily, pursue new levels of wellness and, in general, get more out of each day. The most common regret expressed by people who live in senior living is, “Why did I wait so long?”
Before you make a decision about independent living in a senior living community, it’s best to visit several options. Talk to the team. Take a tour and try out the food. Do residents look happy and engaged? Is the atmosphere lively and positive? Also consider if you would prefer a rental senior living community over one which has a large entrance fee. Make a list before you visit of everything that matters most to you.

Assisted living offers individuals assistance with the activities of daily living — such as dressing, bathing, dining, medication management — while still offering every opportunity for maintaining independence. Residents are free to go about their day, knowing a helping hand is available if needed.
Any person who would appreciate the peace of mind that comes from knowing assistance is available if needed, whether for daily activities, medication reminders or other daily needs. In addition, for someone who does not wish to live alone, assisted living offers security as well as the companionship of good neighbors and a helpful team.
If you are a Veteran or the widow of a Veteran, you may be eligible for a wide variety of benefits available to all U.S. military Veterans. These benefits can help cover the costs of both assisted living and memory care. In addition, many long-term care insurance policies also help cover the costs of assisted living, but you will need to review your specific coverage to be sure.
Memory care provides a specialized atmosphere for residents coping with memory loss, Alzheimer’s or other dementia-related disorders. Therapeutic activities and programs help maximize cognitive development, diminish anxiety, lessen confusion and increase peace of mind.
Normal forgetfulness is part of the aging process and usually begins in middle age. However, there is a great difference between occasionally forgetting your keys and dementia. People with dementia cannot retrieve information and, in most cases, lose the ability of how to remember. Dementia can be a variety of diagnoses. The most common is Alzheimer’s, a severe, progressive loss of recent memory and thinking ability.
A few factors to watch for: a senior who suddenly stops doing a longtime hobby or withdraws. Sudden weight loss. Change in grooming habits. A house in disorder. An inability to follow conversations. If you suspect that a friend or family member’s memory loss is disrupting their daily routine, it could be time to seek medical advice.
A quality memory care program provides countless benefits such as safety, nutrition and professional support. Activities and programs provide mental stimulation and interaction, especially when drawn from that individual’s life experiences. Therapeutic tools such as music and art can awaken the senses and provide moments of personal success. In addition, many memory care residents benefit from the enriching ambiance of a senior living community that also includes independent living and assisted living.
At Towne Club Windermere, our Wellness Director is like a new best friend for residents. They are a vital component in continuity of care, sharing stories with a resident, playing games and attending programs with them, and helping team members stay abreast of how each individual resident is doing. The Wellness Director working in memory care is specially trained to work with residents living with dementia or Alzheimer’s.
Alis refers to documenting aspects of a resident’s care in real-time. For example, the exact time a medication is administered, or not administered due to a special circumstance, is recorded so that an accurate profile of care for that individual is always available. At Towne Club Windermere, this also allows the team to have an accurate report on each resident. Should a physician phone in a prescription during the evening, or another event occur that impacts the resident, the information is immediately updated. This greatly reduces the possibility of errors and results in a true continuity of care.
