Who Should Consider the Helpful Living Apartment
We receive many requests from individuals who
are no longer able to be as independent as is required in their current homes;
however, they do not need the extent of care given in our licensed intermediate
care area, which offers all prepared meals, medication administration,
treatment programs, prescribed therapy programs, etc. Individuals who are
having difficulty preparing three meals a day, maintaining a home, and getting
out into the community would be able to enjoy the continuance of independent
living with the advantages of helpful services close at hand. Individuals
living in Helpful Living Apartments may
at some time need temporary or permanent assistance not offered within the
program. How are these services made available?
A temporary illness such as a cold or the flu
may not necessitate further additional care or assistance. However, routine
(regular) assistance with dressing, personal hygiene and/or mobility,
assistance in dealing with incontinency, medication supervision and/or advanced
problems of forgetfulness would require a move to licensed level of care within
our facility. The availability of additional services within our campus
community affords a helpful transition to increasing care needs.

Living Apartments to fulfill the needs of individuals wishing security and
