At Monticello West, we believe you should have access to reliable information and resources that might help you understand just about everything you need to know about senior care.
The Assisted Living Federation of America defines assisted living as a long-term care option that combines housing, support services, and health care, as needed. Assisted living is designed for individuals who require assistance with everyday activities such as meals, medication management or assistance, bathing, dressing, and transportation. Some residents may have memory disorders including Alzheimer’s, or they may need help with mobility, incontinence, or other challenges.
While skilled nursing care provides the highest level of care for seniors outside of a hospital, assisted living is best for those who need some help with bathing, dressing, toileting, grooming, and eating but do not require 24-hours-a-day health care by doctors.
Assisted living may be a good choice if:
“Mom loves her apartment. It’s nicely painted and carpeted, and the size is perfect for her. She has a living room area with a full-size couch and chairs, so she can entertain guests. I visit a couple of times a week, and my husband swings by on other days. My son stops by every few weeks, too. Mom has her own space that looks and feels like home. Every time I’m there, she just seems contented. ”
“The minute I entered the community I liked what I saw, but it didn’t stop there. I’ve visited other communities where the furniture was lovely in the main areas and when you proceeded down the hallways, it was a different scenario. But as we continued to look around at Monticello West, I thought: This is pleasant! ”
“The staff is caring and genuine. From the beginning, we didn’t feel like we were being processed, date-stamped and handed off to the next person. The community must have an exceptional hiring process, because I have yet to find someone there who isn’t qualified, doesn’t respect me or that I don’t enjoy. The caregivers are polite, and perhaps most important, I trust them.”
For older adults looking for a senior living community that feels like home, Monticello West is the perfect option. Our Highland Park community is not just a classic, it’s a timeless classic, and you’ll sense the difference the moment you are welcomed with open arms through our front doors.Contact Us
