The holiday season means listening to the sweet sounds of caroling, dazzling decorations and mouthwatering meals. It’s also the time to spend with family. Whether it’s celebrating traditions like shopping for deals on Black Friday together or sharing food at the table, we tend to focus on the most important thing during the holidays – connecting with our loved ones.

As we spend time with family, we may recognize that our parents may not be thriving in the way they should be. Maybe they aren’t able to get out of the house to socialize as often as they would like. Or activities of daily living, like housekeeping and self-care, are becoming too burdensome.

The question may come to mind: is my loved one ready for senior living? This may seem like a big step, but at Meadow Lakes, we don’t want you to feel overwhelmed. The experts in our community are available to answer any questions you need and help guide you through the process. Keep reading to learn a little more about senior living options and the lifestyle our community has to offer.

Senior Living Options

When examining whether or not your loved one is ready for senior living, it’s important to understand their needs and the level of care they are looking for. As a continuing care retirement community, Meadow Lakes offers a variety of senior living options to fit your loved one’s needs.

  • Independent Living is for those looking to continue an active lifestyle with a plan in place for the future.
  • Assisted Living offers the personalized care needed to thrive in a comfortable community.
  • The Connections program allows Memory Care residents the ability to stay linked to their world with activities and services tailored to their needs.
  • Skilled Nursing provides 24/7 specialized care from a caring team of medical professionals, allowing your loved one a higher quality of life.

Along with these options, we also offer rehabilitation for those who need to get back on their feet following an illness, injury or surgery.

And what happens if mom and dad have different care needs? When you choose Meadow Lakes, there’s no need to worry. We offer a full continuum of care that ensures their needs will be met, no matter the level of care they need.
