Is Assisted Living Right For Me?

Making the decision to move into Assisted Living isn’t always an easy one. Many people are concerned about losing their individuality and freedoms in exchange for more care or assistance. But that is not the case at The Chateau Terraces, our Assisted Living residences. Living at The Terraces is a flexible but safe option that allows you to live the life you want, but with help where you need it.

When is Assisted Living the Right Choice?

As a general rule of thumb, Assisted Living is meant for those who need some help carrying out daily living tasks, such as cooking, bathing, or taking medications, but don’t need round-the-clock care. Here are a few signs that Assisted Living could be helpful for you or a loved one:

  • At risk for a fall or recovering from a recent fall, or concerns over decreased mobility
  • Having trouble remembering to take the correct medications at the correct time
  • Difficulty with getting dressed in the morning—trouble with reaching, buttoning or unbuttoning, putting on shoes and socks, etc.
  • Diagnosed with a chronic medical condition that needs careful monitoring, like diabetes or COPD
  • Unable to regularly schedule or drive to doctor’s appointments on own
  • Trouble getting into and out of the bathtub or shower or difficulty maintaining proper hygiene
  • Difficulty planning and cooking healthy meals
  • Memory loss
  • Concerns over recovering from a recent hospitalization alone at home

Sometimes it can be hard to notice these changes in yourself since they can occur gradually over time, so it’s important to talk regularly with your doctor and your family about the status of your health.

Our Care

Our treatment philosophy at The Chateau is patient-centric and unique to you. Our highly trained staff will tailor a plan to suit your needs, providing assistance where you need it but still allowing for your individuality and independence.

Assisted Living residences are equipped with emergency call buttons in the bathroom, and emergency assistance is available at all times, so you can rest easy knowing help is close by if you should need it. Our property is also in close proximity to two local hospitals. 

The Terraces

Residents at The Chateau Terraces can choose between a studio or one-bedroom apartment. One-bedroom units come equipped with a kitchen facility, and both floor plans offer private bathrooms with walk-in showers, generously sized closets, and roomy living space. We encourage you to decorate your apartment in your own style—make it feel like home! Enjoy maintenance-free living and housekeeping services, as well as restaurant-style dining options or take-out if you’d rather enjoy your meals in the comfort of your apartment. And family members and friends are always welcome to come visit! 

Terraces residents can bring along a personal vehicle, but convenient in-house transportation services are also available for trips to the doctor, store, activities, or other appointments.

Live Your Own Life

Our Assisted Living residents enjoy access to all the amenities of The Chateau, from our exercise classes to our library to our beauty parlor. Residents are welcomed and encouraged to participate in all of our daily activities, clubs, and events. Meet new friends, socialize, and enjoy your life with peace of mind!
