When it comes to planning out the years of retirement, everyone’s journey is different. That’s why we offer continuing care so that our residents can spend their retirement enjoying their lives–not constantly worrying about what’s next. But how can you decide what level of housing and care is right for you? Here are some of the major differences between Assisted and Independent Living.
Life in The Chateau Estate homes has all the benefits of living on your own with the one giant added benefit of maintenance-free living. As a resident of the Estates, you’ll have the freedom to decorate, cook, relax and do all the things you’ve always done–but with a community of people just up the hill for culinary services and social outings.
The Chateau Suites offers 1- and 2-bedroom apartments for active seniors looking to downsize. The “suite” life includes restaurant-style dining, social events and daily activities, exercise classes and more. And all of our amenities are available right in your building! Like in the Estates, you have the freedom to customize your apartment and live your life your way.
Assisted Living offers residents services to make life a little easier–like housekeeping, medication management, transportation, and emergency response available 24-7. Assisted Living at The Chateau Terraces is designed for individuals who need additional care and assistance with activities of daily living. Residents of Assisted Living enjoy a wide variety of community amenities including: restaurant style dining, access to a beautiful landscaped courtyard, and daily events and activities.
THE RIGHT CHOICE FOR YOU
As a resident of a continuing care retirement community, you have the benefit of knowledgeable staff at every level of care. Should you start life in Independent Living at The Chateau and need Assisted Living in the future, our staff is available to help navigate you through that transition. Our staff is also available to help you determine which level of living best suits your or your loved one’s current needs.
Independent living benefits those retirees who want to have their own space and the power to run their home, but who want to be a part of community, or live worry-free from the less glamorous parts of homeownership–like housekeeping, lawn care, or shoveling snow.
Assisted living is intended for older adults who need help on a day-to-day basis, with things like cooking, cleaning, bathing, or remembering to take their medication. If you’ve found that yourself or a loved one is no longer able to safely or effectively live alone, assisted living is a wonderful solution. It’s the independence of your own space with the peace of mind knowing that someone is always just around the corner if you should ever need help.
Making the right decision for your needs is one that you shouldn’t make alone. Talk it over with your family, your doctor, or one of our staff members at The Chateau. For a tour of each facility, call today!
