FAQ Category: Building On Tradition

Why these two areas?

To be a true ‘Continuing Care Community,’ it is important to have the range of services needed throughout the entire aging process. We have Independent Living, which is just that – for those who can still live on their own but want to downsize and have us ‘do the work for me.’ We have full nursing care, which requires the ultimate care along the spectrum of needs. What we DON’T have is the step in between – Assisted Living. You still have some semblance of independence, but we will do some of the things you’re unable to do, such as cooking, keeping meds organized, your laundry or perhaps some of the housekeeping.

Memory Care (the CCDI component) is becoming more and more necessary in long-term care, as an increasing number of persons are being diagnosed with a dementing illness. Simply put, we want to provide the type of care needed at all levels of the process.

What does the project include?

The primary components of the project involve new construction of a CCDI
(Chronic Confusing Demented Illness) unit, to include 16 private rooms with a
secure outdoor courtyard…and renovation of existing space into 28 Assisted
Living (AL) apartments. Other improvements will include relocation of the
commercial kitchen as well as other services currently offered.
