Meeting Senior Wellness Needs Now and in the FutureMarch 25, 2019
Injuries or physical changes shouldn’t mean the end of a happy retirement.
Shirley Friedlander was concerned about a close friend’s health issues. Both women were living in the same 55+ community, but it didn’t offer onsite healthcare or rehabilitation to its residents.
She explained, “I knew that she needed more than our retirement community offered, so I helped her look for one that offered healthcare services.” After doing some research, Shirley called the Director of Sales at Monroe Village, a continuing care retirement community (CCRC) in nearby in Monroe, New Jersey, to book an appointment for them to visit.
To Shirley’s surprise, she was smitten with Monroe Village and impressed by the expanded care our senior living community’s rehabilitation & healthcare facility, Village Point, could provide, if needed. “When we walked in the front door, I blurted, ‘I have come home!’ I wasn’t even the one looking to move, but I felt immediately that this was the place for me.”
Our Continuum of Care Ensures All Life Phases Are Covered, if Necessary
Many seniors choose a community based on location, amenities and the lifestyle offered, but as Shirley learned, not all communities provide services for each continuum of care stage. The benefit of a CCRC is that residents can rest easy knowing that should their health needs ever change, all levels can be supported onsite through different living options, including:
- Independent Living. Ideal for seniors who don’t need assistance with daily activities like bathing or dressing but want a maintenance-free lifestyle that allows them to spend more time enjoying their retirement.
- Assisted Living. For those who are experiencing a decline in overall health, assisted living can provide health services and assistance with daily self-care, such as dressing and grooming, cooking, and medication management.
- Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation. Designed for seniors who have chronic conditions that require constant monitoring, skilled nursing facilities like Village Point at Monroe Village can be the perfect fit. Village Point also provides rehabilitation services such as physical, occupational and speech therapy for patients recovering from illness, injury or surgery.
- Memory Care. For individuals living with Alzheimer’s or other forms of dementia, memory care services provide 24-hour support and structured activities to provide the best quality of life.
Renew, Enhance, Live at Monroe Village
According to our residents, Monroe Village is the best option for retirement living in central New Jersey. Our CCRC offers housekeeping, restaurant-style dining and worry-free maintenance, all included in a generous package of services and amenities.
At a CCRC, residents’ future healthcare needs are met seamlessly through the personal care, assisted living, skilled nursing, and rehabilitation services available onsite. Our senior living community also offers an additional benefit by promising lifelong care through its Lifecare option, which guarantees residents the care they need at predictable monthly payments – for as long as they need – at rates similar to those paid at an independent living facility.
