Independent Active Senior Living

The awareness of retirement living has risen dramatically in recent years. Many older adults who are still active and healthy don't want to be burdened with all the maintenance and expenses of a house. Instead, they are seeking vibrant and worry-free living environments to enhance their peace of mind. The Laurels Senior Living Community provides a full range of attractive independent living choices for today's seniors.

 

The Laurels is designed for those who want to be a part of an engaging social environment, who have passion for life and live with purpose in life. Our residents can expect value, convenience, comfort and security. Should the need ever arise, care continuums that include Personal Care and Respite / Short-term Care are available.

 


"Active Living for Active Seniors"

For independent living residents, The Laurels offers a wide variety of social, cultural and recreational programs. Book groups, baking classes, theater outings and shopping excursions - these are just a few of the many activities our residents enjoy. We listen to residents' feedback to develop programs that will complement our seniors' current interests as well as help them discover new ones.

Our approach provides the ideal solution for seniors who need some help with daily activities, such as bathing, dressing and medication reminders. We focus on wellness and keeping residents as independent as possible by providing a tailored plan of assistance. Our residents enjoy beautifully appointed living spaces, delicious meals, engaging social activities, transportation, and personalized assistance and care.

* Personal hygiene and grooming

* Dressing and clothes selection

* Medication management

Respite / Short-term Support

Designed for stays of a few days to several months, our short-term stays are perfect when family members are away on a vacation or business trip or require a short break from caring for the senior in their life. Short-term stays are also an option for seniors needing extra assistance after a hospital visit or during an illness. Many of our permanent residents also begin their lives with us by evaluating the Laurels through Short-term, respite support.
