Assisted living is a special combination of housing, personalized support services and health care designed to respond to the individual needs of those who need help with activities of daily living, but do not need the specialized care of a nursing home. Assisted living care promotes independence and dignity for each resident and encourages the involvement of the resident’s family, neighbors and friends; staff is available to meet scheduled and unscheduled needs.
Choosing a Level of Care
Levels of Care
Higher Degree of Assistance (Level 2)
This level of care provides additional services that may be needed to have a resident maintain a higher degree of independence. This provides a resident with all the benefits of general care in level 1 plus personalized assistance with dressing, personal hygiene, grooming and assistance with showers scheduled weekly.
Progressive Care (Level 3)
This allows our residents to transition from the assisted living level of care into an area with a higher staff-to-resident ratio. Now residents can stay within their Sommerset Neighborhood longer as an alternative to prematurely transferring to a nursing home simply due to the requirement of more one-on-one assistance as health needs increase. The result is a higher quality of life for a longer period of time and reduced stress for residents and families.
Memory Care (Level 4)
At Sommerset Memory Care Neighborhood, your loved one will still be in a home-like setting. They’ll be safe and secure where their needs will be met. The Memory Care has a secured lovely outdoor area, allowing residents the opportunity to wander freely, inside and out, enjoying the simple pleasures of life without jeopardizing their safety. Floor plans offer cues that help residents navigate independently, so residents feel less confused as they dine and socialize with others.
I would like to live to be 100 years old here at Sommerset. They remind me to pull my call cord for everything and anything.
