Aging in place is a fantastic way to avoid dealing with the hassles of moving if seniors’ needs ever change. Imagine living in a community where all your wants and desires live right outside your front door.
Recent retirees and active seniors often get turned off to the idea of moving to Assisted Living communities before their services are required. However, communities like The Grand Senior Living provide senior retirement homes in Louisville, KY that offer the best of both worlds.
What does The Grand Senior Living provide for seniors?
- Independent Living
- Personal Care
- Memory Care
By offering the three primary services older adults require, scrambling to find higher levels of care is not a concern for our residents.
Our resort-style community makes every day feel like a vacation. Independent and personal care residents are never bored or at a loss for activities. Enjoy access to:
- An indoor pool and aquatic exercise
- Art studio
- Fitness room
- Lounge and game room
- Fine dining and casual meal options
- Private outdoor courtyard
- Putting green
In addition to all these amenities, our senior living calendar includes options for every lifestyle. We have multiple social clubs that focus on art, gardening and regular exercise. Throughout the day, residents gather to play games, discuss books and relax with whatever makes them feel comfortable.
Independent living is not a lonely life, far from it. This type of senior living is best for active older adults who want to stay social and make new friends.
The Grand wants to see seniors pursue their passions. To free up time for them to do so, we provide:
- Housekeeping and trash disposal
- Maintenance-free housing
- Laundry and linen service
- Chef-prepared dining
Inside our pet-friendly senior apartments, residents can relax in contemporary living spaces and modern touches that include:
- Cable, Wi-Fi, and phone services
- Stainless steel appliances
- Granite countertops
- Luxurious flooring
- Washer and dryer
- Walk-in closets
- Walk-in shower
- Personal patio
What’s the difference between personal care and Assisted Living?
The Grand Senior Living owns a Personal Care Home license issued by the Office of the Inspector General. Our community is authorized to perform more medical duties than an Assisted Living facility.
Personal care offers more services than Assisted Living but is not as in-depth as a nursing home. Personal care is also more likely to be covered by long-term care insurance.
Nursing oversight and medication management are the most significant differences between the two. Life in a senior living community with a higher level of care offers comfort and security to older adults’ lives.
Personal care home services include:
- 24-hour response
- Nurse oversight
- Individualized care plans
- Wellness training
- Medication management
- Personalized activity of daily living assistance with bathing, dressing, grooming, and more
- Scheduled transportation to and from appointments
Studio and one-bedroom options are available to residents who choose personal care homes. These bright spaces can be decorated with the comforts of home and are easily accessible for multiple levels of mobility.
What is Memory Care?
The Cottage at The Grand is where seniors living with dementia experience a comforting close-knit community supported by specialized caregivers. Our Alzheimer’s and dementia care specialists understand the unique needs of these residents and provide a calming environment.
Memory care in The Cottage utilizes evidence-based activities that promote:
- Life skills
- Anxiety reduction
- Relationship building
- Sensory engagement
- Dementia-friendly exercise
Our staff per resident ratio is high to honor the lives of loved ones living with a type of dementia. We focus on individualized care to provide residents with relief and a sense of belonging.
Transitioning to Memory Care is available for current residents in other levels of care. Our community is also available to relieve family members who provide care for loved ones.
Residents with dementia live independent lives at their pace in private and companion suites. These seniors are encouraged to join the community in the family-like living room or courtyard. This secure environment is very open and easy to navigate.
