MARRIED COUPLES SUITES
Married couples are welcome, we will do our best to provide you with adjoining rooms, however in the case that this isn’t possible our rooms are big enough for a double. Due to licensing restrictions a married couple would need to pay for two rooms and use the second room as an additional living area.
SINGLE ROOMS? Nine total
We avoid any institutionalized approach. Our unique, warm and attractive home is based on the Household Model. A smaller sized senior care facility where nine individuals can enjoy all that home has to offer, experience daily pleasure and continue to live a vibrant life with the reassurance of 24 hour professional care.
DO ALL ROOMS HAVE A 2 PIECE EN-SUITE? YES
DO ALL ROOMS HAVE A TELEPHONE & CABLE Hookup? Yes
BATHS & SHOWERS? UNRESTRICTED.
Our residents are not limited on how many showers they may have. Showers or baths are given when needed or desired.
FOOD & SNACKS?
Meals can be enjoyed either at the dining table or in the individuals' room. In fine weather some residents choose to eat meals on the patio. We do our best to accommodate all likes and dislikes and operate a four week rolling menu. Those residents who require assistance with eating can be assured that they will receive all the assistance and time that they need at meal times. We have snacks and drinks available at all times of the day, at a residents request.
MAY I DRINK ALCOHOL?
Yes. We keep our residents alcohol in our medication room fridge. We do require a Doctor’s letter stating that it is safe for you to be provided with alcohol, to avoid any medical complications. Alcohol is not included in the monthly fee.
We encourage you to be active in the residents committee.
High staff-to-client ratio. Staff work short shifts and they are never ‘burnt out.’ We do not operate under-staffed.
Our residents are not required to adhere to a care plan for scheduled bathroom visits. They are supported when needed or requested.

Pets are welcome to visit.
DO I NEED TO MOVE TO A DIFFERENT FACILITY IF I BECOME ILL?
