WHERE YOU FEEL COMFORTABLE
Levels of care

INDEPENDENT LIVING

Independent living provides residents with convenient access to dining, activities, entertainment, outings and more. Residents enjoy the independent, maintenance-free lifestyle they want. Independent living is optimal for active seniors, who take comfort in knowing they have access to assistance when needed.

Our independent living program offers a variety of services, including: daily meals in a restaurant-style setting, housekeeping, engaging activities, entertaining events and chauffeured transportation – just to name a few.

If the need arises, our on-site, health care provider can provide a la carte services and custom care plans, which can include medication reminders, physical therapy and assistance with Activities of Daily Living (ADL).*

*At select communities, services are made available by an independent, third-party home care company.

A Day in the Life of an Independent Living Resident

My name is Mary and I am proud to call American House my home!

Today, like most mornings, my day started with a long morning walk with the “Ladies Walking Club”. I love beginning my day with exercise and chatting with all of my friends.  After we’re done, we always head to the local café to relax, have a coffee and eat a light breakfast.

After we enjoy our meal, I head back to my apartment to get ready for the day. More often than not, I make it just in time to join in on yoga. Today, however, we have the Exotic Zoo paying us a visit here at the community, so I’ll be attending that instead. I am excited to see all of the different animals!

Later on I’ll head up to my room and get myself ready for dinner. I enjoy getting dressed up for an evening meal.  I always wear a piece from my extensive earring collection, and the girls love to comment on them.

Tomorrow I will head into town to go shopping. The ladies and I love to shop, and every Thursday we head to the local shops.

 

RESPITE CARE

American House offers short- or long-term respite care services when you need it most.

When a primary caregiver is unavailable to provide care, a respite stay allows you and your family to have a peace of mind, knowing that help is always close at hand. Respite stays also allow you the opportunity to meet new friends, engage in fun activities and entertaining events.

Respite care is also often used for recovery after surgery or after a discharge from the hospital. By offering assistance with Activities of Daily Living, physical therapy, meals, housekeeping and more, you are able to focus on the most important issue: restoring your health. *

Regardless of the reason for your stay, we can provide the services you need and the resort-style amenities that you’ll enjoy.

* Services are made available by an independent, third-party home care company at select communities.
