About Leisure Care's Residents

Leisure Care's tagline is "Retire like you mean it." Seniors who come to live at Leisure Care learn very quickly that retirement doesn't mean sitting around in rocking chairs-- unless, of course, that's exactly what they want to do. But for those seniors who want to remain active and on the go, there are plenty of opportunities to keep them fit, healthy, and happy. At Leisure Care, the experienced staff is prepared to meet the needs of a variety of seniors, from the most active to those who need some tender loving assistance during their retirement years.

One of the many reasons Leisure Care is such a hit with the retirement crowd is that its communities feel less like retirement homes and more like resort communities. Who wouldn't want to feel like they are on an extended vacation? It's exactly how Leisure Care residents feel each and every day, thanks to a staff that caters to their specific needs and lifestyle choices.

Senior Living Options

Want more choices for living out your golden years? Leisure Care has them -- 35 programs of options, to be exact-- so even the most discriminating of seniors will find something that suits them well here.

For those seniors who want to give up the responsibilities of owning a home, but have no intention of trading in their freedom or lifestyle, then independent living at Leisure Care is a great choice. In fact, life here might be busier than ever, thanks to the seemingly endless options in travel, dining, social opportunities, relaxation -- the list goes on and on. A variety of independent living apartments allow seniors to simply close the door behind them and go off on their active day.

For those residents who need just a little help during their daily lives, Leisure Care's assisted living option steps in like a faithful friend. Options are very flexible, so that seniors can get the help they need when they need it. Should those needs change, the assisted living options can be changed, too. From medication management to coordinating physician care to transporting you to the beauty salon or barber, your needs will certainly be met by the caring staff at Leisure Care.

Leisure Care for People with Dementia

Memory patients need an extra-special kind of care, and they receive it at Leisure Care. A caring and professional staff works closely with family, physicians, and other caregivers to carve out a personalized approach to caring for residents diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or other forms of dementia.

Leisure Care's memory care program is known as the Best Friends Approach(tm), which is a strategy that was originally developed by Virginia Bell and David Troxel. Caregivers step in to a memory care resident's life in very much the same way as an empathetic best friend would in order to ensure that each and every senior remains safe and feels valued.

At Leisure Care, the staff views memory care as a combined approach, ensuring that the individual's physical, emotional, social, cultural, and spiritual needs are met on a continual basis. Families and friends of memory care residents can be secure in knowing that their loved ones are receiving optimal care - and they are encouraged to visit often and remain active in the lives of their loved ones.

It's not easy to deal with transitioning a family member to an assisted living community, but the memory care staff at Leisure Care certainly works hard to make it less stressful by creating a nurturing community in which memory care residents can maintain their dignity and quality of life.

A Caring and Professional Staff

How does Leisure Care ensure that its residents remain healthy and happy? By hiring caregivers who are committed to preserving the highest quality of life for seniors. Leisure Care is a fun- loving community, and the staff works hard to ensure that their residents' golden years stay extra shiny.

The caregivers at Leisure Care not only know how to take care of seniors, but they also know how to take care of families, too. The transition to senior living is not always an easy one, so the professionals are experienced in helping new residents and their families relax into a new way of life. To help make the transition to assisted living a bit easier, families, friends, and caregivers are encouraged to visit often to stay involved with the daily lives of their loved ones residing at Leisure Care.

Services and Amenities

Is this a resort or a senior community? It's very hard to tell when you first arrive at Leisure Care, and that's done on purpose. That's because the staff works hard to pull out all the stops for its residents. One way that Leisure Care does this is through the concierge service. Residents will feel like they are at a five-star hotel instead of a retirement community, thanks to personalized service that is ready to pamper them on any given day -- from making reservations for salon services to arranging for deliveries to securing tickets for a matinee.

Need something? Just ask. Get used to being in the lap of luxury, seniors. You've earned it.

Staying Active and Healthy

What's the point of retiring if you can't stay active and healthy? That's why Leisure Care does its utmost to keep its seniors on the go with a calendar full of activities -- fitness classes, arts and crafts, social activities, and more -- plus a host of health and wellness services. The result? Happy, healthy, and active seniors who are transforming the very idea of retirement as we (used to) know it.

Dining Like Royalty

At all of Leisure Care's communities, residents can enjoy true restaurant dining experiences for each and every meal. This means that they are seated by a host or hostess and have their order taken by an experienced server (who will relay any food preferences to the kitchen staff). Delicious breakfasts, lunches, dinners, snacks, and desserts are prepared with the freshest of ingredients by a team of expert chefs. Hungry yet?

Pricing Options

Leisure Care offers three different levels of residence options so that seniors can make choices according to their lifestyle and budget. There are three unique brands of independent and assisted living: Leisure Care, Leisure Care Premier, and Signature 180. Leisure Care is the basic program, though nothing is basic in the services and amenities that are available. Leisure Care Premier enhances the options for seniors, and Signature 180 provides the highest level of living to residents.
