Description of The Whitcomb Senior Living Community in SAINT JOSEPH, MI

Built In 1967 , Number of Beds : 260

For in-home care, Whitcomb Tower Retirement has a skilled and caring staff who are ready to assist for seniors in their own homes. Senior care professionals assist with a variety of non-medical needs, including medication reminders, running errands, meal preparation, and grooming assistance. This facility also provides assisted living, independent living and in-home care. Assisted living is a good solution for seniors who require a little help but desire to preserve their self-reliance. Assisted living is advantageous for seniors. Studies reveal that living near peers and participating in social activities leads to a happier life. Assisted living offers senior-friendly residences and a warm staff. Communities have additional services that include 24-hour supervision and security, emergency response systems, access to licensed nursing care, chef-prepared meals, and assistance with grooming, dressing, and bathing. Laundry, housekeeping, social programs, and local transportation are typically provided as well. When you are autonomous but want to be in the company of your peers, choose indepedent living and enjoy amenities and services geared towards seniors. Intended for both individuals and couples, these senior communities are also known as senior apartments, retirement villages, and communities for 55 and older. Residents stay in private apartments or individual homes with an abundance of community amenities, services, and programs tailored specifically for seniors. Your personal belongings, such as furniture and favorite mementos, can move to your new home with you. With maintenance, groundskeeping, and housekeeping taken care of, seniors can focus on goals and passions instead of the daily demands of home ownership. Because independent living communities are intended for older adults who need little or no assistance, most do not offer medical care or supervision. Community services and amenities usually include fitness clubs, dining facilities, swimming pools, golf courses, hiking trails, social events, and more. Some seniors, as they age and begin to need assistance, simply do not wish to leave the place they’ve called home for many years. Sometimes they bought their dream home upon retirement. Sometimes it is the house where they raised their children and watched their families grow up. For them, the walls and floors resonate with memories. A caring, in-home staff understands this and is dedicated to making seniors as comfortable and as satisfied as they can possibly be. Services are available twenty-four-hours a day, seven days a week. Home care consists of various medical and non-medical support services. When you are ready for assistance, medical and non-medical professionals are ready to help with a wide range of services. Within assisted living communities, you'll find help as you need it, with the goal of supplying the aid required to stay as self-sufficient as possible. When seniors are self-sufficient but want to be in the company of peers, choose indepedent living and enjoy a variety of amenities and services. In-home care is there for seniors when they need it. Care professionals will bring their expertise and experience to your home. This choice is perfect for those who want to stay in their homes but who need some help with the daily activities of living. These services, available 24 hours a day, every day, are paid for by the individual or through public and private funding sources, such as Medicare and/or Medicaid. For help on finding the perfect senior living option for you, call today.
