How do I know which senior living option is best for my loved one?

Every senior has their own unique needs, which is why finding the best senior living option for your loved one can be tough. A good place to start is taking a look at their current needs and daily routine. If they’re still relatively independent but need some extra help with daily tasks, assisted living could be the best option. However, if your loved one needs structured care and has been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or dementia, memory care is worth looking into.

What are the dining services like at Walnut Crossing?

Dining is one of the most important features of a senior living community. At Walnut Crossing we’re proud of our partnership with Duet Hospitality for creating healthy and delicious meals for our residents. The Duet Dining program gives residents the opportunity to enjoy fresh, nutritious and chef-planned meals every day. Plus, our chefs even collaborate with residents to try out family recipes that have been passed down throughout the years.

Assisted Living

What is assisted living?

Assisted living is where trained caregivers help your loved one with daily tasks such as dressing, medication management and bathing so that they can maintain their independence. We believe that just because someone needs a little extra support, doesn’t mean they can’t enjoy a vibrant lifestyle.

What should I look for in an assisted living community?

Since seniors in assisted living are relatively independent, one of the first things you should look for is the amenities and activities available at the community. For example, Walnut Crossing has a wide variety of engaging activities for assisted living residents to enjoy. From spending time in our outdoor garden to attending a cooking class with friends, Walnut Crossing can give your loved one more opportunity for social connections and following their passions.

What do I need to prepare to move my loved one into an assisted living community?

If you’re helping your loved one move into an assisted living community, it’s important that you help them bring some of their belongings with them. You want your loved one to feel at home in the community. So, if you can help them decorate or arrange their senior apartment in a way that reflects their personality, they can feel more at home.

How do I talk to my loved one about assisted living?

Having a conversation about assisted living with your loved one isn’t always easy. It’s important to remind your loved one that assisted living will help maintain their independence. They will be part of a vibrant community where following passions is encouraged. While this can be a challenging conversation, it’s important that you list the benefits of an assisted living community. And don’t forget to listen to what your loved one has to say. Moving to an assisted living community like Walnut Crossing should be a decision you make together.

What if my loved one has experienced falls in the past?

If your loved one has experienced falls in the past, Walnut Crossing can help. Every resident at our senior living community gets their own personalized care plan. We’ll take the time to get to know your loved one and can help them by providing balance and fall prevention activities to reduce their future fall risk.

Memory Care

What is memory care?

Memory care is specialized care for seniors living with Alzheimer’s or dementia. Communities like Walnut Crossing offer secure and engaging environments where a trained staff can help residents make the most out of each day.

How is memory care different from assisted living?

Assisted living is more geared toward seniors who are still relatively independent but need some extra support when it comes to daily tasks such as dressing, bathing and medication management. Assisted living residents have the freedom to pursue their passions. Memory care is a specialized service designed for seniors who are have Alzheimer’s or dementia. Residents in memory care benefit from more structure in each day along with an inviting and secure environment.

What features are included in memory care at Walnut Crossing?

Part of what makes the memory care at Walnut Crossing unique is our specialized Rhythms Dementia program. Rhythms Dementia takes the time to get to know every resident and their natural rhythm. From there, we can recommend engaging activities in our friendly and secure environment. And thanks to our partnership with Duet Hospitality, our senior dining program is designed to create more meaningful moments.

What should I look for in a memory care community?

We know that finding the right memory care community for your loved one can be a challenge. One of the best ways to find a memory care community is to take a tour. Once you’re on a tour you’ll want to look for what kind of activities are provided and how the staff interacts with each resident. When you visit a memory care community look for comfort, care and programming that keeps you loved connected engaged and thriving.
