What is assisted living?

Assisted living is available at the following Loomis Communities:

Assisted living offers a middle ground between independent living and nursing care. Assisted living is a good choice for you if you do not require the extensive medical care provided in nursing care but are not able to manage living on your own. Staff is available to provide 24-hour comprehensive assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs), such as dressing, grooming, eating, mobility and hygiene. A variety of activities and social events, as well as transportation, cleaning, and laundry services, also are typical features of assisted living. The Loomis Communities provides assisted living as part of a comprehensive continuum of care, while many organizations only provide one level of assistance.

Our assisted living features private apartments that residents furnish with their own personal treasures, providing all the comforts of home. Our studio and one-bedroom apartments provide a place where residents who need a little help with the activities of daily living (ADLs) can truly enjoy life. Caregivers are available to help residents with activities such as dressing, bathing, grooming, and medication management. The intimate residential design of assisted living allows our staff to get to know and understand the needs and desires of residents and their families.
