What is independent living?

Independent living is available at the following Loomis Communities:

When referring to retirement communities, independent living describes a house or apartment home in an age-restricted community setting designed for older adults who are able to manage their homes and daily activities without supervision or medical assistance. Independent living can be offered as an apartment in a stand-alone building, or as part of a larger community with a wide range of services, including access to a continuum of health care should you need those services in the future.

Our independent living apartments, villas, and cottages set the standard for distinctive retirement living. Residents enjoy a maintenance-free lifestyle in a spacious, thoughtfully designed homes. Comfort and peace of mind are the focus of our independent living homes, with features such as a private balcony or patio, lovely views, a well-equipped kitchen, generous closets and storage, and many other amenities.

Assisted Living

Assisted Living


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.

Skilled Nursing & Rehabilitation

What do all these terms mean: home care, skilled nursing care, licensed skilled care, and long-term care?

This is called skilled nursing care. Our communities provide skilled nursing care, which includes post-hospital care, short-term rehabilitation, complex medical care, and long-term care. Oversight is provided by licensed professional nurses, nurse practitioners, and physicians. A comprehensive therapy department is staffed by physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech language pathologists.
