Assisted Living at Commonwealth Senior Living

Are you considering assisted living but feeling overwhelmed and uncertain of what it entails? If so, youre not alone. Many seniors and their families have the same questions and concerns about moving to an assisted living community. At Commonwealth Senior Living, we understand the importance of making this transition as smooth as possible. With over 20 years of senior living expertise, we are proud of our exceptional ability to support families through this journey.

What is Assisted Living*?

Assisted Living is an option designed for seniors who require assistance with daily tasks, but still want an active and social lifestyle. Personalized care options, ranging from help with dressing and bathing to medication management are available in our communities. Assisted Living residents are also highly encouraged to participate in a variety of engaging programs and events organized in the community.

Only around 1% of the U.S. population understands senior living and the options available. Those who do likely know from firsthand experience with a senior living community or from working in the healthcare industry. Outside of that 1%, when individuals hear the term "assisted living," they may lump all the options into the same category based on their experience. Because of this, Assisted Living communities are often mistaken for skilled nursing facilities. Most senior living communities, like Commonwealth, offer Independent Living, Assisted Living, and Memory Care so residents can reduce the number of moves they need to make, even if their needs change in the future.

Choosing the Right assisted living checklist

Determining the Right Level of Care

Assisted Living at Commonwealth Senior Living gives residents an ideal balance of personalized support while encouraging independence. This means we go above and beyond to discover the best personalized care options before move-in day. Our communities' Resident Care Directors conduct comprehensive care assessments to determine the appropriate level of care needed. These assessments consider factors such as medical needs, mobility limitations, and personal preferences and are performed periodically to ensure our residents remain safe. Our goal is to provide residents with all the support they need, while also helping them maintain their independence.

If you and your family are thinking about senior living, it can be difficult to decide what will be the best fit. We've partnered with the decision-making experts at Roobrik to provide families with an anonymous online assessment. The assessment is 23 questions and advises families to think through their situation and what challenges their loved one may be experiencing.
