Independent Living vs. Assisted Living Services

It can be difficult when you come to the realization that either you or a loved one needs professional care. And for some of us, the realization comes at a much later time than others. But the thing is, not everyone’s needs are the same. So when it comes to your needs, do you know what services are best for you? At The Windsor Senior Living Community, we offer independent living and assisted living services. Let’s deep dive into what each means and what we can do for you.

Independent Living vs. Assisted Living Services | The Windsor

When To Choose Independent Living

Independent Living is a common choice for our residents who require very little assistance. These individuals are typically still able-bodied and do certain tasks such as driving for themselves. Despite this, that does not mean that we do not provide services for independent living residents. Those who choose independent living at The Windsor can look forward to two meals a day each day, light housekeeping, activities, outings, and more!

Is Assisted Living Right For Your Family?

When it comes to living at The Windsor, assisted living services are for those who require a little extra care than our independent living residents. But what exactly does that entail? When it comes to those in our Assisted Living Program, we have the choice of full assisted living packages or choices from our A La Carte menu. 

In our Assisted Living package, residents can look for words to services such as:

  • Three daily meals
  • Medication assistance
  • Daily AM and PM dressing
  • Housekeeping
  • Laundry services

And these are just a few examples of what you can look forward to. While these simple tasks may not feel like much to us as able-bodied individuals, they can mean a world of difference to those who need a little bit extra help during their daily routine.

Our A La Carte amenities, on the other hand, are for residents who don’t need the full living assistance package. And we can switch services on a monthly basis to assist residents as they need. That means that you can choose between certain services to save yourself some money and time. Some services included in our menu are ambulation assistance, blood pressure checks, bathing and dressing assistance, and much more. If you want to know more about this menu or what we can offer future residents, get in contact with us.

However, there are limits to what we can help with. It’s important to note that not every living facility can or will cater to every need. So if your loved one needs extreme care, it helps to look for the right facility. If you aren’t sure where to look, feel free to ask one of our own professionals. We’re more than happy to provide you with suggestions of other nearby facilities that can help.
