How do I handle a loved one moving into Assisted Living?Current residents of assisted living homes advise friends and family to continue to play an active role in your friend or loved one's life. Be involved in making the decision, the move, and everyday life at their new home. Meet and get to know their new friends and check out their favorite day to day activities. Be sure to remain positive and supportive as your loved one may feel uneasy about their new home at Bethany Village at first. As they become more and more assimilated, they will for sure have lots to tell you - here at Bethany Village, we encourage friends and family to call and visit often. Everyone is welcome!
It's common for family members to experience uneasy feelings just like the new resident themselves. This is totally normal and to be expected. As time passes you will both adjust and become more comfortable.
What makes active assisted living facilities different?Well, the biggest difference between active assisted living facilities and other facilities such as nursing homes is that all of the residents are... well, active! Everyone is having fun, making new friends and enjoying themselves. Many people have a very negative idea of what senior citizen and assisted living homes are like. But it would be a huge mistake to assume that all elder care facilities are the same. And what makes Bethany Village different is the Activities Department schedules a wide variety of activities including Bingo, cards, movies, shopping trips, lunch outings and on campus Pastoral Care and Worship services. Plus many more!
What is the difference between The Courtyards Assisted Living and The Manor Skilled Nursing home?Assisted living facilities give seniors who need a little help, but overall can care for themselves, a very attractive alternative to moving into a nursing home.
Assisted living is set up to cater to the needs of individuals who need assistance with general daily activities such as housekeeping, cooking, and medication administration rather than individuals who need around the clock 24-hour nursing care. Assisted living facilities also pay greater attention to personal privacy. This is usually a concern of most residents at Bethany Village you will be given all the privacy you need and want.
Individuals in assisted living are typically more independent and capable. They are able to take part and enjoy daily activities, usually with no assistance at all. The Manor will provide residents with a great deal more help, care, and attention.
Can I bring my car?Yes. There is ample parking for residents. Bethany Village also offers scheduled transportation 7 days per week for residents who do not drive or do not want to take their car out for local trips.
