Finding the Right Living Option for You: Independent, Assisted, and Nursing Care

When considering a senior living community, one of the biggest decisions is choosing which level of care suits your needs, both now and in the future. At Westminster Towers in Orlando, we offer a full continuum of care so you can find the right fit and seamlessly transition levels if needs change. Let’s explore the different living options available in more detail:

Independent Living

Independent living provides the privacy of your own home while freeing you from house maintenance and chores. Our community offers stylish apartment homes ranging from studios to two bedrooms to fit your lifestyle.

Gather in our elegant restaurant-style dining room for chef-prepared meals with friends (no more grocery shopping or meal prep!) or cook for yourself in your full kitchen. Housekeeping service keeps your apartment tidy with no effort on your part.

Stay active in fitness classes, take art lessons, join social clubs, go on community outings to local attractions, and enjoy our heated pool. Our maintenance team handles groundskeeping and home repairs so you can fully engage in activities you cherish instead of yard work. Complimentary transportation provides worry-free access to shopping, dining, and appointments.

While fully independent, you have peace of mind knowing care is available if needs arise. Our assisted living and skilled nursing facilities are conveniently located on the same campus, allowing for a smooth transition if your health needs change. Supportive home care services can be added as needed while you continue living independently. Enjoy your golden years while we tend to the details!

Assisted Living

Assisted living provides daily assistance to make living easier while still honoring independence. Move to this level when activities like cooking nutritious meals, cleaning, and personal hygiene become challenging. Our assisted living suites include kitchenettes, and help is never far away.

Certified nursing aides provide grooming guidance, escort residents to meals and activities, manage medications, assist with mobility and transferring, and provide well-being checks to ensure safety. Transportation to medical appointments provides reliable access to healthcare with no driving required. 

Savor chef-prepared meals in our beautiful dining room or order room service on tired days when you need extra rest. Socialize in our warm, homelike common areas or beautiful courtyards and patios. Licensed nurses oversee clinical needs and our caring staff handles housekeeping in the privacy of your suite. We encourage assisted living residents to be as active as possible while lending just the right amount of help with daily tasks.

Skilled Nursing Care

For those with more intensive physical, medical or rehabilitation needs, our Medicare-certified Health Center provides 24/7 skilled nursing and therapy services. Private and shared rooms with fellow residents make recovery more comfortable. Around-the-clock skilled nurses and CNAs offer excellent clinical and personal care tailored to your needs. Physical, occupational, and speech therapists help you regain abilities through one-on-one therapy.

We focus on short-term nursing stays to restore wellness to transition back home or to assisted living. A daily schedule of activities, meals, and therapies keeps residents engaged. Visits from family and friends are encouraged. Our compassionate staff forms meaningful bonds with residents and families during recovery.

Memory Care Assisted Living

Memory care assisted living offers specialized care in a separate, secure neighborhood for those with Alzheimer’s and dementia. Specially trained staff attends to unique needs through each stage of memory loss. Simple routines, reminders, and cueing lend a hand with grooming, meals, and medication. Building layouts and visual cues support navigation and safety. Engaging sensory activities and social gatherings suited to abilities provide joy. This secure environment eases family concerns.

How you can stay in touch with family and friends after moving to a senior living community

Are you considering a move to a senior living community but worried about how you’ll keep in touch with family and friends? You’re not alone. Many future residents have the same concerns.

Luckily, there are plenty of ways to stay connected and keep in touch with the people you care about. From FaceTime to card nights to private dining parties, residents have plenty of options to stay connected with their loved ones.

In this blog post, we’ll explore some of the best ways to keep in touch with family and friends after moving to a senior living community.

Enjoy a video call to have a virtual visit with family or friends whenever you like

A virtual visit can help maintain ties even when residents and their friends are separated by thousands of miles. Modern technology for video calling like FaceTime makes visiting easier than ever. Video calls allow residents to enjoy a face-to-face conversation with family or friends anywhere in the world, from the comfort of their living room. No expensive travel required!

Residents can use FaceTime or video chat services like Skype, Google Hangouts and Zoom to stay in touch with those who matter most. Grandparents can share stories with grandchildren who live far away or have regular catch-ups with distant relatives. Video calling also makes it possible for to host a virtual event, like a game night or movie watch party.

Enjoy a card or board game night and mix the “old” and “new” friends

With many social connections in their current neighborhoods, the prospect of moving to a senior living community can be daunting for many older adults. Fortunately, there are plenty of in-person social opportunities at senior living communities — some of them more informal than others.
Many senior living communities have groups of residents who enjoy a night of card games or board games. Play poker, Clue, Settlers of Catan or whatever you prefer, and enjoy having social opportunities and good friends at your fingertips.

These social events offer a reason for residents to invite their friends and family members over for a night of fun and laughter. It also provides an informal setting for guests to meet other residents and engage in meaningful conversations.

For older adults who want to make sure they stay connected to their friends, one surefire way to make things more fun is to invite their “old” friends to meet the “new” at a game night. It can make for a memorable evening filled with laughter and good company — all while bonding deeper relationships with fellow residents at the same time.

Host a dinner party and let someone else do all the work

Dining is an important part of life at a senior living community. But a special event may call for having a few friends over for dinner, and who wants to do all the cooking and dishes?

That’s why many senior living communities offer residents a variety of catered dining options, to invite guests over for a special dinner party. A special menu developed with the Dining department makes it simple and convenient to plan an event. Enjoy a luxurious meal without lifting a finger!

Inviting friends and family over to experience their community is also great to help those who may be considering making the move themselves. Guests get an up-close look at the lifestyle offered at their friend’s new home. Private dining options allow potential new residents to get an idea of what life would be like for them.

From poker nights to private dinners, there are plenty of ways for residents of senior living communities to keep in touch with family and friends.
