When searching for senior living options, many people are not entirely sure what the term “assisted living” means. We will try and clarify. One of the first things to know is assisted living is not just another word for a nursing home. Nor does it offer the same level of care and typically is not as expensive.
So, what is assisted living? Assisted living is designed for seniors who want to retain their independence but require some assistance with daily personal care activities. While not all assisted living communities are the same in terms of the level of care, typically assisted living provides services for activities like bathing and dressing as well as prepared meals.
At assisted living communities such as Santa Fe, New Mexico’s new MorningStar of Santa Fe, we create individualized care plans for each resident after talking with them and their family. Furthermore, during the course of your stay, your care plan will be regularly reviewed to ensure it addresses your needs. Also, regardless of the level of care, all residents receive the assurance of having 24/7 onsite Care Managers who help to ensure their safety and meet their every need.
As a resident of MorningStar, you will get three daily meals that are meticulously prepared largely from scratch by our Executive Chef. Each meal is both nutritional and delicious and we modify recipes to address a number of different dietary restrictions including low sodium or low fat, sugar-free, no sugar, and vegetarian options.
In addition, our assisted living residents will have the opportunity to participate in a range of activities and programs that are designed to promote physical, intellectual and spiritual wellness.
