Where Can I Find a Community That Offers Assisted Living and Memory Care?
As you consider your or your loved one’s future, it’s important to realize there’s much to look forward to. Sometimes a primary residence isn’t capable of meeting future needs. If health concerns like Alzheimer’s and dementia are a factor, finding a community with both Assisted Living and Memory Care becomes a priority.
When looking for Lakeside assisted living and memory care, Solterra Lakeside offers both. We offer a lifestyle that maximizes the quality of life and improves overall health and well-being for all our residents. When it comes to aging in place, we offer a community of caring people ready to support at every level of care at an affordable price.
Aging in Place
Almost everyone wants to age in place at their primary residence. After all, it’s what everyone has worked hard for. But changes in neighborhoods, health concerns, and even needing home repairs and modifications can change the plan to stay.
Aging in place doesn’t have to be only in your home. In fact, aging in place is actually defined as being in your home or chosen community. Assessing their amenities and resources is helpful when it comes to finding a community that serves you or your loved one’s needs.
Here at Solterra Lakeside, we offer Assisted Living and Memory Care. We give residents the quality of life they deserve at affordable prices. We empower our residents to live well with our services and amenities, keeping them safe and secure with 24-hour monitoring and medically-trained staff.
Solterra Communities are about living well. It’s finding each person’s story and getting to know them so they can enjoy their favorite activities, relax in our beautiful environment or explore new adventures. Our Assisted Living Community is designed to keep our residents active and healthy and provide a little support when it’s needed and asked for.
We encourage our residents to enjoy our programs designed to keep them mentally sharp, and physically and socially active. Residents can play games in our billiard/game room, take a fitness class, or pamper at the on-site beauty salon or barber shop. Enjoy movie nights or learn something new with guest lecturers in the media room. Music and art experiences, even curling up in a quiet corner in our library, there’s a choice in how to enrich your days. Our discreet and compassionate staff offers support and reassuring reminders for daily activities.
The White Mountains paint a beautiful backdrop, with nearby shopping, hiking trails, and dining options. Daily excursions and transportation to town for events allow residents to explore. Solterra is located just three minutes from Summit Healthcare Regional Medical Center, with numerous dentists and other health practitioners in the nearby neighborhood.
Living well is eating well; our culinary plans are built on this promise. Our restaurant dining ensures service with a smile and a chance for lively conversations. Chef-prepared meals using locally sourced items create a rotating menu in addition to our “always available” selection. Individual dietary concerns and tastes are always taken into consideration. Our chef might even make your favorite family recipe.
Our Mindful Scoop newsletter and monthly in-person seminars help educate and empower residents in their choices. A monthly chat with our Director of Dining Services allows residents to share their opinions. When our residents need some extra care and can’t leave their apartments, we can ensure healthy meals are delivered.
Speaking of residences, we offer a variety of apartment floor plans from studios, one-bedroom/one-bath, and two-bedroom/one-bath, ready for a personalized touch. Our spacious, pet-friendly apartments are tastefully designed, but there’s always room for personal belongings and treasured furnishings to truly make it a home.
We help our residents live independently with a bit of assistance from us. The help our staff offers might be simple, like helping with the morning routine like bathing and dressing. For all of our residents, housekeeping and laundry services come standard. Our thoughtful and trained staff takes care of any bathing/grooming assistance, medication monitoring, and any transfer assistance needed. Secured community and garden courtyards keep you or your loved one safe and stress-free.
There comes a time when a shift is needed in care, so finding a lakeside assisted living and memory care in the same community is essential. Here at Solterra Lakeside, we aim to make this shift as stress-free as possible. The care shifts to a highly skilled care team that designs a customized care plan based on individual needs. Extra security with staff and a secure space still allows residents as much freedom as possible while staying safe.
Residents live in private one-bedroom/one-bath apartments specially decorated for a calm, stress-free experience. We encourage residents to add personal furnishings and belongings but keep things simple to avoid tripping hazards.
Studies have shown that creating a set routine in a safe and secure environment effectively reduces stress in people experiencing Alzheimer’s or dementia. Keeping the mind, body, and senses active helps people live well and enjoy each day to the fullest. Staying connected socially in the community is also extremely helpful.
Activities are incorporated based on an individual’s preferences and designed to stimulate cognitive abilities. Enriching activities like color therapy, crafts classes, health and fitness classes, and music therapy are incorporated when appropriate. Weekly happy hours with entertainment and spiritual practices for various denominations give our residents social and spiritual health and well-being.
Solterra’s dining services adjust to those extra challenges that our residents in Memory Care are experiencing. Creating healthy, delicious meals with easy feeding and digestion in mind is one of the ways we help our residents. On-site caring and understanding staff will also assist anyone’s needs. Family members are always welcome to join us at meal times too!
We invite you to visit our thriving community at Lakeside for a tour to experience the possibilities of the Solterra lifestyle.
