A couple with two sets of needs poses a challenge.
Fortunately, our personal care options at Diakon Senior Living provide a path forward. Understanding the options is important when deciding the best fit for you and your spouse:
Personal care: personal care is a solution for seniors who need support with the activities of daily living.
When your spouse needs more assistance than you can provide, a senior living community with personal care services can provide a safe, healthy care option for both of you. A personal care plan for residents includes assistance with activities of daily living, such as medication management and support with bathing, dressing and toileting.
The perfect balance of care, support, engagement, socialization and wellness can be found in Diakon’s personal care communities for those who would like to live independently but need assistance with the activities of daily living.
Personal care residents will always find something to enjoy in Diakon Senior Living. In addition to exercise classes and wellness programs, we organize on-campus educational events and off-campus excursions to help residents stay active and sharp.
CCRC: Diakon offers a Continuing Care Retirement Community (or CCRC). CCRC’s offer independent living and a full continuum of care, including personal care, memory care and skilled nursing.
This option allows you to remain in the community and transition into care without relocating to another provider. For couples, one spouse can make this transition and receive care in familiar surroundings from people they already know and trust. Couples stay near each other, often as close as walking down a hallway, avoiding difficult moves across town.
Couples living at CCRCs often find that their sense of togetherness is strengthened, even when they live in different levels of care. The burdens of care are relinquished to the professionals, allowing couples to focus on their relationships and enjoy the little moments! You can participate in activities and programs that will enrich your life while embracing the support of friends and neighbors.
We also provide wellness services and innovative care to help residents thrive at Diakon personal care communities. The goal is to help residents maintain as much independence as possible and improve their quality of life.
Every Diakon community features a wide-ranging array of amenities and supportive services. Three delicious chef-prepared meals are served restaurant-style daily, and residents enjoy fulfilling programs and events. They occupy well-appointed, private residences that are sized for single adults or couples and enjoy comfortable living areas for casual conversation.
Couples find comfort in knowing they can continue to receive appropriate health-care services on the Diakon Senior Living campus they call home.
