Assistance with activities of daily living.

Enhanced Living removes obstacles that prevent Residents from enjoying the day. Often, this means receiving assistance with care tasks, instrumental activities of daily living (IADLs) and basic activities of daily living (ADLs).

Instrumental activities of daily living include activities that help Residents live independently within their community while improving their quality of life, like cooking, cleaning, laundry and transportation. ADLs typically include dressing, bathing and medication management. Here, we take care of all of this for you or your loved one, ensuring the right support to live as actively as possible.

“You have the benefit of 24-hour staff, people who will do your laundry, cook your meals, provide you assistance with your activities of daily living and a robust activity calendar.” – Kathleen Walker, Program Director

A fulfilling lifestyle.

Residents easily take part in enriching programs and pursue whatever makes them feel fulfilled. This is no small thing – the opportunities our community offers to enjoy oneself are practically endless. And the more engaged a Resident is, the better each day will be.

Scheduled programs are varied enough to satisfy just about any interest, with intellectual activities, social clubs, and opportunities to participate in practically any hobby. With so much going on, Residents are empowered to live a self-directed lifestyle as they receive supportive senior care.

Delicious dining.

Collaborating with local farmers to source the freshest ingredients, our executive chef ensures Residents of our senior living community enjoy a 5-star dining experience on par with the finest restaurants in the area.

“This may sound a little corny, but my favorite part is being able to go see my wife every day…They actually serve her lunch, and my lunch to her room. Then I go back to my room to live the rest of my day.” – Hank V., Resident
