The time to start researching care for our elderly, experts recommend, is before you need one. In part because you don’t want to be caught off guard in the event of an unexpected health issue that forces you to make a quick decision without the opportunity to make an informed choice. SRMC provides several levels of care for those seniors that require an increased level of medical care and assistance. From our Assisted Living at Sloan Estates that offers some assistance to residents in their activities of daily living. This is a great option for seniors who can still take care of themselves most of the time but could use some help with things like:
Residents have individual apartments and have access to common areas like dining rooms, community rooms, daily meals for those who don’t want to cook, 24-hour security, and opportunities for social and recreational events within the facility. The SRMC Assisted Living facility does not offer and cannot provide more intensive medical or daily living care, however.
For elders who need a higher level of care, the next option available that provides a higher level of care is the SRMC Extended Care (also called a nursing home or long-term care), a better option for those with more critical limitations.
