We at Avendelle support the model of aging in place within our homes. Allowing seniors to age in place refers to the concept of meeting each person where he or she is. We understand that senior care, particularly memory care, is not a one-size-fits-all approach and that needs will evolve over time. Our dedicated staff is trained to look for signs and symptoms of changing needs with dementia residents. We’re prepared to tailor care to the individual, as well as adjust care as seniors transition. We’ll walk you and your family member through each phase of care with grace and dignity. Our ultimate goal is always to provide every resident with the care he or she deserves, all the while engaging seniors’ loved ones and doctors as part of the care team. Avendelle Assisted Living is devoted to being a memory care facility you can trust, and beyond that, a reliable collaborator in the health and happiness of your loved one.
It’s no secret that most adults would prefer to age in place. In fact, 90 percent of adults over the age of 65 report that they would prefer to stay in their current residence as they age. When staying in a lifelong or family home is no longer an option, the best alternative is to ensure that, after this one move, the senior won’t need to relocate again. This is why choosing the right assisted living home for your loved one is so important.
Many seniors express a desire to stay in their current homes despite a decreasing quality of life. For some seniors, changes arise so gradually that they go unnoticed. For others, sacrificing comfort seems a worthwhile compromise in exchange for staying in a beloved home. Unfortunately, the changes of aging can cause risks to accumulate, increasing the likelihood of a fall or accident. The real purpose of aging in place is not just staying put; it’s ensuring that an individual’s health, well-being, and quality of life either remain the same or increase over time. It requires that resources and services will evolve as a person ages so that a high standard of living is maintained.
Avendelle’s small assisted living homes are designed to empower seniors to age in place. The houses themselves are designed to meet the evolving needs of seniors as they age. Every aspect of life in our residences is considered, and if something in the home can be made safer or easier to use, we’ll make it so. Just as our residences change, so too does our care. The skills and specializations offered by our caregivers can be adjusted to meet the evolving needs of our residents at any time. We aim to create places where seniors can feel at home, live where they choose, consistently access the resources they need, and enjoy a spectacular quality of life.
A fundamental difference at Avendelle is our all-inclusive pricing. While other assisted living facilities tack on fees whenever a resident has an unexpected need, we strive to keep billing fair and predictable. Changing bodies and capabilities are a constant reality for providers of senior care, so it’s only right that we account for unpredictability in our pricing. The results are fewer surprises for everyone and lower costs over time. Another differentiator is our flexibility. While your loved one likely intends to stay in one place, there could be nothing worse than moving into an assisted living facility, only to discover you’ve chosen the wrong one! At Avendelle, there’s no big commitment. If you find that our residence isn’t right for your loved one, they’re in no way bound to stay2.
Everyone past or approaching retirement age should have an aging-in-place plan. The National Aging in Place Council offers an array of tools to help you do just that. Avendelle makes aging-in-place planning easy by offering an all-in-one solution. We’ve considered the foreseeable variables, and when a new resident joins one of our homes, we tweak the residence to meet his or her needs. If you’ve been searching for a senior care home that meets all your family’s ongoing needs, we encourage you to explore our all-inclusive residences.
