Shenandoah Senior Living Community!
What is a Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC)?
A Continuing Care Retirement Community (CCRC) is an innovative, new kind of senior care community that offers continuity of care so residents can get the level of medical attention and personal assistance they need without moving. The independent living accommodations at Shenandoah Senior Living Community feature bath/shower and kitchenette with a microwave (meals are also provided). This makes the move from home a lot easier for most seniors.
Continuing care means that as seniors needs evolve, we can deliver more care. When help is needed with daily routines and self-care, resident’s transition to our Personal Care program for assisted living. Residents who require a higher level of care than Personal Care offers have skilled nursing care available to them. The CCRC model here at Shenandoah Senior Living Community enables us to care for you or your beloved family member through every stage of need.
Levels of Care at Shenandoah Senior Living Community
Skilled Nursing Care: Skilled nursing care includes 24/7 medical and custodial care. However, skilled nursing focuses on short-term care and rehabilitation. For example, residents needing post-surgery wound care, physical or speech therapy after a stroke, or intravenous medication administration would reside in the CCRC’s skilled nursing care unit.
Long-Term Care: Shenandoah Senior Living Community is a warm and welcoming place for our treasured elders to live when living alone isn’t practical anymore. Our CCRC (Continuing Care Retirement Community) allows residents to enjoy more independence and privacy when practical, but extra support levels are close at hand when required. We also provide assisted living, 24-hour nursing and on-site doctor visits.
Personal Care: If a senior’s level of care needs increases, assisted living provides 24/7 access to medical and custodial care. While residents are encouraged to be as independent as possible, staff members are available to help with activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing, or medication management. Assisted living may take the form of private or semi-private apartment-style accommodations.
Independent Living: This often is the first step in a resident’s life at their CCRC. Active, healthy older adults enjoy the CCRC amenities and maintenance-free benefits, all while living unassisted in their choice of residence.
