“As a Life Plan Community, Kingswood offers a continuum of care right on campus,” says Sergio del Pino, Executive Director at Kingswood. “What many people don’t realize is that we welcome direct admission to Assisted Living and Memory Support services. One need not already be a resident in our Independent Living to access those levels of care.”
Assisted Living: Just the Right Amount of Support and a Whole Lot of Lifestyle
Assisted Living at Kingswood delivers more than the support that’s needed; it offers opportunities that people just don’t have living at home.
“Our Assisted Living services go beyond providing the support a resident may need,” says Karlene Witt, Kingswood’s Assisted Living & Memory Support Manager. “With our on-site amenities, programs and activities, it opens up a whole new world to our residents.”
This is a place to live well and live fully. Assisted Living residents at Kingswood enjoy the comfort of private apartments, delicious dining, a full calendar of activities and social events, fitness programs, access to all community amenities and a wellness-focused lifestyle.
“One of the biggest misconceptions is that moving to an Assisted Living community takes away a person’s independence,” says Karlene. “The truth is it helps residents get more out of every day.” By delivering the personalized assistance an individual needs – and helping them with the tasks they have difficulty with – they are able to pursue things they enjoy.
With Assisted Living, help with the tasks of daily living is available 24/7 – whenever and wherever it may be needed. This can range from bathing, dressing and grooming support to medication management, mobility assistance or shopping assistance.
“Every resident in our care is unique,” says Karlene. “So is the support we deliver. This is not a one-size-fits-all approach. Everyone receives just the right amount of assistance they need to live safely, confidently and happily.”
Memory Support: Dignified Care, Innovation and Connection
If you are caring for a loved one living with Alzheimer’s disease, dementia or another form of memory loss, you know how challenging the disease can be. We also know how difficult it can be for a family caregiver to keep up as the disease progresses. “No matter how dedicated a family caregiver is, someone with memory loss will eventually need 24-hour, around-the-clock care,” says Karlene. “As difficult as it may be, there is no shame in moving a loved one to Memory Support.”
Memory Support at Kingswood is here for your whole family when that time comes. We offer a supportive, secure environment, a personalized approach that meets each individual where they are on their journey, and specialized programs for treating different stages of dementia. Most importantly, we encourage and welcome family involvement.
Residents have private suites with their own bathroom and are encouraged to bring their own decor or furnishings to make them feel at home. A digital memory box outside each suite displays family photos that helps the resident identify their suite. Yoga, music therapy, coffee klatches and other activities bring residents together, promoting wellness, happiness and friendship.
“Our memory support approach is a blend of hands-on care complemented by a number of special programs, including Shirley, a therapeutic robot that looks just like a baby harp seal,” says Karlene. “We also offer an innovative software system called iN2L that helps residents engage in activities they enjoy.”
