By law, assisted living facilities are not permitted to provide medical care to residents. When an aging adult’s health begins to decline, the need for medical attention increases and it’s impossible to know how quickly this will happen. Community Village works closely with various contracted medical services that provide accelerated care on-site so that, as a resident experiences this natural decline, they are able to “age in place” at Community Village for as long as is deemed safe for them and for our staff. Our goal is to keep your loved one active, healthy, and content for as long as possible.
How Involved Should A Family Be In Selecting Assisted Living?
Not every aging adult is blessed with family willing to help them through this significant life transition. But then there are people like you who would have it no other way than to help. Bless you! Some families find it works well to share the process with siblings or other family members, while others are left to manage on their own. Whichever is the case for you, we’re here to help!
