Is This the Right Fit for Me?
Finding the right senior living facility can be confusing. Many families start their search because a loved one has new needs that can’t be adequately addressed at home. Our sales directors work hard to make a stressful process a little easier. We’ve created a resources page to help you compare different living options, but here are a few things to know about Providence Place and the level of care we provide.
- We offer our residents a degree of independence but are not the same as an active 55+ community. Most of our residents have some personal care needs.
- Our staff does not offer skilled nursing care like a nursing home. However, we can attend to many basic needs like help with bathing, dressing, and medication management.
- One of the unique features of our community is the dual stage memory care program. We help our residents with dementia or Alzheimer’s live as independently and safely as possible.
