When selecting a senior living residence for a loved one, it’s important to find a community where the family member will be comfortable and which suits the family’s needs.
Not every community is equal. It’s important to visit more than once and at different times of the day to meet the staff who will be providing care.
The Peninsula offers assisted living and within the community as well as a secured memory and Alzheimer’s care residence called The Garden. It is geared to residents with varied stages of dementia.
Residents find the lifestyle of The Peninsula offers a variety of choices from activities to accommodations. Apartment residences include studios, deluxe suites or one-bedroom layouts all with kitchenettes.
Semi-private suites are also available so residents have the option of companionship which can be very beneficial to forming friendships and encouraging social interaction.
One of the benefits of The Peninsula is that it is a warm, comfortable environment and the spirit of caring is so evident. Many of the staff has been long-time employees working at The Peninsula for many years. This fosters a sense of warmth. People know everyone and cater to each resident’s needs.
A full time community activity director provides stimulating and creative activities and social events. Residents are engaged and entertained through a monthly calendar of events. They are encouraged to participate in favorite activities, such as bingo, lectures, sing-a-longs, crafts and memory building games.
Health services are brought into the community by visiting doctors, podiatrists, physical therapists, nursing and home health agencies.
There are many state laws regulating an assisted living community and government agencies often come for inspections to make sure communities like ours are in compliance with these requirements. The Peninsula continues to be in compliance, which is extremely important in selecting a community for a loved one.
