Assistive Living at Beechwood Homes
You, like many other seniors, are often waiting until much later in life to downsize and transition. Your independence is important; however, you may face a few medical challenges that may exclude you from living in or moving into a senior independent apartment. Horizons is our “Assistive Living” facility located on the Beechwood campus. This new specialty care program that looks and feels like an assisted living environment and costs the same as assisted living; however, residents have immediate access to advanced nursing and medical care.
How is this different from Assisted Living….In an assisted living facility, if a resident experiences even a minor change in their medical condition, the facility is NOT allowed to provide the immediate nursing care and that the resident must be sent to the hospital for evaluation and treatment.
These trips to the hospital often result in an extended hospital stay, followed by a lengthy stay at a rehabilitation center, before ideally a return transfer back to the resident’s assisted living facility.
Benefits of Our Assisted Living Facilities
Seniors living in Amherst, Buffalo, Cheektowaga, Clarence, Kenmore, Tonawanda, and Williamsville, NY, are fortunate that our assisted living facilities are an option. They are a fantastic opportunity for seniors that need extra medical care. If you need help taking care of yourself, or if you know a senior that could use some extra assistance, be sure to consider all the benefits of our assisted living at Beechwood Homes.
- As opposed to other assisted living facilities, we can help seniors avoid unwanted trips to the hospital and provide the immediate care they need. That means no waiting for an ambulance to arrive and sitting for hours in the waiting room. Instead, you will promptly get the help you need at Beechwood Homes.
- You will have access to 24-hour senior care. If you plan on living somewhere else, you might not have 24-hour senior care. For some people that constant reassurance may be unnecessary, but for others, it could make all the difference in the world.
- You will feel more comfortable with the immediate care our assisted living facilities offer. Mentally, you will be less stressed knowing someone is available should you need them. Physically, you could spend less time suffering from ailments and more time being tended to.
- At one of our assisted living facilities, you can enjoy life. You can spend less time worrying about your health and more time experiencing all the fun that can be had.
If you wish to experience all the benefits of living at one of our assisted living facilities, please get in touch with our team. We would be happy to address any concerns you may have and go over all the details of what life is like inside our facilities and what kind of care you can expect.
