Is Assisted Living Right For Me?

Author: The Retreat At Church Ranch | | Categories: Elder Care , Housekeeping , Personal Care


Moving to an assisted living facility can feel intimidating, overwhelming, and just plain hard. It can mean going through decades of household items, saying goodbye to a family home, and the end of a chapter. It is also the beginning of an awesome new journey with new opportunities and new adventures waiting each day. Assisted living is a type of housing designed for people who need various levels of medical and personal care. Living spaces can be individual rooms, apartments, or shared quarters. The facilities generally provide a home-like setting and are physically designed to promote the resident’s independence.

As experts in the field, we at The Retreat at Church Ranch have written down information that will help you pick the right assisted living facility for your loved ones.

Assisted living communities are regulated by the Department of Health and Environment and are surveyed for quality and compliance with industry regulations regularly. These surveys can be found online on the department’s website. We are committed to full transparency and are happy to share our quality management reports and data.

We ensure that we let you know about the full extent of our services and the quality we deliver. We are proud of our attention to maintaining and improving the health and happiness of our residents. Health and happiness lay at the heart of our mission and purpose. These two factors, health, and happiness are the most important factors when determining quality.

Our clients, whom we refer to as residents of The Retreat at Church Ranch, have full access to the resident committees that have a voice in the services we provide, such as dining, activities, personal care, transportation, etc. We strongly encourage full participation in these committees. If a resident is unhappy, that concern should come to management immediately. We are proud of our responsiveness to all concerns. There is no question that shouldn’t be asked about any service quality issues. Involvement by family is also very important to us. We invite and strongly encourage families to stay involved and visit their family members as often as possible to personally experience whether the quality of care is being delivered in the highest way possible.

We are also proud of our activity offerings that address the full human potential in ways that address the physical, intellectual and spiritual needs of every individual in our care. When thinking of activities, resident involvement and enjoyment are very important. Residents can know they are receiving quality activities in their personal involvement. Moreover, residents are all invited to participate in the Resident Council, where they can express their feelings and make suggestions as to the type and schedule of activities.
