Depending on the circumstances of your situation, or that of your loved one, needs can be matched to the right level of assistance. When help with daily tasks is needed, such as taking medicines, bathing, dressing, meals, transportation and/or housekeeping, or if safety is a concern, an Assisted Living residence can be the answer. Trained professionals provide this assistance while helping preserve an individual’s independence. If concerns are identified by a resident, loved one, friends, neighbors or team members, our interdisciplinary team will coordinate a meeting with the resident and family to explore options. We do this together.

This is the idea behind a Life Plan Community. In addition to Assisted Living, Smith Village offers Memory Care for those suffering from Alzheimer’s or another form of age-related dementia.
