What is the Stillwater Difference?
Stillwater Senior Living, unlike other communities, we are locally owned and operated. We have the ability to go above and beyond personal care and customer service than the corporately owned communities. We pride ourselves in making our residents able to “Age in Place.” When it comes to moving into a senior living environment, it can be a very hard decision and transition to make for one to leave their home.
With other communities that have levels of care, as one’s health declines, and they require more assistance, the resident must move to another part of the community, which can actually add to their health decline. Change is challenging to everyone, but when you add that extra stress to the aging mind of a senior citizen, this can be traumatizing.
Our philosophy is keeping our residents in the same apartment as they age, but if additional assistance is required, outside caregivers or agencies, including hospice or palliative care can come in to help. If a resident happens to suffer with Dementia or Alzheimer’s, and are exit seeking, this is when we would have a conversation with the family and discuss transitioning to our secured Memory Care Neighborhood.
Regardless if living in an apartment in the assisted living or the Lakeside Memory Care neighborhood, everyone is under the same roof and our family-oriented community will immediately become part of your family too.
