Our Approach

Our approach for care is focused on making sure the best interests of the individual as well as the family are addressed. Our goal is to become your trusted partner. We conduct multiple pre-admission interviews with the physician, health proxy and family members to identify the critical factors to assure long-term placement success for you or your loved one.

Even as our faculties diminish with age or dramatic changes occur in our lives, being engaged in life is paramount to thriving in our latter years. Activities and interaction,

We recognize that residents will have preferences and levels of functions and try to offer a range of events and programs that offer different levels of activity and interaction that enrich their lives. All programs are FREE unless otherwise indicated.

Caregivers

The Elysian Gardens standard of excellence places a great deal of importance on surpassing the industry standard of full-time caregiver and Practical Nurse to resident ratio. The peace of mind brought about by assuring oversight by meticulously hired and professionally trained caregivers and nursing professionals is priceless to all those invested in the safety, comfort, and welfare of our residents. With compassionate support and a strong service driven mentality, our team works cooperatively to develop a comprehensive plan for you or your loved one. We collaborate with the residents, their families, 3rd party caregivers and doctors to come up with solutions to challenges and creating a shared awareness for the well-being of those we serve.

Dancing

Music has the ability to transcend time! Dancing is as popular as it ever was in senior communities as there’s arguably no better way to lift the spirits and keep the body fit. Our assisted living residents are encouraged to dance daily as we host regular dances and even some sessions of line dancing, swing dancing, and ball room dancing.

Exercise

Part of our core philosophy is healthy body, healthy mind. For our active seniors, we encourage fitness as a lifestyle instead of a fad. Residents have lots of conventional and non-conventional fitness programs to take part in such as aerobics, gardening and walking, chair yoga, and tai chi.
