If you want a fulfilling retirement filled with friendship, new hobbies, and plenty of adventure, you might think your best option is to age in place. Think again. The right senior living community offers everything you need under one roof. You don’t have to spend your days scouring the internet looking for events. There’s no need to plan outings or shell out cash in the perpetual quest for a little excitement. Just walk down the hall to yoga class or grab a gourmet meal in the dining room while chatting with a neighbor. And if you need help, the right senior living community ensures that you can always get it. These are amenities you just can’t get at home. Our top assisted living and dementia care floor plans make it easy to feel safe and secure while enjoying the retirement you deserve. 

Assisted Living Madison 

Our assisted living community caters to seniors who want to remain independent but need some help with daily activities. Our thoughtfully designed apartments play a key role in keeping you safe and ensuring your comfort. The Madison apartment boasts an intelligently designed space that makes the most of every nook and cranny. This one bedroom, one bath home features a spacious bedroom with a large closet, well-appointed kitchenette, cozy living room, and a full bath.

Bridges Living Hampton

Dementia exists on a continuum, and not all people with dementia are ready for dementia care. We want to help you remain independent for as long as possible. Bridges Living is our answer to the many challenges people with mild to moderate dementia face. We’re here to help you, and we believe in the power of plenty of activities and support to transform the fear of dementia into something altogether different. Our Hampton studio apartment features a kitchenette, a safe and cozy bathroom, a comfortable bedroom, and a sitting area where you can enjoy entertaining or curling up with a good book. 

Dementia Care Shared Suite

Dementia can be deeply isolating. No one understands the challenges you face as well as someone who is walking a similar path. That’s why residents in our dementia care community enjoy our Evergreen shared suite. This deluxe apartment has room for two, with separate bathrooms and bedrooms and a shared living area. You’ll still enjoy privacy, while relishing the comfort that comes with knowing someone else is there with you. 

Choosing the Right Floor Plan

When weighing your options for senior living, consider how much space you need, and what your ideal home looks like. After all, you’ve worked hard to earn a comfortable retirement. You deserve to retire to a community that offers homes you can be proud of. 

Ultimately, though, it’s not the floor plan that matters most. It’s the community that surrounds your apartment. Quality senior living communities support your efforts to pursue new interests, make new friends, get more exercise, and live a life that feels meaningful — even if you struggle with cognitive or physical disabilities. So spend some time exploring different communities. Visit during a meal or community event. Look for a community with engaged residents, kind staff, and a positive approach to aging. Be sure to ask about: 

  • The exact level of support and assistance you can expect. 
  • The food, including costs and types of meal plans. 
  • Amenities such as transportation and housekeeping. 
  • Special events such as live music and celebrations. 
  • Regular events such as exercise classes and support groups. 
  • Continuum of care. If your needs change, can you stay in the community? 
  • Caregiver support. Does the community offer assistance to family members? Can your family attend community events? 
  • The community’s culture and values.
