Levels of Senior Care

This is why we keep local residents in all levels of care involved with our center through a number of social activities. We have an engaged connection with young children through our childcare facility and the local college, Elon University, welcoming students on campus for interaction and volunteerism.

What is Senior Living? What makes it different from a nursing home? Senior Living is not restricted to one level of care. Blakey Hall offers numerous options including Independent Living, Assisted Living and Memory Care. Blakey Hall offers all three options as well as additional support services if needed. Assisted Living and Memory Care both offer services and amenities like three (3) gourmet meals daily, housekeeping, transportation, and 24-hour care staff. We also offer a very interactive activity program that engages our residents with creative, spiritual, emotional, and social interests. Our Assisted Living and Memory Care communities also provide discreet assistance with daily tasks like medication administration, bathing and getting dressed, incontinence care, and getting to and from meals and events. Independent Living is a residential community offering 2 bedroom apartments fully equipped for seniors who just want to simplify their lives by having assistance with housekeeping and overall upkeep of their private home. These residents don’t require the day-to-day care services needed in Assisted Living or Memory Care, however, do provide peace of mind to those in the community.
How is assisted living different from a nursing home? How will I know which level of care is needed? Assisted Living offers 24-hour assisted care, such as supporting with their activities of daily living for specific needs in the areas of bathing, toileting, ambulation and many more. Skilled nursing homes are designed to house and provide care to individuals with serious health conditions that require constant monitoring and 24-hour skilled medical personnel. You may not know which level of care you or your loved one needs. Our trained staff can do an assessment to determine the level of care needed for your situation. We understand that this can be a difficult decision. Don’t worry and let us help.
When is it time to move to assisted living? How will I know it is the right time? It can be difficult to decide on the right time to make the move, and the right time varies for each person; however, most families wish they would have made the move sooner. For those that are thinking that it is time to explore, it is generally the right time. Assisted Living is ideal for those who need some help in their daily lives, but don’t require advanced medical care. If you or your loved one finds it challenging to perform daily living tasks, needs access to medical care, or wants to live in a place that offers social activities with other like-minded seniors, it might be time to try Assisted Living. At Blakey Hall, our staff members can help make the transition easier.
How do I know if Blakey Hall can meet my care needs? Blakey Hall’s Assisted Living and Memory Care communities have certified medication aides and caregivers that have met the state requirements to provide care in a licensed community. Our team assesses potential residents to determine if they are a right fit for our community. These assessments help us determine if we can provide appropriate care you need for loved one and see the potential for them to thrive at Blakey Hall. In the unlikely event that the assessment determines that Blakey Hall is not appropriate for you, we may be able to offer guidance.
