Meridian Manor offers all residents the opportunity to pursue all eight dimensions of wellness—spiritual, vocational, health services, intellectual, emotional, environmental, physical, and social. This includes events like afternoon socials, a weekly walking club, chair exercises, volunteering in the community, pet therapy, brain games, bible study, and more. The emphasis is on achieving wellness in body and mind through all stages of life.
Assisted living offers individuals assistance with the activities of daily living—dressing, bathing, dining, medication management—while still offering every opportunity for maintaining independence. When researching a community offering assisted living, be sure to conduct a visit and observe the atmosphere. Are residents smiling and comfortable? Is there positive social interaction? Are meals served on time and with attention to detail? Do you detect unpleasant odors or unclean areas? Talk with staff, as well as with other family members you meet and get their input.
Safety, nutritional meals, professional support, health monitoring, and companionship—these are just a few of the benefits of choosing Assisted Living at Meridian Manor. A freestanding assisted living facility or nursing home simply cannot match the overall ambiance and home-like feeling that all residents enjoy in our full-service retirement community. And at Meridian Manor, Assisted Living services can come directly to your apartment.
