What Is a Continuum of Care? accent

March 1, 2022 | By

Change is one of the few certainties in life. Your lifestyle, relationships, and goals are likely quite different than they were 10, 20, or 30 years ago and you may have different desires and needs tomorrow than you do today, which can make future planning difficult. 

A continuum of care ensures that no matter how your life and needs shift in the coming decades, you can live in a way that feels right to you. We help adults navigate the entire aging journey with a range of living options. Our levels of living prioritize your needs, so you can enjoy the retirement you deserve. 

What Is a Continuum of Care?

What does “continuum of care” mean? At WesleyLife communities, it means catering to your evolving needs, no matter how they might shift with time. Your preferences and desires are central to everything we do. We provide multiple levels of living, each of which can be customized to your lifestyle: 

  • At-Home Services: Our at-home support services help you remain comfortable at home. They also can complement family caregiving, making daily support easier. Options include home healthcare, hospice, Meals on Wheels, and Adult Day services. 
  • Independent Living: Independent living is about living in a vibrant, social community while pursuing the life you love, with the bonus of maintenance-free living and convenient amenities. 
  • Assisted Living: Assisted living offers a bevy of amenities and resources, including nourishing meals, an assortment of programming, and a welcoming community in which you can explore your interests and talents. It also includes support for activities of daily living, offering only what you want and need. 
  • Memory Care: If you are living with Alzheimer’s disease or another dementia, memory care can serve you. This supportive setting prioritizes safety and offers enriching programming tailored to meet the changing needs of those living with dementia.
  • Short-Term Rehabilitation: Designed with long-term results in mind, our short-term rehabilitation services help restore skills and get you back on your feet after an illness or surgery.
  • Long-Term Care: If you have complex medical needs, our skilled nursing team offerings include long-term care to help you manage chronic and progressive medical conditions while you continue to live and participate in the vibrant community around you.

Why Levels of Living Matter

Let’s face it: Ageism is real. Stereotypes about older adults color our perceptions and hinder our idea of what’s possible as you age, but that’s not the case at WesleyLife communities. We know that each resident is an individual, and there are no one-size-fits-all aging services. Our levels of living help you achieve the lifestyle you desire. Within each level of living, you can customize the amenities and services you use to live your best life.

Here are some of the benefits of levels of living: 

  • You get what you want and need. You are never offered too much too soon, and never less than you need. 
  • We support your family as you navigate aging by easing caregiving responsibilities and providing peace of mind.
  • As your lifestyle needs and wants shift, your services can transition with you.
  • You are empowered to choose the living solution that's right for your values and preferences. 

Choosing the Right Level of Living

Objectively assessing your plans for the present and future can be challenging, especially if family members or other loved ones have strong opinions. To choose the right level of living, consider the following: 

  • What is your ideal lifestyle? Are there any barriers you face in achieving that lifestyle? 
  • Would the right help make certain daily tasks easier?
  • Do you have a chronic or progressive medical condition that might affect your future needs? 
  • What are your primary concerns about growing older, and what might help ease them? 
  • What is your ideal living situation? Do you want to live at home, in a community, or with loved ones? 

Knowledge is power. This online assessment can help you determine which solution might be best suited for you. It only takes a few minutes to receive answers that can help guide you.
