As we age, maintaining good health can become a challenge. Luckily, there exists a community that has been dedicated to providing senior care since 1970.
Back then, the forward-thinking staff at Monticello West envisioned that as baby boomers aged, they would need to provide a place where people felt at home and have access to personalized medical care.
Today, nearly 45 years later, Monticello West has provided a community for aging adults to stay fit, active and mentally sharp well into the golden years.
“Critical to the overall atmosphere is the combined sense of community with high-quality healthcare,” says Monticello West communications representative Robin Daniels.
“Today, the community is operated by a leading provider of senior living communities, Life Care Services, that shares forward-thinking mindsets and is advancing care through special programs.”
When you meet with the staff at Monticello West, you immediately realize the difference, such as the tenure of staff. The staff is the foundation for the high-quality care, which has been honored with the industry’s coveted five-star rating.
In today’s modern age of information available on the internet, caregivers at Monticello West respect and realize that families work to gain advance knowledge and expertise about care for their loved one.
“We welcome family discussion and interaction to ensure that residents are receiving personalized, high-quality healthcare,” Daniels says.
“Communication is critical throughout all stages of memory care from early onset to advanced memory loss.”
Monticello West provides the full range of care, including all levels of assisted living to advanced memory care so patients remain in a familiar environment.
“Our goal is to enable our residents to live an active, independent lifestyle while our dedicated team members, including licensed nurses, provide assistance with medications, personal grooming, transportation and other specific services depending on the needs of our residents,” Daniels says.
At Monticello West, at least five scheduled activities are on the calendar daily, providing opportunities for intellectual stimulation.
“Activity selections are varied, with examples including a van ride, an afternoon social, or an after-dinner event with refreshments,” Daniels says.
Two outdoor courtyards provide opportunities for seniors to stay active while strolling amidst nature and beautiful flowers, right in the heart of Highland Park.
Monticello West’s chef, Taylor Self, has trained at the world-renowned Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, New York. Self works to get to know residents’ food preferences and provides clean, healthy food choices.
“The special attention we provide to our residents is what sets us apart,” Daniels says.
