What Not Your Grandma’s Nursing Home Really Means

Hearthstone luau 2

When most people think about assisted living, they think two things: bus rides and bingo. At Prestige Senior Living, we strive to break the typical stereotype of senior living by making life enrichment, wellness, and fun our top priorities. We take this mission so seriously, in fact, that we’ve coined our communities “Not Your Grandma’s Nursing Homes”!

You might be wondering what “Not Your Grandma’s Nursing Home” really means. It’s not enough to just say we prioritize fun; we need to show you.

It Means FUN

Now is the time to celebrate life! From mimosa bars and dolphin rides to football watch parties and endless reasons to celebrate, our residents enjoy the good life with a focus on laughter and fun.

Each year we host fun open houses in May and June to showcase the lifestyles at our community – click on each month to see the highlights from 2023!

It Means a Focus On Wellness

At Prestige, our life enrichment and wellness programming focuses on both physical and mental wellness. We proudly offer weekly fitness and exercise classes with our Wellness Coaches and Life Enrichment Directors, personal training opportunities for a customized approach to fitness, and cognitive stimulation programs designed to maintain and improve cognitive function over time.

It Means Independence & Choice

Our programming and support are all about maintaining independence and encouraging choice. With our focus on wellness and fun, we strive to ensure our residents feel stimulated and empowered to enjoy life in ways that best serve them by fostering a sense of belonging in an environment with plenty of choices and freedom.

It Means Quality Care & Support    

Depending on a resident’s acuity level, we offer a variety of services and levels of care, including independent living, assisted living and memory care. Within each of our services, we offer resident-focused care that considers each individual’s needs and preferences. Our team members are also trained on the latest and most advanced forms of caregiving and receive ongoing training to ensure the safest environment possible for those we serve.

We also offer a variety of digital resources and online support related to common topics and questions about senior living, including transitioning to senior living, family dynamics, safety, technology, and financial planning. We encourage you to check out our blog and resource guides for this information.  

It Means Safety

The safety of our residents is our top priority. Each community is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week with highly trained team members to ensure the well-being of our residents. In addition, our apartments are carefully appointed with vital safety features, including weight-bearing grab bars in the bathrooms, walk-in showers, emergency call chords and easy-access shelving.

In addition, our memory care neighborhoods offer a highly secured environment with keypad entry so residents are unable to access areas that might be a risk to their health and safety.

  • Fully appointed and specious apartments
