For some people who reach their mid 60s and beyond, everyday living becomes a bit more difficult.
Those basic personal tasks of everyday life become tedious. Fortunately, not too much help is usually needed, but some seniors still have difficulty finding it.
That’s not the case for those residing at Heritage Woods of Yorkville, which is the first affordable supportive living community to be developed in Kendall County.
The community is certified through the State of Illinois’ Supportive Living program and has been designed to serve adults 65 and older of all income levels that may require some help to maintain their independence. The community serves as a wonderful alternative to a nursing home and to those struggling while living alone at home. It’s especially beneficial for older adults who may not have the financial resources to afford private pay assisted living.
Supportive Living provides help with housekeeping, laundry, meals, and other similar activities that are needed to enjoy each day without struggling. They don’t provide Skilled nursing care which you would find in a nursing home setting.
At Heritage Woods of Yorkville, certified nursing assistants, who work under the direction of a licensed nursing staff, are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to provide the personal assistance needed by the residents.
Skilled nursing care is different than what’s offered at a community like Heritage Woods of Yorkville. This is the kind of ongoing medical and clinical care that someone who is chronically ill would need. Since these services are more typical of what a hospital provides, such places often have a clinical feel.
Supportive Living Communities such as Heritage Woods of Yorkville also offer many services and amenities that will make life more enjoyable such as Beauty Salon, Fitness Center, Recreational Activities and much more. Check out Heritage Woods of Yorkville today!
