What is a CCRC?
A Continuing Care Retirement Community usually combines all three levels of care–independent living, assisted living & skilled nursing care–in a single setting. As health needs change, residents can be secure in the knowledge that high-quality supportive services & care are available, when needed, in an attractive, professionally staffed on-site environment.
This full continuum of care is a major benefit of life at Wesley Commons. As a resident, you can count on staying in your community near your friends even as you may require more assistance in daily living.
Our professional staff works with residents, their families & physicians to determine the appropriate level of care needed as certain conditions progress. Your healthcare is regularly evaluated to ensure your needs are being met & choices are addressed at every level–from meal times & venues to social activities & exercise.
Wesley Commons also offers innovative approaches to Alzheimer’s & dementia care. As part of our Assisted Living, we offer a 12-room, state-of-the-art Special Care House which is highly residential in character & features a variety of therapeutic activity stations & an enclosed garden courtyard.
We also provide licensed home health care & in-patient rehabilitation.
