Nowadays, there’s a plethora of options to choose from when you are deciding on a senior living community for yourself or a loved one. How do you choose the one that’s right? As you’re touring senior living communities, here is what you should look for in order to make an informed decision.
It is important to look into what kind of services that a specific senior living community offers (such as assisted living or memory care). Everyone’s needs are different, so it’s important to find flexible services that will fit what you’re looking for. This is also important so you can plan ahead – can you come in as a more independent resident, but ease into assisted living or transitional care if you need it in the future?
At Martin Luther Campus, we offer a plethora of services that can be tailored for each unique individual. Examples of services that we offer include transitional care, assisted living, long term care, adult day programs, and stay by the day.
Besides obtaining professional care, it’s crucial to look at what kind of amenities a senior living community offers. What activities are available on site? Do they offer transportation? Are daily meals included? These are all factors to consider.
Meaningful Connections with the Community
Does the senior living community offer connections with the broader community? With community programs, seniors can become involved in projects with children, arts organizations and other local industries. At Martin Luther Campus, we partner with Community Programs and Institutions like MacPhail Music for Life, the Bloomington Art Center, Northern Clay Center and Indian Mounds Elementary School. With these partnerships in place, we are able to provide music therapy, art therapy and the opportunity for students to join residents for many celebrations.
Is the senior living community that you are looking into located in a desirable area? If family will be traveling in or if you plan to travel, is this senior living community near an airport? These are all great questions to ask when you are in search for a senior living community. The Martin Luther Campus is located in the suburb of Bloomington, Minnesota and is only 6.5 miles from the Minneapolis-Saint Paul International Airport. Our long term care and transitional care neighborhoods are located on beautiful grounds that are set against the gorgeous backdrop of the Minnesota River Valley. Our memory care communities are located near serene woods and wildlife and our assisted living apartments are located in a residential setting by woodlands, wetlands and the Minnesota River Bluffs.
The dedication, expertise, and service that staff at a senior living community provides can make a huge difference in the life of each resident. It’s a good idea to look up reviews online and staff credentials if possible. Our staff at Martin Luther Campus are dedicated to providing the dignity, integrity, compassion and service that we would afford our own loved ones. Delivering great customer service is our top priority and is created by building passionate and skilled care teams who get to know our residents as if they were family.
