What is Long-Term Residential Care
Long-term residential care for seniors includes a wide range of medical and support services provided over an extended period of time. There are two categories of long-term residential care services: Personal Care and Skilled Care.
Personal care provides assistance with activities of daily living and/or provides supervision of an individual who is cognitively impaired.
Skilled care includes nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, and medication management. These services are provided by a licensed professional.
4 Seasons Senior Living residential care homes are specially designed for a welcoming feel while providing the best safety and security for your loved ones. Our experienced staff is available and ready to care for your loved one 24/7.
Our unique senior care program is tailored to each resident's needs in collaboration with their families, physicians, and other allied health care professionals. Our caregivers provide assistance for your loved one with all of their activities of daily living (ADL's) and individualized care needs. We take special pride in our ability to help those with memory care issues, including seniors with Alzheimer's along with those affected by stroke, cancer, and Parkinson's.
We deliver compassionate and high-quality care to ensure your loved one is getting the tailored personalized senior care they need. Our charming residential care homes offer a unique and affordable option, with 4 - 6 residents per assisted living home and options for private and semi-private rooms.

Cause/lead to dementia
There is no cure
We have specifically designed a support system to provide quality senior care for your loved one with memory loss and other cognitive needs.
We maintain a low resident to staff ratio (4:1) at our residential care homes. This makes providing individualized senior care and memory care easier. Memory care plans are created specifically for each resident.
Caring for a loved one with memory loss can be overwhelming.
At 4 Seasons Senior Living, we provide support and education to families. We direct you to make informed decisions about the level of care required for your loved ones.
You are not alone.
Our professional staff, caregivers, and nurses receive special training in Alzheimer's and Dementia-related care. Our staff understands the importance of being compassionate, patient, and maintaining a set daily routine that is tailored to each resident.
Memory loss: misplacing items and forgetting recently learned information, conversations, names, etc.
Disorientation to time: difficulty remembering the day of the week.
Speech impairments: trouble finding words.
Impaired sense of direction: difficulty holding directional capabilities and "being lost" in a familiar place or location
Decision-making impairment: difficulties with typical decision making, use of poor judgment, or even typical organizational Skill impairment
Stages of Dementia
What is Hospice
Hospice care focuses on quality of life and providing compassionate care during the last phases of the disease so your loved one can be as comfortable as possible. During an illness that is terminal, you or your loved ones may talk with your doctor and decide the treatments meant to cure or slow a disease are no longer working.
Your doctor can make a referral for hospice care, which is also known as end-of-life care.
At 4 Seasons Senior Living, our team includes caregivers, doctors, nurses, and home health aides that work together to meet your physical, emotional, and spiritual needs.
Hospice isn't always a permanent choice. You have the control to decide if you want to continue with hospice care or stop. Whatever your decision is, we are here for you to provide the care you need.
What is Respite Care
A respite stay (respite care) is also known as temporary or short-term care. Often times, seniors need additional healing time after they have been in the hospital or a nursing center before they can go home.
Respite care is a good solution to provide the care you need during the recovery process. Another way families utilize respite care, is if they are going out of town or simply need time off for themselves.
Family members are traditionally happy to provide care to their loved ones so they can remain at home. However, the physical and emotional toll for the caretaker can become overwhelming without a break. Seniors with memory care issues need continual supervision requiring a safe, secure environment that we can provide.
4 Seasons Senior Living provides short-term care options for seniors who need assistance, personal, or memory care. We also take care of any respite care services including fall prevention, bathing assistance, meal preparation, and so much more.
We know that taking care of your loved one is sometimes beyond your control, and you just need help to give them what they need to live comfortably.
You can trust 4 Seasons Senior Living to take over the caregiving duties on a temporary basis.
We want to give families peace of mind knowing that their loved ones will be loved and cared for as long as they are with us.
A stroke can occur at any time. It happens when blood flow to an area of the brain is cut. Brain cells are deprived of oxygen and begin to die. When brain cells die during a stroke, abilities controlled by that area of the brain such as memory and muscle control are lost.
Sometimes the warning signs of a stroke may last only a few moments and then disappear. These brief episodes, known as transient ischemic attacks (TIA's) are sometimes called "mini-strokes." These should not be ignored. TIA's help to identify any underlying condition.
What is a Stroke
4 Seasons Senior Living is trusted to provide the senior care you need during the stroke recovery stage. Stroke recovery can take anywhere from three to four months to two or more years. This depends on the severity and recovery conditions. The level of senior care required during the stroke recovery also depends on the severity of the stroke and other factors.
What are the warning signs of a stroke
Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm, or leg (especially on one side of the body)
Confusion, trouble speaking or understanding
Trouble seeing in one or both eyes
Trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination
Severe headache with no known cause
Mobility can be impaired in numerous ways in old age.
Our job at 4 Seasons Senior Living is getting our residents the stimulation, activity, and exercise they need to have fuller and more satisfying days. We keep our resident's health and safety at the forefront when considering how much time they spend in their wheelchair. Many of our residents exclusively use wheelchairs for mobility in our residential care homes and our caregivers are fully trained to fluidly transfer residents in and out of wheelchairs.
Our experienced caregivers understand each resident's desired schedule and maintain stimulating activities and tasks throughout the day. Our staff acknowledges how important mobility and variety have had on a well-rounded day, and we make sure our residents have an active role in making their day enjoyable.
