With the holidays upon us, it’s time for family traditions, get-togethers, good food, and warm smiles. 2019 will be a time for self reflection and open minds, while we prepare to write a new chapter in our lives. The Arbor at BridgeMill, a luxury senior living community just off Sixes Road in Canton, hopes that you’ll consider a fresh start there and allow them to earn the right to be a part of the next big decision in your life.
“We offer a state-of-the-art community with four different neighborhoods to meet the needs of each senior,” said Jerry Rick, Executive Director of The Arbor at BridgeMill. “We have a heated indoor/outdoor swimming pool, spacious game rooms, billiard room, an art room, theater, fitness center, 24-hour access to staff and nurses, emergency response system, two beauty salons, and much more. But, what makes us truly unique is what we call ‘The Arbor Service Way,’ and that’s our commitment to providing the best service possible.”
Seniors who live independently but desire the social aspects of a community can choose from two options at The Arbor at BridgeMill:
Open concept, two-bedroom cottages with front porches, walk-in closets, all appliances, and garages.
One- and two-bedroom apartments with open floor plans, eat-in kitchens, granite countertops, full-size appliances, and balconies.
Independent residents can be free from tedious chores while participating in an active social calendar. Residents also enjoy beautifully landscaped open courtyards, comfortable areas to catch up with friends and family, and delicious restaurant-style dining.
Assisted living suites feature bright and airy luxury accommodations for residents who require a little more assistance. Each suite has a wireless emergency call system, so residents can easily call for help. A highly- trained staff supports residents 24 hours a day, which gives them peace of mind. Residents enjoy regular housekeeping and laundry services, delicious dining, a separate secured courtyard with beautiful landscaping, and a full social calendar.
The Arbor’s four levels of care ensure residents receive assistance tailored to their individual needs. The resident care director, who is a registered nurse, determines the appropriate level of care by completing a comprehensive assessment of each resident’s abilities and needs. These assessments are reviewed routinely, so resident needs and staff assistance are always aligned.
Memory care suites include the same comforts as assisted living. Memory care residents also have access to their own private secured courtyard where they can enjoy the outdoors in a safe area.
Staff members receive unique, multilevel, cognitive-care training, so they have the skills to interact positively with people experiencing memory loss. They pair this training with individualized programs proven to improve quality of life.
Dining With Dignity
For residents who need dining assistance, The Arbor recommends its award-wining Dining with Dignity program. This program uses preparation methods to create food options that hold the same nutritional value as a regularly prepared meal, but in a form that allows residents to maintain independence and dignity.
Chefs complete special training that incorporates ingredients that allow for easier chewing and swallowing. Meals are prepared in bite-size pieces, eliminating the need to use utensils. All of this is offered in an elegant plate-and-table presentation.
