Older adults are as unique and varied as adults of any other age, and what works for one person doesn’t work for everyone. Afterall, there’s a reason people choose all types of different houses and communities to live in during their lives. Some families choose suburban homes with large yards and sidewalks to bike on. Others choose to live in condos with amenities and maintenance services, and still others opt for the bustle of big city life.
Just because someone reaches a certain age doesn’t suddenly mean they should be content with a one-size-fits-all approach to homelife. Which is why there are so many options for different types of assisted living communities. At Broadmoor Court in Colorado Springs, CO, we offer numerous options within our community to meet the different needs of each senior.
If you’re considering a move into an assisted living community for yourself or a loved one, check out some of the details below about your options within the Broadmoor Court community.
Levels of Care
At Broadmoor Court, we offer three main levels of service with various levels of care within each category. The main levels of services are summarized below.
This level allows seniors to make a permanent residence within a semi-private or private apartment that includes a bedroom, living space, bathroom and kitchenette. Individualized care according to the person’s needs is provided, potentially including help with activities of daily living and medication management.
Individuals who opt for the assisted living level of care typically have the ability to live as independently as possible and have access to the amenities and activities throughout the community. They can bring their own furnishings and decor as appropriate to their new home to make it as comfortable as possible.
Respite care refers to short-term care that’s offered to assist seniors for a few days or weeks at a time. Respite care is billed at a daily rate and seniors stay in a furnished apartment during the time they reside at Broadmoor Court assisted living for this service.
This level of care meets a variety of unique needs. If seniors are being cared for by family members in their own homes, respite care can offer a break for those caregivers. It is also an option that allows family caregivers to travel or seek their own medical care. For example, if the main family caregiver needs to have surgery and will be recovering for a week or two, respite care allows the senior to enjoy a safe, comfortable and active lifestyle without the caregiver worrying.
Broadmoor Court is part of a faith-based parent company that has a mission of loving, compassionate service for others. That includes during end-of-life care. Our hospice level of care allows us to serve seniors and their family members in this time of need while providing utmost compassion and a comfortable, caring environment.
Personalized Services for Every Senior
Even within these levels of care, every senior has unique needs and preferences. The Broadmoor Court staff works with residents and their family members, if appropriate, to determine what level of support each person needs. We offer six levels, which range from Basic to Extended Care, and our monthly pricing structures reflect these levels.
Many seniors want to live independently and actively, only partaking in minor support when they need assistance with occasional activities. They may simply want to live in a secure environment, having the peace of mind that someone is nearby if needed and that healthy, nutritious meals are served daily.
Other seniors need additional help. They may need some guidance to ensure they take the right medications daily or help moving about the greater community. In some cases, seniors may need even more assistance, such as help with activities of daily living such as bathing.
Broadmoor Court offers a wide range of services to ensure the needs of every resident are met in a compassionate, dignified manner.
Activities and Amenities
On top of our care plans, Broadmoor Court assisted living in Colorado Springs, CO, offers many amenities and activities, so residents are able to make the most of each day in a way that’s meaningful for them.
Restaurant-style dining turns each meal into an outing, and flexible dining times ensure everyone can eat when it’s best for them. There’s a private dining room for special parties and family gatherings, and catering is available to support such events. A library, sunroom reading space, salon and scheduled transportation for shopping and visiting local attractions all provide plenty to do, and the assisted living activities calendar is filled with even more options.
Ultimately, when a senior chooses Broadmoor Court as their home, they have many options. Our staff supports each person in living their best life and enjoying as active and vibrant a lifestyle as possible.
