Safety, nutrition, and professional support for its senior residents are Clarendale of Algonquin’s three main keys to providing a superior environment for its independent, assisted living, and memory care facilities.
Unlike some senior living communities, Clarendale accommodates three levels of care for its residents under one roof. Independent living offers a chore-free lifestyle for seniors who prefer the convenience of a facility, while not needing round-the-clock medical support.
For seniors wanting help with the activities of daily living -- such as bathing, dressing, dining, and medication management – assisted living is available in Clarendale’s service-rich village-like setting.
Clarendale aims to keep all residents connected and engaged through its various amenities, including an outdoor patio, walking paths, fitness center, full-service bistro, dining rooms, beauty salon and barber shop, massage room, resident business center, and common living rooms.
Clarendale officials advise, “When researching a retirement community offering assisted living, be sure to visit and observe the atmosphere. Are residents smiling and comfortable? Is there positive social interaction? Are meals served on time? Talk with the staff and other family members you meet.”
One resident’s daughter praised Clarendale’s memory care community, explaining that Clarendale focuses “on what seniors can do, not what they have lost.” The facility promotes therapeutic memory activities and programs, which it believes “help maximize cognitive development, diminish anxiety, lessen confusion, and increase peace of mind.”
Officials add, “Our emphasis is on services and programs that provide seniors an opportunity to stay a part of, and involved in mainstream living, as well as foster relationships with family and others outside the community. We strive to keep residents connected to the people, places, and things they most enjoy.”
