Personal Care at The Homestead

Here at The Homestead, residents enjoy personal dignity and independence in their own private accommodations, coupled with the reassurance of a professional, caring staff who provide assistance with daily activities.

In contrast to traditional personal care or assisted living programs, residents drive their own schedules with breakfast, bathing, sleeping and medication administration on flexible schedules designed around individual needs. Our residents get back something that’s lost in many facilities: the power to choose.

Many people wonder when they should move to personal care or assisted living. Our blog highlights nine desires that may indicate its time to explore personal care or assisted living.

NEW Personal Care Respite

During each four-week respite stay, residents enjoy every benefit of living in the personal care Homestead at Chapel Pointe, including things like three meals a day, 24/7 nursing oversight, activities, help with medications, social opportunities, and assistance with daily routines. In addition, a room furnished to feel like home and an all-inclusive daily rate starting at $205 make the transition simple.

Whether sampling personal care for the future or taking a short caregiving reprieve, your family can experience many benefits through personal care respite.
