Is assisted living the right choice for your parent or loved one? When it becomes apparent that they need some additional help there are many questions you need to ask yourself:
These are tough questions that families must ask themselves. The answers are different for each family and situation.
To guide your decision, here are some of these key benefits of assisted living and the services assisted living facilities provide:
Family members no longer need worry about their loved one falling, being scammed, getting lost, eating healthy or taking the wrong medication. Assisted livings have trained staff on-site 24 hours a day to oversee and help your family members.
As we age, it’s more important than ever to remain physically and mentally active. Assisted living residents are offered numerous indoor and outdoor activities from gardening to yoga, and cultural events.
Isolation in seniors can lead to a host of problems from depression to poor health, mobility issues and more. It’s not uncommon for seniors to become isolated as they get older. In assisted living, residents become part of a loving, supportive community. They’re surrounded by people their own age and have many opportunities to socialize and enjoy the company of others.
It’s important for seniors to retain their independence, yet also have the assistance they need. Assisted living provides residents with help, only as needed, with daily living activities, such as bathing, dressing or eating.
Great food and nutrition are important for your senior loved one. At Broad Creek Manor, seniors get both. Our menu of home cooked meals is changed weekly and has been approved by a dietitian to deliver the best nutrition to our residents.
Assisted living enables seniors to enjoy social contact, security and support while still maintaining their independence.

Scott and Melissa are eager to be taking over at the end of January as the new owners of Broad Creek Manor Assisted Living Facility. The staff and residents of the existing facility are amazing! We cannot wait to be a part of this family. Broad Creek Manor already has an excellent staff, amazing location, and great residents. We are excited to implement some new ideas to make Broad Creek Manor even better! We plan, over the next few months, to do some updates including adding a beauty salon and a large activities room where the residents can engage in a variety of individualized activities.
