This Isn’t Your Granny’s Nursing Home
You’ve known this day would come. It’s time to make a decision about living arrangements for someone you love, or maybe for yourself, and the whole process feels heavy. You’re navigating family dynamics, daily responsibilities, and a decision muddled by layers of options and emotions and what-ifs.
Fear, dread, exhaustion, sadness, guilt – every day it’s a new combination of emotions. And what’s worse, if your only impression of senior living is your granny’s nursing home from the 1970s or 80s – the depressing rooms and icky smells – then it’s a daunting task indeed.
But what if you could replace all that dread with a whole new perspective? You can at Someren Glen. Our community is vibrant, welcoming, energetic, inspiring – not a bit like those dismal notions from the past. Our residents and their families are living proof that life can be lived to the fullest through its entirety and that assisted living and long-term care are more like opportunities instead of last-ditch options.
At Someren Glen, residents are encouraged to find fulfillment and live purpose-filled days. While that looks different for each individual, residents at Someren Glen are known personally and valued no matter where they are in their aging journey.
Recently, a family member of one of our transitional care residents shared how her mother’s experience exceeded their expectations. “The staff at Someren Glen was very understanding and patient. They respected my mother and where she was physically. The entire staff was great. Thanks to their efforts, my mother is back at her assisted care facility and doing wonderfully. I cannot say enough good things about Someren Glen.”
Meeting people right where they are is just one of the ways the Someren Glen staff is redefining senior care and debunking outdated perceptions. Our care starts from a position of honoring each individual as a unique contributor to our community. We delight in seeing our residents flourish – that is the essence of who we are at Someren Glen.
Here bucket lists are strongly supported. One of our most inspiring stories is about a resident who had always wanted to ride in a hot air balloon and got to fulfill her dream. Best of all, that woman’s high-flying adventure inspired others around her to revisit (or start writing) their own wish lists.
And while residents are surrounded by inspiring people and opportunities, they also receive appropriate and professional care. Someren Glen offers a broad spectrum of services, from residential living and assisted living, to rehabilitation, memory support, and skilled nursing. The staff understands the dynamic nature of long-term care and the changing needs of residents and are equipped to help each person navigate that journey with dignity and poise.
This refreshing new experience is a welcome option for many – for the person who needs more specialized care, for the couple with varying needs, and for family members needing peace of mind. So, if you are at the crossroads of what’s next and what ifs, you can forget the misconceptions of the past. There’s a better option. At Someren Glen, we’re changing the way people live … for the whole journey for the whole family.
