As an Assisted Living Community, Southminster Retirement Community allows for residents to live independently in an apartment-like residence while still having access to assistance with daily living through the preparation of meals, medication administration, light housekeeping duties, and laundry. This is an ideal living situation for seniors who are in the middle ground of not being requiring the more intensive care of a nursing home or CCRC, but still requiring some level of assistance on a daily basis. This type of community is normally less expensive than other types of more intensive care (e.g., memory care). Best of all, Assisted Living communities like Southminster Retirement Community can give you the peace of mind in knowing that your loved one is being cared for while maintaining a level of independence.
