For Jewish residents it also features an on-site synagogue. Residents of any faith, of course, are welcome to enjoy this small, boutique approach to Dementia Care. The Esplanade features a unique approach to helping seniors with dementia. They follow the general principle of Montessori education – seniors with dementia still have interests, preferences, and passions, and they are encouraged to continue to follow those interests while at the Esplanade. Group sizes for activities will be kept small, and if there is interest in a particular subject by just one or two residents, that interest will be supported and encouraged. And although The Esplanade will be new when it opens, it is managed by the Meridian Company, an internally know provider of services to seniors.

What are some questions we should ask our senior living advisor?

As a Certified Senior Advisor, feel free to ask any questions you may have. The top questions we get asked are about budgeting concerns, which level of care is right for the individual, and what is life like in an assisted living community. We are here for you and your family, to answer your questions and guide you through this process.

Can I bring my pet with me to my new assisted living home?

We can assist you in finding a new home that allows your pet. There may be a fee at move-in to cover any cleaning they will do at the end of the rental period, or they may collect a monthly fee. Most communities have a weight restriction for dogs. All communities require that residents be able to completely care for their pets or employ outside services to do so. Let’s meet and discuss your needs in your new home.

What are Activities of Daily Living (ADLs)?

Activities of daily living or ADL refer to daily self-care activities, such as eating/feeding, bathing/showering, toileting, dressing and grooming, walking or ease of movement. These help determine the level of care required to decide the best home options, such as nursing homes or assisted living or independent living. If you would like to find out more, give us a call.
