What is Assisted Living?


The Help You Need – The Respect You Deserve
At Five Star assisted living communities, residents do everything they want to do and they do it on their own to the best of their abilities. And when assistance is required, our well-trained and warm and caring staff are there to provide it, no matter what it is or when it is needed. From basic activities of daily living, such as bathing and dressing, to transportation and reminders to take medication, we give you or your loved one and all of our residents the personal care they need and the respect they deserve.

Personalized Service and Support
Every resident is different and “assisted living services” means different things to different people. That’s why we begin with a customized assessment of support services requirements before our residents even move in. With this information, we can plan to meet each resident’s specific needs from day one. We also follow up after move-in to make sure the level of support is sufficient and appropriate. With our full-service model, we can handle whatever changes need to be made. And because the cost of assisted living is often a major concern, our residents only pay for the specific services they need and use.

Lifestyle360: A New Approach to Resident Wellness
At Five Star Senior Living, we invite residents into our senior living communities not just to live with us, but to thrive with us. It’s been widely publicized that adults are living longer but there is a lot of evidence that we aren’t necessarily living longer in a healthy state. Five Star is working to change that with our Lifestyle360 program.

Lifestyle360 is a holistic approach to active community living. The wellness program focuses on enriching residents’ lives using five dimensions of wellness, and is built on Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, a theory about how individuals work toward self-actualization – or becoming one’s “best” self. Using oneself as the benchmark makes the program inherently personalized as each resident works toward developing her/his interests and abilities. Each aspect of the program is research-based and has been shown to have physical, mental, and/or spiritual benefits which, in concert, improve overall wellness and feelings of well-being.
