Moving can be stressful. It marks a major life change, disrupts routine, and makes you question, ‘am I moving to the right place?’
Moving into a senior care facility is no different.
There are myriad options for senior housing. At Weinberg Campus we know choosing the right option can be overwhelming. We want to help find the best place for you.
First, it’s important to understand the type of care needed in the new living facility. Is daily support and care needed from senior care professionals? Are regular events and opportunities to socialize important for health and wellbeing? Whether it is a nursing home, assisted living facility, or independent apartments, at Weinberg Campus we can help you find the setting that is the perfect match.
A nursing home will offer round-the-clock skilled nursing care for seniors who need it—those who cannot get in and out of bed easily, require occupational, speech, or physical therapy, or who need close medical attention. The specialized, personal care of a nursing home keeps a person safe and secure.
