Independence can be one of our most precious blessings.
When it’s no longer safe to live at home, assisted living can be the best choice to maintain that independence. But how will you know when the time is right?
The first signs you notice may be physical. A person may need assisted living when they require help with everyday activities such as bathing, dressing, eating, using the bathroom, walking, and getting in and out of a bed or chair.
Other reasons to consider assisted living can be more subtle. A person may be isolated from others, not engaging in life, being less productive, not preparing or eating healthy food, or losing the ability to plan out their day. Their emotional well-being may be waning.
At Ohio Living Westminster-Thurber, our goal is to help assisted living residents maintain independence, autonomy, choice, privacy, dignity, and safety. We create a personalized care plan so residents can live the life they want to live, with comfort and assurance that help is always near. Staff help each resident to engage in life, have fun, be social, and be well. You’ll have reassurance and comfort when you need extra support throughout the day or night.
Each of our four assisted living neighborhoods provide a relaxing environment with privacy when you want it. Yet, with multiple activities scheduled throughout the day and a variety of places to gather, you’ll have unlimited opportunities for friendship and fun. You can enjoy numerous programs and activities in our Life Enrichment Centers on campus. And to enhance physical wellness, you have access to a fitness center to help you maintain your strength and endurance. We encourage each resident to be as active and involved as possible, knowing that a helping hand is always available.
You’ll enjoy three savory and nutritious meals per day, prepared by our skilled culinary team headed by executive chefs. Menus change regularly and include seasonal ingredients, and we try to ensure that your favorite foods appear on the menu. Your meals are always cooked-to-order and prepared to your liking.
What’s more, you’ll have access to all the amenities the full community has to offer: an on-site chapel, bistro, Crossings restaurant, general store, beauty salon/barber shop, computer lab, library, and more. Additionally, a variety of community pets make Ohio Living Westminster-Thurber home, allowing you to enjoy some time with furry friends.
Most importantly, as part of a life plan community you’ll also have priority access to long-term nursing care, memory care, and short-term rehabilitation if your needs change. And as a faith-based organization, we offer a host of spiritual opportunities to enjoy including worship services, Bible studies, visits from the full-time chaplain and more.
