Lifestyle Offerings at Charter Senior Living

Feb 10, 2021

“We know that you have many choices when it comes to senior living, which is why Charter Senior Living strives to go above and beyond expectations,” says Jayne Sallerson, Chief Operating Officer of Charter Senior Living. “We strive to demonstrate our commitment to our residents each and every day – that’s the Charter difference.”

With 22 communities across 10 states, Charter is reinventing what “senior lifestyle” looks, sounds and feels like. “From our carefree Independent Living options, to our dignified Assisted Living and to our compassionate and award-winning Memory Care, we are honored to give comfort and care to every one of our residents,” says Jayne. “From ideal locations to life-enhancing activities, delicious meals and all the details taken care of, Charter Senior Living’s goal is to provide the retirement lifestyle our residents want – and deserve.”

We believe that no matter how old we get, and no matter how much assistance we may require, every one of us wants and deserves to live as independently as possible while enjoying a fulfilling, engaged lifestyle.

Independent Living: For Active, Energetic Older Adults

Think that moving to a retirement community means that you’re giving up your independent lifestyle? Think again. Sure, you are giving some things up – specifically, chores and the boring tasks that come with owning a home. Independent Living residents at Charter Senior Living can say goodbye to cleaning, cooking, shoveling snow, lawn maintenance and everything else that is on your “have to do” list. This frees you up to do all the things you want to do … which is perfect for a retiree who’s ready to embrace their golden years and live the life they’ve always wanted.

Our Independent Living lifestyle is all about adventure and choice. Our communities feature special events, entertainment, guest speakers, intergenerational gatherings and participation in local organizations. You’ll be a part of a community filled with people in the same stage of life as you, who truly care about each other and who support each other to the fullest.

We want to make sure you enjoy the maintenance-free lifestyle of Independent Living for as long as possible, so Charter Senior Living is focused on providing holistic wellness for the whole person. You’ll find opportunities to get in the best shape of your life, stretch your brain with new learning opportunities and enjoy meals that aren’t just nutritious – they’re delicious. Best of all, everything is included in one monthly fee, making it so easy for you to relax and enjoy.

Assisted Living: Independence with Dignity

As we age, sometimes we need a little extra help with daily activities such as medication reminders, dressing and even bathing. For these situations, Assisted Living at Charter Senior Living provides dignified assistance when needed, allowing our residents to live as independently as possible.

Assisted Living pairs all the benefits and enjoyment of Independent Living with personalized care that promotes choice, dignity, privacy, independence and individuality. Residents enjoy a wide array of features, benefits and amenities, including: three delicious meals each day; planned group activities; scheduled local transportation; weekly housekeeping and linen services; paid utilities (except telephone and extended cable television); a spacious private living area and a fantastic team of caregivers available 24/7.

Our Assisted Living residents receive a personalized care plan that’s tailored to their unique needs, interests, goals and history. There’s no cookie-cutter approach to care here – every individual is treated as such. Some of our Assisted Living residents require minimal help, while others require quite extensive assistance. That’s all right. Our care team can flex services as needed, providing you with exactly what you need to help you live the life you want.

Memory Care: Helping Those with Memory Issues FlourishSM

For seniors living with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias, Charter Senior Living’s FlourishSM Memory Care Program addresses their unique needs while providing helpful support, loving care and personalized programming that honors who they are and where they are in their journeys. Our Memory Care philosophy is rooted in our belief that people with memory loss can grow and flourish throughout their journey and remain engaged, fulfilled and happy.

Our award-winning programing focuses on eight aspects:

  • Well-being, which includes structured daily activities focused on all aspects of wellness
  • Socialization and engagement, developed through group activities, intergenerational programs and sensory stimulation, among other therapies
  • Rest and restoration, involving personalized, technological interventions like music therapy to help manage challenging behaviors while promoting a calm, supportive environment
  • Meaningful relationships, focused on developing real relationships between team members, residents and their families, as we believe this promotes the very best possible care
  • Nutrition to provide residents with the nutrients they need to live as healthily as possible, while also involving them in mealtimes – an essential aspect of life for all of us
  • Support thanks to specially trained caregivers who understand the disease process and are devoted to helping each resident have a sense of fulfillment and success
  • Environment, in that our neighborhoods are specifically designed for those living with memory loss, providing a sense of home and belonging to provide a high quality of life
  • Sense of purpose, because no matter what stage of the memory loss journey our resident is in, a sense of purpose and success provide belonging, happiness and well-being that allows them to flourish

“Everything we do at Charter Senior Living is guided by our core principles: Serve with Heart; Serve with Purpose; Serve with Courage; Have Fun While Serving,” says Jayne. “We invite you to contact us and experience the Charter Senior Living difference for yourself!”
