Get the best care for your loved ones.
You want them to enjoy a fulfilling retirement lifestyle. That may include helping them find the right living option – one that suits them now and for years to come.
Learn more about retirement community options so you can help your loved ones make the right choice. Senior living options offered by The Osborn include independent living, assisted living, long-term skilled nursing, memory care, short-term and outpatient rehabilitation, and Osborn Home Care.
Continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs), unlike stand-alone independent living communities, offer a continuum of care services. These may include assisted living, skilled nursing and rehabilitation, and memory support. This range of living and care options is the most flexible long-term choice for both active independent living and future health care.
Independent living People in relatively good health who can live independently have several options for a maintenance-free lifestyle. The minimum admission age at most communities is 65. The Osborn’s independent living includes Garden Homes and apartments, with a 100% refundable entrance fee and monthly fee, and rental apartments with no entrance fee.
Assisted living A team of licensed, caring professionals provides help with daily living activities such as grooming, bathing and medication management. Residents have just the right balance of independence and assistance. This allows them as much control as possible over their lives, while ensuring they get the assistance they want and need.
Memory care Sometimes called memory support or dementia care, memory care is specialized care for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia. Residents live in private rooms, with supportive services and activities. Specially trained professionals customize memory care services to your loved one’s individual needs.
Long-term skilled nursing When a loved one needs round-the-clock care, skilled nursing is an excellent long-term care option. Staff members include Physicians, Registered nurses and Certified Nursing Assistants. Services are provided at dedicated skilled nursing facilities or at skilled nursing centers within a CCRC. The Osborn provides round-the-clock skilled nursing in a homelike atmosphere in The Pavilion, located on The Osborn campus.
Short-term and outpatient rehabilitation We offer everything you need to recuperate, gain strength and get back to feeling fine and functioning at your best when you’re at home. This includes speech, physical and occupational therapies to optimize function, especially after orthopedic surgery, stroke or hospitalization for neurological, cardiac, pulmonary or complex medical conditions. Services are available with direct admittance and no entrance fee.
Osborn Home Care The exceptional personal care services that we offer Osborn residents can be provided in the homes of Westchester County, New York and Fairfield County, Connecticut residents. Osborn Home Care is also available to residents on The Osborn campus.
Not-for-profit communities, such as The Osborn, manage their financial resources in accordance with their mission. Long-standing values are reflected in governance and management. Benefits of a not-for-profit community include:
- All profits are reinvested into the community
- Continuous ownership by the same organization
- No profit motive to raise monthly fees
- Lower operating costs
- Direction by a dedicated board of trustees
- Foundation can provide support to residents who outlive their financial resources
Do you notice changes in a loved one’s behavior that seems to indicate a decline in health? Are you helping more often, taking on more responsibility and worrying more? When someone’s health declines, often the nearest family member takes on caregiving or care-coordinating responsibility. If that’s your situation, it’s important to realize you’re not alone. You don’t have to do it all. There are resources you can count on, and we can help guide you to them.
Signs to look for
If you notice two or more of the following behaviors or changes, it’s time to talk with your loved one about your concerns. And it may be time to get some help from family members or experts.
- Forgetting to take medication or not taking it as directed
- Not eating properly and regularly
- Unexplained weight loss
- Missing appointments
- Increase in accidents or bruises
- Frequent emergency room visits
- Not paying bills
- Unusually cluttered or dirty house
- Change in personal hygiene
- Loss of interest in social activities
- Changes in mood or confusion
Work together as a family If you have siblings or other family members who can help, talk to them. Make sure they know your concerns. Call a family meeting, or conference call if necessary. Discuss the situation, divide responsibilities and agree on an action plan where everyone has a role. Schedule a time to regroup and make sure everything is proceeding smoothly.
Talk with your loved ones Share your concerns about their well-being and seek their input on the plan you’ve developed with other family members. It may be a difficult discussion, or they may be more than ready to have the conversation. Most important, you’ll be doing something now that could well be heading off an emergency situation in the future.
Ask the experts There are many experts available to help, including your loved one’s physicians, counselors who help families with difficult decisions, and geriatric care managers. We also invite you to rely on our expertise. To schedule a private consultation with one of our experts at The Osborn, contact us.
You can start by asking what they know about retirement communities. Ask if they’ve visited any communities or if they know anyone living at one. Another approach is to ask them about their plans for the future. How do they want to enjoy their retirement years? If they feel that maintaining their home is too time-consuming and they’d rather spend time on other pursuits, they may be open to discussing the benefits of moving. You might also consider talking with an expert retirement counselor at The Osborn. We welcome your questions, whether your loved ones eventually move here or not.
