The Benefits Of Assisted Living At Richfield

The Benefits Of Assisted Living At Richfield

Thinking of our own or a family member’s senior years, many of us might have not considered the benefits of a move to assisted living, though we, or a loved one, may indeed need to at some point in our lives. And while wants and needs as you age often seem far apart, assisted living at Richfield Living in Salem, Virginia, may just be able to help you close that gap. Learn about the benefits of assisted living on our campus.

Defining Assisted Living

Let’s start by defining exactly what assisted living is, and what it is not. Assisted living typically includes private or semi-private accommodations, meals, 24-hour supervision, support with daily activities such as bathing, dressing and medication management as well as social opportunities, activities and outings.

Assisted living is not a nursing home and as such is not for those with medical conditions that require round-the-clock care or specialized care such as Alzheimer’s disease and dementia, although nursing care and/or memory care may be on the same campus.

Assisted Living at Richfield

We offer two distinct assisted living environments on our campus:

The Oaks

The Oaks features spacious private or semi-private residences in a single-level setting with private baths.

Joseph C. Thomas Center

Joseph C. Thomas features large private rooms grouped in “households” of 16 residents each with a shared kitchen, common area, laundry room and access to an outdoor courtyard.

Both residences offer individualized service plans, a licensed nurse on-duty or on-call 24 hours-a-day, resident assistants on-duty around-the-clock, medication administration and assistance with personal care. Residents also enjoy amenities such as restaurant–style dining, a private dining room for special gatherings, a beautiful activity room, common areas, outdoor spaces and onsite hair salon.
