Come be a part of Vista Village – senior living at its friendliest
We are not the typical independent senior living facility. Here, you can be as private or as social as you like. Our residents come and go as they please. Some have their own vehicles, and for those who don’t drive, we provide scheduled transportation to the grocery store, special events and local doctor’s offices. Vista Village Senior Living is a healthy alternative for people who aren’t ready for assisted living or skilled nursing situations. We provide a safe, home environment for elders without the responsibilities of maintaining a household and yard.
At Vista Village Senior Living you are on your own, but not alone. We have a staff member on site 24/7 to respond to emergency and non-emergency events. We have our own maintenance crew, housekeepers, cooks, activities director, and an office management team.
We encourage residents at Vista Village Senior Living to remain independent as long as they are able. When they need those next steps before assisted living, we work with our sister company, Care Coordinators, to provide additional services, such as dressing, bathing, and companionship. Although we do not have a medical team on staff, we work closely with several of the in-home care agencies and allow private care individuals on-site.
Not only are we family owned, our own family members have lived here. Many of our special event helpers are the children and grandchildren of former residents who return to socialize because they enjoy the supportive network created by our residents and staff.
Our Activities Director plans both in-house and out-of-house activities. In-house events include: weekly bingo, board games and movie nights, crafting hours, chair exercise, monthly birthday parties, a Saturday milkshake day and holiday parties. Out-of-house events cover a wide array ranging from doctor visits and grocery store runs, to picnics at the lake, boat rides, viewing exhibits like the Viet Nam Memorial Wall, and monthly lunches at local restaurants.
We have created two apartments for individuals that are coming out of rehab, but who are not ready to go home and live alone. Spending an extra 3 days – 3 weeks – 3 months with us is an option that gives our temporary residents a measure of safety, as well as social interaction before transitioning back to living on their own. The Transition Suites are fully furnished except for phones, food and personal items.
Elders coming from their own homes to being in a community environment find living at Vista Village Senior Living an easy transition. We are pet friendly, so our residents don’t have to give up their four-legged companions. Although we do not have a medical team on staff, we do have a staff member on-site 24/7. Included in the rent are such amenities as: light housekeeping – twice a month, utilities (except for phone and Internet), cable TV, transportation to doctors and shopping, inside mailboxes, door-side garbage pick-up, and a coin operated laundry.
