There are many different models for senior care. Some seniors prefer to remain in their homes and receive specialized home care. Some enjoy living in large retirement facilities with many other residents. A hybrid of the two that offers many of the advantages of both is residential care.
In a residential care facility like Premiere Cottages, seniors live in facilities that are designed to resemble ordinary single-family homes, and that are sometimes houses purchased and converted to be more accessible to seniors. Our four facilities in Long Beach offer the comforts of home living along with the benefits of senior care provided by a friendly, welcoming staff.
Residential Care Living
Unlike a large retirement community where residents essentially rent an apartment, Premiere Cottages residents live in ordinary homes. Each facility is equipped with six private rooms, as well as common areas like a living room and kitchen where residents can socialize. The environment is ideal for seniors who prefer a close community and strong social ties to other residents.
Residents can customize their room however they like, using the provided furniture or bringing their own, along with personal items. Each house offers different amenities, like master bedrooms with private bathrooms, patios, backyards, and gardens.
Each home also has wake staff to keep residents safe and well-cared-for. “Wake staff” is a term referring to staff members who stay awake at all hours to assist our clients with any needs during the night. Wake staff can respond quickly to medical emergencies, as well as minor issues such as helping a resident go to the bathroom in the middle of the night. Residents can sleep soundly knowing that someone is always there to watch over them.
Residential Care Services
Premiere Cottages also offers a full array of assisted living services, which include but are not limited to:
- Medication management
- Regular check-ups
- Assistance with daily tasks such as bathing and dressing
- Nutritious home-cooked meals every day
- Social activities and companionship
We provide senior residents with everything they need to live comfortably and free from want. Caring for an aging loved one can be a full-time job, as many children and spouses know. At a residential senior care facility, all the resident’s needs are taken care of by trained staff who are available 24/7. Rest assured that you or your loved one will receive the assistance and care you need.
