If you seek the best assisted living community for your loved one, look no further than Ashley Landing. Located in North Charleston, this full-service community combines the comforts of home with daily conveniences and medical services that meet the needs of all residents.
Matthew Baker, the executive director at Ashley Landing, shared what’s at the core of why Ashley Landing stands out among assisted living communities.
“In essence, it is all about the quality of life we can help provide for our residents and their families. Assisted living communities offer additional assistance residents need while understanding independence is still a very important part of an individual’s life. Here at Ashley Landing, we strive to enhance the physical, social, emotional and financial well-being of everyone we serve,” he said.
In addition to assisting with the six ADLs (activities of daily living) – eating, bathing, dressing, toileting, transferring and continence – the community has an on-site physician, an on-site pharmacist and therapy services. Ashley Landing also offers its residents transportation to local doctor’s appointments.
While medical needs are always a top priority, offering the comforts of home is also very important for residents.
“At Ashley Landing, we provide a diverse offering of culinary options and give our residents the ability to choose what suits their tastes for that meal. This may not sound that important to someone not living in this type of community, but it makes a very big difference in their well-being and happiness,” said Baker.
Ashley Landing also has a life enrichment director who is a very important part of its happy and successful community. “We call it a life enrichment director because that is exactly what we strive to do – enrich the lives of our residents,” said Baker. “We plan special events for the holidays with families and residents, and we do multiple outings each month, such as trips to restaurants, shopping outings, mystery tours through Charleston and trips to many of Charleston’s historic sites.”
While some assisted living communities base their rates on the day-to-day needs of the residents, Ashley Landing offers unique all-inclusive pricing that includes the room, specialized care and daily assistance.
Baker said, “Ashley Landing has made it easier for families to budget by setting this standardized or all-inclusive price at a set rate for all levels of care. Additionally, families will not have to worry about the cost of care skyrocketing as their loved ones need additional care as they age.”
“What we strive to provide at Ashley Landing is a peace of mind to families that their loved one is in the best place they can be,” Baker concluded. “We allow families to enjoy their lives and feel safe and secure. It’s a very rewarding feeling having a family tell you they can sleep soundly at night, go on vacations and live the life they have worked so hard to attain while feeling confident their loved one is getting exceptional love and care.”
