The time comes in many of our lives where the needs of aging parents, or even yourself, come to the forefront. There can be many decisions to make. Move to a senior community? Age at home? The answer depends on the needs and preferences of your family.
These decisions can be challenging, says Kelsey Brown, of Cranberry Park in West Bloomfield. “Choosing a community for your loved one can be an emotional challenge for your family.” Regardless of your choice, it is essential that the basic needs of daily living are considered.
Most importantly, start with some honest conversations about your loved one’s ability to care for him or herself. Are they mobile? Can they cook, clean, and shop for themself? These fundamentals can be a good launching point for narrowing down the best option. Your loved one may just need help running errands or may have more complex needs, requiring help with bathing, food preparation, and medications.
Cranberry Park, a new facility in West Bloomfield, offers services from respite programs to help your loved one get back to independence after surgery, to assisted living to support an independent lifestyle, to memory care. Basic needs are balanced with enrichment programs designed to enhance residents’ lives. Notes Kelsey, “Our life enrichment program offers robust cultural activities and fine arts. An active lifestyle is best maintained by providing diverse daily socialization. In addition to activities, our fine dining offers a chef-created menu. This menu is adaptable to meet your loved one’s food preferences along with their nutritional needs. At Cranberry Park of West Bloomfield, our around-the-clock support team is available to provide your loved one with care and compassion.”
At any age, building a sense of connection is critical, and the right environment can help. Says Kelsey, “Our neighborhood living boasts warm, well-appointed settings that pulse with a true spirit of community and caring. Mingle when you want and enjoy your own company when you want."
Adds Kelsey, “Cranberry Park of West Bloomfield prides itself on a unique boutique-style living that mixes concierge lifestyle service with incomparable supportive services. Nestled within a lush nature preserve, we are conveniently located near various desirable shopping and dining establishments. Recently opened, we invite you to immerse yourself in our fine dining, enriching activities, and unparalleled senior living lifestyle.”
