Video: Learn more about our memory care philosophy

 
At Brightview Senior Living, we challenge people to change their minds about people whose minds have changed. This video, called “We Believe,” communicates the bedrock of our Wellspring Village® philosophy – that with enough support and encouragement, people living with dementia can still experience purpose and growth in their lives. We Believe - People living with dementia can lead full, engaged, meaningful lives. Our associates, residents, families, and friends believe. Do you?

What makes Brightview Assisted Living different?

At Brightview, care encompasses so much more than activities of daily living. Residents are encouraged each day to engage the mind, body, and spirit, participate in self-discovery, pursue their passions, and never stop learning and growing. 

We believe that care starts with a partnership between the resident, families, caregivers, and physicians. Our residents do not simply receive care, but they are active and engaged participants.  

Our highest priority is the right of each individual to be respected and treated with dignity. Privacy and discretion are honored, and the right to make choices for oneself is valued. 

We focus on what gives residents the greatest sense of independence and self-worth. Putting people before tasks, we create an environment where every resident is both encouraged and empowered to live a rich, full, meaningful life.      

Assisted Living vs. Nursing Homes

In generations past, the only residential care option for aging adults was a nursing home, otherwise known as a skilled nursing facility. However, these facilities are typically for aging adults who have more serious or extreme medical needs that require ongoing attention. Today, many aging adults don’t need the level of care associated with that of a nursing home. We're here to help breakdown the differences between senior and assisted living vs. nursing homes.

In recent years, a new option has emerged – the senior living community. Brightview Senior Living now has over thirty assisted living communities in eight states. These communities offer home-like environments that cater to both healthy aging adults, and those that need some assistance.

A senior living community not only offers a safe and comfortable place to live, but it provides an all-encompassing lifestyle where residents can also connect and socialize with others. In addition, communities may come equipped with amenities, such as a cafe, pub, theater, fitness center, library, beauty salon, community store, and much more.

Assisted living is designed for the senior who wants to live in a private apartment but may need a helping hand with certain daily living activities, such as taking medications, dressing, or bathing. Since each resident needs are unique, tailored assistance is offered to encourage and empower the resident to live as independently as possible. Additional services include maintenance, housekeeping, scheduled transportation, daily programs to encourage vibrant living, and three meals a day.
