We offer a comfortable home like setting where families and friends feel welcome.

Elsie's is licensed for the care of Category A & B residents, providing 24 hour direct care with a maximum of 12 residents. Our low resident to staff ratio allows us to get to know each resident as an individual and give them the specialized care that they require. This knowledge enables our staff to be proactive rather than reactive, when it comes to special needs that may arise.

We also provide Adult Day Care and Respite services. Allowing families an opportunity for a break during the day, or extended care for multiple days to work with family schedules.

Consider the level of care required and the individual needs of your family member. The responsibility to choose a suitable residential care facility can come at a moment's notice. Weighing the options may create stress for both the resident and family members. Elsie's staff assists our residents to maintain their sense of independence and dignity. Our staff can perform stand by assistance for the more independent, and full assistance for those who require more extended help. Some of the things that the resident may need assistance with might be dressing, bathing or monitoring medications, or maybe they suffer with cognitive impairment, are at risk of falling or may have chronic medical conditions that must be addressed. We will provide an assessment and complete a detailed care plan in cooperation with the family in order to provide comprehensive care tailored to individual needs.

Don't let your loved one get lost in the crowd: Most Assisted Living facilities throughout the country are large facilities, up to 100 beds; in this setting it is very difficult for the staff to truly connect with the residents on a personal basis. At Elsie's our staff builds a relationship with the residents, becoming aware of their likes and dislikes. This allows our staff to respond to their individual needs.

Extended Family: Elsie's staff builds a strong relationship with the family members giving them the opportunity to fulfill their own lives while knowing that their family member is receiving the care that they need. We provide support during transitional periods.

Right Choices: Finding the best fit for the resident and family members reduces the likely hood of multiple moves to different residential care facilities. At Elsie's Assisted Living our staff connects with each resident thinking of them as one of their own family members and goes beyond and above providing one-on-one extra care.

Elsie's Assisted Living Corp., is a wonderful answer to all of these questions.

Give Elsie's a call and set up an appointment. Care giving is our #1 goal and we take all that it entails very seriously.
