Find Your Stride at Brandywine
Requiring assisted living services is common for older adults. Assisted living at Brandywine, however, is remarkably uncommon.
At Brandywine, we offer luxurious assisted living services for seniors who want to maintain independence and a vibrant lifestyle as they age.
We make this possible through our skilled medical staff, high-end amenities, and thrilling Escapades… for Life! Our staff considers every last detail of senior care to ensure you or your loved one thrive from the moment you set foot in our community.
What is Assisted Living?
As we age, some activities become increasingly strenuous. We might have trouble carrying the groceries in from the car or traveling to the doctor’s office multiple times per week. Things that used to be easy just aren’t anymore.
When that time comes for you or a loved one, it might be time to consider assisted living.
Assisted living is for mature adults who may require a little help with their day-to-day activities. This includes anything that makes your life easier to enjoy, from personal care services to health care.
Specifically, these services include:
• Medication management
• Recreational activities
• Housekeeping and laundry services
• Caring for personal appearance
• And much more
At Brandywine, our assisted living services encourage family and community involvement, maximize residents’ dignity and autonomy, and provide solutions for each resident’s long-term care needs.
Above all, we focus on increasing quality of life as much as possible. It’s a focus we’re 100% committed to – ensuring our residents receive round-the-clock attention and hands-on residential care as well as continuous access to vibrant social events.

When to Consider Assisted Living
Navigating health care decisions later in life isn’t always clear-cut. Everyone ages at their own pace, leading to a wide range of needs across the spectrum. Sometimes a prospective resident needs more frequent access to professional nursing staff. Other times people want more social interaction and minimal help completing day-to-day tasks.
While we can’t provide a blanket formula for when you should start transitioning to an assisted living facility, we can accommodate that transition every step of the way.
Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) Become Difficult
Activities of Daily Living include bathing, hygiene, dressing, toileting, transferring, and eating. Typically when one can’t perform 2 of these 6 activities, it’s time to start considering long-term care options (whether that’s assisted living, independent living, or another form).
Home Care is no Longer an Option
For many, assisted living becomes viable once receiving home care no longer makes sense. Family members are great for support, but when medical conditions worsen, it’s best to have round-the-clock access to a full-time medical and hospitality staff.
Assisted Living Costs Are Manageable
Assisted living expenses aren’t always a massive shock to your regular budget since you receive many of the services you’re already receiving. We provide housing, dining, and access to skilled nursing care – all are necessities for any long-term care plan.
Other Types Of Services
Many of our assisted living facilities also offer independent living, respite care, and memory care services. Contact one of our retirement communities to explore which may be the best fit for you.
