Assisted Living Frequently Asked Questions

Assisted Living provides a distinct combination of individualized care, familiar neighborhood surroundings and professional expertise. Residents are assured ongoing wellness evaluations and levels of living that address their specific needs. Licensed, compassionate team members assist with daily tasks as needed, and the many amenities and life-enriching activities are geared toward helping residents more easily enjoy what matters most to them.

It’s best to start with a physician’s assessment. Depending on the circumstances of your situation, or that of your loved one, you can match needs to the right level of assistance. When help with daily tasks is needed — taking medications, bathing, dressing, meals, transportation and housekeeping — Assisted Living can be the answer. Trained professionals provide support while helping preserve an individual’s independence.

We offer a continuum of care at Heron’s Key. In addition to Assisted Living, we provide Lighthouse Memory Care, Skilled Nursing care and Rehabilitation. These levels of living provide round-the-clock care for individuals recovering from illness or injury, or those needing more long-term care or support.
