While everyone needs a helping hand occasionally, seniors living in Vassar-Warner Home’s Assisted Living Program (ALP) enjoy more support in managing their daily chores than their peers do in our Adult Home. By catering to the additional needs of our ALP residents, our caring, attentive and skilled staff ensures that each resident is ready to face the day with his or her peers, for a fully engaging and rich lifestyle.
Whatever the need—physical, occupational or speech therapy; the coordination of medical and transportation necessities—our individual care plans identify and address each resident’s needs and provide essential support for his or her physical and social wellbeing.
For those residents whose health care needs exceed our resources, we will find an appropriate and safe living situation for them, and work with them and their families to arrange a smooth and dignified transition.
