Which Retirement Community Is Right for You?
Americans are living longer than ever, and lifestyle and care options are springing up everywhere to accommodate seniors. With so many available choices of retirement communities, it’s difficult to know which one will be right for you.
One of the distinctive differences in Carnegie Village is our full continuum of care. Carnegie features independent living along with several levels of care all on one campus. The advantage is residents are provided with the health care they need for life without having to leave a familiar community. From independent living and assisted living to skilled nursing, short-term rehabilitation and memory care, residents have access to a variety of amenities, programs and services, and they’ll never need to relocate.
Independent living offers freedom and choice.
Independent living is designed to honor your preferences and choices. If you’re able to take care of the activities of daily living such as bathing, dressing and medication with minimal or no assistance, this is the lifestyle choice for you. However, when you live at Carnegie, you can contract a home health care agency for assistance whenever you need it. This keeps you in your independent living apartment for a longer time.
Within our luxurious community, you can choose from a variety of independent living residence floor plans. The maintenance-free lifestyle gives you more time to spend enjoying the impressive amenities. You can create a masterpiece in our art studio. Relax in our well-stocked library. Play cards in the game room. And be pampered in our spa and salon. You’ll have more freedom to renew friendships and revisit past hobbies.

You can be as involved as you choose to be.
Assisted living, an ideal balance of care and independence.
As life progresses, there may come a time when you’re confronted with mobility or other health issues. Assisted living is designed to provide help while respecting your preferences. It’s an ideal living option when you want to feel secure and remain active and social.
Assisted living communities offer all the same services as independent living – from housekeeping and on-site maintenance to dining and laundry services. As part of the monthly rent at Carnegie, you’ll receive extra help with bathing, dressing and grooming. We’ll also help with medications management. Best of all, you’re privileged to have access to all the luxurious amenities, interesting programs and inspiring services offered within our independent living community.
The distinctions that make assisted living unique include 24-hour care, three prepared meals a day and tailored care plans. Upon deciding to move to Carnegie, an individualized care plan is created for you. The plan can be adjusted, depending on any changes in health or mobility.
Apartments are modified throughout to address mobility and safety issues. Emergency response systems, wider doorways, walk-in showers or tubs, and safety bars ensure convenience, safety and comfort. The environment was designed to make you feel relaxed, cared for and secure with all the warmth of home.
Memory care in a nurturing environment.
Those with Alzheimer’s, dementia and other forms of memory loss can take confidence and comfort in our compassionate memory care community on campus. With a focus on quality of life, personal growth and safety, residents at Carnegie are treated with the utmost respect and kindness while experiencing a sense of purpose and pleasure. Guided by the on-site medical director and clinical staff, memory care residents are continually monitored, and families are informed every step of the way. Our innovative senior memory care program adapts to your loved one’s physical, emotional and intellectual needs throughout their journey. We welcome you and your family to participate and join in the activities with your loved one.
Rehabilitation and health care on campus, too.
It’s convenient to have so many levels of care on the Carnegie Village campus. We even offer short-term rehabilitation. And Lotus integrates high-quality conventional health care with holistic wellness programming.
Our senior rehabilitation center uses specially designed therapy practices to ensure you or your loved one exercise safely, no matter the age or physical condition. We incorporate strength-building exercises using HUR™ equipment designed to enhance the recovery process. In addition, with LiteGait equipment and training, our patients and residents improve mobility and strength in a fall-safe environment.
For long-term stays, you’ll feel secure about your loved one thanks to 24-hour skilled nursing care and choices based on their taste preferences. From a yoga studio to the healing gardens, our unique approach to therapy includes indoor and outdoor spaces designed to promote well-being and happiness.
We welcome you to come in for a private consultation about your needs or a loved one’s needs. You can tour all our living accommodations and get your questions answered.
