What is Aviva Pembroke’s Aging in Place theory for independent living?

How does Assisted Living differ from Independent Living?
Both of these senior living options foster independence and help older adults live longer, healthier lives. The focus of independent living is providing conveniences for older adults who lead an active lifestyle and have very little to no need for support services. Assisted living offers care and support services for residents who need a helping hand with activities of daily living – bathing, grooming, incontinence, medication management and transportation – but do not require more specialized medical or nursing care.
What is Memory Care?
Memory care is a form of residential long-term care that provides intensive, specialized care for people with cognitive limitations resulting from Alzheimer’s disease or other forms of dementia. Aviva Pembroke will offer a memory care ‘neighborhood’ with specially trained staff that provide innovative, highly personalized care in an intimate, structured environment.
