Why Choose a Personal Care Home?

When it’s time to start searching for the ideal senior living setting for you or someone you love, there are many options and care levels to consider. If you’ve already started researching, you might have come across the term “Personal Care Home” and wondered how this differs from other levels of senior living, such as assisted living communities. 

Hillside Springs is a welcoming personal care home and memory care community that serves families and individuals in and around Dallas, Georgia. It’s our mission to ensure that residents receive the support they need while enjoying all the comforts of home.

Below, our team shares what personal care homes offer and why it could be the right choice for your family.

What is a Personal Care Home?

Personal care homes offer the same conveniences as an assisted living community but with enhanced levels of resident care, support, and safety. While both provide assistance with daily tasks and a comfortable living environment, personal care homes deliver more individualized care and offer a more intimate and social atmosphere. 

As a result, personal care homes allow team members the unique opportunity to get to know residents on a more personal level. This ensures that each resident is able to enjoy a customizable program that better fits their needs and abilities.

At Hillside Springs, our team understands that no two aging journeys are the same, so we work with each individual to promote care and support that is just as unique as they are. 

What Makes Personal Care Homes Different?

It’s common to see people confuse personal care homes with assisted living communities, as both provide similar support and services. However, the more intimate environment of a personal care home offers older adults the opportunity to receive personalized, one-on-one support and care in a home-like environment.

Individuals feel more comfortable and confident in their care team when they believe they see them as individuals. The more personalized their care, the more relaxed they will be, which enhances wellness.

Transitioning into any new living space can be a scary and uncertain process. You’re leaving a home where you’re comfortable and familiar. However, personal care homes ease this transition with their home-like and intimate atmosphere.

What Can I Expect at Hillside Springs?

At Hillside Springs, our community utilizes a unique philosophy called Salus™ by AgeWell Solvere Living, which concentrates on Four Components of Wellness that each hold a critical role in creating meaningful lifestyles. 

Physical: living a healthy lifestyle through physical activity and proper nutrition as a means to stay strong and flexible and limit disease and disability.

Social: strengthening existing connections with family and friends and developing new relationships to stay connected to the community.

Intellectual: stimulating minds through participation in lifelong learning initiatives and challenging, creative programs.

Spiritual: continuing the lifelong search for purpose and meaning through faith-based involvement, volunteerism, and service and enjoying meaningful pastimes. 

Personal care homes promote physical activity, mental stimulation, strong social engagement, and a supportive environment just like other senior living communities, but with a more personal and intimate approach than you would find in an assisted living community.
