Independent Living

At the Altenheim, Independent Living means lovely surroundings, activity-filled days, a complete list of amenities, spacious, light-filled rooms, and the comfort that comes with a full continuum of care. Residents are provided a private bedroom and bath, three meals per day with table service, and light assistance in daily living.



Supportive Living

The Altenheim provides Supportive Living for our residents who need assistance with daily activities: dressing, personal care, bathing, medication management or assistance at mealtime. Our residents enjoy a private bedroom and bath, three delicious meals per day, personalized assistance and care.



Short Term Stays

The Altenheim offers a short-term stay to give older adults a special place to stay while a caregiver is away for any reason such as a holiday or business trip. A change of scenery is a nice break for an older person as well as the caregiver and also provides an opportunity to “try” the Altenheim before making a move-in decision.



Continuum of Care

The Altenheim is governed by a local Board of Directors. Residents are provided a full range of services, from independent living to supportive living to nursing care. By offering all levels of care and the flexibility for each resident to be at the appropriate level of care, at the correct time, means individuals can remain at the Altenheim.



Nursing Care

Altenheim offers extra care short-term or long-term. Our professional health care staff provides 24-hour nursing care as well as around-the-clock personal care. Several meal choices are provided with particular emphasis on special diets prepared to meet the medical needs of each resident.
