The Walking Tall program is an integral part of the Vitality Club and is designed to provide the knowledge and tools necessary to reduce the risk of falls. The reality of aging involves increased issues with balance and increased risk of falls. No community can guarantee that in all situations your loved one will not fall. Our Walking Tall program promotes increased knowledge and protocols to promote a safe environment, and will create a customized care and intervention plan to help minimize residents’ fall risks.

The special associates at Elmcroft improve the quality of life for your loved one, not only by providing assistance with daily living activities, but also by involving them in structured programming that is meaningful and purposeful.
Second Wind Dreams®
Second Wind Dreams®
At Elmcroft we know that realizing a dream can renew hope and encourage a positive outlook. That’s why one of our featured programs, Second Wind Dreams®, focuses on making our resident's dreams a reality. From reuniting with loved ones after years of separation or returning to a favorite fishing spot enjoyed years ago, to reaching life-long ambitions such as swimming with dolphins or performing in a ballet, our Second Wind Dreams® program reassures residents that, simple or outrageous, dreams can still come true.
Being a caregiver is both rewarding and taxing, but there comes a time when every caregiver needs a break. Let Elmcroft care for the person in your charge while you take some much-deserved time off. You’ll find that taking the time to take care of yourself will actually make you a better caregiver.
Meanwhile, the person whom you care for will be warmly welcomed into the Elmcroft family and have some of the finest caregivers anywhere at his or her beck and call. A respite stay is also an excellent way to see if Elmcroft might meet your needs in the future.
At Elmcroft, we try to make each meal special, whether it’s giving the best service, creating the perfect atmosphere or preparing great food. And what’s great about us is that we know that personal taste is just as important as nutrition. That’s why we offer a variety of healthy, flavorful meal options for you to choose from. We’re all about choices here. So, if you don’t like lima beans, we won’t make you eat them.
