Carefree Living in a Homelike Setting at Elmcroft of Lorain
Our senior living home has been part of the beautiful Lorain community since 1998. Residents enjoy our spacious apartments, homey atmosphere and opportunities to stay active and socialize with other residents. All maintenance and housekeeping is included, so days are spent enjoying life, not doing chores.
We take our residents’ preferences into consideration in every way. Our community is pet friendly, so dogs and cats are welcome. Private or shared apartment options are available for assisted living residents and memory care residents. Menus feature multiple choices of chef-prepared meals served restaurant-style in our dining room. Fun activities are planned according to the interests of our residents. And when residents want some peaceful quiet, our gardens, courtyard and comfortable indoor gathering spaces are just right for reading or contemplation.
What really underscores carefree living at Elmcroft of Lorain is our capability to meet the needs of our residents, even as those needs change. Our assisted living staff are specially trained in the full range of personal care skills. Our dedicated memory care neighborhood offers the same personal care support, with the added focus on the special needs of adults with senior dementia. That means our residents can enjoy as much independence as safely as possible, as long as possible.
Respectful, Compassionate Care
One of the many things our residents compliment us on is our staff. From tenured management and specially trained caregivers, to professional support personnel, the people who work here really care. Our 24-hour resident care staff, culinary staff, housekeeping and activities coordinators are completely devoted to making our residents happy and at home.
When our residents need a little extra help throughout the day and night, our assisted living staff are specially trained to provide the considerate and compassionate service that helps them thrive. We provide help with day-to-day tasks like incontinence and medication management as well as dressing, bathing and dining. And we’re there with support for safe engagement in fun activities like barbecues and parties, outings, gardening club, happy hours, live musical entertainment and trivia.
