Elmcroft’s Signature Programs are life enrichment programs designed to celebrate our residents and their stories, while meeting their daily health and wellness needs. Learn more about our Signature Programs below.
Enriching ActivitiesLife is meant to be lived. Our enriching activities celebrate our residents’ unique personalities while keeping health and wellness top of mind. As part of our program, we develop an individualized wellness profile and program of daily activities for each resident. Plus, we work to expand our residents’ horizons with our special dining events. Each month, we provide cultural activities that include savory culinary delights from near and far.
Fall PreventionAging often comes with problems with balance and a risk of falls. Along with providing a safe home for our residents, we also help our residents help themselves prevent falls. As part of our Fall Prevention Resources, we work with each resident to help them better understand their own risk for falling and provide training and tools to help them move about safely.
Making Dreams Come TrueIt’s never too late for our residents to realize their hopes and dreams. From reuniting with loved ones, reaching a goal like performing in a ballet, visiting a favorite spot from years gone by, or having a longed-for adventure like a hot-air balloon ride, our program makes our residents’ dreams come true.
Dining at Elmcroft of SellwoodChoice is part of the senior living lifestyle at Elmcroft. Our menus are inspired by our residents’ preferences, special diet and personal care needs. We understand their preferences because we meet with residents regularly to learn what they like and to listen to their suggestions about menus. Plenty of choices are offered at each meal, from original culinary creations to traditional dishes. Plus, we mix it up regularly with special theme parties and chef challenges to keep the mealtime experience fresh, new and exciting.
An Engaging & Enriching Experience
Each month our residents travel to an exciting, often exotic, location without leaving home. These special events bring the sights, sounds and tastes of different locales right to Elmcroft.
During these events, the menu features tasty delights from the represented region. It’s during these special programs that we often find conversation turns to travel experiences near and far.
Restaurant-style dining means there are plenty of menu choices offered at each meal, from comfort food and home-style offerings to gourmet fare. And our dishes feature plenty of fresh and locally grown ingredients – just like a fine restaurant.
Residents appreciate our well-appointed restaurant-style dining room where attentive table service makes meals a social occasion. But we also do casual dining events too, like outdoor picnics and barbecues, as well as special meal events like birthday parties and holiday celebrations.
Fresh Ingredients for Healthy Eating
Many of our residents grew or raised their own food or bought it from local farmers. The food they put on their tables was fresh, local and literally farm to table.
Elmcroft is proud to serve fresh, delicious meals, often with ingredients from local sources. The food we serve includes fresh seasonal ingredients that contain higher amounts of nutrients like antioxidants.
