Carefree Living in a Quiet Suburban Setting at Elmcroft of Wharton
Our senior living home has been part of the beautiful Wharton community since 1997, and was recently renovated. Nestled in a quiet residential neighborhood, our relaxing, homelike atmosphere, scenic views, personalized activities and amenities, and an exceptional care staff create a lifestyle of comfort and convenience. Our compassionate caregivers are dedicated to residents’ happiness, well-being and peace of mind, and each resident is treated with dignity and respect. 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. Shared and private apartments are available. Menus feature multiple choices of chef-prepared meals served restaurant-style in our dining room or as room service, as needs arise. Fun activities are planned according to the interests of our residents. And when residents want some peaceful quiet, our community gardens, courtyard and comfortable indoor gathering spaces are just right for reading or contemplation.
What really underscores carefree living at Elmcroft of Wharton 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. 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, many of whom have been with us for 10 years or more. From tenured management and specially trained caregivers to professional support personnel, the people who work here really care. Our 24-hour resident care staff and registered nurses, as well as our culinary staff, housekeeping and activities coordinators are completely devoted to making our residents feel 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 fitness classes, live musical entertainment, barbecues and parties.
