What can you tell me about the layout of your community? 

 

Each building at Silver Hills was built to mimic a home environment and provide safe living spaces for seniors and individuals needing assistance with activities of daily living.

Our private and shared floor plans were designed for safety while providing a cozy space with all of the comforts of home. 

  • We provide activity areas and rooms for TV viewing, arts & crafts, and reading as well as areas for visiting and private dining with the family.
  • Our designs minimize confusion, encourage social interaction, enhance visual stimulation, and provide a home-like atmosphere
  • Appropriately-placed handrails, security, and monitoring systems are in place throughout the property to ensure resident safety.

By designing our community to be more intimate, we’re better able to tailor our daily care to accommodate our residents’ individual needs, from activities to assistance and meals. 

Our smaller size allows us to maximize each day to keep our residents comfortable, secure, and above all – happy!
