Included in Inspirit’s monthly Accommodation and Service Fee is up to 1½ hours of care per day, per apartment. Our assisted living services that may be provided to each resident are flexible, depending on individual needs. Assistance with activities of daily living is monitored by the Coordinator of Care. Some residents may require assistance with bathing, dressing, grooming, and/or mobility to and from the dining room and Inspirit activities. Some residents may just like to have their apartment cleaned or their laundry done in their in-suite washer/dryer.
Other services may include having beds made, pictures or drapes hung, re-arranging furniture, garbage removed, changing batteries, mail picked-up, or perhaps to have someone shop for groceries. All services are all-inclusive in your monthly fee (with the exception of cable, phone, and meals). Inspirit is staffed with an overnight emergency response team and PSWs are on duty 24 hours a day to assist residents.
If someone is interested in living at Inspirit but requires more care than is offered in our monthly Accommodation and Service Fee, additional personal care services may be purchased over and above the up-to 1½ hours of service per day.
A balanced and nutritious diet assists in maintaining optimal health. Inspirit’s Chef works with residents to understand their individual nutritional needs, dietary restrictions and preferences. Three nutritious home cooked meals are prepared daily using fresh, seasonal ingredients. Picnics, barbecues, themed dinners, birthday parties and special holiday meals also happen throughout the year. Inspirit’s meals are generally served in the dining room, however, if you are unwell, we are happy to bring your tray to your apartment for you.
Inspirit residents have the option of eating breakfast, lunch and dinner in their own apartments or in the dining room for only $3.95 per meal. Discussions are held with the resident to determine the frequency of eating the prepared meals in the dining room. Based on this discussion the resident is charged the appropriate rate for dining, however, we are also flexible to your needs. Don’t feel like cooking today? Call down to our Chef ahead of time and a place will be set for you at the table!
In addition to the social and recreational activities that residents may pursue with their own circle of friends, Inspirit provides a Coordinator of Recreation who encourages residents to join in activities that promote their social, physical, intellectual and spiritual health.
