At Glencroft there’s no need to worry about grocery shopping – we offer residents full dining services. A professional chef is employed to serve both our residents and their guests, and can meet a variety of dietary requests, such as vegetarian options or international cuisines. A registered dietician is on-staff ensuring all meals are well-balanced and meet nutritional requirements. Residents can choose to eat in the social setting of our restaurant-style dining room, or request room service to dine in the privacy of their own living quarters.
One of the major perks of assisted living is that many of your daily mundane tasks can be handled by community staff, leaving your schedule free to live life as you choose.

Caregivers are licensed and trained in a number of applicable fields - our community includes registered nurses to aid with injections and health services, and a medical director responsible for putting together health care programs for residents and assisting in their medication management. Staff members provide assistance with the activities of daily living and offer incontinence care for individuals with bladder- and bowel-related symptoms. Glencroft provides on-site hospice services and also respite care - the option for a short-term stay - perfect for recovery from a hospital visit, the interim during a caregiver’s extended vacation, or simply as an opportunity to experience a senior living trial period.
To cover health care services not provided directly on-site, we have regularly scheduled visits from outside health professionals. An on-call doctor is available for consultation and any urgent medical needs. Visits are made regularly by dentists and optometrists providing convenient oral and eye care, and podiatrists make regular visits to ensure residents are mobile and active. We also schedule regular checkups from occupational and speech therapists to aid residents in the maintenance, recovery, and improvement of skills needed for daily life.
Glencroft provides appropriate care needs to individuals with Alzheimer’s as well as disorientation or lack of awareness issues – we make sure residents are supported in living a healthy lifestyle and that no one’s needs are neglected. To discourage the wandering behaviors often associated with Alzheimer’s and dementia, our community grounds are locked and secured to ensure everyones’ safety. Staff members are specially trained in methods of de-escalating exit-seeking behaviors.
