Below are five most common myths about Assisted Living facilities and the realities about each one:
Myth #1: All assisted living properties are the same.
The Reality: Bluegrass Properties are residential Assisted Living Communities offering beautiful living arrangements, with a gracious style of living, a safe, secure community, friendly neighbors, and newfound freedom from daily chores.
Myth #2: There is no choice in accommodations.
The Reality: Our apartment homes offer residents a choice of two floor plans with living areas, private bathrooms, safety support bars in baths, kitchenettes, carpeting, draperies and/or blinds, complete apartment maintenance, emergency call systems, sprinkler systems, smoke alarms, laundering of bed and bath linens, and weekly housekeeping, as well as air conditioning/heating, private telephone jacks, and cable TV service.
Myth #3: The care is minimal.
The Reality: Bluegrass Assisted Living Bardstown and Bluegrass Assisted Living Elizabethtown deliver individualized care and services in a home-like environment by a well-trained staff. Our caregivers go through progressive, multi-level training to serve with compassion, while recognizing the individuality of each resident.
Myth #4: There are no activities.
The Reality: We encourage residents to be as active as they possibly can be. We design and tailor daily activities to meet the particular needs, capabilities and interest of the residents, including lectures, activities and self- help classes.
Myth #5: The food is bland.
The Reality: All four of the Bluegrass Assisted Living plans provide three nutritious, home-cooked meals daily and tasty snacks throughout the day for our residents.
