Sometimes, empowered living takes just a little help.

When a person struggles with basic activities of daily living, living on their own may not be safe. What’s more, difficulty with tasks like bathing, dressing, and grooming may lead to isolation, and challenges with meal preparation can lead to poor nutrition. If you’ve noticed these struggles in someone you love, assisted living at Covenant Woods’ Manor East near Richmond, Virginia may be the answer.

At Covenant Woods, assisted living is designed to empower each resident’s maximum level of independence by providing personalized assistance with daily tasks. Whether it’s support with clothing and hygiene; remembering to take medications; laundry and housekeeping; or other tasks, the right help at just the right time isn’t just practical in the physical sense. It can also restore the self-esteem and sense of purpose your loved one may have lost while struggling to manage on their own. Plus, assisted living residents have access to all the amenities, dining venues, and programs offered at Covenant Woods.

“The nurses are available to answer questions at any time, medication delivery is timely, and the dietary team is just so much fun! They are all lovely people.”

Frequently Asked Questions

What is assisted living?

Assisted living is a level of care designed to provide personalized assistance with activities of daily living while empowering the resident to remain as independent as his or her abilities allow. At Covenant Woods, this combines individualized care; a comfortable, safe, and nurturing environment specifically designed to accommodate the needs of older adults; daily meals and snacks; and engaging programs and activities. In addition, ongoing wellness evaluations ensure that each resident’s care plan keeps pace with his or her changing needs.

How do I know when someone I love needs assisted living?

If you notice that someone you love is struggling with the activities of daily living most take for granted, it may be time to speak with a physician and consider assisted living. A person struggling with personal hygiene may stop leaving the house, resulting in loneliness and isolation. Trouble remembering to take medication can result in poor health. Difficulty preparing meals can lead to poor nutrition. If you notice any of the following, a physician’s assessment is a good place to start:

  • Poor mobility or an increase in falls
  • Difficulty performing tasks such as bathing, dressing, grooming, or using the toilet
  • Forgetting to take medication or taking too much or too little
  • Difficulty preparing meals
  • Noticeable weight loss or weight gain
  • Neglecting housekeeping or household maintenance
  • Loss of interest in activities previously enjoyed or other signs of depression
