What is a CCRC or LifeCare Community?
A Community with a Continuum of Care (CCRC), allows seniors the ability to “age in place” by providing, in addition to an independent living residence, access to all living options and health care services. All potential future needs are met by having assisted living, various levels of nursing care, Alzheimer’s and other dementias care, and rehabilitation, or short term nursing care, all in one location.
Residents of The Village, the independent senior living homes, have priority access to live in our other senior health care related residences if their needs change in the future.
This provides tremendous ease of mind knowing that you will remain close to friends, no matter what happens and never have to move away from our campus. In addition to the available senior care levels, our Village independent living residents are provided with a service package designed to provide a carefree, fun lifestyle. Transportation, activities, interior and exterior maintenance, flexible dining services and utilities are just a few of the services available at Nazareth.
No more need to think about traffic and how to get to a special scheduled activity in St Louis, cleaning and maintaining your home, what to cook for dinner and tracking and paying utility bills. Spend time with friends and family, or explore / rediscover an old or new hobby instead!
Our decision to move to Nazareth
When my mother was 95 years of age, in 2003, we decided that she would be better off in a senior home. She stated that she would like to go to Nazareth Living Center. We did not have any difficulty admitting her into The Assisted Living area named Gleason Hall. I lived 5 minutes away, so it was not hard to get there almost every day. She was there for 5 years and passed away in 2008 at the age of 100+. I was pleased with the way she was treated and of all the wonderful care she was given. Also, I went all through school at St. Anthony of Padua and was taught by The Sisters of Saint Joseph.
When my husband and I heard that Nazareth was considering building an independent living facility on campus, we immediately decided to look into it. We were pleased with what we heard and decided that this was for us. We were the first to sign-up for an apartment in The Village At Nazareth. When the Village was completed and Sisters of Saint Joseph of Carondelet and some of the lay people started moving in, we were not able to move in right away for some personal reasons. We did finally moved in on September 6, 2013. It will be 6 years soon that we have lived here.
We are so happy that we made this decision. We cannot have asked for better people and staff to be associated with on a day-to-day basis.
