Sunshine Retirement Living Adds Ashley Gardens to Network of Communities
Charleston Assisted Living Community Joins Sunshine Retirement Living’s Roster
CHARLESTON, SC (SEPTEMBER 9th, 2019) – Sunshine Retirement Living announces the addition of Ashley Gardens Assisted Living & Memory Care to its network of retirement communities focused on providing Person-Centered Care throughout the United States. With its warm climate and vibrant southern culture, Charleston is an ideal choice for retirees, and Sunshine is thrilled to offer its hallmark resort-style living to Charleston seniors.
Ashley Gardens offers assisted living and memory care services, with an experienced care team that seeks to foster independence over-dependence in a safe, private setting. Ashley Gardens combines Person-Centered Care with an extensive wellness program that encompasses the key components of health and wellness through physical, social, emotional, cognitive, and spiritual nurturing, which enables residents to live life to the fullest in a safe and secure environment.
And that environment is also a luxurious one, thanks to Sunshine Retirement Living. All of the network’s communities are designed to offer resort-style living and amenities. Ashley Gardens offers safe, comfortable apartments with multiple floor plan options. And the community’s grounds, along with Charleston’s warm weather, encourage indoor-outdoor living. The grounds include secured walking paths and well-tended, enclosed gardens, as well as a patio with comfortable benches that sports beautiful views.
To add to the resort-style feel, Ashley Gardens’ gourmet dining program is not only tasty but also designed with residents’ mental well-being in mind. Residents can enjoy 24/7 dining with nutritious, delicious food prepared with the freshest ingredients by Ashley Gardens’ Executive Chef and a team of professionals. The community’s daily menu also incorporates foods from the Rush University Medical Center MIND diet, which is meant to foster brain health. At Ashley Gardens, the MIND diet, in conjunction with the community’s many Memory Care programs, is intended to support mind health and prevent memory issues for as long as possible. Entrees are served on colored plates to stimulate appetite, and a server greets each resident individually with multiple daily menu choices.
Beyond the dining experience, residents and their families will feel confident that their needs are met with Ashley Gardens’ fully customized care options. The community offers Transitional Assisted Living for residents starting to experience memory challenges, Memory Care for Alzheimer’s and dementia, respite, and hospice care with a professional staff available day and night. Care options range from dressing assistance and personal hygiene to medication and continence management and more, all delivered in an encouraging and nurturing environment.
To make residents’ transition to retirement living easy and seamless, Ashley Gardens offers move-in assistance for maximum convenience, 24/7 staffing for comfort and peace of mind, and a full calendar of activities that support health, fitness, wellness, and socialization for all residents. Ashley Gardens also has a certified Life Enrichment Director who leads to engaging daily activities, weekly on-site social events, and fun cultural excursions as part of a researched-backed health and wellness program.
Ashley Gardens and Sunshine Retirement Community are looking forward to creating a warm, safe, enjoyable community for Charleston’s seniors.
