Additionally, the community provides options for residents and their families to choose their exact care needs and offers easy growth should those needs change or increase. Colonial Gardens offers health monitoring, medication management, as well as assistance with activities of daily living including dressing, bathing, grooming, and oral care, all delivered in an encouraging and nurturing environment. Colonial Gardens offers a range of memory care options, including Transitional Assisted Living for residents starting to experience memory challenges, Memory Care for residents with Alzheimer’s and Dementia, as well as respite and hospice care.

Colonial Gardens offers residents 24/7 dining options with a program designed specifically to support memory care residents. The community’s daily menu incorporates foods from the Rush University Medical Center MIND diet, which is researched backed and fosters brain health. Entrees are served on colored plates to stimulate appetite, and a server greets each resident individually to allow independent menu choices. At Colonial Gardens, the MIND diet, when combined with the community’s many Memory Care programs, is intended to support brain health and maintain memory for as long as possible.
To make resident’s transition to retirement living easy and seamless, Colonial Gardens offers an easy-move program that eases the anxiety associated with moving as well as financial services aimed to help residents sell their home or assist with legal matters should they be necessary.
