Atria Blankenbaker offers residents comprehensive senior living in a beautiful home situated on acres of wooded grounds. Brightly colored flowers flank the secure entryway and private walking paths, and comfortable rocking chairs provide plenty of space for residents to socialize and enjoy the fresh air. Inside, welcoming common areas to relax and read a book or play cards or a board game offer space for casual fun. The community pub is a popular space for seniors to gather for celebrations or weekly Happy Hours, while full meals are served restaurant-style in the dining room. Residents in the assisted living and memory care wings receive help with the tasks of daily living, including redirection and reminders or medication management. The memory care wing is secured with WanderGuard for resident protection and staffed with caregivers trained to de-escalate escape-seeking behavior.
