Benedictine Madonna Meadows is a peaceful community for residents in need of assisted living or memory care. Divided into six neighborhoods, residents live with ten other neighbors per neighborhood in order to create an environment of friendship and comfort with the assurance of 24-hour assistance when needed. Licensed nurses and other trained staff provide personalized support with daily activities, such as dressing and bathing, and emergency call systems ensure that help is near at all times. Secured areas for residents in need of memory care are designed to promote mental stimulation and engagement in a setting of peace and security. Several indoor and outdoor common areas grant plenty of space for group events and socialization, and residents can grab a book from the library and relax in front of the family room fireplace for some quiet solitude.
