Senior Living Frequently Asked Questions

At The Village of Mercy Creek, we want to ensure that you get all of your questions answered before you make a decision. That is why we have provided some of the most common questions we get at our senior living community. Browse our senior living FAQs below.

What is Senior Living?

Senior living can offer a variety of housing and healthcare options for aging adults. Unlike nursing homes, many senior living communities offer an active, enriching lifestyle for retirees. Our senior living community provides a low maintenance, independent lifestyle with access to care as needs change, making The Village of Mercy Creek a great option for retirement living.

What is Independent Living?

Independent living is focused on removing the hassle of home maintenance so that you can spend your retirement years doing what you love. Our independent living community offers a wide array of activities and amenities to support the hobbies that bring the most joy to your life. By removing the responsibility of maintaining a home, independent living residents have the freedom and flexibility to spend each day in harmony.

What is Assisted Living?

Assisted living residents get to maintain their independence while receiving the support and care they need with daily activities such as bathing, getting dressed, medication management, appointment reminders and much more. Our assisted living community promotes a worry-free lifestyle for residents by celebrating their independence and supporting their needs every step of the way.

What is Respite Care?

Respite care is a short-term care option for seniors that allows caregivers to take a break and tend to their own needs. Respite stays offer all the same benefits of a senior living community, without the long-term commitment.

What services and amenities are included?

Whether you are an independent living resident or assisted living resident, the Village at Mercy Creek offers a variety of wonderful community amenities. From restaurant-style dining to transportation and daily activities, learn more about all of our services and amenities here.

When is the right time to move to a senior living community?

Making the move to a senior living community is a big life change and it can be difficult to determine when is the right time. Factors such as home maintenance, proximity to family members, social opportunities, access to care and cost of living can help you decide when to make the move.
