It's never easy to realize a loved one can no longer live on their own without assistance. Making a decision about what to do is difficult for every family. The choices in the Lancaster area seem endless such as part-time senior day care services, retirement communities, assisted living facilities, personal care homes, skilled nursing home, even hospice facilities.
Retirement Homes: What is the best choice for your loved one?
The staff at Brereton Manor understands the decisions ahead will not be easy. The owner, Bill Boyd, once faced the same dilemma when he was looking at retirement communities for his own parents. Each option seemed to have serious drawbacks so he set a goal to redefine the standard operating procedure of elder care.
Bill wanted his parents to feel they were living in their own home while they received the care they needed to be assisted with the tasks of daily living. Instead of a large campus with sprawling hallways and a hotel like environment that he found at most retirement communities; Brereton Manor has a quiet living room, a comfortable TV room, a community dining room and a kitchen that looks similar to his parent's kitchen. In other words Brereton Manor feels like home. There are 25 bedrooms scattered throughout so that no resident of Brereton is far from any common area.
