Many older people are basically healthy and engaged in life, but need extra help with some of their daily needs. This can cause problems, if they are alone, or do not want to burden their families. For these and many other seniors, Assisted Living at an Elk Ridge Village Active Retirement Community provides the ideal solution. Seniors thrive in these settings, because the communities offer advantages that include:
