5 Reasons for Retiring at West Bladen Assisted Living

You’re looking forward to your retirement years, but you want to know how you can get the most out of life for this new adventure.

Are you tired of home maintenance and daily chores eating into your free time?

Have you considered the many benefits of assisted living at West Bladen?

What Is Assisted Living?

Assisted living is a type of community where you have a room or apartment that enables you to live independently but still get a helping hand if needed.

That means no need to mow the lawn or keep track of the pains and inconvenience of homeownership. It means having meals prepared for you. It means a chance to concentrate on enjoying your retirement.

Top Reasons for Retiring at West Bladen

When something feels right, you just know it. That’s the way we feel about West Bladen. Our residents enjoy a relaxing, yet stimulating, environment, full of new friends and fun activities.

We’ve outlined some of the top reasons you should consider retiring at West Bladen.

We’re family-owned and operated.

We’re not a part of some massive corporate conglomerate. We’re a family business whose owners focus on quality care and treating others as if they were members of their own family.

This means you can be assured that any concerns are being addressed in a timely and thorough manner.

After all, there’s no substitute for personalized attention.

We have a wide variety of activities.

West Bladen activities go way beyond bingo. They involve painting, music appreciation, board games and more.

Is there something you’re interested in that isn’t on our calendar of activities? Just let us know and we’ll be happy to look into it.

There are recreational opportunities nearby

If you’re ready for a scenic picnic, a hike, or even an afternoon of fishing, Singletary Lake State Park is a short drive away.

If you’re looking for a day trip, a mere hour away is the port city of Wilmington, NC and some of the most beautiful beaches on the East Coast.

So whether you’re up for some sand and surf or a reflective walk in the woods, West Bladen has the recreational opportunities you want.

We have memory care units

Maybe you’re not looking for assisted living for yourself, but for someone you love. This could be a parent, grandparent or spouse. Many of our residents are facing the challenge of living with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementias.

That’s why we have a specialized, 26-bed memory care unit that provides staff who specialize in helping those with dementia. We provide an environment that is both safe and stimulating, working with each individual resident. We carefully work with your health care team to ensure a smooth and seamless transition to our memory care beds.

We have a great ratio of staff to residents

We believe in a combination of independence and individual attention. By maintaining a great staff to resident ratio, we’ll always be responsive to your needs in a timely and caring manner.

You’ll also find that our staff members will become like a family to you. You can ask any of our residents and they will agree!
