Independent living at Grace Estates by Lakeside, gives older adults a place where they can go about their day as they please or take advantage of the community’s activities. Grace is conveniently located in Emmetsburg, across from Five Island Golf Course & Lake. Think of a senior living community as a place with a built-in network of neighbors where you can nurture existing friendships and foster new ones. Seniors often lead longer and happier lives when they’re in a community.
Residential living communities also offer added conveniences such as:
Delicious, prepared meals.
Activities for the mind, body and spirit.
Home and lawn maintenance.
When is the right time to move?
To move into our senior life apartments, you must be physically independent, which means you're able to get around without assistance, manage your own medications and go about your day without supervision.
One of the biggest mistakes you can make, is moving to a senior community after health issues have become overwhelming. An advantage of moving into a community as an independent living resident is that you’ll be part of a family of neighbors and staff who will be there for you if and when a health need arises.
Many residents have moved up through the various levels of care at Lakeside, and by the time they need 24-hour skilled nursing, they already have a whole group of friends who are able to visit and support them. It’s wonderful to have family, but family cannot always be there when you need them. But here, you will also have your community family.
In our Life Plan Community, you will live the rich, purposeful life you’ve imagined, knowing that even if you require more assistance in the future you’ll remain an engaged, valued member of this place that you will call home.
At Grace Estates by Lakeside, we offer supportive services to help you stay active, engaged and purposeful in your life. Assisted living provides a little help with activities of daily living, and skilled nursing offers great support and 24/7 health care should you ever need it. .
People enjoy opportunities to stay active, eat well, connect with neighbors and achieve personal goals right outside their apartment door, every day.
