You + Continuum of Care = Peace of Mind 

As a Life Plan Community, The Esquiline offers a continuum of care. That’s why Life Plan Communities are also known as continuing care retirement communities: they offer multiple levels of care to meet your health needs no matter what the future brings. The best part is, it’s all on one campus to bring you peace of mind. 

Care services at The Esquiline include independent living, assisted living, and the Dammert Care Center. In assisted living, residents enjoy private apartment homes and personalized care with activities of daily living. In the Dammert Care Center, residents who need a higher level of care live in semi-private rooms and receive nursing services from highly trained, experienced nurses.

Will I lose my autonomy if I move to a community?

Absolutely not. In fact, many older adults find that they have more freedom after the move because they are no longer burdened with home upkeep and maintenance. When someone else is taking care of the time-consuming chores you no longer want to do yourself, you’ll have a world of possibilities open to you. This is a common myth, but there are more—all of which have been debunked.
