When a loved one is searching for support to continue living independently while having access to daily help, many families turn to an assisted living community.
While the services each resident might receive can differ, there is almost always a common goal for the family – to discover the solution that will also improve quality of life.
Assisted living services
Not all assisted living communities are alike, but the following basic amenities and services are typically available:
- An accessible community and residence
- Assistance with daily tasks
- Healthy dining
- Activities and social events
- Scheduled transportation
- Safety and security features
Assisted living and quality of life
While the above features can make life easier for many older adults, there is more to achieving a fulfilling life than nutrition and a helping hand. Reaching far beyond the basics, take a look at how Bruceville Point stands apart to their residents.
Quality of life for residents at Bruceville Point
At Bruceville Point, we don’t label our community as independent or assisted living. Instead, we believe in providing the services needed for our residents to live independent and full lives – and to offer them support when needed.
We begin by providing spacious apartments for our residents to call home. Daily life is rich with choices including multiple venues available for dining, a fitness center and the expertise of the full-time fitness director and engaging with our activity team to offer a wide variety of adventures.
But our philosophy of achieving an enriched life goes far beyond the commonplace. The following paints a picture of daily life at Bruceville Point.

Assisted living services offered at Bruceville Point
The following are a few of the features you’ll discover at our community:
1. Assisted living as a service
We view assisted living as a service, not as a place. Our residents who need help can continue with the life they have created as there’s no need to move into a different community – and they can usually remain in their existing apartment. We don’t categorize our residents by their abilities or need for assistance. They don’t want to be segregated just because they may now need help with bathing or managing their medications.
By bringing assisted living services to them in the privacy of their apartment, our residents continue to live full lives in the community, surrounded by friends and staff who are like a second family. They receive the help they need without sacrificing the life they’ve built.
2. Priority on independence
Bruceville Point residents appreciate knowing assistance is available when needed but not being labeled as someone who now requires help. They’re building a life much larger than that.
Services are tailored to meet their individual needs and ensure they can continue living independently, engage in activities they love and pursue new interests without the worries that often come with living alone.
3. Services provided as needed
Another differentiator you’ll discover at Bruceville Point is that we support all of our residents in the services needed as well as when they need them. If your loved one has an injury or is coming home from surgery, the extra services provided may only be for a short period of time. And if services are now needed daily, you can rely on us for that as well.
4. Social companionships and camaraderie
The negative effect that loneliness and isolation can have on the physical and emotional health of an older adult has been well documented. One of the more significant advantages of Bruceville Point is the opportunity to get to know the other residents and form genuine friendships. Whether it’s enjoying each other’s company at happy hour or during an activity, lasting friendships are common at Bruceville Point.
5. It’s always the resident’s choice
While most assisted living communities will provide healthy dining or a monthly calendar of activities, we offer much more at Bruceville Point. For example, you’ll discover three different dining venues and a wide menu selection.
We also take it a step further when it’s activity time. Not only do we think outside of the box when creating a variety of choices for our residents, but we actively recruit them to be a part of the team and take the lead in creating what they would like to see.
6. Peace of mind for residents and their families
Imagine the improved quality of life for residents and their families when they’re no longer worried about living alone. Older adults often avoid discussing the fear of what they would do if something happened and they were at home alone, such as a fall or injury.
Along with the reassurance of knowing someone is there if needed, adult children who found themselves as primary caregivers appreciate returning to their roles of sons and daughters and enjoying the time now spent together.
7. Financial predictability
It can also be a relief when your loved one’s financial future becomes more predictable. While no one can see into the future, it can be beneficial to know the estimated budget for monthly care, housing, meals and activities. The uncertainties that often come with home ownership, unexpected repairs and separate caregiving costs can typically cause a rise in anxiety.
