West Virginia has a mix of Christian assisted living facilities and secular care centers, but is seems the secular centers dominate the landscape. At least as far as online information is concerned, there are very few Christian care centers being represented. That doesn’t mean they do not exist, and it doesn’t mean they aren’t excellent options. It does mean that seniors will need to investigate carefully and reach their own conclusions about the quality of the Christian assisted living facilities.
Examples of Christian assisted living centers in West Virginia include Clarks Christian Care as well as Pleasant Acers Christian Haven. Both of these facilities are well rated and for more information, feel free to give us a call and speak to a senior living adviser at no cost.
Cost of Christian Assisted Living in West Virginia
Given the lack of specific information about Christian assisted living facilities in West Virginia, we will assume that they are not significantly different for all of the other in this state, and that should be good news. While the US average for assisted living sits at $4,000 per month, the average rate in this state is $3,750. Check out Beckley, WV, and seniors can find rates that drop even lower, to $3,250. There are pricier destinations as well, like Weirton, WV, where the average tops $4,500. In the end though, they are all reasonably priced and pretty budget friendly.
Amenities in Christian Assisted Living Communities in West Virginia
As seniors explore these “Christian” assisted living centers, they need to pay special attention to four key amenities. These are the mark of a true Christian center, as opposed to one that is more passive in following the faith or that ignores faith entirely. Stay focused on these and it shouldn’t be hard at all to separate the real from the not so certain.
Here are those four key amenities.
Christian Retirement Communities in West Virginia - Religious Amenities
- As with any Christian community, the faith finds its center in the church. This is the soul of the community and the place that bind the community into something quite remarkable. Christian communities are living things. They are responsive and giving. They are dedicated to their faith and determined to help others find the same salvation in the work of our Lord, God.
- Every faithful flock needs a shepherd to guide and protect them. They need these teachers can counselors to help them grow in faith and fight back when the temptation to give up grows. These are more than just preachers offering Sunday services. They are the very soul of the Christian community and that make then a key amenity in any Christian assisted living facility.
- Then there are the caregivers who are hopefully guided by the tenets of the Christian faith, that includes compassion, respect, discretion and humility. For true Christian, these come naturally, and they make the care these members of the team offer, far more valuable.
- Being a good Christian requires more than just attending weekly devotional services. It requires a real effort to learn, and to teach others. It requires a laser like focus on finding and nurturing a personal relationship with God. These are where activities come into play in Christian assisted living facilities, while other centers will be solely focus on fun, these center mix in a healthy dose of faith and that make a real difference.
Christian Assisted Living in West Virginia - General Amenities
You cannot go through life focused on the end of the road. That isn’t what was meant when people said, think about the future. There can be a lot of future before then end and there can be all sorts of great opportunities seniors can experience, if they will just focus on them. The future will offer many twists and turns and with a positive attitude, each one can be conquered and even enjoyed.
Assisted living centers help seniors focus on the good while dealing effectively with the not-so-good. They make the challenges little more than minor bumps in the road, rather than major potholes. They do this with a group of tasks known as ADL’s, (Assisted Daily Living), where seniors get direct assistance with daily hygiene, mobility, tasks that are impacted by limited manual dexterity and more. They are monitored for their health and medications are actively managed. And, all of the normal daily chores associated with keeping house and fixing stuff that breaks down, are cheerfully done by others so seniors can stay focused on enjoying life.
For Alzheimer’s patients, there is an additional level of care known as memory care. This is offered in sections of the assisted living facility that is more secure, more organized and less distracting. Therapies, like music and pet therapies are employed to help regain access to lost memories while helping to manage the negative emotions that often impact these individuals.
Most of the better assisted living facilities take great pride in their meal services. They offer restaurant quality breakfasts lunches and dinners, along with snack in between that seniors are simply going to love. And, they are served in the company of friends so seniors get to enjoy a dining experience rather than just a simple meal.
Living arrangements in West Virginia assisted living facilities include studio apartments, one- bedroom units and two-bedroom suites that offer seniors a space they can call their own and where they can enjoy their privacy. In some cases, and when budgets are tight, seniors can still enjoy all the benefits of these assisted living centers from the comfort of a semi-private suite.
