Each home has a beautiful, fully-equipped kitchen complete with an island for preparation of the morning meal. The dining room is set-up to accommodate the residents of each house – whether in a wheelchair or a captains dining chair.
Our living rooms are an instant welcoming place for our residents to share with loved ones and each other. Here they gather in front of a beautiful view out picture window that overlooks our landscaped entry or they can watch television on our Big Screen Plasma TV. With plenty of recliner and seating choices, you are sure to feel welcome while relaxing together.
Our newly constructed homes feature private rooms that allow your loved one to decorate and be surrounded by their treasured belongings. Residents are able to bring their own furniture from home, or we have a variety of pieces that will truly make them feel like they are home away from home.
Welcome to Veranda Senior Living
If you are seeking an alternative to a nursing home for your loved one, a smaller home-like setting for Mom, one with around-the-clock nursing services, we have two Home plus properties in Wichita. Each property has four 3,600-square-foot homes, with a living room, family room, dining room, kitchen, and eight private bedrooms, and all four homes surround a clubhouse where residents have lunch, dinner and meet for activities. The feeling is nothing like a nursing home.Large nursing homes can sometimes be very confusing to those suffering from memory loss. Assisted living facilities often cannot offer enough assistance. As the progression of any dementia-related illness mandates increased medical attention for our residents, we will work with, and encourage, families to identify care that can be brought into the home, thereby allowing the resident to remain in this, their home. Our care is centered around the concept of aging in place — Veranda Senior Living our residents are our focus and a part of our family. Our Home plus setup is similar to Assisted Living facilities because we offer socialization in the clubhouse and we offer private rooms with vanities and water closets in the homes.However, what gives a Home plus the advantage over an Assisted Living facility is the staffing and setup. Technically, Assisted Living facilities can accept the same type of residents as Home plus, but Assisted Living facilities are setup to provide care to anywhere from 45-60 residents with a staff ratio of 1:15, 1:20, or even 1:25 at night. Therefore, their residents have to maintain a certain level of independence because Assisted Living Facilities do not have adequate staffing to assist with the basic tasks of everyday life, “the things we normally do…such as feeding ourselves, bathing, dressing, grooming, work, homemaking, and leisure.”As a nursing facility, Veranda Senior Living can provide regular long-term care and just assist residents with activities of daily living until they pass away. However, Veranda can also provide all the components of “skilled” care that you find in traditional nursing homes The only difference is that we provide these components, such as therapy, wound care, etc…, mostly through third parties.
Veranda Senior Living is a new Home Plus facility, which can function as an Assisted Living facility or a Nursing Home. In fact, our care ranges from assisted living through end of life, including all levels of dementia. The main advantage to choosing a Home plus is — no matter how our resident’s care changes or increases, we can meet their needs.Schedule a personal tour of one of our homes: Call (316) 771-7585.
