Haywood Lodge Assisted Living Welcomes Creekside Villas
Haywood Lodge & Retirement Center is excited to announce the new Creekside Villas Retirement home in Waynesville at 465 Boyd Avenue effective July 1, 2013. Formerly known as Queen’s Retirement home, Creekside Villas continues the longstanding tradition of quality care for those needing an assisted living setting. Creekside Villas is managed by Haywood Lodge and is part of the community of care offered at each location including Spicewood Cottages located in Clyde (39 Loving Way).
Creekside Villas is a welcoming and charming family style retirement home with 20 beds available in both private and semi-private rooms. Located along Richland Creek the facility has a large yard and garden for the residents’ use and enjoyment. A rocking chair lined front porch allows for mountain views and relaxing times to visit with fellow residents, families, and friends. The living room with its brick fireplace, piano, and ample seating allow residents and guests to enjoy time together, activities, or entertainers such as church groups and local talent right in their own living room. There are even a few residents that have been known to play the piano while others enjoy a dance or two.
As with Haywood Lodge and Spicewood Cottages, Creekside Villas offers in-house therapist and physician appointments from local specialists that make ‘house calls’ so that residents don’t have to travel to outside facilities for the care, rehabilitation, and medical attention they may need. Residents are welcome to maintain their current physician relationship if they prefer. Kathy Green, former owner and administrator of the Creekside Villas facility has agreed to remain on staff with us and we are very lucky to have the knowledge and care continue under the guidance of Kathy and her staff. The continuity of resident care is very important to us.
‘Assisted Living’ facilities are different from the Nursing Homes that many of us may be more familiar with. While both are known for senior care, an assisted living facility allows for more independence for seniors ranging from still driving, completely mobile and able to care for themselves (no longer wish to care for a home, housekeeping, laundry, groceries, cooking, and utilities), to those less mobile and needing assistance with their medications, bathing, and other routine daily tasks. Assisted living facilities are much more affordable than nursing homes, about half the cost, because the assisted living residents are more independent and don’t require constant hands-on medical attention.
These types of assisted living settings help to ensure that residents can remain in their community while accessing the care they need to live comfortably, securely, and with dignity. We would love to give you the grand tour of all three facilities so you can see why we are so proud of this new addition to the services we provide.
