Our specialized program, Magnolia Trails™, goes beyond the typical management of Alzheimer’s and other types of dementia by providing care for the whole person–mind, body and spirit. Our caregivers work with families and their loved ones’ health care providers to create a unique plan for each resident.
We tailor the days to meet seniors where they are at each moment. From daily interactions and activities to the environment and food, every aspect of the experience we provide is centered on the resident.
Sometimes called a respite care or rehab, temporary stay is available for seniors who need extra support and monitoring for a short period—such as recovering from a surgery or injury, or while a caregiver is away.
This is also a great way to see if a senior living community is right for you. You’ll stay in a spacious, private apartment and have access to all our community’s amenities and services throughout your stay.

Frequently asked questions about our care options
Independent living offers the advantages of independence paired with an active social life and assistance when it’s needed. You enjoy the convenience of living in an apartment or condo, along with the benefits of planned community activities, amenities and optional support services like housekeeping, laundry and more. There are no property taxes to pay or unexpected home maintenance costs to cover. If needed, light clinical assistance is available from outside agencies or private caregivers.
Assisted living communities are for seniors who could benefit from assistance in their daily activities. This could include housekeeping, meal preparation, laundry services, medication assistance, or help with bathing, incontinence care or getting dressed. Seniors in assisted living can maintain their independence for as long as possible. Yet, they have the peace of mind that staff are on call 24/7 to respond to their needs or help in an emergency.
Memory care facilities, also known as dementia care communities, provide a comforting environment for seniors with cognitive challenges such as Alzheimer’s disease or dementia. Apartments and common areas are secured to enhance safety. There are more employees available to help provide specialized care for residents of memory care than at an independent or assisted living community.
There are many factors that affect pricing. This includes the type of apartment, such as a studio, one-bedroom or two-bedroom apartment. However, the cost of senior living at our community in Columbus begins at $2,250 for independent living, $3,950 for assisted living and $5,825 for memory care per month.
Moving to a senior living community can help you save money! Expenses that are usually included as part of the monthly rent include utilities, basic cable and Wi-Fi (in some communities), groceries, meals, dining service, cleaning/housekeeping, maintenance, transportation services, and of course, activities to keep you entertained! There are many options available to help pay for independent and assisted living, including long-term care insurance policies, life insurance conversions, bridge loans and more.
At our community, staff are on-call 24/7 to respond to resident needs or emergencies. We offer social activities, meals, support with chores like housekeeping and laundry, medication management and help with tasks like bathing and getting dressed. Residents generally have their own apartments, although some communities offer shared apartments to make them more affordable.
Many senior living communities offer on-site care, like physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy, through partnerships with care providers, as well as home health care and hospice services. Senior living communities cannot provide clinical services like IV therapy, wound care and 24-hour nursing supervision.
Respite care, also known as temporary care, refers to a short-term stay at a senior living community. The stay ranges from a few days to a few weeks in a furnished apartment with access to community amenities and services.
We offer this option for seniors in need of temporary residence. That could be due to a caregiver’s absence or a recent illness or injury, or even just for those who want to try out our community before making a permanent move.
I like everyone here. The workers are so nice to me. I have made friends with all of the residents. I like to play bingo! Eleanor V.
