What is Assisted Living?

Residents in assisted living have as much independence as they want knowing that personal care and support services are available if they need them. The Lavan Martin Assisted Living Facility was designed to provide residents with assistance with basic daily living skills such as bathing, grooming, dressing, medication reminders and supervision for safety.

How is assisted living different from a nursing home?

Our assisted living community is different from a nursing home because we don't offer complex medical services or provide one on one care. Our facility was designed to provide a more home-like atmosphere with apartment style living.

Is there a lot of paperwork to complete?

You will have to complete an initial 2 page assessment and your physician will complete a health assessment. The Assisted Living staff will schedule a care plan meeting. At that meeting, a care plan will be developed to determine the level of assistance needed and pertinent resident information will be discussed at that time. A few more forms will be explained and discussed at that time.

For additional information, please contact the Assisted Living Administrator, Michelle Colbert Shiver, at (251) 446-4899.
