Our Services

Independent Living

About half of United’s residents are fully independent, but prefer the convenience of living within a community where home maintenance, housekeeping, dining, transportation and security are provided. Many residents enjoy independent living with a little assistance with daily tasks or medical care.

At United we believe that independent living is more than just having a beautiful suite and fine amenities. Our rich programs and activities are designed to help residents stay independent longer. Our active living approach addresses the physical, social, emotional and spiritual needs of each individual. Innovation in programs comes from our residents as well as our specially trained staff and community partners. Resident-led study groups, professional artists in the studio, and discussions with leading university faculty are examples of the depth and breadth of United activities.

Assisted Living

United prizes the individuality of every resident. That is why we begin with a customized assessment of support service requirements, so that each resident’s specific assisted living needs are provided for from day one. We also follow up to make sure the level of health care support is appropriate.

United’s care team at each community is headed by a full-time Registered Nurse, supported by 24-hour Licensed Practical Nurses and Health Care Aids. The team also includes a clinical pharmacist, visiting doctor, physiotherapist, massage therapist, and medical laboratory services.

Our full service model can handle whatever refinements need to be made. Residents can access medication management, bathing and dressing assistance, escort to meals and activities, and any other personal needs that require one-to-one assistance. Because we know that the cost of senior assisted living is often a major concern, our residents only pay for the specific services they use.

United community programs provide socialization, recreation and wellness activities that keep our residents engaged, entertained, and fit, physically and mentally. Programs give residents an opportunity to express their creativity, take part in fall prevention exercises, keep their minds sharp through puzzles and word and trivia games, and enjoy in-house entertainment as well as trips to shows, museums and more. There is also time for private activities such as reading, painting, creative writing, yoga and movies.

United Minds (Memory Care)

United Minds is an innovative program offered exclusively at United communities. It is designed to provide a safe, nurturing environment where seniors with dementia and other cognition challenges can enjoy a positive life experience.

Recognizing that dementia is progressive, our program is a solution-based philosophy which works with the individual’s skills, passions, and interests. Our memory care programs are designed to slow progression and enhance quality of life. United residents are defined by what they can do, not what they can’t do.

Individualized Life Review and Customized Programs

Based on current brain research, United Minds is personalized for each resident. The comprehensive individualized life review identifies strengths on which to develop a customized plan of action to help functioning at the highest possible level.

Customized programs include a mix of active engagement activities aimed at cognitive fitness, as well as some that are simply for pleasure. Activities aim to strengthen a variety of intelligences such as spatial, musical, math-logical, linguistic and kinesthetic.

Safety and Happiness

United follows current research in supporting the integration of residents with dementia with other residents. United Minds activities increase the ability of residents with dementia to participate in overall community activities.

The necessary individual support, stimulation, environment and monitoring enable residents with dementia to live in safety, while maximizing the potential for community involvement.

Staff and Education

United Minds gives five-to-one and up to one-to-one staffing depending upon the needed support and nature of the activity. All staff are specifically trained in therapeutic strategies in recreation, and undergo continual education and training.

In partnership with Diversified Leisure Services, United designed train-the-trainer support teaching modules to support resident programming needs. Education and strategic knowledge is recognized as an important component in supporting residents demonstrating cognitive decline. The modules, embracing inclusive learning, address the needs of the whole community by expanding the educational opportunity to all staff.

United Cares (Private Care Services)

United’s care team at each community is headed by a full-time Registered Nurse, supported by 24-hour Licensed Practical Nurses and Health Care Aids. The team also includes a clinical pharmacist, visiting doctor, physiotherapist, massage therapist, and medical laboratory services.

A customized assessment of service requirements and regular follow-up, together with our full-service care model ensures that changing needs are met. Our residents only pay for the specific services they use.
