What Gentle Steps Offer:

We offer a warm homelike environment where residents may choose a private or semiprivate room. Each room is furnished with a single bed, a dresser, a mirror, chair night table and lamp. In an attempt to customize the activity for each resident, the assisted living manager gathers information to get an understanding of what activities the potential resident enjoyed or currently engages in prior to move in. Group activities include Bingo, word games, Art and craft, music, Current events discussion and walks.

Gentle Steps Assisted Living staff will assist with activities of daily living such as feeding, bathing and continence management. Gentle Steps Assisted Living collaborates with area hospice organizations to provide palliative care to our residents to facilitate aging in place.

When I realized I needed to move Ervin from the nursing home I immediately thought of your home. My friend and neighbor, Mable, was very happy there and raved about the place. Mable was demanding and a difficult person to please. My thought was, if Mable liked the place it must be good.
