Walker Methodist introduced the concept of care suites to the industry in 1992. Care suites are designed to enhance senior living through a unique model of private accommodations and space for collaboration and connection. Built like an apartment for privacy and created with socializing in mind, care suites offer independence and inclusion alike.
They can be — we have many married couples living in care suites, and we have individuals who chose care suites on their own.
Care Suites models feature personal apartments with kitchens, bedrooms, and bathrooms. They offer easy access to shared living areas as well as the larger social areas of the community itself, like dining rooms, chapels, activity centers, and fitness areas.
All care suites residents benefit from enhanced staffing levels should they need it. Areas of support include medication management, skilled nursing oversight, therapies, spiritual care, and social life.
