CCRC Launches New Home Health Program for Independent Living Residents

Empowering Seniors to Age in Place: Monarch at Home, a Revolutionary Continuing Care Retirement Community Program

Monarch at Home, a new home health program offered by Monarch Landing, a continuing care retirement community located in Naperville, IL, is designed specifically for independent living residents who require assistance and wish to remain living within their apartments. The program allows residents to stay in their units longer by providing them with the necessary support and services.

The Director of Monarch at Home, Mychelle Benton, stated that this service is tailored to meet the needs of independent living residents who require assistance but do not wish to leave their homes. The program offers traditional services provided through outside agencies but with a more cost-effective approach. For instance, Monarch at Home offers visits lasting 15 minutes or so as opposed to the one-hour increments typically charged by outside agencies. This can save residents money while still receiving the care they need.

According to Associate Executive Director Kelli Cox, Monarch at Home also provides care companions who can assist residents with outings, personal care, domestic chores, and other tasks they may struggle with. Additionally, because there is always a nurse available on site, Monarch at Home can coordinate medications and provide injections, wound care and more if needed. Caregiver companions are carefully matched with residents to ensure it’s a good fit for both parties.

Monarch Landing staff members staff Monarch Landing and are subjected to thorough background checks and adhere to rigorous guidelines. This ensures that residents receive high-quality care from skilled professionals who are dedicated to their well-being.

Monarch Landing is owned and managed by Harrison NY-based Senior Care Development and is an equity partner with Life Care Services. Other CCRCs have also expanded their offerings to include home care services like Monarch at Home.
