Six Reasons Seniors Prefer Senior Living at Newcastle Place

As we age, the question of senior care and living accommodations eventually becomes a topic of conversation. Many seniors choose to move to senior living communities as they age, not because they need daily assistance – although that is available – but because they are looking for a place where they can be active, meet new people and enjoy their senior years.For those considering senior living accommodations, Newcastle Place, a 52-acre retirement community, is a place where seniors can have freedom, independence and the ability to choose the lifestyle that’s right for them. Here are some top reasons why seniors prefer community living, especially at Newcastle Place:

Living now and in the future

Newcastle Place is senior living at its finest. Located in Mequon, Wisconsin, on Lake Michigan’s western shore, just minutes from Milwaukee, Newcastle Place offers multiple residential solutions in a premier setting. A full range of senior independent living residencies include apartment homes and carriages homes in a quaint neighborhood setting.

Should you require personalized assistance and supportive services, the Highlands Health Center offers daily living in a more structured setting. You’ll receive assisted living care that respects your desire to maintain your independence. The Highlands also provides around-the-clock skilled nursing care for seniors who can no longer live independently. Should you need rehabilitation after surgery or injury, our skilled rehabilitation team will work with you to develop an individualized restorative therapy plan to help you reach your prior activity levels and return to the independence of your own home.

As a vital component of the Newcastle Place commitment to whole-person health, we provide high-quality memory care suites at The Highlands for residents with Alzheimer’s disease and age-related dementia. Our nurses are highly trained and compassionate and work together to create a safe, stimulating environment that offers the freedom, security and intimate, personal care you want.

Newscastle Place’s ContinuingCare™ program provides these levels of care at a discount when compared to other types of senior communities or health care options. And best of all, you pay for these services only if and when you need them.

Making new friends and keeping active

Senior living communities are about more than health care, though. Making new friends and becoming involved in social groups and activities go hand-in-hand with an active senior community lifestyle.

At Newcastle Place, we are dedicated to ensuring you an exceptional level of choice, control and flexibility in everything you do. This is what we call our LifeSTYLE Promise®. Newcastle Place offers first-class amenities, including aquatics, spa and wellness center, campus-wide Wi-Fi, a fully equipped business center, beautifully appointed library, game room, and club room with bar. A variety of spiritual services and stimulating guest speaker presentations will keep you engaged and intellectually stimulated.

Seniors can enjoy well-manicured grounds, outdoor walking paths and scenic courtyards on-site as well as take Newcastle’s transportation into the nearby cities of Mequon or Milwaukee for activities such as golf, shopping, entertainment, and culture. The city of Mequon and surrounding area features more than two dozen parks and natural recreation areas, golf course and a wide range of sophisticated and casual dining. The Milwaukee area boasts a vibrant arts and cultural scene with one of the largest museums in the country, and the Marcus Center for the Performing Arts, which is home to Broadway touring productions as well as the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, ballet and opera. And of course there are the Packers, the Bucks and the Brewers for senior sports fans.

Whole person wellness

Our Newcastle Place team is committed to serving the whole person. Each Newcastle Place resident has access to a Health Care Navigator who will guide you in preventative wellness services such as fitness and exercise activities as well as healthy food choices so you can maintain optimum health for years to come.

The Navigator also helps you schedule health and medical-related appointments and services, including coordinating transfers and paperwork, should the need arise.

Exceptional and nutritious dining options

At Newcastle Place, every day you’ll be treated to a diverse menu that’s as healthy as it is delicious. On-site chefs provide a wide array of food choices to meet the health and wellness needs of aging adults, and nutritionists work with residents to identify any special needs and setup nutrition goals.

Newcastle Place’s innovative dining program provides flexible times and menu selections as well as a variety of dining venues, such as the Main Dining Room, Royal Oak Room and Castle Cafe’. Your monthly budget allows you to invite your family for a meal or even order carry out. And you can enjoy a complimentary continental breakfast every day in our cafe’.

Healthy options and a chef-prepared menu range from a variety of soups and salads to entrees such as Cornmeal-Crusted Bass, Veal Scaloppini and Beef Bourguignon to ravioli, roasted turkey and, of course, a delicious array of desserts.

Seniors who were not eating well before moving into a senior living community find they have more energy and their health often improves after a short period of regularly eating nutritious meals at Newcastle Place.

Forget home repairs and yard work

At Newcastle Place you can forget about yard maintenance, home maintenance, items like shoveling the driveway, and handling unexpected home repairs and emergencies. Enjoy weekly housekeeping services and top quality maintenance throughout the campus and in each residence. Less house work means more time to enjoy life.
