When you Google “assisted living near me” or “senior living centers near me”, the results can be overwhelming. As you start the journey to finding the right assisted living community for your loved one, you will start to ask the question, “What makes you different from other senior living options?”
Kenwood Care Assisted Living Centers have been owned and operated by Victoria and John Sessler for 25 years in the Howard County area. Kenwood Care has four residential senior community houses: Maple Hill in Laurel, MD, Autumn Hill in Fulton, MD, Glen Hill in Dayton, MD and Pine Hill in Laurel, MD. Each of our homes offers a beautiful residential setting, and they are designed to provide a home-like atmosphere.
Major differences between Kenwood and other assisted living facilities are how we staff our residential senior homes. We have one of the highest resident-to-caregiver ratios in the state, offer top-notch medical care, and have an Alzheimer specialists on staff. In each of our assisted living homes, we have approximately 16 residents and 6 certified staff members per home for a 2.5:1 resident to staff ratio. The resident to staff ratio at our senior living centers is 3 times better than Maryland state requirements ensuring that our residents get the care they need when they need it.
At Kenwood Care, our staff live in our assisted living homes. Having live-in caregivers in our senior living communities allows them to really get to know the residents. We find this is especially important for our Alzheimer’s and Dementia residents because they see familiar faces every day which helps them to avoid confusion. We have very low turnover of our caregivers also allowing for continuity of care in our affordable assisted living homes. Our residents and staff form a bond and a friendship which help them truly feel at home.
We are also proud to provide overnight awake care. You can be assured that your loved one will have the care they need 24 hours, 7 days a week when you choose Kenwood Care as your affordable assisted living home.
