Feel the Difference at Charter Senior Living

Jan 13, 2021

When it comes to a retirement lifestyle, what are you looking for? What dreams do you want to make a reality? What goals do you want to achieve? Whatever you want, one thing is for sure  – you don’t want a cookie-cutter experience. And we don’t want you to have one, either.

“We don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to retirement living,” says Jayne Sallerson, Chief Operating Officer of Charter Senior Living. “That’s why we help you create the lifestyle you want – and deserve. When you’re looking for an Independent Living, Assisted Living or Memory Care residence, you deserve an experience that’s different, that’s unique and that has a difference you can feel.”

What sets Charter Senior Living apart? Experience. Our collaborative team has expertise in Retirement Living, Assisted Living, Memory Care, Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing to meet your specific needs.

That experience is also felt in the Charter difference. We promise that each resident and employee will be treated as a valued, cherished individual. We ensure that everyone receives the respect and dignity they deserve. We provide a family environment that encourages socialization, wellness, teamwork and spirituality. Our entire company is dedicated to those who have selected one of our senior living communities to be a home for themselves or a loved one.

“We strive to set ourselves apart and provide the very best lifestyle for all our residents and family members,” says Jayne. “Our mission is to enhance the human spirit, and every day is a new day to make that happen.”

Serve with Heart, Purpose and Courage – and Have Fun While Serving

 At Charter Senior Living, our mission statement and core values unite us in our purpose. We have positioned our company as a caring and compassionate leader within our field, but more importantly, we strive to demonstrate our commitment to our residents each and every day.

Here are just a few ways we do that:

Our Lifestyle Programs

We know that, when you or a loved one choose a senior living community, you’re looking for meaning. Community. Identity. With this in mind, Charter Senior Living has employed Lifestyle Coordinators to enhance every day at every one of our retirement communities. We build a calendar around resident interests and ideas. This is your life to live, and we want it to be the very best it can be.

Our Dining Excellence

A great meal is more than just nutritious, quality food. It’s also the presentation, the experience, the ambiance and who we share our meals with. Our communities understand that mealtimes are also a chance to build community together, and so we offer an experience like none other. Our menus feature quality meats, starches, seasonal fruits and vegetables, breads and, of course, fantastic desserts. Beverages, snacks and fruit are available to our residents 24 hours a day. Every community has a professional chef leading the kitchen, and our friendly staff loves what they do. Our teams work to ensure that our meals are nutritious and healthy but above all, they’re delicious.

Our Attention to Quality

A beautiful life starts with a beautiful home. Charter Senior Living works every day to offer communities that are beautiful, warm, welcoming, high quality and focused on the finer things.  This is shown through our updated fixtures and furnishings, beautiful grounds and luxurious touches. We also work to accentuate special features that make each of our communities unique. No two communities are alike – just as no two residents are alike. For example, one community features special living areas that include an all-faiths chapel, a fitness center and an Italian bistro.

Our “Personal Touch” Philosophy of Care

The best care comes from a personalized approach that stems from compassion and caring. Our programs and services have been tailored to meet the individual needs and interests of our residents and their loved ones. This is most prominently demonstrated in our Memory Care communities and delivered through our “Personal Touch” philosophy of care. Such a program can only be appreciated by viewing the interaction between our professional caregivers and those residents affected by Alzheimer’s disease, dementia and other memory-related illnesses.

“I believe the biggest difference you’ll discover at Charter Senior Living residences is that we’re all about family,” says Jayne. “At every community, you’ll meet a lot of bighearted people who live, laugh and learn with our residents and families. Everyone who works with us has an innate calling to give everyone in our care – and their families – the opportunity to be their best selves. We truly admire and love our residents, and respect the stories and experiences that make them who they are. We’re dedicated to offering a homelike warmth, exceptional service and a focus on the little things that make a big difference. Our goal is always to help our residents feel loved – because we do love them.”
