PLAINFIELD — Members of the staff at Sugar Grove Senior Living in Plainfield pride themselves on creating a enriched living environment for seniors.
Julie Zmijewski is the leasing director for Sugar Grove. She said everyone on staff pitches in to do whatever is needed.
“When I’m not out on appointments I pitch in just about anywhere,” she said. “I drive the bus and in fact I was just helping out in the dining room.”
Sugar Grove is a licensed residential community and has a 24-hour a day nursing staff.
“We have a strong team,” she said. “They are warm hearted people who get to know the residents and their families personally.”
Sugar Grove has an extensive list of amenities including walking paths, schedule transportation, fitness center, and ice cream parlor.
Sugar Grove offers “Select Your Care” approach which allows residents to live life on their own terms. The community offers three types of community living — active retirement, assisted living, and memory care.
“Seniors don’t have to give up their freedoms to live here,” she said. “We try to enhance their lives.”
The facility offers maintenance-free, active retirement in either a spacious garden home or private apartment. Garden homes feature a fully equipped kitchen, relaxing sunroom, and landscaped yards. They are adjacent to the main building and restaurant. Washer and dryer hookups are provided and garages are available. All utilities are included.
Private apartments in the main building provide a home-like setting for those who may need assistance with personal care and daily living activities. Being under the same roof allows residents to be within steps of many amenities, including the theater, fine dining, and recreation.
Sugar Grove also features a home-like setting for seniors who may prefer the assisted living setting. They may include assistance with daily activities, such as medication management, bathing and/or dressing. For added piece of mind, there is an emergency response system provided.
