Tallgrass Creek's continuing care neighborhood goes above and beyond

Phase one of the new continuing care neighborhood at Tallgrass Creek will soon open its doors offering residents and their families a customized, compassionate approach to assisted living. Phase two will usher in memory care, post-acute rehabilitation and nursing care, and outpatient rehabilitation. The continuing care neighborhood at the Overland Park, Kans., Erickson Living community will promote top-notch, person-centered care based on each individual s needs in the midst of bright, open living spaces with easy access to landscaped grounds and courtyards. No matter what level of care is needed, residents will enjoy personalized physical, cognitive, recreational, and other growth-oriented activities that allow them to explore their interests and talents. Spacious private apartment suites with private baths and optional patios will be available, along with delicious, chef-prepared meals and varied dining venues so residents in all levels of care can enjoy meal schedules that work best for them and their guests. As at all Erickson Living continuing care neighborhoods, security and access will be priorities. Though Tallgrass Creek is a gated community, family members and guests will have visiting hours 24 hours a day. Stacie Shelman, Tallgrass Creek s director of health care sales for continuing care, says the neighborhood will offer an integrated, holistic approach to health care that optimizes a multidisciplinary team of professionals, a state-of-the-art facility, and a caring and compassionate staff. It s so exciting to be part of a community that provides high-quality care and strives to honor our residents and guests as individuals, says Stacey. Our goal is to meet our residents clinical needs while honoring their personal preferences, maintaining routines, and supporting and partnering with them.
