Enriched Housing

Enriched Housing: Living with Assistance on Long Island

Finding that next step. Together.

It’s usually a loved one who first notices. Routine activities like housekeeping, shopping, cooking and especially driving become a growing cause for concern. Though we all want to be completely independent for as long as possible, when physical abilities begin to diminish, it’s natural to need a helping hand now and then.

An enriched housing residence at the Tuttle Center provides this help in a way that’s personal, one-on-one, and that allows people to feel comfortable, secure and independent. We create an atmosphere that invites social interaction and engagement in life, with just the right amount of support.

Our licensed, compassionate staff assists with daily tasks as needed, and the many amenities available in enriched housing help these residents more easily enjoy what matters most to them.

In general, it’s best to start with a physician’s assessment. Depending on the circumstances of your situation, or that of your loved one, you can match needs to the right level of assistance. When help with daily tasks is needed — taking medicines, bathing, dressing, meals, transportation and housekeeping — an enriched housing residence can be the answer. Trained professionals provide this assistance while helping preserve an individual’s independence.

This is the idea of the “continuum” of care.
