Assisted Living at The Chesapeake in Newport News, VA

An environment that supports a happier, healthier, more active life.

What is Assisted Living?

Assisted Living can be transforming in the life of a senior adult who needs help with activities of daily living. At The Chesapeake, residents are given the precise assistance they need to live at their highest level of independence. Our caring, highly trained staff maps out a plan of care to meet each resident’s individual needs. Plans may include help with bathing, dressing, grooming, medication administration, and more.

How can Assisted Living at The Chesapeake help?

Many older adults who struggle to live on their own gradually participate in fewer activities, socialize less, and may begin to withdraw. In contrast, Assisted Living residents at The Chesapeake thrive in an environment rich with activities that encourage socialization and interaction with others. The assurance of having needed assistance motivates and empowers residents to spread their wings and participate in a variety of stimulating activities, educational programs, social events, and outings to local restaurants and shopping centers.

Appetite can also be a challenge for seniors living alone. At The Chesapeake, we pay special attention to nutrition. Our culinary program offers a varied menu of healthy, delicious meals, and the social aspect of dining helps encourage residents’ appetites. Meal times become a much-anticipated time to converse and mingle with others.

What are Assisted Living apartments like?

Residents in Assisted Living enjoy private studio apartments with private baths. Couples’ apartments are also available, and all Assisted Living apartments can be personalized by residents with their own furnishings to create the environment they find most comfortable. Most apartments are equipped with kitchenettes, although residents enjoy the fellowship of dining with others for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.

What levels of care are offered?

Assisted Living at The Chesapeake offers four levels of care:

  • Assisted Living I serves adults who need only minimal assistance with personal care, dressing, movement and other aspects of daily living.
  • Assisted Living II provides more personal care and comprehensive assistance with routine daily living needs.
  • Assisted Living III is for residents who will benefit from individual assistance with tasks such as bathing, incontinence management, medication administration, and other services.
