Wellness at Astoria
Caring for the whole person
We believe wellness means more than just providing health care. That’s why we focus on more.
LifeCycles, our whole-person wellness program, is designed to support the spiritual, social, physical and intellectual wellness of all who reside in our community. Whether it’s through dining services, activities, health care or just everyday conversations, every staff member understands and supports each dimension for all individuals in our care.
LifeCycles in Practice
Social engagement is encouraged through celebrations, family events, entertainment and special-interest clubs. Visits with pets and children help residents feel connected and loved.
Activities such as crafts, games, baking and educational classes along with trips to local events and attractions, are all great ways to stimulate the brain.
In addition to traditional weekly worship services, Activities to promote spiritual fulfillment may include meditation, aromatherapy, listening to music, volunteer projects or connecting with nature.
Physical activities like walking, prescriptive exercise, yoga or other group classes, trips and fresh-air drives help manage stress and encourage independence.
Nowhere is our wellness philosophy more evident than in our Life Enrichment Program. Through a wide variety of one-on-one and group activities, our Seasons Curriculum features fun themes for making meaningful connections and strengthening the four dimensions of wellness.

Levels of care
Many residents of assisted living and memory care require personal assistance and care. For those individuals, we offer level-of-care packages. Services offered include medication management, bathing and dressing assistance and more. Your level of care is determined by a personalized assessment performed by our Director of Nursing, in conjunction with your personal physician, if you wish. In the assessment, your needs and preferences will be evaluated. Each service is assigned a point value based on both the time and level of expertise required to complete the task. The level of care is determined by the total number of points for desired services. Up to 49 points of care (Level 1) are provided free of charge. Level 2 starts at $525 each month, and costs go up from there. Rates may differ based on location. Please reach out to your preferred community for more details.
