Rose Senior Living
Rose Senior Living, a new concept in retirement living, has chosen Carmel as the next location for its ground-breaking product. Rose Senior Living-Carmel will open a beautiful and innovative new facility at 1285 Fairfax Manor Drive (located just off Old Meridian & Main Street) in spring 2018. Offering exceptional independent and assisted living, and memory care, this community has not only amazingly appointed apartments but a service-rich offering of programs and amenities.
Rose Senior Living has designed this community to create an environment that engages and encourages active living. This will prove true both within and without, as the building is strategically located in a new urban-concept neighborhood with intergenerational apartments and condos, new hotels and restaurants, and a lake and park setting just steps from the community. It is also conveniently situated near downtown Carmel’s Arts & Design District (with its expanding number of shops and restaurants), and is a mile from the famous Monon Trail.
Within this exquisite, facility residents will find a layout that allows privacy while also encouraging social interaction. Rose Senior Living offers a full array of amenities and programs, including: a fitness center; an on-site salon; and, a studio theater appropriate for cinema as well as worship and educational presentations. In addition, there’s a bistro with indoor and outdoor seating, a rooftop garden and party room, and several clubrooms, meeting and social areas for residents and guests. A robust schedule of activities will keep residents engaged, interacting and social. Stephanie O’Sullivan, sales and marketing director, describes the atmosphere that Rose Senior Living intends to create as, “…a community within the Carmel community, with a full array of services, entertainment, and educational offerings.”
“And, it’s our apartments that set us apart. They each feature designer finishes and contemporary touches,” continues O’Sullivan. Both the independent and assisted living units have full kitchens with major appliances, quartz and cultured marble countertops and ample storage and closet space, (memory care also features the same finishes). Independent floor plans vary from one- and two-bedroom to two-bedroom with a den – all with a patio or balcony, and select apartments with fireplaces.
The star-feature of the community will be the signature dining provided by Unidine, a national leader in culinary services. Unidine and Rose Senior Living are committed to the exclusive use of fresh ingredients and from-scratch cooking. So, all soups, sauces and salad dressings will be made by-hand and rolls, muffins and cookies will be baked in-house. Local and organic produce will be sourced and used as often as possible.
The Rose Senior Living strategy is to provide an exceptional living experience at the best value. Unlike other high-end senior living communities, Rose requires no exorbitant entrance fee. Leases are month-to-month, allowing residents flexibility in their lifestyle choices.
In addition to a variety of floor plans, Rose Senior Living offers an impressive menu of health and supportive services… depending on each resident’s specific needs. With licensed staff on-site 24/7, all residents can receive help when it is desired or required. And, Rose is the only local provider that includes 28 hours of services for assisted living residents in their monthly rent. And, all memory care services, programs, meals, and rent, are included in one monthly price.
If you’re 55 or older, seeking a new lifestyle in an environment designed to keep you young and active while providing services that make life a little easier, stop buy or call Rose Senior Living today.
Senior Solutions Consulting, Inc.:
Specializing in Obtaining Veterans and Medicaid Benefits to Pay for In-Home Care, Assisted Living or A Nursing Home
If you or a loved one are concerned about the high costs associated with long-term care now or in the future, Medicaid and Veterans benefits (VA) are available to help cover some or all the costs of in-home care, assisted living or a nursing home. Benefits programs are not just for the poor anymore. All taxpaying citizens who meet the eligibility requirements are entitled to receive benefits.
Senior Solutions Consulting has been Central Indiana’s only firm specializing in Medicaid nursing home and Veterans benefits since 2000. Over the past 17 years, they have secured nursing home benefits for over 1,000 families and have helped over 1,500 veterans and spouses receive VA benefits.
Myth: I have too much income or too many assets to qualify.
Reality: In most cases, assets can be protected, and veterans or their spouses can be approved in a timely manner.
MEDICAID NURSING HOME BENEFITS
Myth: Medicaid can take my house, my car, my savings and all my possessions.
Reality: There are several rules that allow for the protection of the majority of a person’s assets. Medicaid can pay for the entire monthly cost of a nursing home facility, doctor co-pays, medications, dental, vision and other expenses, less a portion of the applicant’s fixed monthly income.
Wesley Young, a member of the Senior Solutions Consulting team, says, “Our company is dedicated to obtaining VA benefits for our clients. We work closely and personally with the local VA office to quickly obtain an approval for our clients. As long as a veteran is eligible, we have a 100 percent success rate in obtaining benefits.”
Whenever you are working with a governmental agency, you can count on a maze of forms and procedures to gain eligibility. You can count on Senior Solutions to give you all your available options at our free consultation.

Testimonial: “I am more than pleased with the work done for my mother by Wes, Matt and the entire Senior Solutions group. It’s been the best investment I have made in my role as her primary caregiver. They were able to navigate the complexities of the approval process. Due to their expertise and services, I am able to provide her with her care without the headaches and red tape of figuring out how to successfully ascertain her benefits.” – Jeff French

A Unique Home Care Approach: The Balanced Care Method
There is no single explanation for how and why some people live so much longer and have more active years than others. But there is a place where more people live longer and healthier than any other place on earth: Okinawa, Japan. Scientists have been studying this group of seniors to see what could be learned from their methods in order for others to live longer, more productive lives. Home Care Assistance developed the Balanced Care Method™, a revolutionary approach to senior care, based on these studies.
The Balanced Care Method™ is unique because it focuses as much on quality of life as on longevity, emphasizing healthy nutrition, physical and mental exercise and a purposeful and calm lifestyle. All Home Care Assistance caregivers are applying this method with the clients.
A high-fiber, plant-based, low-protein diet that emphasizes fruits, vegetables and foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids and flavonoids promotes good health. Home Care Assistance caregivers encourage healthy eating by preparing nutritious meals while taking into account dietary preferences and restrictions.
PHYSICAL AND MENTAL EXERCISE
Active seniors are happier and healthier as they age. The caregivers are trained to encourage regular physical activity and mental stimulation and are sensitive to any individual limitations. These activities
help to delay memory loss and muscle loss and to encourage independence.
PURPOSEFUL AND CALM LIFESTYLE
Seniors with a calm and purposeful lifestyle are better equipped to avoid stress, disease and symptoms of depression. Home Care Assistance caregivers bring meaning and purpose to seniors’ lives by engaging them in their favorite topics, hobbies and activities. One of the primary challenges of aging is a sense
of isolation and withdrawal, particularly when mobility issues or difficulty driving creates barriers to socialization.
Home Care Assistance caregivers provide companionship and a natural partner for the activities that seniors enjoy, allowing them to maintain their independence and quality of life. Michael Rothenberger, president of Home Care Assistance, emphasized his company’s focus is on providing the highest quality of care for their clients and on building relationships with the clients and their families. Rothenberger and his staff treat each client as a member of their own families.
Home Care Assistance has been serving Hamilton, Boone, Hancock and Hendricks Counties for the last five years, providing award-winning, one-on-one support to senior adults so they can live safely and independently at home. Rothenberger and his staff offer several levels of quality care services: 24/7 live-in caregivers, hourly caregivers, in-home respite care, in-home dementia care and hospital care.
