king's grant retirement community
If you become unable to take care of yourself, but still want to remain in your home,
options include hiring a nurse or a homecare provider to help with tasks like bathing, dressing, taking medicine or traveling
to doctor's appointments.
When staying at home is no longer possible, retirement communities, assisted
living and nursing facilities are available.
Check out our comprehensive chart of
home-care services and retirement facilities on page 26.

If mobility becomes an issue, you may want
to consider moving your furniture to the
first floor. Having your bed, dresser, and any
other items you use on a daily basis on the
main level of your home will make it easier,
as you won't have to risk climbing (or falling
down) stairs.

Situated on 120-acres of natural beauty, King's Grant is the most
affordable continuing care retirement community on the southern
border of Virginia. The campus, which includes fishing lakes and
walking trails, provides a gorgeous setting for residents.
A recognized leader in retirement living, King's Grant is a multi-year
winner of Virginia Living magazine's "Best of Virginia" in Southwest, VA.
It's the best of both worlds - independent, residential living
with peace of mind for the future.

your complimentary, overnight Staycation*.

If your doctor recommends putting equipment in your home to better assist your living
situation, consider things like hospital beds
and stair lifts. You can install trapeze bars in
your hospital bed to help maneuver and turn,
as well as keep you comfortable. Kinsey says
many people are modifying their homes for
stair lifts, as well as expanding doorway sizes
to accommodate wheelchairs and easy mobility indoors.

"If someone is going to modify their
home, talk to two or three people on advice
and quotes, as well as to get more ideas. Every home and need is different," Kinsey says.
