Independent Living

Don't wait to come to NewAldaya because it's lots of fun. With 24-hour security and service options that fit my lifestyle, I couldn't ask for a better or more exciting place to live!

~Marilyn

No grass to mow and no snow to throw. We couldn't be happier about our decision to make the move!

~Eddie and Juanita

I love my independence, yet I am so close to the fun Main Street amenities that my friends and I truly enjoy!

~Cleo

I'm so grateful we decided to move here. It is reassuring to know that I no longer have to worry about home maintenance AND I have access to services and amenities right here in my new neighborhood. I love being a resident of the Glen Arbor neighborhood!

Skilled Living

When I first started my PT/OT therapy here, I had just come from the Mayo Clinic. The drive here took the energy out of me and I felt as though I took two steps back. I was pretty down. So needless to say, my first day was very tiring, but everyone in therapy was so friendly and positive that it eased my mind and I knew I could get through this.

Every day has gotten better. Everything is explained very clearly and copies of exercises have been given to me (this has helped me a lot). I've been given great advice and ideas for when I go home. I was nervous about my home evaluation but Julie made that process go very smoothly. I appreciate the items that have been given to me (shoe horn, grabber, etc.) to help me at home.

I cannot express enough how wonderful the staff is! I am looking forward to going home but will miss not working with everyone. I owe you all so much. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

~Sandy

Since the start of my therapy the staff has treated me with a respect and professionalism that makes me as a patient believe in everything that they have me do and the reason I am doing it.

They all have a great sense of humor and keep the mood light so it's fun to go to therapy. I came to them after laying in a hospital bed for 31 days, without using my muscles. They started out slow and I feel I am getting stronger every day and my motor skills are gradually returning.

One thing I know is that the staff genuinely cares about me and my progress. I am looking forward to returning to a normal life. Thanks to them and all that they have done for me.

~Tim

I was most unhappy that I fell and fractured my hip. My life is very busy and I had no time to lay around.

After three hospital days I was transferred to NewAldaya Lifescapes. That was when things changed. Therapy was started and I began to feel like I was training for something. My email to my family and church told that I felt like I was training for the Olympics, but I wasn't sure I could try to compete in it! ... I'm 86.

I can only say that the therapists did their job in dealing with each person in what they needed for their getting back to being healthy again. Much laughter helped along the way.

NewAldaya has really been a Godsend. The staff there are wonderful. They are so good to not only [our father] but to us as well. We have nothing but high praises for the facility and staff.

Wellness Center

Time for exercise class! The class challenges and works with us to strengthen our cores and to improve our balance. We stop and take deep breaths and exhale, then we are moving again! It is a beneficial time.

~Gwen Sandven (87-year-old NewAldaya Resident)

Exercise? Of course! Even if you don't feel like it. By going to class, you exercise regularly and with more intensity than just walking around in your apartment. We work on core strength, coordination, and balance, which all helps us in our daily lives. And on top of all that, we have good fellowship and a fun time!
