Review: Greenwood, Indiana Senior Retirement Community: The Hearth at Stones Crossing
July 10, 2014
by Lisa (Parrett) TreadwellWhen senior clients or their adult children come to me for help in selling the family home, they often ask for advice on what retirement community in Central Indiana would be right for them.

They know that – since I am a Certified Senior Housing Professional – (a real estate agent who specializes in working with older adults) – it’s my job to guide them through every aspect of a late-in-life move. That includes me guiding the process from start-to-finish and helping the senior adult make the right choice in senior housing.

I’ve spent considerable time visiting and working with the staff and management at the Hearth at Stones Crossing in Greenwood, Indiana, a beautiful community that offers assisted living, independent living, and Alzheimer’s and dementia care housing options.

Located in the southern section of Greenwood, their apartment homes for seniors include housekeeping services, restaurant style dining, on-site nursing, scheduled transportation, a plethora of daily activities, and great, resort-style options like a beauty salon.

Let’s face it: The chief concern among many Indianapolis seniors I talk to who are considering a move to senior housing is a strong desire to ensure that their new home will be a vibrant and enjoyable place to live their lives.

What I appreciate about the Hearth at Stones Crossing is their focus on making sure that their residents indeed experience that vibrant lifestyle. As I’ve sat and enjoyed coffee with the staff – including Amber Slaughter and her colleagues Heather and Laura – I’ve noticed that their mantra for how they help residents is “Live More.” Here’s what that means:

“Our vision of Live More is achieved by adding joy, purpose and meaning to the lives of our residents. As the key motivation behind all of our services, Live More helps our residents live life at their optimal level across eight key areas of wellness: intellectual, spiritual, emotional, social, nutritional, physical, environmental and vocational.”

The personalized care at the Hearth at Stones Crossing runs the gamut from complete independence to 24/7 nursing care: you, your family and physicians decide what level of assistance is necessary.

Floor plans of the apartments at the Hearth at Stones Crossing include studio, one, or two-bedroom options. While the restaurant-style dining is a popular option for most residents, kitchens are included in the apartments for those who wish to prepare some of their own meals or snacks for visitors and friends.

The bathrooms, of course, are focused on safety with emergency call systems, handrails, and oversized medicine cabinets for convenience.

If you’re looking for a fantastic spot to call home in the Greenwood, Indiana area, I strongly recommend the Hearth at Stones Crossing. Of course, your specific needs are of the utmost importance, so if you or a loved one are just embarking on the idea of finding a new spot to call home, please feel free to contact me anytime for a chat and advice on what senior housing options in Indianapolis may be best for you.
