The primary function of an assisted living community like Covenant Glen is to provide life enriching programs and amenities to keep residents as busy as they choose, while providing opportunities to meet new neighbors and friends. Learning each resident’s needs, wants and desires and selecting the services that best compliment their level of independence is our goal. Services provided include:
- Specially trained staff 24 hours per day
- Mobile emergency call system, monitored 24 hours per day
- Organized activities
- Three meals a day plus snacks
- Daily/weekly housekeeping and complete laundry services
- Healthcare management (including medication management)

While there may be health screenings and medical services routinely offered, the facility will not be staffed full-time with nursing staff or physicians. Covenant Glen will be staffed with its own employees in care staff, kitchen, administration, maintenance, activities and housekeeping.
