The care in our nature.
Community counts, because people are naturally inclined toward connecting and making friends. We like helping each other and, when people we know and love surround us, getting over whatever ails us is easier. The Langford’s design for a continuum of care – with health services for seniors that include Assisted Living, Memory Support, Skilled Nursing and rehabilitation services – is a design built on that kind of community: No matter what your health needs may be, you can count on the community to help you live the best life you can live today. Plus, when you’re a resident of The Langford, you’ll have priority access at lifetime discounted rates for the services you need, from people you trust – and a design for living that intends to keep you living your best.
Senior health care services in College Station, TX.
The Langford is the first in College Station to provide a full continuum of senior health services. In addition to Independent Living, we offer long-term care that includes Assisted Living and Memory Support on site. Until the second phase of our development is complete, Skilled Nursing and rehabilitation will be provided nearby at Crestview, our sister community in Bryan. (Yes, on completion, The Langford will also offer Skilled Nursing services right here on our own College Station, TX, campus.)
The smooth continuum.
When you’re an Independent Living resident of The Langford, everything’s going your way. And good for you. Because ours is a community designed to support your healthy living, minimize lifestyle disruptions and keep you at your best for as long as possible – right here in your comfortable residence. But if something comes up and your robustness takes a time out, we can meet your needs with focused, supportive services. And because those services are on our campus, you’ll stay close to your community of friends, who’ll undoubtedly be stopping by to talk stocks, news or to say “Howdy” and offer wishes of good health. If it’s Skilled Nursing or rehabilitation you need, the exceptional Crestview – our sister community in Bryan – will provide it. Crestview’s reputation for exceptional senior care measures up to our standards at The Langford, and your transition from here to Crestview will be smooth and seamless – as you’d expect with two communities that know how to treat people just right.
Priority access to long-term health care at a lifetime discounted rate is the idea, because we know the best way to fully engage in Independent Living is to have an excellent plan for independence-thwarting health events. We offer health care lifetime discounts to Independent Living residents, if they ever require senior health services. Those unlimited health care lifetime discounts include:
- Assisted Living – 10%
- Memory Care – 15%
- Skilled Nursing – 20%
We also accept direct admission (space permitting) with no entrance deposit required. You’ll find Assisted Living, Memory Support, Skilled Nursing and rehabilitation at market rates.
Health Services FAQs
When you think your loved one may need more assistance than Independent Living provides, start with a physician’s evaluation. Once medical and daily living needs are assessed, our professional team will meet with you and your loved one to answer questions, provide information and help you reach the best decision for your loved one and your family. And remember: Every resident at The Langford in every level of living will have a rich array of opportunities from which they can create a rewarding, satisfying healthy living lifestyle, because we’re a healthy living community.
The traditional CCRC (continuing care retirement community) is an integrated community of services anchored in Independent Living. If residents’ health declines, they can move through the additional levels of living to meet their changing needs – into Assisted Living, for example, for assistance with the tasks of daily life, or Skilled Nursing’s wrap-around of medical and support services – or even Memory Support, when individuals develop Alzheimer’s Disease or other forms of age-related dementia. The continuum of care in a CCRC is designed to keep residents within the community as long as possible, where their social network will continue to sustain their well-being.
An MRC Healthy Living Community supports seniors with minimal disruptions to their lifestyle, offering them programs that keep them living the fullest life they possibly can for as long as they possibly can from the comfort of their MRC residences. In other words, an MRC Healthy Living Community remains focused on healthy living for each resident – even if they need Assisted Living or other health services. At The Langford, which is an MRC Healthy Living Community, we’ll help you live healthily for as long as possible – that is, how you want to live, no matter where.
For those who can still live independently but need extra assistance with daily tasks – taking medication, bathing, dressing, meals, housekeeping, transportation and other everyday needs – Assisted Living may be just what’s needed. Designed to maintain a person’s important sense of independence, Assisted Living offers the resident a team of nurses and other caregivers who are accessible 24/7.
Dementia refers to the loss of cognitive functions (thinking, reasoning, the ability to remember) that’s severe enough to interfere with a person’s daily functioning. Dementia itself isn’t a disease, though it often accompanies diseases like Alzheimer’s. Dementia is irreversible when caused by disease or certain injuries. It may be partially or fully reversible when caused by drugs, alcohol, depression or imbalances of substances such as hormones or vitamins. In contrast, Alzheimer’s disease is responsible for 60-80% of dementia (per WebMD and other sources). It’s a progressive, degenerative brain disease affecting parts of the brain that control thought, memory and language. 1 in 8 people over age 65 has Alzheimer’s, and it affects women more than men.
