Wesley Manor

Review by Strong Woman

Atria Springdale was a nice community. While I was there, I was not able to see any interaction between staff and residents. The room that was available at the time was considerably smaller than others I'd seen.

Information About Senior Living Option in Louisville

As both the seat of Jefferson County and the largest city in the state, Louisville has approximately 740,000 residents. First established as a major shipping port in 1778 by Colonel George Rogers Clark, this thriving, history-filled metropolis is home to the largest Victorian-era neighborhood in the country and over 120 public parks. Louisville enjoys all four seasons with hot summers, where average temperatures range from 90 to 100°F, and winters that produce about 87 days of below-freezing temperatures annually. Louisville senior living gives retirees the chance to explore many area attractions and historical sites in a thriving, urban city.

Louisville Attractions

Louisville is the home to many renowned historic sites, museums and modern shopping centers. Senior living in Louisville allows easy access to famous attractions including Churchill Downs, the annual site of the world-famous Kentucky Derby thoroughbred horse race. Popular area day trips included touring the local Bourbon makers Jim Beam and Heaven Hill Distilleries, and sports fans enjoy visiting the Muhammad Ali Center as well as the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory. Antique shoppers love visiting the Derby City Antique Mall, which has more than 100 dealers, and the 11-day Kentucky State Fair, where seniors receive half-price admission, is an event not to be missed.

Louisville Senior Activities

Louisville Metro Parks Senior Services operates both the Flaget and Wilderness Road Senior Centers, where adults enjoying Louisville senior living can take part in a range of programs and activities. Events at these centers include the summer corntoss tournament, weekly archery classes and the "Great Balls of Fire" billiards tournament. Along with services offered at the two senior centers, social and athletic programs for mature adults, such as fitness classes, dances and card tournaments, are regularly held at all the community centers in Louisville. In addition, the annual Fifty and Over Games feature events for all seniors, including shuffleboard, aquatics and cornhole competitions.

Louisville Medical Facilities

In Louisville, there are five medical facilities that have been named a “Best Hospital” by U.S. News & World Report, and four of these hospitals are ranked as high-performing in the care of elderly patients. Norton Hospital, a 610-bed medical facility, received high scores in gerontology, cardiology and heart surgery, as well as diabetes care. Louisville senior living residents enjoy access to the Norton House Calls program, which has advanced nurse practitioners who make home visits to seniors. Other notable area medical facilities include Baptist Hospital East, winner of “Best Hospital” at the 2010 Best of Louisville awards, and the Jewish Stroke Care Centers, which provide stroke patients with round-the-clock emergency neurologists and advanced stroke care treatment.
