Continuing Care

A life plan.

Enso Village will be a Continuing Care Retirement or Life Plan Community. Life Plan Communities are licensed and regulated by the State of California and are attractive because one can move in and remain completely independent. However, if health issues arise in the future, one has the comfort of knowing that excellent, high-quality care is as convenient as a short walk down the hallway. And, as an added benefit, because of our licensing and our commitment to aging mindfully, Enso Village will be able to provide extensive care to residents within their home. Beyond the care offered here at Enso, residents have easy access to Healdsburg, Kaiser, Sutter and Santa Rosa hospitals.

How we plan to care.

As a Life Plan Community, Enso Village will offer a continuum of care services available to residents, including assisted living and memory support. In accordance with the principles of Contemplative Care, those services will be delivered with grace, compassion, personal engagement and an acceptance of the realities of aging.

In addition to our independent living apartments, the  community will include 30 assisted living and 24 memory care residences, along with myriad support programs to meet the future long-term needs of residents. Skilled nursing services for residents who come to need them are planned to  be coordinated with local, high-quality providers. Services will be provided in-home whenever possible to prevent the need to relocate within Enso Village. Best of all, at Enso Village, that care will be provided by team members whom you know and who know you.

What is Continuing Care?

Continuing Care Communities like Enso Village provide residents with a “continuum of care,” which typically begins with an Independent Living Residence, but also includes access to healthcare services such as assisted living, memory care, and/or skilled nursing, if and when required. 

Having access to these services gives residents the ability to focus on the beauty of aging rather than the anxiety that can come along with it. By lifting this burden off your shoulders, we hope to create an environment where stability and security are the least of your worries, giving you more time to live purposefully and peacefully at the pace of your choosing.

Importantly, for  residents, the cost of those services is partially covered by their monthly fees and will almost certainly be substantially lower than the cost of comparable care at an independent assisted living or skilled nursing community.

A contemplative care approach.

One of the key components that will make Enso Village so special is our enlightened approach surrounding care.

Contemplative care is an approach to caregiving rooted in Zen practice. This modality incorporates a partnership approach,  drawing on the transformative mutuality of caregiver and care receiver.  The emphasis in the training for this way of providing care is threefold:  Abiding Presence, Conscious Aging, and Compassionate Action.
