At each Runk & Pratt Senior Living Community, we develop an individualized service plan upon admission with resident, family, and doctor input. Weekly physician appointments, physical therapy sessions, and lab services are performed on-site. Highly trained nurses are staffed 24/7, providing immediate attention for emergency medical issues. Nurses are also available to help residents follow prescribed, individual care, and medicinal treatments throughout a normal daily routine.

Pearls of Life features Snoezelen rooms (multi-sensory rooms), an industry-leading concept that provides a calming effect on residents living with Alzheimer’s disease. Hallways integrate one-of-a-kind interactive environments where residents can draw shapes, play games, and move objects around simply by touching the wall.
Several multi-sensory life skill centers are equipped with familiar objects, such as a rotary telephone, display train set, military uniforms, as well as vintage ovens, cabinets, cribs, and washing machines that enable residents to interact, to be stimulated, and to recall every day life experiences.
All of these advances in care are designed to reduce the risk of aggressive behavior, improve overall mood, and even reduce the amount of medication needed. Studies show that the mood shift caused by the Snoezelen environment increases self-esteem, reduces inhibitions, and gives residents confidence in themselves, reducing the risk of self-injury by 75%.
At Pearls of Life at Liberty Ridge, the building itself is designed to facilitate the care of our seniors in a number of ways, including a community area called Main Street, designed to look like an old-fashioned line of shops, enclosed outdoor gardens and central patios where residents can safely enjoy sunshine and fresh air, windows and skylights throughout to maximize the natural light, and continuous floor plans so residents can walk without reaching dead ends.Residents enjoy private, spacious rooms and furnishings are classic yet comfortable, so seniors feel right at home as soon as they walk through the door.
Runk & Pratt constantly enriches the lives of our residents by keeping a calendar full of events that engage our seniors mentally, physically, and spiritually. Full-time activities directors work with healthcare professionals to ensure that the events bring true health and happiness to our residents. All of our events are designed by our trained activities coordinators to engage all of the senses and to prevent restlessness for senior’s with memory support needs.
