As the golden hues of fall dim into the grays of winter, it’s not just the landscape that undergoes a transformation but also the daily lives of our senior community. The approaching winter brings with it a chill that can seep into bones and a solitude that can weigh on hearts. For those contemplating a shift to assisted living and memory care, the period before winter is a crucial window. Bellaire at Stone Port Assisted Living and Memory Care stands as a haven, not just from the cold but also from the many trials winter can impose on seniors.

We anticipate winter’s unpredictability, outfitting our community with backup generators and emergency plans tailored to each individual’s needs.
