Assisted Living

A vision comes to fruition


… To create a place where seniors could live safely, comfortably, and thrive in the company of others; a place that could be home for those who didn’t want to stray far from their roots, and for others looking for a family-like environment. So came the inspiration for Glasswater Creek of Plainfield.

The phrase “family-like” can be overused when talking about senior communities, but Glasswater Creek is a perfect example of how residents and staff really do become family to each other. Those who live at Glasswater Creek are the parents and grandparents of people the owners and caregivers pass in the grocery store aisles. There’s tremendous accountability and sense of responsibility attached to that.

Glasswater Creek provides a high-end lifestyle experience with the affordability and payment options that make it a viable choice for everyone. Every detail – from the clean, modern furniture to the artwork and other décor – creates a minimalist, yet cozy and hospitable, atmosphere. Bright, natural light floods the hallways and rooms through large windows, giving an airy, breathable ambience.

When you first see the large, four-story building rising up, it conjures a feeling of natural appeal. The exterior offers an organic blend of warm and inviting color. As you enter the bright, airy lobby, you are greeted by a “living wall” that plays backdrop to the reception area. Earthy tones are complemented by vibrant pops of color in the décor. The open concept design affords a clear view of the large dining area and café snack bar. You can actually feel the quality of the building itself.

And, easy access to the elevators makes the additional three floors a non-issue.

As an assisted living community, good healthcare and aid is an important emphasis; skilled quality healthcare is there when residents need it. The staff focus on getting to know every detail about each resident’s needs and their daily regimen. They learn what makes them feel their best – not only from a healthcare standpoint, but from a personal standpoint. These personal details help make residents feel comfortable, secure, and well-cared for at all times.

Those who live at Glasswater Creek can choose from private studio or one-bedroom apartments with kitchenettes, spacious bathrooms, and an easy-access emergency alert system, if and when needed. Meals are nutritionally solid and delicious, with personal preferences kept in mind for each resident. The community also offers a long list of included amenities to maintain a laidback lifestyle.

We know that one of the most important things for a happy life, especially for seniors, is staying as physically and socially active as possible. Here, the opportunities for socialization in a fun and friendly atmosphere are unlimited; residents can participate in whatever level of activities they choose, and as often as they’d like.

Resident activities include anything from movie nights (complete with the large recliners!) in the theater room to shopping at the on-site country store. There are many areas throughout the community ideal for chatting with friends, visiting with family, and playing cards and other games; there’s even a library and computer room for those who prefer some quiet time to read or use the internet. Small and large groups gather in the recreation room to play interactive games. For those who like to exercise, a fully equipped fitness center is open for all to enjoy. And the on-site beauty salon and barber shop keep residents looking and feeling their best!

After opening in November of 2019, Glasswater Creek has become a premier assisted living destination for Plainfield and surrounding areas. It’s a place you have to visit to fully appreciate, and the friendly staff is always open to welcome visitors.
