What makes AmericanWay different?
Your priorities are our top concern. AmericanWay staff work closely with you and your loved one, family members, physicians and friends to develop a personal care plan. The neighborhood-friendly size of our homes ensures staff are able to follow-through on that plan. Our well-trained staff continuously work together to build personal understanding and knowledge of each resident's needs and preferences. Thus, an effective, positive support system is created for your loved one and his or her family.
Also, AmericanWay's homes in Portage are among the first assisted living homes in the area to specialize in the care of residents who have Alzheimer's, dementia, or other age-related memory loss.
Through her involvement, writings, course presentations, workshops, and most of all, her innovative management, Ms. Nowak has advocated for recognizing and developing the potential of all seniors, no matter what their situation may be. Home environments and programs developed under her watch received national, state and local recognition. More importantly, the lives of residents and their families were enriched with new therapeutic approaches, meaningful activities, fun events and educational programs.
Janis and her team of talented administrators, managers and caregivers bring to AmericanWay their strong belief in individualism, independence, voice, vitality, pride, open doors and endless possibilities. That's the AmericanWay!
Creating senior living environments in which individuals' spirits are known and honored...
Places in which people are able to grow and flourish...
