From the Provider
Nestled among mature trees and beside Freeman Creek, The Allegro at Helmwood offers seniors assisted living and memory care in a relaxing, park-like setting. Private apartment homes are available in spacious studio and one-bedroom floor plans, many with a private patio or balcony. Designed with comfort and convenience in mind.
The goal of assisted living at The Allegro at Helmwood is to help where needed, while allowing seniors to maintain the highest possible level of independence.
Working together with the resident and family, our attentive staff will develop a customized care plan and provide help with such personal needs as bathing, dressing and grooming; self-administration of medications; escorts and assistance with walking; and dining.
For residents with Alzheimer?s disease or other non-reversible dementias, The Allegro offers structured programs designed to encourage individuality and support each resident?s overall well-being.
Our philosophy of care is based on building a trusting relationship with each resident, thereby fostering emotional security. Because each day and each resident is different, staff emphasizes creatvity and flexibility when assisting residents with care needs such as dining, bathing, grooming and dressing.
Put simply, we strive to meet our residents in their world, rather than asking them to meet us in ours.

I visited this facility
My wife and I have planned to downsize and prepare for whatever may comeour way. After shopping for 4 years we decided to buy a universal design patio home, but we considered and visited several independent and assisted living facitities. We searched for a coninuous living facility but found none. We liked what we found at Allegro of Elizabethtown and when the time comes, we will move there. A skilled care facility, located next door, was formerly under the same management but still gives priority to Allegro residents. A memory care unit is within the Allegro building. The staff is caring and professional. The facility, renovated about 2009, has one and two bedroom suites with rates comparable to similar facilities. The dining room serves three excellent meals each day. The activities director conducts a range of activities with at least two activities a day. An excercise facility with a wellness director is on site. Transportation to medical apointments, shopping, and group activities is included. Assistance in daily activities like bathing, toileting, dressing, etc is not included but can performed by outside caregivers, Family members are welcome without prior notice at any time. Best of all, the residents are all appreciative of the quality of care they receive.
