This is a multiple level community just south of Mockingbird, near SMU. The majority of its residents are from the immediate neighborhoods of Highland Park and University Park. It's owned by a wonderful local company, Telesis!, who own and manage some of the best facilities in Dallas. The building is old and has been updated; it's appearance is gracious. The rooms are various sizes, most with small kitchenettes, some have a view of the inner courtyard. Monticello has residents who are independent, needing little assistance except meals and transportation. Most residents are in assisted living areas. The upper floors are for memory care and for those who need a great deal of assistance, just short of nursing home care. Monticello recently lost its long time activity director, a huge loss. The administrator and many of the staff have been there many years, so there is continuity of staff. For people with a certain background, this is almost ideal. The food is poor. Kay Paggi, GCM, LPC, CGC, MA, is in private practice as a geriatric care manager and is on the advisory board for the Emeritus Program at Richland College. She has worked with seniors for nearly 20 years as a licensed professional counselor, certified gerontological counselor, and certified geriatric care manager.

    The Benefits of a Break

    It's important to recognize that taking a break from providing care can be a positive step for both the caregiver and their loved one. Short-Term Stays are perfect when family caregivers are away on a vacation or business trip or just need a short break from caring for the senior in their life.

    Short-Term Stays are also an option for seniors who want the extra security of additional assistance during an illness or while recuperating. Many of our permanent residents decided to move into Monticello West after experiencing life here during a Short-Term Stay.

    Our Short-Term Stay residents are able to experience many of the benefits of Monticello West. One of these benefits are three delicious, well-balanced meals served daily in an elegant dining room featuring a variety of menu choices and snacks that are available throughout the day. They can also join in a range of social, educational, devotional, and recreational programs including scheduled group trips to local restaurants and stores. Dedicated, well-trained team members are available 24-hours a day to provide personal assistance with daily needs which may include bathing, dressing, personal hygiene, assistance with eating, mobility, medication management and more.
