As they age, many people feel that living in their current home or with family is the best option for them to retain their independence. But doing so has become challenging in today’s world where getting out and about carries with it restrictions, rules and risks. Life Plan Communities, on the other hand, can offer seniors a richer lifestyle by combining socialization, stimulation and support in an all-inclusive setting.
One such Life Care Community is St. Catherine’s Village in Madison, Mississippi. Located on 160 picturesque and wooded acres, St. Catherine’s Village provides the right care at the right time through independent living, assisted living, memory care, and skilled nursing—all in a protected environment.
As one of Mississippi’s preeminent senior living communities, St. Catherine’s Village has numerous measures in place to minimize health risks while providing high quality care and much needed social interaction for its residents. That’s because studies have shown that staying socially active supports a senior’s overall well-being by reducing stress and anxiety and lowering the likelihood of depression, which often stems from isolation.
Since the start, St. Catherine’s Village’s response to the pandemic has been swift and well-orchestrated to minimize impact within the community. Today, the staff continues to demonstrate its ability to grow and adapt to the changing environment to achieve positive outcomes. They have made exceptional efforts to keep residents engaged and connected to family and friends with countless life-enriching activities and events like music, art and devotion offered in a safe, fun and relaxing manner. Support groups also are available as are chapel services to nurture residents’ spiritual lives.
For physical health, the Life Plan Community provides exercise classes along with wellness programs. An added benefit at St. Catherine’s Village is that residents can experience the outdoors. Lakes can be enjoyed with fishing and passive recreation while views of them from indoor spaces are maximized as much as possible. Walking paths are available and accessible for all, too.
Becoming a Life Plan Community resident allows seniors to direct their own futures and better plan for life’s uncertainties. As such, they can move from independent living to assisted living to nursing or memory care as needed all within the comfort and familiar setting of St. Catherine’s Village. Knowing they will have a smooth transition as their level of care changes with age brings comfort to both residents and their families.
If you or a loved one are 62 years of age or older, St. Catherine’s Village may be the ideal senior living opportunity for today and in the future.

St. Catherine’s Village, an award-winning senior living Life Plan Community in Madison, Mississippi, is celebrating the holiday season by offering new skilled nursing and memory care residents special rates through the end of the year.
In the spirit of giving, St. Catherine’s Village is offering memory care assisted living in Campbell Cove at the basic assisted living rate and has reduced the entrance fee option by offering savings to those who enter into a life care contract by December 31, 2021. With life care, new residents can lock in the assisted living rates so as they transition to higher levels of care, their rates will reflect assisted living versus skilled nursing care.
Campbell Cove offers a protected, comfortable ambiance and activity-focused care for individuals with Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia. The secure building accommodates 36 residents in three color-coded wings, each with a common living room, dining area and 12 furnished private bedrooms. The residential wings join together in a large multipurpose area with an arts and crafts room, recreation center, country kitchen, and living room.
This thoughtful architectural design minimizes obstacles and emphasizes way-finding cues and circulation paths to guide people from one place to another. The small yet distinctive neighborhoods reinforce familiarity while common areas are available to support family-size gatherings. Outside are secure landscaped patios and a walking garden so residents and their families can enjoy time outdoors in a safeguarded setting. Campbell Cove is licensed as an “Alzheimer’s Assisted Living” community and has received “Exemplary” recognition for its person-centered programming.
Seniors who need 24-hour care can save with special holiday rates in skilled nursing at Siena Center, also located on the St. Catherine’s Village campus. These accommodations include private and semiprivate rooms for 120 residents in an environment that promotes dignity with compassionate, person-centered care. Siena Center has repeatedly been voted a “best nursing home in Mississippi.”
Offering a staff-to-resident ratio that exceeds state requirements, Siena Center delivers support beyond the physical to bolster emotional well-being. Activities coordinators plan engaging recreational, social, cultural, therapeutic, spiritual, and enriching activities on a regular basis, too.
Residents must be new to St. Catherine’s Village and move in by December 31, 2021 in order to qualify for the holiday specials at Siena Center and Campbell Cove.
Unparalleled services and homelike environments are the hallmark of St. Catherine’s Village. The gated property is located on 160 picturesque acres and is the first retirement community in Mississippi to earn accreditation by CARF-CCAC. This “commitment to excellence” seal signifies that the campus exceeds the standards established by the only international accrediting body for CCRCs.

As we navigate through the second year of a global healthcare crisis—one that is seeing new COVID-19 variants threaten the delicate balance we’ve achieved between face-to-face interaction and safety—the toll it’s taking on our seniors remains a concern. Without socialization and stimulation, our physical as well as cognitive and emotional well-being can deteriorate as we age. That’s why Life Plan Communities that provide these services are taking on more importance than ever.
