Enhanced Living

Vista Terrace Enhanced Living

Growing older and needing some assistance should not require people to lose their autonomy and ability to determine their own schedule and activities. The Small House model at Vista Terrace is a holistic, person-centered approach to provide seniors with Enhanced Independent Living in a personal, elegant manner. It is a step forward from standard assisted living in more ways than one. Studies by the Commonwealth Fund and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation show that residents in innovative senior care models similar to Vista Terrace enjoy higher satisfaction levels, less physical decline, and a consistently more positive outlook.


At our Vista Terrace residences, we give members of the North Hill Community attractive perks and benefits rarely experienced at other senior living locations. The “Small House” model puts services and common spaces close to residents. Members of the household can independently enjoy these amenities without having to worry about getting there. Each “Small House” includes 11 private apartments. In the center of the households you will find elegant open spaces, which are designed to be shared among the household neighbors, including a living room with fireplace, dining room, den and other social spaces, engendering a sense of community.

Among the many activities residents at Vista Terrace can enjoy:

  • Reading to grandchildren in the den
  • Current events discussion groups in the living room
  • Facetime and Zoom with family across the country
  • Eating meals at your leisure in your household’s open kitchen and dining room
  • Learning painting from an experienced artist in the sun room
  • Enjoying the sunset from the outdoor patio

Our Care Partners

Assisted living communities have aides who are task-oriented, stopping in at set scheduled times. Vista Terrace Care Partners are always available for support when members of the household desire. This support is not only for activities of daily living. Your Care Partner is a member of the household; they partner with you to help you take full advantage of the abundance of living opportunities and provide the specialized care you expect from the best.

Clinical Services

Our nurses can support residents with medication administration, including helping with insulin or B12 injections, performing dressing changes for small wounds and other basic nursing functions that are not allowed in assisted living facilities. These services are a standard and integral part of the Enhanced Living experience here at North Hill to ensure that you get the care and assistance you need, when you need it the most.

Senior Care Services

The senior care services offered at Vista Terrace go beyond daily living activities. Residents wake up to the smell of fresh bacon and coffee brewing in the small house kitchen, and can enjoy three delicious meals daily in a friendly, community environment.
