Guide to Retirement Living: As Life Goes On

When looking for an assisted living or memory care community for my loved one should I focus on the large Corporate Communities or smaller “boutique style” family-owned community?

At As Life Goes On, LLC, we are dedicated to providing value conscious, comfortable assisted living that you can trust in small home settings. We want to help our residents simply live better by providing assistance in a loving and caring environment, and treat your loved ones like our own. The Duymazlar family has been involved in the care and real estate business for two generations. Our father, Dr. Mehmet Duymazlar, immigrated to the U.S. as an anesthesiologist, and our mother, Joan Duymazlar, is a registered nurse. The Duymazlar’s grew up in an immigrant multi-generational home caring for their grandparents while their grandparents helped care for the youngest of the family — a truly family-centered care network. Experiencing three generations under one roof all providing care for one another enriched the Duymazlar’s lives and contributed to their desire to do better for our elders and their families.

How does your community welcome a new resident?

At As Life Goes On we have a thorough welcoming ‘move in’ process that involves the family of our incoming residents. We ask for each familys’ input answering a questionnaire surrounding the potential residents likes, dislikes, meal preferences, daily habits and much more. This will help us in pairing our new residents with other folks that they may enjoy dining and socializing with.  Our entire process revolves around supporting each resident at every stage of moving to a new home, treating them like our own family while our home becomes their home.
