WELCOME TO Prairie Hills at Tipton

Hello! Welcome to Prairie Hills at Tipton Senior Living and Memory Care Community! My name is Jerri K Ross and I am the Executive Director. I am so thankful for the opportunity to be a part of this life enriching and beautiful community. I transferred here from Prairie Hills at Clinton and I have worked in many variations of healthcare through the years. My favorite roles have always been when I meet and work with seniors.

Our caring team of staff members show each and every day that they not only give care, they help to make each day one to look forward to! We seek to learn more about our residents by asking questions, listening and understanding the answers. We also learn from reading their “Life Story” completed with the assistance of our Activity Coordinator when residents move in with us. We love to create unique experiences through our life enrichment program that is based on individualized interests and hobbies. We offer over 250 opportunities each month to engage mind, body and spirit.

We are proud to provide the highest level of quality, care and value. Our residents enjoy the independence they desire and the health support they need. We provide you and your loved one with the comforts of home and the peace of mind that you desire.

At Prairie Hills of Tipton, we consider it a privilege to be your first choice for senior care. Please join us for an event or drop in for a tour at any time, our doors are always open!

Assisted Living

At Prairie Hills, our Assisted Living neighborhood represents a calm and peaceful place where you can live your life and leave your worries behind! It is the ideal solution for seniors who value their independence, yet need some assistance with daily living, or perhaps just don’t want to live alone anymore and are looking for a greater sense of security and community.

At Prairie Hills, we understand that the quality of your life is inextricably linked to your overall health and well-being! Our approach to wellness is very proactive and ensures that our residents’ needs are always fully taken care of. Prior to joining our Assisted Living program, each resident will receive a comprehensive health assessment. A detailed health history is also taken. The wellness team will then work directly with each resident (and their family and doctor) to create a wellness and care plan based on individual needs. This allows the care providers to work closely with each resident and enables them to quickly identify any small changes in behavior routine. This keeps residents stronger longer and crises at bay, providing peace of mind for everyone.

At Prairie Hills of Tipton, we have a robust activity and social calendar, including outings and events that are specifically planned around the wants and needs of our residents. Assisted Living at Prairie Hills is like living in a large family home and having someone there for extra help when you need it most!  Visit us today for a complimentary tour and meal and find out why we are the premier assisted living community in Tipton.

Memory Care

At Prairie Hills we are leaders in the field of Memory Care (Alzheimer’s and other dementias). Our proprietory program, called “Moments®”, was developed with the assistance of several long standing experienced members of the dementia care community in both the US and Canada, and is based on many accepted and prevailing practices which are known to reduce symptoms of dementia and reduce the use of psychotropic drugs. We continually incorporate the extensive data and cutting edge research of leading organizations such as The Alzheimer's Society, Women's Brain Health Initiative and many others in an effort to provide the best possible Memory Care for our residents. Our goal in the Moments® Neighborhood is to connect with our residents and support their families through a disease process that takes so much, but makes us stop... and truly live in the present “moment”.

Our Moments® Neighborhood is specifically designed to soothe and engage residents at all levels of functioning and dementia.  Please call us for more information and to find out how our Memory Care program can help you and your loved one.
