Carefree Living Description

Welcome to Flippo's Carefree Living! We are a family owned, pet friendly, full-service assisted living community located just 15 miles west of Mountain Home in the small retirement community of Bull Shoals. Our goal is to provide our residents with the highest quality of life possible by offering a wide range of services and amenities designed to meet their individual needs. Whether you're looking for assistance with daily activities such as bathing, dressing or grooming, or simply need someone to check in on you from time to time, we can help. Contact us today to learn more about how we can make your retirement years enjoyable and carefree! We offer a variety of services and accommodations to residents of Marion and Baxter counties. Flippo's Carefree Living is perfect for those who are looking for a short-term respite care solution. We offer private rooms that are fully furnished so you can focus on your recovery and not moving. You can stay here for as long or short as you'd like with no lease or deposit required! You'll only be charged for the days you actually spend at the location.

Assisted Living
The Activities of Daily Living, or ADLs, are the routine tasks that we perform every day. From brushing our teeth in the morning to going to bed at night, these activities are essential for maintaining our health and wellbeing. Some of the things you'll help with as a caregiver include going to the bathroom, walking around, eating, getting dressed, taking baths, and staying clean. Our care plans are designed to provide individuals with the necessary assistance to age in place.

Memory Care
When caring for someone with Alzheimer's/dementia, it takes more than the right kind of person; it also takes the right kind of atmosphere. People with Alzheimer's/Dementia not only need a safe, calming environment, they need direction and your time. At Flippo's Carefree Living, we believe that the quality of our staff and the size of our community allow us to spend the necessary time working with your loved one in an environment where they can flourish.

Respite Care
Flippo's Carefree Living is perfect for those who are looking for a short-term respite care solution. We offer private rooms that are fully furnished so you can focus on your recovery and not worry about moving. You can stay here for as long or little as you like with no lease or deposit required--you only pay for the days you are here! We work closely with several different Home Health agencies that are able to provide extensive physical and occupational therapy services to assist you on your road to recovery.

Dining
Meal times are definitely one of the best parts of the day! We take pride in all of our meals being made from scratch-- come on in and take a look (and smell) around the kitchen, any time! This is important to us because this is our home, not a restaurant. We can accommodate most special diets and each resident's like and dislike list. We love when our residents have their friends and family over for meals! There's no charge to do so, because this is their home and we want them to take pride in showing it off.

    My friend has been at Carefree Living for over a year. The transition depths of homesickness she's had only praise for the caretakers and other people living there. And I'm happy because I know she is receiving excellent and loving care.
