Assisted living – Everyone knows about it and sooner or later may have to face it. With the aged adult population on the rise, senior living is on the top of the menu. The U.S. is projected to have more than 72 million aged adults by 2050. That is a lot of people that are going to need some help, and many that will be unable to live alone.

Spanish Fork is home to one such assisted living home. Beehive Homes has been serving the Spanish Fork area for 20 years. Tucked into a neighborhood and designed inside and out like a home, it is almost unnoticed by passersby. “That’s what sets us apart,” said Dennis McGraw, local owner and operator of the Spanish Fork, Salem and Payson Homes.

“The Beehive Home philosophy is different from the the big box-type assisted living facilities. It’s not an easy decision to leave your home, but if you choose to, why not go somewhere familiar, that feels like home? That’s what we have – that’s what we want, and the quality of care is next to none. We only have 13 to 18 residents in our different homes; it allows us to really focus on our residents and their quality of life,” McGraw said.

Beehive Homes of Spanish Fork has recently renovated and added on to its home, creating an open concept inside and enhancing safety features such as fire sprinklers, alarm systems and wider hallways. “We want this home to be a viable option for the next 20 years.” McGraw said. Beehive Homes was voted number one in Assisted Living Homes in Utah County for 2016 in the Daily Herald’s Best of Utah Valley contest. The Beehive Homes Spanish Fork location is at 858 E. 100 South.
