Are you wondering whether placing someone in an assisted living community is right for your situation?
More than 800,000 Americans live in an assisted living facility. Most of them have some basic care needs but remain fairly independent and active. Many continue to enjoy a robust life while having their needs met.
But what benefits do seniors reap from an assisted living center? Below, we’ll go into everything you need to know about how your loved one will thrive in assisted living. Keep reading to learn more and see why our assisted living services are best for you!
Your Senior Can Downsize
Often, as someone ages, it becomes disadvantageous to live in a large home.
Elderly people are more likely to experience falls and other mishaps. As they age, they may find it difficult to navigate stairs and other areas of a home.
Many seniors also enjoy the reduced cost of living in an assisted living facility. Most homes have more space than the majority of elderly people need. The associated pricey mortgages and expensive upkeep might prove more than a senior wants to handle during their retirement.
If they develop a cognitive disorder, such as dementia, they may have trouble remembering where they are in the home.
As such, having a smaller, well-laid-out home works well for many older people. An assisted living community usually has small homes with several different floor plans. You can select the one that will work best for the senior in your life.
Our floor plans come with 1-bedroom, 2-bedroom, and studio options. Some have a garage for the resident’s car. Parking is also available nearby.
As a person grows older, they may find it more difficult to keep their yard looking nice. If you or the senior in your life is tired of taking care of the lawn, assisted living is a great option.
Our facilities have professional lawn care services. That means our residents get nice, manicured lawns at no extra cost!
Finding affordable housing can get challenging for people on a fixed social security income. If you know someone who struggles to pay their home bill, assisted living might serve as the best next step.
Our homes aren’t available for sale. This, though, works in your favor. We don’t have any buy-ins. Instead, we charge a monthly rental price. For many people, this is a much more realistic arrangement. They can then budget that into their monthly expenditures and not have to worry about things like property value or paying off a mortgage.
Get Pre-Insured Buildings
At this point, you might wonder why a senior should live in an assisted living facility instead of just renting an apartment. The answer to this is simple: many different living spaces require residents to buy insurance before they move in. Then, the insured receives a monthly bill, which can tax an elderly person’s finances.
Our assisted living community has already insured our buildings. That means, in the case of an emergency, you won’t need to worry about filing insurance claims or dealing with damaged property.
Many seniors can function without a lot of assistance, but they need help with some basic things, like lawn care.
Assisted living communities exist to give seniors who don’t need a lot of care the freedom they want. The seniors are free to come and go as they please. They can also host guests and live regular, full lives.
We purposefully located ourselves next to a variety of public amenities that are perfect for those in the retirement community. Our residents have easy access to shops, walking trails, and entertainment. This encourages the seniors at our facility to live a high quality of life and keep active.
This type of lifestyle is optimal for aging people. Research shows that those who remain active often live longer and stay in good health. If the senior needs to see a doctor, there are nearby clinics that take a variety of insurance policies.
Enjoy a Social Life
Seniors benefit from having people their own age to whom they relate. In fact, many seniors seek out friendships that fulfill their emotional and social needs.
Entering a senior living community gives people the chance to develop relationships with others their age. The other residents in our assisted living facility are all around the same age. As such, residents have the chance to make connections with their neighbors. They can live a robust senior social life and take advantage of the many things to do nearby.
Assisted living facilities give seniors a safe place to live. Because we provide amenities to seniors, we’re able to make sure everyone in our community remains safe.
We’ve designed our buildings with maximum senior safety in mind. All our floor plans include toilets with ADA-approved height, making accessing the bathroom easier. We’ve also placed grab bars in the homes along with walk-in showers. All this prevents falls and other mishaps.
