Today’s assisted living communities offer high-quality health care services in a comfortable, safe environment. Plus, with a wide array of expanded amenities, from hair salons and daily housekeeping to nutritious dining and wellness programs, these communities ensure the highest quality of life for all members.
In fact, research shows that seniors thrive in these attractive, non-institutionalized and less restrictive environments. These communities ensure you are maintaining the highest level of independence possible and that you are happy, healthy, and receiving just the right amount of daily assistance needed to continue to thrive.
For seniors who don’t require the higher level of care provided in a skilled nursing home, assisted living communities offer peace of mind that — day or night — help is available should it become necessary. While of course downsizing from a long-time home can be a challenge, seniors residing in assisted living communities generally adapt quickly to their new lifestyles. After making the move, they enjoy all the benefits of the amazing assisted living services and amenities available to them.
Some of the top ways assisted living can improve quality of life include:
A healthier lifestyle. Assisted living communities specialize in providing senior health and fitness programs to keep members physically fit. These programs are often led by staff or professionals who focus on the specific abilities and needs of seniors. Plus, you’ll enjoy three nutritious meals each day, which can be customized to individual dietary needs to ensure optimal health.
Safe and comfortable living accommodations. Assisted living communities are designed with seniors’ unique needs in mind, such as offering wider doorways and hallways for easier accessibility. Keep in mind that modifying your current home so you can move about safely and easily after mobility has become limited can be an expensive endeavor. Plus, if an accident such as a fall were to occur, help would arrive in just minutes.
All current and future healthcare needs are attended to. One of the most important benefits of assisted living is simply knowing that should your health needs change, the level of care you receive will adjust, too. For example, if you happen to require a hip replacement surgery, you can remain on the same campus in the skilled nursing center while you recover and receive physical therapy to regain your independence.
Maintenance-free living. When you move into an assisted living apartment, you’ll receive help with some of those housekeeping tasks that may have become difficult, like cleaning the bathroom or doing laundry. All exterior maintenance is taken care of, too, so no more worrying about doing yard work on a hot day. You’ll have more time to spend on the activities that bring you the most joy.
Opportunities for social engagement. Continue to build relationships and find new friendships with those who share similar interests by joining in on the wide array of social events and activities offered at the assisted living community. These communities recognize the importance social interactions have on your overall health, so daily and weekly activities are always offered.
