As people age they often have increasing difficulty with their everyday activities. Things that were once easy to do like showering, dressing, moving around the house, running errands and shopping are suddenly a daily challenge. This does not happen overnight, nor does everything become difficult at once, and as a result making the decision to leave one’s home is often put off. Families often make this decision together when a loved one begins to experience difficulty with day to day activities.
Finding the right place requires honesty about needs and concerns, and patience to find the right daily support while remaining as independent as possible for as long as possible.
If you or someone you love needs personal care services but not round-the-clock medical care and supervision, then an assisted living facility may be a good choice.
A quality assisted living facility will offer the safety and security of twenty-four hour support and access to care. No matter the time, day or night, help is a moment away. At the same time privacy and independence are encouraged and supported. Personalized plans and Lifestyle package options ensure that individual resident’s needs are met while they also enjoy the freedom to do what they can for themselves.
Lovely secure well landscaped paths and gardens support the well-being that nature affords, moments when alone with a book or together with friends, residents will want to take advantage of being out of doors.
Food is important, and dining facilities will provide delicious meals including special menus for those residents with dietary constraints. Housekeeping services and regular linen service will also be available. Life at a residential facility is also a rich social experience, and facilities encourage socializing in many forms, all detailed on an activity calendar, keeping residents engaged in activities that promote fitness, fun and championship.
