Come see what makes us special.
If you’ve started the process of finding the right senior living solution, how do you find the right setting and care where your loved one will thrive? With so many options from which to choose, it means starting your search understanding your needs for a senior living community. Your search should be narrowed to those senior communities that are committed to helping your parent or loved one age successfully. That means, in addition to the quality of care, you should be evaluating the social atmosphere, the quality of food and the commitment to maintain mind body and fitness.
There are many important factors when choosing a senior living community as your parent or loved one’s next home. Ultimately what is most important in choosing a senior living community is that it feels friendly, safe, and comfortable. What is your gut feeling? The bottom line is that the right facility for you is the facility where you feel most at home. This is a personal preference. Would you prefer a smaller, cozier environment or would a larger community bustling with activities be more fitting? Deciding when to move to a senior living community is right for your loved one can be a difficult decision. How does a person know the time is right? Luckily, it’s not a decision you have to make on your own. Usually there are some tell-tale signs that it’s time to have a conversation with them. While all the statistics and evidence point to a more fulfilling lifestyle in an independent living community, the decision is still a difficult one for so many seniors and their loved ones. Indeed, you may go through a myriad of emotions. You might feel angry or embarrassed that you are unable to maintain your current home. Or, maybe you are grieving the loss of a home filled with memories. Or, the thought of leaving everything you know can make you feel vulnerable and anxious; like you’re losing control of your life. Whatever emotions you might be feeling, please know they are completely normal. But we also want you to know you are not alone in this. For many seniors, a move to independent living has opened a wonderful new chapter in life. A chapter filled with new interests, new friends and greater, yes, greater independence.
