Fun and New Friends
Enjoying friends and an active social life are vital to health and happiness. Assisted Living programs offer a range of social and recreational activities, such as entertainment, parties and art classes, and other opportunities to meet new friends, especially at meals.
Keeping Spouses Together
Assisted Living communities provide a place for spouses to remain together in face of frailty, forgetfulness, and health challenges. Appropriate support is provided by trained staff to facilitate as full and safe a life as possible for each spouse.
Typically, three nutritious meals a day are provided. Normally, the meals are offered in a restaurant-style and social environment.
Exercise and Wellness Programs
Classes and counseling encourages healthy and active living, an important part of Assisted Living.
Freedom from Home Maintenance
Responsibilities and expenses of home maintenance are draining. Assisted living communities provide a home-like environment with the onerous chores of maintenance, housekeeping, grocery shopping, cooking, dishwashing, and laundry. Residents spend time and energy instead on social, exercise, wellness, and recreational activities.
Safety and Security
Impaired mobility and balance increase fall risk. Assisted living communities improve safety and security with specialized installations and trained staff on site 24 hours a day.
Assisted Living Communities provide transportation to doctors’ appointments and for other purposes, such as shopping or movies.
Assistance with Activities of Daily Living
Activities of daily living, such as bathing, dressing, and medication management are provided at Assisted Living Communities.
Assisted Living communities offer peace of mind to concerned family members.
