Live life your way! As people age, the burden of maintaining a house can become time-consuming and, with today’s price increases, more expensive. Living stress-free, featured in this article, is Reason #3 of our Five Reasons to Join Senior Living Blog Series.
A stress-free lifestyle is a healthy one. Studies show that as we age, the cells in our bodies are not as efficient in supporting the body’s natural response to stress. Choosing to live in a senior living community can help alleviate the hassles and stress associated with living on one’s own and maintaining a home.
How do we cultivate a stress-free lifestyle for residents?
Residents live a casual, easy lifestyle unburdened of doing chores, planning and preparing their own meals, driving to appointments, or maintaining a house. They enjoy the convenience of three restaurant-style meals a day in a lively dining room, housekeeping and laundry services, and scheduled transportation to appointments and outings. With only one monthly payment, residents no longer need to worry about juggling multiple utilities, maintenance, or repair bills.
Enjoy more of what you want
Seniors have more free time so they can be as busy as they want, enjoying more of what they want. Residents can enjoy living in as much as going out with bright common spaces, activity rooms, and landscaped outdoor areas, along with other plentiful opportunities to lead an active life. Residents can spend time together for an impromptu game of chess or a cup of tea in their choice of common spaces or participate in scheduled activities. Based on resident preferences, we offer a full array of robust social events and scheduled activities such as fitness programs, social outings, happy hours, live music, art classes, educational lectures, and language classes.
Peace of Mind
Rest assured, when seniors live in a senior living community, they benefit from living in a safe, secure environment with access to 24/7 on-site care. Our compassionate, dedicated staff is on duty around the clock, when, and if residents need it. Staff members support residents’ medical, physical, nutritional, and psychosocial needs with daily care and engagement. Additionally, our staff members are trained to assist in daily support functions, such as bathing, dressing, medication management, and especially the ability to immediately respond to emergency situations. Furthermore, families can gain peace of mind that their loved one has immediate access to a high level of care in a safe environment.
