If you’re looking at senior living options for yourself or a loved one, you may be unfamiliar with the many benefits a community can offer. Families are often surprised at the features and services that are available to support an active and engaged lifestyle.
You may also be unaware of just how different each senior living community can be. How do you decide, then? The key is defining the features and amenities that would support a desired lifestyle and then making sure the community you decide to call home can meet those expectations.
We think Tenfold’s Bruceville Point is a perfect example of a senior living community that exceeds what our residents are searching for.
Standard senior living features
The following are standard features you’ll likely find in the senior living communities you visit:
Many houses in the U.S. were not built with aging in mind. However, senior living residences are move-in ready and designed to be accessible and age-friendly. They can also be personalized to create your new home.
Assistance with daily tasks
As we grow older, a helping hand might be needed with the basic tasks of daily living, such as bathing, dressing or grooming. Senior living communities provide a trained staff to assist the residents when desired.
Healthy dining programs
Eating well is just as essential as we grow older although it can become more difficult to accomplish. Communities provide healthy dining programs and meet a resident’s dietary restrictions.
Activities and social events
Boredom or becoming sedentary can create a negative impact on both physical and emotional health. Senior living communities provide a calendar of activities and opportunities to interact with the other residents.
Setting and reaching wellness goals are key in aging and living well. Although the opportunities can become more elusive when living at home, a community will typically provide a fitness center or classes for the residents to use.
When driving is no longer possible, people can become socially isolated, especially if there are few transportation alternatives. A community will provide transportation for medical appointments and scheduled trips for shopping or entertainment.
Safety and security
We can experience increased anxiety or fear as we grow older, particularly if living at home alone. Senior living provides security alarms in both the community and personal residences – as well as the reassurance that someone is available when needed.
