When it comes to helping older seniors simplify their lives and reduce their overall responsibilities, moving to assisted living is one of the most effective options around. There are plenty of reasons to consider a transition to assisted living, but these are five of the most critical.

Increased activity and social life

 

A lack of enriching activities to take part in can reduce an older loved one’s quality of life. While living in an assisted living community, they can take part in a variety of group social activities and attend events with others around their age. This provides an outlet for interaction, while also helping to stimulate their mind and body, vastly improving long-term health.

 

Help with daily activities

 

For some seniors, the activities of daily living can be difficult to accomplish, and act as a hurdle to enjoying their lives to the fullest. Senior living communities help to remove this obstacle from your loved one’s path, by offering daily assistance with tasks like bathing, dressing, and meal preparation. Knowing their daily needs will be covered, they can concentrate on living their lives and enjoying the hobbies and interests they love.

 

Delicious, healthy meals

 

Nutrition plays a critical role in overall health, and for seniors, what they eat can hold great sway over the severity of certain conditions and diseases. In most assisted living communities, meals are prepared with senior health in mind, and crafted to provide the greatest benefit to their physical and mental well-being. What’s more is the fact that these meals are served family style, allowing your loved one to keep experiencing the joy of a hearty, home cooked plate of food while socializing with friends.

Peace of mind

 

Knowing that they will be taken care of and that they still have independence to live life as they wish helps take a lot of stress off seniors. With a whole community at their back, your loved one can rest easy and enjoy their life instead of worrying about who’s taking care of their day to day needs.

 

Investment for the future

 

By moving to an assisted living community, seniors can simultaneously promote healthy lifestyle options and prepare for the future should their condition change. At The Cottages, residents have custom care plans through our CareSteps program, and their level of care can adapt to meet their individual needs.
