Aging adults are living longer than ever before and senior living care has expanded to accommodate our boomer population and older loved ones, providing them with a full and happy life for as long as possible.
Retirees are now finding themselves caring for aging parents and young families are challenged with caring for two generations – children and parents. It’s not unusual today for people who are caring for their older parents or grandparents to become exhausted, leaving them to wish there was a different solution that they could feel good about. Quality assisted living community can be the solution that was hoped for.
Perhaps your loved one is struggling with activities of daily life, like bathing, dressing, shopping, cooking, and mobility. Or, maybe they’re not taking their prescribed medications in the right dose or on time. Often, families must leave their aging loved ones at home while they’re out working, but this leaves the family worried and the older adult isolated and lonely.
How An Assisted Living Facility Can Help
Attentive staff at a high-quality assisted living facility will help with individualized care plans so medical and daily living activities and safety concerns are eliminated for the family, who can now work or vacation without worrying about their loved one suffering at home alone.
Instead, your loved one can thrive in an assisted living facility with many opportunities to participate in group exercises, physical therapy, and creative social and educational activities within the community. The residents don’t need to worry about driving and can choose to go out to restaurants, theater and local events by the facility’s transportation, riding along with trained and professional caregivers to look out for their wellbeing.
New friendships can be made with other residents and the caring and compassionate employees. Healthy meals are provided, and medical assistance can be as quick as a button away.
