Many seniors and their families choose assisted living communities for the high level of care they provide. However, making sure a loved one has help with activities of daily living like bathing, dressing, and grooming is a top priority.
Ensuring loved ones are comfortable and have access to various activities and social opportunities with peers is a close second.
Retirement communities are known for their amenities. However, most assisted living communities are designed to give residents a convenient and comfortable lifestyle.
In addition to the high level of personal care, residents also have access to a beautiful selection of services and amenities.
Today’s assisted living communities are designed for comfort and convenience. Residents typically have access to the following high-end services and amenities.
The Convenience of a Maintenance-Free Lifestyle
Retirement is about enjoying a stress-free life.
Mobility issues, chronic health conditions, and the inability to drive can make it difficult for seniors to manage the responsibilities of daily life.
Residents can spend the day relaxing or socializing with friends while the assisted living staff takes care:
- Apartment maintenance
- Medication management
In addition, Seniors in assisted living communities benefit from the convenience of access to delicious and nutritious meals prepared by culinary experts.
Assisted living communities offer residents a resort-like lifestyle with personal healthcare and support.
Amenities and Activities
Too many seniors experience isolation, boredom, and loneliness. Yet, older adults are significantly happier and healthier when busy and socially active.
Today’s seniors are social and enjoy spending time with peers. Therefore, amenities are arguably the most critical factor when choosing an assisted living community.
Seniors want to have fun! They want to have access to various amenities that improve and enhance their lives.
Depending on the assisted living community, residents typically have access to the following amenities:
- Beauty salon/barber parlor
- Comfortable apartments with spacious floor plans
- Gazebos, sunrooms, and covered patios
- Fitness center
- Private dining room
- Sundries shop
Assisted living communities keep residents mentally and physically active with:
- Movie nights
- Book clubs
- Art classes
- Bridge, Scrabble, and card groups
- Exercise classes
- Cultural trips
- Lunch outings to local area restaurants of interest
- Volunteer committees
The Convenience of Innovative Technology
Seniors are more comfortable with and are adopting technology more than ever before. According to Pew Research, 3 out of 4 baby boomers use a smartphone, 52% own a tablet, and 59% are active on social media.
Assisted living owners meet this need by making it convenient for residents to access innovative technology such as free WiFi and virtual communication tools.
