Assisted Living is a Good Choice for Many Seniors
Assisted Living is a new paradigm in wellness and engagement, and is built on a European social model. It is designed for seniors who do not require 24-hour nursing care but rather just need a little assistance with daily living. An assisted living community provides a secure and comfortable environment that lets you or your loved one age in place. Furthermore, it gives family members peace of mind knowing that their elderly parent or relative is receiving the care they need.
Many communities offer a range of amenities that include private suites, libraries, theater, fitness centers as well as creative and wellness programs. Some of the services typically provided by assisted living communities are daily meals, medication management, help with bathing and dressing and transportation. With a home-like atmosphere, seniors have the opportunity for companionship and to develop new friendships and interests.
Assisted living can also provide a safer option for many seniors than living alone as help is much closer at hand. According to the National Institute of Health, “More than one in three people age 65 years or older falls each year. The risk of falling -- and fall-related problems -- rises with age.” In fact, over 1.6 million U.S. seniors go to emergency rooms for fall-related injuries every year.
