Seniors often worry that moving into an assisted living community means giving up their independence. However, this is not the case. Assisted living communities and their staff strive to help residents stay as independent as possible. With the help of a professional nursing team, seniors can still enjoy the freedoms they did before moving into an assisted living facility.
How to Stay Independent in Assisted Living
Here are a few ways assisted living communities and staff members help their residents stay independent.
Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle
Assisted living communities can offer help serving older adults with daily activities such as bathing, eating, and dressing. This gives seniors the freedom to live as independently as they wish, with the comfort of knowing that help is always available if needed. Assisted living communities also assist with medication management, scheduling, and transportation to doctor appointments to help seniors stay on top of their health, so family members don’t have to worry.
Enjoy a Social Life
Assisted living communities are a great way for seniors to stay connected with family and friends while making new friends as well. Assisted living communities provide endless opportunities for socializing with friends and family. Residents can schedule regular visits with their family or go out with friends for parties, gatherings, and holidays.
Assisted living communities also provide lots of activities to keep seniors social on campus. From weekly card games to crafts to local entertainment, there is something for everyone to enjoy with the convenience of staying in place.
Stay Physically Active
Assisted living communities can also help residents stay physically active. Residents can participate in group exercise classes or stretch in the fitness room on campus. Residents can even choose to have a team member create a personalized exercise program tailored to their goals. Assisted living communities also provide transportation to off-campus activities if you prefer to get out and about.
