You are looking for a safer living environment
Families often have to make home modifications and hire in-home care to make the home safe for seniors. From medical alert systems to shower grab-bars, wheelchair-accessible ramps, and more — these expenses can add up. Assisted living communities, however, are designed for accessibility and increased senior mobility, helping seniors avoid falls and accidents and providing access to medical assistance, whether it’s medical staff within the community or accessibility to a nearby hospital.
You need additional assistance with activities of daily living (ADLs)
Activities of daily living (ADLs), housekeeping, and yard work can often be a burden to seniors. Having the details of living taken care of in an assisted living community allows seniors the freedom to enjoy aging while taking advantage of assisted living activities and amenities. Assisted living provides expert help with ADLs to allow seniors more independence for the activities that make them happy, which in turn offers a better quality of life.
You are looking for more social opportunities
Loneliness and social isolation have been linked to poor health outcomes and many seniors suffer from isolation for the following reasons:
- Retired with limited access to social opportunities
- Loneliness from a spouse, partner, or friends that may have passed away
- Physical and/or transportation challenges that create obstacles for attending social events
