Is Senior Living the Right Decision for you?

Are you or a loved one considering their lifestyle options to help relieve these common experiences of growing older? 

While the needs of each individual are different, these are only a few of the challenges often faced when living at home. Yet, there is a solution that can not only simplify – but also create – a higher quality of life: a senior living community. 

If your family is contemplating how best to make the senior living decision, the following information can help. 

Tips for Making the Senior Living Decision 

Consider the Possibilities 

Senior living communities are designed to make life not only easier but more fulfilling as well. Communities provide everything from an accessible residence to engaging activities and everything in between in helping residents achieve an enriched life. 

When making your senior living decision, you might discover it is the perfect place to call home. You or your loved one can continue living independently while having access to a helping hand if assistance is needed. 


Creating a Perfect Match 

Any of the following situations can make living at home more challenging. If these sound familiar, you might want to consider how a community addresses the issue. 

  1. Your home requires climbing stairs or needs renovating to become more age-friendly and accessible. 

  1. You or a loved one needs assistance with basic tasks, such as bathing, getting dressed or managing medications. 

  1. It has become more difficult to participate in activities or events and social isolation is becoming a risk. 

  1. Finding or participating in exercise or fitness classes is becoming more of a challenge. 

  1. It may now be harder to shop and prepare healthy meals. Substituting snacks or processed foods might occur more often. 

  1. You may have lost close friends or family members and are finding it more difficult to meet new people or spend time with friends.  

  1. It might be a challenge to access alternative transportation options if you are no longer driving. 

  1. You or a loved one may be feeling less secure or safe and begin experiencing increased anxiety. 

The Advantages Offered 

To better understand why senior living could be such a great fit, compare the above situations with the benefits that a community offers: 

Questions to Ask 

Asking these questions can assist in making the senior living decision that is right for you and your family: 

  1. Does the community feel warm and welcoming upon arrival? Will you be proud to call it home? 

  1. Will your new home fit your preferences and be easily personalized to make it your own?  

  1. Are the staff members friendly and knowledgeable? Do they appear to enjoy their work? 

  1. What is the ratio of staff-to-resident? Will they be able to respond to your requests in a timely manner? 

  1. If possible, arrange to share a meal with the other residents. Is it appealing and delicious? Is the setting engaging? Will you look forward to mealtime? 

  1. Are the activities offered of interest? Are there opportunities to resurrect an old hobby or try your hand at a new one? 

  1. Do the residents appear happy and contented? Do they seem excited about their daily lives? 

  1. How does the community support the residents to remain independent? 

  1. Are there opportunities to easily meet and make new friends? How does the community make new residents feel welcome? 

  1. What is the cost of the community and what services and amenities are included?
